The End Of The Greg Ostertag Era Has Sadly Come

The Bee has a fat story trying to get in every word about the trade. Suprising that Marty McNeal couldn't get Bobby Jackson, considering News10 got ahold of him for some quotes.

If you've been here before, you know how SKB stands on the issue. Bobbo has played in 54 percent of the team's regular season games the last three years. That's not good. We'll miss the experience and toughness of the bench, not to mention the instant offense. But the guy is 32 and coming off a tough abdominal injury to could limit him.

As far as Greg Ostertag goes, good riddance. I'm shocked (SHOCKED) that Utah actually took him back - must be a cap reason for it.

The thread on JazzFanz.com's message board regarding the trade is absolutely hysterical. The first few people are trying to convince everyone the story's a hoax, until more sources start breaking it. The best quotes follow:

"This is positively the most frightening thing I've read this off-season."

"I don't know how much to trust this - but if the Jazz bring back Tag' I will be convinced that Scott Layden is doing much more than just assistant coaching this team."

"NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This better not be true!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

"I can't even begin to tell you how pissed I will be if this proves true."

"Now I'm going to puke until I bleed."

"This must be how it feels to be a Clippers fan."

Highly entertaining. How can Kings fans really complain about the trade after seeing what happened to Utah?

Also, how many instances of strange coincedence make up a curse? Like, how many times did an athlete who had just graced the cover of Sports Illustrated blow out their knee before the `SI Jinx' was official? Three sounds about right.

We're asking because of a brewing "Curse of the McDonald's Commercial." Remember, Gerald Wallace getting a local TV commercial deal with McDeezer's? Gone in that offseason's expansion draft. So Bobby replaces him in the spots this season (despite playing 25 games), and he's shuttled to Tennessee.

Are you thinking what I'm thinking? Let's get expensive Kenny Thomas in a McDonald's campaign! Consider this a petition. Let's make it happen.

The Sacramento Kings are a tough act to follow, literally.

SKB does the dirty work so you can forget about the blood, sweat and tears.

Oh, you'll still need the tears in April, though.
