Kirilenko or Batum (with poll)?


During the offseason, it's quite easy to become emotionally attached to many various ideas of what our favorite basketball team might become. Most of these ideas will never come to fruition. Remember being dumped by the love of your life in ninth grade? That's how I felt when Portland matched the Batum offer.

Okay, I didn't feel that way when they matched--I felt that way as soon as I realized that David Kahn and Neil Olshey were like a pair of four year-olds attempting to cheat against each other in a game of Candyland. Sure, there were question marks surrounding Batum, but I WANTED him. Logic cannot always tamper emotion.

But, just like as it was in the ninth grade, the offseason hormonal roller coaster has turned our sights to a new object of interest. A certain tall glass of water named Andrei Kirilenko. They say where a door closes, a window always opens. The question is, which way would I rather break into the house?
