Quote:
An exceptionally well-connected league insider once told me the story of how Brian Cardinal got his mid-level. Seems Memphis owner Michael Heisley, frustrated by general manager Jerry West's lack of activity, walked into West's office one day and asked why he hadn't signed anyone yet. So an exasperated West picked up his phone, called Cardinal's agent and offered the mid-level on the spot. Then he turned to Heisley and said something along the lines of "There, you happy now?"

Man, I need to make sure Jerry has my phone number - he coulda called me and offered me the minimum. That woulda pissed Heisley off even more.

Mitch should try to put a story like that out there:

"Yea so Jerry came into my office and was like 'Make a move', so I was like Yo Gump and Slava here's a fat contract"

He did. Gave a fat contract to Vlade. Pickup Sasha's and Cook's options. Gave money to Vlade Divac and McKie, the walking wounded.
