Atkins Diet


Well I'll be darned, shiver me timbers, yo head for the hills
I picked a weeping willow, and a daffodil
So back up bucko or I'll pulverize McGruff
'Cause this little piggy gets busy and stuff...

The local NBA franchise cleared up their backcourt situation a bit with the signing of veteran Chucky Atkins. I'm not buying my Western Conference Finals tickets yet, but most of the Powder Blue Nation is content with the signing. Atkins can score, but with Melo and AI, he'll be expected to do the other things for the squad (read: distribute, defense.)

Steve Blake took his hesitant shooting and soccer-looking head to Portland, who I think may have overpaid for his game. Atkins, meanwhile, was practically willing to walk out of the mess that are the Memphis Grizzlies, as he even signed his deal in the Pepsi Center parking lot. Maybe the offices were being fumigated or something? Atkins push-it tempo is desirable to the team as the try to run and be more active on the offensive end.

I expect we'll see Coach Karl even mix it up from time to time with Atkins, AI, and JR Smith interchanging in the backcourt. Former Colorado 14er Von Wafer also might be the wildcard and get some minutes at the 2 spot.

What has really piqued my interest is that Atkins name is Kenneth Lavon Atkins; there's no "Chucky" in sight. Maybe he was a big fan of the Child's Play movie franchise and decided that should be his new name.

I'm hella curious to see what AI will do for a full season in Denver. I watched every game of his in Georgetown and here in Philly and I'm glad he was able to go to a contender at this stage of his career.

However, he's only been able to win with a team full of vets and role players. Atkins can be a beast at times--he's like what Speedy Claxton should've been.

I saw your guy Von Wafer had 40+ points in their last game. And he shot 45% for the entire camp.

^Zilla- always appreciate your visits brah, Im gonna cop your CD soon. Great analogy on Claxton/Atkins...AI actually just bought a new house here too, so he's putting down roots.

^Anon- I hope we're right on Wafer, I've been pimping him for a while now.

Personally I hate the Atkins signing. He's another shooter on a team that's full of guys that need the ball.

I just don't see how it works out in the end.

Wafer is a good sign, although Skita also used to tear up Summer League and we all know how well that turned out.

^Spotty- I see where Nugs fans could be concerned; he's not exactly the distributer at PG we needed. Hopefully, being a vet, he'll know his role and tweak his game.
