"I didn't know he was the captain. But, since you said it...I really didn't notice it I guess." - JaVale McGee when asked about John Wall's performance as captain

   .....Third Prize Is You're Fired

Longar Longar will no doubt join them there. He doesn't have a chance of making the big league roster; he's already 27 years old and is just too damn ordinary. He's here to make up the numbers in practice, as regular backup centre Nick Collison is struggling with injury. However, the D-League veteran and local boy has been a solid contributor throughout his career. Last year for the L.A. D-Fenders, Twice As Longar averaged 6.7ppg, 5.7rpg and 1.3bpg; the year before, he averaged 7.8ppg, 6.2rpg and 1.4bpg. Longar will probably return to the D-League, and since the L.A. D-Fenders no longer exist, he's a candidate to join the Tulsa 66ers as well.
