It hasn’t been easy for me to watch and keep track of all these offseason moves in the NBA because it seems that my Mavericks are imploding. The crazy part about it is that there’s still a lot to be figured out; still a lot players that are going to ink a deal. Players all around the league are signing deals with new teams to achieve different goals. The two biggest free agents this offseason (Deron Williams and Dwight Howard) are in completely situations after a hectic first week. Williams decided to stay with Nets and sign a max-deal worth a little over $100 million. Yes, as a Mavs fan I’m disappointed that he didn’t come home but at the same time I try to be objective and look at the situation from his point of view. Would you turn down $25 million? Dwight Howard on the other hand just keeps hurting his reputation and the Orlando Magic franchise. Will someone work out a deal for Howard so all this can just end?
Big splash yesterday, veteran point guard Steve Nash has decided to join the Los Angeles Lakers. I was a bit surprised by this decision but now it’s time to figure out how this team will work out. What does our resident Laker fan Bryan think about this move? Other key moves around the league: Joe Johnson to the Nets; Kevin Garnett re-signs with the Celtics; Jason Terry verbal agreement with Celtics (this one stung); players currently being recruited around the league include Jeremy Lin, Ray Allen, Eric Gordon, Brandon Roy, Roy Hibbert, and Michael Beasley. There’s still a lot to decide in the NBA so stay tuned.
