Free agent Sebastian Telfair recently told CBS Sports’ Ben Golliver that he hoped to sign with a championship contender when and it the NBA lockout concludes, to which Golliver inquired, what might the Coney Island product bring to a club with title aspirations? “I bring myself. I bring Sebastian Telfair,” was the not-at-all pretentious answer.
The 13th overall pick in the 2004 draft might also have added, “I bring a guy who can’t properly defend against a woman.” As Ball Don’t Lie’s Kelly Dwyer points out, the woman in question, New York Liberty PG Cappie Poindexter is a 4-time WNBA All-Star, so it’s not as though Telfair just got lit up by Michelle Bachman. However, given that he’s lobbying for a job, perhaps prospective NBA employers might wanna give Poindexter equal if not greater consideration?
