Theme of NBA 2010 Free Agency - comfort and loyalty. Majority stay right where they are and soak in the riches.
Tony La Russa - one of the greatest baseball managers of all time. I can respect your honesty to state your feelings on the Arizona issue, but what were you thinking? I'm not touching how I disagree with your stance but rather questioning if you discussed this with any of your Latino players. Albert Pujols, anyone?
Are we seeing, or have we seen, the reign of Federer come to an end? Looks like it.
How sad is the story about Randall Cunningham's son? My thoughts and prayers to you and your family.
Hey, Vincent Jackson, you might want to consider changing your stance on not reporting to camp. Two DUI's leading to a 3 game suspension. I think your public image could use a boost.
Some things never change...Benson and Vick.
Pretty obvious Phil was coming back when Byron took the Cleveland job. Did anyone mention that was his backup option and the Lakers were Plan A?
Interesting to see how full circle the salary cap is coming on the Hawks. It allowed you to sign some of the players who helped you win the Cup. Now, you are on the other painful side of staying on top and having to shed key players. Steeger was one of my favorites and will be missed. I just read about Ladd and am now really sick of the unraveling.
First free agent contracts...Darko for $20 million and Drew Gooden for $32 million. Really? You couldn't find a better way to invest that money. I am a GM for hire and have a few ideas.
Doesn't it make you laugh all these billionaire owners having to sit down and run a sales pitch to a bunch of twenty-somethings? Who writes the checks? They have to go home at night and laugh. Honey, how was your day? Well, two of the most successful business men in the world came in and told me how they could turn me into a global icon and a rich man like them. One of them had never even heard of Akron but he was about as tall as me. Have you ever heard of this thing called Power Point? However, I told them thanks and we'll see. A few more are coming in tomorrow to do the same thing.
Yeah, that's my $730 million villa and you can have it.
