Remember though that NBATV of all places reported this first. NBATV, the official station of the NBA! That is incredibly irresponsible considering the deal was not final.
^^^Cause he is pissed cause he is going to SactowN? (Please oh please!!)
Hopefully Bird showed Ron a briefcase full of money, slammed it shut, and then said you're this close to losing all of it. Do we understand?
You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....
Dan Patrick just said that Ron agreed to go to Sac, and the Maloofs are just waiting to talk to Ron and are trying to do that now!
Interesting. I hope it goes well.
That's nuts. They did nothing wrong. The only reason they "jumped the gun" is because Ron/his agent whined about it at the 11.59th hour and completely put the breaks on it. Any other player in this league is in Ron's place, and the trade is announced by late evening or early this morning already.
Another night, another backside-kicking. They just hit you from so many sides, now, in waves. It's like a cavalry, running down hill and trampling you underfoot. You have no tactical advantage, you're just swinging wildly in the mud, and the best strategy might be to play dead.
They are an absolute onslaught right now.
