    Ironically, the word in Philadelphia is there a power struggle between the Harris disciples and the new Coangelo method, the latter of which had us trade two 2nd round picks for Ish Smith, which not only lost us "assets" in picks but made us slightly better so less chance to draft Simmons.

    An undercurrent, however, is that Ish Smith (a decent PG versus pitiful that we had before) makes Noel better, so it's almost saving our prior big.

    That Harden - Dwight fiasco is embarrassing. Dwight still looks like a beast, but seems to lack that killer instinct that the Kobes, Lebrons, and some guy named MJ possess.

    I feel like Channing Frye would just turn into another Spencer Hawes on the Clippers. I feel like if you just filled out the $39M salaries of Griffin and Jordan with other starting caliber (but not All Star) players the team wouldn't be that much worse and would have better depth to support bench time of the starters.

    I'm a fan of UA. They sponsor my school and make great athletic gear. I like them more than Nike, adidas, and Puma.

    The biggest trade at the deadline is the Clippers flipping Lance Stephenson for Jeff Green. Memphis is also getting a first round pick.

    Markieff Morris has been traded to the Wizards.

    Kirk Heinrich traded back to the Hawks.

    Add Chris "Birdman" Anderson to the equation. The league should allow us to ignore the trade deadline and acquire Metta World Piece.

    Memphis can probably start their own wrestling federation, so many 'interesting' players. I look forward to the first reports of Tony Allen and Z-Bo laying down the law with Lance.

    So we went for Chief Keef. Big upgrade for us at the 4, Dudley is smart and can really shoot the 3 but he's got no athleticism. I'm glad we didn't give up Porter or Oubre, our front office sucks at drafting so not too bothered by the pick, and it's protected, at least. I expect Markieff to shoot about 10% better than before - the Wall effect cometh.

    We better keep Nene around just to ensure Markieff is kept in line.

    I hope he doesn't actually say "fam". I like Dame but dislike people who say fam
