Wednesday Evening linkage - The Emeka Chronicles
News, rumor, lies, truths, half-truths and innuendo concerning the Emeka Okafor / Charlotte Bobcats contract negotiations which are rumored to be falling apart by the second.
Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer gives us a few sign and trade options in case a deal with Okafor cannot be worked out. How would Shawn Marion float your boat?
Rufus on Fire says "do not trade Emeka at any costs". He also says that the main problem with people's perception of Emeka is that he isn't Dwight Howard... but then again, who is?
Over at Hoopsvibe, some uninformed assclown comes up with the idea of trading away Emeka Okafor & Gerald Wallace for Luol Deng and table scraps... My advice to this joker, pick something else to write about.
Charley Rosen says of Emeka Okafor that $10 million per year is "thoroughbred" money, but Mek is just a "quarterhorse"
PistonFever is resurrecting the Rasheed Wallace trade rumors. I was really hoping that we had put the 'Sheed nonsense behind us.
As expected, Queen City Hoops does a superior job breaking down the Okafor trade possibilites.
So tell me, Will we find a way to keep #50 long term or is he gone?
