I hope we keep what we have. Watching them since the break has been fun. I look at everyone that comes in the game and I don't see any weakness.

Agreed.

To get to .500, we just have to win 2 games for every loss -- that doesn't seem so far fetched to me, with our current roster and everybody healthy.

Forty minutes....I hope at least they're talking to teams. Although I have heard some disturbing reports that we were in serious talks with Portland concerning Wallace, there's no one on that team I'd want to swap for Wallace.

ESPN.com:
"Two days ago, it looked like the Blazers, armed with Raef LaFrentz's expiring contract, were going to make some noise at the trade deadline. However, as of Wednesday afternoon, it is still unclear what, if anything, the Blazers are going to do.
"Sources say the Bobcats turned down a Blazers offer for Gerald Wallace Wednesday afternoon."

Yeah, I can't believe they'd try to make a deal for Wallace, unless it was a 3 for 1 with either Fernandez or Rodriguez, Outlaw and LaFrentz.

Looks like we're in the clear with the current roster for the rest of the season.

Yep. I'm watching the deadling report on ESPN2. A lot of west coast teams loading up and the Knicks getting really mediocre which will help us in the playoff run. Nets and Bucks stayed pat which also helps us because I don't think they can keep their positions ahead of us. The Bucks and Sixers both lost their best players (Redd and Brand respectively) for the season which helps us. My biggest concern is all the moves Chicago made, it'll will either kill their season or bump them up a couple of spots, they're currently 9th.

Yes, deadline passed with no loss of Felts or Crash. (Or May or Nazr....). Nor, actually. To quote an old Alka Seltzer commercial:
"Pop pop fizz fizz. Oh what a relief it is!"

It wasn't much of a trade deadline this year. I'm happy we stayed put.

If you look at the entire year, had all 3 trades happened today, we'd be pretty excited. Instead, it was spread out.

Richardson/Dudley to Phoenix for Bell/Diaw/Singletery
Carroll/Hollins to Dallas for Diop
Morrison/Brown to Los Angeles for Radmanovic

Not to mention signing Howard.

So overall I'd say that's pretty good.

I read that 3 days ago JRich was arrested for going 90mph in a 35mph speed zone and that his small toddler son was not restrained in a safety seat or anything. I don't remember if booze was involved here as it was in his last brush with the law a month or so ago. And I wonder--would all this bad stuff have happened if JRich had still been a Bobcat.........

I would say this is our best year trade wise. I am really happy.

You can say the same to Jamaal Tinsley if he's traded to Charlotte.
It would be nice if Charlotte could pick up a veteran guard, but I guess LB's going to play Felton at SG for sometime (when Bell's at bench resting). With Felton's shooting %, oww it hurts.....

Maybe we'll sign Aaron McKie...or did Martin take up our last roster spot?
