(Sorry for the lack of posts this week, hopefully this makes up for it. -Jake)
[Inside a darkened Vegas room Wizards GM Ernie Grunfeld (EG) and DeShawn Stevenson (DS) begin negotiations on a contract.]
DS: G, I don't think you understand me, I need this money.
EG: How on earth am I supposed to justify $25 million dollars for a guy that contributed as many points during the playoffs as Gilbert did? Compared to you, Jarvis Hayes looked like Elvin Hayes!
[Jarvis enters in nervously]
Jarvis: Were you looking for me Ernie?
EG: No Jarvis, just hang out over in the corner until we're finished. I'll
release call for you when I'm done.
[Ernie neglects to mention they're in a circular room]
DS: Hey, how'd you do that?
EG: Do what?
DS: Put that line through the one word you said.
EG: I don't know, I'm just reading from the script.
DS: Okay...Anyways, I still don't see why you're shortchanging me, I shot 50% almost the whole year. How well did you do shooting?
EG: C'mon DeShawn, don't be like this.
EG: What do Simon and Garfunkel have to do with this?
DS: (More silence)
EG: Okay, if you won't talk then I guess I'll just have to go to plan B. Eddie!
Eddie Jordan: (still kind of tiffed about the whole Thibodeau thing) Yeah, what do you want?
EG: Bring in Mr. Brown.
Eddie: As you wish.
[Eddie goes back and fetches Mr. Brown, Ernie appears somewhat surprised as they walk back in. It is evident to the audience that both Ernie and Eddie know Mr. Brown]
EG: Eddie, you idiot!
EG: I wanted Devin Brown, not Kwame Brown!
Kwame: Can we hurry this up? I've got to work on my rehab.
[Fade to black as Kwame heads off to "rehab".]
