Sad ain’t it? Keith Van Horn did not don any NBA Basketball uniform on opening night. Instead, he wore an apron on top of a goddamn dress. Van Horn, the solid backup of Dirk Nowitzki in his heydays with the Dallas Mavericks last year, opted to sit out the NBA Basketball season to be with his family.
Although I don’t have anything against guys staying with and supporting the family, what Keith Van Horn is doing is just plain stupid. Hell, this guy could’ve supported his family with the $5 million salary he’ll be receiving for ANY NBA Basketball team as a midlevel salary exception.
Yup, ANY team.
Keith Van Horn is laying lower than the bent grass greens at Augusta National. So is his agent, David Falk. Meanwhile, the rest of the league doesn’t know whether to applaud or request that Van Horn undergo a CAT scan.
‘’I think there’s probably a little bit of both,’’ Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl said. ‘’I’m sure there’s some players saying, ‘Wow, why would he want to turn down that money?”’
The Denver Nuggets could’ve signed the solid seven-foot forward this season. Tough luck eh?
The Boston Celtics also were interested, so he could have made his season debut Wednesday at the TD Banknorth Garden. Had he signed a free-agent deal with the Celtics, Van Horn would have become the team’s resident historian of the Atlantic Division. The guy has spent more time on the Eastern seaboard than Tony Soprano.
Instead, Keith Van Horn is at home, making milk and baking cookies.
