...Yea, Isiah said he didn't want to take on another contract without sending one towards Denver. Hey, you guys could use some interior toughness...Jerome James?



It was funny at the time...now it's even funnier.

Kirk Hinrich has been added to the Team USA roster, replacing JJ Redick (back injury).

The Nuggs turned down Stevie Franchise for K-Mart? That is ludicrous.

Steve Francis may not be that highly rated anymore, but he can still ball. He just needs a change of scenery. When he was in Houston he was a perennial all-star who led his team to numerous playoff appearances. Just two seasons ago he was 20 pt, 5 rebound, and 7 assist guy. Now, he stinks? I think he has become disenchanted with his stops in Orlando and New York and quite frankly, who wouldn't be. Orlando was rebuilding and the Knicks are simply a mess. Put Franchise on a playoff team and all his warts go away. Keep him in a losing situation with no defined role and he is the devil.

Miller, Franchise, Nene, Camby and Melo can make some noise in this league. You guys should have made that move.

**** Steve Francis. I'd only take him because he's just slightly less of a jerkoff than Kenyon Martin and the Nuggets could use a guard more than a forward at this point. I'd take that deal if it was the last available, but obviously it isn't and the Nuggets don't have to.

They're looking for an answer elsewhere......

It might not and I'm still pretty doubtful about it (there have been far too many instances over the last couple of years in which the Nuggets almost made a blockbuster move). But word is that they're trying real, real hard to land him. Stranger things have happened.

I'd rather have Francis simply because we're froncourt-loaded, and 2-guard light, esp. w/o Buckner.

That said, I don't think even Isiah would make that offer.

I want to use this thread to apologize to some of you guys. RO50, Nuggets4, Ryhmesayers, Clockwork Orange, and a couple of others. I was rude and incongenial at times during the NBA playoffs. I had alot going on in the real world and some of the things that happened just exacerbated the situation for me.

I hope you guys enjoy the offseason.

No hard feelings at all. I was rude at times too.

I hope everything is ok w/ you in the real world.

Mavs are a great team and I have never disputed that and I think they have made some good moves so far in the offseason. I'm high on Maurice Ager.

I think his intent is more plugging the Celts offer of a bunch of young guys than shoring up any deficiencies in a Denver offer.

Some good news for the Celts fans.

Pierce agrees to a three year extension.

Now some not so good news for the Celts fans. From the same article:

The C's are still very hot on the trail of Allen Iverson, but, according to a source yesterday, the 76ers have some other strong options in the marketplace.

The latest court ruling that Atlanta now can acquire and sign players to deals of longer than one year may have opened a key avenue for Philadelphia as far as facilitating a deal.

It was also confirmed yesterday that the Celtics already may have been able to do an Iverson deal had they not sent the No.7 pick in June's draft to Portland as part of the Sebastian Telfair trade. The Sixers were very high on Villanova guard Randy Foye, who was taken by the Trail Blazers at No.7. However, Minnesota probably would have plucked Foye at No.7 if it didn't have a deal in place with Portland or if there was a chance of Foye getting away.

One guy on the Nugs board I post on said that he heard the following on the radio:

"Less than 15 minutes ago, 570AM reported that Denver has stepped away from the GS/ATL 3-way trade idea because it is now in serious talks with Philly for Iverson"

Blah, blah, blah...

I wonder how all these radio stations get the inside scoop before everybody else? In Boston they were doing the same thing. Three different radio stations speculated three different offers the Celtic's presented Philly for Iverson on draft night.

Rumors help pay the bills!

Looks like the Suns won't get their man after all.

76ers agree to sign & trade Salmons to Toronto.

Solid career move for Salmons...

Toronto over Phoenix? Yikes. Toronto must've really upped the offer...

According the boys in Philly, the trade exception money is 3.6 million and must be used this year. Could be a prelude to moving Iverson.

Obviously you're planning on devoting an entire thread to your apology to me and you're still trying to find the right words. I understand completely. In fact, don't even bother, Llama. Since I'm the bigger man I'm going to release you from the moral obligation of apologizing to me publicly.

You can PM me if you're more comfortable with private supplication.
