The Sports Guy (who routinely gets out-picked by his wife, who picks "the teams she likes better" rather than through analysis) had this shining gem (from here):
"So Orlando makes the Finals with an unconventional lineup and a style that confounded just about everybody. They flip three backups for Vince Carter, seemingly solving their hole at shooting guard that Kobe exploited so brutally. (I had them as the favorites in the East after that trade.) What possessed them to spend $50 million on Gortat and Brandon Bass over just bringing back Turkoglu and making another run at the title? Now they're just a conventional NBA team with conventional guys in conventional positions ... um, that's not how you made the Finals, fellas."
Really, Bill? We bring back our back-up center, and replace Tony Battie with Brandon Bass...um, that's exactly how we made the Finals, oh-brilliant-prognosticator. We also replaced Turkoglu with Barnes (a downgrade, but given the age difference, one that I don't think will be as significant as predicted), and added long-range shooter Ryan Anderson. If we're a "conventional NBA team," what the heck are we doing with TWO power forwards that can shoot the three? Heck, Simmons had two bullet points higher up criticizing teams for paying for Turkoglu because of his age, but we should have just brought him back? The hypocrisy and lack of any sort of consistent analysis is mind-boggling.
