Say it ain’t so, Sebastian: “They really had to go ahead and make Telfair a throw-in? Telfair was my island of happiness in this hellstorm of an offseason. Whatever happened, I could always look forward to Telfair getting real minutes in an up-tempo system. The man is a genius in the open floor, at least in flashes. He’s just been stuck in half-court systems since his sophomore season. Now he’s stuck in the triangle, not to mention 40 other point guards. I didn’t need to see Telfair live up to his potential as a great change-of-pace distributor/scorer guard in a run-and-gun system. What bothers me is that he’ll likely never get a real chance. This one really took the wind out of my sails.” [Cavs the Blog]
About that A-Rod home run: “If you’re sitting in Section 181, Row J, in the aisle seat between Section 180 and 181 tonight, I hope you brought your glove.
The folks at SeatGeek have determined that your seat is “The Money Seat” – i.e., the spot where Alex Rodriguez’s 600th career home run is most likely to land. It’s going to land in the aisle, so be nimble enough to catch it on the stairs.” [CastroTurf]

And finally, Team USA is no longer LeBron’s: “Team USA has fallen into the capable hands of Kevin Durant, and while it’s easy to praise his commitment when KD has yet to even suit up for Team USA in a real game, he actually seems to be the most suitable face for the program going forward. Team USA’s renaissance has always been more about Kobe than LeBron, and it’s Durant that shares Bryant’s ridiculous drive, obsessive focus, and incredible will. The Durantula is humble and hungry, and though he never asked to be the leader of this team — and he won’t, ever — it just makes too much sense for him not to be.” [Hardwood Paroxysm]
