This is exactly why I hate the NBA. The Memphis Grizzlies, in the midst of a horrible season, agreed to buyout Damon Stoudamire's contract last week, and now he's going to sign with the defending champs for the veteran's minimum. New Orleans comes out of nowhere to lead the Southwest division ahead of Dallas and San Antonio. But who are the Hornets going to add for the veteran's minimum? What's the upside of rooting for a team that's not the Spurs, Suns, Celtics, or Pistons this year? Even if the Mavericks or Nuggets trade for Kidd, then what? Then there are five teams that it's not pointless to follow.
