It's a diary, sort of.

Semi-live NBA draft diary

7:51pm - Don't like OJ in Minny but hey, he was the best player in the draft. At least he can't get in trouble. So cal >>>>>>>>>>>>> Minny. Rocking some butt ugly shoes. And what's with the beard.

7:54 - Sonics take Westbrook. Wow. I thought the Knicks were reaching at #6. Donnie Walsh definetely just tossed a legal pad across the room. Jesus.

7:56 - I like Bilas. Good analyst. Van Gundy still needs sleep.

7:57 - The SAS interviews along with this wench are going to get funnier as the night go on. Stu Scott trying to rile the crowd up. Asshole.

7:58 - I hope the Italian kid understands they are going to boo him lustily. Mostly because they haven't seen him play. And because they are probably sauced. From what I hear he would have ripped up college.

8:00 - Pineapple Express? I don't know what to make of it.

8:01 : Gotta go Love hear if your Memphis no?

8:02 : Yup. I'm good.

8:03 : Ok. I'm hyperventilating. I don't know what the Knicks are doing. Are they going
PG in Augustine? Or Bayless? Are they going Euro in Danilo? Gordon? They might go Gordon. Jesus that kid is a mess. Talented but a mess. Starbury will turn him into a jewel thief for sure. They ain't taking the retard from WVU. Or one of the Lopez dunk dummies. At least I hope not. Fuck. I'm sweating. I like Bayless. And I've watched enough Youtube clips on the Italian to not be totally pissed if they take him. Get this bitch out of here already! Fuck. Who is this cunt? She has fat arms. Fuck, here we go...............................oh jesus, oh jesus, oh jesus....please....

8:07 : Ok. Ok. Breathe. I saw this coming. We all did. Don't laugh at me. Don't you dare laugh at me! Pull up his clips. This is not Frederic Weis part deux. Stop it. Personally I wanted Bayless. At lease Steph don't speak Italian. I need a break.

8:13 : Gordon has a prom suit on. How cute. His screwed in Clipperland.

8:18 : The Gund said Knicls don't need PG help. Said Starbury, if he played to his potential, is good enough. Um yeah. Gund, that's what we've been saying. You need more than talent to play in the NBA Gund. The Gunder. Gunderoni.

8:20 : Gotta track the draft online for a little while. The kid wants to watch The Backyardigans.
Fuck off. At least I'm not in a movie theater watching Kung Fu Panda.

8:20 : Retard from WVU went to the Bucks. Kid can score. I have nothing else to add.

8:21 : Bobcats up. No clue on where they are going with this pick. No idea who they need. Forgot they were even in the league.

8:25 : They went Augustine. He must be thrilled.

8:29 : Nets should go B. Rush. Replace some perimeter scoring RJ provided.

8:32 : D'oh. A Lopez? Weird. I don't care but that wasn't a bright pick.

8:33 : Pacers got the PG situation under control now. I'd say a power forward now. Maybe the LSU kid or the Kansas guy Arthur. Rush would fit there too.

8:36 : They took Bayless. Best available approach? Ok. Now they have 4 PG's. Interesting. A trade seems imminent. Goodbey Tinsley. You wield a powerful broom stick.

8:38 : Sacratomatoe up. I hope they don't think Udrich can run that team. They should take Chalmers. Let's see. Unrelated Brad Miller is pulling in 10.5MM this season. Chew on that.

10:25 : I missed some picks. Kid was a bastard to get down for the night. A real terror.

While I was gone trades happen. Discuss in the comments.

Closing thoughts:

Jason Thompson was surprise. Joey Dorsey was not a first round pick. I thought he would go late twenties. Hibbert to Totonto is interesting.

Lopez in Phoenix makes some sense.

Sonics got D.J White from the stons' for some 2nd rounders. Veteran move there by DOOOOOOMars.

Chalmers dropped too. Weird

What's the Gunderoni's wingspan? 2 feet?

I'm done. More thoughts tomorrow.

Save the Sonics.

(Yep, this comment is the equivalent of one of Freak's posts when he doesn't feel like trying but just wants to get something out there...)

blue said...

lots of trades, good AD action last night.


the quotes by the guy the Nicks picked were hilarity

El Padrino said...

