Goodbye Rashard, Hello Ernie

Written By Chris C-Ford ---- Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Well, Ernie Grunfeld had a heck of a run as an awful GM.  But I don't know what hit him in the head towards the end of the season that has caused him to start making decent basketball moves.  (Notice I said "decent" and not "tough" or "good")  It was announced that the Wizards traded Rashard Lewis to the Hornets for Emeka Okafor & Trevor Ariza.

Now don't get me wrong, this isn't the greatest move in the history of sports.  But it does get a guy who is WAY past his prime in Rashard Lewis out of town.  And most importantly, it sets up the move to amnesty Andray Blatche (Don't f**k around Ted) and get him far away from DC.  Win-Win!  Oh I guess they got some players too.

All that for a guy I wanted the team to just amnesty or cut outright!  I honestly have no idea who in their right mind would want Rashard Lewis.

Ernie started the housework by clearing out Nick Young & JaVale McGee towards the end of last season.  He even got a decent piece in Nene in the deal.  Although if he got a bag of peanuts for those 2 guys I'd still love the trade.  (But only if they were Planters sillies)  Rashard was next, and all that remains is 7 Day Dray...

So today you can call me Art Vandalay.  I am going to quit the importing and focus on the exporting.  Tommorow I'll get the line right and talk about Okafor & Ariza.
