    Lets get right to the part of this thread dedicated to the speculation and facts regarding anything news worthy around the league. Heres my Top 3. Came back expecting a busy weekend of talk but of course the NCAA games took over the column/news space....but here we go

    #3.FATHER BULL COMING::UHON TO MOVE ON??? Raptors forward Donyell Marshall will be a popular target this summer in free agency, in large part because teams figure he’ll be willing to accept a deal for the midlevel exception of $4.9 million. That would make him a candidate to join just about any team in the league. The first time the Bulls visited Toronto in February, Marshall said he would be interested in rejoining his former team because his fiancee and four children still live in the Chicago suburbs. That’s an intriguing scenario for the Bulls: adding a veteran power forward who can be a reliable scoring threat thanks to his 3-point skills.The question here is whether the Bulls will be willing to use the full midlevel exception this summer on Marshall or anyone. If they did sign a free agent with the midlevel, they’d put themselves at risk of losing rookie point guard Chris Duhon. Since Duhon was a second-round draft pick the Bulls weren’t sure they’d keep, he signed a one-year, non-guaranteed contract. Duhon has gone on to start 59 consecutive games, and he put his value on display last week as the Bulls went 3-0 with Kirk Hinrich sidelined by a hamstring strain. Duhon will be a restricted free agent this summer, and the Bulls are over the salary cap. But they are allowed to use any part of the midlevel exception to re-sign the former Duke point guard. If the Bulls decided to use the midlevel on another free agent, their options for Duhon would dwindle to the $1.6 million exception or a 20 percent raise above the minimum salary, which would be about $930,000 for a second-year player. Under that scenario, if Duhon signed an offer sheet worth $1.61 million from another team, the Bulls would be unable to match it. Of course, some of these rules could change when a new collective bargaining agreement is reached before the start of next season. But the situation suggests that the Bulls would keep the midlevel exception available and set their sights on a tall guard in free agency. Utah’s Raja Bell is the most obvious candidate among unrestricted free agents, and he makes a relatively modest $1.32 million this season. The Bulls should be able to re-sign free agent power forward Othella Harrington without touching any of their exceptions. They are allowed to give Harrington a 20 percent raise from this season’s $3.15 million salary. And if they don’t spend too much this summer, the Bulls could be $10 million below the cap in 2006. There is little question the Bulls consider Duhon worth keeping. His defense and court sense have been outstanding this year. If he can become a more consistent shooter, he’ll be earning NBA minutes for years to come. Consider this statistic: When Duhon hits 2 or more 3-point shots in a game, the Bulls’ record is 15-6...not going to spend too much time on this subject but i believe its very possible Duhon and Marshall will BOTH be Bulls next year. The salary issue isnt too had to get around especially when they put the idea in Duhons head of they gave him the chance to play and make a name for himself, and the cap is easy to get around if he signs a two year deal etc etc etc...

    #2.NEW MAGIC:::WHAT POSITION??? The Orlando Magic are not only playing for a postseason spot, but many of them could be playing for a roster spot next season.You even could make the argument that -- given the slumping Magic are not a contender -- they are positioning themselves for the offseason as much as the postseason.Who'll stay? Who'll be traded? Who'll return in a different role?And who'll coach them if it's not Chris Jent?The front office will continue evaluating just what the Magic need this summer -- from the draft to free agency -- during the team's final 13 games.The Magic look set at two positions for a while.They'll have Grant Hill at small forward for -- at least contractually -- two more years, and rookie Dwight Howard at power forward for, hopefully, 15 years.The center position has been run by committee. The Magic need more scoring inside (but then who doesn't besides Miami and San Antonio?).Orlando will be in the market for a shooting guard after the trade of Cuttino Mobley and the injury to aging Doug Christie, but DeShawn Stevenson is having his say.Stevenson has been plugged into the starting job by Jent and has recorded 23- and 22-point games.Developments at the point-guard spot are curious. Steve Francis would have been included in the category of players with set positions -- joining Hill and Howard -- except it's difficult to tell if Francis has a set position.Is he a point guard or a shooting guard?Error-prone, Francis was moved by Johnny Davis from point guard to shooting guard for the first time in his six-year career. Rookie Jameer Nelson was inserted as the starting point guard and the move had its merits.Either way, the experience has been beneficial for Nelson. But if Jent does not return, what will the new coach do with Francis? And if Francis is reinserted at shooting guard, do the Magic believe Jameer can put a full-Nelson on the point-guard job? Or do they need another point guard to start?The Magic also have some other things to figure out besides where they stand in the playoff chase....That's a tough question for a coach to answer dont you think? PG or SG for Steve Francis. But i think the relitevely easy answer is PG. Just because hes a "veteran" of that position. I mean its just like moving another shooting point guard like Marbury to SG. It just wont work. He's too small. If they can get a legit SG in there I think it will be fine. Nothing against DeShawn Stevenson or Cuttino Mobley, the only two guards hes ever really played with at the spot. I just think they should look around see whats out there and pick up that SG. and if they come to the conclusion that Francis should play the SG and they do play with a small back court, they have a lot of options on the market...Stoudamire, Van Exel, Anderson, Lue etc etc...

