    huh, interesting. I didn't think the WS dates were pre-determined. That would be cool though. I'm hitting Penn St for the Michigan game that weekend. Will be nice to not have to worry about selling any WS tix.

    Man, you guys really get ahead of yourselves. Long ways to go fellas and if the season ended today, your team is not in the tournament let alone in the final round.

    I hear you, mostly just busting balls.

    The bullpen is that bad?

    yes. put it this way...the only guy in the pen I have confidence in when he comes into the game is contreras. romero has been an absolute disaster and he's their only lefty (they just called up bastardo this week, but his primary pitch is a low 90s fastball -- not what you want from a LH specialist).

    madson has been decent recently, but he's hit or miss. durbin is ok too. as a whole, it's not a good situation

    That's pretty brutal. Rough when you hacve to rely on Contreras. I know he has been pretty good this year but still, never a good thing when he's your most reliable bullpen arm.

    I love how this thread has nothing to do with basketball or the sixers. That's really how it should be since no one cares about the NBA

    just a rumor at this point...

    http://www.prosportsdaily.com/comments/ ... 09322.html

    76ers are a perfect fit in deal that could send Melo to the Nets
    0 Comment September 16 CBSSports.com "One month after Carmelo Anthony's high-powered team of advisers first began pressuring the Denver Nuggets to trade him, the superstar scorer has not wavered in his desire to be dealt, multiple sources told CBSSports.com.

    "There's no sign of reconsideration on Carmelo's part, despite what [Denver] has publicly said," said one of the people involved in the process.

    The two sides remain locked in a stalemate over Anthony's future while a three-year, $65 million extension offer sits untouched in front of him. While Nuggets officials – including influential adviser Bret Bearup and executive Josh Kroenke – continue to rebuff trade inquiries while hoping to repair the franchise's relationship with Anthony, privately the team is beginning to examine which teams would have the most attractive combination of young players, draft picks and expiring contracts to complete a deal. And the team currently viewed by people close to the situation as having the most realistic chance of putting together a blockbuster, perhaps multi-team deal for Anthony is the New Jersey Nets.

    “They’re working the hardest to get a deal done,” one of the sources said.

    With No. 3 overall pick Derrick Favors, multiple extra draft picks, and Devin Harris, whose $8.98 million contract could be parlayed into a serviceable replacement for Anthony in a three-team trade, New Jersey has the makings of a package that would appeal to Nuggets officials, one of the people with knowledge of Denver’s strategy said. The key, according to the person, would be involving a third team to convert Harris into something the Nuggets would view as “decent replacement value” for Anthony.

    That is where another team equipped with attractive assets could enter the picture, multiple sources said: the Philadelphia 76ers. New team president Rod Thorn and GM Ed Stefanski – who formerly worked together in New Jersey – could be central to constructing a deal that would compel the Nuggets to move Anthony rather than endure a season-long distraction that ends with Anthony leaving as a free agent after the season. The key pieces of the Philadelphia equation would be the expiring contracts of Jason Kapono ($6.64 million) and Willie Green ($3.98 million), a young talent such as Thaddeus Young, and Andre Iguodala, who is coming off a solid contribution to Team USA’s gold-medal performance at the FIBA World Championships. Some executives believe the Sixers would at least discuss including No. 2 overall pick Evan Turner if it meant getting Anthony, but that would defeat the purpose of going over the luxury tax to get Anthony in the first place."

    dude I was gonna post something about this. The sixers are annoying. They have no plan at all whatsoever. They don't know whether they want to try to rebuild or sign vets to compete now. They are going nowhere fast.

    Also, I heard your boy evan turner was one of the biggest disappointments in the summer league.

    This team is gonna suck as usual

    I was hoping that he would show something that justified that pick. He wasn't playing against the best comp. I think favors is gonna be a beast. Thorn drafted him and there have been rumors that he wants to trade for him.

    how can you justify a draft pick based on glorified practices in june?

    why in the world would the nets trade the #3 pick for anthing on the sixers roster?

    not sure i follow.

    Multiple sources are still telling CBSSports.com's Ken Berger that Carmelo Anthony has not and will not change he mind about wanting out of Denver.

    "There's no sign of reconsideration on Carmelo's part, despite what [Denver] has publicly said," one of the sources said.

    The Nets, at this time, may have the assets to get Anthony, but they may not have enough for Denver, so a third team would need to be included. Berger suggests that team could be Philadelphia.

    Berger writes: "A package sending Anthony to the Nets, Derrick Favors to Philadelphia and Andre Iguodala to Denver is one way all of these moving parts could come together.

    that's the exact same article i posted earlier.

    lots of diff ways that trade can go if it goes down at all. if we get rid of iguodala and keep turner and add favors that would be nuts.......even if turner didn't look good summer league. :lol:

    haha, I didn't really read the stuff you posted. just skimmed it real quick. I got that crap from espn, so I figured it was something different. I'm an idiot.

    all just rumors...I'm sure the sixers will fuck it up somehow. just like the dalembert trade
  • The JugglerThe Juggler Behind that bush over there.Posts: 34,289
    the dalembert was addition by subtraction. i cannot fault them for that one at all, even if they could have gotten more at mid season. collins wanted him gone. he didn't want his lazy habits infecting this young team anymore.

    it'll be an even better trade if they flip one of the pieces they got into that rumored trade we talked about ealier too.

    nice trade today. getting rid of the worst guard in the NBA is always a good thing. hopefully this rookie they got can rebound.

    I liked Smith though, but he couldn't stay on the court. Plus, they traded for a guy like him anyway.

    And, yes, THANK GOD Green is gone.

    one of my buddies is known for making bold statements that always come back to bite him in the ass. about 5 years ago he once, in an overtly adamant manner, uttered the phrase "willie green is a scoring machine."

    yeah, he didn't get any shit for that what so ever :lol:
