In light of yesterday's trade by the Orlando Magic, I should definitely be posting something of significance today. Though, I must admit that I'm not quite sure which I should mention first, the acquisition of Chad Ford's love monkey, Darko Milicic, or the fact that the Orlando Magic now boast a roster that includes FIVE point guards. Which, by the way, now allows the Magic to field the all 6'3" and under starting five that I called for in this blog so many months ago. If you remember, that request came as a direct result of the Magic's acquisitions of Keyon Dooling and Travis Diener within weeks of one another. Of course for the Magic to successfully field the smallest starting lineup in NBA history, Jameer Nelson would have to be able to actually play. This is currently an impossibility due to the mis-diagnosis of Nelson's torn ligament in his foot (originally diagnosed as a sprain) and the mind numbingly high level of incompetence that seemingly permeates the entire Orlando Magic organization. I should talk about all of this, and I will...eventually. I'm going to hold off on any further analysis or comment regarding the current direction of the Magic franchise until tomorrow when (hopefully) the organization's plans for Steve Francis have become clearer.
Besides my hope for additional player movement within the next 24 hours by the two headed General Managerial monster that is Dave Twardzik and Otis Smith, my reticence to discuss the Magic's most recent stab at front office competency is also due to my impending departure from work in less than an hour and a half. Though I wasn't lying to my co-workers when I told them I had an "appointment" at 3 pm, I'd be more than a little surprised if any of them realized that my appointment was, in fact, a tattoo appointment. I'm still not sure why, but evidently leaving work to sit in a tattoo parlor for three plus hours isn't viewed in the same light as going to have your prostate examined by Dr. Patel.
I'll be back at work tomorrow and should have something Magic/Darko related up by the early afternoon, provided that my entire right leg doesn't become infected overnight.
Finally, you're kidding yourself if you don't think that I've already purchased one these.
