Las Vegas, Sin City. Not only will the All-Star game be played there this weekend, but also all of the NBA General Managers are having their yearly meeting. Who's ear is Joe in this weekend? Did he have a quiet dinner with Jerry Weiss or Mitch Kupchak? Maybe Joe met with Danny Ainge after a nice tennis match (They both love tennis) to discuss a trade. Probably no contact with Rod Thorn (too much hostility there). I read somewhere that during allstar weekend, the majority of NBA trades are brokered but not consumated until after. If this is true, then Joe D is definitely bending someone's ear this weekend.