It's ok beth, we take what we can get

El Padrino said...

i shoulda AD'd, I was writing the post at the same time

tem said...

i was going to read AD, but was too lazy.

tem said...

i did at one point glance at it and see that freak hoped IND traded for DJ White.

I think they did.

tem said...

nope he went to SEA. i'm dumb.

blue said...

nah, DJ white got send to OKC

blue said...

a couple quotes by Gallinari in the ESPN chat last night:

"You move from the most beautiful city in Italy and come to New York, the best city in the US&A. You go from the best to the best"

"Gary (Phoenix): Gallinari, how will you live without delicious Italian dishes?

Danilo Gallinari: (9:48 PM ET ) I think there are a few restaurants in New York. I think I will find those."

"Danilo Gallinari: (9:50 PM ET ) Let's go Knicks! Let's go together. Let's go Italy!"


He was hilarity

tem said...

go where together?

El Padrino said...

I missed that.

blue said...

for all intensive purposes, he was excited which is good.

blue said...

fucking rainouts

blue said...

i was 3/4 with 2 runs and 2RBIs and the fucking game gets rained out and wipes all that out

tem said...

i did not realized you played.

blue said...

i did, and I was playing well

tem said...

i don't understand the bucks right now.

how many small forwards do they want?

i guess retard is going to back up RJ? and the other pick backs up the retard?

tem said...

sounds like you were playing well.

maybe you can duplicate it next week.

my vball team beat the best team last week so we had a let down this week against a team we should have beat. my team thinks we are much better than we really are. they go through the motions too often. i blame the coach.

blue said...

the bucks are going to start a full team of SF, even the bald guy is really a small forward

blue said...

i think they played up to their potential the previous week because they didn't want you to lose to efmtem...they knew the shame you would endure

tem said...

yeah i motivated them last week.

this week i didn't care. i spent more time looking at the girls who were dumb enough to wear white t-shirts when it was raining a little bit.

tem said...

that memphis trade looks horrid.


love and miller for mayo and shit?

blue said...

memphis is dumb

blue said...

did you take any pictures tem?

H said...

I'm so ready for the weekend

tem said...

i took one picture, but i doubt it came out well.

Tyler said...

Kung Fu Panda was surprisingly entertaining.

Tyler said...

And there were way too many trades last night.

blue said...

hahaha

the main picture on the sportspage of the local paper is Robin Lopez wearing his hat with his goofy hair.

Tyler said...

I don't know what to make of that Twolves/Grizz trade.

blue said...

the nuggets traded for some Weems guy who is a good dunker...that's what they need, more good dunkers

El Padrino said...

the trade is obviously a coup for McHale, well done

blue said...

Robin Lopez writes comic books...wrap your head around that zeke...Shaqman (a comic book character) and Robin

Tyler said...

Ah, I get it now. They finally get rid of Cardinal and Toine has a team option for next year. He won't get optioned. They'd have to pay him $20 mill over the next two years.

Basically, a giant salary dump to get Mayo. But they get stuck with Jaric. Executive of the Year (s).

blue said...

wow, the t-wolves shed the marko jaric contract in that trade?

they had to take back the awful Brian Cardinal contract, but Minnesota got 3 white guys

blue said...

typically the team getting the most white guys in a trade loses

Tyler said...

"but Minnesota got 3 white guys"

I heard season ticket sales in Sota spiked 30% this morning.

El Padrino said...

Memphis to live has to better than Minny.

No?

Keith S said...

"Kung Fu Panda was surprisingly entertaining."

Stop it

blue said...

"Memphis to live has to better than Minny."

Minny always ranks really high on the "best places to live" rankings....it's too fucking cold there.

Tyler said...

Portland made five trades last night.

Tyler said...

Aight, I gotta get ready to go to a press check in Pacoima. Good times.

blue said...

yeah, portland somehow got involved in the nuggets trade, and acquired like 3 more picks in future years

blue said...

tyler is speaking spanish again

tem said...

portland will have the 1-30 picks in the 2010 draft.

blue said...

wall

blue said...

el tardo's draft diary was awful

blue said...

although the story about J-bug hitting on Wendy Nix and the mutombo finger wag, was funny

tem said...

isn't wendy nix like 300lbs?

tem said...

the wendi nix stuff from simmons already hit wiki.

blue said...

she's married to the VP of player personnel for the Red Sawks, how does J-bug not know this

tem said...

maybe that was after j-bug hit on her.

tem said...

friday is wallday.

