The off-season has been hectic yet quiet at the same time. We haven’t seen the blockbuster trades of last off-season, like the TMac-Franchise swap, or the Shaq to Miami deal. (Unless you consider Fatoine ‘Brick’ Walker’s relocation to Miami as a blockbuster). We have seen odd moves like Memphis’ addition of two veteran point guards, we could also call it Memphis’ addition of two undersized shooting guards, both titles sound bad. Boston added a guy who has the nickname ‘scrub.’ The off-season, my friends, sounds very off.
Big name players have been waived under the league’s new amnesty clause, and then signed by new teams. Doug Christie and Michael Finley are just two of the players to be waived under this provision. Without further delay here are the top ten off-season acquisitions (as promised) in reverse order.
10. Nate Robinson, New York Knicks
The only rookie in my list. I had no intention of adding rookies, but Nate is going to be special. He looks like a hybrid of Spud Webb and Earl Boykins already, pint-sized superstardom. The Knicks have no problem with putting butts in seats; the addition of Nate will do the exact opposite, he will be getting butts out of seats, standing in ovation. Go little man go!
