Something just occurred to me: wasn't Theo Ratliff supposed to be back by now? At one point there was talk he'd return before Andrew Bynum. Did the Lakers just decide to stash him in a nursing home and move on with their lives, like Homer did with Grandpa Simpson?
Shake yourself up a Perfect Manhattan whenever someone mentions:
- The Lakers' pick-and-roll defense,
- Kobe Bryant's place on the all-time scoring list,
- Ronny Turiaf and "energy" in the same sentence,
- Willis Reed, or
- The Phoenix Suns.
Seriously, can someone please find Theo? He could be lost and confused, and he needs to finish his applesauce before going to bed.
