    I don't want to follow the D Wade saga. Please just let it be over one way or the other

    This Cousins talk is just the latest in how, year after year, the Lakers media machine proves itself to be the most delusional in pro sports. What trade for DC could the Lakers put together that wouldn't have Vlade Divac say "not just hell no, but never fucking call me again"

    Lakers media or Knicks media. Not sure who is more delusional. Perhaps dopey or Lawrence can chime in


    For the record: Being a Chicago Bulls fan,,, their media machine is :facepalm: worthy as well.... Boston media is the most level-headed.

    ^ Oh FFS give me a break. He worked himself into a contract by flailing around all over the place like a chicken with it's head cut off. At least Jeremy Lin actually scored a few points.

    Ok, this is a super long shot, probably even borderline delusional, but Boogie's days in Sac-Town look to be numbered -- George Karl is pushing for the Kings to trade Cousins because he doesn't think he can manage him...they apparently haven't spoken to each other since April. It also doesn't seem like any team will be able to give the Kings fair value for a franchise cornerstone. Probably the best they can do is a package of the #2 pick and Julius Randle from the Lakers. If this happens, the Kings will most likely flip their #6 pick, ideally for Ty Lawson if they can swing that trade and reunite Lawson with Karl. With the #2 pick, they can draft Jahlil Okafor (assuming Towns goes #1), who's a much more mobile center than Boogie ever was, and now you have the foundation for Karl to run his trademark uptempo run-and-gun system that he ran in Denver. Crazy? Probably insane, but if the relationship between Boogie and the Kings has deteriorated this much, what else can they try to do at this point?

    There's also talk of Rondo signing a 1-year deal with Sacramento, but I think everyone would prefer if they got Ty Lawson...

    PHIL JACKSON: 'I DID A GREAT JOB'

    The Knicks team president evaluated his performance: "I did a great job last year, shedding [contracts] to put us in a position where we have this flexibility.” The Knicks finished with a franchise-low 17 wins.

    i actually agree with the zen master. this is the first offseason that i can remember that the knicks werent bogged down with a roster full of albatross contracts. no e.curry, no amare, no marbury, no jerome james, steve francis. atleast they sucked without being over the cap; an accomplishment for the knicks

    LOLOLOLOL all those albatross contracts were to expire either way... sure he got rid of JR Smith but had to throw in Shumpert to do it... its like he's taking credit for watching paint dry

    Just swinging at an irresistable softball.
    I wasn't a fan of the Maloufs but have had no beef with the franchise since then, and crappy owners can't be blamed on fans anyway.
    My little brother lives in Davis and is a Kings fan, and contrary to what most of you might expect he's the nicest guy you'll ever meet. I wouldn't want to be a Kings fan, but it's not like this is a great time to be a Lakers fan, either.

    I have trouble imagining Vlade Divac as a team GM. Mainly because I remember him as a player and it was virtually impossible to take him seriously

    He was a wily 'ol fox as a player. I think he can do the GM thing. Depends. Looks like it's either him or Karl that has to go. Get rid of Karl, bring in a guy like Kevin Olle. Karl destroys relationships with players.
