Nice deal for the Bulls, getting rid of Deng for some solid pieces, Hibbert and Jackson will fill in nicely (Y)


Hibbert is young. S-Jack well past his prime. No idea how I would grade that deal. :P

Well at least they filled the center void that was left behind by poor Noah....

Where did that come from? I am quite content in Dallas and I reckon with my improvements added, I can be a sixth man for the Mavs (Y)

Only thing I'm mad at is how Noah is in Cleveland right now...totally feel for him

2 minutes with ....
By Willard Smith


I bumped into the Dallas Mavericks' shooting guard Andrew Watson in NYC just over a month ago. He had just turned out for The Steve Nash Foundation Charity Classic and was due to fly out to Dallas the next morning ahead of the commencement of the Mavs' training camp. I did manage to ask him a few questions before he had to leave.

I've heard you've been training with newly retired Steve Nash this off-season. How long have you been doing this?

"This is actually my first year working out with Steve. Usually I would end an NBA season, take a couple of weeks off then head off and join my teammates with the New Zealand National Team. Being out of contract for the first time in my career, I elected to play it safe and skip my national duties this year. They understood and respected my position, as they did with Mark (Moore), who did the exact same thing.

It was actually a pretty unique opportunity in that I would get to work on my game all summer long. It was an invaluable experience working out with Steve. One of his key focuses each off-season is on his core fitness, which was right down my alley of what I needed to work on. Steve is somebody who got better with age and always kept in peak physical shape to ensure he got the best out of his body. Hopefully I can do the same."

It's been a big off-season for you Andrew, namely moving from the Houston Rockets to their in-state rivals, the Dallas Mavericks. Was Steve in your ear trying to get you to sign with Dallas?

"No, not at all. I did chew his ear off at times asking him about the free agency process and what some of the teams were like that he had played for. He was obviously very partial to Dallas and Phoenix. Although he didn't try to push me any way, I do suspect he passed my number along to Dirk (Nowitzki), as he called me shortly after the moratorium ended."

What was Dirk's pitch like?

"He was selling Dallas as a great city to live in with the team having a great owner, great fans and very importantly, the best opportunity for me to win a title. He was there at airport with Mark (Cuban) when I arrived in Dallas later that week, which meant and said a lot about him."

Some people were surprised you left money on the table with Houston. What do you say to thses people?

"Money isn't everything. Besides, money's not something I like to talk about. Houston put together a great offer, as did Dallas. Both had a lot to offer, but in the end I had to follow my heart. I want to win a title and the window is still open with the Mavs to do that. The Rockets picked up a couple of nice young players but the reality was that they are in a rebuilding phase and it's not something I really wanted to go through at this stage of my career. Although rocky at times, I appreciate my time in Houston."

So you think you can win a title with the Mavs?

"I wouldn't be here if I didn't think I could."

Who's your pick for MVP?

"Moses (Chara), he's the complete package. Lebron is very good but Moses takes it to another level in my opinion. I think the 4 years with Coach K is the difference between the two."

Finally, team with best chance, other than Mavs, to win title?

"If I can't choose us (Mavs), then I'd have to say the Cavs. They were unlucky to lose by a single basket in 7 games. They'll be tough to beat, especially since they've added another key piece (Felton)."

What about the Stealth?

"Nah, if they were going to win it, they would've won it by now. They had an All-Star team last season, but basketball is a team game."

PLAYER TO WATCH

There are so many dominating personalities on this team but the player to watch on this team has to be Allen Iverson. If Iverson plays like he did last season off the bench for Seattle, he could win the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year and that would make him the first player since Bill Walton to have won both MVP and Sixth Man of the Year during a playing career.

It’s more than just the possibility of creating history that makes Iverson so interesting. It will be the fact that he may be the ‘X-factor’ in determining whether the Stealth walk away with the hardware after the NBA Finals. No player will be more prone in tilting team chemistry than AI. The veteran is known for his stubbornness and for speaking his mind when unhappy. It is up to Coach Karl to control Iverson’s emotions on and off the court.

If Iverson can stay on track with the task of being the best teammate he could be; this could be the defining season of his (about to be) 18 year career. This is more important than his 2001 campaign in which he won MVP and went all the way to the NBA Finals. Everyone knew that Iverson had it in him and the team built around him was capable of getting through the weak Eastern Conference. In contrast, no one knows if Iverson is ready to take the backseat for an entire 82 game season and then some. No one knows how he will react to a bad game and a subsequent reduction in minutes. No one knows how he will deal with injuries. No one knows how he will deal with not being the top dog; not even at his own position.

