La Bomba

Not only is Spanish guard Juan Carlos Navarro leaving Winterthur FC Barcelona to join the Washington Wizards, but he seems to have a well-entrenched nickname in Spain “Bomba Navarro,” as seen on his official website, BombaNavarro.com, available in both Catalan and Castellano dialects (no English, sorry).

The inefficiency of the NBA personnel market is always a marvel to behold. The three point specialist is a type whose value varies substantially from situation to situation and while if Navarro works out that’ll of course be good for DC, you’d hardly put the Wizards on the list of the top five teams who could really use a three point specialist. Someplace like Cleveland, Houston, or Utah (where they always seem to be on the lookout for white guys in general) would make a lot more sense.
