Z-Bo is the heart and soul of that team. If they trade him, they're just starting over then.

From the moment he was traded, I have been saying that he'll somehow miss that game.

Personal reasons, "flu", back spasms......something completely fake.

5th pick so far, not bad, but we need the 1st one to get Shabazz, no need for a center here (although we could trade the prospect (#5 pick) which isnt a bad idea).

Not sure if this has been mentioned, but if Phoenix are as dumb as they seem to be and want to give up Dudley and picks for Gay, why dont we offer them a similar oppourtunity for Afflalo!? Hes half the price and more efficient...

They must think Rudy will give them a chance in the playoffs. That is the only reason I see for them pushing for him.

WT says that Raptors want Rudy as well.

Just got to work and want to entertain an idea or 2.


Why are people so off on Brandon Jennings?!?! Everyone has to know that the bucks didn't extend him and that he will be a upcoming F/A that will most likely be dealt.

http://www.hoopsworld.com/has-brandon-j ... ed-it-out/

He is only 23 years old...this kid still has SO much upside. I will say this here like I said about Harden before he got dealt. If we don't jump on getting Bjenn, we will be one of the teams regretting in a couple years.

IMO you can't say he doesn't fit the model because he is a young PG who goes out every off season and gets a little better. He's improved every year.....


Thoughts on the magic doing some kind of deal to absorb contracts while nabbing Bjenn?

http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=afp7x8z

Magic Give-JJ Reddick, Jameer Nelson, Ish Smith
Magic Get-Brandon Jennings, Sam Dalembert, Drew Gooden

Bucks Give-Brandon jennings, Sam Dalembert, Drew Gooden
Bucks Get-Al Jefferson, Ish Smith

Jazz Give-Al Jefferson
Jazz Get-JJ Reddick, Jameer Nelson

Wouldn't let me do some things that would need to be done but you get the idea.

I was thinking of a trade that Memphis could do and that would be with the Lakers of Pau Gasol for Randolph. That would probably help both teams and the Gasol bro's could play together. I would like to see that. But, at the same time, that would help the Lakers with much needed scoring.

If I was MEM I'd probably do it. Not sure Z-Bo fits a Mike D'Antoni offense at all though. Also, I think LAL sort of likes how Pau is wililng to quietly fade into the woodwork; they have enough vocal, emotional, egotistical stars as it is. If Z-Bo was unhappy, and Dwight was unhappy, and Kobe was unhappy, it'd be the Mayan Apocalypse all over again.

I am sorry, but to me that trade is just horrible for the Magic. Jennings is good, but not that much better than Meer. Actually, I like Meer better than Jennings. And, the Magic take on Goodens contract while giving up both Reddick and Meer. No way.

And probably we would have to offer Brandon a big contract, idk... MAYBE if we swap JJ for Hedo in this deal, than we could start to think about it. Bucks has no leverage, maybe they will lose Brandon for nothing.

I could be wrong, but I doubt that Randolph and Dwight can coexist in the paint with one another. He needs a Ryno-type 4 p;laying next to him or he'll be either (a) cutting off the scoring of his power forward or (b) getting fewer touches and bitching about it.

Looking at Hoopdata stats, they seem to shoot from the same location on the floor in general (basically most from inside 3 feet, and generally all shots from inside 9 feet).

Brandon Jennings is overrated.

He shoots 6.2-15.6 and makes 39.4% for his Career with 34% from the Three. This year, he upped his averages to shooting 6.7-16.5 making 40.5%. He has a 5.5 career assist average and 5.9 this season. That is average.

BJ is nothing but a Chucking shoot first PG. For every game like last night, he has two bad games. Lets look at the past 5 games.

Beat PHX 9-15 .600 29pts 9ast
Lost Indy 4-15 .267 12pts 5ast
Lost Hou 6-15 .400 16pts 7ast
lost SA 13-26 .500 31pts 5ast
Lost Det 3-12 .250 9pts 4ast

He is worse than Meer. He shoots way too much and is horrible at scoring on a consistent basis. If he was 6'5" and played good defense, then I would be all over this trade, but Jennings has made none of his teams better and all have been average.

And, someone suggested taking on Goodens horrible contract. Do people think this team needs to have Hedo, Gooden and Harrington sitting on the bench. Henny is not that stupid.

Magic could do better with a Mid 1st round pick than Jennings. Say no to Jennings. Bucks will try to move him because they would rather go with someone else at the Point. Future prediction, Jennings will be a backup someone within 2 years.

Teams looking to trade for Rudy Gay obviously don't value efficiency.
