Heh, the internet is great after Miami loses.
Forever 63* at the SCG
Someone out West needs to make a trade, or hope that Harden/Ibaka get offered money OKC can't match because this team as constructed is not going away for a long long time.
You could get Scola and Martin for Bosh from Houston, which would be a great deal. Then amnesty Miller, sign Marcus Camby and your rotation would be Chalmers-Wade-Lebron-Scola-Camby with Kevin Martin, Battier and Haslem coming off the bench. Much better.
Also, the talk of the Bosh/Gasol swap would be great for both teams. Miami get a post presence and LA lose no points but get Bynum more space and spread the floor. Win/win.
Hell, after doing that, you could probaly attempt to beg Steve Nash into Miami.
We're pursuing Nash apparently. Makes a lot of sense as Rose is very doubtful for the next 12 months, and even when he does come back who knows how long he'll need to get back to his best. I'm thinking we can't really count on Rose to be anywhere close to where he was for at least two years.
P.S: Riley would never trade Wade.
I don't think Nash would be any good for you at all. Can't play a lick of defence, has no speed or athleticism. Your team is built around Rose, you'll be fine and make the playoffs but you wouldn't go anywhere with Nash. It doesn't make sense to me at all.
My thinking was more along the lines of Nash coming off the bench when Rose comes back with Rose playing minutes at the 2 (a la Iverson). Might seem strange but I can really see Rose benefiting from playing off the ball.
We're also approaching Kidd apparently.
Lebron with 45-15-5. The first time that's happened in the NBA playoffs in 48 years - (Wilt 50-15-6). Just went out taking his ****ty teammates out of the equation.
**** off LeBron.

I sold you and you sold me."
Oh, and I agree re: Nash and Rose playing minutes together, though I think Rose would be a poorer version of AI in that respect though. I think Rose needs the ball more to exploit his insane athleticism.
