    A fake penis?

    From a USA Today article:

    Former NBA Sixth Man of the Year and two-time champion Lamar Odom revealed in his upcoming memoir, "Darkness to Light," that he cheated a drug test in order to play for USA Basketball at the 2004 Olympics in Athens.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    “We started googling ‘fake penises’ and studied different ways to beat a drug test,” he writes.

    So he ordered one, and though he "was paranoid it wouldn’t work,” he says he used it — filled with his trainer's urine — and passed the test.

    “(An official) stuck a thermometer in the cup to gauge the temperature … satisfied that the pee was mine, said ‘Welcome to Team USA,’ ” Odom writes.

    That is unfair to Devin Booker. He produced as a young Shooting Guard.
    Even when the Suns made him the face of the franchise at a young age.

    And he did everything you could expect when playing the Point by default.
    And still being our top Shooting Guard. James Harden is an exception.

    It is just like the Suns playing all sort of Small Forwards at Power Forward
    and faulting them for not outplaying NBA Power Forwards.

    And just like promoting Igor from a lifer Assistant to Head Coach and
    expecting that he would magically fit the promotion, which he did not.

    Devin does not need to pull his head out. He needs to be used properly.

    I think this was sarcasm on CC's part. Just a hunch.

    An appropriate smiley would have helped, if that were the case. :)

    Lets not Blame Booker for all the turnovers and bad shooting % because he farts perfume. He played much better when healthy and playing with Oubre. Booker is a Max player and should be the Harden on this team. To say point Book can not work is short sighted. That's why I say Booker needs to pull his head out. :devil:

    Double dipping. Going to be the best paid coach in the league. And he gets a point guard.

    The Pelicans with a good hire:

    Evan Sidery‏ @esidery

    Evan Sidery Retweeted Shams Charania

    Langdon was a name who I thought made plenty of sense to be the Suns GM, if they decided to go in a different direction. David Griffin is building a powerhouse front office around Zion.


    Evan Sidery added,

    Shams CharaniaVerified account @ShamsCharania

    New Orleans has agreed on deal with Brooklyn assistant general manager Trajan Langdon to make him the new GM working alongside David Griffin, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium.
