ourbigdumbmouth: It's Ok, this gives Jason Kidd a chance to finally get his day in the spot light.

The police cruiser's spot light?

It must be tough for an Asian player to be naked in a NBA lockerroom.

I don't get why people are shiatting on the Rockets giving Asik 5m/5m/15m which actually translates to a little over 8m for three seasons. Asik is a great defender (statistically something like 95th percentile in pick and roll defense by points allowed per possession) and plays hard. 8m for a center that does that and can protect the rim is a reasonable contract.

Criticism of offering Lin that much is warranted; however, the Rockets have been basically the best team in the NBA at identifying and developing relatively unheard of PGs over the past 3-4 seasons. I'll give them a pass on this one if they think Lin can pass muster.

Also the Knicks are a terribly run franchise and James Dolan should feel bad at night before he goes to sleep.

I wonder what Carmelo's thoughts are on the $65MM his buddy Amare will be making over the next 3 years.

A 6'10" power forward whose game is built around athleticism who is no longer athletic.

Levarien: True. However, Melo, Stoudamire, Chandler alone exceed the salary cap in year 3.

Amare's unmovable and without Chandler their defense is awful. They could try to move Melo but he'd throw a shiatfit if he weren't in New York so I don't know if anyone would want to trade for him either.

I think they used their amnesty already, too.

Don't worry 'Melo. You'll still get your money, all the attention, except when you're losing, then everyone should get it, and Stephen A. Smith will slob your knob on national TV every night. Don't worry about winning, you've got it all.
