I don't think you can be president if you've had a felony.

Go Spurs Go.

At least you didn't drop Taj Gibson the day before he's set to get starter's minutes. That is my facepalm of the season

Did you know that Noah had a long term injury when you made that trade? Regardless though, if it was entered in good faith I kind of feel that it should go through....but still

Only three of those teams have a winning record (Hawks, Jazz, Hornets).

Sort of...but more like enjoying the sunshine because once they lose 2 games in a row I know I'm going to get dogpiled

But here's a fun fact - the SF beloved Lakers dont have that great a record against winning teams either

Whats a commish to do. I got to call up Stern and see what he would do.
Need to hear from both parties, in the end, I'll probably let the other managers decide.

however, at the time of deal, it looked like an even trade (here's a copy/paste as i dont recall the details):






rights to marc gasol and first round picks and the other three (which are negligible somewhat), but that doesnt sound like a steal to me AT the time of the trade.

and we all know how well marc is playing too. actually for the point of having more strength in the middle (as pau gets limpy in the 4th) i sometimes wonder what marc would have done for us
Sho, I love you man but that trade was a young, still-improving all-star at the scarcest position in the league for utter garbage. Marc Gasol is a nice surprise, but he was a second round talent at the time and the trade was made by a GM that no one would accuse of having a crystal ball.

Thats like trading away Dr. J in his prime and not getting a single serviceable NBA player in return (wait, that actually happened too?!)

Also, on another news, first batch of ASG votes are in: I'm not surprised but at all that votes for Yao. And Bynum second? Pau should be a center.

I was scrolling down that list and thought "wow for once I can't argue with the votes" Then I got to the centers

No argument with Dwight being first in the East but Horford needs to be higher.
For the West, I think Okafor should be a starter and no one else even really comes close, maybe Tyson Chandler?

any trade that got rid of kwame brown was a gimme. but pau wasn't really pau until he came to the lakers. he was a good center who had never really lived up to his potential. turned out he was the perfect fit for the triangle, particularly when he can play the 4. but if he was still in memphis, stuck at 5 in a traditional offense, i think he'd still be good, but not living up to his potential. and i do remember at the time regretting giving up crittenden. i still think he may turn out to be a player.

West forwards are exactly right but the coaches need to put Kevin love on. Pau needs to be the starting West C which makes room for Dirk Josh smith should be a starting east F but getting bumped by Lebron or Amare won't be a crime G spots are good but Rose, Deron and Westbrook need to get on too Dwight and Horford in east and Gasol/Love as west C's. Why the he'll does Bynum have four times the votes of Horford?!?!

That's what happens when you're the only big name (and arguably most famous person) in a country with a population of 1.5 BILLION peeps.

You're bound to get a few votes.
