    I'd rather Morey be the one to think they are worth keeping. He's the GM after all.

    Oh, I think its true, really. But what it doesnt say is given a list of other potential players, who would they like to play with MORE.

    "at least until the trade deadline," Howard and Harden add.

    This is a superstar driven league...What Harden wants and what Howard wants will go..If they want Jeremy and Asik here..they will stay...but expect one to be moved by the break or by next year.

    I never believe anything Morey says, and that's not a bad thing.

    it's a player's league. being a huge nfl fan, i've always had a hard time accepting that nba players are basically the gms. God forbid, dwight and howard argue with coach, it's not those two that are getting wacked but the coach. In the nba what the star players want, they get. it's been going since forever.

    Feigen was on a weekend show on 610 last week and basically said those calls about our point guard were made to maury, not the other way around.

    LOF's world just got turned upside down. Harden wants Lin there? This can't be!

    I'm glad. I think they have a shot to be awesome.

    Let's put it this way... we will never have defensive down times with one of Asik or Howard on the floor at all times. And you will always have someone who can play the pick and roll to its full affect with Lin or Harden. We can so utilize them in tandem but in rotation as well

    I'm excited :)