JFreak said...

"Hibbert to Totonto is interesting."

That pick is part of the JO/TJ Ford trade.

Hibbert will go to Indiana.

tem said...

Denver had 0 picks 2 years in a row now??

El Padrino said...

"That pick is part of the JO/TJ Ford trade.

Hibbert will go to Indiana."

yes.

tem said...

too many trades to keep track of. and too many trades that can't be finalized until july so they don't count yet.

tem said...

El Tardo should be super happy that the Celtics ended up with Bill Walker.

blue said...

trades are gay

blue said...

"Denver had 0 picks 2 years in a row now??"

yep, but they turned this year's 2nd rounder into JR Smith, or maybe that was last years 2nd round pick.

and then they traded away next year's 2nd round pick already

El Padrino said...

tyler has six wins already

we need to keep our era low so i aint starting giese and might not start pedro

zeke any thoughts on this
the quest for the championship continues

blue said...

MLB informed Clint Hurdle that he cannot have Willie Randolph as one of his coaches for the ASG...there goes the "generic MLB jersey" idea.

El Padrino said...

yeah pinella took his spot

El Padrino said...

wasnt the suns first pick in the first round since like 97

JFreak said...

Tennis is dumb.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"i don't understand the bucks right now.

how many small forwards do they want?

i guess retard is going to back up RJ? and the other pick backs up the retard?"

The Bucks'll move either Redd or Mo Williams. How many times to I need to say this?

El Padrino said...

this draft makes my head hurt

blue said...

if the bucks move Redd or Mo Williams, is the retard goign to play PG or SG?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"if the bucks move Redd or Mo Williams, is the retard goign to play PG or SG?"


I don't need this shit right now.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Use some sense

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I'm gonna read El Tardo

blue said...

"Use some sense"

you're the moron insisting that they're going to trade their PG and SG, when they have 9 SF's...i bet they trade SF meiz

blue said...

sorry, moron was uncalled for

i apologize deke

Keith S said...

On this day in 1988...

Mike Tyson remained the undisputed heavyweight champion when he knocked out Michael Spinks at 1:31 of the opening round - the fourth fastes knockout in heavyweight history

The Douche formerly known as MVN said...

At least Danilo can get good italian food in NYC. Had he ended up in Memphis or Indy he would be stuck with Olive Garden garbage.

My kid was rocking the Backyardigans when i left the hizzy this AM.

Keith S said...

Whoa

El Padrino said...

outstanding.

El Padrino said...

This is true. NYC has the best Italian food. (outside of italy of course)

El Padrino said...

she loves the backyardigans

The Douche formerly known as MVN said...

The Legend of the Volcano Sisters...not one of their finer episodes.

El Padrino said...

Hate that episode.

Surf's Up, Secret Agent and Mystery Manor are always in heavy rotation.

The Douche formerly known as MVN said...

So what exactly is Uniqua? Salamander?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"you're the moron insisting that they're going to trade their PG and SG, when they have 9 SF's...i bet they trade SF meiz"


Mo & Redd don't like each other. They need a real PG & a PF. Now that RJ's here, Redd can finally be a 2nd banana. Mo & a SF for a PG makes sense.

The Douche formerly known as MVN said...

Surf's up...I've got all the rad moves fo sho'

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Marty V? Out fucking standing.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Why is MVN a douche?

blue said...

he lives


he should check out the work on LOM as he's a music aficianado

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

El Tardo draft diary has actually made laugh 3 times so far.

The Douche formerly known as MVN said...

I've been in a cyber coma. Glad I can come back and attempt a Backyardigans themed Z. My game is weak.

JFreak said...

MVN, iam is moving out your way.

Roll out the welcome wagon.

El Padrino said...

Must be a salamander. A hybrid ant-eater maybe.

The Douche formerly known as MVN said...

Wagon is rolling Freak - he's just in time. Yeungling is now available. Bottles since around Jan and draft since around march.

The Douche formerly known as MVN said...

Nice fishing pics on the main page. Did anyone make the joke about being a Master Baiter?

El Padrino said...

funniest thing i've seen in years

The Douche formerly known as MVN said...

That joke needs to be made on every fishins excursion

Keith S said...

Probably TMBT

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

El Tardo is up to 5 laughs now.

The Douche formerly known as MVN said...