    #1.GET TO THE POINT LIKE STOUDAMIRE:::MIGHTY MOUSE TO BIG APPLE???Damon Stoudamire will tell you he has a history with Isiah Thomas, one that may be strong enough to lead to a reunion in New York next season with his former boss. Stoudamire, according to sources, is a free agent the Knicks will strongly consider this summer, even if Thomas selects a guard in the draft. Thomas wants to add quickness, experience and another ball handler to his backcourt. The addition of a player of Stoudamire's caliber would allow Stephon Marbury to play more minutes at shooting guard. Thomas has hinted that he wants to play a style similar to that of the Suns and SuperSonics, spreading the floor with three-point shooters and taking advantage of Marbury's ability to drive to the basket. Thomas also envisions having three players - Marbury, Jamal Crawford and possibly Stoudamire - who can all play both guard positions. "If that happens, it would be great," Stoudamire said late Saturday night. "I definitely think the beauty of playing that way is that you have three guards that can pass, dribble and shoot. Isiah is molding the team the way he did in Toronto and like the team he played for in Detroit. Isiah, Joe Dumars and Vinnie Johnson all complemented each other." The 5-10 Stoudamire, who scored 25 points in Portland's 103-96 victory over the Knicks on Saturday, long has been a favorite of Thomas, who drafted Stoudamire 12 years ago with the Raptors. Stoudamire, who will turn 32 in September, is not expected to re-sign with the Blazers this summer. The uncertainty surrounding Allan Houston's arthritic knee - the Knicks would prefer that the veteran guard retire - and Crawford's inconsistency give the Knicks reason to want to add a veteran player with Stoudamire's resume. "I've got some history with a lot of the guys that run the team in New York, Isiah, Brendan Suhr, and I even played with Herb (Williams) for (one game) in Toronto," Stoudamire said. "It's something me and my agent will definitely look at. At the end of the day it's something I will definitely listen to." Stoudamire's agent is Aaron Goodwin, who also represents Crawford as well as Vin Baker, whom the Knicks signed to a two-year, $7 million contract last summer. Baker was eventually traded to the Houston Rockets in the Maurice Taylor deal. Thomas has a good working relationship with Goodwin, but his friendships with Stoudamire and Goodwin may not mean much if and when the two sides begin negotiating. Stoudamire will earn $12.5 million this season and is prepared to take a significant pay cut this summer. How much of a cut is open for debate. The Knicks can offer Stoudamire their mid-level exception, which would be a deal starting at $5 million. However, Thomas may want to save that chip for a younger player who can become a starter. The Knicks could get Stoudamire for a deal starting at $2 million but Stoudamire figures to draw interest from several teams. "I don't want to get too far ahead of myself but anything is possible," Stoudamire said of signing for a reduced amount. "Always things you can do to get it done. I'm just looking forward to free agency. I haven't been free for a long time."...Mid level exception on another guard? If we could get him for that 2 mill deal. Id say 100% pull that trigger. but of course our first priority is the C-F spot. I think Isiah is heading in the right direction though. We just have a lot of SMART thinking to do in the offseason. Draft 3 good players (said it since day one, Johan Petro, Channing Frye, BJ Elder). Resign Ariza. Then the rest is where the SMART shopping/dealing really begins...I think with this roster (C Johan Petro, C-F Channing Frye, C-F Kurt Thomas, F Mike Sweetney, F Malik Rose, F Mo Taylor, F Jerome Williams, F Tim Thomas, F Trevor Ariza, G Jamal Crawford, G Allan Houston, G Stephon Marbury, G Penny Hardaway, G BJ Elder)...we have a good up down roster..but we should still move some players around trade wise (Kurt Thomas, Penny Hardaway, Mo Taylor) just to see if we can still upgrade the C...and then see what we can do with the G position....Long way to say first comes first..

