Thats too one sided, even if the T'wolves take on the human gun collection.
At this point, Jefferson is not too far from being Garnett...I would not make that trade.

Jefferson is not too far from being Garnett?

Yes, he is very far away from being Garnett.

He's probably one of the best young big guys in the East and he's definitely a better offensive player than Dwight Howard.

I like the multi team trade scenarios that end with Gilbert Arenas in LA. Never, ever going to happen, but would be cool.

That's the sort of thing I'd imagine the Lakers going for though. They're not exactly a 'rebuilding' or 'youth' franchise. I think they'd want nothing short of at least one Grade A level star in return, not a bunch of 'pieces'.

I think that would be great for the Celts, though not likely to happen.
Have to give the Lakers at least the #5 pick and another young player (Rondo, Green, or West probably) plus puncture wound for therapist. And I doubt the Lakers would even take that deal.

Yes, he is very far away from being Garnett.
Last year:
Garnett: 22.4 PPG, 12.8 RPG, 1.7 BPG
Jefferson: 16.0 PPG 11.0 RPG 1.5 BPG

So statistically 7 points and 2 boards away, however the key stat:
KG is 31, AJ is 22.
This season Jefferson's stats will be closer to Garnett's as he improved his offensive game by a lot 2nd half of last season.

I would expect 18-19PPG and 11-12 RPG, not much less than Garnett's numbers, but he's 9 years younger and on the upswing. Garnett has 11 NBA seasons under his legs and is not going to get any better, in fact I doubt he'll sustain his current level of play for more than 3 or 4 more seasons whereas as you should get 10-12 solid seasons from Jefferson.

I'm not sure if I like the Amare/KG trade either, but with KG on Phoenix, I don't think toughness will be an issue, but they'd only have a 2-3 year window before Nash AND KG start breaking down.

Based on how much he's improved lately, I wouldn't let go of Jefferson, either.

so yet again, tell me why we lose to greece? ahh yes...

For the second straight year, USC basketball coach Tim Floyd has received a verbal commitment from an eighth-grader.

Ryan Boatwright, a speedy 5-foot-10, 145-pound rising freshman point guard from Illinois who has yet to make a decision on where he's headed for high school (he's choosing between East Aurora High and West Aurora High), accepted Floyd's scholarship offer while at USC's camp this past weekend.
"They were the first one to show interest in Ryan," said Boatwright's father, Mike. "A lot of people have said Ryan isn't that good, but he went to USC's camp and played well."

Boatwright played well enough that Floyd put forth a scholarship offer on the final day of camp. DePaul, Indiana and a few smaller schools had expressed interest, but USC was the first to step up with an offer.

"It shocked me," Mike Boatwright said of the offer. "But Ryan loved it there and he decided on his own."

"The campus is gorgeous," he added. "It's a private school and both myself and his mom were impressed with the academic standards at USC. That's really what got us."

A year ago, Floyd and the Trojans staff stayed local and got a verbal pledge from then-14-year-old Dwayne Polee Jr., a 6-foot-6 forward who had yet to play his first high school game at Westchester High (Calif.).

Mike Boatwright said the biggest concern surrounding his 14-year-old son's decision is the potential local reaction.

"I'm tremendously concerned," he admitted. "It could get ugly as far as kids getting jealous. I also don't want it to get to his head. I want him to stay humble."
