So it was the Hawks that led Javaris on a path of destruction
I think you can legitimately make that case. Also, the Hawks would probbaly have been better off with the hometown kid than Acie Law, who was a total bust. Talk about a lose/lose.

Yeah Kidd just stepped all on Larry Drew, but Mike Woodson felt Drew crossed the line here in Atlanta, so what goes around.

The Suns are in a good spot but they about to over spend for Haywood. He's not a next level guy.

Yeah I don't see Haywood being no more than a Mike Dunleavy Jr.

That's actually not a bad comparison. Hayward is coming off a less-than-stellar season too. Plus, the Jazz kinda drafted over him last week so he can probably be had for less than near-max.

Really? I really think he can be a 16-20ppg guy.
He could be. It depends on how well he can shoot the 3 but I don't see him as a post player and he's a liability on defense. He's a bit undersized playing the 4 in a traditional offense and a bit big to play the 3. He could prove me wrong though. He's got a good midrange shot and can shoot in traffic.

Interesting. Saw rumors James will sign for 2years at the max. IOW, in 2 years we'll be frothing over the thought of him teaming up with Durant in NY. Yay! (sarcastic).
I would be very happy with that decision, but I'm not convinced he wants to pay NYS/NYC income taxes.

Lol, forgot you were a Knick. Hey, NY could also mean the Nets. I'm from Atlanta so they're all the same to me. :cool:

Very interested to see what Wade takes.

TIFWIW.

Heat teammate Chris Bosh has agreed in principal to a five-year contract extension with Miami that would pay him $11 million in the first year, the source confirmed. Further, Heat teammate Dwyane Wade has agreed to re-sign in Miami for four years, beginning at $12 million in year one.
At least it's not Ric Bucher reporting it, then we'd know it's wrong.
