Espn.coms Bill Simmons: Ranking The MVP Race


446. Jamaal Tinsley
As far as I can tell, the first player with a non-expiring contract who was paid by his team to stay the hell away for an entire NBA season. That should have shown up in every Pacers box score: "Jamaal Tinsley: DNP (Paid to stay the hell away)."

LOL...this is gold.

Mike D'Antoni: We have to get Randolph off our 2011 books, Donnie.
Walsh: Come on, nobody's taking that contract. You saw the November attendance figures. We're headed for D-Day. The only guy dumb enough to take Randolph is Mike Dunleavy, and even he wouldn't do it.

(A few seconds of silence pass. Walsh and D'Antoni make eye contact. They jump from their chairs.)

Walsh: You call his home number, I'll call his cell!

And this is platinum :laugh:
