    Doesn't matter, because the cannon's broken and Arnie still hasn't fixed it yet.

    PS: Very nice avatar webz.

    As Webz posted on the "make your trades thread" Arizona has a spot in their local rag about the possibility of Gordon & Wilcox to Philly and Iggy to the Sun... with the Pistons picking up Amare.

    This is the kind of makes sense in that it frees up Stuckey to play more off the ball... then you move Rip later for an expiring (good SGs are easy to find).

    or.... you can say that Darko drafted by the right team could have been motivated to play to his skills (which i still think he has... if you forget his 10 cent brain) and anthony would have rotted and gotten a bad head sitting on the bench, don't forgot how brown treated the boy in the olympics....

    Hindsight is sooooo easy to make the right decisions, everybody said Darko was the 2nd pick in the draft and might have been thought of as a number one pick if it hadn't been for a little known King coming out for the draft that year.

    And for all the fans of Larry Brown, how many championships has he won without Joe Dumars?

    How many championships has Dumars won, as a GM, without Larry Brown?

    Doesn't matter. Critics were proven to be right in that we were a one and done team.

    Quick scan of the Bucks contracts... they have NO PFs signed for next year... several expirings or near expirings on the books.
    Possible opportunity for Joe and Hammand to work out something for Jmax.

    There's a few players who may be on the radar that would be hard to trade for due to their BYC status (we don't have the cap flexibility or trade exceptions available)

    Danny Granger
    Marvin Williams
    Marcin Gortat
    Andrew Bogut
    Chris Paul
    Deron Williams
    Andrew Bynum
    Raymond Felton
    Glen Davis
    Paul Millsap
    David Lee

    No doubt. Still hearing Paul's name floating around. I don't know if its just a big tease but if they don't want to pay him then I am sure he would fit in pretty nicely over here.

    I don't see NO letting him go unless it's a spectacular deal. Not only is he their entire franchise; He's got favorite-son status in the New Orleans community. I can only imagine the fan backlash for that franchise if they were to ship him outta town.

    Plus Paul's BYC status means that they would likely hang on to him until after July 1st.

    The only thing that I could think of would be either a three team deal or a scenario where Joe picks for NO in the lottery this year and sends "that guy" + Jeb & Tay to the Hornets for CP3.

    Could Joe do that?
    Would Joe (or you guys) do that?

    The forum is a place to share ideas and thoughts on the team. It seems you don't like the trade threads, any thread that talks about any players on the team and their development or lack there of, any article written by Lang. or any other writer for that matter.

    What do you expect to see when you log on here???:)

    Locomotive action shots from through out the game, DD, that's what Roscoe told me I would find, and I've been disappointed ever since!

    sigh.

    those "how to get cp3 " are not trade ideas, they are fantasy.CP3 is the cornerstone of the franchise, already proven allstar and future hall of famer.

    no way you can get him.
