La Bomba T-Shirts

Not speaking a lick of Spanish, I'll not be much help concerning the Bomba Navarro site, which is loosely translated as "Player Who Will Never Ever Suit Up For the Washington Wizards." La Bomba, as you're no doubt aware, is Juan Carlos Navarro, the Barcelona guard whose rights the Wizards retain, and who makes for great stories during dull moments of the Wiz season but whose seven-figure buyout means there's a greater chance Brendan Haywood will tattoo a stanza from "More Than An Athlete" on his chest than Navarro will wear Wiz colors next fall.

If I understood how much these cost, I would order 12.

But that doesn't mean you shouldn't be wearing La Bomba colors. I see no reason why these shouldn't become as common as Agent Zero shirts in the VC next season. Well, unless the Wizznutzz come out with Oleksiy Pecherov "I Must Beet You" shirts. Get it? Like, borscht?

Speaking of Pecherov, whom Ernie Grunfeld says will be on the Wiz roster next fall, here's his player page from the BC Kyiv site. And here's a picture of him falling over. Kyiv, of course, won the Ukraine Cup this year, although our boy was not mentioned in the game story. But he did have a big game in a recent Superleague semifinal win over Khimik Yuzhniy, notching 20 points on 7 of 10 shooting. Game 2 of the series is Friday. Good seats still available.

pecherov, la bomba, vermeeken (2nd round last year), songalia.... EG needs only to draft 1 foreign player and we've got a worldly 5 man squad!

Pech could use some better lighting.

I suppose there are rules against the club giving la Bomba a seven figure "loan" in addition to the $500k they can contribute towards his buyout.

What if a player wanted to loan money to another player for such a thing?

Just trying to help our boy out...

There is currently a poll on the website to see which team the fans would like to see La Bomba play for next year... and the Wizards are on the list. We only need 300 votes or so to put the Wiz at the top of the list... so get voting.

Don't be intimidated by the spanish, just make sure you click the button than says Washington Wizards (voting on the right hand side)

Dan with all your blogging internets connections, you should be able to make this happen.

Glad to see the La Bomba site unearthed again and given its proper due. Steinz, does this mean you have been trolling through old posts on the Daily Bacon?!?
