–Windhorst on three power forwards who the Cavs could be targeting at the trade deadline: Anthony Randolph, Troy Murphy, and Antawn Jamison. My ultra-ultra quick thoughts:
-As an uber-upside guy who hasn’t done much at the NBA level, I really don’t see how Randolph getting traded from a rebuilding team to a contender makes any sense for either side, but Randolph is too intriguing to pass up and the Warriors have surprised me before.
-Murphy fits on paper, but he couldn’t make it work as a stretch four under Don Nelson, of all people, and he’s sporting a -16.5 on the Pacers. I’m really not a fan.
-Jamison would be a home run, so long as MB finds a way to work his rotations to make sure Varejao still gets plenty of time along Jamison when the other team doesn’t have a strong post-up center on the floor. But will the Wizards be willing to trade him, let alone to Cleveland?
-Jamario Moon on his season with the Globetrotters.
-The Daily Thunder’s Royce Young, writing for TheLostOgle.com, puts together a list of the greatest Oklahoma City Sports YouTube videos ever. Before you look away, you’ve got Barry Sanders and Adrian Peterson in college on there, and Mike Gundy’s rant. A good way to waste 10-20 minutes.
By the way, I highly recommend the Lost Ogle in general. I had the following exchange on Saturday:
Friend: What are you reading?
Me: Oh, it’s like Gawker, but exclusively centered around Oklahoma City.
Friend: Krolik, there is something wrong with you.
-Leon Powe is getting closer to returning.
-I mentioned this in my recap Saturday, but it bears repeating: All five of the Bucks’ current starters were born in different continents.
-Mbah a Moute: Cameroon
-For fans of Delonte, scary news about Kirk Snyder’s personal demons.
-Alright folks, see you after the game tonight.
