Dwight Howard is Bill Russell on steroids, no... on speed, no... on crack.

The Boston Celtics are the front-runner to land Memphis center Pau Gasol. The Celtics are dangling talented young forward Al Jefferson and several draft picks. Memphis is desperately trying to cut costs.

something about kevin durant doesn't sit well with me... i, too, think he'll come out after this year... but he shouldn't. he's not ready. guards need more time to develop in college than big men. oden is ready. durant should stay at least one more year. if he comes out too soon i don't think he'll ever tap his full potential.

i would get a chuckle if danny ainge made a very isiah like move and traded away his shot in the oden sweepstakes for pao gasol, a nice player, don't get me wrong, but not someone who can carry a franchise.

it would certainly be a good swan song for The Logo.

100% agreement. He's a great player right now in college no doubt. But I hope he stays at least one more year.

My dad and I were watching it, then rewound it with TiVo, and still couldn't find where he hurt himself.
Some flop:

NEW YORK, Jan. 30, 2007 – Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers has been suspended one game without pay for striking San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili in the face, it was announced today by Stu Jackson, NBA Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations.
The incident occurred on Sunday, Jan. 28 with 2.7 remaining in the fourth period of the Lakers 96-94 (OT) loss to the Spurs at Staples Center. Bryant will serve his suspension tonight when the Lakers play the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.

Everything about him sits well with me, but, I wholeheartedly agree that he should stay at least one more year. So much easier to develop while playing 34 minutes a game in college than playing 8 minutes a game in the NBA. Durant needs work, like any 18 year old does. But he should be very good. I do not think Oden is ready, based on the 2 games I've watched, but, he's not far off either.....

KLAC 570 in L.A. just had Kobe Bryant phone in on their radio show. He said no one was arguing the "elbow or arm" at the game (I was there). And no one knows how this got to even be a question of suspension. It's ridiculous.

It seemed too good to be true

Oh well, good to see someone snatch The Mamba.

Oh I agree man, I was just making an Office joke. But if he resembles any player, I think it's Bill Russell.

So then I take it you don't think Chicago should trade away their piece in the oden sweepstakes(swap option w/NYK) for Gasol either? In Chicago, Gasol would be more the last piece in a puzzle than a guy meant to carry the whole team on his shoulders.

I dunno, I think The Logo is asking for too much for Gasol. I've heard rumors stating that he wants one of Gordon or Deng, PLUS one of Hinrich, Nocioni, Tyrus, or Thabo.

At this point, I think I'd rather include the pick in a Gasol trade than Deng or Gordon...they've both been playing veeeery well.

My ideal package would be: Tyrus, PJ Brown, Duhon, NYK Pick(Top 2 Protected) FOR Gasol.

And Kobe should be fired up at the Garden tonight after being suspended and unable to play in the Garden last night.
Go Kobe.
