Brooklyn is finalizing a sign-and-trade deal with the Los Angeles Clippers for Reggie Evans, league sources tell Y! Sports
our front office needs to stop sitting on their a$$, daydreaming about Nash sure he would be nice to have but it ain't end of the world... it feels like everyone is making moves Minus us.
Brooklyn is instantly on same level as Miami, and the Knicks are on outside looking in.
I hear a vacuum and it's sucking the fans away from Garden.
Prediction: they tear Garden down within 10 years and Knicks are moved to Kansas.
Hahahahaha, nah, I don't really think the prediction will come through, but it's not going to be pretty for Fat Dolan.
That's a disgusting line-up. The rebounding is locked up between Wallace and DHowwww and Wallace is a good 1 on 1 defender, he'll shut them down man down hands down.
Plus they got the Bosnian we were talking about here, the Teletovic guy. If he comes in, drops a couple treys off the bench for them, that's ridiculous.
At the least they are equal to Miami, but you can easily make a case that they are stronger. DHowwww on Nets makes them my personal favorite for the next championship.
For next year, I am not assuming that we are going to be contenders, as Melo is on the team. It's the same on here each and every year. During offseason we talk ourselfs into that role, next come the season previews, evertybody gets agitated because we are ranked so low, in the end they turn out to be correct.
The point that New York is such a big market is our weakest point: They make enough money with us not winning. So the NBA, shoe companies etc. cash the NY money and some extra in a smaller market by turning them into championship calibre teams (e.g. OKC).
Melo is the ideal player for that: He arouses enough emotions to sell shoes but it's clear to anybody vaguely familiar with the game of basketball that with his style he is not going to be a real threat.
We can tweak our line up as much as we want, we are not going to win it all. We will stay in the race for the playoffs, we might even advance into the second round in order to keep people's hopes alive but in the end a smaller (not necessarily small) market team will win it all.
@RicBucher: As source indicated earlier, Kidd won't join Deron with Nets. Deciding between Mavs and Knicks
Please please please knicks
@DeronWilliams made a tough decision today...
How do you guys feel about this?
Housekeeping note: Rockets swingman Courtney Lee is now an unrestricted free agent after Rockets withdraw his qualifying offer
Marc Stein @ESPNSteinLine
Mavs' PG priorities from here, sources say, are Nash and Jeremy Lin and re-signing J-Kidd. Team has not yet decided if it'll pursue Dragic
Can Pelister @Can_SB
