    I think I recall when the mid season trade rumors were swirling, Hakeem stated that he wanted to play in a warm weather climate (i.e. Miami, Phoenix). The last time I checked, Toronto is pretty much a frozen tundra. In fact I visited up there in the middle of July one summer, and recall wearing a sweatshirt to a Blue Jays game.

    Knowing this, do you really think Dream wants to play north of the border???

    Greedy partners in action Hakeem and Fegan see a pot of $$$$$ in a faraway igloo and they will persist through miles of snow in flip-flops to get to it.

    He is going to freeze his a$$ off up there....I can tell you that. Im beginning to think that Fegan is the devil himself.

    If I'm not mistaken, that's actually why he ended up in Houston after coming from Africa -- he couldn't deal with the cold weather of New York. I'm not sure, it's been a while since I read his Autobio, but I know he mentions how cold it was in the first city he went to, and he was so happy coming to Houston where he felt more comfortable.

    Hakeem discovered that the cold makes you age slower so he can continue to play and demand top dollar.

    I dont think he wants to leave H-town. I mean the weather is like his native Nigeria, and I know he doesnt want to flee the humidity.....
