Cliff Robinson: So, uh... why are we here again?
Christian Laettner: Man... this is like...
Isiah Rider: Yeah, I'm not even in the NBA anymore.
Just-a-little-too-cheery-chick: We're all here today because you're NBA players with substance abuse problems!
Laettner: Crazy. It's crazy.
Cliff Robinson: I got no problems, man.
Rider: Hello? I'm not in the NBA anymore.
Laettner: Did you hear me? I said THIS IS CRAZY.
Robinson: YOU got problems, man. I'm good.
Rider: I'm... going to leave now.
Just-a-little-too-cheery-chick: Just calm down! This isn't crazy, and we're going to solve your problems today.
Robinson: I've been here like three times. You think I'm gonna suddenly change my mind?
Laettner: THIS IS FUCKING CRAZY.
Rider: Alright. Leaving.
We're talking about the same Mark Madsen, right? The one who on the last game of last season missed seven threes because the Timberwolves wanted to lose the game for a better draft spot? The one who was 1/15 in that game? Look, if the Timberwolves are trying to get Greg Oden, then the "let Madsen shoot" strategy is fine.
