    McGrady to the Knicks....WHY??

    Only thing I can come up with is that his contract expires after the season and that opens up more cap room for them to try and get LeBron, Wade, or Bosh.

    What other reason would they need?

    Re: McGrady to the Knicks....WHY??

    That is exactly why. They will go very hard after LeBron and when that doesn't work, unless the Cavs go get him, they will go after Bosh. I still think that somehow the Cavs will look to get Bosh making them IMO the best team in the NBA and maybe by a lot. The Magic will be the team that needs to make a move. I think they may go after Wade but I also think that they gave up their best piece of trading property last year in getting rid of Courtney Lee. I thought he was going to be a stud.

    As has been said, it has very little to do with the man, and more to do with his expiring contract. I think they also wanted to unload Jeffries and his big contract.

    Those would be interesting pairings. I think Wade and Howard could make a nice run together, but James and Bosh would be a monster. Great matchups there.

    Now if they could only find a taker for Eddie Curry then they could get 2 A list FA's.

    Bosh and Howard with Nelson, Peitrus, and Lewis would be unstoppable. There woudln't be a team that could beat them more than once in a 7 game series IMO.

    I don't think the Cyclones would take Eddie Curry.

    Would make the east basically a 2 team race. Don't think Boston could keep up with that.

    Boston's old enough that they're about done anyway. About time for a major retooling there, isn't it?

    Yes, Boston is probably already to old but by next year it will be certain. A retool is in order.

    True...KG, Pierce, and Allen don't look the same after they got their title. Do like Rondo though.

    They knew that team was only built for a couple years when they put it together.

    It wasn't a surprise. If you're building for the long run, guys my age don't get you there.

    uhhh why not? T-Mac is 17 mil off the books after this year and they ditched Jeffries who was 9 mil... now they are something like 30+ million under the cap next year. go after two of Bosh, Wade, Johnson, LeBron
