    Oh Wow!

    Just saw this come across Twitter.

    This would be such a coup for us!

    I like Murph as a person and teammate, but we've long established that he is hindering us rather than help us for quite some time now.

    This way he can go to his hometown team! I am sure he would be happy about that... Right?

    This would be absolutely amazing! I don't even care if we have to absorb Posey, getting Collison is definitely worth it!! Bird, make it happen!

    I'd be cool with that. I'd assume that Solo would be involved somehow to balence out the roster to 15.

    PG - Collison/AJ/Ford
    SG/SF - BRush/Granger/Dunleavy/Lance/George/Inferno/Posey
    PF/C - Hibbert/Foster/Hansbrough/McRoberts/Rolle

    This would make it easier for us to move Dunleavy.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    This is such a big and confusing trade..need time to digest. Pacers are big winners so far but rest looks murky. I like it for NO and Hou, but NJ..? Murphy isn't bad for that team and will add some wins, but is that what they really want right now?

    I agree Hicks, we will figure something out at the 4 (hopefully Hans?), if not, we still have other expirings to offer and maybe Horford next summer?

    My only question though, is what is in this for Houston? An Ariza for C. Lee swap? I haven't looked up salary numbers, but is this a dumb of salary in Ariza? Or do they just want more of a defensive specialist in Lee?

    I wish I would never have seen this as now I am going to crash like the hendinburgh when this doesn't happen.

    If this does happen I will nominate Larry Bird for Sainthood.

    Depending on how Foster is doing and how far along TPTB think Hansbrough will be before returning....I'd suspect that we'd be seeing more Granger and George at the PF spot with some limited "spot" minutes. Regardless, I'd have suspected that Granger would have been playing some backup minutes at the PF spot with George getting some "rookie" minutes.

    This seems too good to be true, what are missing. Why won't this happen.

    I understand why the pacers make the deal. But why the other three teams? I don't understand

    Houston would rather have Courtney Lee than Trevor Ariza?

    Are we offering up an unprotected first or something as well? Why else would this make sense for anyone other than us?

    Is it April 1st?

    What is the catch?

    Am I dreaming?

    I'm sure Bird is doing everything possible to make this happen. If this falls through it won't be the pacers fault
