    After their Plan A fell through spectacularly, they've made a somewhat nice recovery. I was sure the Mavs were a lock for a lottery pick next year. Now, they have the potential to be a middle of the pack team and they haven't given away their cap flexibility.

    Still think it was a horrible decision to basically forfeit last season for merely a chance at DWill.

    Lakers reuniting Jermaine O'Neal with Metta World Peace. Any idea how far over the cap they are?

    Lol at the Lin hate. Kind of a weird dynamic really. Players get traded like baseball cards with little or no say in the matter then get grief when they actually have an opportunity to make a decision in their own interest.

    Yeah the Lin hate is mostly driven by Knicks fans and amplified by ESPN. Dolan is apparently pissed at him for saying that he was disappointed NY didn't offer him anything first. Really? You're pissed at the guy for asking for some loyalty? You'll hold a grudge against the guy who saved your season while leading a bunch of scrubs after your marquee lineup failed to deliver night in and night out, while you paid him pennies on the dollar? And how much money did you make off his popularity? Right then.

    Yes, he will be overpaid now if you only consider what happens on the court, but when you include his marketability in to the equation, the offer makes sense. Houston has had a taste of the Asian market and they obviously want more. Even thought that level of popularity won't be there since it is Houston after all and not NY, the Rockets will still make back that $25 million in less than 2 years.

    What's more puzzling actually is the offer they made to Asik...

    And they've gone and traded Courtney Lee to the Celtics for a draft pick and some back up players.

    Lee wants a lot of money, and seeing as how Houston is all about the numbers lately, I can see why they're letting him go.

    Still, the $25 million to Asik...

    ???

    The earliest I had heard was that he might be back a bit after the all-star break. I didn't think anybody realistically thought he would be back way before that. Hell, I'm expecting him to miss the whole year.

    No, but he sounds like a hero:

    Two nights later on March 13, Sandoval continues, "Augmon became angered over a question that an Orlando Sentinel reporter asked Magic guard Steve Francis."That's a stupid [expletive] question," Augmon allegedly said, according to several reports. When a male Florida Today reporter told Augmon that they were interviewing Francis and not him, Augmon shouted obscenities and began moving toward the reporter. A Magic employee stepped in front of Augmon, who then threw a bottle of lotion at the reporter. The bottle did not strike the reporter but some of its contents splashed his clothes. Augmon later apologized to the reporter by purchasing him a new suit made of fine Italian silk.

    If the Bulls are smart they'll sit him for the season. They won't, however, cause Reinsdorf is an utter cheapskate and will be putting pressure on to make the playoffs and they'll probably rush him back.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Yeah this has been my worry since day 1. All these articles about how he's coming along faster than expected scare the **** out of me.
