    Default Metta

    Wouldnt it be awesome if the Raptors picked up Metta and paired him with Pysho T??

    Kidding aside tho, wouldnt that be a killer defense??

    Lowry, Gay, Metta, Psycho T, JV.

    MWP said he wants to finish in NYC + he likes Knicks offer very much.. so we have no chance.

    The team needs a backup PG before they splurge on any other free agents..

    I also think MWP would take away minutes from Ross. Even though he's more of a SF he would be brought in for his 3&D which I would like Ross to develop more next season. Him being a headcase is also not a good thing.. I would imagine that he'd be a problem in the locker room especially for a non-contending team.

    I think he's interested in playing for NY from what I last heard anyways.

    Artest is so washed up he should be drying next to my dishes.

    Pass. He's not good defensively anymore, and he's horrible offensively. He's not a good leader or stabilizing presence as a veteran. I see only negatives to adding him. ONLY NEGATIVES.

    MWP's reputation exceeds his ability because he is well past his prime. You could say the same thing about other aging players like Steve Nash, Manu Ginobili, etc.

    He actually played pretty decently last season.. at least his offensive numbers were close to his career average. His defense has definitely slipped. I would pass too, but I still think he has a couple of more years left in him.

    He'll need to clear waivers first.

    Cleveland has a need, a relationship through Mike Brown, and cap space.

    But assuming he is not picked up, I think he goes to the Knicks.

    Bynum and MWP on the same team, but without Kobe and Phil.. that's a lethal combination.

    But you don't sign him for his offense. There's nothing about his offense that's worth signing him for. And it really hasn't been all that good since he's been with LA. His best offensive years are far behind him. He's always been a defensive player though, and that ability has dropped off enough that he's not useful enough in that sense to sign him as a stopper now, either. Therefore, in my opinion, there are only negatives to signing such a guy...especially when you throw in that he's a basketcase.

    I can't think of a single reason why he'd be a good fit here.

    Here's hoping M signs with the Knicks. Is that an implosion waiting to happen? Is Isiah the real gm?

    How come everytime a player becomes available or is rumored to be on the trade block, someone always thinks he'd be a nice pick up just because.

    He's matured a great deal and turned into a really good human being; I have a lot of respect for what he's trying to accomplish in his spare time.

    He has a lot to give a young team with desire to play hard every night but I understand the wants of vets when they get to his point in his career.

    Seeing that you've only had 131 posts here so far, this is how most of us entertain ourselves during the off-season.

    Welcome to RR.

    I am also a fan of this guy. Sure he's a flawed character, but you can't doubt that he's trying to be a positive impact in the world.

    and especially just before trade deadline time

    You'd almost think we've got a schedule set up that tells each member when it's their turn to start a thread like this.

    EDIT: TROLL ALERT!!!

    Just got the notice that it's my turn... KRIS HUMPHRIES?

    Rumours suggest that the Celtics want to deal Humphries and or Wallace. If Boston is looking to get serious about tanking...

    Why not Bring back Hump as our back up power forward??? Yes he's overpaid, but he's only got 1 year left

    ESPN trademachine says you can't trade either, but camby (4 mil) for rondo (12 mil) works so i'm assuming Kleiza (4 mil) + one of hansbrough/novak for Hump (12 mil) would work. It's a contract year for hump, so maybe he'll put up good numbers.

    I do hope someone steps up and claims him off waivers. simply because him making threats of not playing to ensure that he gets to free agency, getting his full salary, and still getting to go to the team that he wants amounts to circumventing the spirit of the CBA.
