Hand in Hand


First of all, if I were a Blazer fan (anybody? anybody?). I'd be PISSED. Who wants to see their franchise guy sporting another team's hat. And on some 'Do The Right Thing' shit...The Celtics? That hat is WEAK. Second of all (thanks to John Canzano for pointing this out), look at Z-Bo's eyes. Let's just say this photo-op was very "green"-inspired.

THC, you needed someone else to point out Zach's eyes in that picture?

It's guys like Zach Randolph that ruin the rep of the league for the rest of the players. He makes me feel like Chris Berman Jr.

Somebody buy that kid a Dwayne Wade jersey.

Yeah and how many of them did you get back? He probably swapped those with some he knows have hot serial #'s.

its not as bad as joe forte showing up to a game as a celtic wearing a magic johnson jersey

or allen iverson wearing a bill russell jersey

AI has earned the right to wear whatever fucking jersey he wants. . .plus it's not like russell is just some bland HOF'er of hometown yore. he's fucking bill russell. that's about respect for the men who built this palace, something bigger than that hometeam allegiance bullshit. what's that saying. . game recognize game?

actually, even if russell were just a great celtic, like jojo white or something. . .that's one franchise hero acknowledging that, without equally impressive rivals, their franchise's history would be one-sided and not mean shit, they would never have been spurred on to true competitive greatness, etc.

but if you buy that latter argument, then forte could have the right to rock the magic jersey. actually, you've got to do something before you can officially identify yourself as part of a franchise's history.

When i saw iverson sitting there in the other teams colors, i knew the season was dead that year.

and then they went and proved me right.

Yeah, ouch. Now the Suns have a conventional lineup...three offensive weapons instead of five, and they won't get those draft picks until Nash is playing one of the Gallagher brothers in a made-for-TV movie about Oasis instead of playing basketball. Very depressing. As for Atlanta, with JJ, Josh Smith, and Marvelous Marvin...are they relevant again? If they can land a legit big guy next summer, that might actually be a good team.

we'll see if JJ's worth all that money, should be interesting next year in atlanta to say the least, maybe they'll actually get people to show up

i still think they have too many swingmen though

10 small forwards, joe johnson, and a cardboard cutout of eddy curry.

I still don't think anyone will show up. Atlanta just doesn't care.

Speaking of weird trades, have you heard about the Grizzly Bears trading Jason Williams and James Posey for Eddie Jones?!? Hey, let's get rid of our starting point guard and top young swingman for an aging shooter with a huge contract! Sounds great! Methinks Jerry West has finally lost it if he makes that trade.