    Lets get right to the part of this thread dedicated to the speculation and facts regarding anything news worthy around the league. Heres my Top 3. Came back expecting a busy weekend of talk but of course the NCAA games took over the column/news space....but here we go

    #5.HIGH HOPES::UMB & DUMBERContrary to a report in the Daily Ruse, Thomas made no move to acquire Antoine Walker the last couple of months prior to the Feb. 24 trade deadline. Nor should/will he waste time come summer trying to recruit the Celtics' reformed rising free agent. Representative Mark Bartelstein doesn't even have to play his cards right to secure a four-year contract for his client (currently earning $14.625 million) in the affluent hood of $8M-to-9M per, above and beyond the Knicks' mid-level means. Correspondingly, I'm tempted to disparage the reporter's latest "intelligence" regarding Thomas' purported interested in romancing Damon Stoudamire with that same $5M exception, except that Isiah and his pet Raptor still have a strong thing for each other after all these years.Moreover, why wouldn't James Dolan's core-less franchise want to build on its feature as being the NBA's only member to exceed the salary cap on backcourt contracts alone? Allan Houston is on next season's books for $19.125M, Stephon Marbury $16.453M, Penny Hardaway $15.75M and Jamal Crawford $6.48M; Stoudamire would be an extra $5M. Oh, I forgot, Thomas intends to trade the "coveted" closeout contracts of Hardaway, Maurice Taylor and Tim Thomas and thus salvage some future cap flexibility. Somehow I suspect the Knicks will be compelled to hold on to those precious possessions for one last season, thus clear some room without anyone's help. In case you haven't already caught on to the above resource, stay tuned for additional "inside information" in the upcoming weeks and months: Utilizing the mid-level and ($1.6M) veteran exceptions, as well as sign-and-trade offers, Thomas also plans to pursue Ray Allen, Zydrunas Ilgauskas, Donyell Marshall, Michael Redd, Joe Johnson, Larry Hughes, Eddy Curry, Tyson Chandler, Chris Duhon, Zaza Pachulia, Kwame Brown, Vladimir Radmanovic, Bobby Simmons, Marko Jaric, Samuel Dalembert, Kyle Korver, Cutino Mobley, Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Udonis Haslem, Stromile Swift, Earl Watson, Bonzi Wells, Eddie Griffin, Latrell Sprewell, Raja Bell, Juan Dixon, Keith McLeod, Dan Gadzuric, Dan Dickau, Gerald Wallace, Reggie Evans, Jerome James, Flip Murray, Michael Ruffin and, of course, Eddie Robinson...I find all reporters that write on the Knicks rather dumb. As I do agree with some of the stuff they write they only look so far or over exaggerate the negatives. This idiot named every possible his feeble minded self could think of. He doesnt understand that we cant expect to much, but then again some fans need to realize that too. In no way shape or form are we going to be under the salary cap soon. or even later. Deal with it. It's not this idiots problem. And what happened has happened (Layden) you can only work on the future. furthemore work with what we have. Isiah is going to do that, and recognizes what we need and what we actually can obtain. He knows the importance of the draft. He knows how to draft. With three draft picks we can help our team. thats step one. evaluating trade possibilites is another. Seeing who actually would be interested in Mo Taylor, Penny Hardaway and most of all KURT THOMAS! but this loser only focuses on up coming expiring contracts (once again only focusing on our negative. With the 5 million exception we cant do much but in all actuallity we dont need to. 1 good player is fine! if we dont trade anybody and we let Butler, Jackson, Sundov "expire" and do take our 3 draft picks...we have a 14 man roster. leaving one spot open! So all I have to say is I hate articles not because I cant accept the Knicks negatives (believe me I do and thats why I want them to fail this season) but because they only focus on that, without stating both aspects of the situation....

