You know, just one of those classic conspiracies where David Stern vetoes a trade for the league’s best point guard which causes the reigning Sixth Man of the Year to complain his way out of the city which leads to an undermanned team being outclassed and eliminated from the playoffs then somehow snagging one of their biggest rivals in a trade before shipping out the second-best center in the league — who is secretly so injured he won’t play the following season — in a trade that lands them the best center in the league who is both coming off an injury and seemingly 78 percent the player he was before back surgery which causes the team to struggle through injuries to every one of their rotation players while needing every bit of “help” along the way to secure the eighth playoff seed in their conference despite having the highest payroll in the entire league. Pretty run of the mill, really. Glad someone finally noticed.
