It's been a tough few days. Got this cold and it has really put me down for the count. Just coming out of it and I have so much to catch up on. Let's see what we've missed.
Lucky Man - Seems that Sheldon Williams and Cadace Parker have eloped and are now married. At least we know he can score (yes it was cheap, but c'mon).
B$#(% Move - TO is upset because he feels that Romo and Witten spend all of their time coming up with plays for Romo to go to Witten. Ok, I like TO, but this is some jealous b#$@( stuff. If he was a woman, you'd have to be done with him. Too much DRAMA.
Diamond in the Rough - If you haven't seen Stephen Curry play yet, you're missing a treat. Curry plays for Davidson who made a splash last year in the NCAAs and this year Curry has moved to the point instead of his natural shooting guard position. This kid has no conscious and tends to take good shots for his team to win. Davidson isn't as talented as they were last year, but take some time to watch this kid before he goes to the NBA next year.
Melo Out - I always knew Melo could score, but matching the Ice Man, George Gervin's record for most points in a quarter (33 points). Congrats Melo, and maybe the sadder part is they needed those points to beat the Timberwolves. I'm with Charles Barkley on this one,....you won't score 33 points on me in a quarter without me getting thrown out of the game. Someone should have laid Melo out.
NBA Trades -
Suns get Jason Richardson and Jared Dudley for Boris Diaw, Sean Singletary, and Raja Bell. Not sure why this one was even done? I mean Richardson is a good scorer, but the Suns gave up their top reserve and a defensive specialist. I have to like this for the Suns for that reason, but it's not much of an upgrade. I expect Sean Singletary to be released, maybe he returns to the Suns in a few weeks.
Wizards get Mike James and Javaris Crittendon, the Hornets get Antonio Daniels (plus a conditional second round pick), and the Grizzlies get a pick (future first). You can never turn down a two for one, right? (Actually, NYSTOM, you can). But in this case, I'd have to say that the Wizards and the Hornets came out on top. I still like Crittendon and just feel he needs an opportunity. Daniels gives the Hornets a good back up for Chris Paul who can score as well as make plays for others.
