Pax to resign - "Do I know this to be fact? No. But two people in the know maintain John Paxson will resign as Bulls GM soon after Thursday's trade deadline expires."
Someone agrees with me, we don't need Amare - "I am in the rapidly shrinking minority of those who say trading for Stoudemire is the wrong move. Don't worry: Whatever you call me, my wife has called me worse."
Pre-Nash Amare v. Current TT - "In 2003-2004, Amare Stoudemire was a 21 year old, second year player on the pre-Nash, pre-D'Antoni Suns. Here are his Per36 stats from that season compared to Tyrus' since December 1st:
Per 36 Minutes
Amare, age 21 - 20.1 points, 8.8reb, 1.4ast, 1.1stl, 1.6blk, 3.1to, 3.3pf, 15.4fga, 7.7fta, .536 TS%
Tyrus, age 22 - 14.9 points, 8.3 reb, 1.5ast, 1.5stl, 2.5blk, 1.7to, 3.7pf, 11.0fga, 5.3fta, .559 TS%
I admittedly cut some corners since Tyrus is a year older here, with one more year of NBA seasoning, and these numbers are for just his three good months instead of a whole year. But three months is a decent chunk of basketball, and I was surprised how well Tyrus matched up."
