All things Basketball: From NBA, to D-League to street games at the park all over the globe,
Sorry i have not been on in a very long time, i have forgotten all about tumblr. i will start posting more and more.
My Playoff Predictions are that it will be Knicks vs heat in the Eastern Conference Finals and the Thunder vs Spurs in the Western Conference finals.
if Dwyane Wade’s knee does not recover, it will be hard for someone to replace what he bring to the Heat.
“This is what I told them,” he says. “If someone came to you right now and told you, ‘If you don’t win tonight you won’t see your family again,’ how would you play? Approach this game like your family is in danger. How bad do you want to see your family again?”
..damn. thats serious. lol.

— LeBron James (Before Game 5 of Finals)
The 38-year-old veteran is an unrestricted free agent, and with his impending free agency set to begin July 11, there will be a number of teams coveting his services.
Will he join a contender in an attempt to win his first ring? How about an up-and-coming roster as a mentor?
Or will he choose to stay put in Phoenix and rebuild the roster he’s been with the past eight seasons?
Only time will tell, so stay tuned as we keep you updated with the latest rumors regarding Nash and his big decision this summer.
Suns Preparing to Lose Steve Nash?
Marshall is a pure distributor point guard who needs to improve his shot and defense. Early “politically correct” commentary suggests that Marshall was drafted to learn from Nash.
However, there is no way he was drafted to be a backup, not when the Suns had so many other needs to address with this pick.
Steve Nash could be heading home to Canada, even if it’s not anymore of a winning situation than the one he leaves behind with the Phoenix suns.
HoopsWorld’s Steve Kyler mentions that Nash has supposedly left the door open to playing with the Toronto Raptors. In fact, it’s strong enough that the Raps are apparently balking at an offer from theHouston Rockets that would send Kyle Lowry north in exchange for Toronto’s No. 8 pick.
It would be strange for Nash to forgo playing with a contender on what’s surely his last NBA deal. However, playing professionally in front of his national crowd might be a huge personal draw.
According to ESPN’s Jared Zwerling, Nash would “definitely consider” joining the New York Knicks next season.
Nash and Amar’e Stoudemire would create one heck of a two-man game, as we saw for years when they were together in Phoenix.
Nash could also come in and be a teacher to Jeremy Lin, who received comparisons to the 17-year veteran last season.
For salary cap purposes, bringing Nash to New York could be difficult. However, if they can make it happen, it would be well worth the money spent.
Despite the money concerns, Steve Nash also recently mentioned to Yahoo’s Marc J. Spears that the Knicks are ahead of the Brooklyn Nets as a potential destination. The Nets have most of their salary cap to spend in free agency this year, but appear to be too big a rebuilding project for Nash to get involved in.
Could Steve Nash be taking his talents to South Beach next season?
LeBron James got the recruiting process started for Nash last offseason:
There are other teams out there that could offer more money, but the Heat have a star-studded crew that is ready to show their championship trophy to anybody willing to join for less.
