Posted Tuesday April 15, 2014, About: Trump taking a legit run at the Bills
As an owner, he can not spend more money than anybody else but he would be a great owner. Keeping the team in Buffalo in important. Moving a team that has support every year is not good for business. He also knows when to shut up and he would be quiet because as a NFL owner, the money keeps pouring in your pockets. That being said the whole USFL thing will screw him since other people could buy the team as well.
Posted Tuesday April 15, 2014, About: Odom's arrival in New York imminent
As a bench player Odom is not bad but he can also be part of trade to match salaries and then released by another team. I bet the second option is more toward reality.

You are right it is like jenga.
Posted Friday April 04, 2014, About: Woodson's new answer to all matchups
This idea will work if Shumbert, Hardaway or Smith hit their jumpers. Otherwise there is no proper spacing and the offense will suffer.
Posted Wednesday April 02, 2014, About: This year's Andrew Wiggins
I think Texas would complain to the NCAA if that happened.
Posted Wednesday April 02, 2014, About: Trump could save the Buffalo Bills
Even though I think Trump would help the Bills and the NFL, he will never be accepted as an owner. He used the NFL when he was a owner in the USFL. Also, the owners want a stay is line type character instead of one that speaks his mind, ala Mark Cuban.

You can bring up Jerry Jones as an owner that speaks his mind also. I believe he has helped the NFL tremendously as an owner (if you dislike the Cowboys you could say the same as the GM). The difference is the the NFL owners when Jones was allowed into the fold did not know what was coming, with Trump they have a good idea what is coming.
Posted Tuesday April 01, 2014, About: Cavs setting up for major trade
While I do not believe Irving is on the block, there are multiple teams with two first round picks this year. The Magic have two first round picks this year (theirs and the Knicks) as does Chicago (theirs and the Bobcats), potentially the Bobcats (the Blazers pick and Piston but it is top 8 protected), and the best combo for the Cavs, the Sixers (theirs and the Pelicans picks)

The Sixers make no sense with Carter-Williams.
The Bobcats are starving for a winner and with Jefferson, adding Irving would be nice.
Chicago makes no sense with Rose and the same division
The Magic have a nice young core that Irving could easily help

Out of these teams the Bobcats would leap at a deal for Irving assuming salaries can matchup.
Posted Tuesday April 01, 2014, About: Cavs setting up for major trade
They must have a name they want and are discussing a trade already to make this deal. Hopson must love it. 1.35 million to travel around the country, watch NBA games and to stay in shape in practice.
Posted Wednesday March 05, 2014, About: Barkley's unique solution for tanking
So a team that can not attract the top FA like a Charlotte or Sacramento will be forfeiting picks? If you are not picking high, you can not become better through the draft, which by the way takes time because players need to grow especially now with many freshman coming out. If you can not attract the top FA, and you can not get the top picks, your franchise is screwed. You will have 4-5 very good teams, a few middle of the road teams and most of the league with no chance of making the playoffs every year.

The draft is easily the most important in the NBA compared to other sports because a) less players play, and b) players play the whole game and because of this a player has more direct results on the outcome of a game. You take away the top draft picks for teams that are not good right now, the circle will begin.

I also disagree with you about the owners. They care if they win. Most of them are basketball fans first otherwise they would never even consider owning the team. Plus, winning helps the bottom line.

As for the Cavs plan, they have a top 3 PG right now to build around. How did they get him, though the draft. They just trade to take on more salary.

Now the the Wolves. I do not see them trading Love but if they did the Celtics make the most sense since they have 6 first round picks in the next 3 years. Plus, if you are Love, a players who was raised in the California sun and you could choose between a cold weather team like the wolves or a warm weather team like LA (not to mention more endorsements) or Golden State, where would you play?
Posted Tuesday March 04, 2014, About: Browns passed on Manziel
In 3 - 4 years, we will know. One year is not enough for any player in pro sport. Some take time to produce and some play well initially but can not adjust after everyone adjusts to them.
Posted Tuesday February 25, 2014, About: Mets frustrated with out-of-shape Tejada
That means they are playing well, otherwise no team would want them. Davis may get traded but not Tejada.
Posted Tuesday February 25, 2014, About: Mets frustrated with out-of-shape Tejada
Which is why Drew will not be signed by the Mets. Teams use this type of encouragement to improve sometimes and it may work depending on the player.
Posted Monday February 24, 2014, About: Stephen Drew critical of draft compensation system
and the rumored opt out after the first season.
Posted Monday February 24, 2014, About: Injured Davis left Mets in the dark
Davis is going to be good this year. .285 28hr 90rbi is going to happen if he stays healthy. Gut feeling. He also plays a pretty good defensive first base. I am assuming he will hit 5th behind Murphy, Wright and Granderson. He will have enough rbi chances with those three ahead of him.
Posted Friday February 21, 2014, About: The toughest road in the country
I disagree with poorly coached. Some of the coaches are the same coaches. Look at Syracuse, Jim Boeheim has been at Syracuse for 37 years. How about Roy Williams, Rick Pitino, Billy Donovan, Steve Alford and Tubby Smith (524 wins seems like a lot for him that is what he has)? There are some great young coaches all over the country and some even come with great blood lines like John Thompson III and Richard Pitino.

This biggest difference between now and before is the talent is more spread out across the country. There is no way a Butler type school gets to back to back national championship games 20 years ago. There is no way Creighton would have he player of the year on their team 30 years ago.
Posted Tuesday February 18, 2014, About: Big Noah Syndergaard wows in 2014 debut
The pitching has a bright future. When you add in an 18 game winner last year, Gee and Niese, they are deep and talented. Add Harvey next year with more experience for the Wheeler and Syndergaard, it can be dominate. The Mets farm system was rated #6 overall so Sandy Alderson and his team is doing something right.
Posted Monday February 17, 2014, About: Best WR target for Pats
I do not know what he would want or the cap space in NE but would you pay him lets say $6 million if it meant cutting a decent player on defense? Offense is the not the issue in NE. I would keep the solid defensive players before the WRs. NE has the same issue every team with a high paid QB has, lack of depth. If one important player goes down, like Wilfork or Mayo, one whole side of the ball will be in shambles.
Posted Monday February 17, 2014, About: Best WR target for Pats
No he does not. There are very few top WRs and they do not become available very often. He needs a TE to replace Hernandez and like every team hope for health on both sides of the ball (especially defense where they are not that great to begin with). The WRs in NE are fine. I see the Pats selecting a pass catching TE by the end of round 2.
Posted Monday February 17, 2014, About: Roster overhaul coming to New York
They are and Tom will be able to leave when he wants unless they are like the Texans. The media does not run the Giants. Look at Dallas for that.
Posted Monday February 17, 2014, About: Mysterious market for Jimenez
or what he wants.
Posted Monday February 03, 2014, About: Mara pushing for another NYC/NJ Super Bowl
That will never happen. People are use to watching NFL football on Sunday. It would be on a Monday before a Saturday.