    #4.NO CALIFORNIA LOVE:::ATKINS TAKES RAPE, I MEAN RIP AT KOBE???.The Lakers moved into damage-control mode Monday, with Chucky Atkins insisting he harbored no ill will toward Kobe Bryant, and Bryant insisting Atkins' critical comments were a non-issue, and Coach Frank Hamblen musing that a little controversy hasn't always been such a bad thing for the franchise.As the Lakers hovered in 10th place in the Western Conference, three losses from a team-record 11th consecutive defeat, there were attempts to repair the fractures of a splintering season a day after Atkins created one of the deepest fissures yet.Atkins, who critically referred to Bryant as the team's general manager on Sunday, blamed the media for distorting his words and said Bryant was a friend, denying the thrust of a conversation before Sunday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers that began with one reporter in front of Atkins' locker and grew loud enough to draw the attention of others."They wrote the wrong thing and they know what's up," Atkins said. "Instead of the beat writers around here saying what they really want to say and write what they really think, they want to use myself and Caron Butler and Lamar Odom to be a scapegoat for what they want to say about Kobe Bryant."Guys have been taking shots at Kobe Bryant all year. He hasn't broken, and he ain't going to be broken. My teammates, they know me. If I want to say something to them, I won't go through the media and say it. I'll go to them as a man. I don't hold my tongue to anybody."Atkins' tirade, vulgar at times, came a day after he responded to a reporter's question about what moves he would make during the off-season to improve the Lakers."I ain't the GM of this team," Atkins said Sunday. "Kobe's the GM of this team. Ask Kobe. You've been watching this [stuff] all year. You've been watching it, and I've been playing in it."Atkins has become gradually more irritated because Bryant has privately criticized him for faulty defense and because of the number of shots Bryant takes in the course of a game, team sources said.Bryant and Atkins talked briefly before Monday's practice, as the Lakers gathered to try to halt the second-longest losing streak in the franchise's 58-year history."We really didn't have to have much of a conversation," Bryant said. "He was pretty adamant about his feelings about what had happened, and people kind of taking it out of context or whatever. We're just letting it be. Everybody here, we all stick together. Maybe people are trying to divide us or pull us apart. We're not going to let that happen."When told that Atkins made the remarks and sounded sincere about them, Bryant said it was "something you've got to take up with him.""If you guys are here to try to create something or stir something up or come to me and try to get some type of reaction from me, you're not going to get any," he said. "We're all just sticking together and just coming ready to work tomorrow. We all just want to play basketball."We had a great practice today. Everybody played hard, everybody competed. We all encouraged one another, we got on one another, we had a great day of work."Bryant also touched briefly on the perception that he has acted as the team's general manager."I don't have to say anything on that issue," he said. "I trust [owner] Jerry Buss and [General Manager] Mitch Kupchak. I trust their track record. They've put together great teams in the past. All I want to do is come here and play basketball and have a good time with my teammates. That's all I want to do."Kupchak, who was in Indiana to scout a high-school all-star game, declined to comment.As if on cue, as if the season hadn't taken enough unexpected turns, Phil Jackson was upstairs at the team's headquarters as the Lakers denied any lingering problems.Jackson, who said this month it was "50-50" he'd come back and coach in the NBA, was having lunch with longtime girlfriend and Laker executive vice president Jeanie Buss, which he has done a number of times since returning late last month from a six-week vacation.Downstairs, on the practice court at Laker headquarters, Jackson's former assistant, Hamblen, acknowledged that the mounting losses had irked the players."Anything that's said in the paper nowadays is probably out of frustration," he said. "We've all got to hang in here together. Everybody's frustrated."Later, as questions about controversy began to wind down, Hamblen smiled slightly."Even when we won championships, we've had situations like this," he said. "Maybe it's a good thing."....Finally someone has grown some, granted its Chucky Atkins. Then again he did take it back, probably in fear of getting released by GM Kobe Bryant. If Odom and Butler stood up then there would be some effect. I dont like Kobe at all, i think hes unprofessional and is a drama queen. Shaq gone, Phil gone, Payton, Malone...these arent Johnny come latelys. Hes all about one thing himself, and when he fails he puts it off on somebody else. I guarantee you if Bryant was not there and you insert any team player at SG they would be a winning team and if not that atleast 500. Bryant is a great player dont get me wrong but he needs to let everyone do their jobs and realize he is NOT michael jordan. the triangle doesnt work anymore, and neither does the one man show. Then again I dont know whos more to blame here...Kobe Bryant or Jerry Buss for not having his own pair...

    #3.MCINNIS OUT:::WHAT A DICKAU??? .New Or leans- If the Cavaliers decide not to re-sign point guard Jeff McInnis this summer, the organization might consider replacing him with New Orleans' upcoming free agent guard Dan Dickau. Dickau will at least consider the Cavs. Of course I would," Dickau said. "They're an up-and-coming team and they have the best young player in the league. Playing alongside LeBron [James] would be a lot of fun because he's such an unselfish player. That would help me continue to grow as a player." Dickau is growing quickly after such a poor start to his NBA career. Before joining the Hornets, he played with the Atlanta Hawks, Portland Trail Blazers and Dallas Mavericks, averaging 3.0 points and 1.3 assists in 93 games. That has all changed since Dickau was traded to the Hornets in December. He's averaging 13.5 points and 4.7 assists. Dickau has led or tied for team game-scoring honors 16 times. Dickau has made such a huge turnaround that he is a candidate for Most Improved Player. Cavs rookie Luke Jackson is not surprised, although many in the league gave up on Dickau. "All he needed was a chance," said Jackson, who worked out with Dickau during summers in the Northwest. "He works hard and he puts in the time. His game speaks for itself because he can shoot and he's like a fly out on the court. He's hard to catch."...I just love when people have one good year (following three horrible ones) and get long term contracts after that. Doesnt that always work out for the best? haha I mean Dickau yes is getting good, and yes I believe in progression and second chances but who else is in New Orleans? Its easy to be a big fish in a small pond...but yea good for him, hope he gets the money and a lot of interest in the offseason yadda yadda Congradulations Dan Dickau...

