Gone Fishin’
No offense, Kenny, but NBA players aren't lining up to join you on vacation ... Every spring, TNT's Kenny Smith breaks out the rod and reel and his sign reading: Gone Fishin'.

All but the Spurs, Jazz, Pistons and Cavs have joined the likes of the Atlanta Hawks, New York Knicks and Seattle SuperSonics, among other NBA types and celebrities for this year's trip.

Every time a team gets eliminated from the Playoffs, a few more invites are sent for the "Gone Fishin'" trip. See who's on vacation this year after stumbling in the 2007 NBA Playoffs and who joined Kenny in 2006 and 2005.
