Brandon Roy is not a max player, sorry Portland fans I understand you may be upset as Roy has contributed to the team’s current success greatly, but with all those great young players to re-sign I guarantee you this is the beginning of the end for Portland


However the Blazers got great value for Andre Miller and his leadership will rub off on the other Blazers.


Ron Artest's phone number 832-260-8192 if you want to talk to him for whatever reason, I’m sure he’ll change it soon but for now call away.


Apparently the Grizzlies have one of the toughest schedules in the NBA while the Cavilers, and the Magic have the easiest how does this make ANY sense?


Rashard Lewis has been suspended. So what? It was only a matter of time anyways before someone got caught again the NBA, and we thought jumping eleven feet in the air was natural?


Marvin Williams will be re-signing with the Hawks, congrats Hawks fans looks like your management team stopped fighting long enough to sign a good young player and another piece of the foundation for the Hawks continued resurgence.


Russell Westbrook spent his summer working on his vertical, anything that will help him shoot better works for me.


Kurt Rambis apparently is a finalist for the Minnesota coaching position, what David Kahn couldn’t get Lenny Wilkens to commit?


Seattle fans have not given up in their attempt to get the NBA back to Seattle apparently James Donaldson represents the best chance to make that happen.


The Grizzlies apparently are one of the few teams in the NBA to actually make money, who knew Owner Michael Heisley could run a profitable franchise?


Allen Iverson remains unsigned; ‘the answer’ has turned into the question regarding his declining skill set, and prima-dona attitude.


Al Harrington apparently doesn’t like Don Nelson, Congrats Harrington you’ve got a lifetime pass to NBA employment to the Dallas Mavericks!


Lebron wants to wait until next year to decide his future, no surprise have you ever had that girlfriend\wife\boyfriend\husband that was indecisive? That is what Lebron is and, no it’s not necessary.


Ben Wallace is contemplating a move back to Detroit, albeit over 60 million dollars richer, this is the way to go home in style.


Carlos Boozer is a disgrace to the NBA. Never have I seen someone who believed he was better than he actually was. I sympathize with Boozer’s children’s health which was pretty terrible a couple years ago but to openly campaign for a trade the Jazz were already working on only lowers his value and makes the situation even more toxic than it needs to be. When the Grizzlies want Zack Randolph instead of you it’s a cue to keep quiet


Paul Shirley is one of the more interesting people I have ever read about, while his NBA career may be over, Paul’s sense of humor and willingness to report injustices, and try new things keep me coming back.


Derrick Rose believes that not saying anything will make situations go away, Derrick as a leader and face of a franchise you need to understand you will be held more accountable than most people because of who you are, get it grip and grow up.


Lastly Jerry Stackhouse is working out for the Knicks, for all the drama and problems Stackhouse has cause over his 14 years in the NBA, his longevity cannot be questioned nor can his willingness to sacrifice in the name of the team. Can you imagine what could have happened had he learned these lessons in Philly?
