Brethren: Update that just broke on NBA All Access: Charlotte: The Bobcats have traded Walter Herrmann and Primoz Brecez to Detroit for center Nazr Mohammad.
The SportsBrethren are noted lovers of the Argentine, but neither of us really cared for The Big Duck, Primoz. And honestly, I think I like Nazr Mohammad as a big defender to take some pressure of Mek in the post.
But part of me is a little stunned we're losing Herrmann.
More gut reactions after:
Brethren (cont'd): Bill Walton got pretty excited about our starting five now with The Nazr at the 5, Mek at the 4, GForce and JRich on the wings, and Ray Ray running the show. I see how on paper that team looks better than with Primoz tipping off.
Off the bench, we've now got Jeff "Playground Brethren" McInnis, Jared Dudley, Matt Carroll, DAnderson, Ryan Hollins, Othella Harrington, and Jamareo Davidson.
So we lose Fabio, gain some good size, and that's where we stand. Sigh.
Herrmann, you were loved by these two. As a Detroit Piston, you will still be loved. In the words of the greatest comedy ever, "Goodbye, my looooove!
PS: Oh, and my Lord, Morrison looks fantastically white trash. I love him.
Nacho: And now, in honor of the best player on the Magic., here's some shitty poetry...
Whatever we were calling you,
That name will be shouted out from the rooftops of Charlotte tonight.
As evening falls and you take the floor
resplendent in your orange and blue,
I'll host a party in your honor, and raise a glass to all we've been through.
Walter, sweet Walter
You had to spread your wings.
You've left us with a Nazi prophet
Which is just fine by me.
Bill Walton thinks the trade is fair,
And he might be right at that,
But I'd give up all the Primoz in the world,
Just to have you back.
I'd like to point out that Walter Herrmann had the best sports quote I've read in a while. From this video:
Lady, if you can't take a death threat, you shouldn't be in the NBA.
Godspeed, you magnificent bastard. Godspeed indeed.
