    Interesting.  I completely agree with Amare heading that list up.  Stoudemire is used to being A PIECE, as opposed to THE PIECE.  Being the focal point of opposing teams and their defensive schemes is not going to make for a successful season for the "Man-child".  He was what he was in Phoenix, in large part, because of their system and especially because of Nash and their pick-and-rolls.  Being THE PIECE and being away from the "Fountain of Youth" that the Phoenix organization seemingly has possession of, will SIGNIFICANTLY increase his chances of an injury (or re-injury).  I foresee rumors of NY's own "Big 3" being rekindled should public opinion begin to sway..that is, until Mello extends in Denver.

    I disagree with Boozer and Bosh though.  Boozer is in Chicago to do only what Boozer does best, nothing more and nothing less.  The Bulls desperately needed that type of presence and now they have it.  They will be very formidable in the East with all of their offseason improvements.  Bosh was said to be the third option in the new-look Miami offense in that article, and for that reason, he made the list.  With basketball being and inside-out game offensively, and neither Wade or LeBinky having the consistent back-to-the-basket, high percentage game that Bosh does, how and why would he be a THIRD option?  Should be the first.  Always look inside first.  He is also the best shooter of the three as well.  I just don't see the reasoning for Bosh being on that list.  I would have put James on that list before Bosh, if for no other reason, the inflated expectation level.

    Interesting that Outlaw made it as well, but unfortunately, equally understandable when looking at his contract.
    I am a fan of players that play with PASSION and PRIDE

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
