Reports state that the Sonics are going to be bringing in former Warriors coach, PJ Carlesimo, to lead the young Seattle franchise. PJ is a good coach and an even better choke receiver. Latrell Sprewell's choking of him in the 90's continues to be one of my favorite stories in the history of the NBA.
So now I look ahead to the most likely candidates to strangle Carlesimo in Seattle.
100-1 Kevin Durant, Jeff Green, and Carl Landry - let's be honest, no rookie is going to go apeshit in their first season
75-1 Nick Collison and Luke Ridnour - white guys aren't very tough in general and PJ's goomba ass could probably whoop these two anyway
63-1 Wally Szczerbiak - Much like myself, Wally is a Redhawk and that means that he liable to do anything at any time. Wally will soon realize that Carlesimo is no Charlie Coles and that could anger him.
50-1 Earl Watson - likely to lose a lot of minutes unless Ridnour gets traded and Earl could use those massive ears to suffocate PJ.
30-1 Delonte West - he looks incredibly ghetto with all those tattoos
15-1 Chris Wilcox - he's big, he's black, he looks like he doesn't put up with any shit. Rumor has it, that while at Maryland, Gary Williams used to sweat through his suit because he was terrified of Wilcox.
5-1 Robert Swift - red hair + 7 feet tall + tattoos = one crazy mofo
2-1 Danny Fortson - when you played at UC under Bob Huggins, you aren't going to be considered a classy individual. Has a tendency to hammer some flagrant fouls which won't sit well with the coach. There could be some serious incidents between Fortson and PJ this season and I can't wait to watch it unfold.
Seattle is going to be a fun team to watch anyway, might as well throw a coach in there with a penchant for getting choked out. This is going to be interesting...
