I agree, it was classless. He cares more about winning, and media hype/attention.

Of course, as far as winning goes, the Heat don't really have anything else apart from those 3 for the moment, so they may not actually win anything this coming season.

Bumping for some trades and signings.

Fisher stays in LA
Haslem Stays in Miami
Splitter to Spurs
Farmar to Nets

Any others you feel like mentioning, talking about.

And I'm wondering what the Raptors are going to look like when the season starts.

Barbosa for Turkoglu is great, but...it makes Jose more useful than Jack. Yet Jose goes for Diaw and Chandler >_>

First off, thank you Lord for having Fisher stay in LA. I would have been disappointed if he left LA, but I would have been capital pee eye ess ess ee dee if he went to Miami. If we signed Blake but not Fish, it would have been utterly pointless. I was glad we got Blake, but before getting Fish? Come on. At least we got him back.

And so far, Ebanks and Caracter are looking like steals for the Lakers in the Summer League. I only watched one game (which the Lakers lost badly by like 20), but these two guys are looking solid. It's hard to tell how they'll do during the season since this is... well... summer league, but I'm looking for these two guys to replace Walton and Powell in the future.

Personally, I'm not feeling the whole Turkoglu to the Suns thing. Hedo was complaining about not handling the ball enough in Toronto. He's definitely not going to be handling the ball in Phoenix with Nash still on the team, and Hedo needs the ball in his hands to be effective. I don't really think he plays off the ball that well. However, in terms of pure quality, I think Hedo was a steal for Barbosa.

Also, I think Bosh leaving Toronto is addition by subtraction. Now players like Sonny Weems, Demar Derozan, and Antoine Wright can have the chance to perform at high levels (or at least higher than with Bosh). I think Ed Davis was a pretty good pick for them as well.

But seriously, I'm really feeling the Bulls right now. If they can build some chemistry during the season and possibly add/trade for a few more pieces in the offseason, they can make a run in the much improved East. Here's for DRose 1st Team All NBA.

Yeah, looks like the Lakers drafted well.

And yeah, Bosh going gives some players more, but we have backlogs in SG (you just mentioned 3 SG/Swingmen xD) and slightly in PF, which counteracts it. And Wright is an unrestricted FA, not sure if he's getting resigned.

Bulls are looking good right now, and they seem to have good spirit. Maybe if Deng stays fit for a whole season, it'd help. Boozer and Noah are a pretty strong frontcourt. Rose is huge, but I don't think he'll take 1st team this year. Paul (if fit) or Williams are more likely, but we'll have to wait and see the season unfold.

lol. Yeah, I'm pretty sure Wade, CP3, or Williams will get 1st team before Rose, but I'm just being a hopeful Rose fan. I'm hoping for a breakout season where he just takes his game to a new level and has a chance to be on the 1st team.

And yeah, Toronto does indeed have a backlog in its backcourt, especially after adding Barbosa. I'm thinking they'll make some trades to give some help in the frontcourt. I'm not sure if the trade went down, but I was hearing they were also going to get Boris Diaw and Tyson Chandler. That would definitely boost that frontcourt.

Note: Not partaking in this thread's discussion because of someone who has just ****ed up Cleveland. And not just basketball-wise.

ATM I'm looking for a new team to like. Almost all of the west side teams, the Celtics, the Magic, and the Heat are not options.

Bulls. Chicago is moving up there in my rankings. I think I'm starting to like them more than Orlando. Plus, Chicago is pretty close to Ohio. Or maybe you're better off rooting for Detroit or Indiana. Right now my teams are (in order) Lakers, Clippers, Bulls, Magic.

However, if you're really a fan, then you'll stick with the Cavs. There's no reason to desert them because they won't be winning a lot anymore. That's actually what a true fan does. Bandwagon fans only like them when they're winning.

Uh, Bulls, like previously stated, as they have a bright future, or the Thunder, who also have potential.

Raptors

But yeah, stick with the Cavs.

I mentioned it earlier, Jordan is having second thoughts on the trade, so I'm not too sure. But it'd leave us with 3-4 PFs and 2 Cs, which isn't too bad, seeing as Amir is foul-prone.

*Phoenix down*

The Cavaliers beat the Celtics, then lost it twice to two really dumb teams that we should have beaten.

Come on, the Raptors and the KINGS? We should be 3-0 right now.

Yeah, we = Cavaliers/Cleveland fans.

Yeah, Celtics beat the Heat but couldn't beat Cleveland. Maybe they don't need Lebron? tongue.gif

Remember Bobryk is a Celtics fan.

Lol that's what everyone is thinking (myself included to some extent XD) until we lost 2 games to teams we should have beat, if not owned.

I never did understand Cleveland... that is, I don't understand why it happens, I understand that it happens and that it is bound to happen, but I don't understand why Cleveland. dry.gif

^lol sounds like you've been through a lot too and I haven't even been alive for half of Cleveland's miseries

BACK TO BASKETBALL, the Cavs are 3-3. What's good, WE DON'T COMPLETELY SUCK. ONLY SOMEWHAT.

Although IMO we should be 4-2, 5-1 at best. I can understand losing to the Hawks, but losing to the Kings? WTF? That shoulda been a win. The other team, whatever team that was that I can't remember, was decent enough that I won't cry that we lost, but still could have been a win...

And, as per usual, the Lakers are the number 1 team (atm), and the Celtics are up there, too.

While I'd love to see another Celtics/Lakers final...lets get some new teams in there this year, eh?

I don't usually care about the NBA, but when I play basketball games (N64 bball games, mind you), I usually head for the Magic or (rarely) the Celtics. How are the Magics doing? Also, it looks like the Celtics are up there... Kinda surprising, as every both Celtics games I saw had them lose.

The Celtics have been top contenders for the last few years, so it shouldn't be surprising tongue.gif

And the Magic are doing well, as per usual.
