    In case you all missed it, well how can you blame yourselves, Earl Boykins signed with an Italian pro team. One year, $3.5-million contract. At least he didn't sign with Oscar Mayer.

    He was barely even in the NBA last year.

    Wow, the highest paid player in Italy is now a 5'5" 130 lb 32-year-old American who still looks like a kid. Wonder what the established Italian league vets will think of that.

    He was pretty good with the Nuggets a few years back. Which is all you can say for someone that short.

    Mugsy must be worth at least 2 million over there then.

    wow... maybe I should start sending some videos to Italian teams... I'm pretty sure I could get the league minimum, and I can't even touch the rim anymore.

    If this keeps up, the NBA is a minor league cesspool in 10 years.

    How can any 32-year old man weigh 130 pounds?

    During Boykins' last year at Eastern Michigan, the offense was basically let him dribble the ball for 35 seconds, then either take a three pointer or a jumper.

    But that might have had more to do with the coach Milton (Uncle Miltie) Barnes not being able to coach. Right, Slappy?
