With all the talk about a possible trade for Kirk Hinrich, the Lakers need to stand firm with their original offer: Sasha Vujacic and Adam Morrison. I know the Bulls want to make a run at Dwyane Wade and would rather have Jordan Farmar than The Oven, but if I’m the Lakers it’s take-it-or-leave-it….
Hinrich has two years and $17M remaining on his contract after this season and The Oven (Sasha) has $5.5M coming next season….
Hinrich was an All-Star just a few years ago and one of the best defensive PG’s in the NBA. Sure his numbers are down, but that’s because of the emergence of Derrick Rose. Because of this, Hinrich’s minutes are down and the Bulls are looking to move his contract….
How about this for a counter offer? Derek Fisher and Morrison for Hinrich….
Fisher and Morrison have expiring contracts, which the Bulls are looking for, and the Lakers keep Farmar….
I like the way Jordan has been playing lately and some in the Lakers organization believe Farmar is a better player than Hinrich. I don’t agree, but would hate to see Farmar go unless the team is getting a real star in return….
So here is my final offer to the Bulls: Either Vujacic and Morrison for Hinrich or Fisher and Morrison; take your pick….
If they say no, remind them they can’t make a run at Wade unless they clear out Hinrich’s contract. Then wait for them to accept….
I know Fisher is a popular player and has made some huge shots, but he’s been awful this season and become a liability. How does a Hinrich/Farmar/Shannon Brown sound compared to what we have now?….
Goodbye D-Fish or goodbye Sasha….
What an excellent match last night between Andy Murray and Maran Cilic in the Australian Open semi-finals. The 6’6″ Cilic easily won the first set, but Murray hung in there, wore Cilic down and won in four exciting, athletic sets….
I know Roger Federer is playing great and will probably defeat Jo Wilfried Tsonga in his semi-final match; setting up a Federer-Murray final….
I like Murray in this match and believe the 22-year-old Scotsman will pull off a dramatic upset….
Of all the sleazy, dishonest, reprehensible politicians I’ve ever seen, John Edwards has to rank #1 on the list….
After cheating on his cancer-stricken wife and then threatening an aide into taking the blame for his pregnant mistress, I thought we’d heard the last of this weasel. But now something new has surfaced; a sex tape….
Evidently, Edwards and his mistress made a sex tape and the most disturbing thing is the mistress is pregnant!….
So not only does he cheat on his dying wife, he also makes a sex video with his pregnant mistress? He has to be the lowest form or life on earth….
According to a new book on the whole sordid affair, Edwards tried to get the mistress to abort and then ordered an aide to step forward and claim he was having the affair and knocked up the skank….
Wow, what a vile creature….
And to think this guy came within a couple of votes of being a heartbeat away from the Presidency. Had the Florida vote gone the other way, it would have been President Al Gore and Vice President John Edwards….
Just the thought of the mentally deranged Gore and the immoral Edwards in the White House is chilling….
From the first time I saw Edwards I knew he was a corrupt snake, so it’s laughable it took this affair and cover up for people to realize what a low life he is….
He made his money being a slip-and-fall lawyer, making up stories to bilk corporations and the medical industry out of millions of dollars. He shut down one hospital by convincing a stupid jury that babies born with cerebal palsy were the result of doctor malpractice, not a birth defect….
Then, it was learned that this “champion of the poor,” who was loudly denouncing Republican tax cuts and demanding the rich “pay their fair share” did everything in his power to hide his own money….
Despite tens of millions of earnings one year, he paid only $500,000K in income tax; the result of hiring the best lawyers in the world to hide, shift and move his money….
Reminds me of Ted Kennedy, who hid his money in the Fiji Islands while screaming about corporate greed and the rich not paying enough taxes….
I hope Johnny-Boy is proud of himself and thinks about his wife undergoing chemotherapy while he’s skirt-chasing….
