    So the Pacers are rumored to be signing Andrew Bynum right now. Not sure how he fits, but nice to know he won't be irritating me as another team signed him.

    Well worth the risk.

    Ian Mahinmi is a decent backup, but if Bynam is motivated -- he has to realize that this likely his last chance, especially with a chance to at least reach the Finals -- this is a definite roster upgrade.

    Mahinmi cannot do this to second units.

    That could be it right there. Sign him so no one else can have him. Gives Hibbert a break too.

    The NBA really knows how to put on an All Star game. The entertainment was great (Pharrell was awesome and I can't believe how many cool things he has been a part of). The game was the Skills Competition, 3 Point Shootout, and Dunk Contest all in one. It was a fun three hours.

    Am I missing something here? This three-way trade makes no sense to me.

    Denver sends Andre Miller to Washington.
    Washington sends Jan Vesely to Denver.
    Washington sends Eric Maynor to Philadelphia
    Washington sends a second-round pick to Philadelphia.
    Denver sends a second-round pick to Philadelphia.

    So, Philadelphia gets two second-round picks and Eric Maynor for nothing as far as I can tell.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    That is definitely the way it reads Dave. Pretty dang odd for sure.
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.

    Must be that the 2nd round picks were compensation for taking on Maynor's contract. Denver valued Vesely as worth a 2nd rounder and Miller.

    I just took a look at the 2013 rookie performances so far and compared them to past years draft class' rookie performances and yeesh. Most of these dudes are pitiful.

"If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    As a whole, true. However, IMO, any one of this upcoming draft's stars will be hard-pressed to make as large of an immediate impact as Michael Carter-Williams and Victor Oladipo have, so far. And don't forget that Nerlens Noel hasn't yet suited up at all.

    Oh yeah, I think MCW and HomeDepot are showing a lot and are going to be damn good players, but even then, so far they don't reach recent rookie performances like Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard, Andre Drummond, or even Terrence Jones.

    Drummond, in particular, continues to prove several GM's wrong. To our Credit, Texasdave and myself felt that he should have gone much higher than he did, so give credit where credit is due.
