O'Neal has a groin tear, out minimum 8 weeks.
Which basically at this point means for the season.

I agree. You would think that a 26 year old would be more “mature” but I guess not.

as for peja, he's a great shooter, but he's a bit soft. when they had pre-injury weber and vlade, two excellent passing bigs, peja was in his glory... the kings would dump the ball inside, forcing the defense to collapse, and then kick it out to peja, who'd either shoot, or take advantage of the recovering defense with a one dribble pull up. once vlade left and weber got hurt, the kings tried going outside-in, relying more on peja... but of course peja's a pansy-ass, and he can't carry a team on his own, so the kings have stunk for the past two years.

but if jermaine o'neal is healthy, peja could see a revitaization over in idiana.


I do wish the best for Peja, he is one of the best shooters but when he’s on a team where he is not the “Go-to-guy,” Peja is more of an accessory on a team. At least that is what he was when Webber and Vlade were at Sac.

Now, if Artest can grow up and realize he needs to get it together he can make a huge difference. I mean last season Kings were 26th in the league in points allowed, just absolutely horrible. This season so far I believe they are 23rd. Kings are in desperate needs of some defense. With Artest on board he can possibly change that but again it’s up to Artest. I guess we're going to have to sit back and watch what he will do.

The NBA likely will launch a probe into allegations that Knicks President Isiah Thomas conspired to get opposing players drunk the night before games, sources told the Daily News.
The allegations, contained in a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by former Knicks Senior Vice President Anucha Browne Sanders, could be viewed as tampering - if Thomas had contact with opposing players.

Browne Sanders accused Thomas of working with concierges at hotels frequented by visiting teams to encourage opposing players to go to certain bars and strip clubs and get drunk the night before a day game.

An NBA spokesman said yesterday that the league is "monitoring the entire situation." But one league source said that while Thomas' alleged actions "seem highly unusual," they will probably be investigated. A Knicks spokesman said the team had no comment.

While the charges may seem insignificant, the NBA is very sensitive about the kinds of clubs its players frequent during their trips to New York and other major cities. Several years ago, the league endured a major scandal involving several prominent players, including the Knicks' Patrick Ewing, and strippers in the Gold Club in Atlanta.

Lonnie Hanover, a spokesman for Scores, wouldn't confirm if visiting players came to the East Side strip club mecca, saying only, "Athletes from every major sport love strip clubs, and you know where they go."

Teams found guilty of tampering are normally fined, with the amounts based on the severity of the infraction. In extreme cases of tampering, teams have even lost draft picks. "Who knows if there's anything really there," said one source.

Several general managers doubted Browne Sanders' accusations, because most players already know where to go for fun when they come to New York.

"I can't see Isiah being brazen enough to put his career in jeopardy," said an Eastern Conference executive. "We all know that there are serious consequences for tampering."
oh if this whole thing leads to isiah being fired...

MINNEAPOLIS -- The struggling Minnesota Timberwolves shook up their roster Thursday night, sending swingman Wally Szczerbiak to the Boston Celtics for guard Ricky Davis in an exchange involving seven players and three draft picks.

Davis, center Mark Blount, point guard Marcus Banks, forward Justin Reed and two conditional second-round draft picks are going to Minnesota. Boston is getting Szczerbiak, centers Michael Olowokandi and Dwayne Jones and a future first-round draft pick.

Guess the Wally-KG relationship became too tough to handle for Minnesota.

I hope Wally stays healthy.

So if Knicks' opponents are drunk and still regularly throttling the Knickerbockers, whats gonna happen now that Isiah can't get them hammered?

My brother told me this when he was home for Christmas...I thought it was funny and meant to post it here but forgot...I'm posting it now.

A friend of my older brother's is sort of sportswriter...nobody famous, you wouldn't know him. Anyway, he interviewed Dennis Rodman a few months ago and, afterward, he said to my brother about the interview: "I've never felt so white in my life".

Antonio Davis for Jalen Rose? Seriously?

If I had a dream, Isaiah would get fired and be picked up the by Kansas City Chiefs. If only . . .

but hey we get an extra 15 million on the cap next year now, and david lee will never play now... and we also get a first round pick! won't be a top 5 pick like the one we gave to chicago, but hey... it's a start!




the knicks are a disaster, and the clippers are 11 games over .500. just kill me now.

a positve post about desagna diop... haha... that makes me laugh.

almost like watching the knicks makes me laugh... or cry... or sometimes both.




bill "don't call me hewson" simmons sums it up nicely...
Quote:
The Bobcats have 13 wins and the Knicks have 14 wins. According to hoopshype.com, Charlotte's 2005-06 payroll is $33.4 million, while New York's payroll is $125.9 million. Not including team options on younger players, Charlotte has $21.8 million in guaranteed salaries committed for 2007; $14.2 million committed in 2008; and $0.0 million in 2009. New York's guaranteed money looks like this: $110.3 million (2007); $49 million (2008); and $45 million (2009). Also, the Bobcats kept all their first-round picks through the decade, while New York gives Chicago its 2006 lottery pick and switches first-rounders with the Bulls in 2007 (with the Knicks getting the lower pick).

To recap: For that one extra win, the Knicks spent four times as much money, killed their cap flexibility through 2009 and gave away any chance of having a top-five pick in the next two years. On the bright side, Eddy Curry has gained enough weight this season that he might start wearing jackets to cover his rear end during games, kinda like how Oprah dresses when she's in the middle of one of her eating binges. So that will be fun.

(God bless the Isiah Era. We'll be talking about this for decades. I really believe that.)

Beginning of the year it would make me laugh too, but the fact is since benching Damp and starting Diop, the Mavs are on the second best tear in team history.

Damp seems suited to come off the bench. He's not picking up two quick personals in the first few minutes and getting discouraged.

Say what you will about him, he's been a force on the offensive glass lately.

Headache, Mavs/Knicks round 2 next week.
