I think you have the two of us confused, Matt.  You're the one who's all over Artest's junk.  I'd be afraid to get within 100 yards of that guy.

Wow ... this has not been a good season to be an NBA star:

I'm not sure what the Nuggets get out of that deal (other than possible salary reduction), but OK .....

*EDIT* - OK ... salary reduction is exactly why Denver pulled the trigger on this trade.

i don't see how boykins was ever going to get any minutes anyhow.  if he excels in milwaukee, he could come out ahead in contract negotiations next year.

I think Denver was just stuck with too many bodies with the emergence of Boykins and the return of JR Smith from the suspension.  In the interim they added AI, so they've got Anthony, Iverson and Smith all wanting to shoot the ball. 

Milwaukee on the other hand needed another shooter with the injuries to Redd and Villanueva.

it looks like the warriors got the better end of that one, but ultimately it looks like spares for spares.  that trade just looks like someone is trying to clear cap space.

This is the kind of stuff that makes me nuts.

Is there anything more pointless than an NBA player committing a technical foul?  Refs do not reverse their calls.  It can only get you in trouble, so shut the hell up.  If I were a coach, I'd sit the player's ass on the bench for a month if they did this, and then we'd see if they'd dare do it again:

Utah 100
Detroit 99

Rasheed Wallace, who had 11 points, was called for a technical while Williams was shooting free throws. That allowed Okur to shoot a free throw to give the Jazz a seven-point lead with five minutes left, and the point proved to be the difference in the closely contested game.

---------------------------------------

Just like the 15 yard penalties the Chargers endured against Tom Brady on Sunday, for swinging and headbutting Patriots with reckless abandon.  Look at you now, morons.

Ron Artest and Jermaine O'Neal to reunite?


Pacers' O'Neal may be dealt
Friday, Jan 19, 2007 12:14 pm EST

Informed sources near the Indiana Pacers situation suggest that Jermaine O'Neal may be a lot closer to being dealt than even he will admit. A few weeks ago, O'Neal announced that if he could not get the Pacers turned around, maybe it was time for him to go.

That seems very likely to happen this summer, although a handful of GM's and scouts say it could happen before next month's trade deadline. One source hinted that the Denver Nuggets' Marcus Camby or even the Sacramento Kings' Brad Miller could be parts of a package involving O'Neal.

I got a chuckle out of this one.  It looks like Zach Randolph is being real careful not to squish Boykins:

Humph.  That didn't really cross my mind.  I'm not sure what that says about you (or the apparent contaminants in Rochester's water for that matter) but I'm sure I'd have been leaning that way also had that been Christian Laettner or Eddie Griffin, and not Zach Randolph.

Nice pic.  I was talking to a few friends back when the trade happened about how similar AI and Melo look.  Cornrows ... headbands ... tattoos all over the place ... that weird arm-sock thing .....

Yup it's like Melo's mirror image into a smaller mirror:
