Bird in a landslide. Ortiz is just getting started and has a long way to go.

Understood, Mr. Bismark. I'm sure all of those other, "special" things that Carrick does are worth the 18 million. Now, if you could remind me, what are those again?

That's a ton of money to pay for two goals and six assists. That Van Nistelrooy money must've been burning a hole in Sir Alex's pocket.

Seconding kyrilmitch_76's first paragraph. I can't believe this article was printed. Really, it's not much of a player-to-player comparison when you have to qualify the present-day Team USA player's summary with stuff like: "He doesn't quite have Ewing's offensive moves..." (well then, he ain't Ewing, is he?) "...not as good a defender as Stockton... but has the same mindset" (I play with Rec League players that have Stockton's mindset...For whatever the fuck that's worth...) That said, give a couple of these guys 10 years and the comparisons *might* be valid. I'm never buying Stoudamire as Barkley or Joe Johnson as Bird (give me a fucking break), but Wade could become Jordon and LeBron could evolve into Magic (but there's a long way to go in both of those cases). Unlikely at best though.

In other news, the Minuteman Project is outraged and heading to Miller Park...
