You’re the one that I want. Ooo hoo hoo. The one that I need. Oh yes indeed. -Grease
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! What’s crack-a-lacking sports fans? You know what time it is. It’s NBA Draft time. Wooo doggie! The time where hope springs eternal. Like my main man Mark Twain always says: “It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want…oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”
That’s draft day, ain’t it? I think I know what I want though. I think I want me a point guard. No, not to take away the starting job from Rajon Rondo. Not that. But to back him up. Keep on the attack him up. Don’t give any slack him up.
Don’t get me wrong,I love Eddie House. His contributions throughout the season immeasurable. His contributions in Game Six against the Lakers, immense. But let’s face it, he is a classic shooting guard in a 6-foot-1-inch point guard’s body.
I loved the idea of Sam-I-Am. I believed he would be a better insurance policy, particularly in the playoffs, for Rondo than House. But like Fonzie, I was wrrr. I was wrr. I was wrong. I do not like him in a box. I do not like him with a fox. I do like Mario Chalmers.
Super Mario Chalmers. And if he is still there at thirty, the C’s should snatch that cat up. Rock. Shock. Jayhawk! Rocked ‘em and shocked ‘em at the Tourney. This Alaskan is one stone-cold killer. If you try to stop him, you’re going to end up in an alley somewhere with the cats licking you.
Memphis ended up in an alley somewhere with the cats licking them. Chalmers was the Jayhawks’ go-to guy in the clutch. Not Brandon Rush. That says something. That says a lot. Chalmers isn’t a flashy player. But he makes big plays. In the half court set, he makes the right plays. He’s a pesky defender and a downright devastating shooter. He will probably be gone by the Celtics’ pick, but isn’t that what we said about another ex-Jayhawk. If I’m Boston, and he’s available, I’m drafting Super Mario. Now you’re playing with power!
