Rockets and Knicks are trying to work on a 4 team trade, you guys have any idea who the other 2 teams are?

I don't think that anyone knows for sure, but Portland and New Orleans have been mentioned a lot.

I'm also hearing Utah & Memphis as possibilities.

Rumor I hear PHX is the 4th team. PHX offer Knight but NYK want Bledsoe.

Not just replaced, I'd say it's an upgrayedd! Two D's for...well, honestly I was just thinking about titties, but it's still an upgrade because Black can actually grab a rebound.

Just noticed there's a player in the NBA right now named Diamond Stone and she allegedly doesn't have a side gig as a stripper.

Rumor is crazy:

1. Rockets trying to trade for Melo
2. NYK don't want Anderson contract
3. Rockets looking for 3rd team to take Anderson contract
4. Portland willing to take Anderson contract but need a 4th team to take Leonard contract (rumor Phoenix is the 4th team)
5. Then news say Portland thought they were the one getting Melo (WTF? they don't have internet, they didn't know Rockets is going after Melo???)
6. Then Charlotte is going after Melo too (too bad Melo not willing to waive his no trade clause for Jordan, Melo is Jordan brand spokesmen)
7. Now Portland is going back to step 4
8. New rumor is Rockets is done with Portland and looking for new 3rd team to take Anderson contract
9. Rumor the new 3rd team is Detroit and they will send Harris to NYK

I don't know if this is just a trade that people come up and work in ESPN trade machine or true.
Have a nice day.

Apparently the Rockets offered more money than the Sixers, but Redick chose the Sixers due to more playing timing and starting.

They offered more money over more years, likely the MLE for four years they gave PJ Tucker, in actuality he will make a LOT more over that 4 year span with what he took

Don't forget Jared was a Rocket for 36 games over two seasons. He was part of the T-Mac deal.
Harden is still a work-in-progress. He can score, but he can't help his teammate that much - Yao Ming

But I get your point. Jordan after 91 felt transcedent when I saw him play. I never got that feeling watching Kobe.


Hm.
Jordan was drafted after his Jr. year, but still played 30-37 games those three years in college. Difference: 99 games.
Jordan missed 93-94 and 51 games out of 94-95, and 64 games of 85-86 if it should be counted: 197 games. (or 133 games, as you wish)
So 296 games less, yet Jordan only had 1914 fewer points at the same point (6.4 ppg, and it was only 128 fewer points if you include the points he scored in college while Kobe was padding his pro stats from 96-99) Again, *snicker*
Oh, and Jordan shot 5.4% better for his career. *snicker*
He even managed to have more affairs than Kobe. Oh Kobe, Kobe, Kobe, can't you win anything?

TMU, seriously, are you TRYING to troll the Lakers? ;)

Hey Lakers, you really need to get rid of Pau, he's holding Kobe back!

This is too much fun.


Anyway, this is why I was thinking of it.

Tbh, I kinda miss the bastard. It's like if Superman comics retconned kryptonite out of the story. I mean, we just lost one of the most interesting elements, and now it's kinda stupid. :) On the other hand, now I can mock him and he can't even defend himself by dropping 50 YAY POINTS, so whee!

Then yesterday, my childhood nurse, who I had thought was only a few years older than me, told me about her grandchildren.
.... well ok, then.
