NBA Rumors and Rants

Mutombo will be back!

Mutombo will be back!

Elton Brand, out at least a month with a shoulder injury, proves once again that traitors never win! Sounds like another serious injury preventing the 80 million dollar man from actually deserving that payday.

Doc Rivers spoke out about acquiring Center Dikembe Mutombo saying he expects him to be playing soon and most likely will end up back in Houston. “We’re over the [salary] cap so it’s tough for us to do a lot of stuff, but we’re looking at everybody.”

Raymond Felton could be possibly traded to Golden State for Anthony Randolph or Brandon Wright. With the emergence of Augustin to the offense, the Bobcats could lose Felton without any value at the end of the season. The time to hesitate is over.

Monta Ellis comes off the suspended list today, which leaves the Warriors either trading or releasing a player. Marcus Williams is the notable name being tossed around for release. As the news progressed it looks more like he will just be released and paid his $1.26 million salary.

Antoine “Walka Walka” Walker is expected to get a contract buyout from the Grizzlies today. Antoine’s just is looking for a place to play with a team that can use his skills and errant three point shots. But the Walker wiggle is priceless enough; maybe Oklahoma City could get some joy from that, while Sonics fans down their heads.

Those trade rumors surrounding the Heat and Cavs trading Shawn Marion for Varejao and Wally Szczerbiak, respectively, appear to be untrue, according to a Cleveland.com report. I guess the Cavs are worried about messing with the ride they’re on right now. They also want the most bang for their buck in return for the Wally contract, not just a so-called big man in Marion. All they need is a more agile player than Wally who won’t  depress you with a rollercoaster ride of emotion.

A couple of games tonight: San Antonio at Orlando and Phoenix at Portland.

‘Twas the Week Before Christmas

Ho Ho Ho

Ho Ho Ho

Twas the week before Christmas so grab your salt shakers,
No NBA team was challenging Boston,
Not even Kobe and the Lakers.
All the banners are hung In the Garden with care,
In the hope Red is watching and the 18th will appear.
KG and the Truth, Perk, Rondo and Ray,
15 in a row, what a sun shiny day!

Then what to my wondering eyes should appear,
King James in the east with a bench who did more than cheer,
They picked up a point guard and I picked up a glass,
I would love for Perkins to beat Varejao’s ass.
But they’ve learned to play defense so will it all last,
Maybe bring the Celtics a challenge like one of year’s past,

Now the Lakers start is what everyone expected,
Oh they’ll win it all, with Bynum uncontested?
But just wait and see when their true colors are showing,
Their Euro players at the disco with their whistles a blowing.
So while Odom and Luke are enjoying the sun,
Toughness remains a question but no denying their run.

So there’s the top 3 and the pot still stirs,
The Magic, Mavs, Nuggets and the still mighty Spurs.
6 coaches now fired and trades yet to be working,
Only Chauncey and the Nuggnutts truly been lurking.
So if you got a ten piece now don’t be Stingy,
After all it’s christmas season, drink booze and binge!

Down the chimney he came with a leap and a bound,
But went straight to work with not even a sound.
He ate all his cookies and none went to waste…,
And as I remember he yelled out…”Kobe how’s my ass taste!”

Spread the cheer, have a beer!