I need that "New Jersey, we don't pump our gas we pump our fists" shirt.

The Douche formerly known as MVN said...

Anyone else own a white belt besides me?

Keith S said...

I do

Keith S said...

It goes with the 70s outfit.

The Douche formerly known as MVN said...

not in the martial arts vein but in the regular belt context

El Padrino said...

I own a white cloth belt.

NS

(hanging head)

El Padrino said...

Like this one

Keith S said...

I also have some white patent leather shoes. Clark Griswold style.

The Douche formerly known as MVN said...

unless there is a third white belt owner here I think that makes us douches Keith. I'm judging this from the guido dance.

El Padrino said...

speaking of belts i really hate it when people dont wear one too work

so sloppy and unprofessional

Keith S said...

I can live with that

Keith S said...

"speaking of belts i really hate it when people dont wear one too work

so sloppy and unprofessional"


Even with sweatpants?

(s)

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

El Tardo officially clocked in at 7.5 laughs from me.

Keith S said...

mize is easily entertained

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"Anyone else own a white belt besides me?"


Absolutely not.

The Douche formerly known as MVN said...

El P that doubles as a bottle opener so it's more function than fashion.

Mine only gets rocked with the white shell toes.

I think if 3 or more in the crew have a white belt we are safe from being the dance guy. but maybe I'm in denial.

JFreak said...

good commerical by the discovery channel

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"I also have some white patent leather shoes. Clark Griswold style."

You do not. I won't believe that.

El Padrino said...

and that bottle opener is very handy

El Padrino said...

white shoes would be overboard

Keith S said...

"You do not. I won't believe that."

Yeah I do. The only reason I got them and the white belt is because when we go to Vegas for bachelor parties, one of the nights everyone puts on the 70s threads. That's the only time I've ever worn them.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

God mother fucking dammit we have the shittiest computers here. Fucking pieces of shit.

And on top of that, the cuntrag that I fucking hate is in here. FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

blue said...

hey meiz...it's friday

Keith S said...

So Mequon has the worse computers?

blue said...

it's not shitty computers...it's shitty computers with UPS.

Keith S said...

Has anyone with downs ever worked at ups?

Keith S said...

OMJ. Sorry

El Padrino said...

more facsiantion

njguido.com is listed as an attack site on Firefox. I won't be visiting.

memoirs of an aspiring guido

The Douche formerly known as MVN said...

After every draft I think of this Cake song and how applicable it is to the boo's and baby mama's of those drafted


She doesn't care whether or not he's an island
She doesn't care just as long as his ship's coming in
She doesn't care whether or not he's an island
They laugh, they make money
He's got a gold watch
She's got a silk dress and healthy breasts
that bounce on his Italian leather sofa.

El Padrino said...

makes perfect sense

El Padrino said...

were there any seniors taken in the draft other than Hibbert?

tem said...

"The Bucks'll move either Redd or Mo Williams. How many times to I need to say this?"

how does this help the fact that they have RJ, retard, and other guy at SF. All acquired within the last 48hrs?

JFreak said...

"were there any seniors taken in the draft other than Hibbert?"

yes.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"and other guy at SF"

Who?

tem said...

"were there any seniors taken in the draft other than Hibbert?"

5 seniors total in round 1.

tem said...

"and other guy at SF who?"

Luc Richard Mbah a Moute

El Padrino said...

wendy's is giving out free burgers
promotion for thier grand opening

El Padrino said...

stop it tem, you know i dont speak Swahili

blue said...

Courtney Lee was a senior

tem said...

"stop it tem, you know i dont speak Swahili"

that's why i called him "the other guy" at first.

blue said...

floyd landis is still arguing about using PEDs?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"Luc Richard Mbah a Moute"

He's a garbage time guy. Be serious here.

The Douche formerly known as MVN said...

Floyd Landis needs to open up a comic book shop end up on "To catch a predator"

El Padrino said...

yeah, creepy guy

The Douche formerly known as MVN said...

If faced with a situation to leave my kid with Mike Tyson or Landis for 10 minutes I'm choosing Tyson.

JFreak said...

"If faced with a situation to leave my kid with Mike Tyson or Landis for 10 minutes I'm choosing Tyson."

Tyson eats babies.

blue said...

exactly

The Douche formerly known as MVN said...

