    wow...time flies....Rudy is 39

    his Portland days were kind of a hot time for Spanish players in the NBA: Rudy-Sergio-Calderon-Rubio

    They also had these Gasol brothers. Whatever happened to them? ;)

    Certainly not now. If I was Redick I would think long and hard about $$$ before taking that job. Dude just turned them down with a $70 million offer.
    How much should Redick command?

    Actually come to think of it that Lakers coaching job might not be a bad deal?
    Make them pay you extra because it’s the Lakers and LeBron is there.
    Then let LeBron get you fired the first year and just soak up the rest of the contract.
    Perfect!

    The then Ron Artest said the same thing. He was asked "what about Kobe" and he just repeated Brandon Roy.

    (No weaknesses in his game - shame about the weaknesses in his knees.)

    This part does not make sense to me:

    "They continue to show zero interest in trading him and would like to build around him and another star"

    Doesn't it need to be one way or the other?
