Reports say the Knicks are looking to trade Randolph and Curry, that the 'Randolph' experiment is a failure.

But that was without Garnett, which bears noting.

it wouldn't be a bad thing if all three of the above-average sized three took some time off with "injury" before the playoffs began.

Sources: Mavericks, Nets closing in on Kidd deal

Sources told ESPN.com that talks between the Mavericks and Nets, which had seemingly stalled, grew serious after the teams played Sunday night in New Jersey and have moved them to the brink of completing the NBA's third blockbuster deal of the month.

Although sources say that the teams are still sorting out final details, this deal was described as "imminent" by one source close to the process after negotiations moved to an advanced stage Tuesday night. The proposed swap -- salvaged from talks of a three-way trade with Portland that developed and fizzled quickly two weeks ago -- would require Dallas to send 24-year-old point guard Devin Harris, veteran swingman Jerry Stackhouse, the expiring contracts of center DeSegana Diop and swingman Devean George and another player such as guard Maurice Ager to New Jersey for Kidd and possibly veteran guard Darrell Armstrong. It's believed that Dallas would also send New Jersey cash and future draft considerations.



Ugh.

if one thought the eastern conference couldn't possibly get any shittier, this past month has proven once and for all that yes, it can get shittier.

Stackhouse will probably be bought out and re-signed by the Mavs soon anyway, but that's about half their roster - it's not like they'd do much with that team in place anyway.

The playoffs are about 8-man rotations. The Mavs still have a solid 8-man rotation after this trade, even a 9-man rotation if they re-sign Stackhouse. That bench is solid, and Kidd can make guys like Dampier and Juwon Howard and Jason Terry look better than they are. This is a trade that is clearly being made(if it gets done) to give the team a better chance to 'win now' while Dirk is still in his prime.

Dampier/Juwon Howard
Nowitzki/Brandon Bass
Howard/Eddie Jones
Terry/Jerry Stackhouse
Kidd

I'm glad Stack will probably be back, but they got rid of a blossoming 24 year old point guard in the midst of a very impressive breakout season and a certified Duncan-stopper.

This makes the window of opportunity so much smaller. But we'll see if it pays off.

The Mavs have lacked the mental toughness and great decisions that Kidd has in spades. I hope they come in handy. They probably match up better with every team now. Well, except one. The Spurs.

I'm utterly flabbergasted still. Like the Shaq trade, this could spell either championship or a return to the mediocrity of the 90s.


Okay, it might not be as bad as the 90s.

Well, Juwon is on their roster according to nba.com...that's what I was going off of. I don't watch many Mavs games.

Theoretical playoff rotation:

Kidd/JJ Barea
Eddie Jones/Jason Terry (could even slide him over to point at times if need be, although I hate him there)
Josh Howard/Stack (assuming he comes back)
Dirk/Brandon Bass
Damp/ ____________

If those backup PG and C holes get filled by anyone remotely competent, I'll stop professing doom. I still want a 2 like a Mike Miller, too. But whatever. I'll see how I feel about this after watching a few games.

Juwan Howard is a non-factor in this equation. As much of one as Nick Fazekas.






Edit: That's my first Roy Tarpley sighting in awhile. Thank you.

^thanks for finally spelling my boy Juwan's name the correct way.

Roy Tarpley went to Michigan too...

And I'm still not convinced that Harris is a starting point guard anyway. It happens all the time, some good backup point guard leaves his team to start on another team and doesn't play as well.

What I mean is, he's in a situation like Howard Eisley. Everybody loved the guy. All talk was on how when Stockton retired, he would take over. And...how many of us remember him as a starter? Great backup to Stockton, but when he had to actually start, he wasn't as good.

Just my take.

Well the WC playoffs will be hotly contested, hopefully leaving the finalist bloodied, battered and drained and easy pickings for the Celts.

I'm convinced Devin Harris and Jameer Nelson are the same person.

The Magic really need to trade Pat Garrity and Carlos Arroyo's expiring contracts and pick up a tough banger with playoff experience to put next to Dwight Howard. Kurt Thomas would be perfect, methinks... Adonal Foyle won't do the trick.

Getting rid of a guard will maybe free up space in the rotation for J.J. Redick to play someday... who knows?
