The split was definitely coming. What's interesting is that they aren't just releasing him. Seems like they want to hold on to him as a potential trade chip for the off-season.


I think it is because they missed the window where they could release him and take a lesser cap hit. By trading him for a pick I am assuming they either want the pick or want to mitigate the cap hit that L.O. is going to cause.

Glad to see that Odom is gone because he has been a joke all season long. He stunk it up non stop, put out absolutely minimal effort all season, and then wondered why people booed him. I hope he comes back next year and sucks just as bad as he did this year. Brandan Wright is much more deserving of his playing time and shows every time he hits the court he wants to play for the Mavs and wants to show everyone he wasn't a lottery bust.

Celtics beat the Heat, 115-107. It was a really good game and the Celtics looked to be at top form. They'll play 5 in 6, meeting the Hawks at home tomorrow, a day of rest and then their lone B2B2B facing 3 basement dwellers.

Edit: Rondo's had 18 games with 10+ assists straight now too. He's leading the league with 11.2 per game.

I'm glad to see that the Cavs have finally found a PG to back-up Kyrie Irving to fill in the role left behind by Ramon Sessions. Lester Hudson's been a huge contributor with Kyrie out for a bit and he's been nearly as clutch as the guy he's been replacing, so I'm happy to see somebody taking advantage of the opportunity to show what they can do.

I actually went to jr. high with Hudson. I remember him because he was one of the few who could dunk. Last time I saw him was about two years ago in a Family Dollar. He was playing for the Grizzlies that season. I'm glad to see he is taking advantage of the opportunity given to him because he has taken a long road to where he is now.

Hey guys, what do you think the status quo of the 6th man? It's amazing to me how the role has changed. Look at how many former starters are coming off the bench: OJ Mayo, Zach Randolph, Ray Allen, and now the Knicks are contemplating Amare coming off the bench once he gets back!

Amare coming off the bench would probably be best for the Knicks actually. Have him replace Chandler and let him play 5. He's not as quick as he used to be and when he was kicking ass early last year.

Mayo/Randolph play for the same team. Both can't be 6th man. :D

C's won a grinder @ Home. One of the worst officiated of the year. Rondo managed to work up a Triple double (10pts. 10rebs. 20ast)

Put up or shut up. Players from all sports go through shit in a season, dude needs to stop being a bitch. He is getting paid to play a sport, if he can't play he needs to let his team know and suck it up. Hell they even let him leave for awhile before the all-star break to deal with his problems. Probably had to film more shows with his wife, lol. You say we don't know what we are talking about? You don't know shit.

There are those who said this day would never come. What are they to say now?

Lamarcus Aldridge is done for the season with hip surgery. Knowing the Blazers, they'll find a way to keep him re-injuring himself for the next three years before he decides to retire.

I don't see that this year honestly. The East and West standings are pretty equivalent for once. It's not the typical situation of recent years where the East has 2 or 3 teams with losing records in the playoffs.

As far as contenders I wouldn't be shocked to see the Bulls, Heat, Celtics or Magic (if they get healthy) get on a roll and win the east, or the Thunder, Lakers or Spurs win the West.

I think both sides of the playoffs should be very competitive this year as there isn't a clear dominate team, nor any sub .500 awful teams in the playoff picture.

This article does point out what everyone has known for a really long time, and that is you don't ever trust a Trail Blazer's doctor. Just ask Bill Walton. It really is a shame that their organization doesn't handle medical care like they should. Paul Allen should just buy out PHX's staff. Sarver is a cheapass so they probably could get them for a reasonable price.

Also, was Roy actually amnestied? I didn't think that they actually used the clause on him, but I see conflicting information online. I know he did the medical retirement, and I didn't think they amnestied him.

Edit: I guess he was. I didn't realize they cut him after he retired.

I guess I might have to find a new team to root for next year...

Sucks because right when we were starting to find an identity with Isaiah Thomas and Cousins, they back out of the deal.

Because 3 teams in Los Angeles is really a good idea. :roll:

Because the Charlotte Bobcats.

I went to today's Bobcats-Celtics game to be disappointed that Pierce and Garnett didn't even fly here. Oh well. During the 4th quarter a guy won 3 prizes (a gift bag, a signed team ball (LOL) and an iPad). He was given the choice of taking those prizes or giving everyone in attendance free tickets to tomorrow's game vs. the Hornets. Considering the fans told him loud and clear 'we don't want to see this shitty team 2 days in a row,' he abliged, but the team did not.

So I now have tickets to tomorrow's game vs. the Hornets where they try to set the team record for consecutive losses in a season (17), which they matched tonight. The other time they lost 16 games in a row during season? Earlier this season.

Magic just can't get a break on the injury front.

Hedo's out indefinitely with the facial fracture, Howard has a herniated disc rather than back spasms, and is also out indefinitely. Van Gundy said he's preparing for them both to be out the rest of the season.

And now Glen Davis sprained his knee yesterday.