    #2.KNICKS OFFSEASON:::CENTER OF ATTENTION??? Herb Williams said the center-less Knicks this summer "could definitely use a shotblocker, but when you do a wish list, that's what it is, a wish list." Isiah Thomas has said he's in the market for a center and athletic shooting guard such as Golden State free agent Jason Richardson, who faced them last night. Shotblockers are harder to come by. Utah 7-foot center Andrew Bogut, likely the top pick in the draft, isn't necessarily one....Jason Richardson is out of the question and thats a line of over optimism. But Herb has it right, a wish list is just that. Nothing more. You make your decisions on your needs, and just accept wishes as a undershadow. The thing I found interesting about that comment though was..."isnt necessarily one"...hmm is this foreshadowing the arrival of my boy Johan Petro???...mwhaha

    #1.APPEALING APPLE:::FROM LIL ITALY TO ZENTOWN???Charley Rosen, one of Phil Jackson's longtime friends, spent four days with the Zen Master in Los Angeles earlier this month, and swears Jackson is on the fence on whether to coach next season. It seems hard to believe Jackson would pass up a chance at a $12 million per year paycheck, but Rosen says Jackson "convinced him" it's true. Rosen said Jackson will still interview with teams such as the Knicks but may decide to pass. There will be many opportunities, including the moribund Lakers, whom the Knicks visit tonight; Cleveland; Dallas; Portland; Orlando; Minnesota; and possibly Seattle. "He doesn't know if he wants to coach or not," Rosen told The Post. "It's not yes. It's not no. He doesn't miss the game." Jackson needs one title to surpass Red Auerbach. "He is not at all interested in topping Auerbach," said Rosen. "Winning the 10th championship is not a driving thing. He's got enough money to live comfortably the rest of his life and he's making money doing lectures. "He's kind of removed from the NBA. He likes the idea of being responsible only for himself, of regaining his life, not having to worry about this guy having a hangnail." Rosen, Jackson's biographer, spent four days in L.A. working on a magazine piece on Jackson's adventures traveling to New Zealand, Australia and Tahiti. Rosen said the Knicks have "appeal" to Jackson. According to Rosen, Jackson thinks the Knicks are a couple of player moves away from being strong. "He'll interview and talk to people and see what they see," Rosen said. "That doesn't indicate he's interested in them or in coaching."...Sick of talking about this. I hope he goes back to LA with Kobe. Drama queens, intentions hogs, flashy people fit together...hows the triangle doing in LA at the moment??..

    alright i just posted the new edition 16 the other day but some news has come to my attention regarding the Knicks. So instead of re-writing or posting a new article I thought id use this section real quick...

    RuMoRs

    1. Kurt Thomas is thinking about forcing a trade this offseason, he said in regards to if he wanted to return..im going to go home and think about it...

    ...sorry to say Kurt, I dont think you need to force a trade buddy, it seems Isiah has been trying to look for the right trade since he got here for you (aka Drew Gooden)

    2. Zydrunas Iglauskas and the Cleveland Cavaliers are not even close to coming to terms for a new contract.

    ...A while ago reports said he wanted a short contract and not very long term because he wants to leave when he can still walk on his own two feet. It seems now the Cav's mite not even be in the running for the 7'3 Center. At a press conference the other day he wore a New York Yankees hat...New York by the way is where hes in the midst of buying a home... ...sign and trade? maybe. mid level exception? possible. James & Iglauskas for Kurt Thomas, Tim Thomas and Jamal Crawford? we can all dream haha

    3. Isiah is going to pursue making a serious pitch to Phil Jackson this weekend..

    ..he will continue to do this (hopefully to no evail) this really isnt the big news...Isiah is going to be in Europe while he does it..why you ask? possibly scouting his first round draft picks?? cough:John Petro:cough? <---thats my petro smiley haha

    allllriight thats it for now, read TODAY IN NBA on the main page, leave comments if you will. and plllllllllllease someone answer the trivia question so i can move on to the next...place your answers below...ITS QUITE EASy!!!!!
