One of the best players in the league? Unquestionably. But the most valuable player last year? Chicago's success without Derrick Rose this season raises questions.
His new teammates on the Knicks aren't the only ones being rejuvenated by Amare Stoudemire this season. Just look at the big numbers being produced by the players he guards!
Bring Chris Bosh off the bench. Start Udonis Haslem. Phrase it however you like, just as long as the team's grittiest rebounder and toughest post defender is on the court at tipoff.
"It's heartbreaking anytime you think of a child suffering to the point of suicide ... it's just so heartbreaking," said Steve Nash. And he's not the only athlete reaching out to youth in distress.
He's a Hall of Famer. But he's also old and obstructive, and he's burned a lot of his NBA bridges. Shaq's free agency isn't as appealing as his ego makes him think it is.
NBA GMs who miss out on LeBron James and Dwyane Wade should not panic and offer max deals to Amare Stoudemire, Joe Johnson or Chris Bosh.
LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and other elite NBA free agents could take less money so their teams could sign better complementary players. Will they?
Free agency split Dirk Nowitzki and Steve Nash too soon. I can't help but wonder whether free agency could bring them back together.
It's one thing to have talent. It's something else to have talent on the right team. Just ask Channing Frye.
