No one likes the JJ choice

As I suspected, Professor Berri (aka the "Professor of Hoopology 101") of the WoW Journal jumped all over the Joe Johnson Eastern Conference All-Star selection this morning, as I did late last night (see post below). Its the greatest All-Star abomination in living memory (excluding Jamaal Magliore, of course) and must be considered an affront to true NBA fans everywhere.

If you click over to the WoW Journal, please note that my post was published first. In fact, mine was published 3 minutes after I saw the selections on TNT. I was that angry.

You can also note, though, that Berri's post is far more comprehensive and better thought out than mine. No matter, if there is any justice in the NBA blogosphere, those will only be the first of many negative editorials you will see regarding that particular choice.

Footnote ( 8:21 am): I don't see any Comments yet. Where's the outrage Antlerheads? Has all the losing drained your passion? (if so, that's understandable... we were beaten by 40+ twice in the last month)

And then there's Los Angeles trading for Gasol with Kwame Fricking Brown. If the Lakers can get a former all-star with one of the most useless players on their team then the Bucks HAVE to be able to pull something out of their asses.

But I guess, in keeping with the post, that former all-star doesn't always mean quality.

Don't worry Ty....people are still reading things on this blog. But there isn't much to get excited about.

Redd's going downhill so much this year with the team, I can't too worked up over Joe Johnson....last year was the season Redd should have made the team.

But I agree with anonymous...let's make a deal.....

The Gasol trade was about draft picks and freeing up cap space, not about Brown, whose contract is expiring. All of the Bucks' crappy players have long term deals - so who would want them?

I don't care too much about Joe Johnson making the All-Star team, because it wasn't like Redd got snubbed.

When will people learn that not all trades (in fact most are not) are talent for talent.

The Gasol deal looks horribly lopsided because it is. But in order to get involved the Bucks, or any other team, would need the ability to absorb that contract and give back cap relief. That's not easy with large contracts. They also mortgaged their future by giving two first rounders.

People need to stop using deals like these to point out how inept their front office is.

Wait, you mean that trades are hardly ever value for value? And expiring contracts have value aside from the player's talent? Oh my god, why didn't I ever notice that before! What an original thought that has never been expressed until now!

When did I ever say that I thought the Bucks could get a comparable player to Gasol with contracts like Simmons'? Or that the deal pointed out how inept the front office is? I'm a fan venting and hoping for a change. You anonymous people need to get off your high fucking horses.
