In-and-out dribble to freeze Josh McRoberts, switch to the left and cock the hammer on Chris Bosh. It’s really, really nice to have Kevin Durant back. (Unless you like the team he’s playing, we guess.)

THE DEAL IS DONE: In conclusion the Lakers will receive Dwight Howard, Chris Duhon, and Earl Clark. They have given up Andrew Bynum (to the 76ers), Josh McRoberts (to the Orlando Magic), Christian Eyenga (to the Orlando Magic) and a lottery protected 2017 1st round pick (also to the Orlando Magic).

I imagine Mitch Kupchak has Ice Cube’s Today Was a Good Day on loop in his office right now. For that matter all Lakers fans should have the song on loop today in celebration.

Look at that beard. Look at that wonderful beard. LOOK AT IT! The hills of Carolina are alive in that beard. That beard brought a case of beer to the tattoo parlor. That beard visits the Waffle House every Tuesday and sits at the same booth. Charlotte has a spirit animal, and it’s not an oversized wasp or a bobcat reading Ebony magazine. It’s Josh McRoberts.

Until we can call Charlotte the Hornets again, they should be called the Charlotte McJosh-Bobs. As in, “did you watch the McJosh-Bobs game?” which is, of course, a rhetorical question Charlotte fans ask themselves in a mirror, late at night.
