I liked Farmar...

I hope they don't trade Shannon. He's really starting to get good.

And sorry if this has been mentioned already (I don't keep up with this thread), but is Derek Fisher really looking at the Heat??

From ESPN;
LeBron Meets Fisher at Airport
LeBron James has gone from recruited to recruiter, according to ESPNLosAngeles.com's Ramona Shelburne. Miami's newest free agent went out of his way to meet Lakers free agent Derek Fisher, hoping to convince the five-time NBA champion to join the Heat. It was a short meeting as James was on his way to New York to attend Denver star Carmelo Anthony's wedding, while Fisher was on his way to meet with Heat presdient Pat Riley and team owner Mickey Arison.

I actually lost all respect for Farmar when I saw him interact (Or lack of) with fans at Staples. His demeanor was horrible and he was unapproachable, just like Kareem.
No big loss.

Oh really? Sucks to hear that about Farmar. Was a good player

As for Fisher- WHAAAAAAAAAAT? The Heat can go fall in a hole.

Aside from the Heat, I want to applaud the Bulls but why the fuck did they trade Hinrich?

I didn't see the sense there.

They traded him to clear his contract from the cap, just in case they had an opportunity for two maxes.

Hinrich wasn't that good anyway, and he was getting paid way too much to be the second best PG on the team, and we couldn't go forward with him as the starting SG. We have more flexibility now, and that's good.

No worries, I don't think they have doctors in Miami.

I'm going to enjoy rooting against the Heat.

This is a nightmare scenario in which I'm happy for the Lakers. I think I'm going to ignore the NBA Playoffs in 2011, just focus on the Sixers and that be it.

Just call him Timothy Hutton, cause that was all about leverage.

Sorry.

Sorry.
So for the next 4-5 years, are other players going to flirt with going to the Heat as a way to get better deals elsewhere? I think so, and Fisher was but one example.

And, he was making something like 9 million dollars to score 10 ppg.

Mark my words...You are going to be very happy with Blake on your team. You won't even remember Farmar

Funny that Kobe is going to meet with Raja Bell in an attempt to bring him here. Hopefully no clotheslines this time.

I would guess that would mean goodbye to Shannon though?

If Lebron actively recruited some cat that knocked him on his ass a few years, Laz would be calling him every name in the book. That's a fact.

Remember, Kobe and Artest got into it on the court mere months before Artest's signing with LA. That worked out pretty well.

I'm just tryin to buy this J.J. Redick jersey real quick.

Oh, do not misunderstand me.....I agree that Kobe should recruit whoever he likes....just saying that if a non-Laker, especially Lebron, recruited former nemeses, Laz would call him a bitch, etc.
