Weather it works or not, I think the nets are taking a shot, they have D will, they have lopez, and johnson, why not take a shot like this, I applaud them, instead of sitting by and doing nothing letting the stars on the nets just rot really sucks. obviously nothing is set in stone, we don't know if they will be good or not, but on paper I gotta say I like it, I don't like KG and pierce personally but they are very tough players.

I completely agree, I think is great move by the Nets.

This is a win now move for Nets for sure,they can't really afford to go into a rebuilding mode with D.W. if they did he will be pass his prime and their up coming stars will be at their best and many not be mature enough to win.

They would be adding something the lack last season and they would have good 2 seasons.

Can't say the Lakers are not trying to let Howard know in the public eye they want him.

Good luck to the Nets. Nothing has happened there since the Doctor and highly doubt this move will do anything.

All Toronto organizations, leafs , Raptors,Toronto FC (minus blue jays) all fall under Liewicki(think that's the spelling). He he id and is making huge changes. First was the firing of Colangelo 3 weeks ago. Colangelonwas appointed President of operations outside of basketball. He stepped down last week and is now consultant away from basketball. Msai Uriji , nuggets gm stepped down and returned to the Raptors. 5 years ago he was assistant gm. He did incredible things in Denver. More so after the Melo trade. He is going to make slow moves. But get the team back to playoffs to start. Coach Casey is staying but assistant coaches are pretty much gone

RR if it wasn't for bone head move like Bargnani. The contant barrage of Euro players not producing, and most of all not trading bosh when he should have. Bc might have been still here.

The Lakers keepping D'antoni pretty much put them in the same boat as the Celtics, they are not going anywhere and they are going to pay insane money in salaries.
Why waste their money and these players' season, let them go or get a coach that fit the players.
Had they gotten Phil, Howard more likely would not be going any where, KB would not had been injured, Pau and Nash would be in better hands.
Probably Lakers fans would had had a better season and bee looking forward to this coming season.
Right now I not looking forward to another D'antoni season, who is?
Lol the quicker the season gets here the quicker he will be fired...... If they have ruff start like they did last year if they bring most of this.squad back, then I think he will get the same fate like Brown did......

I don't know what to expect these coming months with free agency and possible trades..... Reports are saying Howard will not resign, but who knows with his situation..... Like you said though, why waste all that money on players who may have one more year left...... It's a tough decision for management.......

That's one of the main things the Nets were missing last year...... Mental and physical toughness to go along with the talent they have....... K.G and Pierce will make them better in both aspects...... You can never have to much experience especially playoff experience in my opinion......

Well I must say. I will take the Knicks mascot for Bargnani. It was announced pending league approval and after July 10th, Andre Bargnani traded to Knicks for get this. Marcus Camby,steve Novak, and 2016 first round pick. I guess Marcus will end his career with his first 2 teams. More to come Iam sure.Derozen is next.

You know I think that Maple Leafs Sports & Entertainment knocked it out the park when they got Tim Leiweke.

I got nothing but good things to say about him from his history here, the one thing against him was not being able to sell AIG group for $10 billion or more and I think that's what got him fired eventually.
I think it was smart move to keep Colangelo as a consultant.

I expect big changes in the whole Toronto group, but how quick he can get them done I'm not sure.

Msai Uriji, really?
I still think goal is to change the mentality about Canada in general.
I don't think Msai Uriji is going to have it as easy as in Denver, not saying that it is easy in Denver, but I think you get my meaning.
Bottom line is that Tim Leiweke understand the problem and knows what needs to be done and I think he is the right guy to get it done.
I can't wait to see how he tackles this and in the process gives the big finger to AIG's mr Anschutz for making the mistake of letting him go.

True, sooner the season starts the sooner the Lakers will sink, fans and media will get on their cases and D'antoni will have to be remove from the equation, but the thing is now.

Can't afford to lose Howard over this crap, Lakers need Howard to get other free agents to come to L.A. in 2015, Howard is their hook.

That saying that, this is L.A. and these are the Lakers won't cut it, the glamour of the city and big market helps, but it just won't cut it my opinion.

Not signing him, send a message to the other free agents that there is something wrong with the Lakers that can't one of the nicer guys in the league to stay.

Lakers need to get at lease a sign in trade if they can secure him, there is a lot talk that him and CP3 want to play together in Houston.
Now it appears that CP3 is thinking on staying with the Clippers, then trade Howard to the Clips for Griffin if they can't sing him.

I wouldn't mind building around Griffin better then getting nothing in return.

I'm just saying you gotta keep your mind open for anything right now.

I agree . I think Tim will do well here since has a vision and plan. As gor Msai he already knows Toronto since he has been here before and he alreadys knows its going to be tough. Its a great fit though.

R your good at the numbers. The Bargnani deal was axed by Stern. Did not fall under Cap rules. So the Knicks and Raps are reworking the deal this week. Man we just can't get rid of Bargs.
