    Thanks,

    I would like to hear your opinion on why is TMAC seeing Dr.'s located on the moon. It is sure taking a ton of time to get there.


    TMAC = STARBURY'ED?

    I think Tmac will pull a Marbury after learning that we were trying to trade him.

    Awesome, thanx for the link. I'd call in, but I feel like any question I'd ask would be stupid.

    My main question would honestly be, do we have to make a big name trade, ie, get a Carter or an Amare. You think maybe switch out a Ron/Tmac with a Yi/Lopez or a Barbosa, or whatever role player trade might be a better situation. Obviously matching up the contracts might be hard, but honestly I wouldn't necessarily call it a failure as long as we ship out Tmac. Maybe I'm insane...

    I'd still love Vinsanity and Yao tho, but Battier is untouchable...

    two man questions, imo.

    1.) mcgrady situation, who is he visiting? where? the possibility of him trying to cover up something when the MRI showed it's nothing. basically anything more clearer on the "tmac" fiasco would be great.

    2.) legitimacy of the trade rumors, carter? amare? someone else? tmac involved? battier/artest just for carter?

    thanks!

    I would appreciate, in your ever eloquent words, an understanding of wht is, or might be going on, in the head and heart (sic) of the great talent and enigma which is Tracy McGrady.

    I would also like to know what the long range thoughts and plans are of the Rocket organization; this season and going forward. The possible loss of strikability during the great summer of 2010's feeding frenzy.

    Regrettably, I will need to hear your answers on the podcast as I will be out of reach of a radio and phone.

    Thank you...xiki

    But we would most likely have to give up Artest to get him.

    How amazing would it be to trade T-mac, Landry and Head for Butler and some fillers?

    Alston
    Artest
    Butler
    Scola
    Yao

    SICK lineup

    I'll be in the car. Can you ask them why their signal goes bad after 6PM every day? Really annoying.

    haha, so it's not just me.

    I'll be driving listening to it at 5:40 and as it gets darker outside the signal gets worse and worse and eventually goes out.

    My question is given how shaky the Western Conference is looking outside of LA/San Antonio, with Phoenix imploding, New Orleans about to deal Chandler in a move that undoubtedly weakens them, with Denver overachieving and Portland looking beatable: Do we need a blockbuster move? Could we theoretically just "get it together" and make a run with what we have (maybe a minor tweak or two) or should we be dead set on making a big move that shakes things up?

    I'm at a bit of a crossroads with regards to the "big move" scenario or just trying to make a smaller move to upgrade the point and rolling with what we have. What do you think?

    Carter a quitter, no heart? Chad Ford has another take:
    “no one predicted that Carter, at the age of 32, would put up All-Star numbers on a rebuilding team. But he has played his heart out and, with Devin Harris, has made the Nets respectable"

    Yeah, I was rolling my eyes at the "Carter is a quitter" talk too. Get it over it. It was four years ago. Kobe submarined two NBA Finals teams yet you don't hear people calling him a cancer, quitter or anything of the sort.

    I have a feeling Morey is gonna try to pull a veteran pg for cash or head, Bobby Jackson style.
