    Lakers just traded Gasol and Odom for CP3. Have to think they close to Howard also? They can't be confident with Metta and Bynum

    I sure hope you're right. I hate that trade if they don't get Howard.

    I'm afraid that Orlando would ask for more than just Bynum now. They have more leverage since they know the Lakers need help in the front court.

    Howard can just walk tho, if they are too stingy they will just end up with nothing.


    EDIT: I guess the trade has been blocked now. wtf

    Man I think the NBA doesn't want Chris Paul out of New Orleans. This is the third time that a trade for him fell through.

    They might as well let NO get something, if it keeps getting nixed CP is just going to not play and eventually just walk. I am surprised he has not spoken out about it yet. I would be pissed.

    CP3 is trying to play the nice guy. He knows no matter what he's going somewhere by July of 2012 but I know he's biting his tongue right now.

    I hope the clippers trade for CP3 goes through. I would love to see him play along side Blake Griffin.

    Ah well now that CP3 and David West are gone it's not looking good for my Hornets.
    :( . I guess it's only a matter of time before someone buys the team an most likely moves it.
    It was good while it lasted, but New Orleans is a football city, always has been. The Saints own this city.

    So, are you guys following the playoffs? Favorites?
    My guess:
    West
    Spurs wins Utah, OKC wins Dallas, Lakers wins Denver, Memphis wins Clippers

    East
    Bulls wins 76ers, Miami wins NYK, Pacers wins Magic, Atlanta wins Boston

    Conference finals will be between OKC vs. Memphis and Bulls vs. Heat. Finals will be between Chicago and Memphis and Chicago will win the rings.

    Miami is playing great basketball but I believe that Chicago's defense will carry them over Miami. In the west Spurs are great but I think that Memphis has a serious chance of upsetting them. They are deep and they have great big men. One of the only teams that really has two good players in each spot. They just need to focus more in late game situations and they will do great.

    I know the Bulls have played well without D. Rose before but I don't think they'll make it through Miami. I'm thinking it'll be Miami and San Antonio in the finals. San Antonio will win in seven.

    Miami plays great but they lack in two of the most important positions, PG and C. That will cost them. Many consider it a great asset to have a guy like LeBron who can defend every position but if your team HAS to use him to guard every position it really isn't too great news for the other players. Bulls are deep, Bulls are wide. Deng should be able to limit LeBron to seemingly ordinary 20pts, 5reb 5ast games and that is all you need. Wade will have his hands full running with Hamilton and Bosh actually is more like a oversize SF than a true big man. He will not stop Boozer and Noah. Bulls have great coach and a amazing playbook, defensively and offensively. Miami has two of the greatest players currently in the league but I really cannot see them winning Bulls 4 times before losing the same. Spurs are a whole different ballpark. They are deep and play great basketball. All of this is of course only my own opinion.. :D

    I think the Spurs is gonna win it all. They look unstoppable.

    Only the Celtics has a slight chance to stop Miami in the east.

    I still think MIA will make it to the finals even with the lack of a PG or C. Lacking a true Center to win the East is not as relevant since Dwight Howard isn't playing. Miami's biggest threat is the Celtics now. They are playing really well and who knows if Lebron will fold under pressure again.

    However, I do agree that lacking a PG and C will definitely hurt them when/if they make it to the finals. The top three Western conference teams have great big men so it'll definitely be a challenge for MIA. MIA's half court offense is definitely weaker than their transition game.

    Should be a fun playoffs to watch especially the Western conference.

    The Spurs will win this year. If not, The Thunder will. They are really good this year.
