The thing is, I can't decide if I'm more edgy because the trade deadline was such a disappointment, or because as a Rockets fan (yes, I realize it seems like I root for more teams than actually exist; it's a running theme, deal with it) I am completely perplexed by this move. I won't get into specifics, but does this really help the team? I suppose I could always root for the Magic again (sarcasm), like I did when they had that amazing Penny-Shaq-Nick Anderson-Dennis Scott-Brian Shaw lineup. Anytime you're bringing Horace off the bench, you're a team for the ages (serious).
In any case I'm sad to see T-Mac hurt. Again. I'm always a fan of unlimited yet seemingly, hopelessly unfulfilled potential. I see a lot of that in myself I suppose. Griffey, Jr. Bo Jackson. T-Mac. These players I really feel for and similar players I will always root for, because there's just something I find infinitely compelling about an individual facing unfathomable expectWHOA whoa whoa. Is he reading VENUS MAGAZINE?
"Well I'll be GODDAMN. The description reads 'Women in Music, Art, Film and Fashion,' but it's so much more than that. I have such a profound level of respect for OUCHIE! I think that was a paper cut...nope! Nope just a brief scrape!"
So the NBA trade deadline passes without nearly as much excitement as last year (Kidd, Shaq). No matter, NBA. Who cares if the biggest news in your industry today is Sir Charles returning to broadcasting, or that the Tiger Woods news completely eclipsed everything currently going on in your industry. Who cares? You've got the whole Boston/L.A. thing going again, right?
To the picks.
To the picks.

I hate it when it seems this easy.
