lol. Humphries with 25 and 8 to lead the NJ Nets over the Clippers.
F*ck miami. Last time I went there it rained every f*cking night.
refs don't give him calls Posted by: The Watcher (The blog is more divided than team) | January 28, 2010 at 07:25 AM Agree
Posted by: ohyeah | January 28, 2010 at 12:28 AM Dude. No one besides myself, King Riley, and hotleo have any desire to trade Wade to the Knicks.
How about Rose Wade Durant Beasley Lopez All supporting players making MUCH less than the max and would still easily win a ship.
Posted by: Chalmers sucks | January 28, 2010 at 12:22 AM Problem is Joe Johnson is almost definitely going to get a max. Not because he's a max player, but that's just what guys like him get. Rashard Lewis got a $110 million dollar deal and he's not even that good either. And JO will almost definitely get more than 1m/yr.
proposed trade rumor of amare and amundson to New Jersey for Yi Janlian, courtney lee, bobby simmons, and 2 1st rounders. wow Posted by: adrian | January 28, 2010 at 12:20 AM WOW, NJ would pull off a steal. And I hope it happens, I have Nets floor tickets vs the Wizards this Friday and the Sixers the coming Sunday.
to Knicks: Wade, Chalmers, Cook, J.Jones to Heat: Lee, Gallinari, Hill, Nate, Douglas, Mobley, draft pick. i like it. great for the league to have Wade at msg. great young core from ny to us. Beas becomes the superstar in 2 years. another allstar can come from FA. Posted by: ohyeah | January 28, 2010 at 12:03 AM On paper you guys win that deal but LeBron would almost be 100% guaranteed to join the Knicks if that were to happen. He'd get to play next to another superstar, play in the biggest market in the world, and unlike in Miami it would not be Wade's city.
"They had more bullets," Wade said. ------- Spo was asked this exact question in the post game "did toronto simply have more bullets". Response: No, we couldn't stop them defensively, couldn't come up with 3 or 4 stops in a row....... Posted by: dred99 (I drive The Energy Bus with resiliency) | January 28, 2010 at 12:01 AM lol. The Raptors were the Italian Mafia, Wade was Rambo with a machine gun in each arm, his teammates were Indians were bows and arrows. Hard to win shootouts like that.
Posted by: kbboy80 | January 27, 2010 at 11:28 PM Plus Wade signed his own death warrant. No one to blame but himself. And his dumb agent, Henry Thomas.
With Bargnani beasting on Haslem the Heat should have countered by putting in Beasley for defense. Yes you read that right.
Duncan with 20 and 27 tonight. The f*ck?
Posted by: josh | January 27, 2010 at 10:59 PM Harris got to the FT line though. Rose doesn't. Its pretty unbelievable a quick guard like Rose can shoot 20+ FGs and shoot around 50% but get so few FT attempts. I don't know how to rationalize that.
Posted by: josh | January 27, 2010 at 10:45 PM Yeah they've been nuts. I can't believe how Rose can not be a great shooter and not get to the line but still be such a good offensive player. He's been awesome this entire month.
Ok, did we really have a chance to trade for Carmelo? 'Cause if Riley said no to a Marion/Beas for Melo trade, he's lost his marbles & 2010 might end bad for Heat fans. Posted by: GodsSon521 | January 27, 2010 at 10:42 PM I'm not sure if that deal was possible, but it was as close to being a possibility as there ever was. Beasley was a phenomenal prospect and Melo was at an all time low in terms of value. I don't remember the exact circumstances but I know there was a bad rap about Melo at the time.
Wow, Rose's Bulls just beat Durant's Thunder.
Posted by: Adam | January 27, 2010 at 10:31 PM I'm not with you on Boozer.. I think he is an overrated product of the system. Watch some Jazz games, that team is tailor made for PFs to score. Great shooters, great pick and roll system with a great penetrating point guard. Beasley would easily replicate that on the Jazz. But on Bosh I agree. You see, I just think Beasley was a waste of a pick. You either pick and trade him if you're going to use him the way you have done thus far, or you pick OJMayo/Westbrook/Lopez. One or the other. Thats it. And if you had the intention of playing him but he didn't meet your expectations, showcase him and trade him. Don't bench him in his first season behind the Gritster.
And the reason I agree with you Eddie in hindsight is because, a) Wade beat the odds, pulled the bunny out of the hat and came back better than ever, and b) The Heat aren't developing Beasley correctly anyway. If either of those weren't the case, then keeping Beasley would have been the right choice.
Come on, Chris. Admit it. This developing Beasley thing has been ridiculous. They should have used him to bring in some talent via a trade. He's the most valuable chip we have. We are wasting Wade. Nobody sees it. Posted by: eddieomaha | January 27, 2010 at 09:54 PM I only agree in HINDSIGHT, and that's ONLY if it involved Carmelo or Dirk. And not guys like... sorry Eddie.. Kaman, Camby or Butler.
Posted by: eddieomaha | January 27, 2010 at 10:14 PM Bulls aren't a BAD team. They are 7th seed in the playoffs. They're not good or anything, I'd say they're about average. They have exactly a .500 record.
I miss when Wade used to be able to coast the first half, while deferring in the first to teammates who knew how to score.. and then taking over in the 2nd. Now he has to be dominant in the first half AND dominate in the second half against double and triple teams. Sorry, that's just not going to happen.
That left the Heat, which had led by as many as 13 in the first quarter, fielding a lineup at the top of the second quarter of Mario Chalmers, Dorell Wright, Udonis Haslem, Joel Anthony and Jones. And, no, it did not work out very well, with the Heat going from a 34-23 lead at the end of the first to 38-34 before Spoelstra called time with 8:20 to play in the second." Why does Spoelstra always put in lineups like that in the 2nd quarter? You ALWAYS lose badly with that unit.
Haslem got f*cking lit up. He's garbage. Chris -- take him for Nate Robinson? Posted by: josh | January 27, 2010 at 09:22 PM Our best point guard for your worst power forward, WTF? Our first round pick vs your undrafted player? Our two time slam dunk champion vs mr. never made an all star weekend event?
Enjoy 5th seed Toronto.
Wright with the 3 over Wright. Dorrel had a decent game but A. Wright outplayed him on both ends.
