The Kings are apparently on the verge of getting free of the Shareef Abdur-Rahim contract, now and forever. They can axe Mikki Moore's unguaranteed $6 million or so for next year and, really, who wouldn't? MLE Gone Wild, yet again. And Sac is one of those teams everyone knows is doing the full-on rebuild but they haven't complicated matters by drastically overrating and overpaying incumbents and low-grade free agents like another team we all know and love. Sure, Beno Udrih and Francisco Garcia are useless poons way too often, but they don't hurt at all if the other dead weight is gone. Look it up. I'm right. Sac is about to run right past us. Again. Under Cohan's watch. Again.
So when you see Sacramento moving out players in the very near future (NBA Trade Deadline mere weeks away) and taking back not much in the way of future salary, plus probably more than a few first round draft picks for players like Miller and Salmons, you have to take a look at not only their incredible flexibility for 2010, but the coming offseason, as well, and as a Warrior fan, you have to throw up in your mouth a little. Not because you have manorexia and need to get into those sweet designer jeans you saw Marco matching with hideous shoes at the last Douchebag Bench Summit at Oracle.
Just because you have to.
*UPDATE: Monta still on the trading block.
Warriorsworld is reporting that Monta Ellis was on the block for Carlos Boozer but something about Boozer being a douche bag who would bolt and Belinelli being a supposedly valuable player held it all up, even though the move makes perfect sense for everyone.
With the Monta trade rumor mill still not shut the eff up by The Old Drunk and the league's lamest PR Team, the Warriors are suddenly trying to suggest they've got a product worth giving a shit about even WITHOUT Monta!
Seriously. That's where the blogosophere is headed now.
And of course, Monta's 3rd or 4th game back is the nationally televised grudge match in Dallas I said they'd be just the sort of dumb fuck team to activate him for, even if they shouldn't. So it's all still over for good in WeBelieveVille, in case a scintillating victory against an 8 man D League squad about to clear out its vets had you convinced we were playoff bound.
National TV = League Value Up.
Just ask Baron Davis and Stephen Jackson.
Bye bye, Monta.
The Warriors: Epic Suck since 1994.
