Crushed Optimists

We are twin brothers who grew up in Central Washington. This blog is devoted to the life of Seattle sports fans, as well as various other topics that we will espouse for your enjoyment. We could be called another OFFICIAL SEATTLE SEAHAWKS site, but we'll take our uneducated crack at the Mariners, Sonics, and Huskies as well. A Seattle Sports Blog? Must be the land... of crushed optimism!

Sonics News

As the Sonics continue to stand pat on all that cap money (will you just SIGN SOME PEOPLE PLEASE!!!) other news is continuing to happen...

The Lakers trade their only legitimate point guard (Chucky Atkins) to the Wizards for the most underacheiving first round pick of the last five years, Kwame Brown. This probably is good news for Will Conroy, but who exactly is going to run the triangle? Anyone who picks the Lakers to make the playoffs next year is sick in the head.

The Sonics are going to decide shortly if Bob Weiss is their next coach. I'm surprisingly apathetic about this decision. If it happens, okay. If it doesn't happen, whatever. I'd rather the team sign some freaking free agents instead.

Speaking of free agent defections, the New York Knicks became the next idiotic team to take a chance on Jerome James, 5 years at 30 million. This is fantastic news for us and terrible news for Knicks' fans. I feel terrible that they have to put up with his crap for that long. Thankfully we don't have to. Amazing how four good games against a crappy defensive team (Sacramento) can make someone worth that type of money. So now a man who says he's had problems with partying is in New York. Yeah, that's not going to be an issue.

And the Jerome James era ended in Seattle. Seattle fans cheered, while alcohol distributors booed, as we have less opportunity to run to the bottle after another performance by the big man.

Is there a worse GM than Mr. Thomas in New York? Anyone?
