What to do with Loui Eriksson?

I'm reminded of the following goodfellas movie scene whenever I think of Eriksson (whether he has a good or bad game):
Now the guy's got Paulie as a partner. Any problems, he goes to Paulie. Trouble with the bill? He can go to Paulie. Trouble with the cops, deliveries, Tommy, he can call Paulie. But now the guy's gotta come up with Paulie's money every week, no matter what. Business bad? "**** you, pay me." Oh, you had a fire? "**** you, pay me." Place got hit by lightning, huh? "**** you, pay me." Also, Paulie could do anything. Especially run up bills on the joint's credit. And why not? Nobody's gonna pay for it anyway. And as soon as the deliveries are made in the front door, you move the stuff out the back and sell it at a discount. You take a two hundred dollar case of booze and you sell it for a hundred. It doesn't matter. It's all profit. And then finally, when there's nothing left, when you can't borrow another buck from the bank or buy another case of booze, you bust the joint out
Eriksson had a great game? Loui says, I don't care, **** you pay me.
Eriksson had a bad game? Loui says, I don't care, **** you pay me.
Team is in a tight cap crunch? Loui says, I don't care, **** you pay me.