"Tyson eats babies"

I knew there was a chance of this going in and it still seemed like the better option.

JFreak said...

Darrell Arthur was traded like 8 times last night.

blue said...

OJ Mayo was NOT excited to go to Minneapolis...i'm guessing he's not much happier in Memphis...he wanted to play in Miami

The Douche formerly known as MVN said...

does he get to keep each hat?

tem said...

"He's a garbage time guy. Be serious here."

he is still another small forward.

like i said, i don't get what the bucks are doing and trading redd or mo doesn't seem to really help their problem.

they have too many SFs and they are all SFs that they just acquired. are they going to trade RJ or retard right after acquiring them? maybe, but until that happens i don't get it.

blue said...

can't trade RJ for 120 days or something...

tem said...

more to my point...


just don't get it.


not that i need to. bucks don't need to run things through me.

blue said...

maybe it's 90 days

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"they have too many SFs and they are all SFs that they just acquired. are they going to trade RJ or retard right after acquiring them? maybe, but until that happens i don't get it."



AAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH

Why do you refuse to understand how this works?????????????????

blue said...

they might do better if they did runt things by tem

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Tem, you are the bane of my existence right now.

blue said...

i like how of all the draft analysts, only meiz sees the retard and the african as good picks

tem said...

i don't understand it because you aren't explaining it well.

all you say is that they are going to trade Mo or Redd.

that still leaves their #8 pick buried on the bench.

El Padrino said...

worst song ever

blue said...

muskrat love is CoLoV

The Douche formerly known as MVN said...

The Dan Band version is much better

Keith S said...

"AAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH

Why do you refuse to understand how this works?????????????????"


TWGKS

Keith S said...

Dan Band is great

Keith S said...

mize is not a very good explainer.

Keith S said...

But it's all his customers' faults

tem said...

GK could probably explain it.

tem said...

Dan Band is playing at Keith's wedding.

Keith S said...

If mize explains UPS boxes like he explains nba rosters, I totally understand why his customers don't get it.

Keith S said...

"Dan Band is playing at Keith's wedding."

I should look into that. I wonder how much they would cost.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Time for a tasty P'zone

Keith S said...

I can hear you getting fatter

blue said...

Dan Band = A+

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"that still leaves their #8 pick buried on the bench."

He's not likely to start. He'll be the 6,7, or 8th man.

Keith S said...

"He's not likely to start. He'll be the 6,7, or 8th man."

Isn't that what tem said?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"i like how of all the draft analysts, only meiz sees the retard and the african as good picks"

Huh? What African?

Keith S said...

Or does "buried" mean 9th guy?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Redd won't likely be traded now with RJ. I misspoke on Redd.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

If the Bucks move Desmond Mason or Charlie V, Alexander moves up the depth chart

blue said...

"Huh? What African?"

Luc Richard M'bah Mouté

JFreak said...

"Huh? What African?"

this has been asked and answered.

like 3 times.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Tem is over-concerned with Alexander. Meiz is not.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Oh. I don't give a shit about Luc Richard.

blue said...

meiz, the point was they had a shitty draft

Keith S said...

mize has the attention span of a 4 year old.

El Padrino said...

"I should look into that. I wonder how much they would cost."

don't do it

bands usually jump into pools after performing and they also prefer liquor over beer

JFreak said...

you know, joe alexander might not be the retard in this situation.

tem said...

tem doesn't get why you take a guy at #8 to be your 8th man.

you had plenty of options for people who would be a starter.

and the pick a guy who is going to be behind RJ, a player who plays tons of minutes. maybe they expect RJ to get hurt.

just
don't
get
it

blue said...

their picks made no sense given their current assets

tem said...

"you know, joe alexander might not be the retard in this situation."

let's not get too hasty here.

some situations have multiple retards.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Here. What the Bucks should look like, if mgmt isn't retarded:

Mystery PG
Redd
RJ
Charlie V
Mystery C/PF
Bogut

Joe Alexander/Charlie Bell
Ramon Sessions
And then slop after that.

Keith S said...

"bands usually jump into pools after performing and they also prefer liquor over beer"

Good point. They'll probably have fireworks, too.

The Douche formerly known as MVN said...

P'zone - I see Nate Robinson trying to take Danilo out for a couple of these.

Keith S said...

Why couldn't Sessions be the starter and Bell back him up?
