The Story of LB

New, comments

With today's heroics by Leandro Barbosa, I had the good fortune of being notified of a GREAT article on the Brazilian Blur and his brother over on Hoops Addict.  Well, I should rephrase that a bit.  It's not so much about Leandro and his brother as a story about where they grew up and where they trained for basketball - along with a 10 minute video about it all.  I haven't watched the entire video yet (the Nuggets/Spurs game is about to start) but from what I have seen of it, it's pretty good.

I only have one problem with the article.  There is NO WAY the Suns ever trade LB (see the final paragraph).  Sure I know the guy was joking when he said it but it still made my stomach clench just a bit when I read it.  I can't see an LB trade happening at least for the next 4-5 years and possibly never.  Leandro is one of those "Suns for life" guys.  I would imagine even if they did trade him toward the end of his career he would still end up back in Phoenix to retire here.  That's just his way.

Go check out the article and video and let me know what you think.
