Our pal, AJ Niss, a veteran of the Fancast, has a few thoughts to share on David Stern's rejection of the Chris Paul trade. Thanks for the submission, AJ. Remember, South Standers, we want to hear from YOU!
Our favorite NBA follow on Twitter is the always-hilarious @Mrs__NBA. She's not only deeply knowledgeable about the league past AND present but she sees things with a fan's eye - which we always appreciate. She's worthy of a follow not only for her basketball mind but for her unique insights on male / female relationships. Toss her a follow - or an Afflalo, if you prefer.
@Mrs__NBA was kind enough to allow us to repost this entry from her blog, Measuring NBA Kicks Since 1946 over at Blogspot.
Carmelo's gone. He took Chauncey with him. JR and Kenyon weren't willing to wait. They're in China. Wilson Chandler bailed, too. As they head toward their first game (on the day after Christmas), your Denver Nuggets are selling from an empty shelf. Almost.
We would never wish J.R. Smith any ill will. He looks like a straight genius for escaping the NBA now. He suffered a nasty injury today, though, playing ball in China.
Negotiations between the NBA Players Association and league owners stalled yet again on Friday afternoon. Billy Hunter and the overpaid hooligans he represents can't accept the idea that the league will not survive without some changes to their collective bargaining agreement. The players will eventually concede this. We just hope they don't see the light until after the 2011 season is cancelled. We need a break.
You can't keep a good man down. George Karl is proof. So is resident Sports Columnist, John Reidy who piped up about coack Karl in this week's Jock Itch for the AV Club Denver / Boulder
I believe that it's time for Chris Andersen to pull an Ochocinco and legally change his name to Birdman.
How awesome would that be? His uniform would actually say "Birdman" on the back. I'm guessing he can download the forms on the internet.

I never really liked sports until I had a religious conversion when the Broncos lost to the 49ers in that one Super Bowl. Now I'm obsessed with all aspects of the Denver pro sports world. Oh yeah, I hate college football. It's crap. Talk to me on twitter @johnreidydenver
