    Default Of KG and Tampering (NOT related topics)

    Wow, would I like to see that Chicago article.

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200...nba/index.html

    Trading Kevin Garnett to a team with a chance to make a strong playoff run seems more likely now as the Timberwolves grow desperate. Insiders say Garnett rarely speaks with general manager Kevin McHale anymore. -- Chicago Tribune

    Boston and Minnesota's seven-player trade could be a precursor that Boston will trade Paul Pierce. The Celtics insist the trade was made to get supporting players, but Pierce now is the only player on the roster not acquired by Danny Ainge. -- Chicago Tribune

    The Celtics need a point guard. They like Delonte West, but more as a shooting guard. So consider this proposal: Chicago's Chris Duhon, who has shown he can run a team and make a 3-pointer, local favorite Ben Gordon, Eric Piatkowski and Tim Thomas (who have expiring contracts) along with the Bulls' No. 1 pick for Paul Pierce and Raef LaFrentz. -- Chicago Tribune

    The Pacers believe one of the Los Angeles teams was trying to derail the trade to get the price down so it could make a deal. It's why Ron Artest's agent supposedly told the Kings that Artest didn't want to go there. -- Chicago Tribune

    The Cavaliers are on the prowl for a point guard, with Timberwolves guard Marcus Banks a possibility. -- Morning Journal

    Warriors GM Chris Mullin was quoted Sunday saying he would not fire Mike Montgomery this season. But one interesting rumor has Mullin mentor Don Nelson taking over the Warriors to salvage the season. -- Chicago Tribune

    The Warriors' Troy Murphy, whose contract averages almost $10 million per year, said he didn't renew his private health club membership because he expected to be traded for Ron Artest. -- Chicago Tribune

    With 36-year-old power forward P.J. Brown starting at center, and a lone backup with 53 points all season, the Hornets need another big man just to get through practices, much less make a playoff push in the final 12 weeks. J.R. Smith, the sky-walking 20-year-old guard in his second season, could be one of the players traded by the Feb. 23 deadline. -- New Orleans Times-Picayune

    Antonio Davis returns to the Knicks having decided not to practice during his five-game suspension. Knicks players consider Davis to be Larry Brown's "pet." Brown, who considers practice more important than games, has let it go. -- New York Post

    Two sources said Frank Murphy, the Knicks senior VP of Basketball Operations who managed the team's salary cap and structured contracts, agreed to a "retirement settlement" late in preseason only after a "wild argument" with Isiah Thomas. -- New York Post

    Longtime Portland general manager Bob Whitsitt is supposedly up for the Toronto job, though a good candidate would be John Gabriel, who did a nice job of building and clearing cap space when the Magic skunked the Bulls in free agency in 2000. He's a scout for Portland. -- Contra Costa Times

    Trevor Ariza, despite being inactive three straight games and buried in Larry Brown's doghouse, said he doesn't want to be traded. "I'm young, being patient," Ariza said. "This is where I started. I want to be part of the future." -- New York Post

    Allen Iverson, who missed his first game of the season Saturday night because of a sprained left ankle, did not make the trip to Orlando. -- Philadelphia Inquirer

    Raja Bell's absence disrupted the Suns' defensive plan against LeBron James and the Cavaliers. About 50 minutes before tip-off, Bell walked off the court discouraged. He did not know that his right calf strain would do what the preceding right thigh bruise could not -- keep him out of a game. Bell still expects to play Tuesday at Philadelphia. -- Arizona Republic

    Lamar Odom, facilitator, has suddenly become Lamar Odom, fumbler, as his turnovers have almost topped his scoring in recent games. Phil Jackson, true to his Zen self, will let Odom figure out Odom. "We try and let him work himself through this little phase of indecision right now," Jackson said. "That's his problem." -- Los Angeles Times

    There is one member of the Raptors who was not sad to see former general manager Rob Babcock fired. But not because he dislikes the man. Forward Eric Williams has made it known for some time that he wants to be traded. -- Toronto Sun

    With an NBA-imposed deadline just days away, it appears likely that the Hornets will be based in Oklahoma City next season and visit New Orleans for just a handful of games with an understanding the team would return to the Crescent City for the 2007-08 season, league sources said. -- New Orleans Times-Picayune

    The players union will file a grievance on Chris Andersen's behalf, which is protocol for any suspended player. The hearing will be heard by an independent arbitrator. Andersen is the first player kicked out of the NBA because of drugs since former LSU standout Stanley Roberts in 1999. -- New Orleans Times-Picayune

    With every step on the Staples Center hardwood, Nuggets guard Andre Miller gave a shout out to his beloved nearby neighborhood of Watts on Saturday night. Miller has taken the good with the bad and proudly has "Watts" stitched on his Converse shoes to make sure people know he hasn't forgotten where he comes from. -- Denver Post

    From the worst NBA columnist in the country, Sam Smith:

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports...portsbulls-hed

    All things Artest

    "When Indianapolis reporters were interviewing the departing Artest through his car's open window, they wondered why someone was videotaping the interviews from inside the car, though strange behavior around Artest is hardly unusual. It seems Artest is now trying to sell the events of those last few days as a reality show. Whose reality, no one is sure. . . . Peja Stojakovic makes his debut for the Pacers this week, and they shouldn't expect much defense. The 6-9 forward has two blocks this season in more than 1,100 minutes played. . . . The Warriors' Troy Murphy, whose contract averages almost $10 million per year, said he didn't renew his private health club membership because he expected to be traded for Artest. . . . The Pacers believe one of the Los Angeles teams was trying to derail the trade to get the price down so it could make a deal. It's why Artest's agent supposedly told the Kings that Artest didn't want to go there."

    You'd be shocked at how much tampering actually goes on and doesn't get caught..its mind-boggling some of the stories you hear.

    You mean like Ronnie having seats behind the bench at TWO Laker games?

    Hell, thats mild. You can always get away with that stuff by laundering the tickets through several layers of friends and have plausible deniability. Its the stuff you don't hear about thats really tampering. Just like hearing Phil talk about Chris Bosh...technically thats tampering...but its not TAMPERING..like say....planning ahead of time with a free agent to have room to pay them when they come available.
