Finally, with a little help from Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Times, we’ve been made aware: if you want to find out what Trevor Ariza is really thinking, just ask boxer Andre Berto.â†µ
Berto recently had lunch with Ariza and told the Times that he senses the former Laker “missed his old stomping grounds.” Cue Chris Connelly and a violin.â†µ
“He’s handling it,” Berto said when I asked him if he had a sense on how Ariza felt about going to Houston and missing out on a second championship ring. “I don’t know if he felt it was his best decision, but he’s handling the situation.”â†µ
Completely necessary. Every bit of it. Not much going on in Lakerville right now? Let’s see if Ariza wishes he could have gotten a ring!â†µ
Don’t make a big deal out of this, Rockets fans. Obviously, Ariza had a tough time last season, but once he falls back into his natural position, things should pick up for him.â†µ
In the meantime, continue to ignore Andre Berto, since few of us really know who that guy is.
