Ball Don't Lie - NBA

I don't know about you, but I'm getting tired of seeing the same NBA names pop up over and over again in summer headlines, articles and blog posts.

For months now, it's been Ramon Sessions(notes) this, Nate Robinson(notes) that.

One minute Allen Iverson(notes) is going to Miami, the next he's signing with Memphis.

Restricted free agent forward David Lee(notes)? Oh, he's close to signing with the Knicks— no he's not— yes he is— wait! Now he's reportedly skipping camp to eat a poppy seed bagel.

And, oh girl, don't even get me started on that Ricky Rubio(notes) character! [/snaps fingers]

Honestly, this same ol' non-transaction news is killing me, which is why I'd like to propose a simple, and totally implausible, solution to end the regurgitated summer madness ...

Let's just put 'em all on the same team.

Which team, you ask? It doesn't really matter. I mean, I guess we could plop 'em on the Knicks seeing as all five guys have at one point or another been rumored to end up there, but I'm just as fine with giving them to the Bucks or the Clippers or whoever.

Heck, we could even get really crazy and create a new franchise just for "The Summer Five." How does the Kansas City Cheetahs sound? The Las Vegas Celine Dions? Or do you want to push the "NBA international" envelope and go up with the Barcelona Dudes?

I don't care. I'll leave the city and team name in your more than capable hands.

All I know is that I'm tired of reading about Sessions and Iverson and Nate Rob and Lee and Ricky Rubio's biceps every 20 minutes. So let's get 'em on the same team and be done with it.

Sure, that starting lineup may be a tad undersized for the NBA, but whatever — we'll play Nate at the four spot. You know you'd watch.
