DJ Strawberry Traded From Phoenix to Houston For Sean Singletary

Posted in Blogroll on August 25th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

Minor deal went just went down in the NBA. I don’t know if it’s been reported yet, but 2nd year sg D.J. Strawberry has been sent to Houston for rookie Sean Singletary. The move was made because Strawberry wasn’t going to get any burn this season with all the shooting guards the Suns have. Phoenix adds depth at the pg position and cuts down on Steve Nash’s minutes to keep the oft injured star healthy. Both players go to playoff teams so I’d say this move is good by all. Singletary was one of the most productive players at his position in college with both his scoring and passing ability. He averaged 19.8 points, dished out 6.1 assists manning the point for Virginia and was also known for his on the ball defense. He was drafted by Sacramento with the 42nd pick and subsequently was traded with Patrick Ewing Jr. and Ron Artest to Houston for Bobby Jackson, Donte Green and a draft pick.

We got this…By the way, you so sexy…

Politics is politics but this next ad is so laughable it’s sickening. Women who vote for McCain given his abysmal record on a myriad of women’s right issues are setting their gender back pre 1921. It’s gonna be interesting when Hillary and Bill speak at the convention this week. Watch the convention people because if you don’t, you might miss something. This is going to be a landmark election on so many levels. Democrats are coming out publicly and announcing their support for McCain? Wow. McCain is using Hillary right now and Hillary is destroying her party by not speaking out against McCain..
