    Am I the only one who notices that Detroit doesn't have a real PG anymore? Bet Larry's just loving that.

    Frankly, I just can't get worried about seeing Sheed in a Pistons uniform a grand total of once (Palm Sunday.)

    Here's the details:

    Boston gets: Chucky Atkins, Lindsey Hunter and the Pistons first round pick this year.

    Detroit gets: Rasheed Wallace and Mike James

    Atlanta gets: Chris Mills, Zeljko Rebraca, Bob Sura and the Bucks first round pick owed to Detroit.

    Ok guys please answer me on this, why is this trade able to go down. I thought that there was a 60 day hold on players being traded once they were traded to a team.

    I watched the Atlanta game last night. Sheed was very good and having a lot of fun.

    Atlanta fans sure do get cheated this year. They lose two of their best players for a late first round draft pick and cap space.

    Pistons will now be a lot tougher defensively you would think.

    Chucky Atkins was a real pg? He was no more of a PG than Billups. I think with Billups/James they barely lose a thing vs Billups/Atkins. Hope you are right about Sheed, but I think he is really gonna help them. His rating as a team cancer way overblown if you ask me.

    Oh please let it be Detroit. He'll ruin that team.

    On the other hand, if it's NY, then I officially move from "concerned" to "scared" where the Knicks are concerned.

    Yep, it's Detroit.

    Don't worry, the Knickerbockers will have his sorry *** next year.
    I'll take him for the MLE. Didn't want to have to trade anything decent for him.

    And Detroit will have a free run at Okur.
    That's whats great about this trade. Wallace will do nothing but hurt Okur's value since I'm sure Wallace will be starting at C sometime soon, so it might not cost them as much now anyway. My fantasy team on the other hand...........
    Ugh - didn't think about that. I have Okur on BOTH of my teams.

    I believe that's only in affect for deals over the summer. For example, in '98 Kenny Anderson was traded from Portland to Toronto, but he refused to play for them. He was traded to Boston a week later.

    A player can be traded again, if they are the only player that's sent away, by in this example the Hawks.

    I thought so too - not true.

    Rasheed can be traded as long as Atlanta doesn't package another player with him.

    Er, kstat - PD - take good care of our player for us would ya?

    To be honest, as reliable as Sheed is, I don't place a whole lot of faith in his "I'll sign with the Knicks for less money." I'll believe it from Mr. CTC when I see it.

    Just once I'd like to able to trade our crap for a guy like Sheed (well, hopefully minus his personality sometime).

    Or sign said guy for the freakin' MLE just because of where you are on the map.

    Hicks raises a good point. Why couldn't we make a run at something like this?

    There is a window of opportunity where you can trade the player again

    If you're refering to us pulling a similar trade:

    One, we don't have ending contracts.

    Two, we're the best team in the East and don't need to f-up our chemistry.

    Three, Donnie (and, I would assume, Larry) know that renting a guy for three months is a bad idea.

    1) We have no expiring contracts. Assuming the CBA holds up until Croshere is in his last year, just WAIT for all the teams begging us to take him off our hands his last year.

    2) It's Indiana. Players won't sign here for the MLE like they would in NY or anywhere else.
    We have no expiring contracts. You mean like Ron Mercers, you know the one we had to dump last summer because nobody would have taken him off of our hands because nobody would want him or his expiring contract.

    God d@mn the more I think on this today the more pissed I get about that whole Brad Miller thing. Not like I wasn't pissed before.

    Yes, I'm planning on abusing my powers for absolutely no reason.

    Why would I do that? I've locked one thread as an Admin. One. That was today. Becuase we already had a Sheed thread going.
    Then I misunderstood you. What were you refering to then?

    A frontcourt of Okur, R. Wallace and B. Wallace is absolutely scary. They are going to shred Al, Jeff and JO.

    Yep, that one whole game we play them's really gonna be awful.

    I'd feel better about that if we were full strength.

    To paraphrase UB, I think I'm going to go shoot myself now.


    What a bad day.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Does anybody know how much it costs to support a crack habit? I'm thinking of picking up a new hobby to, um, er, ease the pain.

    I think the bigger problem is you guys will probably run into Detroit in the playoffs. Rasheed is a knucklehead but with him at the 3 for Detroit there is no team in the East that can match up with him. Even as great as Artest is at the 3 he won't be able to defend Rasheed because of the huge height difference and make no mistake about it Larry Brown will have Rasheed in the post the entire game he won't be standing out at the 3 point line like he did in Portland. It also will eliminate Artest's post up game, before against Detroit Artest could manhandle Prince in the post but with Rasheed he is going to be at a serious disadvantage trying to post up a 6'11" player. Rasheed is a bonehead off the court but he can create nightmare matchups because of his size and ability.

    I'd be more scared of Prince, Wallace, Wallace. That's some SERIOUS athleticism and versatility - at least defensively. And I used to be wowed at our Harrington, Ronnie, J.O. line-up...

    Here's hoping that Bender can step it up for the Ps at some point.
