Andrei is a bitch but I would love to have him on my team September 23, 2007

Yes, Andrei Kirilenko is a whiny bitch who speaks Russian and hell knows what the heck is he talking in his language to himself everyday. But, one thing You, me, we, they, cannot deny is that Andrei Kirilenko is a special player, just watch Eurobasket and it will show you just how good he is and was.

Everyone knows about how “unhappy” he is at Utah, but if you don’t, here’s a peek

“Last year, we had a conversation with him,” Kirilenko said, “and [Utah coach Jerry] Sloan said, ‘Andrei, if you don’t like something about the way I conduct training you could always break the contract with the Jazz.’ So that’s exactly what I want to do now!”

Basically anyone with brains wouldn’t leave a 53 million dollar contract on the floor and just walk, but then again you never know about Andrei. Anyway, just that you know, now that the Andrei Kirilenko to Washington stuff died a few days ago, here comes some news that puts AK-47 (ammoless) in a straight up deal for the Nets’ very own Richard Jefferson.

You gotta feel bad for RJ, I mean he’s been involved in trade talks after trade talks and his reaction? donate 3.5 million dollars to U of A, now that’s class. The Nets were desperately terrible in their defense after topping the league in 2005, with Kirilenko we can return to that status with his defense and of course provide the team with a LEGIT shot blocking presence in case Sean Williams doesn’t show up.

RJ’s been here for a very long time, I mean he was one of the originals when I started supporting the team, so his presence together with Kidd and reluctantly Collins, gives me hope that the team could still scale the heights that they reach back in 2003. But now, come to think of it, If we are going to shake things up slowly, this is the deal to start off with.

Besides, it should be noted that RJ missed tons of playing time over the last couple of years so to me, so the trade for Andrei Kirilenko should leave those injury worries to another team, and by trading for AK, we ge a dude who can slide over and play some 4 if Larry wants to play small ball so it’s all good. Seriously, Kirileno maybe a headcase but man, he can play defense that’s for sure.
