Trade with the Clippers? - "The Bulls, meanwhile, continue to debate the pros and cons of Stoudemire. According to NBA sources, they also are monitoring the Clippers' situation to see if Chris Kaman or Marcus Camby can be pried loose.
Two league executives said Sunday it appears less likely Stoudemire will become a Bull, if he is traded at all."
Or maybe the Amare deal is still on? - "After last night's All-Star Game, Stoudemire sounded resigned to the idea that he would be traded and that it could happen as early as today. League sources in Phoenix have hinted that the long rumored deal between the Suns and Chicago could get consummated as early as today, a deal that would send the expiring contract of Drew Gooden, Thabo Sefolosha and Tyrus Thomas to the Suns in exchange for Amar'e Stoudemire."
And maybe TT is overhyped? - "So why, in spite of all this, would I be willing to trade this budding young hoss for an apparent malcontent/head-case who "can't rebound"? Because that malcontent can really, really score, and I agree with Kelly Dwyer that the root of the Bulls' recent problems are much more offense-related than defense-related.
A couple things first: While Amare' has never been a great rebounder, it's only this season where he's been hanging around the dreaded Aldridge line of 12.8% TRB. Indeed, throughout his career, Amare' has been an adequate-to-good defensive rebounder (career DRB 20.1); it's only at the offensive end where his boarding gets suspect. That doesn't concern me too much as, so long as any deal does not include Noah, Amare' will be playing alongside one of the best offensive rebounders in the league."
Stupid rookie rankings based on the Rookie/Sophomore game - "Derrick Rose – Chicago Bulls – 4 points, 7 assists, 1 steal
After playing a game Thursday night and missing an entire night's worth of sleep just getting to Phoenix, D-Rose just didn't have it in him. He led his team in assists, but couldn't find the energy to really compete."
But KD was ridiculous in that game.
