Just wanted to quickly comment on last night's NBA move:
If I were a Nuggets fan today, and thank sweet Baby Jesus I'm not, I wouldn't be very happy. The Nuggs basically traded away their only defensive player for nothing. Why? Nene Hilario and Kenyon Martin. Nene will make almost $9 million next year, and Kenyon Martin still has $46 million and 3 years left on his contract. Nene is coming off ball cancer and K-Mart is the only player in the league that has had 2 microfacture surgeries. You think they overspent on those guys? It always leaves a sour taste in the mouth when a move is purely financial, as this clearly is. Nuggets fan, enjoy giving up 125 points per game next year. (also, you should ditch your new, gay uniforms, and go back to your old, sweet uniforms. And get Fat Lever back. Bye.)
The other side of this is, of course, the Clippers. They had a ton of free agency money to offer to Josh Smith, Andre Iguodala, or Emeka Okafor, all of whom are better, younger players than Camby. I know those guys are restricted Free Agents and that their teams would probably match, but what was the risk in trying to sign one of those guys to an offer sheet? Was the Camby deal coming off the table? I highly doubt it. Josh Smith wouldn't have looked good throwing down tomohawk jams in a Clipper uniform, would he? This is just another example of the Clippers being the Clippers.
The only good thing about this is that Camby will fit into the Clippers offense because he doesn't need the ball much. Thank goodness for that. With Baron Davis at the point he probably wasn't going to get it anyway. Oh, and Clipper Fan, don't get too excited. You still have Cuttino Mobley at 2 gaurd. Enjoy that.
