09:44 AM ET 11.11 | The Nets didn't trade for Gerald Wallace because of how they could match up with the Heat or because they figured he could guard LeBron James, although that's how GM Billy King is busy spinning it now. Nets insiders vividly recall that Wallace was imported from Portland because "we got burned by Dwight Howard," according to one team source, "and we were hoping that getting Wallace would help keep Deron Williams around." Back then, it was all about keeping Williams from bolting to the Mavs. The Heat/James angle wasn't a big consideration.

Please stop wit this madness. Wallace has about as much chance of stopping Lebron as I of joining the Knicks......it ain't gonna happen. Its about the same as the Nets replacing the Knicks as kingpins of New York City......it ain't gonna happen. This is Apple and I'm out!
