Sneaky. Sly. Smart. All of these words could be used to describe Cory Burell after the mastermind move he pulled off in the weeks leading up to Skeeson XII. And I don’t think anyone saw it coming, which is the greatest part of the whole deal.
Signing Stat Boy (out of retirement) and Scooter (probably the most sought-after Free Agent of this generation) to his squad has to go down as one of the greatest management moves since the Miami Heat convinced Lebron (gross) to come down and play with D Wade.
But the questions are out there now. Did Cory manipulate and manage this thing perfectly or did he bribe and pay these superstars to sign on the dotted line? We may never know the truth, but we will be able to tell pretty quick whether this team is destined for greatness, or if they’ll be unable to roll well together and become the butt of every horrible (horrible!) Jay Leno monologue joke.
