we couldnt make it through a televised NBA event on national TV without confirming what everyone around the league already knows despite the owners saying that they have assets....IE: Selling the 36th pick for cash.
I am absolutely stocked we got Thomas Robinson....couldnt be happier. He and Cousins are going to grab every rebound this side of the Mississippi. Oh and by the way, thank you ESPN for the quality entertainment from the sideline reporters when they interviewed the new draftees family and close friends. Just some priceless moments of people praising god, espousing the values of their sons determination and hard work.....when all they should really be saying is "IM RICH B****!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" However, this post isnt about that or Thomas Robinson.
Its about the s***-break ownership demonstrating to everyone in the league that "we are liars who cant be trusted and are still completely broke!!!!!!!".....just selling a pick for cash and getting nothing else?? Why didnt they have the Pacers throw in a box of condoms, Larry Birds underalls, a photo of Sam Perkins with the caption "Dont Do Drugs!!!", and a steak sandwich from Quiznos? All joking aside, couldnt they have said "OK, Indiana we will give you the 36th pick for "X" dollars and your 1st or 2nd round pick in 2015 or 2016".....hell, i would have taken their second round pick in 6 or 7 years JUST so we got some type of a basketball asset. Yes, it still would have been about the cash, but at least "Kings trade the 36th pick to Indiana for a draft pick in 2016 and cash" looks TEN TIMES better than "Kings sell 36th pick for cash"....and i wonder what the cash will be used for?....make payroll, pay John Salmons barbershop bill, cover the advance George made to a porn actress who needs to get paid before she escorts him all over the strip?? The possibilities are endless.
In the words of Jacobeem Mugatu in the cult classic "I FEEL LIKE IM TAKING CRAZY PILLS!!!!!!"
