The doldrums of late summer/early autumn are officially upon us, and as we all know, that means NOTHING is happening in the NBA. I have spent an entire week trying to think of something meaningful, funny, or otherwise to write about.
Well, I’ve got nothing.
I refuse to write about Mickael Pietrus, the blockbuster trade of Steven Hunter and Bobby Jones for Reggie Evans and Ricky Sanchez, or another NBA player getting caught with marijuana in his car (a side note, STOP SMOKING IN YOUR CAR YOU IDIOTS–JUST SMOKE AT YOUR MILLION DOLLAR HOMES!!!).
So, what am I left with? I have no NBA TV, so that rules out the Eurobasket tournament. Phil Jackson was inducted into the Hall of Fame… yup, just covered that one. Isiah Thomas continues to suck at everything, but that doesn’t count as news. Nor does Dinosaur Oden’s knee-ache (remember reading about how dinosaurs were so tall that it took them like 2 minutes to feel a pin prick in their foot because of the massive expanse of nerves the sensation had to travel through? Dinosaur Oden ladies and gentlemen). Kevin McHale traded Al Jefferson to Larry Bird, er, the Pacers for Darrell Armstrong and a 3rd round pick, that is nearly newsworthy… be honest, you had to check to see if I was kidding about that one didn’t you.
