Looks like Elgin Baylor is the NBA executive of the year.

Not to say he didn't deserve it, but it's quite a turnaround from his past years of futility.



"Speaking of Thomases, I loved your recent Atrocious GM Summit column, although I think that you flatter Isiah Thomas far too much by suggesting that he is merely one of a number of atrocious GMs. The truth is that Rob Babcock and Billy King are Einstein next to him. The mess he is creating right now in New York will be studied by business school students 50 years from now alongside Enron and pets.com."

I'm personally waiting to see if he can do a repeat performance. If the Clippers get this far, but lose Sam Cassell (THE single reason for the Clippers' turnaround) in the offseason, all these good feelings could be for naught.

But that move that got Cassell out here in the first place was surprisingly well-played, because the outcry from Clippers fans was deafening when they found out Marko Jaric was going to Minnesota. Elgin Baylor deserves this honor for that trade alone.

Yes, the Clippers absolutely must re-sign Cassell in the offseason, and Cassell must try and stay reasonable, because no one wants to pay $12 million for someone who will turn 37 during next season. (Jeez, has it been that long since Cassell was a fresh-faced young kid who helped the Rockets win back-to-back NBA Championships?)

When they sign Cassell, Cassell must then hold true to his word and continue to be a mentor to Shaun Livingston, because he's the Clippers' point guard of the future. In fact he may even be good enough to become the permanent starter before Cassell's two years are up, and Cassell must show he's a professional and be able to handle that.

Let's see if Cassell learned anything from the sad end of his tenure in Minnesota.

I have to start my tradition a day early because I'll be on the road tomorrow preparing to run my first marathon. Tomorrow marks the beginning of NCAA basketball and the spectacle of "Midnight" Madness celebrations around the nation.
