It is a long and hard road to get into the NBA. By chance, I met Mike Denzel, the former CEO of NBA Asia (now restructured into NBA China). He told me you must be either a former player, or you actually know someone up there to get into the NBA. He kind of told me the best way to crack into the league office is by working for minor leagues for years first. I still hope to one day get a job at NBA China, but it seems they only hire people from the mainland. Oh well, good luck to the both of us, I guess.

There are a lot of jobs that reallly have nothing to do with basketball or bball iq. I'm sure it isn't as hard as that guy claims. You just have to know what your doing i guess. I would have no problem working at the minor leagues in some capacity either. We all have to pay our dues.

How about the heat going 0-7 in preseason. Damn. No d-wade = no wins I guess

Maybe this will give them a boost: ESPN - Sources: Heat close to dealing for Davis, Blount - NBA

I think the Heat got a pretty good deal out of the trade. Ricky Davis can play when he KNOWS he is NOT the man. Riley, Shaq and Wade will shut him up! That said, what the hell is wrong with McHale? What the hell did the T-Wolves get out of this trade? Why would ANYONE in his right mind trade FOR Walker?

PS: By the way, thanks for the e-rep, Mr.Blackcock, I just now noticed it. You are cool, dude.

Bad move for the T-Wolves, Walker in recent years hasn't been that impressive. Although it'll really help the young guys shine more. I'm really excited to see Al Jefferson and Corey Brewer pick up the slack.

I don't know how you think the twolves young guys will benefit from watchin walker chuck up 25 shots a game and make 2 of them. Please explain how you think an out of shape, lazy egomaniac, with a piss poor attitude will help any team.

On another note- they reason they agreed to the trade is simple fellas. They want a good enviornment around their young guys. Walker is an expiring contract and ridding themselves of davis only helps. His rep is nearly as bad as walkers. Walker will most likely get bought out. I bet he returns to the celtics as a vet minimum.

azyiu- don't mention it, thanks for the pics. They rocked.

Yeah, Mr. Blackcock, the ONLY reason I could think of about the Walker trade is his contract... is his an expiring one? If so, that would be the only reason, man.

Hey, about the Bulls / Bucks game tonight, three of your guys went down, Wallace, Noah and Thomas. What is the latest, man? I hope they are ok.

Yes walker's contract is expiring after this season.

As for the bulls- I did not see the game. I went to the midnight showing of saw 4. I heard about the injuries however. There is no update yet on any of them. The inury report should be in soon from bulls.com

I honestly think Walker's mostly going to be riding the pine this year if he doesn't get bought out before. If anything, that means the young guys will get more minutes and chances to contribute. Before, Ricky Davis would have been the man in Minnesota.

If mchale has anything left in his head he will buy out walker. That guy is a cancer to any team. Boston would really be a good fit for him now. They just want to win by any means necessary and walker could at least provide scoring I guess.

^ Dude, I know you love your Bulls and all, and that is cool; but Curry (IMO) isn't all that great of a player! He is only effective around the basket, yet, he does not play D at all. Imagine if you guys still have Curry along side with Big Ben, the lane will be so cogged up and Big Ben can't do his stuff on D. I think you guys are better off without Curry, man. If Thomas develop nicely as expected, and Joe Smith holds his own; I think you guys will or should win the east this year!

Well... that is assuming you guys don't trade for Kobe... and on the Kobe's front... I don't even know what to say.

EDIT: I always liked Carlos Boozer, and IMO trading both Brown and Bynum to the Jazz for Boozer would've work for both team... but that was BEFORE the start of last season. Everyone know the Jazz won't trade Boozer after last season. The Lakers' management is always half a step slow!!!

I honestly don't think the Jazz would get much by trading away Boozer even before last season. Kwame is almost worthless except as a backup IMO and Bynum was still very raw before last year. Besides, Boozer has long been predicted to be the next Karl Malone so it was only a matter of time before he lived up to his potential.

My reasons for that trade proposal are:

a) Boozer's health was a concern before last season, and I bet the Jazz at one time or another thought they made a mistake by signing him.

b) Sure, we all know Brown is a career backup at best, but his contract was going to be up after this season. So, assuming the Jazz thought Boozer's health issues are major concerns, they would like to get under the cap as quickly as they could.

c) Bynum is raw, but he has a ton of upsides, and NBA GMs love upsides and potentials.

All in all, I always try to think of ways to improve the team's over ratings, while keeping both Kobe and Odom as much as I can... IF I were the Lakers' GM.

Off topic: I know some of you guys were interested in playing fantasy NBA but didn't have the time, if you still want to play for shits and giggles with no real time commitments I have a solution for you. I set up a league where you pick a real NBA team (preferably your favorite) and you only get players from that team. You can basically just let it sit there and at the end of the season see how much fantasy value your team has. Just don't pick the Phoenix Suns unless you're an actual fan (Vince is the only one here who can honestly claim to be a real Suns fan). There won't be a draft at all, I'll pick your players for you, so it's even less work on your part. If you want to join: Yahoo League ID#157373, Password: yoyao

Well... that is assuming you guys don't trade for Kobe... and on the Kobe'sslow!!!
HIs defense was much improved last year with the knicks. He rebounding was too. If we still had curry I don't think ben wallace would be a bull. That's for sure. For one there would be no money to sign him and your right he and curry would not mesh well together. That being said curry's post game is ridiculously good. The bulls could really benefit from that. I don't see tryrus coming along just yet.

As for kobe,
The lakers have asked for loul deng, tryrus thomas, ben gordon, and noah. Pax refuses to give up that much and kobe has said he would not be interested in playing for the bulls if they give up that much. I personally will boycot every single bulls game for as long as kobe is a bull if pax included loul deng in a deal. I trully think deng will be one of the best all around players in the game in a few years. Giving up tryus without seeing his full develpment is stupid too. I can see trading gordon and I have not been a fan of noah ever. HE literally is a second coming of tyson chandler... great just what we need. Another offesivly challenged rebounder/shotblocker.

bottom line: NO KOBE IN CHICAGO PLEASE!!!!! Pax will be hung if he trades for him. We know what our guys are worth and the lakers are nuts if they think john paxon would give up that much for him. He knows better than anyone that if a trade doesn't make his team better present and future not to do it.

Kobe's good, but not worth that much to a team that is almost there already with its current roster. The Bulls have a better chance with Gordon and Deng staying than they do with Kobe.

I am with you Mr. Blackcock, the Lakers should just stick with Kobe, period! Besides, Jerry Buss needs to save face by keeping Kobe also. Trading Kobe away would means admitting yet another costly mistake he made in the last few years. Buss always gives people an impression that he does NOT make too many mistakes. It is LA, man, there will always be rumors and dramas! The deal is, I think the Lakers isn't all THAT bad as it is. Sure, they are NO title contenders; but what made them looked so bad the last 3 seasons were mainly injuries to pretty much everyone on the team at different times!

Right on man- before odom went down last season that lakers team was what? 13-15 games above .500. That's how they were able to make the playoffs even with the huge colapse at the end of last season.

It's a shitty way to open the season. The spurs will murder the blazers. The only way this game would be interesting is if oden was playing and he's not. The new look rockets are what has me going. I'm looking forward to seeing how steve francis and mike james do back in rockets uniforms. But let's face it, this rockets team will pound the lakers into the ground.

I don't know, neither do I care. I don't follow it as religiously as some of you.

All I know is I enjoy the NBA, and I'm just glad to have basketball back on my TV for the regular season!
