    Thomas is better than Oberto and Elson combined. Maybe Horry too. Barry's been injured and although he's one of the best shooters ever to play the game, Finley isn't too far behind as is a lot better defensively.

    It isn't necessarily the trade that'll put them over the top, but he'll probably give them more than a 25+ draft pick would a few years from now when Timmy's headed toward retirement.

    exept Gasol trade, rest of west contenders have in a long-term given away more than received. Such gambling isn't dumars style.

    bla i heart KT. We couldn't have put together something better like tons of expirings?

    Ok let me rephrase that; like some expirings + Hayes

    If I remember correctly, the Sonics wanted a first-rounder too. Spurs gave up their 09 first rounder. I don't think Joe is willing to part with a first (I could be wrong), but we do have a bunch of 2nd's. Seattle's GM used to be with SA too, so they could've had the inside track from the get. Also, Elson is a stiff, but Brezec is even more of a stiff. And I doubt they'd have wanted to get Murray back.

    Kurt Thomas hasn't played much for Seattle. Kurt is like Dale Davis, without the tazer.

    I really wish that we would trade Bresec and Murray for 1 player so that we could also pick up Davis. You're exactly right, he is as tough as Thomas.

    Double-D's been missing jumpshots long before the taser, my friend.

    If Joe can't pull the trigger on a deal, I think PJ Brown is sitting at home. He is 38 years old just like 38 year old Dale Davis. Although we beat the Bulls last year in that 2nd round, PJ seem more active and agile vs us then Dale Davis did with us. Can't we just give Bresec to somebody for a drat pick in 2012 to create space......

    :cheers:

    Yeah, but he could still grab a rebound and keep the forwards honest.

    KT certainly has his skills, but I bet he would get Dale Davis type minutes on a contender like the Pistons.

    A reaction to ' Shaq to Suns' trade. Spurs are thinking that they have to play the Suns agains in the playoffs en route to the Finals. Spurs needed KT to bang inside with Shaq.

    KT can shoot below 18 footers quite well. A good trade for the Spurs who know that future draft picks meant nothing when Timmy retires.

    sure PJ Brown can hit a jumper but when do you play him? our best bet would be to find a better backup 2/3 for the playoffs

    Joe D should try to trade for Brent Barry:
    - Flip Murray
    - Brezec/Hayes/Herrmann
    - 2nd round pick

    We can? Am I wrong?

    I'm kinda leaning toward Joe snagging a back-up 3 AND a back-up 4/5.
    If Dumars can't get 'er done by 3:00pm today, I'll be watching the waiver wire and free-agent lists.

    As far as the back-up 4/5 spot. PJ or Double-D would work fine for me.

    ...and I'd love to see another option at the 3 with a little more defense than Arivs (no "J" lately).

    Off topic question for you based on your forum name BallDon'tLie.

    We know that that phrase is used by Sheed and he may have even coined it.

    My question is

    Should the Tigers use that phrase as their team slogan for the year?
    Wouldn't it be cool if someone wrote a song entitled BallDon'tLie
    and
    Each time that a Tigers hitter sends one out of the yard they play that song at Comerica.

    That would be so cool.

    You can answer on the Tigers Forum here.

    Thanks

    :hoops:

    I'm kinda strongly agreeing with all that. I'd love to get 2 out of these 3 from Milwaukee.

    Bogut (have to give up Dyess probably, or at least Max)
    Charlie "The Hairless Chihuahua" Villaneuva
    Gadzuric



    and we have the picks and contracts to make it happen


    bogut and Sheed would be a sick front line.
