Well, looks like we have another big NBA trade on the books today...according to ESPN.com. Ainge is at it again, with a trade with Cleveland for Ricky Davis.
...To me, it looks like Boston gets the better end of the deal....with Davis' scoring, and Mihm's strong play this year. However, Ricky Davis does seem to be a bit selfish, and it will be curious to see how he meshes with Paul Pierce and Co. I have been watching a few of the Cavs games on TV this year (curious about LeBron), and I'd be happy to see them improve their team at all.
I've been expecting the Cavs to trade Ricky and his giant ego all year, to make room for LeBron to just do his thing. LeBron's been holding back so far, cautious not to step on Ricky's toes. But it's also hurting LeBron's development, and the Cavs overall I think. I'm just surprised that it took the Cavs so long to dump this turd. Ricky is, after all, the same player who intentionally missed a shot that he purposely took at the opponent's basket, just to get his own rebound to register his first triple double. Talk about in idiot! The Cavs fined his sorry ass for that pathetic display of selfishness... Since Davis' departure just last week, LeBron's been blowing up! Went for 38 tonight, as the Cavs ended their almost year long losing streak on the road. Ricky sure ain't gonna like playing with Pierce either, that's for sure!
As for my Lakers, things seemed to be rolling along pretty well there again, with 10 wins in a row until they hit the skids again with back to back losses against the Mavs and Blazers.
They almost blew another one tonight against the Nuggest too! They had a 19 point lead, but it took a heroic (and reviewed) buzzer beating shot by Kobe, who was in court all day in Colorado, to beat them.
Meanwhile, formerly woeful teams like the Grizzlies and Clippers have been playing some kickass ball of late. Interesting things goin' on in the NBA these days. Even Scott's T-Wolves look like they've finally figured things out up there in Minnesota. Must've been that lazy lardass Candy Man that was holding them back, eh?
So how's everyone else's teams and players doing?
