    So who goes where this summer? Who has the best draft?
    Its that time of year again, baseball is now the sports ruler and football down the short road.

    Suns and T-Wolves in talks to send Jefferson to Suns for Amare.
    Knicks are considering going after T-Mac.

    It will be an interesting of season for Ainge because the "big 3" only have one more season together (contractually) and something must be done for the future.

    I have a question for those back in Boston about last years' 2 draft picks and do they have a future on the Celtics? I really haven't seen or heard much about them.

    Part of a GK Interview a few days ago. Haven't heard much else.

    Staying course coach's aim for Nuggets

    Q: Is this correct — you would hope you could get an extension this summer, but you don't know if that's going to happen for sure?

    A: I think there's a possibility of that happening. For me to address that is unfair. It's their choice. But the decision has an impact — upon me, upon my staff, upon some of the players, upon the philosophy of what is the future game plan. I'll be honest with you, the challenges that we have overcome and what we've pushed the team to, to make a change now or to play philosophical musical chairs, I think, would be very confusing to a lot of people.

    Q: J.R. Smith improved last season. You've said he will likely start next season. But whether it's as a starter or playing starter's minutes, what does he need to do more consistently?

    A: I think all great talents, from Michael Jordan to Kobe Bryant, it's developing how to be a special talent, with the team always being the most important thing. The "team-ness" when Chauncey Billups got here, or just the general changes we made with team being first, it has to continue to grow. It has to continue to be the factor. When you have great individual offense scorers like Carmelo (Anthony) and J.R., those are guys who sometimes break away from that arena. J.R., we know that we've got to put up with some of his craziness and wildness, but the more he becomes team-efficient, the better he'll become as an all-star type player.

    Q: What will it take to become the best team in the Western Conference?

    A: I think it's continuing the commitment to the culture of playing the right way. You have five, six young kids — from Melo to Nene to J.R. to Renaldo Balkman — that can get better, substantially better. Our veteran guys have to stay in shape and stay committed. They're not the guys who are going to spend a lot of time in the gym, but they've got to come back in great shape and understand that we've got to go a couple more wins than 54 to get to where we want to go next year. They all understand the power of the home- court advantage in the playoffs. And the second thing is being more of a mature team at the end of games and understanding fourth- quarter basketball a little bit more. I think we were good at that in the regular season, but not in the playoffs. . . . There will always be thoughts toward tinkering, and we do have free agents we've got to figure out. Sustaining will be harder than people think it is. We didn't make a little step, we made a double-step.

    The proposed Jefferson and the 6th pick this year to the Suns for Amare is already dead. Smart move by the T-Wolves, Jefferson is a budding star and then add the 6th overall pick for Amare? WTF?! The GM should be fired for even considering it.

    yeah, the Suns blew it with Amare. Should never have never given him that contract. He knew he had the knee issue well before the contract was signed. He so played management...and now he is a spoiled bitch full of himself. And we are stuck with him in a no-win situation. The Suns will never get a fair amount in return.

    So TMZ is reporting Jerry Buss was playing poker by himself (I am not a poker expert, or even a player, but how do you play by yourself?) during the parade:



    This would tend to lend creedence to a story I heard about game 5: A buddy of mine works as a pharmecutical salesman. He visited a doctor the other day, and the doc told him that not only was Jerry Buss not at game 5, which is true, but that he was sitting next to him at a poker table during the game not even watching....that pic is kinda sad, actually.

    So the odds makers are still swinging on Lebron's pecker eh? They have them at +300 to Boston's +500 and the Lakers at +250.

    I wonder just how Cleveland will repair the chinks in the armor that were exploited this year?
    Boston is getting KG back and I think that Bill Walker will be stepping up more as well and Big Baby and Rondo have established themselves too.
