Remember when...

Remember when Grizzlies GM Chris Wallace dealt Pau Gasol to the Lakers for some stuff that one time? Remember how Memphis said this trade was about saving the franchise money, but a lot of teams were still upset about it and the NBA said everything was on the up-and-up?

I do!

That's why I found it odd that the Grizzlies have now signed power forward Zach Randolph.

Wow, it must be nice for a franchise like Memphis to get such an experienced player, someone who is a great low-post scorer and rebounder. And at $16 million per year? What a steal!

Wait, what's that, you say? The Grizzlies had an All-Star low-post scorer and rebounder a couple of years ago? And he made $16 million per year, too? And this All-Star low-post scorer didn't have mental problems like Randolph does?

Well, now, that's just weird. I don't know quite what to make of it.

Oh goody. You know, I love that the Lakers got Gasol, but that was a very dumb move. The Grizz should have just kept Gasol, he is a better team player. Randolph is just a ball hog. I'm gonna have to agree with you on this, even as a Laker fan
