Anyone still following hoops in the offseason?  I was pretty surprised to see D-Will re-sign with the Nets tonight, despite their acquisitions of (overrated) Joe Johnson and Gerald Wallace.  I figured he'd only stick around if they locked up Dwight Howard, which sounds a bit less likely now.  It's gonna be interesting to see where the big guy winds up now, if anywhere.  If the Nets somehow pull off a miracle swap for him still, that could make the East pretty interesting next year.  I'm praying the Heat don't land Ray Allen as well.  LeBron finally won a championship in large part to their outside shooting in the Finals, so adding Allen into the mix makes me nervous, even if Mike Miller retires.  Sounds like the Celts may nab Jason Terry if Ray Allen bolts, which would finally revitalize their bench.  Odom finding his way back to L.A. should give the Clips bench a big boost too, assuming he's back to being of sound mind of course.  I'm still waiting to see if the Wolves can make a play for Pau too.  He'd be a good fit alongside Love and Rubio, though having two of those "soft" Spaniards on the same team could be trouble.

I'm starting to think Basketball has become a game where to be the best, you have to master the art of slamming yourself into defenders while making layups at the same time.

I can't stand this element of the game nowadays either, especially as it relates to LeBron and a few others.  Fortunately he didn't aggravate me as much as usual during the Finals, as he managed to do a good amount of damage from outside of 3 feet (and the free throw line) for a change.  That, and all the ridiculous flopping and flailing after every jumpshot - just pathetic.

I finally got around to renting People v. Lucas recently and found it pretty entertaining, especially since I'm of the older generation who grew up on the originals and have a tough time stomaching the prequels.  I don't know if I necessarily agree that these flicks "are made for kids" though, at least not 2.5 of the 3 OT movies.  Much of the prequels, perhaps.  The prequels and some of ROTJ were definitely made with the toy licensing towards kids in mind too though, which is unfortunate.  I've pretty much concluded that George Lucas went to crap when he had/adopted his own kids however.  I think Lucas had a kid's wonderful sense of imagination and creativity during the making of the OT, but then dumbed everything down 10-fold when he started looking at the saga through the eyes of his own kids, losing any sense of his own personal vision in the process.  Very sad.

I'm definitely digging the Ewok set too, despite having always hated the furry little turds in general.  What's next - getting excited over an SA Jar Jar?  Kudos to Hasbro for the added variety with the various hoods and such.  I assume more than a few of us will be buying a couple sets just to mix and match with these and do some Ewok army building.  My excitement over the pilots is rather tempered though, likely due to the oversaturation of them in recent years.  Porkins is too skinny as well.  I'll probably pick one up though.

Here's a group shot I took of all my droids....

That's a great pic there Pete.  Congrats on being one of the few to nab this set!  I'm still praying these find their way into next year's supposed B-A-D line (sans silly hats), otherwise, these stupid astromechs will be the bane of my existence.
