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.
