I spend one afternoon caroling in my neighborhood and lookit what happens: I return to a league that colluded to all swap jerseys and make me nuts. There’s no way, I’m going to be able to remember that a) Hedo Turkoglu is not on the Suns, b) Hedo Turkoglu was ever not on the Magic and c) Vince Carter isn’t on a pitiful D.C.Please, blog, may I have some more?

Stephen Curry‘s not a selfish basketball player. No one ever accused him of being one, but after Wednesday’s season opener in Golden State, it should have smacked everyone in the face like the hook of a Katy Perry song.

In 2006-07, Gilbert Arenas was a top 5 fantasy pick. In 2008-09, he was an injured mess hanging out on your waiver wire, hitting on your sister and asking to borrow your truck for a few days. In 2009-10, he was overrated and being picked in rounds 3-5 in drafts.Please, blog, may I have some more?
