Might as well get this party started, as a cancelled season was averted and Santa is bringing us basketball this year. I needed a place to stab myself, as word is the Lakers are going to acquire Chris Paul for Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom. As a Celtics fan, this annoys me greatly. Two soft old farts for the best PG in the league. First they get Pau Gasol in his prime for nothing, and now this. What's next, Blake Griffin for Luke Walton and Steve Blake? As a current resident of Los Angeles, I'm going to need to start drinking now.
