This is from ESPN.com. The Trail Blazers were always good for a laugh, but there's some detail here on Patterson/Randolph that had me close to tears:


The funniest fight of the offseason: Portland's Ha Seung-Jin (a 7-foot-3 South Korean) and Nedzad Sinanovic (a 7-foot-3 Bosnian) getting into a fistfight while shooting free throws at a summer workout, with Ha reportedly screaming, "I'll sue! I'll sue!" before getting pulled away. But it didn't stop there: Ha found Sinanovic in the team's weight room and attacked him with a wooden stretching pole, nailing him twice before they were separated. Within 24 hours, they had made up.

But that's not my favorite part. In John Canzano's report about the incident for The Oregonian, he mentioned how this was a good-natured altercation compared to some of the Portland incidents in the past, leading to this paragraph: "This isn't the same as Zach Randolph cold-cocking Ruben Patterson two seasons ago, breaking his eye socket, then being chased around the facility, and later having to spend the night, in hiding, at Dale Davis' house because Randolph feared for his life. The Ha-Sinanovic bout was about good competition, and frustration, and boiling points."

The Spurs are announcing today that they've added the waived Michael Finley, Nick the Quick was signed a couple of days ago and a while back they signed power forward Fabricio Oberto. From the 8 man rotation that just won a title, they have lost..... no one. If this was anyone else, I'd be saying that they'll have trouble integrating the new men and there'll be grumblings about minutes, but this is the Spurs, who are absolute masters at merging new players and maintaining good team chemistry, and when people are moaning Popovich just benches them and carries on. They now have a four man front court: Mohammed, Duncan, Horry, Oberto (5 if you count Nesterovic). Bowen and Finley can be played for need - defense or scoring, and a very solid 4 guard rotation of Ginobili, Barry, Parker, van Exel. The plan seems to be to use Finley and van Exel the way they have done with Horry - sparingly through the regular season to keep them fresh for the playoffs.

Christ like.
