Sources told ESPN.com that the Mavericks, who immediately made reacquiring Chandler one of their priorities after their first-round playoff exit against San Antonio, soon will complete a trade with the Knicks that they will clinch by agreeing to take back the contract of New York’s out-of-favor guard, Raymond Felton, as well.
The trade is expected to cost Dallas two starters — point guard Jose Calderon and center Samuel Dalembert — along with prized young point guard Shane Larkin, reserve guard Wayne Ellington and future second-round draft compensation.
Let’s get the championship squad back together. Get Jason Kidd and Jason Terry out of Brooklyn. Get Peja out of retirement. Get DeShawn Stevenson out of jail. Repeat city. Samuel Dalembert, I can honestly say you are the only person I’ve ever seen who is 7 feet tall and not be able to make a layup. That should be scientifically impossible. And Raymond, leave the guns at home. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
If Amar’e Stoudemire is Trying to Get Me To Like Him By Walking Around With a Fashionable Cane I Need Someone to Let Him Know It’s Working
Now that is a nice cane. Elegant, fancy, I don’t even know what else to say. I’m officially jealous of Amar’e Stoudemire. A cane is such an underrated fashion accesory, and I really hope he didn’t just have knee surgery or something because that would ruin it. People who use a cane because they’re handicapped arent cool because they actually need it to be mobile; people who use a cane as a fashion accesory, on the other hand, are very, very cool. Maybe cool isn’t the word I’m looking for, but I love the cane statement. It’s the ultimate wildcard accesory. If I saw a person at a party with a cane and they weren’t handicapped I would want to get to know that person. They probably have some crazy stories about repelling down moutains or being an average professional basketball player. From here on out, I’m team Amar’e. Might even change my name to Rya’n.

A lot of people are laughing this off as a prank. Ask anyone whose ever played basketball at any level if they thought this was funny. 1 million out of 1 million people will tell you it’s not. Ever rolled, sprained or broke your ankle? Not much humor about that. Running up and down the court in the NBA with your shoelaces untied is probably the easiest way to sprain your ankle. I don’t think you should fine or suspend Smith, though. He should be banned from the league FOR LIFE. Only reasonable thing I can think of. He should thank his lucky stars that he didn’t do that to Dirk. I’d be on the first flight to New York to kick his tattooed ass.
P.S. In retrospect, I shouldn’t be surprised someone with such a wholesome look did this..
