If you thought I quit blogging…you’re wrong! I took a serious break though. No excuses either. I work, I party, I chill. But I used to do that even when I was blogging, so again, no excuses. It’s been quite a while since my last entry. When I pull up my past entries, it doesn’t say “yesterday’s posting”, but rather “a while ago..” . Once I saw that I said WHOA. Time to put an end to this. So, I realized I do have quite a bit on my mind about the league happenings. Here we go:
-I know I wrote quite a few articles about Grant Hill, but wow, this guy has been putting up semi-Grant Hill-of-old numbers. Quite impressive. That being said, I think he’s reached his season peak, and of course, I fear of his inevitable season ending injury. I have already traded him in one of my fantasy leagues.
-Baron Davis is one of the best players in the league, not just one of the best POINT GUARDS. He’s finally getting some credit where it is due, but still, not enough! This guy is on the brink of a triple double every night. He’s leading one of the league’s best offenses, yet still probably not considered one of the league’s best. I know in a fantasy league of 15 people, he would be in the first round.
-Dwight Howard is a monster. The funny part is he’s only 21 (or not even?). WOW…
-Boston. No one expected these guys to do this well, this early in the season. The crazy part too is that all 3 of the BIG 3 are averaging over 20 points per game. That being said, I STILL wouldn’t have KG as the league MVP at this rate. Team MVP forsure, but right now I think you have to start thinking D.Howard.
-The Cavs truly are a one man team, and with LeBron out, they’re proving it. As I’ve set before, last year was a fluke for these guys.
-I expect Kobe to stay put for a while in L.A. On another hand, I do expect Jason Kidd to be out of N.J. by the trade deadline. With Andrew Bynum playing so well, it’ll be interesting to see if the Lakers can cook something up around him. Doubt it, but who knows.
-Why is Rip Hamilton leading the league in technical fouls and not Sheed Wallace? Weird!
That’s all folks. I will try and keep at it as much as possible.

I know lately I’ve been calling a lot of people names that aren’t so polite, so instead of ditching my rudeness, I figured I’d just put a little title on it so I can refer back to previous Idiots. Everyone loves a good idiot. Anyways, word on the street is that Varejao and Pavlovic of the Cleveland Cavliers have yet to show up to Cavs training camp. To be quite honest, I think these guys are IDIOTS (bet you didn’t see that one coming). Clearly the main problem here is money. I know these two think they’re worth more than they’re being offered, but I truly don’t think either of the two are that great of players. I genuinely believe the Cavs will not be back in the Finals, let alone the East finals. Their title run last year was pretty fluky. I still can’t believe they even got past the Pistons. The boys from Motown really melted down, and seemed a little unusual how they kept losing those games. Maybe a little Tim Donaghy style scam happened? Probably not. Back to the two clowns. Even as the Cavs made it to the Finals, Pavlovic was garbage! Both he and Larry Hughes were pretty useless, and it proved so in the actual Finals series again the Spurs. As for Varajao, he is one of those up tempo energy players, but that’s about it. He’s pretty physical, but all in all, not worth $10 milllion per season. He’s a little full of himself for now, and needs a little kick in the ass. With his clone Joakim Noah in the league, Varejao will likely get overlooked this season, as he rightfully should! If Cleveland was smart, they would have used the money they were allotting to these guys, and searched for some more valuable talent and aggressively pursued it. Instead, they’re stuck with two garbage players who think they’re 1000% better than they actually are! Good work…idiots!

Since Luke Walton and Jason Kopono signed contracts for a good dollar (see article), apparently this means that Sasha Pavlovic’s value will rise. But why? After watching the playoffs, he really wasn’t a factor in any of the series’. He’s a blessed man for being a part of LeBron’s and even Daniel Gibson’s heroics. From here, he does bring the experience of being in the finals to any team. But how valuable is a guy who barely contributed? He lacked consistency! How can you lack consistency in the NBA finals? This is why the Pistons parted way with Carlos Delfino, as he wasn’t providing efficiently on a nightly basis, and now they’re aiming for a solid replacement for Tayshaun Prince. If I’m Pavlovic’s agent, I’m thinking jackpot! I have a client who barely performed and is still going to get a raise! That’s when you know there’s a flaw in the system. The Cavs are much better off trying to get Mo Peterson. This guy can create and bring a more CONSISTENT look to the Cleveland offense. I hope Danny Ferry will have the balls to recognize this and make the right move!
Can Pavlovic hit shots with his eyes closed? I don’t think so!!
