It's not official yet, but I'm so giddy over the announced Joe Johnson sign and trade that I can't help myself. Apparently the Hawks are getting Johnson in return for Boris Diaw and two lottery-protected draft picks. And the best part is that Phoenix apparently WANTS Diaw. As I kept saying yesterday, I feel like I'm about to get punk'd. Here are my Top 3 memories from the Boris Diaw Experience:
3. After being passed the ball, Boris screams and hands it to the guy guarding him.
2. After being passed the ball, Boris screams and chucks it into the stands.
1. That sweet dunk Boris had that one time in warm-ups.
That was a little harsh but I can't help myself, as I'm well past the point of return now. If this deal somehow falls through, I don't see any way that I can recover.

sportingnews.com (Jim B. in Pittsburgh) -- Dolphins rookie linebacker Channing Crowder wrestles boars in the off-season "maybe four, five, six times a week," whereas fellow Dolphins rookie Manuel Wright openly cries after being yelled at. Here are some possible nicknames for the dynamic duo:
• Fire and Ice
• Cortese and Costanza
• The Odd Couple
• Whiskey and Water
• Tango & Cash
Actually, the only one I like is Tango & Cash, which makes absolutely no sense.
