Remember in The Dog where Kramer breaks up with his girlfriend and Jerry and Elaine diss her and talk about how happy they are to see her go (I can’t believe someone hasn’t killed her yet!), but then Kramer decides to get back together with her and Jerry and Elaine have to eat their words? Yeah, that’s kind of where we’re at right now.
- We got Tyson Chandler for nothing. Nothing!
– What was New Orleans thinking? Tyson Chandler for Chris Wilcox and Joe Smith? I’m surprised they wanted anything at all!

But in the NBA, that’s not the case. This deal was done and done. “Pending a physical” pretty much means, “Which side of the clubhouse do you want your locker to be on?” Tyson Chandler was coming back to OKC. He’d even Twittered about it. Twitter! I plugged his website for crying out loud. But then the whole thing blew up over a turf toe. How about that for a wooden spoon to the krispy nads?
But here’s the thing: It’s not like our entire future hinged on Tyson Chandler. He was just a piece to the puzzle. Everyone could already see that our future was incredibly bright with Kevin Durant, Jeff Green, Russell Westbrook and company. While obviously adding Chandler to the mix made things much better much quicker, it’s not the end of the world. And in fact, we’re lucky this thing didn’t go through and all of sudden were sitting here with a lame big man making $11 million sitting on the end of the bench. We really don’t need another Robert Swift. We’ve got talented but injury-riddled big man covered, thanks. Keep Reading…
