votes have been tallied. The dais is adorned with a bedazzled NBATV
microphone. The GM's are in their finest Armani sweat suits. It's time
for... Drum roll please... ... Fine. We will go without the drum
roll... The Pritch Slap Awards!
The nominees for most bad ass GM in an NBA draft are:
Cho, with the Charlotte Bobcats. Rich had a decent draft for someone
that was hired by a team he swindled a few months prior. That situation
calls to mind the scene in "Catch me if you Can" when Frank Abignale
gets hired by the FBI and then he has to go into the office and work
with the people he just screwed over. I guess if your Charlotte you are
just happy to have this guy on your side.
Morway, with the Indiana Pacers. The Pritch Slap Awards are not just
about making your team better, they can also be about ruining another
team. Which is why we have nominated David Morway. The trade that
landed George Hill may not make Indiana a contender but it certainly
took the Rascal(tm) out from under the San Antonio Octogenarians. Now
how is Old Man Duncan supposed to get up and down the court?
Buchanan, with our Portland TrailBlazers. Don't be fooled by the title
Interim GM, on Chad's W2 it reads: Intern to Mr. Allen. Which is a
pattern with Portland, the namesake of this award did his best work in
the 2006 Draft as an assistant GM. Chad did past Portland GM's proud
with this draft, trading away three players to two teams, bringing in
Raymond Felton and drafting another three. All told, Chad had his hands
on 8 players in this draft. That is special.
And the winner is...
Congratulations Chad! Keep this up and one day there will be an award with your likeness!
