Haha yeah, I was thinking the same thing.....hopefully those guys won't play and the Raptors would have it easier.

I think the 6ers might be the Pistons hardest potential playoff matchplay. Detroit can't rebound against dalembert and brand, and now the guards are too big for us.

that makes no sense. He would be their best reserve big by a long shot.

This is a possible snag in the deal.

McDyess says he may retire now…

OR the Nuggets will have to waive Dyess…

sounds like they're going to waive him. which sucks but hey the nugs definitely improved if you ask me,

it sounds to me like he wanted to play in Detroit or not play at all. Which would force the nugs to waive him.

I'm sure Stern doesn't look kindly on trading and waiving players just to satisfy trade-rule demands. Seemed like he slowed down Diop from getting waived, even though he still returned to Dallas.

Is AI still popular enough to start in the East?

Will coaches punish AI for his bad rep and keep him out of the game?

I think he's gonna start along with Wade in the backcourt. Maybe Arenas can take his starting place though.

Wait, don't they have rules about waiving a guy so he can sign with his old team. Dice better not open his mouth like Stackhouse did last year. Or else he's gonna have to as he says, retire, or go get waived (Damnit, why can't we say he was fired?) and sign with another team.

Have you heard that anywhere else or just relying on posters here? I'm just popping in from class and see this trade. If Dyess goes to Denver, the Nuggets team this year will be much better than the team they had at the end of last year. I understand not winning to move but this can be a really good team.

Billups | JR | Melo | Kenyon or Dyess |Nene will win 50+ games. Don't ruin this Dyess.

Oh?....and the top teams in the East are?....got a list?

Note: please don't include wanna.be teams.....I like a little proof (has a little more substance)

Why wouldn't he want to play in Denver anyway? He's been on the team twice before, he signed a contract with them 8-9 years ago even though he had offers from Phoenix and Houston.

Stephen A. Smith said they will waive him.

the nba.com page says this.

There is one sticking point to the deal, though. McDyess does not want to go to Denver, and a source close to him says "he will not put on a Nuggets uniform" and may opt to retire.

Because of McDyess's objection, the Nuggets may waive the mandatory physical each player in a trade must take in order for the league to approve any deal. McDyess may be seeking a buyout of the remainder of his contract (two years, $13.6 million).

The deal has not been finalized but the teams are holding a conference call with the league. http://www.nba.com/2008/news/11/03/n....ap/index.html
thatd be awesome if all we lsot was billups for ai. ill take that.
