I mean, does it get any sadder than this for Dwight? Kobe is a legend, who has more rings that Howard ever will and instead of learning from the guy, he decides to clown on him.
You can see the tension between the two on and off the court. Reports say that during the All Star game Howard put on Kobe’s jersey and….well here, read it for yourself:
“Amid other reports that the Lakers’ chilly on-court chemistry was spilling into the locker room, we’re told that Howard ‘grabbed Kobe’s uniform, put it on, and imitated him in front of all the other players on the West team. He was joking and berating Kobe’ to fellow NBA stars, including the Clippers’ Chris Paul and Blake Griffin and Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant. The source added Bryant later arrived in the locker room, ‘said hello to everyone on the team except Howard, grabbed his stuff and moved as far away from Howard as he could.”
Tough tough decisions for Danny Ainge up in Boston. There were offers on the table for KG, more specifically: DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe from the Clippers.
But the thing is with Garnett, he’s got a No Trade clause in his contract. No unless he’s willing to go, he can’t be traded. And we already have KG on record saying he “bleeds green.”
Well now Josh Smith is on the block and arguably the hottest item available, Boston wants in. But ATL wants more than Jeff Green and Brandon Bass, the want The Truth.
Yup, Paul Pierce. Trading Pierce is like trading Kobe, you just don’t do it. But this is a grand opportunity goThe trade deadline is Thursday, 3pm.
Brandon Jennings wants out, but he’s a restricted free agent next summer. So he’s got less room to move, as opposed to Monta Ellis. Ellis may very well leave $11 mil on the table in order to become a free agent next season. This is huge, and best believe Ellis can be a legitimate contributor to a true contender next season. The Bucks are on the verge of losing their anchors.
Rose participated in his first 5 on 5 practice since falling to his ACL injury last year.
Coach Tom Thibodeau had this to say:
“He did what everyone else did, just a normal practice. He’s doing what he should be doing, he’s focused on his rehab, doing more and more. We just have to be patient. When he’s ready, he’ll go.” – Coach Thibodeau
