Were in the thick of the free agent recruiting wars and the trade market is open
for business. Kevin Walter Youth Jersey . Love it! The team
building process at work with a new CBA in place. Fascinating dynamics at work.
Here are five quick NBA thoughts. 1. Steve Nash: Whether you like the risk (I
agree with it) of going after a 38-year-old point guard or not, you gotta love
the Raptors laying it on the line and letting him know they mean business. To
me, its a statement that this organization wants to get this thing turned
around. Bottom line, the current team has minimal player leadership in its
primary core and Nash is the epitome of what you want in a captain. By the way,
somehow, some way, they have to get a starting small forward. I said it last
week and Ill say it again, Im high on Ilyasova (Bucks) even though hes a 3/4.
Hes going to be a very good pro the next 5/7 years. 2. Terrence Ross (Raptors):
Loved him at Washington. Is he ready to play/impact winning right now? No. Do I
think he can be a steal in a few years when he fills out. Absolutely! The young
man can shoot it. He has an explosive first step, decent handle and creativity
and solid feel for the game. Hell guard for you and is a good competitor.
Jeremy Lamb and Austin Rivers are more well known to Raptors fans because they
play in the East in the ACC and Big East. The Pac 10 has been down of late but
this guy is legit. Only time will tell if this works out. I think its a solid
gamble. A former Raptors GM reached a bit years back taking a raw and far from
filled out Tracy McGrady (not saying hes the next T-Mac) out of Mount Zion
Academy and it worked out pretty well as a long-term pick, even though he left
Toronto. You have to draft based upon how the guy will play in 3/5/7 years when
you have an eighth pick. Yes, the Raptors need a starting 3-man now but in a few
years, this kid could be a keeper. 3. Scott Brooks (Thunder): Gets a well
deserved contract extension. He has done a very good job bringing this young
team along since he replaced PJ Carlesimo. Now comes the tough part. He has to
tighten the screws and get his team more focused defensively on a consistent
basis. Their half-court offence must become more discipined and diverse as well.
Elite coaching will get this group to the next notch on the belt. Brooks
deserves that chance; now hes got to bring the true best out in this group. 4.
Atlanta Hawks: Trade Marvin Williams to Utah and dump his two-year, $16 million
contract; not a fan of Williams game. Then, a massive trade with the Nets where
they unload Joe Johnsons four-year, $90 million deal for a bunch of expiring
deals. I really like Johnson but not at his ridiculous salary. With the new
luxury tax, if you pay guys big money, they better produce big and get you
really far or youve got to move on. The Hawks think they can get hometown kid
Dwight Howard and convince Chris Paul that Atlanta is the place. Im not sold
that the Hawks can get this done. Looks like theyre starting over. 5.
Dwight Howard/Chris Paul: These guys will set the tone for the market over the
next 12 months. Howard is probably kicking himself for locking in for one more
year in Orlando because he wanted to look like a decent guy. Now hes stuck and
still in a spot where theyll dictate (as they should) where he goes next. Im
curious to see the deal the Nets try to put together with a possible third or
fourth team.  As far as Paul, youve got to be a bit concerned if youre a
Clippers fan that he didnt re-up. He wants to maintain full control/leverage
which is his right. The pressure on head coach Vinny Del Negro will be immense
(thats an understatement) to get this crew to the next level or the concerns
about Pauls status will overwhelm that franchise. The drama continues in the
game of big-time players trying to be in total control of their destiny.
Different salary world now with a new CBA/luxury tax. Not as easy as it looks or
sounds.   Arian Foster Youth Jersey . The 26-year-old
Podolski will add proven, international class to an Arsenal strikeforce that has
been reliant on the goalscoring exploits of Robin van Persie in a turbulent
campaign this season. Kevin Walter Womens Jersey . The mens soccer
team went to Panama looking to extend its lead atop the CONCACAF qualifying
group, but a lacklustre effort on hostile ground resulted in a 2-0 loss to a far
more energetic opponent. http://www.
