Nets job.

Six years ago, Stefanski was the Nets GM and King was the Sixers GM. The roles are reversed now (and both teams still suck).

Had he not played up the King James thing for years and made ridiculously egotistical statements about his skills, and instead just quietly focused on the game, I would be tempted to say that it took some humility for LeBron to make this move.

But, since we had to not only suffer through THE DECISION!!!1! but his already massive ego over the last couple years, yeah, I can't say I disagree.

I'm of like mind.

If he had not displayed an outsized ego or been so persistent about crafting this global iconic image, I'd more or less support this move, enjoy its relatively unprecedented nature and watch the Heat, and fan reaction to the Heat, with much interest. I'll still watch with much interest, but now it'll be with antipathy due to how he portrayed himself, and to be honest, more so due to the fucking one hour TV special which looks worse and worse to me the more distance I get from it.

I can't take two easy set-up potshots in one night, can I?

Yes! We've signed half of the 2009 Jazz roster!

Ronnie Brewer is athletic, has funny ears, and can start at the 2. I'm down with it.

Luther Head is still available.

New Orleans rescinded their offer. I'm excited about Brewer! I think I'm more excited about him than I would have been for Redick.

I think it's really funny how much people like Simmons have been pimping what a great future the Nets have, and their first big hiring is fucking Billy King. Will he be better than he was in Philly? It'd be hard not to. Still ... what? Of all the guys, him?

I really want to know what these teams know about Pritchard that I don't.

That's hilarious - thanks for sharing.

This one, I think, is just as strong, if not stronger:
