  • I knew this would be somewhat "controversial". A human being is OF COURSE more important than a dog. I guess what gets missed in my piece is the character of Stallworth versus Vick. Stallworth didn't act maliciously - in fact, it was his first offense and admitted everything to the police and was cooperative in every way. He reached out to the... Read More family who actually helped him with his plea deal. Vick on the other hand had been cruel to animals (and believe me, I'm not an animal lover myself; not that I would ever kill or torture them) for years and tried to keep the whole thing on the hush and wasn't cooperative with the cops or the NFL until he got caught with hard proof. The result of Stallworth's crime is of course worse than Vick's, but there was no intention there, just stupidity. Vick had both.

  • Sorry Al... ever since the beginning I've been screaming for the Knicks to take Jerryd Bayless because the guy is perfect for D'Antoni's system. Bayless was arguably the most athletic player in the draft and a complete offensive player - getting to the basket and hitting from the perimeter. As far as never being a true point guard, you might have a point there, but look at those that still succeeded - Allen Iverson, Gilbert Arenas, Monta Ellis, and Stephon Marbury - all shoot first guards, but still averaged a decent amount of assists regardless. And, Bayless DID average four dimes a game his last year at Arizona, which is not bad at all on the college level. In a rebuilding year, I think you just have to take the best talent available and while I give props to Gallinari for doing so well in a tough Italian league, I just don't see him being "tough" enough to make it here in the NBA, despite all of his determination. He just doesn't have the build, athleticism, or anything that will make him stand out, such as Dirk was a tall perimeter threat, Drazen Petrovic can hit from anywhere, Arvydas Sabonis had ridiculous vision and instincts. And, soon enough, Ricky Rubio will be a phenom here because of his ability to pass and play defense. All of the aforementioned Euros might not have been ready athletically or physically, but they had that "something" about them. Gallinari had nothing. I hated this pick almost as much as I hated Frederic Weis when Ron Artest was still available. Just a dumb move, but I guess the Knicks have time to waste and let Gallinari "develop" before 2010 hits us. And damn you Sarge for rubbing it in! I can't wait for the Knicks to take LeBron away from you... we'll see who's laughing then.