Iverson signed on to play with Seattle because he thought he would start at shooting guard. Someone has come in and convinced him to shift his goals but how long will this last for? If the answer is ‘not long’ then the Stealth might be in big trouble.

SEASON OUTLOOK

The Stealth return with essentially the same side that won 59 games last season. They lost a little depth with Wilcox and Ariza leaving but those minutes will be eagerly gobbled up by the starting five and of course, Iverson (see above). The returning Adam Morrison and second year players Jao Wu and Senso Rancati should also prove effective in replacing Ariza and Wilcox’s combined 10 ppg.

The more pressing matters for Seattle are as follows: Jason Kidd as starting point guard; Kevin Durant and Reshawn Tyson; and the overlying defensive struggles of the team.

Jason Kidd made a shock decision to continue with playing basketball. The Stealth had begun to heap point guard duties onto younger guards Aaron Karl and Wu but Kidd’s announcement that he would play at least one more season has curtailed all of that. This is great news for Seattle because Kidd has been instrumental in all of their playoff success. However, one will always wonder whether his body will be able to keep up with the NBA schedule.

Kidd has stated that his shoulder is feeling fine and that he is in great physical condition. Coach George Karl may have to carefully monitor the 40 year old’s minutes but indications have shown that no one expects Kidd to slow down very drastically.

Kevin Durant and Reshawn Tyson were at the centre of controversy at various stages of last season. Tyson looked likely to jump ship and land in Phoenix or Orlando but a last minute bid by Seattle kept the All-Star in Stealth indigo and grey. However, all if not settled as rumor has it that the Nets and Knicks are putting pressure on Seattle to send Tyson home to one of their teams. However, until a trade happens, Tyson still plays for Seattle alongside four time scoring champion Durant.

The pair’s relationship is vital to keeping the Stealth as a contending team. Durant found out he couldn’t do it alone in the Western Conference Finals this year and it will be interesting to see whether he will change the way he plays to lead this team.

Seattle will need to fix their defensive woes. They tried to address these needs through the NBA draft, which was a very weak effort. Andrew Bogut and David Lee are not getting it done in the post on the defensive end and are often outrebounded on the glass. Coach Karl will need to think of a way to motivate his team to knuckle down on defense – something coach Will Sit was never able to do.

On a final note, the coaching switch from Coach of the Year Will Sit back to Coach Karl will be yet another exciting storyline to keep track of this season.

Seattle could win 62-65 games this season. They are in great shape to tackle any Western Conference rivals come the postseason. On paper, they still have the best team in the league but after so many seasons, hope is running out that this collection of talent will ever make the NBA Finals.

AP Wire
Kolden Schwartzkopf

Swiss Police are still investigating the Bump and Run incident in the Swiss Alps a few days ago. Tiago Splitter, who recently signed with the Spurs of the NBA, was biking along on his merry way when out of nowhere a driver hit him and then went speeding off.
The Car which hit Tiago had specialized plates, police will not release the information of these plates. The reason for this secrecy we have discovered through a leak from the Prime Minister's office is that this could be the result of hit ordered by a Drug Dealer who has special interest in the case of Benny Hinn http://forums.nba-live.com/viewtopic.php?f=133&t=60729&p=1048229&hilit=benny+hinn#p1048229 and possible in the Attempted shooting of Tim Tebow http://forums.nba-live.com/viewtopic.php?f=133&t=60729&hilit=benny+hinn&start=2750#p1163330, currently putting up some nice numbers for the Seattle Clouds. (See a Legend is Born II for both of these stories)

It was first thought that the driver probably thought they hit a deer. At least until that was the idea until they saw some strange anomalies. The anomalies? Tiago was on the left side of the road while the car swerved from the right. Also there were no brake or skid marks before hitting Tiago.
Tiago also said that the driver was wearing a Santa suit with a Green Mask. Thus the Chief of Police, Aberdeen Joder*, has dubbed the person of interest as The Hemp Grinch, this name was coined ofter the leak.

*Aberdeen Joder is distant relative of the NBA's Manfred Nissley.

