A candid and long interview with Stan Van Gundy. Worth a read though

So Grizz're under the tax line now, so no Gay/ZBO trade. Until we do it all again next year anyway.
Heck of a way to kick off the trading season lol
Spears said Memphis shipped out Wayne Ellington in the deal too. Woulda been nice if they'd done that a day earlier.
Wow, their bench is pretty much nothing now.
There's gotta be someone else coming from Cleveland, or another deal about to happen, Memphis doesn't have a full roster otherwise. And I know they needed to get under the tax, but a 1st? Really?Quote:
Grizzlies source says the deal is Speights/Selby/ 2015 1st Round pick (Top 5 Protected) for Jon Leuer.
I wish we had Speights off the bench...
I guess Wroten will finally get playing time. I was intrigued by this guy.
NBA rigging it for the Lakers again
So is the new Sonics team going to be still considered a part of the Kings franchise, and the Thunder still a part of the old Sonics franchise? And the old Sonics and new Sonics won't be related besides name and location? Or will the Thunder branch off and be considered their own franchise, and the new Sonics be a continuation of the old Sonics franchise?
I'm confused as to how this is going to work.
The old Cleveland browns and the new Cleveland browns are not related. This is not a new situation.
I'm sure the old sonics name, trophies and tradition will be released to Seattle if/when the kings move there. I'm guessing they'll treat it like the sonics took a 5 year break and the kings just went defunct.

The Brooklyn Nets are preparing to make another run at Dwight Howard, according to a source. http://sulia.com/my_thoughts/4bff50d...source=twitter …
Here we go again.........
Don't see how the lakers can say no to Lopez at this point, unless Jim buss is still living in fantasy land where dwight is still the greatest acquisition ever and he's not going anywhere...
