It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
Slapping five and giving “propers” has turned into an absolute given following every foul shot in NBA and college basketball games. Teammates are all about letting the foul shooter know how proud of them they are because they have made (or even missed) a 15 foot shot without any defenders in their face.
A strange twist to free throw congratulations has come about in recent seasons though. Foul shooters have started seeking out propers from their teammates. It’s come to the point where the league should outlaw it. It’s similar to a hitter in baseball stepping out of the box to adjust his batting gloves after every pitch.
If the league doesn’t want to completely outlaw it, it could preach for players to follow Thomas Robinson’s lead. The Sacramento rookie forward, the fifth overall pick 2012 NBA Draft, totally ignored the extension of propers from teammate Alex Young.

Here we go again. Another move to placate a fan base that "we are trying" to win. Another player that doesn't really fit a great need (although I guess you can say Brooks has proven production?) but is a veteran that has been part of a winning organization at one point in his career. Or something.
Rinse. Wash. Repeat.
That's my main gripe. This is not about Aaron...
The Kings have signed Aaron Brooks to a two-year, $6.6 million deal.
According to Marc Stein, the Kings have acquired James Johnson of the Toronto Raptors for a future 2nd round pick. Sam Amick has confirmed it's a 2nd round pick in 2014.
Look for that one to be finalized Monday. Kings to add Johnson on last-year deal for their frontcourt rotation. Raps to shed a $2.8M salary
