Per team policy, financial terms of the deal were not released... Harrington, 6-4, 190 pounds, most recently played with the Grizzlies’ 2006 Summer Pro-Am League team where he averaged 10.0 points, 3.3 assists and 1.9 rebounds in seven games (2 starts).

I didn't care, but some people are always going to **** and moan. You could compliment people and some of them are going to complain.

I just kinda thought it would lighten the mood around here, everyone seems soo tense from the pending trade, i thought this would get a good laugh from most or a "haha got me" ...i guess i thought wrong. Again sorry if i pissed anyone off. that wasn't my intentions at all

It's not a big deal to me. I don't think it's funny, but it's not outrageous or anything like that.

That was funny... Is everyone really going to be this pissed if we don't sign him? I don't think he is going to change our team that much.

Oh man... that scared the **** out of me. Especially when I realized that the Grizzlies would be a perfect fit for Al.

Next time aero, you should mark it with an alert and put big exclamation points after the title!!!!!!!!!

I don't understand why people were upset w/ this?? No harm no foul. I chuckled a little, after my sigh of relief.

I wouldn't worry about it. The year after the DD_JO trade I posted a fake announcement of a trade near the trade deadline on RATS - don't remember the details but I know Dale to the Pacers and a trade exception to Portland were involved - plus quotes from Bob Whitsett. This was when Dale was moaning about how much he'd loved being in Indy and there was a lot of speculation about him coming back.

I don't think Peck's spoken to me since ... Compared to that, this is nothing.

It would be a relief to me if they didn't sign Al, for the simple fact that he is not going to make us that much better, and we already have enough forwards. On another not it's funny to see the reaction of people that want al back in the worst way.

Exactly my thoughts. It did scare me at first but once I read it I laughed.
