NBA Trades, signing and new looks
Lakers: the Lakers signed Vladimir Radmanovich which will be good for Kobe and Odom, since he can spaced the floor with his three point shot. Farmar is good since he is a true point guard, look for him to out Smush from his starting job. Evans is grind out type defender.
Bulls: signed Ben Wallace, they picked Thomas in the draft. Plus a trade in the works with the Hornets. Look for the Bulls to be one of the top teams in the east next year
Orlando; this by far will be the most surprising team in the east, They got the best young dominant in the league in dwight howard. They Darko who nobody thought could or even bother to play for that matter and now he's proving people wrong. They Got Jameer nelson who was passed on for players like Telfair, Smith(both of them), Childress... And now he is proving to be really good point and at making decision, Even Steve francis was jealous of his rise. They signed JJ reddick who i thin is a better shooter than Michael Redd, with his streaky shooting, look for him to avg 15-20 ppg. Last year the magics was the hottest team at the end of the season, they beat about everyteam in the league.
Hornets: they got a shooter like Peja who will go really well with chirs Paul, plus they have a new star in PF David West.
Mavs: same team as last year, look for the same dominance.
Miami: i don't know about this team, it's full of old man. Till' today i question Pat Riley's ext of shaq's contract for 100 mil over five years. Shaq is 34 years old right and eating a lot of cap room, now they about to sign dwayne wade to a max contract, and boom there goes the CAP. Antoine walker who stinks as much as he gets hot. Williams is an enigma. This team doesn't have any future.
Detroit: losing ben, no matter how you put it, is a real blow to that team, he is the heart and soul of the pistons. Can't blame for leaving, last time i checked 60 mil is more than 48 mil.
Suns: The emergence of their bench and supporting cast in the playoffs and in the reg season was good and bad for them. They will command more money, if they are going to sign most of them, they'll have to trade Marion. Thomas is already gone.
Knicks??? They'll be the laughing stock of the League next year, Isaiah has nothing to show for his 120 mil payroll. I still think "star"burry is overrrated. Plus you team him up with Francis???? it's like having two left legs.
Cavs: I sure don't blame Lebron for waiting before signing his ext contract, he didn't rush like carmelo and wade. He might be thinking that he doesn't want to end up like KG who spent 10 years with a team, showing them loyalty while they have made no significant move to progress. they made one steap forward and five steps back. If i was Lebron i wouldn't sign a five ext with the cavs, probably a two-year ext.
Indianna: what the hell happened to that team?? they went from contender to not even be a pretender. They have nothing to show for the Ron Artest trade. Peja didn't even bother resigning with him
Toronto: Hopefully less suck.
Now, if you hadn't left out every other important word in your sentences, I might have understood you.
Golden State: Trades Derek Fisher for three guards. Good trade, but worthless at the same time. If they're strong at any position, it'd be at guard. They need to get a big man. Badly.
And that my friend is a bunch of bull. If you really think so you know nothing.

PJ Brown is quickly fading and wasn't too bright to begin with, but I agree that the Bulls will be a force to be reckoned with this year. Not only are their players good, but they're also YOUNG.
So they lost Eddie Curry, but they got Ben Wallace as a replacement. Ben Wallace is perhaps 8 times better than Eddie Curry.
The Bulls will do better. Perhaps not a championship team but a contender. Ben Wallace might be better but he's no offensive juggernaut. I guess Scott Styles will leave that to his young players like Ben Gordon and Andres Nocioni.
I want the Nets to do something. Get some bench players or something.
sorry to be the needle in the side but im more concerned about the new Stadium they want to build over the Atlantic Rail Yards when they try to move the Nets from Jersey to Brooklyn... so the draft and the 07 season are the least of my concerns
I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

New York is indeed the mecca of sports. It's the only city that has two teams for all major sports:
nba: nets, knicks
mlb: mets, yankees
nfl: giants, jets
Nhl: islanders, rangers
I think Chris wilcox is asking way to much money for a player who hasn't proven himself to be worth 50-60 mil.
- If mike james wants more money, he'll have to do a sign and trade with toronto for a deal that'll send him to the rockets.
-I think the lakers should make a move for Wilcox or Magloire. they have no cap room but they can work out a sign and trade.
-Does anyone else think that the Heats's players are a year away from a nursing home, Dwayne wade has it cut out for him.
-i advise Lebron not to sign that five year ext with the Cavs, he should wait a year and experience the free agency market.
- Isiah Thomas, and that's all i have to say about the knicks.
The Knicks organization has been managed into the ground. Star"buried" and Stevie "Franchise Killer" on the same team? GG Isaiah Thomas, it may look good on paper, but the real world is something else.
I say they trade those two away, and fast.
The Lakers should stick with Kwame Brown for at least another year, late last season he's showed us that he can really play, and his defense has always been exceptional. If they make a move for Magloire and get him, they'll be pretty stacked in the big man department. I suggest getting another small forward.
