  1. Howard Eisley, Shandon Anderson, Travis Knight, Luc Longley, Jerome James, Maurice Tylor, Clarence Weatherspoon….And we sign Earl Barron??? C’mon man!!!!

  2. The last time we signed a big man we had a debate about whether or not he was Fugazzi, and it worked like a charm. Does anyone have any Earl Barron fake toughguy stories? Can you tell I just love using the word Fugazzi?

  3. I don’t care who they got just as long as they second year is not guaranteed.

    3 garbage contracts plus Novak my get you two decent players or one good player on a bad team. Make the Nuggets transition complete and get Afflalo. lol

  4. Any chance we signed Q as a Jo-Jo English move? Be a real shame to see him and Pierce both get suspended. Yup, that would be a real shame. . .

  5. Well at least we started signing former knicks from this century. That said Oakley and Ewing would have been nice.

  6. er: the fact that some of those “experts” dont evenhave melo in their top 5 in MVP is disgraceful

    Why? There are more than four players who played better than he did this season.

    Also, I liked this: “Harden is the hirsute actualization of the precepts of NBA analytics.” Terribly overwritten sentence. Should have just read, “Harden is The Honorable Cock Jowles’s basketball wet dream.”

    so how was harden better?

  8. Does anyone know how they made roster space for him? And. An he actually play in the post season since he played for the Wizards this year?

  9. BUT WE ALREADY HAVE AN EARL!!! Oh god… this is bad… this is gonna be reaaaaaaaaalllll bad. Can you imagine a fight between these two over who gets the rights to be called the “One True Earl”? I can see it now… this has locker room cancer written all over it.

  10. er: so how was harden better?

    Yeah Harden was amazing, but I don’t know he was more valuable than Melo at all. Melo playing so much PF is such a huge lift for a team when it comes to spacing and creating a nightmare for a defense to matchup with … most teams had to choose whether to check him with a big guy that had to follow him 23 feet away from the bucket or a smaller man he could bully down low.

  11. It’s hipster elitism applied to basketball. You’re cool if you like Harden and hate Melo. It means you get it and the masses don’t. Leave Melo off your top 5 and you’re a discerning critic with higher standards than others.

    At least that’s what they think. Really it just makes them not credible.

  12. According to reports I heard today, Atlanta fears Brooklyn much more than Indiana so that’s why they’re tanking these last few games.

    Doesn’t really make any sense to me.

  13. Hey Im all for it, if the Hawks think they can beat the Pacers than by all means do it!!
