I'm currently in VA on my way back to NY. I was down here for the Wizards-Pacers game last night. When I checked into the hotel, the guy at the desk sees me with my Net gear on and he says 'Now what? What are you guys going to do now? That HAD TO HURT!' I told him how I've been backing this team when this team was even worse than it was now. When we had vets that couldn't play. We've got young guys that need leadership. I told him that I'm not worrying about it because I trust Billy King and Proky isn't going to allow this team to suck going to Brooklyn. I saw the guy when I came back from the game and reminded him of how bad the Wizards are. Yi got in when they were down by 20 and Rashard Lewis isn't starting with his $17 million salary. I told him that I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and this time IT ISN'T the train coming in the opposite direction!
As I've said many times, we're the new joke now that Blake has saved the Clippers. Or at least we WERE the new joke. We've all gone back and forth on trade proposals and a lot of them have off the wall. Mine included. Some of you suggested this and we all laughed but did anyone REALLY think this was going to happen? ESPECIALLY with the Melo press conference going on later on today? This is the PERFECT WAY to stick it to the Knicks and Melo. Like I said, I like our front office. They don't take no for an answer. They don't believe that they can't improve team and we're stuck below medicocrity. If Donnie Walsh gets an extension (and yes he got the Knicks under the cap) , King gets one too because he moved Harris when everyone knew he wanted out and he turned it into GOLD!
If you're Billy King, where do you go from here? I'd still make a play for Jamal Crawford either before the deadline or at the end of the year. Morrow is a valuable asset that could be moved for some bench help (like a PF to replace Favors). I'd go back to Denver and see if we can make a play for Gallo and/or Chandler. We still have 3 more picks to play with. Would we win a championship? No but this team looks a HELL of a lot better than it did 24 hours ago. We're FINALLY getting our heads back above water guys!
