We’re dry heaving here. We’re down to digging holes and lopping off the tops of cacti.
Mary Schmitt Boyer of the Cleveland Plain Dealer has reported Tristan Thompson’s former high school coach referring to the 4th picks as the steal of the draft. http://www.cleveland.com/cavs/index.ssf/2011/07/cleveland_cavaliers_selection.html
Quick Analysis: I’m sorry, have I completely misinterpreted the meaning of ‘steal’ in the draft? Wasn’t this guy projected as late lottery, and taken at 4? 4! Even Kyrie Irving looked stunned. Memo to former high school coach: Michael Jordan was a steal at 3. Rajon Rondo was a steal in the late first round. The Cavs REACHED for Thompson, not stole.
This lockout is straight destitute. It’s like we’re all out in the desert eating toothpaste because it’s the only thing we have left to possibly ingest before we start cannibalizing each other. Lockout news. Squeeze it straight out of the bottom of the tube.
