    You think you guys have it bad? Try being a Knick fan. See I made you feel 100x better.

    I look forward to both our teams getting better and seeing a rivalry renewed

    I have a rule: never feel bad for a New York team. After all, they hurt themselves trying to buy championships every year. A little cellar-dwelling is good for the ego.

    Do we have the money to bring back UD, Chalmers, Q, Dorell if we go the Max/Junior Max route?

    Yes.

    I would say NO on Que though...Que has value and if we do what I suspect we will do (Sign Raja Bell) Then Que won;t be needed and he will get around 3 mil a year which is alot for a 8th man..

    Had an interesting conversation with an interesting person today.

    All I'm going to say is, "Bye Beasley."

    Surprise. Our top target going into free agency isn't even a free agent. Chris Paul will be discussed and pursued heavily. Darren Collison as well. Hornets will move one, preferably Collison, but only if they can get another team to take on Peja and/or Okafor. This works for Miami in a Michael Beasley deal with Cook and/or James Jones included, as taking on Collison/Okafor would still allow Miami to sign a max free agent and have around mid-level money remaining to fill out the roster, but this also gives us two starters.

    Imagine walking into training camp with Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh/Amare/Boozer, Emeka Okafor, Darren Collison, Udonis Haslem, Q-Rich/Dorell, Anthony, minimum guys like Raja Bell, and perhaps a mid level player.

    It's a scary though.

    New ownership coming in for New Orleans is the reason why they might be willing to move Chris Paul. People around Chris Paul believe that he truly wants out. If you want to talk about the Wade/LBJ friendship which is the only reason why we're even connected to LBJ (which won't happen), make note that Dwyane Wade's best friend in the business aside from Q-Rich & Dorell is Chris Paul.

    Ultimately, I think they move Collison instead. But it would not surprise me if they keep Collison (younger and cheaper) and completely rebuild/wipe out pay roll by moving Chris Paul, especially if he requests a trade which many believe will happen.

    I have heard the Chris Paul thing.

    if we do it...we have to abandon any junior max discussions for a SF. but we will have to explore shooters...Korver?

    It changes the makeup of what our lineup will look like to close the 4th quarter.

    Why is that? what's the difference between picking up Chris Paul + jnr max and picking up max + jnr max?

    Also...which guys are being looked at for jnr max contracts?

    Bro, I hope so, George Shinn is my list, when the Hornets were in Charlotte they led the NBA in attendance, he pulled the plug and moved to NO after dealing LJ and Alonzo Mourning and Kobe Bryant.

    Ultimately, I think they move Collison instead. But it would not surprise me if they keep Collison (younger and cheaper) and completely rebuild/wipe out pay roll by moving Chris Paul, especially if he requests a trade which many believe will happen.
    They gave away Tyson Chandler, Shinn is such a skinflint it would not surprise me to see CP dealt.

    Which imho would be 50% of the Heat's battle, they need an inside presence with JO appearing to be d-o-n-e and UH more of an auxilliary player.

    Meanwhile, I'm waiting to see if Sect's 2009 prediction that a "lost" season, a non competitive one, leads to two MAX FA's, or whether DWade's vow that "this is the last first round playoff series I lose I can tell you that" holds true if the Heat are shut out this year.

    Assuming Wade stays...

    "Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
