Pre-All Star Photo Gallery

That's David Stern taking the opportunity to molest Paul Pierce as he and Shaq plant a tree in Phoenix.  I mean honestly Mr. Stern.  To cup Paul's left breast like that is abhorrent. You know.  You could have just tried a bottle of wine and some flowers.  Maybe he would have said yes.  Freak. More... [More]

Cavs + Amare = Title?

Looks like the Cavs are making a run at Amare: Cleveland general manager Danny Ferry offered the expiring contract of Wally Szcerbiak, rookie J.J. Hickson and a first-round pick for Stoudemire earlier in the week, sources said. Anderson Varejao was mentioned in a possible scenario too, sources said. Stoudemire on the Cavs scares me.
