NBA Archives: January Through February 2008

Friday Pro Roundball: Utah Jazz vs. New Orleans Hornets – 2/29

Released: The Los Angeles Clippers have released G Sam Cassell. It’s said that if he clears waivers, that he will sign with the Boston Celtics. – 2/28

Thursday Pro Selection: Dallas Mavericks vs. San Antonio Spurs – 2/28

Free Agent Signing: The Boston Celtics have signed free agent power forward P.J. Brown. While Brown won’t get any major minutes, this is a great pickup as Brown is an excellent role player that will be a tremendous asset to the Celts should they call on his services. – 2/27

Wednesday Pro Plays: Phoenix Suns vs. New Orleans Hornets – 2/27

Tuesday NBA Selection: Portland Trailblazers vs. Los Angeles Lakers – 2/26

Injury News: Hawks rookie guard Acie Law III may be out for the rest of the season after he suffered what appeared to be a broken wrist. – 2/20

NBA Trade: Rumors are swirling out of Houston that the Rockets have traded Bonzi Wells and Mike James to the New Orleans Hornets for Bobby Jackson. Why the Hornets would want to pick up a locker room cancer like Wells is anybody’s guess. The Rockets must be giggling under their breath as adding Bobby Jackson gives them a solid veteran backup who can play the point and provide a spark off the bench. There are possibly other players/draft picks/cash involved in this deal. This is only a preliminary report. – 2/20

Wednesday Hoops Picks: Dallas Mavericks vs. New Orleans Hornters – 2/20

Tuesday NBA Prediction: Boston Celtics vs. Denver Nuggets – 2/19

Monday NBA Pick: Dallas Mavericks vs. Orlando Magic – 2/4

On the Mend: Washington ball hog Gilbert Arenas has announced that he plans on returning on March 2nd. – 2/1

Player Movement: The Wizards and Grizzlies swapped stiffs as Washington sends what might be the worst player in the NBA (J. Collins) to the Grizz for perennial bust Stromile Swift. If somebody would give Swift minutes and IF he could stay healthy, he could easily be an 18 points, 9 boards and 2 blocks per game type of player but for some reason he has never put it together. In other news, Charlotte signed under-rated point guard Earl Boykins to a contract and there’s rumors swirling that the San Antonio Spurs are going to sign the recently waived Damon Bluntamire. – 2/1

Big Trade: The Los Angeles Lakers have traded for 7’0″ C/F Pau Gasol. He came fairly cheap too as the Lakers only had to pony up Jarvaris Crittenton, Aaron McKie who the team had just signed, Kwame Brown who the jury is still out on, the rights to Pau’s brother Marc Gasol and draft rights to Marc Gasol and the Lakers first round draft picks in 2008 and 2010 which should be middle of the road picks. – 2/1

C-Webb Signs: The Golden State Warriors have signed C-F Chris
to a contract for the rest of the season. – 1/29

2007 Playoff Teams Struggling in 2008 – 1/25

Mistake? Rumors have it that the Golden State Warriors are talking to Chris Webber. We’re surprised at this potential move seeing as though the Warriors have pretty decent team chemistry that C-Web seemingly wouldn’t fit into. – 1/25
