Waiving Nate Robinson Would Be Mistake for Chicago Bulls

Waiving Nate Robinson Would Be Mistake for Chicago Bulls

Nate Robinson’s name continues to get tossed around like he doesn’t matter. I understand that Robinson isn’t a superstar, and I get that he’s only 5’9″, but he’s still a consistent force to be reckoned with on a daily basis. And yet, that doesn’t seem to matter. Robinson struggled to generate any suitors over the [...]

Philadelphia 76ers Smart to Remain Cautious With Jrue Holiday

Philadelphia 76ers Smart to Remain Cautious With Jrue Holiday

The NBA season has not been kind to the Philadelphia 76ers. That said, despite the urgency that is undoubtedly running through the city of Brotherly Love, it’s reassuring to see that the team is not making any brash decisions. I’m referring to, of course, the Sixers’ treatment of injured guard Jrue Holiday, who has missed [...]

Orlando Magic Should Trade J.J. Redick

Orlando Magic Should Trade J.J. Redick

J.J. Redick is one of the best players the Orlando Magic currently possess. But he’s also a free agent at the end of this season. Which is why the Magic should trade him. According to Ric Bucher of Comcast, that may, in fact be just what the team ultimately does: More from the Trade Winds: [...]

When Should Knicks Bring Amar’e Stoudemire Back?

When Should Knicks Bring Amar’e Stoudemire Back?

The New York Knicks received some very good news on Monday night. Or bad news, depending upon which side of Carmelo Anthony’s fence you stand on. According to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News, Amar’e Stoudemire has been cleared for full-contact practice and could return for the Knicks as soon as Friday when [...]

Is Courtney Lee Expendable to Celtics?

Is Courtney Lee Expendable to Celtics?

Courtney Lee was supposed to be a championship-caliber piece that helped push the Boston Celtics back into contention. But that hasn’t been the case. And it may never be. According to David Aldridge of NBA.com, the Celtics may be dangling Lee as trade bait: Lee agreed to four-year, $21 million contract in a sign-and-trade deal [...]

Brooklyn Nets Must Avoid Trading for Bucks Ersan Ilyasova

Brooklyn Nets Must Avoid Trading for Bucks Ersan Ilyasova

Ersan Ilyasova is an enigma. Or he could be a one-year wonder. Either way, he remains someone the Brooklyn Nets must avoid. Why do I say this? Because according to Gary Wolfel of the Racine Journal-Times (via NetsDaily.com), the Nets are reportedly once again interesting in acquiring the essential stretch forward: Gary Woelfel, long-time Bucks [...]

David West Makes No Sense for Lakers

David West Makes No Sense for Lakers

Let’s get something straight: Trading Pau Gasol would be a mistake for the Los Angeles Lakers. At least right now. Not just because Steve Nash wants to play alongside him and not just because the Lakers owe it to their newly constructed team to see if the current dynamic works, but also because Los Angeles [...]

Atlanta Hawks and Josh Smith Are Finally a Match

Atlanta Hawks and Josh Smith Are Finally a Match

Josh Smith has been a budding young star on an Atlanta Hawks team that has been consistently mediocre for nearly a decade. But that’s officially all changed. Atlanta’s explosive power forward is set to become an unrestricted free agent after this season, and through last year, all indications were that he would spurn the Hawks [...]

In Defense of Golden State Warriors’ David Lee

In Defense of Golden State Warriors’ David Lee

In the interest of full disclosure, I believe in David Lee. From the time he set foot on the court with the New York Knicks to the day he was traded to the Golden State Warriors to now, when the Warriors are actually, well, competent, I’ve watched him. I’ve watched him put up double-doubles with [...]

Cleveland Cavaliers Would Regret Trading Anderson Varejao

Cleveland Cavaliers Would Regret Trading Anderson Varejao

Drafting Kyrie is pretty much the last decision the Cleveland Cavaliers made that I agree with. Which is why it should come as no surprise that they are shopping Anderson Varejao. Though the center was once that embodiment of inconsistency and frailty, Varejao has seemingly gotten his act together. He’s having a career year, averaging [...]
