    Shirley Mention On ESPN

    ESPN Page 2 - The Sports Guy: Logic and the lottery

    8. Charlotte Bobcats
    I'd love to see them pursue Gasol (with the No. 8, the No. 22 and May), re-sign Gerald Wallace and compete with a nucleus of Gasol, Wallace, Ray Felton, Emeka Okafor, Walter Hermann, Adam Morrison and one more free agent swingman like Mo Peterson or Desmond Mason. If they keep the pick, don't they have to take Joakim Noah here? He fits in the "guys who had success in college" theme and gives them a ton of flexibility at the 4/5 spots, right? Whatever they do, I feel like the Bobcats are closer to being good than people realize ... plus, they're the ultimate fantasy team sprung to life, just an ultra-eclectic, improbable mix of recognizable players. If there was ever a franchise that could accommodate a Paul Shirley comeback, this is it.

    The writeup on the Bulls is dumb. Kobe in Chicago would not be a good thing. I'd much rather go after Garnett or even Shawn Marion. I think Kobe is going to wind up staying in LA because no contender is going to give up the farm for him and he won't go to a bad team plus the money situation is the biggest sticking point.

    Could you really call it a comeback? Wouldn't you have to be established in the first place?

    Have you read his book? JT wouldn't give him the time of day when they played against each other in the NBA. I had the same opinion of Paul until I read his book, completely changes your views.

    I found a decent trade that includes Marion and Bryant.

    ESPN.com - NBA - Trade Machine Results

    The Lakers probably wouldn't go for it because of the same division thing, but who knows.

    Why in the world would the Lakers do that? They wouldn't win 30 games.

    There is a ZERO % chance the Lakers trade Kobe to a Western Conference team. If he gets traded it is to the EAST, just like Shaq.

    Classic!!!


    7. Minnesota Timberwolves
    Here's what I think Kevin McHale will do: Wear an ugly sweater, back out of a KG deal at the last second and take Spencer Hawes at No. 7, followed by KG snapping in mid-December after a 30-point loss to the Spurs and killing everyone in Minnesota's locker room except Ricky Davis, who will calmly sit in front of his locker watching it happen while drinking a malt 40.

    rworkman83. I wont read his book because he is a dork. He acts all upitty and JT probably wouldnt give him the time of day because Paul acted like Paul. When I heard him on Cotlar I was so pist off. "Um lets just say some players were doing this and some were doing that. Paul was probably telling on them" I dont know, he just rubs me the wrong way now. Dont get me wrong, I loved him at ISU, but now he drives me nutz, so I will NOT read his book.

    Clone11, you are just bitter that JT and friends took the cash and lost to Hampton in a feeble attempt to shave points. You know it's true. :-)
