Drew Bledsoe: Every Patriots fan is nodding right now.

Michael Vick: Textbook case. Everybody's already writing off Virginia Tech for next season, despite the fact that they never won anything with Vick. They might post a 12-0 next season.

Chris Webber: Don't laugh. What happens if C-Webb leaves the Kings this summer, and they use the extra cap space to sign two second-tier free agents?

Vince Carter: Watch the Raptors in two years, after Vince joins MJ in DC (and you know it's happening).

Griffey: The baseball version of Ewing.

Kobe Bryant: After they split him up from Shaq and he gets his own team.

Pete Sampras: This one makes sense, if you think about it. Taking Sampras out of the men's tennis equation could make Wimbledon more interesting and allow younger, more charismatic players to rise to the forefront.

Barry Bonds: It's unfair, but he fits the formula.

Manning: You can feel the "Manning goes down and the Colts rally behind James & Harrison" moment coming in the next few years, can't you?


doesn't sound like a very good theory.

Sure. He's the leader. They one games without him too. Even when he had some bad games.

Don't get me wrong. Roy is a pimp.

I love my Lakers but I think that any effective two guard would be able to successfully replace Kobe with practically the same results in this system.
