Thursday Footnotes

  • There's some healthy Nene foreshadowing in Marty McNeal's column, with this Geoff Petrie quote: "We want to maintain flexibility, but I'll be the first to say that's subject to change. We might be willing to take on future money, but if it doesn't lead to improved future performances over a number of years, it doesn't make a lot of sense." HMMMMM. I get the feeling a trade for Nene is going to be like a Ron Artest step-back three. "No no no YES!" We'll curse for a few days, and then we'll get used to the idea.
  • Steve Novak has played 87 minutes this season. He has scored 47 points. I'd say those last three on his record were a big deal.
  • Good news: Excellent bloggers Henry Abbott, J.E. Skeets and Matt from Hardwood Paroxysm will all be in New Orleans for All-Star Weekend. And I'll be holding down the TV/web fort at FanHouse.
