Coming Down from my Buzz

Apparently, Darrell Arthur did not smoke weed. Perhaps Zach Randolph can help. 


Either way, what I really care about is that Arthur and Randolph, should the Grizzlies trade for him, play better than Pau Gasol did. (Do you think a toke or two before the game would have improved Gasol's defense or slowed him down? Please comment below.) 

Last year sort of felt like a really bad trip. Maybe it's paranoia, but I have this nagging feeling that the team is going to lose 50-60 games this year as well.

Even worse: the Grizzlies might trade for Randolph, who doesn't play defense or win basketball games, but does take away a great deal of salary cap flexibility...

isn't chris wallace known for smart trades? i.e. kwame brown. wouldn't picking up randolph be par for the course?

Yes, we may have acquired Kwame Brown so we could have the flexibility to acquire Zach Randolph.

ohhhhhh david, you don't want randolph. but i certainly hope wallace takes him away from new york. that would be really, really great.

David Jones said...

You're right. I don't.

I am quite relived to hear that those talks are dead.

It was nice to have something to think about though...
