Lenny Joins the Fold


The Sonics announced today that Lenny Wilkens is now their Vice Chairman (credit to sonicscentral.com for noticing this first).

Of note in the team's press release, "[Wilkens] will also continue as lead analyst on Sonics’ telecasts aired by Fox Sports Net."

Sorry, fans, you're going to have to endure some more of Lenny's ancient ramblings on how to play the game, except that now he knows he can't be fired.

I wonder how Bob Hill feels about this. Has there ever been a head coach who liked having another head coach - one who ostensibly wants to work again - in any capacity on the team? It's bad enough for Hill that Lenny was hanging around the games as a commentator, but now he's part of the front office, for crying out loud.

Lenny is the man, stop it. I'd rather listen to 10 Lenny Wilken's with colds than one Craig Ehlo. I'm an old school Sonics fan, Lenny is the man.

Lenny is big-time and knows the game. He may be ancient, but he's worth listening to.

A story about advance scouts and the Sonics on the Seattle Weekly blog ends like this....

"One interesting tidbit from their patter: on more than one occasion, the sets the Sonics ran elicited laughs from my quartet of neighbors. Not a good sign."

A little off topic, Guys... I have a question. Two days ago I found this site:
[url=http://www.rivalspot.com]Rivalspot.com - Xbox tournaments for money[/url]
They say you can play online EA sports game tournaments on any console for cash... had anyone tried that before? Looks like a cool idea...
Are there any other sites where you can play sports games for real moneys? I Googled and found only Bringit.com and Worldgaming.com but it looks these guys don't specialize in sport gamez. Any suggestions?
