Finally!


Not sure if people have seen this yet, but apparently the mysterious Chinese guy now has his own NBA-sanctioned blog.
If you're guessing that it's markedly less entertaining than Agent Zero's inimitable stylings in this department, well, you're correct. A sample:

If I were the coach of the Cavaliers
"Well, I’ve never been a coach so I’m not an expert on this. But LeBron took his team to the NBA Finals for the first time, meaning they already play very well. And I think that although the Cavaliers really want to win this series, the Spurs are just too good for them to defeat."
Wow! I don't know what's funnier, the fact that from that statement could have easily been made by someone who has never picked up a basketball in his life or that it in fact sounds eerily similar to what was by all indications Mike Brown's actual strategy. Anyways, whatever, the blog sucks and probably won't get a whole hell of a lot better anytime soon. Still, sort of amusing.

I still think it's fairly unlikely Yi ends up on the C's, though it's starting to look more and more like Horford and BWright will both be off the board by the time the C's pick. There's actually a cool "Consensus Mock Draft" feature on NBA.com, which actually seems to raise some conflict-of-interest/tampering issues that we'll choose to ignore. Anyways, I think a trade is looking more and more likely. Rumor has it that Isaiah Thomas approached Danny with an offer of a gaggle of overrated Knicks (is there any other kind??) in exchange for the fifth pick and Danny basically told him to go fuck himself. Well played. I feel like with a combination of the pick, Ratliff's contract and Delonte or Gerald or something we might be able to grab an All-Star caliber sidekick for Pierce, and I think that's truly the best option at this point.

That's about all I've got for today. Enjoy the weekend. Also, if you want to check out some amazingly funny shit that's completely non-basketball-related, check out Michael Cera's online comedy show that's being experimentally produced by CBS. Michael Cera, as some may know, played George Michael on the seminal, beloved, impervious-to-hyperbole-yet-cancelled "Arrested Development." Anyway, his new show is hilarious... check it out.

Greg Oden's blog, on the other, is pretty good. I'm beginning to come around on McRoberts (see blog). I didn't like him when he was lottery bound, but now...kind of intriguing.

Tim,

Maybe when you start the Chinese version of the Shamrock Headband Yi Jianlian can give you withering critisms about your subpar writing skills in a second language. Your thoughts?
