I would go nuttier than a squirl turd if we could actually pull that one off. Just imagine Josh Smith and Fred Jones playing together at the same time.

Sorry for posting another Artest trade thread but I couldn't help myself.

How come you didn't take a couple of the Hawks 1st round picks while you're at it?

I know that we would have to give up some of our picks.

Atlanta would have to be as stupid as Ron Artest to pull that one off. But as a Pacers fan I would welcome it with open arms. :2tup:

Damn. Thats wishful thinking. Atlanta would possibly deal either J-Smoov or Big Al, but probably not both and certainly no Williams. But then again, I don't want Marvin. He's a huge bust. A poor mans Tim Thomas.

Wow, give the guy some time before you label him a bust.

Geeeeeez

As bad as Atlanta is now the one thing they have are several players that provide the best of everything.

Athletic
Very Young
Still in thier Cheap Rookie Contract.
Vast Potential for improvement.



Other than AL...
ATL does not trade any of those, if they are just getting Artest
You would need to provide a semi young veteran of close or equal caliber at a relative reasonable contract.

Otherwise Atlanta would prefer to continue to suck wind for a few more years, rack up even more top draft picks.
Then eventually trade some of them off once they have grown into thier potential.

Get a grip man!

We need to stop going after Bosh...................


And start going after Wade.

Jeeze!!!!!!!!

Wait....I thought we were going after Garnett? Or maybe we can still get McGrady. Yeah, enough with this Bosh talk!
