I just got a 52 inch LED TV and I’m happy as fuck my first Lakers game I’m going to watch on it is Kobe Bryants return.
I love this Lakers squad. This has been the most enjoyable season we’ve had in years.
Mark Cuban is happy about how things have turned out these last few years. After the Mavs won the championship he declined re-signing Tyson Chandler and this was widely looked as a terrible move considering how poorly the Mavs did the following season. Now Tyson Chandler is with the Knicks and he just cannot stay healthy. This has been the case for most of Tyson Chandlers career but Mark Cuban really lucked out that the Mavs won a title with Chandler.
Then he did not go to the meeting with Deron Williams because he had to go tape his show, Shark Tank, and this was reported as a reason why Deron Williams choose to re-sign with the Nets. Deron Williams proceeded to have an awful season and now he’s been dealing with injuries of his own. I used to consider Deron Williams the second best point guard after Chris Paul and now this dude fell off in a ridiculous way. This was a guy they would have invested a max contract in; thats a lot of money and a lot of years.
Lesser talent like Jason Terry and Jason Kidd ended up signing with other teams. Jason Terry signed with the Celtics and went as far as getting the Celtics logo tattooed on himself before having a mediocre season and getting traded to the Nets. Jason Kidd signed with the Knicks and reports came out that Mark Cuban felt betrayed. Kidd had a terrible stretch in the playoffs where he didn’t make a single field goal; he ended up retiring and becoming head coach of the Nets.
Now the Mavs are in great shape in terms of their current contracts and have a lot of options moving forward while teams like the Knicks and Nets are stuck with the bad decisions of obtaining these ex-Mavs players.
Knicks vs. Nets: One team HAS to win, as basketball fans we all lose.
