Three Team Trade   Leave a comment

The deal:
Wizards get: Mike James, Javaris Crittenton
Grizzlies get: Future 1st round pick (originally Memphis’)
Hornets get: Antonio Daniels, 2nd round pick in 2015 or cash from Memphis

After the trade went down, the Wizards released ex-Jazzster Shorty.

The Wizards were in need of guard help, especially with Agent Zero out. So they settled on youngster Javaris Crittenton (traded for the 2nd time in his short career), a youngster who was caught in a log jam in Memphis… one that resulted in him played about 6 minutes a game in 7 games this season. He struggled to get the time behind Kyle Lowry & Mike Conley (on the other hand, I assume we can put an end to the Conley-to-Portland rumors). The Wizards also acquired Mike James from the Hornets. James was added in the off-season, but couldn’t beat out Devin Brown (another ex-Jazzster) for the back-up PG spot. So now the Wizards have 2 new PGs to man the position, especially with them trading their other PG. Pradamaster over at Bullets Forever likes the deal, but nails it on the head by mentioning that it totally depends on Crittenton’s development. And nails it on the head again by mentioning that the Daniels-for-James swap is a definite downgrade.

Jazz Crush Hornets Behind 3-Point Barrage & Deron   Leave a comment

Update: Originally posted on Biased Fan on 2/5/08. How can you not like it? A team record 14 made 3-pointers. Oh, and Deron showed up Chris Paul as well.

Holy sh**. Never thought I’d see that. Never ever. See, Jerry… it can be a fun game even if the team is launching up the long ball. The Jazz were only ahead by 1 after the first quarter, but rolled after that and ended up winning 110-88. And they did it without Andrei Kirilenko, who missed the game with flu-like symptoms. And despite the refs, who were craptacular… to be nice. It seemed like they had no idea what a foul was (this is going both ways, by the way). No idea what they were thinking. And that tech on Brewer… what the hell? He got pushed to floor on a hard foul… and got called for a tech for it? What the hell did he do while falling down to get T’d up? By the way, the ref that called that tech… he made horrible call after horrible call, no matter which team had the ball or what-not. Just frustrating to watch. Oh, also to Jerry… now do you see what CJ can do? His defense was amazing. He hit a couple of jumpers early to get the Jazz going.
