    Man, I already got excited that nobody mentioned Gay on page one.

    But, yeah. Rudy Gay to be gone in 3.... 2... 1. Hollinger is not a huge Gay guy. At all.

    Agree! Morey is a pro in stats. He definately knows more about stats than Hollinger.

    "My dad could beat up your dad!"

    Congrats to Hollinger. It's probably only a matter of time before some NBA team throws enough money at me to leave CF.net and take an executive position in the front office.

    Remember when teams were snatching up college coaches left and right, and it didn't work out? It will be like that, but with clutchfans.

    Wow, yeah, nitpick at the guy, but what do you want: more Chad Fraud? (shiver)

    I'm proud to have never become an "insider" for ESPN's NBA coverage, but now there's no reason whatsoever.

    Yahoo could really capture the NBA fan market now, IMHO.

    I would gladly be snatched up by the Lakers, Spazz, or Spurms, just so I can sabotage their team.

    If this (http://www.nba.com/statistics/efficiency.html) is what you're referring to, then you're just flat out wrong. How the hell can adding the stats up blindly as if one point = one rebound = one assist = one steal = one block = -1 turnover be better than a similar but more advanced and reasoned formula that accounts for rates, accounts for pace, and accounts for TS%, and doesn't measure starters versus reserves either? If you want starters vs. reserves you'll have to look at net +/- or something more advanced like that.
