Rose to Knicks:
http://www.espn.com.au/nba/story/_/id/16427840/new-york-knicks-acquire-derrick-rose-chicago-bulls



This has me excited. Can the Knicks become a force again? I'm hoping this change of scenery and the "big stage" can bring D Rose back to his best.

I like Schroeder at point for the hawks.. he's got serious potential as a season-long starter. Sucks about Teague's knee apparently..

also sucks for Rose.. to the graveyard with Melo :/ I picture Rose ending up like Marburry did when he went to the knicks.. Marburry was a beast in PHX, then fizzled hard in NY.. just hope he stays healthy for a while.. man was he fun to watch early on in his career.

i'm hoping King Riley can lure Durant over to MIA....... :) It would be smart for Durant to get out of the West, he'd be a legit finals contender every year in the east (most likely). He's already on a beast team with OKC, but, the West is stacked.. come to the East durant, come to .. South Beach.

durant should make like lebron and come home to the wizards.  :highfive: :highfive: :highfive: :highfive:

actually, it kills me to say this but he should go to the celtics.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
wednesday: fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10

- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure

^^ talks of Phil trying to get Durant to NY Knicks.... The Rose trade would make even more sense if this is the case. I'm a heat fan so, i'd hate to see the knicks start owning the heat.. but, that'd still be an interesting "Big 3" (melo, rose, durant). Maybe Durant is the type of player turn the NY graveyard into a field of flowers.

Just looked up his age and can't believe Durant is so young. Feels like he's been around much longer. Was going to say surely he'd only move to someone with immediate chances but he still has a few years to build. I would love to see him in the East too as I think GSW are going to dominate the West in years to come.

Also, why has NY become a graveyard? I haven't paid them much attention the last few years.

well, just the fact that from 2001-2002 to 2015-2016 season, they've made the playoffs four times. but, from 1988-1989 - 2000-2001 season, they made the playoffs every year. That's a major "fall from grace". I wish they sucked this bad when during the 1990's when the heat had a solid squad :) they were a major thorn in the Heat's side during those years.. made for some amazing playoff series/games though..

I just think their org makes bad moves.. Bad coaching moves. Bad player signings. Melo, Marburry, Staudomire..  not a huge fan of those guys. If they can convince someone like Durant to come over though....... that's huge. Hope they do it tbh (unless the Heat can get Durant).

nice!

Ingram to the Lakers... they should be happy.

also, i'd be really happy if I was the bucks.. landing Maker. He's got some serious skills.

so impressed with Thon Maker.. i've been watching this dude on youtube, ballislife etc.. he could be a real gem of a player. Lots of people probably cast doubt on him because of his build.. but he reminds me of a KG with better handles/better jumper. That's LEGIT.. just needs to develop now in the NBA.

Agree 100%. Have seen a few interviews with him and he seems pretty switched on too. Has come from war torn Sudan so no doubt understands the privilege of his position. If he can add some more size and strength he will be an absolute beast.

He still has a max vert of 36.5". That's huge at his height.

36.5" at his height is absolutely ridiculous. so sick.

I'm just hoping Rose doesn't go there to die a horrible death too.

Yep. A 9'3" reach and a 36.5" vert. Just imagine the possibilities  :ibjumping: :wowthatwasnutswtf:
