Yeah, I'd do that deal fast and not look back. Z Bo is a load.

Yea I'd do it and run. Our starters would be tough to score on while we would still have that nice scoring punch off the bench.

I think its a realistic. Memphis seems like they want to compete while unload salary. They could still make the playoffs this year with:

Conley/Bayless
Ellis/Ellington
Gay/Poindexter/Harris
Speights/Arthur
Gasol/Dalembert

They would then potentially have Ellis coming off the books, or flip him again in another trade and maximize future assets.

LOLakers. Love it.

Just think. If Kobe were a worse leader, this team would be even more than 4 games under .500. Lucky for them he's the ultimate leader!

But in all seriousness, he needs more help. He may have one top 5 player in Howard, but he needs at least another top 5 player if they are going to be a legitimate .500 team. One top 5 player in Howard along with two top 20 type players in Nash and Gasol isn't enough.

Kebo can't do it all on his own.

They're not tanking. They're gonna win a title before Lebron does, remember?

Knee, quad, pelvis, WHATEVER DETAILS OKAY.

They were dumb to hold onto him as long as they have.

On the Raps rumor of Calderone+Davis for Gay, we should see if they'd give us that package for Ellis and then flip Davis to OKC for Reggie Jackson.

I know nothing about Baynes, but I'm always interested in who the Spurs pick up. They just seem to routinely do a much better personnel job than most teams.

Wanted to put this somewhere in case I forget. When the Bucks play the Knicks, can we get Sector 8 or whatever they call themselves to sing "It's a honey of an O. It's Honey Nut Cheerios!" when Melo is at the line?
