I’ve been spending the past couple of weeks working on an article for another website. Rest easy, my legions of fans (both of you), I’m not leaving Hoops Addict. With Ryan’s blessing, I’ve been focusing on the NBA GM Fixit Contest, in which I will compete with two other bloggers for the GM position of the Toronto Raptors. The contest starts June 5, and the three Raptors entries will be posted on the morning of June 7. Here are some afterthoughts on my own work.
I Compared Big Ben To A Pregnant Woman
Yes, I compared Ben Wallace to Angelina Jolie. She may be pregnant, but she’s still synonymous with desirability, I think. Maybe a pregnant Angelina is synonymous with Big-Ben-ain’t-goin’-nowhere.
I Love That BC Is Our GM
I Like Our Young’uns A Lot
I want to see our young players continue to develop in Toronto, particularly rookies Charlie Villanueva and Jose Calderon. I want to see Rafael Araujo and Pape Sow get a second chance (third, in Hoffa’s case). I want to see Roko-Leni Ukic in action. But I just can’t see where Uros Slokar will fit in our deep rotation of four’s. According to Slokar’s scouting report, his strengths are redundant in a lineup with Chris Bosh and Charlie V. I see him staying in Europe getting starter’s minutes with Bargnani getting drafted. Then, when Slokar’s stock is up, trade him.
I Wrote Almost 1000 Words
A thousand words is actually quite a lot when you don’t know much about the collective bargaining agreement, plus the salary cap status and needs of 30 teams. In the words of Dr. Evil, “Throw me a frickin’ bone!” – please vote for my contest entry on NBA GM Fixit!
