They can sign someone else to replace him though so should be alright. They'll likely get a veteran

Marc Gasol was named the NBA best defensive player of the year but did not make the 1st all defensive team. What the?

I think it was the same thing last year with Tyson Chandler.

Nuggets and Karl part ways.

Did it happen ever before that a team fired a coach who just won COY award?

Disgraceful in fact. Karl gets COY finally and they sack him? Odd to say the least.

Nate McMillan or Avery Johnson would be a good choice for the Nugs, as they have had success teaching offense and defense.

Nah, Nuggets made the right call on Karl. Karl is player coach, but other than that is pretty awful. The Dusty Baker of the NBA.

Bad move getting rid of the COY and your team just won the most it ever has. All the best to them.

The Pacers just traded for Scola from the Suns. One team building for the title while the other is tanking for the 2014 draft.

I almost feel inclined to call Indiana the best team in the East. Depending on what happens with Granger, whether he is traded or not, they look like they could beat Miami. If I was Bird, I'd look to trade Granger for a great PG, like Rondo, who is gettable right now. With a great PG the Pacers would be complete.

Phoenix is definately rebuilding and to be honest, I wouldn't mind getting Gortat, even if he is an expirer. That'd be a move for the future and resigning him now as a backup, that'd come rather cheap, at least less than he is worth, which to me is about 10 million. Reckon he'd resign if he was here for 6 million a year for two eyars, giving time to see how the soon to be aging Bogut and Lee are performing. If Phoenix wants to tank, Gortat has to go.

I am beating the drum loudly this time. Heat aren't making it back to the finals. Sure, I think they are the best team in the East again, but I don't think they get back.

I think the Suns will hang onto Gortat. Centre is the hardest position to fill from the draft.

I agree with you about the Pacers. An elite PG would make them tough to beat. If they lost Granger for Rondo though, I'm not sure where they'd shots from with Rondo and Stephenson as their starting guards. I'd still like to see Granger and George starting together. Hill did a reasonable job last season.
