I think Gasol will be used in the pick and pops, where he'll get clean looks at the top of the key all day long. When Nash sees daylight he'll drive to the hoop, attract the defender, and hand it off to Bynum for catch and dunks.

    Gasol and Bynum should minimize his defensive liabilities more than any team has. He doesn't have the foot speed to stay in front of people on the wings, but he can effectively funnel them toward the help.

    He's a great fit for any offense, but especially this Lakers team. He'll add a fluidity and rhythm to where they'll actually resemble a team, instead of just force feeding Kobe or Bynum on a given night. Ultimately he's going to make everybody's job easier, I'm excited to watch him play with such a talented roster.
    Pure poetry. When I close my eyes I can picture it so clearly, and it's beautiful.

    Correct. The amount itself would be the same. BUT, the Suns can "front load" that amount as a signing bonus.

    Quite the off-season for Dallas. They whiffed on Deron Williams, lost Jason Terry, and will now lose Jason Kidd.

    Marc Stein ‏@ESPNSteinLine
    In another unforeseen twist of this wild offseason, sources say Jason Kidd has decided to leave Mavs and join Knicks on a multiyear deal


    I have a feeling they'll throw money at Ramon Sessions, in a panic move.

    I think in the end, if he doesn't win it all again, Dirk will be happy having won one ring -- against LeBron James and the Miami Heat no less.

    Definitely. The shape he was in entering this season was probably indicative of that.

    Yet again, this shows that it does not pay to hoard your cap space in order to sign the top 2-3 free agents. I think this has actually worked once in the last God knows how many years (Miami).

    This has to hurt for Cuban who pinned his hopes on Williams, then seeing Nash and Kidd sign elsewhere, and letting Chandler go before the season, weakening a chance at a repeat last season.

    Mavericks are in deep trouble that's for sure, but they don't really need Jason Kidd and I doubt he lasts 3 more seasons.

    Class act? Steve Nash was well known in the Suns organization to be big the biggest womanizer on the team, before he was divorced. Great ball-player, too bad he had a mediocre supporting cast for the last 3-4 years in a Suns uniform. I'll miss watching him play, but don't confuse good player and good after game interview with good person....
    How can all of you still root for that traitor Nash! THIS IS WORSE THAN WHAT LEBRON DID TO CLEVELAND because the Lakers are the enemy, the team that we as SUNS most hate with a passion. He could have gone to any other team and don't give me that family crap, his kids are young and he only has a couple years left. HE FORCED A TRADE TO THE LAKERS and that's the bottom line. As far as I'm concerned he is a backstabbing traitor, a liar, and I don't ever want him to be in our Ring of Honor.
    I'm just being real, you can spin it all you want but this is breaking your heart just as much as mine but go ahead and try to pretend like this does not burn. You know it in your heart that this is not right. He care less about us as fans, he's all about himself and uses his family as an excuse. All you guys are a bunch of fake pansies, don't be mad at me for telling it like it is. Man up!
    He is the new Lebron and Favre. He failed talking Phoenix to the Finals, I hope he fails in L.A. #traitor
    This famiily values stuff is all bogus as he won't be spending any more time with them as a Laker. What Nash will be doing is pursuing his after NBA career in making videos in under the experts in Hollywood. This lip service of family values is being hit hard and by the mere fact they trotted it in neon lights tells us they arr just selling more PR than truth. BTW, Nash's videos have been received very lukewarmly and with lots of reserve so Hollywood is where he can get his after NBA career going under the good graces of the Hollywood Laker fans.

    No, just to conference finals. He lost the debate to Kobe.

    The comments section on any Az Central article always brings out the idiots.

    Well, I think we can all agree that commenters on these types of sites tend to be comprised of some of the lowest forms of life. Just the absolute worst of the worst. And when you add in the fact that 99% of these people are from Arizona, I wouldn't expect anything less than these comments.

    *No offense to the Arizona boardies. I know you all are alright. It is the general nutjob, militant nu-rednecks that seem to be multiplying there.

    They did draft him, originally. I hope he's able to stay healthy. Sad to see such a talented athlete throw in the towel at such a young age.

    Steve Nash in his prime.
    Joe Johnson coming into his prime.
    Shawn Marion in his prime.
    Amare Stoudemire in his prime.

    One by one they walked away with minimal compensation, if any at all. The biggest piece we got in return was an over-the-hill Shaq. Fuck you Robert Sarver. FUCK YOU.

    I'm pleased with the Knicks bringing Kidd in, especially if they definitely match Houston's offer to Lin and keep him in New York. Kidd may not offer much on the court, though he should at least be strong enough to take some of the pressure off Lin.

    Better still, it really does seem as though they're going to let Fields go to Toronto without trying to match.

    Eric Gordon Burning Bridges

    On Thursday, Eric Gordon fanned the flames of every burning bridge back to the Big Easy. The New Orleans Hornets guard is telling everyone who will listen why he would prefer to play with the Phoenix Suns. At this point, the Hornets have to at least be considering the possibility of not matching Eric Gordon's contract with the Suns.

    First quote
    Eric Gordon said, "Phoenix just showed a lot more interest, overall, and definitely in how they negotiated. I don't know what New Orleans' plans are for me. There are no negotiations right now."

    Well that's a silly statement. The Hornets didn't have to roll out the red carpet in their negotiations with Eric Gordon. Why should the Hornets waste their time and energy on a wine and dine knowing they could match any offer? Besides, Eric Gordon has been in New Orleans since December. I think he knows this team and city inside and out.

    Second quote
    Eric Gordon also said, "They drafted another shooting guard, a combo guard like me, which tells me they have another plan."

    This line of thought is the only one I agree with Gordon on (to a point). I was also surprised when New Orleans drafted Austin Rivers. But a team like the Hornets that's rebuilding has to draft the best player available. And if the Hornets legitimately plan on converting Rivers to point guard, then Eric Gordon's spot is secure.

    Third quote
    Finally, Eric Gordon said, "Phoenix signed two other young guys that are very talented. They're already established and they're already going to get better."

    Now that may be the most ridiculous thing I've ever read. Eric Gordon is referring to Michael Beasley and Goran Dragic who also signed free agent contracts with the Suns. Any two NBA veterans are going to be more "established" than any two rookies. That doesn't mean Anthony Davis and Austin Rivers won't be better in a couple of years.

    New Orleans Hornets
    You can bet the New Orleans Hornets front office is considering all the ramifications of matching the Suns' offer. I know the prevailing wisdom is that the Hornets will match Gordon's contract because they can't let him walk away for nothing. But if the Hornets let Eric Gordon sign with the Suns, they will save $58 million over the next four years.

    There must be other quality free agents out there on which that money can be better spent by the Hornets.

    Pretty ridiculous statements, but please, give me somebody worth watching on the Suns.

    To me, his quotes just read as someone who hopes not to get his contract matched by the Hornets. Building up the Suns organization in hopes that they can work out a sign and trade.
