Saying Goodbye

Up until recently, a traditional center was a necessity for a Western Conference team because most of the traditional centers played in the West. With Yao out for the duration and Shaq in Cleveland fucking up their way of life, has the Organization rethought that?

I ask because word's come down that Minnesota's made young Mr. Hollins an offer that the Mavs have no interest in matching -- capped with a Best Wishes tweet from The Boss.

I'm unsure of the wisdom of letting go an athletic young center who plays his guts out -- you will always have a soft spot in my heart for posterizing Timmy Duncan, man. On the other hand, I see a rationale -- young Mr. Hollins is practically an infant in NBA terms and he's going to cost time and money more efficiently utilitzed elsewhere.

All that's by the way. Fare well, Ryan Hollins, and go in peace.
