• I put out a missing persons report for Rashard Lewis, Hedo Turkoglu, John Salmons, Richard Hamilton, Antawn Jamison and Danilo Gallinari. If anyone has seen these people please notify their loved ones and respective teams.
• Due to a virus that infected Dwight Howard, Mickael Pietrus, J.J. Redick, and Jameer Nelson the Orlando Magic’s starting lineup against the Milwaukee Bucks was Rashard Lewis, Quentin Richardson, Marcin Gortat, Vince Carter and Chris Duhon….Ouch. For their sake I hope it was only a 24-hour virus.
• I thought the crowd and the pressure would get to Miami when they went to Cleveland. Then Joey Graham was announced in the starting lineup and I remembered how much the Cavs suck.
• I am working on a top 5 and bottom 5 GM’s list. It’s harder than it seems, but rest assured Michael Jordan will be on the worst list. Here is a link to their draft picks since the team’s inception in 2004 . The only good picks were Emeka Okafor, Raymond Felton, and Jared Dudley (good for a #22 pick), all of whom have been traded to other teams. The Bobcats also consistently trade for worse players to save money. He’s no Isiah Thomas but he’s not exactly putting together a great resume either.
Make sure you guys check out Jay at The Brink of Sanity and also peep his Knicks podcast. Considering that the team looks better than they have in a decade, this guy’s gotta be on cloud nine right now.
