Not a post for 10 days, and when TYI does bring you something, it's about Drew Gooden losing his beard-growing bet to DeShawn Stevenson. (And the damn thing was already on True Hoop so you've probably seen it already anyway.)

In other news (via Blog-a-Bull), Ben Gordon appears to be considering 'pulling a Childress.' Doesn't seem too likely, but prepare for some non-linear, expletive-laced ranting if Paxson allows it to happen.

(Incidentally, the hardcase who posted this bit of news on Blog-A-Bull while bragging that he "plans to laugh his ass off" once the dollar starts to return to the Euro, should give up his self-satisfied plans for mirth-making and start reading Dean Baker.)

Bengo, maybe you should read the article too. The Euro is in a bubble now, too. Not that I care that much about the impact it has on NBA free agents.

If BG needs to go to Europe to get the money he feels he deserves, then I wish him well and hopefully he sends us a postcard. I don't know why more of these mid-level guys don't go abroad. It's more money and it would seem like less pressure. Plus, who wouldn't want to live in Italy or Spain or Greece for a few years. Moscow would be a completely different story, though.

and just to be clear, I didn't mean mid-level salary exception, I meant mid-level talent, a good player, but not an all-star.

@ bullshooter : if you're talking about moskow as a bad weather city, i can understand your comment. But seriously, moskow is very much like a western european city these days, and a wealthy man can lead a very 'fun' life there ;-)

Yeah, I was talking about the weather :-) Although how much worse can it be than Chicago weather in the winter?

I agree with Bullshooter, afterall there will be other mid-level talent players to take their place if they leave for Europe.
