Even the Redhawks??
Miami Heat Florida
CAVS TRADE WIGGINS/JAMES FOR LOVE!
But seriously, guys, don't trade Wiggy. Love can come around on his own next year.
EDIT: great simulposting,
So what jersey number will Lebron wear? 6? 23? Or something else?
'i hope to god that its not the 6. Yeah he did that for the USA but way too many Miami memories.
23 is his old number but also Jordan's. So we will see.
1) I LOVE that guy in the gif there...
Always with the signs...
Is he a schmuck? Sure, but I don't care; also, how I left Sign Guy off my courtside regulars list/count for '13-'14 was a terrible oversight. It won't happen again.
And in looking for Sign Guy pictures, I came across this:
Their identities revealed!
I don't fully know why this sort-of-thing makes me so happy.
2) News concerning the Lakers point guard situation:
Now if he does indeed get re-signed after all that, then it's no big deal... however, should he not, then all of a sudden the focus on Lin intensifies, because who else is going to be the top option to run the point? 400-year old Steve Nash? Jordan Clarkson? An inflatable balloon in the likeness of Jerry West?
3) It's been 6 days since Gasol announced that he's heading to Chicago, and yet...
The Boozer & Bazemore (who signed with Atlanta last week) inclusion there makes it all the more ridiculous & funny.
4) [link=[url]http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/basketball/knicks/phil-jackson-details-talks-lakers-unraveled-autobiography-update-article-1.1869987]Phil[/url] Jackson with new insights on the Lakers, specifically Howard-D'Antoni, Jerry Buss' final days[/link]
The most salient point in my humble opinion:
"Dr. Buss left detailed instructions about how he wanted his children to run the Lakers after he was gone. He designated Jeanie to be in charge of business operations, Jimmy to oversee basketball personnel, and their older brother, Johnny, to have a high-level advisory role. After the funeral, however, Jimmy and Johnny were surprised to learn that Dr. Buss had named Jeanie as the Lakers’ voting member on the NBA’s board of governors. That decision essentially gave Jeanie final responsibility for the Lakers franchise."
Although he goes on to say that Jeanie & Fredo Jimmy talked things out to clarify their roles, it's quite clear that a defining leadership gap has been left since Jerry Buss' death. Though some of the issues concerning important matters (ie: free agency pushes) weren't the fault of the powers-to-be, there's still an undeniable pall of awkwardness about it all. Even with the obvious uncertainty of how this upcoming season will go, there's no denying that a lot of the shine has dimmed off the Lakers. It makes me think of a passage [link=[url]http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=simmons/100505]from[/url] this 2010 Simmons article[/link]:
I love the Lance signing for the Hornets. 3/27 with a team option for the third year is a way better deal than the max they threw at Hayward, or the even the money Parsons is getting. I think they are a playoff lock, and as you said, a threat for the top four.
Not sure if it was mentioned and I missed it, but my favorite part of LeBron going back to Cleveland is the Heat still owe the Cavs a first round pick from LeBron joining them. Awesome.
Andrew Bynum considering sitting out next season to rehab knees.
And suddenly whatever team he plays for gets a lot better.
If rumors are correct that Minnesota is turning down an offer of Wiggins, Bennet, and a #1, I say Cleveland should end negotiations. Call Portland and offer that for Aldridge. Or, better yet, keep Wiggins and build for a Spurs-like window of contention.
i'd say keep both and go for the long haul personally, but what do i know.
Hoping those rumors are coming from Minnesota in the first place to drive up the price for the Warriors. Keep Maple Jordan!
So this happened to me on Twitter today:
Yes, that Corey Maggette.
Bulls looking into getting Kevin Love.
Latest Cavs transaction truly puts the "ass" in trade assets.
Bulls offering Gibson, Mirotic and McDermott apparently for Love. depletes our depth a bit, and the Bulls board i visit are split (maybe a tad more against) but i think that's a pretty fair trade for both, and you take it. stars rule in this league. Rose, Love and Noah is a nice 3 and we retain Butler to lock down LeBron. plus i think if Love lands on the Cavs, then there's no way Bulls get out of the East anyway.
is it better than Wiggins, Bennett and another first? Wiggins is flashy but Mirotic and McDermott are both potential top 5 picks in any other draft, and Gibson gives you defence and rebounding straight away.
RETIRE RAY ALLEN
JUST ****ING RETIRE
Don't mind this signing at all.
Byran Scott has (finally) been officially offered the Lakers HC job.
I'm shocked the Bucks turned down the Knicks offer of Iman Shumpert, Tim Hardaway Jr, and the corpse expiring contract of Amar'e Stoudemire for Kevin Love. Shocked, I tell ya.
Saunders on that phone call must have been like, "LMFAO Phil!! Thanks, I really needed a good laugh today!"
Welcome home, Byron.
lebron is going back to wearing 23.
