A lot of you have already heard the news about the Jason Kidd trade and a lot of you agree that Kidd is not worth that much. Mark Cuban and his front office of circus clowns and balloon animals obviously want to win it all right now, especially with teams like the Lakers and the Suns(?) bulking up on the front line by trading for a player clearly in the latter years of his career, and is only bound to get worse... not better. Makes perfect sense to obliterate your own front line to get help in the back court. Going backwards to go forward. You follow me? No? Fuck yourself.
A lot of hype has gone into this deal, but it probably won't go through because of the big mouth of one Jerry Stackhouse (one of the components of the trade). Apparently, Stackhouse made a prearranged agreement with the Nets and the Mavs so that Stack could buyout his contract with Jersey, wait out the 30 day wait period, and return to the Mavs. The only problem with all of that big worded talk, is that that kinda violates League rules. So the NBA is going to investigate these comments:
For the Mavericks, the trouble started when Stackhouse, 33, gave an interview to the Associated Press on Wednesday that suggested there was a plan for how his trade, buyout and eventual re-signing with Dallas would unfold.
Stackhouse said that he was only part of the deal “to make the numbers work.”
What’s more, he said, “I feel great. I get 30 days to rest then I’ll be right back. I ain’t going nowhere.”
I only wish the system of marriage was somewhat similar. Have my wife traded away for an upgrade for two first round picks (my two firstborn), only to have her come back after 30 days after she buys out her contract with her new husband. It's a suggestion I'm working out with the catholic church. They're being a little too picky, saying stuff about "not intended by matrimony" and "morals"... yeah whatever.
Hey, if all of this can happen in the League where "the amazing happens", the same should come where from the league where "He happens".
