if you only knew who I was talking about," said Pritchard to Canzano after hanging up his phone. (Does one "hang up" a cell phone? "ring off"? turn off?. End call?) Anyway, to continue...
Maybe I'm reading more into that than is warranted, but it came across to me that KP was a little excited. Now maybe he was talking about someone and the other end of the line was "no no no", but let's say the conversation was productive and he really was excited.
WHO would get Pritchard exited?
Doubtful a draft pick because it would be hard to talk about a specific one unless you were talking to the GM with one of the top three picks.
A free agent? (Would he be talking with the FA's agent now?)
A non-FA player? Talking trade?
Many of you have already said who would excite you if we added him, but think outside your fan box. Ignoring logic and logistics, just knowing the player might be available - who would get KP excited?
The first name that came into my head was Chris Paul.
Now it's your turn.
EDIT: OK OK. I can see from the first few posted comments that what I intended did not come across well at all.
I am not asking if you believe what Canzano wrote is indeed the BFT. I am not asking if you think KP's quote was a cover-up, spin, or red herring. Just suspend all judgment and PRETEND that KP is actually excited about a player he just learned might be available. Don't use logic (would this player fit - if KP is excited it means he figures he can MAKE him fit - maybe by trading someone we love); don't use logistics - if KP wants someone he gets him.
And to repeat myself - not who would excite you - who would excite KP?
(Maybe this was a stupid question to ask of a mostly-guy fanbase?)
