Brace yourself for the most awfully awful Melo trade proposal

Brace yourself for the most awfully awful Melo trade proposal

Let me preface this blog by saying I like Chris Sheridan. He’s covered the league for a long time and I trust/respect his reporting. But… in his latest column he recommends the Knicks trade Carmelo Anthony. A fair point. Sheridan offers two scenarios; Clippers and Celtics. Here’s where we get nuts: Wait, there’s more!

Report: Denver keeps rejecting Boston’s offers for Gallinari

Report: Denver keeps rejecting Boston’s offers for Gallinari

It appears Danny Ainge’s tactics with the Denver Nuggets for Danilo Gallinari resemble my dating approach in my early 20s: keep asking until they a) punch you  b) don’t take your calls or c) break down and say yes. The folks at Hoops Rumors piece together multiple reports: The Celtics have aggressively pursued a trade for [...]

Report: David Lee will be gone in a few weeks

Now that David Lee is completely out of the rotation, I don’t care much about his spot on the roster.
