Best thing i've read in a while..

The then-New Jersey Nets picked Kyle Korver with the 51st overall selection in the 2003 NBA Draft and sold his draft rights to the Philadelphia 76ers for $125,000.

The cash covered the Nets' Summer League bill and they spent the leftover money on a new copy machine.

Korver developed into one of the NBA's most valued swingmen.

“We gave away a good player for summer league,†says Rod Thorn, the Nets GM at the time. “It was just one of those things we had to do. At least, that’s how I rationalized it.â€

rumors of the league pitting spurs at cavs for opening tip have to be false.  i'm used to the lack of respect, but the champs always get the rings/banner at home first game.

i was at last nights game... sessions is definitely better than players we've had in recent history but collison outshined him so much more... i think they should run collison as starter and mccallum behind him

im a huge collison since i was a classmate of his at ucla and he helped me win $200 in my 2009 fantasy league but he's definitely a player who is too good to be a bench player but not good enough to start and doesnt have the characteristics you look for in a 6th man

 

he had a good game but i think he'll probably end up playing how he did in his tenures with indiana and dallas

 

sessions is also another talented limbo pg in that sense

 

i really think they should have kept isiah as his contract seems very very reasonable.

UCLA ALUMNI HERE! we have 3 players from ucla - hollins, collison, and david wear (LOL!)

 

anyways.

 

last nights game was good. stat sheets looked good, 6 players with double digits is a big improvement. still needs to improve on the turnovers. 20 is just too many. 

 

but im happy with the team finally after all these years. i actually dont miss isiah. the dudes good, but i think 6 players scoring double digits means the ball is just moving better.

 

 

edit: shit. if embidd is like healthy with noel, its like the new twin towers.
