    Didn't Rudy move to Mallorca? If he's still playing he's probably too busy chasing tail on the beach to care to return the call.

    Plan B? I think they past that a long time ago. I predict the Blazers are really scrambling to find upgrades.

    In light of Marc Steins tweet that the Bucks would have to move Greg Monroe to get D Wade. Making the trade for Monroe who is 26 opposed to signing Pau Gasol who is going to be 36 would make much more sense. I hope the GM is thinking in these terms rather than in the terms of being the in panic mode and signing Pau just to sign him. Kind of like what he did with Evan.

    Not sure what the Spurs are waiting for, they aren't getting Durant. They might as well sign Pau already

    Have we really offered Pau 2/$40M? Neil has gone off the rails. He better have some magic up his sleeve that he uses by the Trade Deadline or my opinion of him will have gone down the drain.

    I would rather have a young Aldrich who is showing improvement over the years than a guy who is on the downhill side of his career, especially at one third the salary.

    This always seems a little ridiculous to me when people think this way. The fans LOVED Rudy and Sergio. We have a great fan base that cheered the hell out of them. People seem to think the ability to form a reasonable thought from an NBA player is absent, and that they would somehow assume that their experience next year, with Damian, CJ, Terry, Neil, etc. would be the exact same that Rudy and Sergio experienced 7, 8 years ago with Nate McFuckstick. Seriously?

    Gasol would only be here for two years, at least with Monroe you would have a year to convince him to stay.

    He'd opt out and we'd have no bird rights.
