    Kind of weird… I had just signed him in my Association mode on 2K

    I like Amundson. He hustles.

    I’m confused as to why they released Sims though. Thought they’d give him more minutes to show what he’s got.

    Considering NO’s history, it’s about damn time that we signed a pirate.

      David West was a Musketeer. That involves dressing like a pirate, I am pretty sure.

        DW couldn’t rock the ponytail like Sweet Lou. But I’d be happy to trade the two

    Awesome. Was really dissappointed when we tried to sign him a couple of seasons ago but Golden State outbid us.
