There’a a dandy doubleheader in the NBA tonight and a $1,000 Freeroll for our readers. Click that link to enter; the top 225 finishers will win cash and first place is worth $100. It’s money for nothing!
Why is the trade deadline different from all other nights of the year? It’s not. The West just got tougher. In the East, where there’s no life-or-death importance attached to getting better, the top teams sat this one out while the bad teams—your Knicks and 76ers—dumped, shut down or otherwise disposed of their best players in order to tank more definitively.
The NBA’s trade deadline is now under 48 hours away at 3 p.m. Eastern time Thursday, and it’s the Phoenix Suns who seem to be driving the market. The Suns are expected to meet Tuesday with Bill Duffy, the agent for Goran Dragic. The assumption, of course, is that the Suns would like an indication from their point guard on his offseason plans.

Apparently, Enes Kanter of the Utah Jazz wasn’t paying attention because he had some interesting things to say about the Warriors on Friday prior to their final meeting of the season, from CSN Bay Area (keep in mind that the Jazz had lost the previous two games by an average of 12 points and
A fire sale could be poised to begin in Brooklyn, with former All-Stars Deron Williams, Joe Johnson and Brook Lopez all available in trade discussions, according to multiple media reports on Tuesday.
Monday was a strange night in the NBA. The lowly Nuggets, blown out the day before, shocked the previously red-hot Cavs in Cleveland. Pau Gasol (calf) and Derrick Rose (hamstring) didn’t play, but the Bulls beat the Clippers anyway, thanks to Taj Gibson and Jimmy Butler.
The holiday season is gaining on us quickly. The weather is starting to get cooler, Christmas lights and decorations flood retail stores, and Enes Kanter makes even the biggest of gingerbread houses look tiny. The Utah Jazz forward/center spent some time at, uh, some place that has a giant gingerbread house.
