Perkins just desperately trying to justify his existence on a team that has no use for him.
Posted Friday October 18, 2013, About: Coach K wants Rose in red, white and blue
And the parade of armchair quarterbacks continue to give their unsolicited advice on how to recover from a traumatic injury and play MVP basketball in response to a post about Olympic basketball...

Apparently, Daddy gives him good advice.
Posted Monday July 08, 2013, About: Asik now wants out
Yeah, and 20ppg is fairly modest for a guy with his physical gifts. A player's offensive game is not defined by ppg alone. Dwight cannot dribble, pass, shoot, or hit a free throw to save his life. He has no range whatsoever and his post moves are stiff. His offensive game is one dimensional and he relies far too much on alley-oops and put backs. You don't exactly build an offense around that.

Peavy. Konerko. Dunn. Rios. Beckham. Ramirez. All expendable. Just don't be stupid and trade away young pitching, seeing that is the exact asset you would be looking to get back as a rebuilding team.

Short answer: YES

Sign DH and Houston will have a problem.

"I don't know if there's one player in NBA history who's guarded one through five (positions)."

Dennis Rodman?
Posted Wednesday March 27, 2013, About: Surprise Rose appearance unlikely for showdown
The thing that scares me is that all the best competitors (regardless of how stupid it is) would DIE to be on the court right now. Adrian Peterson had the season he had (in part) because he wanted to so badly get back on the field and prove to everyone he was still the same player. From a medical standpoint, the knee is fully healed. But Rose won't be the same player unless he believes it. And it does not appear like he does.
Posted Wednesday March 06, 2013, About: Doesn't anyone want to deal with eager Bowman?
What exactly do you add to (and by necessity subtract from) an elite-offensive and elite-defensive team getting elite goaltending from both netminders? Maybe a big forward to muck up the crease on power plays? The ONLY weakness this team is showing right now is on the PP, which is mediocre, but not terrible. I just do not see any reason to make a mid-season trade for a team that has only 3 losses (all in SO's) after 23 games.

Posted Thursday February 21, 2013, About: Source on Gordon: 'Nobody wants him'
I disagree. Even assuming Gordon fails to get healthy, this team is set up far better for the future than a team centered around Luis Scola...
Posted Wednesday February 20, 2013, About: Blackhawks await word on Hossa
Really? Gimme a break. I'd like to see you take a sucker punch directly in the back of the skull from the elbow of a 200lb athlete when you are obviously not expecting it. Something tells me you too would hit the ice like a sack of potatoes.
Posted Saturday February 09, 2013, About: Hawks taking trade offers for Josh Smith
This guy may be talented, but not worth the trouble...
Posted Monday February 04, 2013, About: Kobe: 'Realistically I have only one year left'
If he could have easily scored 2 points, then passing it to a mediocre shooter for a low percentage shot is a terrible play and the old Kobe was better...
Posted Tuesday January 29, 2013, About: C's in no rush to trade ... yet
Sure, that is the mark of a deep team. But the Celtics were clearly not contenders even before Rondo went down and, in fact, would have been lucky to just make the playoffs as a sub-.500 team (credit the weak Eastern Conference for that even being a possibility). If the Celtics do not make a trade, it will be because nobody wants Pierce or Garnett's bloated contracts, Garnett's no-trade clause, or out of respect to the veterans' wishes. But Ainge would be downright foolish to not make a trade because he believes they are deep enough to contend without Rondo.
Posted Monday January 28, 2013, About: GM: Cap-strapped Bulls unlikely to make deadline trade
It is one thing to say F-the-cap for LeBron and Wade. It is a completely different thing to say F-the-cap for some overpriced veteran in a mid-season trade. The value is just not there and, thus, there is simply no point in taking on those kinds of contracts. A lot of people forget that the Bulls will need cap room to sign Mirotic in the coming years and must plan accordingly.
Posted Wednesday September 12, 2012, About: Hamilton a fit in pinstripes
Imagine what happens in the NY media the first time he slips up and goes to a bar...
Posted Tuesday August 21, 2012, About: Van Gundy can see Rose bolting Chicago
D-Rose signs max extension with Chicago. NBA pundits immediately speculate when he will leave to form next big-3.

What is wrong with the NBA?
Posted Friday July 27, 2012, About: Reinsdorf would contract two MLB teams
Uh, sorry guys, but Reinsdorf is actually right on this one. Contraction might actually help the smaller market teams that are having a hard time surviving in a league without a salary cap and that wildly overpays merely "productive" players. His point (obviously not elaborated in this 100 word blurb) is that expansion would only make baseball's existing problem of parity worse. For those of you who think expansion is a great idea, need only look at the Rays' attendance figures.
Posted Monday June 25, 2012, About: Negotiations leaving scars for Forte
They only work out for two people: the player and his agent. As a Bears fan, it would suck to see Forte go, but I have to say I laud them for not shooting themselves in the foot with a bad, long term running back contract. If anything has been true in the modern NFL, it is that RB's have been surprisingly replaceable.
