    Bill Simmons. Read his Grantland article. He does a great job of dissecting the decision.

    I don't like the Bulls at all, but Noah and Gasol should be fun to watch.

    Simmons is a good NBA historian, and that's about it.

    His articles are pretty tired nowadays, but he brought us Grantland which has a bunch of better writers to read, so I give him props for that.

    Did you read the McConnaughey Emmy acceptance speech that was posted this week. That Shit was hilarious.

    Nope not at all. However I cant stand Chris Broussard even more.

    Simmons' articles are decent but as an on-camera analyst he's so insufferable. But yeah he's not nearly as bad as Broussard and his endless mystery "sources" for bogus signing rumors and meetings, aka himself.

    ESPN/ABC sucks in general, they're all puppets. I like Doug Collins, and that's about it besides the coveted Hubie Brown when he gets a rare slot.

    Gasol to the Bulls. Unfortunately not in a sign and trade as I was hoping for but good for him.

    May not be a sign and trade but I still think the Lakers would be odds on favourites to pick up Boozer when he is amnestied - with Houston being the other frontrunner in my mind.

    I am not sure how to feel about this, it is similar emotions to when we signed Boozer. We swung for the fences and missed on the big names and grabbed a consolation prize that is very good player but questionable fit. To me there's players out there who I would have taken first but I am not upset as I have always rated Pau. I just hope Taj Gibson is cool with this.

    At least there has been a flurry of activity instead of the random conjecture of the last few weeks, some really interesting moves being made. I am still confused by why the fuck Isiaah Thomas went to PHX though?

    Petros and Matt "Money" Smith basically called Broussard out for this during one of their shows this past week.

    Indiana is imploding. They're now even getting worse in the offseason. Charlotte, with the signing of Lance Stephenson, is looking like a top-five team in the East.

    Lakers claim Boozer, honestly not really sure how I feel about it. I guess they won the bid with only 3.25 million so it's not that bad.

    Exactly - the value of a guy like Boozer is surely relative to his wage, at 16+ million he is the definition of albatross but for 3.25 million he is a good get - particularly when the days of expecting 20/10 are long gone. The only question is how long before he rubs Kobe the wrong way with his carry on.

    Today I watched the Pau Gasol introductory presser and I immediately see why he is so respected as a person over and above his rep as a player. I haven't really paid any attention to him off the court and it is nice to see such a smart, engaging and humble professional athlete.
