Latest on that trade -

Memphis didn't want to lose Dillon Brooks JUST TO GET OUBRE.

High praise for KO.

Heh.

With Celts bigs (Baynes Horford) being down over the past week or so, some minutes have opened for Robert "Time Lord" Williams, and he has been making the most of it.

So far his offensive contribution is setting picks and the alley-oop. He doesn't have a shot per se, but he has a real knack for boards and blocks and has been a blast to watch on the D end and is making his presence more than felt in the paint.

He is about as raw as rookies come, but there is a lot of talent there and hopefully Coach Brad can bring it out.

NBA = National Basketball Accounting:

Uber will be an RFA and WASH let it be known they won't pay what it takes.  Why lose a good role player to get a rental, a guy you can pick up in free agency?   If Uber becomes too expensive, Memf risks losing Dillon and Uber.  Griz not in a hurry and need to keep their salary in check.

Translation: Griz wanted Uber, just not at any price.  Unsure what the going rate will be, they decided to sit/wait it out and keep a role player they like.



Knick game (post-replay):

- Loved the play where Kemba decided the loose ball was his.

- The play where Vonleh shoves Batum out of the way and scores was pivotal.   If an off. foul on Vonleh (er, which it looked like), Knix would be down 4 around the one minute mark.  Down 2, they brought it to OT.

- That Hornets court is pretty wild.  I like the honeycomb paint.  The teal-purple spread is a bit much.  Also, those teal sweatsuits are kind of odd. 

- Knox had a very good 1st half
- Mud was really feeling it all game.
- Tim was silent
- Zeller kicked ass
- Batum reminded me why I used to say he was the next Grant Hill (apparently including injuries sapping his powers for years).  He really kept the ball moving and had some nice passes.  And his shot was on.
- Monk had some nice dishes.  Also makes some dumb plays.  Young.

- Hornets are a team of role players.
But it's not adding up to something greater.
While the Knix went on a big run (20-5 or whatever), Hornytoads were content to launch 3's.  Didn't drive.  Didn't get FT's (all game).  There 3's were clanky; Lamb lost all confidence in his shot.  And they rolled over.

Clearly Hornets ignored Monk, to their detriment.

I also thought they should have inserted Monk.

Monk needs to toughen up. We broke him well before crunch time.

Trade seems back on without Memphis as middleman. Phoenix sends Ariza for Oubre and Rivers.

A simple case of Memphis having too many Brooks.
