It’s painful to say, a tough thing to wrap my head around.
I’m never going to think about Kyle Korver again.
Today, the Sixers traded Korver to the Utah Jazz for some dude named Giricek (who recently got into a verbal disagreement with Jazz coach Jerry Sloan) and a 1st Round pick. Giricek is averaging a mammoth 4 points a game this season. But wait, his career average is 9. So, it could get maybe get better.
So goodbye Kyle, one of the defacto faces of this current Sixers’ squad. If you thought Andre Iguadala was bummed by Allen Iverson getting traded away last year around this time, one can only imagine poor Andre curled up in the fetal position now, wondering what the hell he did to deserve such a fate.
Korver was the main deep threat for the Sixers and set the record for 3 pointers in a season with 226 in 2004-5. Korver gained national attention when he led tiny Creighton University deep in the NCAA tourney a few years ago. That was the first time I ever thought about Korver, him joining the Sixers was the other.
Well I can honestly I’ll never think about Korver again, one of those somewhat average players who you only know because they play for your team.
Kind of like Geoff Jenkins.
