Two questions and one surprise...

Questions first:

1) Can CWebb and AI survive together?!!! Will Philly benefit? Who will play sidekick to who?

2) Is this the end of Kings? They did well, despite CWebb being absent due to injury last season... Its Peja's turn to prove...

Sidekick questions...

1) Is the West really a power house anymore? Sure there are Spurs.. but... :think: :think:
2) Is Mo and Smith addition gonna help Miami reach the next level? Those crushing last minute failures..? Can the close it up?

SURPRISE

Nearly everyone reported that Devean George, Lamar Odom, and even Vlade Divac is going to be traded, and Lakers are going to acquire Carlos Boozer.. Supposed to be one solid deal, but one day it was a huge news, and then it fizzled out as quickly as it started - quite unlike our Santa Ana winds.. :ahha:

What happened?? What heck are the Lakers upto? Right now, they can barely make it to play offs, but then.. kings are dead, so are the Wolves.. who knows whats going to happen in the west..

SURPRISE SURPRISE.. Wolves didn't do anything either.. ? Stupid or do they have some gameplan?? From the looks of it, I would say STUPID>>> :ahha:

Can't wait to see the silly kings now.. :P :P I wish philly does pull up.. :b: Would be nice to have Heat, Philly and Pistons as surefire playoff contenders..
