American Idol . Stewart Is No Idol

American Idol's latest victim is Ace.The idol hopefuls sang selection from Rod Stewart' s American Songbook and the show was a hit. They all performed well. The best of Rod Stewart brought out the best in them.

This is not exactly true with former Raptor , Yogi Stewart , remember him ? His was an interesting story. Yogi was once a ballboy for the Sacramento Kings. He was heralded as one of the promising talents in the Raptors line up and was signed to a multi million contract by Glen Grunwald.
He showed some promise but was really overpowered by bigger opponents . He played behind Charles Oakley, Kevin Willis, and others in the Raptors rotation depending on whether he was subbing for the center or power forward positions.
I guess you can count this as one of Glen's mistakes. That is called paying for ' potential ' . Never really panned out . Glen who is now a Canadian citizen since 1999, runs the Toronto Board Of Trade as President and CEO . He is a lawyer and an MBA degree holder.
Back to Yogi. After his Raptors stint , he joined the Cavaliers via the Lamond Murray trade where he reprished his role as a benchwarmer . Then , Yogi was moved to Boston as part of the Ricky Davis deal .

After that, I don't know what happened to Yogi. Maybe he went back to Sacramento Kings where he was their first round pick or to Hanna Barbera to join Yogi Bear.

Grunwald must be making a lot of money from his present job. He does'nt need the NBA. Too bad Glen is one intelligent and decent GM .

Glen Grunwald will be back in the NBA. Look for him as future NBA Head Office Executive when Stern retires or before that !
