First of all, why the hell are we still talking about this? I feel a little dirty posting this, but I couldn't resist the opportunity for us all to make jokez and have some laffz. So, if you haven't heard, Larry Hughes feels slighted by Mike D'Antoni's insistence on keeping a short rotation, particularly the part about it not including him.
