Yeah, Denver doesn't seem to be getting any better.
Guess it is better for Anthony to leave

The thing about Nets owner is that he doesn't care about the salary cap. He's willing to pass it and pay double because he is simply that ballin'. I don't think it will be all too long before you see the Nets (they really need to change that name), become an All-star team. The top free agents will slowly begin to make their way over to Brooklyn.

Just because you are willing to pay the luxury tax, it does not mean you will be a contender. See the Knicks. The thing with the NBA is that having cap room is more often than not an illusion. A GM can overpay for a guy and use the cap just to let his owner/fans know he did something (Brand to the Sixers), or they can have a shit load of cap but have no interest from anyone (Clippers). So even if they spend their money intelligently, a lot of it has to do with chance, because its extremely rare that a bunch of Superstars become FAs and you JUST happen to have the money to sign em all like Heat. Unlike hockey, a game changer in the NBA is so damn rare, so really even if you had money, would you want to pay someone like Joe Johnson and HOPE he becomes a superstar?


On the flip side, a team like the Thunder is really smart with its cap, they use it to get value guys from other teams that couldn't keep said guys because of the cap (Eric Maynor from the Jazz and Sefolosa from the Bulls), and they save the cap to sign worthwhile guys for big money (Durant).

Having typed all that borderline bs, chances are if Melo goes there, he'll somehow persuade CP3 to come after his contract his up ahahahhahaha

FCK, so I went and bought the new PS3 move pack.... downloaded the 2k11 and Elite 11 demos...

geez Elite 11 just blows, I can't get in the groove whatsoever, the player movement seems awkward for some reason, and even when I switch the controls back to the old button style still I just don't feel any joy when playing.

2k11 though I have only played demos over the years never really got into it, I gotta say surprisingly 2k11 feels better, and this coming from a Live player since Live 99... All the things I didn't like before about 2K (player movement, getting past defenders realistically) seems to feel and be better than in Elite 11.


still haven't figured out how to fully control my player in 2K, but I have a feeling once I do, it will feel a lot better than being in full control of my player in Elite 11...
plainly put I had some nice moves and finishes that put a smile on my face in 2k11 playing with Kobe, while in Elite 11 nothing but frustration while trying to blow by Ray Allen with Kobe... unsuccessfully.... can anyone tell me the last time you saw Ray Allen use his footspeed to stop Kobe in his tracks when Kobe was in full stride and Allen was on his heels ? haha, fckin joke




and yea Nets are gonna make a turn around this year with or without Melo, they got rebooted in big way and I think it's gonna show on the court.

I'm pretty dedicated. I run my own league on ESPN too. I can start one up if you guys would like.

I prefer to run head2head:most cats wins, 9-cat league.
