    (1) It's hard to argue with T(rade)M(ark) hitting 40+, but they sure looked sluggish out there at times. Coach was not happy.

    (2) Did ya hear the one about the complaining star and the aging African being sent to the setting sun, for -get this- another complaining star and an aging contract that will hurt rocket pockets for a long,long time?

    The Legend Returns! Welcome back Oeilpere!

    It's been a while since we had a cryptic message. Mutombo and Francis going to the Suns?

    Oh man. I am blown away. An OP thread.

    Welcome back! Welcome back!

    OK. I think I get most of it. However, let's analyze "setting sun."

    Phoenix is too easy. The sun sets last in CA. That means...

    what is this? SF3 + Deke for Marcus banks? Was Banks a Morey draftee? That's a bad deal...

    Francis and Deke - that salary isn't very high to land a marquee player.. :confused:

    We wouldn't do that deal. Is Diaw complaining? I could see that. He would run the HP-offense like no other.

    Complaining star? I don't get it. Francis? McGrady isn't complaining, right? Yao?

    That wouldn't make any sense.

    We're not going to trade a big for a guard, and we certainly aren't going to take on more salary.

    Not to mention we cut Butler, if we were going to trade Deke, we wouldn't have cut Butler

    Francis can't be traded until Dec. 15th, Deke until Jan 1st according to realGM. Puzzle just got a lot more complicated.
