If an NBA player signed a contract in a forest would ESPN still cover it?

Yahoo NBA blogger J.E. Skeets has come up with what Yahoo refers to as an "All-Boredom Team", which includes Allen "Practice" Iverson and Ricky "I'm Too Sexy for Minnesota" Rubio. The group is singled out for on-court performance, but for the constant stream of non-news concerning their failure to sign with one team or another.
Granted, being named boring for the tediousness of contract negotiations is better than being called boring for on the court performance. Though honestly most of this group isn't quite marquee level in the first place. Iverson's story is probably the biggest, since both his on-and-off court performances have been sports radio fodder for the past ten-plus years. Minnesota T-Wolves' draftee Rubio's still unsigned status is even less interesting than the non-drama that is the San Francisco 49ers-Michael Crabtree eye-roller.
Rubio and Iverson's contract status might just get interesting by the time the NBA season starts. For now...hey how long 'till the football season kickoff is it?
