Before jetting out of the door this morning on the way to school I managed to catch the Tinsley to Denver trade scrolling across my screen. Larry Legend found a way to move Tinsley? The Nuggets dumped Camby but took on Tinsley? I was shocked and I shook my head. The West was about to get tougher. I had just hammered the Nuggets about not having a PG, and then they go get a PG. A hobbled one but…say what you want about Tinsley he’s an upgrade over both Chucky Atkins and Anthony Carter. Combined. Although I’m not too sure how much passing would be with him, AI and Melo. But I disgress.
Hours later I’m ready to blog about the Nuggets making a semi-smart move. I’m ready to scratch my head about a team going from cost-cutting to taking on Tinsley’s contract. I’m psyched to wonder if this Nuggets team can win enough games to bounce the Blazers out of the playoff race.
And then like this is August, I log on to web and it’s dead. RIP. Six feet under. Someone call the Undertaker to roll his eyes in the back of his head. So dead that Mr. Warkentien dropped a ”Did Dewey beat Truman?” joke…which thanks to Google and Wikipedia I can now chuckle at.
So who do you (if you’re out there) think will get dealt first: Tinsley or Marbury? I’d put my vote on Tinsley since he is obviously persona non grata in Indiana. The only problem is….he’s persona non grata across the league. And yes, I feel like persona non grata makes me feel smart. Marbury’s completely insane but the truth is he can still play and D’Antoni keeps forgetting he’s a terror in between sending Eddy Curry room service, counting his money, destroying Suns DVD’s and giving Danilo back massages.
