Wednesday December 24 2008 – 1:53pm Eastern
I’m sure many of you are spending the day with family and friends and hopefully you’re like me – taking a break from the NBA and the Raptors for at least ONE day!
I’ll be back at it tomorrow – on Xmas Day – with a quick blog from Sacramento.
The Raps will practice in Sac-town and 4:00pm (Pacific) tomorrow and then gather for a festive team dinner. Then it’s back to work on the 26th for their game against the Kings.
Before I go …
While EVERYONE seems to be clamouring for ‘trade talk’ these days, let me remind you I have no interest in reading about fantasy trades or wild ideas you’ve created. Let’s just wait to see what Bryan Colangelo may or may not do. Or, at the very least, let’s wait to see some CREDIBLE sources/stories before we start getting too excited.
For example, that Eddy Curry-to-Toronto ‘rumor’ is bogus. It’s simply not going to happen. Enough said.
One thing that did get me wondering today though …
With Nenad Krstic about to join the OKC Thunder and talk that Jannero Pargo is dying to get out of Russia, I wonder if we might hear some rumblings of Carlos Delfino looking to do the same? The financial situation in Russia is BRUTAL — some teams apparently aren’t even making payroll. It might be something worth keeping an eye on. Who knows.
Anyway, Merry Christmas to those of you that celebrate … Happy Holidays to everyone else.
