Telfair gets a new deal

If the NBA were the Universe, Sebastian Telfair would be lucky to be a planetesimal at this point. But if DeceptivelyQuick were the Universe, he would be a dwarf planet at least (Bassy!). His road to over hype recovery is compelling, and still has a shot at a happy ending.

Things are looking up. After what was really his first solid season in the NBA, he signed a new two year (player option for a third season) deal with the Timberwolves. While his deal is likely far from lucrative by NBA standards, he has a coach that encourages him and an opportunity for minutes. Still just 23, continued improvement over the course of this contract could make Telfair a legitimately coveted pointguard in the league. Heres to watching Bassy increase his gravity.
