Just in case you didn’t get the memo.
Some of you might have seen this last night when it aired, and some of you may have not. Here it is now for all the doubters and hate pie munchers!

Nice… hit the snooze button five times, get up six!
That sounded like a typical day around this place.
they need to zoom.. whos that on the other side of the bed.. Bennett Salvatore!
hahaha nice SMK.
that was a little wack. the should have shown him getting carried off the court or something. and who sets their alarm for 6:45?
Did people REALLY say that he was a “waste of a pick” back in ’03? I don’t remember that.
MARTY BURNS, SI: “Maybe they could have taken a chance on Kaman or Ford, or traded down for a veteran, but it’s hard to argue with the selection of Wade. He and Beasley are the kind of athletes the Heat have lacked in recent years. Pat Riley admitted before the draft that the No. 5 pick could dictate the future of the franchise. Clearly he’s going for it now.” (Weird—they took Jerome Beasley 33rd overall in ’03.)
CHAD FORD, ESPN: “It’s tough to criticize Pat Riley for passing on Lampe when 24 other teams did the same thing. Wade was the most ready to contribute now, and that was important to Riley. He should be able to step in right away and play together with Eddie Jones. The only knock on the pick is that Wade won’t give them much-needed perimeter shooting. But his athleticism, defense and maturity make up for that. Beasley is a great second-round pick. He’ll have to work harder than he’s ever worked to play with Riley, but that effort could turn him into the steal of the second round.” (Ford was 100 percent correct that Maciej Lampe should have gone in the lottery. I’m glad he’s still employed as an analyst.)
Oh, and just because I love Chad Ford so much:
Round 1: Darko Milicic, F, Serbia-Montenegro (No. 2)
Round 1: Carlos Delfino, G, Italy (No. 25)
Round 2: Andres Gliniadakis, C, Greece (No. 58)
How many teams with the best record in their conference end up with the best big man in the draft and a draft-night steal in Carlos Delfino? By now, you know about Darko, but Delfino will also be important down the road. He’s tough, a strong shooter and plays aggressive defense. He reminds me a lot of Michael Finley. He could play an immediate role on the Pistons if he stays here next year. Gliniadakis was a nice pickup at the end of the draft. He’s a 7-footer who can actually play. The Pistons will leave him in Greece for a few years and bring him over when he’s ready.
(He gave the Cavs and the Nuggets A-minuses, same as the, uh, Knicks, who took Michael Sweetney, Maciej Lampe and Slavko Vranes, who last I checked, are all out of the League)
Russ will throw you under the buss…
only because you deserve it though.
Nice comfy chair in the last shot …. mmmm lumbar support
Ryne, you should have closed commenting after SMK and Dallas killed it.
To add the last radio host, he’s also got the ugliest signature shoes ever made.
