Just to give you an idea of what it takes to win the Pritch Slap Award, here are some highlights from the man himself:
3. In the 2008 NBA Draft Kevin Pritchard executed a string of trades that landed the Blazers with Nicolas Batum… Pritch Slapped!
2. In the 2006 NBA Draft Pritchard traded Tyrus Thomas (our #4 pick) and Viktor Khryapa to the Chicago Bulls for Lamarcus LaMarcus Aldridge (their #2 pick). Not only did Pritchard bring Lamarcus LaMarcus to Portland, where LMA is now the man, Pritch had the foresight to keep Aldridge off the Bulls who drafted Derrick Rose two years later… Chicago… Pritch Slapped!!
1. Oh, and that very same draft, Pritchard traded Randy Foye and cash to Minnesota for future NBA all-star and Rookie of the Year, Brandon Roy… Minnesota and the rest of the NBA… Pritch Slapped!
