Fabulous!

Damn it, somebody has to orchestrate a trade between the Raptors and the Timberwolves so Rudy Gay and Kevin Love can be on the same team. Please, NBA, make the GAY-LOVE connection happen.

Aren't there always trade rumors surrounding the Raptors? And, don't they inevitably just go away within a weeks time because no matter how marquee the player in question is, the first sentence the opposing GM hears out of Bryan Colangelo's mouth is "well, we're willing to offer you one (1) Jose Calderon for (insert superstar/max player here)."

Memphis is actually trying to move Rudy though. I seriously doubt the Raptors have what the Grizzlies want though (a solid defensive 3 who can knock down shot, a big to come off the bench or a first round pick and a shooter to come off the bench.)

The irony though is that Calderon is actually worth trading for now, with that $10 mil number coming off the books after this year. It doesn't really do that much to improve the Grizz this year, and probably means they're destined for a 2nd round playoff loss, but might put them in a position to sign a marquee guy next off season.

Subpar shooting and meh defense on a max-ish contract? Colangelo's a farking idiot for wanting that.

He is practically impoossible to guard of the dribble in 2k11/12/13.

Outside of this year Rudy has been a fairly efficient 18 and 6 boards guy. He's still getting the numbers but less efficiently.

Memphis already did their salary cap dump though so no one's getting Rudy cheap. The front office here has made the comment that there would be no Rudy Gay trade unless it improves the Grizz for whatever that's worth.

Jim from Saint Paul: He is practically impoossible to guard of the dribble in 2k11/12/13.


Unfortunately when he dribbles in real life it usually ends up out of bounds off his foot or leg.

But seriously guys he's great. Make sure to post that on your favorite team's message board, so they'll know their fans are behind their three player trade for Gay.

Rudy Gay is the kind of player that stupid people think is a quality NBA small forward. Fortunately for Gay, Toronto's front office is filled with stupid people.

Darn you subby. You almost tricked me to participate in a sports thread.

..almost.

?

I understand that you need to take every opportunity possible to crap on the right or Republicans. (I don't get why, but whatever.) But why would a Christian news service care about using the word gay instead of homosexual? Are the Christian news services that you frequently listen to or watch concerned about the feelings of the gays? Are they being politically correct? If so, isn't that good? Or is homosexual a worse title, and you're saying that the Christian news service will make this guys name worse?

I don't understand the point of your post at all.

/'trolling' isn't an acceptable response, because that's different than just being stupid on the Internet.

No, there is a precedent of this happening. Link
