    Is it funny that Knick fans and media are talking playoff with Jose Calderon and Bargs on their roster ? Didn't we want them shipped out of town ?

    .
    I actually heard Skip on ESPN say in around about way that Jose Calderon is the key and that is why they looked so ugly against the Bulls yesterday .. I am a big fan of Jose but Knicks fans are delusional if they think Jose will help them lead them to the playoffs ... Jose is a year older and his body breaks down quickly ...

    And it's only a matter of time until opposing offenses start scheming to attack Calderon right off the bat.

    watching Quincy Acy .. Made me think " It seems Colengelo's finally scored a passing grade on a second round pic that he took "

    I think there are a lot of Raptor fans who forgot just how dominant Bosh was while in Toronto.

    Prior to the Celtics trio, I can't think of an example of a big 3 coming together like that (in one off-season).

    20....and 6???

    Dude's never averaged below 6.6 and that was with Lebron and the Heat's high efficiency offense and being asked to play as a stretch 4.
    He's a 20/9 player and if Deng stays healthy and Wade stays relatively healthy I easily see Heat as a top 5 team in the East. Spoelstra's not suddenly going to forget how to coach........remember that both years before Lebron joined he took a team of Wade and junk to the playoffs.
    Your reading it right so far 15 13 and 12 rebound games in his first 5 ...

    Rudy Gay signs a 3 yr-$40mm extension with Sacramento.

    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/sources...063406965.html

    It's really 2 years with the third-year player option as insurance for Rudy, giving him upside if he continues to play like he has recently.

    I'd say it's really solid value. Fit Rudy at the 3 >>> Fat Rudy at the 4.

    Great deal for Rudy.

    Good for him. It's not a monster deal like the one he had with us, but it's still pretty hefty.

    Hope he can live up to it.

    Actually I remember the trio of Barkley, Drexler and Dream coming together in 1996-1997 and they clicked right away. Had a 22-2 start if I'm right.

    Critics like me who said Rudy Gay's days of getting double digit pay days would be over after this contract woke up to the news he got a contract extension 3 years 40 million dollars ...

    I always thought Ed Davis's ceiling was a decent big off the bench. That view may be changing to a quality big off the bench. With a 23 MPs average this year for LAL, he's averaging 8.7 Pts, with a FG% of .627, 7.1 RBs, and 1.5 BLKs. Good guy, so keep it up ED!!!

    Would have liked Raptors to have declined Psychos option and give Ed a 2 year deal. 2Pats and Ed is better than 2Pats and Hands

    Ed was pretty good in college and at the time the Raptors had drafted him it was by sheer luck as he slid to territory no one expected.
