    I think Billups will retire. That subtracts $14M from the cap. They need a big ... Tyson Chandler, for example ... that can run, block shots and rebound. And obviously they'll need a point guard.

    It'd be nice if Landry Fields would show up. I mean, he didn't get traded to Denver, but his game still left town.
    I heard Jay Mohr say that Fields plays five minutes and then D'Antoni puts him in a car and sends him home.

    If Amare and Billups can return Friday I think Knicks win that one. Then if they can win the Sunday game its a series again. If not, well, they were always a one and out this year anyway. They need that one more player to beat the big boys. Who that player is though I have no idea.
    I thought Chris Paul was wearing Knickerbocker pajamas at this point?

    Re: NBA Playoffs Thread 2011:

    Paul is a free agent in 2012. I think the Knicks make a move before that, i.e. next year. I mean, in theory, it would be great to hold the money and then go for Howard or CP3 or Deron Williams (no way he stays with Nets, IMO) but even if you save that money there is no guarantee any of those three make it to 2012 as free agents. And if they do then maybe the Lakers free up cash, or the Celtics, or Howard stays and convinces CP3 to join him, etc.

    So I think they make some kind of move for next year.

    An amazing comeback today by the Blazers and Brandon Roy. Down 23 with 30 seconds left in the 3rd quarter, and Roy puts them on his shoulders like it was 2008 and he had knees once again.

    Re: NBA Playoffs Thread 2011:

    This just in..

    The Thunder are a dangerous team.

    San Antonio is in deep trouble.

    The Lakers have no answer for Westbrook.

    If they (The Thunder) keep it up, who in the West is going to derail them?

    My money is still on Bynum and Gasol. Kendrick Perkins will help but it won't be enough.

    I think we're going to see a Heat vs Thunder finals.

    That might be the first ever finals without an "S"

    San Antonio will (would?) be in trouble playing the Thunder in the next round.

    Most Spurs fans would definitely prefer seeing them in the Finals instead of the #2 and #3 seeds in the West.

    Not a good night to be a Lakers, Reds and an Amazing Race Cowboys fan.

    Re: NBA Playoffs Thread 2011:

    Nobody has put up stats like Chris Paul did in a playoff game the way Paul did tonight since Oscar Robertson back in 1962.

    The referees have helped OKC quite a lot in this series. Denver got screwed more than once (as have the Pacers as that series should be tied).
