This took me about 10 minutes to sift through the first few paragraphs of the story to make sure I got everything right. ESPN is calling this the largest single player transaction in NBA history:

Miami gets:
Antoine Walker
Jason Williams
James Posey
Andre Emmett
Roberto Duenas

Boston gets:
Curtis Borchardt
Qyntel Woods
Albert Miralles
Two second-round draft picks from Miami
Straight Cash, Homey

Memphis gets:
Eddie Jones
Raul Lopez

Utah gets:
Greg Ostertag

New Orleans gets:
Rasual Butler
Kirk Snyder

It's a lot of pieces for Miami at one time, but it's obvious they felt they needed something better at the point after Damon Jones and Dooling both folded in Game 7 and more offensive punch that they didn't have with Shaq and Wade hobbled late in the playoffs, and Miami seems to have a lot of faith that The Big Motivator can keep the locker room in check.

This is either the road to a title or the road to implosion...there is no middle ground.

Thanks for putting this together. I read through the story, but the more I tried to figure out who was going where, the more my head would throb and pound. In short, I was too lazy to set pencil to paper.

It's always amused me that a couple minutes into it, even the reporters start laughing.  As if they're aware of the rant's instant meme status.
