Free Agency Day 1, AKA, The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test for GMs

     Well, this might be Lebron's Free Agency party, but this first day has overshadowed even the self-anointed king.
I mean, Drew Gooden just got a 5-year deal for the FULL mid-level exception. 32-34 million. For five years.

 

     For Drew Gooden.

 

     Just let that sink into your noggin for a minute. And, in my opinion it wasn't even the worst deal of the day.

     No no, that 'honor' belongs to the Atlanta Hawks, and their GM... ah... hold on, let me check Google... Rick Sund. I hope I pronounced that right. In my mind there is zero chance that Johnson and Roy are at the same level. Don't believe me? Take a look at the Field Goal percentage. Notice a slight difference there? Now check out the Free Throws per game stat. Starting to see my point? Plus he's 29. Yeah.

 

    But wait! There's more!

 

     As always the man who is God's gift to basketball bloggers everywhere, David Kahn couldn't let the festivities pass him by without throwing his sombrero into the Ring of Idiots. Enter Darko Millicic. I'm not a basher of Darko, but FIVE YEARS of GUARANTEED MONEY? Are you kidding me? It's all I can do not to give into the cliche and post a picture of Cap'n Kirk. Not content with his scoop of ice stupid, he also reportedly offered a major contract to Rudy Gay, but was turned down, thereby denying him Gay/Love/Sessions. (Truthfully I think that would have been a better thing to try in college, but apparently Kanh was curious)

 

     Oh, speaking of Rudy Gay, apparently he's worth the max, too. This one has me just shaking my head, but at least he'll occasionally play some defense.

 

Ok, fine. Here's Captain Kirk.
