Mama always says that pigs get fat, and hogs go to slaughter. That is central to my luck theory – get greedy, and your luck will run out. This theory has been proven by the sporting world of my hometown recently.
Oh, Ced. After the boating incident, you had the sympathy of everyone who has ever been pulled over unfairly, who has ever been followed around a store because of the way they looked, who has ever been judged harshly because you were on a boat with your mom and lots of bikini-clad women. Then you went and did this. In one night, you wasted the goodwill of a city who didn’t like you all that much in the first place. I hope a fresh start works out for you, and for goodness sake, lay off the sauce. It may help turn your luck around.
The Bulls brass told us that Mike D’Antoni was going to be the coach. WOOT. D’Antoni would be great! He did a great job with the Suns, and could be exactly what the Bulls young talent ne-what? The Knicks hired him? That’s ok, they told us. Remember Doug Collins? We still have a great relationship with him and he is a great coach! All we need to do is seal the deal. Except, they forgot to seal the deal. They also interviewed Kurt Rambis, Brian Shaw, Tyrone Corbin, Dwane Casey, Jeff Bzdelik, and then they hired… Vinny Del Negro? Interviewing 174 people doesn’t make you smart, John Paxson, it makes you unfocused. When considering draft picks, please don’t give Wonderlic tests and workouts to anyone but Derrick Rose and Michael Beasley. This isn’t the time to test your luck.
