    From an ESPN Insider piece about 3 trades that need to happen, by Jalen Rose. O, HAI JALEN ROSE!:

    I'm so happy jeff green is playing well.... because maybe we can actually trade him! :devil:

    brandon bass... probably has a 35in vertical leap and is near 6'9" but only shoots wide open jumpers, and has zero inside game. :brick:

    hopefully tomorrow brings some interesting trades.

    i was just thinking, if i was Dwight, my free agency year has been such a clusterfuck of drama, injury and immaturity that i might try to re-sign for one year, dominate 2014 then name my price.

    with respect to the Jalen Rose piece that Rambo posted, my reaction was, i'm not sure Atlanta would even want to make that trade. Horford's a really nice piece, and he's not as good as Howard but has no drama, works hard, and i think he's signed long term.

    Ok, if we're basing this on Championships then Robert Horry > Duncan/Dirk

    Makes no sense, right?

    :fu: another year of will he/won't he drama for the 2014 with dwight? sign me up! talk about making a pressure cooker situation with kobe's last year too. would be epic for lakers fans to deal with.

    44% better than jordan.

    seriously though duncan is better than dirk by a long shot. just duncan's fundamental inside game, rebounds, and all nba defense alone makes him a more complete player than dirk. but then again when dirk is going offensively he did easily best, kobe/duncan/durrant/lebron/wade. he's just that unstoppable when playing normally/healty/in his prime. he's a bit like kobe though where you have to cater a team to dirk's strengths. duncan? you could probably put a d-league team around him and still win 50 games.

    By a long shot is a stretch. You can make an argument for either guy. Dirk's shooting compensates for much of what he lacks inside, and his inside game developed.

    Both have been durable. Defensively Duncan is better. If I was forced to pick I would lean Duncan but by a hair.

    Report: this is the most boring and overblown trade deadline in recent memory.

    Make it end

    Hardly any moves on trade deadline.

    Looks like the new cap rules are stunting moves. Draft picks are worth a lot more than they have ever been.

    Indiana detsroyed them yesterday. Indiana pretty much owns NY and Miami this year, they are too physical for both of those teams. This Indiana team is like the old school bruising Pacers of Miller, Smits, the Davis boys etc. while NY and Miami have been getting smaller. Not sure what the answer is but I am not crazy about Woodson's insistence on playing his 7-8 guys regardless of what is going on. They looked real slow yesterday. He had Copeland on the bench, who is instant offense and White, who is very athletic but those guys did not see any light. They are going to need Wallace if they face Indiana in the playoffs and I don't think he is coming back.

    Except for Roy Hibbert who fouled out in 18 mins. Tyson Chandler owned him.
