A similar sentiment has been circulating in the moments we've breathed since louismg posted Sam Amick's ultra-fast injury update: Kevin Martin's injury means more than 'Kevin Martin is out 4-6 weeks.'
Kelly Dwyer of Yahoo! enunciates those musings very clearly:
I have a feeling Petrie was headed in this direction before this 3-1 streak; Martin's injury definitely adds another notch regardless of the eventual win.
But Petrie doesn't panic. After the last eight months, I wouldn't be surprised if Mike Bibby was still a King next summer. I wouldn't be surprised to see Brad Miller stick around, even if he continues his current production and contenders come calling. (That was the most improbable clause I've written in a year.) Petrie will wait for his deal, for better or worse.
(This post was, more than anything, a reason to KELLY DWYER HAS BEEN FREED! A++ to Yahoo! for giving KD a blog of his own. World domination is forthcoming.)