I think 60 wins are reachable, but most likeable you end up with 55 to 58 wins and go into postseason as the 2nd seed in the West. I don't know about their complete roster, but if Rashard Lewis is just another piece to the Kings roster, they are the top contenders once again.

Nice preview. I reckon that you will be looking at 55 wins, probably 2-3 seed, but this will be the season you go all the way. I think there may be some minor rejigging of the roster come the trade deadline as well.

Don't think you'll win 62. I reckon you'll fall off a bit since home court didn't help you in the playoffs last year, and your team arguably got slightly worse.

I concur with hova, you'll be able to get 55+ wins no problem if there isn't any major injury woes to your team, but it sounds like the Kings just got more stacked :?

Nets and Stealth In Negotiations Over Tyson Deal

OCTOBER 29, NEW JERSEY – The New Jersey Nets have come out of nowhere to be the favorites to snatch Reshawn Tyson from the Seattle Stealth. The Nets have reportedly opened up communications with the Stealth about trading for the All-Star SG by offering a package of Yi Jianlian, Rudy Fernandez and Jeremy Mason.

This potential deal would see the Stealth land a more suitable starter at PF in Yi plus two young swingmen to compensate for the loss of Tyson. Yi has made giant strides in New Jersey and looks likely to push for an All-Star position on any other Eastern Conference team. Mason was the number 1 pick of the 2010 NBA Draft and is one of the most pure shooters in the league.

The piece that has Nets fans buzzing is Fernandez who was recently traded for Raymond Felton. Many were confused as to why the team gave away their dependable sixth man for the Spaniard but now the story makes sense in that Fernandez has long been a favorite of Stealth General Manager Will Sit.

If the deal is landed, the Nets’ vision will have paid off and they will get one of the most talented young guards in the game. A starting five that includes Tyson, Carmelo Anthony, Barney Steele and DJ Schmidt is sure to produce plenty of points and highlights. On the other side of the coin, Seattle isn’t losing much as they bring in three quality players and in fact improve their situation at shooting guard by adding two starting caliber players.

Tyson: Home Is Where My Heart Is

OCTOBER 29, SEATTLE – On the eve of the opening games of the 2013-14 NBA season, Seattle Stealth SG Reshawn Tyson has reiterated his desire to play in the New York/New Jersey area where he grew up. Tyson’s name has been thrown around in trade rumors since he signed a 6 year contract with Seattle and the fifth year All-Star is not letting go of his pursuit to be sent home via trade.

However, Tyson has assured fans that he will be all business when Seattle hosts the Philadelphia 76ers to open their campaign for 2013-14. “I am a professional and I am going to approach every game like this,” Tyson said after a morning practice session. He also stated that he was aware of the developments being made by Seattle and the Nets and Knicks, “I’ve heard trades pop up now and then. I know that the guys upstairs are working hard to get something done. This was something I really wanted when I signed the deal. They said that they would accommodate me.”

“I always said it was a tough choice but signing with Seattle made a lot of sense,” Tyson explained, “If I went to Phoenix or any other team, it would have been hard for me to win. The silver lining is that I could be in New Jersey with Carmelo (Anthony) and Barney (Steele). I think we would be a contender.”

The trade looks good, but losing Ty means KD should give more effort in playing but he can't win it alone. Unless Rudy will be a 20 point man.

If you trade Ty for that package, you can kiss 60 wins goodbye. Probably even 55.

Don't do it. Getting those three will just make it harder to split the minutes. Ty is a guy who can give you 20 point in 35 mins every night.

It's not that bad a move.Mason is a former no1 pick,and a solid pure shooter.Yi ,as you said, has a lot of potential,and will strengthen your bench so much,while Fernandez..... is ok. Maybe test how the trade will shape up the team,and if you don't like the outcome,don't do it.

@mandich,that's what you get when you piss Jae :P You're really stuck with this????

Now I understand what's up with mandich. :lol:

Also... the trade seems fair to me. Ah well. You will all see if I did/will pull the trigger in due time. :) Need to wait a lil before I can because Rudy was just traded to New Jersey.

I have just done my BDL ranking teams 10-1 article. I have decided that the 30-21 and 20-11 articles will not be as indepth as the 10-1 article due to time restraints. I can't write a paragraph on all 30 teams if you want analysis on each player included in my top 10 players by position articles.

Updates should resume soon. :)
