Thus the beauty of the R instead of the U...

I dont care how far Nellie's arm reaches up Mully's ass... Biedrins is staying a Warrior, Mully can't let his 1st successful draft pick walk.

This is banking on a FA actually will sign with Memphis. What are the chances of that?? And anyone who signs won't be better than Gasol. They better be extremely lucky in the lottery. Might as well gotten some pieces for Gasol so they could use those down the road as well. Pure cap space didn't do Charlotte any good and it won't do Memphis any good either.

Are you referring to the recent rumor or did it actually go down? If so, where'd you here it? Just curious.

I :love: that move for the Nuggets... for this one season.

Artest usually has a honeymoon period where he's all smiles... he wont ballhog in DEN, there are flat out better scoring options and he knows it.

That team is scary... the best all-around defender and the best post defender, paired up with one of the quickest scorers and one of the strongest scorers...

Karl leading that team is kinda funny :lol: But they are extremely dangerous now, and I dont forsee it hurting the Nuggets long term, as Artest likely bolts for NY in the offseason, barring a big postseason run by the Nuggs..

But so many combustible personalities... the first losing streak should be interesting :D

It was somewhere on the general board. From that same dude who broke the Gasol story. It was like Kleiza/Najera for Artest. Not sure if it's gonna go down, but he did break the Gasol one.

Lakers should trade Odom for Dunleavy. That'd make them contenders.

Regardless of the Artest crap...

A friend of mine from JKidd's HS alma mater mentioned that Kidd was told to wait when he asked for an NJ trade, for the "dust to settle".

When I called him about this trade, he said it makes too much sense.

Odom + Farmar/Turiaf to NJ...

Its entirely possible that the Lakers are NOT finished.

Memphis has some good young talent at PG, Mully should give them a call. They don't need 4 PG's.
