    Default Love this take on the Pacer's draft

    If only for the Tinsley comment*. From Yahoo Sports:



    Indiana Pacers
    With Marcus Williams free-falling and Jamaal Tinsley somewhere treating his sore wrist with a room-temperature bag of frozen peas, the Pacers instead went for underachieving Memphis wing Shawne Williams. A John Calipari one-year special playing for Rick Carlisle? This can't miss!









    *Disclaimer, I do not necessarily subscribe to the idea that Tinsley is worthless, nor that he is using a luke-warm bag of peas for his injuries, but it's funny nonetheless.

    Underachieving player?

    Yahoo totally missed the boat.

    Yeah, you know, it's funny how the comments by the talking heads during the draft seem to take on a life of their own. The snowball effect, fueled by a lack of knowledge (in this case, how many of these writers watched enough Shawne to make that kind of judgement?) just rolls through the media without a second thought.

    The draft day gospel.

    Kelly Dwyer is almost as funny as Bill Simmons.

    His mock presidential debate between Reggie Miller and Isiah Thomas to preview the 2000 season back on NBATalk.com was one of the funniest sports articles of all time.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you
