Sports blog, SimonOnSports, believes that NBA agent Marc Cornstein must be on crack. It may not be crack, but it must be something. Cornstein, a sports agent at Pinnacle Management, represents 3 players taken in the 2007 NBA Draft: Petteri Koponen, Stanko Barac, and Milovan Rakovic [The 2007 NBA Sports Agent Draft]. None of them were drafted by the Orlando Magic, and something tells me that none of them will be playing for the Magic any time soon.
SimonOnSports calls what Cornstein recently committed a “rant”. I prefer to name it a tirade. I am not sure if Marc Cornstein was listening for too long to Sean Kingston’s Beautiful Girl, but something has him wanting to commit suicide in the eyes of the Orlando Magic. If you were not aware, Cornstein is the agent for Darko Milicic. Darko’s relationship with the Magic has ended up being short-term, and now it seems like Cornstein’s relationship is going to follow suit.
Marc Cornstein was upset that the Magic retracted a qualifying offer on Milicic, and decided to start calling out GM, Otis Smith. He called Smith a liar and said that the dealings with Smith were deceitful, disrespectful, and a disgrace (and went down as an alliteration genius in the process). [Milicic’s agent blasts team] There are many problems with this. The Magic still would like to keep Milicic, and Cornstein continues to say that they have no chance while calling out one of the most important persons in the front office of a professional team. Will other teams hesitate to deal with Cornstein in the future if this is how he reacts when he does not get his way?
