Well, in Melo's case it didn't help his cholesterol and it certainly didn't lower the risk of an heart attack.

Can't believe the Rockets are 21-14 and the Golden State Warriors are 22-11. What the hell man.

via the John Wall is Fat thread on the gb: http://forums.realgm.com/boards/viewtopic.php?p=34247118#p34247118

Wizards coach Randy Wittman confirmed that Wall has gained "about 6-7 pounds more than what he was prior to the injury" and "is not where he should be" conditioning-wise. However, Wittman doesn't seem too concerned about it. "If you broke you hand, you know, then we should be a little concerned with where his conditioning is at. You can go out and run on the beach, you can run on the floor.

Sounds a little bit like one but if it was it wasn't a good one.

So it looks like the Kings might be headed to Seattle. I'm glad for the Seattle fans but that really sucks for Kings fans. I always hate to see the smaller market teams have to move. The crappy owners get their money and the fans get screwed.

Hello Seattle!

Adrian Wojnarowski ‏@WojYahooNBA

The Maloofs are finalizing an agreement to sell the Sacramento Kings to the Hansen-Ballmer led Seattle group, sources tell Yahoo! Sports. The deal will sell the Kings for approximately $500 million, with the Seattle group seeking relocation to Key Arena for the 2013-'14 season. The Seattle group's plans, with support of the NBA, is to play two seasons in Key Arena before moving into a new Seattle arena, sources say. No agreement signed, but one source describes deal as "1st and goal at 1." Maloofs history of changing course late still makes many uneasy. The Maloofs are expected to keep an extremely small percentage of team, but will have no real input or say in franchise, sources say.


Might this be the time to re-draw division lines?

Thinking about it more, I think realignment would be a MUST now because Seattle and Portland would be in two different divisions.

We're not in the same division as Milwaukee or Chicago, I don't see Portland and Seattle being in different divisions as being any worse.

Pacific
Seattle
Portland
GSW
LAC
LAL

Northwest (or whatever you want to call it)
Minnesota
Denver
Utah
OKC
PHX

Not ideal but not any worse than what we have currently.

See my thread on Gen board. Thats the easy fix. I proposed a bolder move as well.
Or I'll just post it here

If Kings are worth $500 million, I wonder how much the Wolves are. It gotta be higher, right?

I surely hope so.

I'd also like to know by how much the Seattle group overpaid for the Kings. I'd assume they were willing to pay a bit more than market value to get a team back to Seattle.

Poor Kings fans, by the way. I remember the days when I loved watching the Kings in the early 2000's.
