I really like Roberts and think he could be a great back up going forward. He's having to play a bigger role than he should and he has held up alright. With Holiday back next season, I'd like to see Roberts as the primary PG back up. Rivers can shift to SG as the primary back up there. Then we have ...

We could offer Holiday? Then the Wolves could flip Rubio somewhere else or play him off the bench. I know it sounds a bit extreme, but we are stuck with Gordon and Evans for at least one more season. We could start them in the backcourt. It hasn't looked that bad the latter part of the season. Pekov...

It's cool. I don't know why the Knicks would it though. They already loaded at SG with JR Smith, Hardaway and Shumpert. They don't have any other decent Center on the roster, unless they move Stoudemire or Bargnani the...

I will never understand the NBA's injury policy especially when it comes to contracts. I don't get why guys gets full value when they don't play or why the teams don't get a break when they don't. There should be some kind of stipulation to where they only gets 50-60% of the normal rate when they ar...

Let's be honest, you bumped this thread originally to throw his recent success in people's face and mock those guys that doubted him. So I'm not sure why you would be so sensitive to one of those guys (me) defending our stance or fighting back.

Way to jump in a page late..

Gordon isn't going anywhere. They have been shopping him for years and no one is biting. Teams can pick-up comparable guys for much less and he is still very injury prone. He'll be around another year, at least. I'd be pretty pissed if they signe...

Just a bad game and tough to watch. The Spurs put on a clinic and did it with their back-ups mainly. I don't understand what they are talking about on the post game show. How is this a moral victory? They got destroyed. The game wasn't close the entire 2nd half. At least the season is almost over.. ...
