Your Morning Dump… Where CARMELO predicts ‘The Leap’ for Marcus Smart (no, not that Carmelo, a different one)

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

Also, Houston is trying to get into the 1st round and is offering Patrick Beverley — Frank Isola (@FisolaNYDN) June 23, 2016 The Celtics [...]

Bulls send Derrick Rose to the Knicks

Derrick Rose was once the league’s biggest phenom. He was so good the league basically created a mechanism that would throw transcendent talents like him even more than the most money possible.
