Ron Glover’s NBA Q & A

Carmelo Anthony

This was definitely a week to remember in the NBA; the trade deadline has shifted the balance of power squarely back to the Eastern Conference. A boycott in Motown? And an old rivalry is renewed.

What did we learn about the New York Knicks and the Miami Heat last night?

What does Friday’s alleged boycott by several Detroit Pistons say about today’s NBA?

New Jersey Nets point guard Deron Williams drives at Houston Rockets forward Chuck Hayes during the Nets' 123-108 loss on Saturday night.

Will Mikhail Prokhorov’s grand scheme to break the Knicks backfire?

Rip Hamilton deserves better from the Detroit Pistons, doesn’t he?

Dwight Howard - you are on the clock…

    Prokorov can’t break the Knicks because he can’t break MSG — the building or the network (and that’s to say nothing of Dolan and Cablevision). He’d have better luck fighting Chechens with lipstick, bubble gum, and pumps while wearing a Speedo. Ain’t happnin’. The Knicks have sucked for other reasons, but you best believe that the flow of loot in and around that building has been in hyper-drive since 1934. Ain’t no new Russians messin’ with that.

    @ Ron:

    That picture of D. Howard is perfect. What did you do, Google “Howard, nuts, and Kobe”?? Or was it Deeeeez Nutz??

    @Temple the reverse angle of that shot looks like Kobe is punching Howard in the jewelz.

    I’m sure Chauncey wanted to do that after last night’s knee to the thigh! Ouch!

    Read in Freep.com that Rip could’ve got out by the trade deadline and then been bought out, but he inexplicably nixed the deal. Heard the Bulls and another team that my liquor haze prevents me from presently recalling, lol, expressed interest in signing him. One has to wonder then, if true, just what he’s thinking about because it’s common knowledge that he completely and utterly disrespected and humiliated the coach in front of the entire team in practice. T make matters worse, he lead a chorus of teammates in jeers and laughter as the coach was thrown out of a game recently. I think that Rip and the player’s attitudes definitely jeopardize Joe Dumar’s job despite his seemingly lame-duck status, as the team is currently on the selling block. You’re question regarding Rip, then, is most appropriate. Who truly knows at this point. Seems to me that Rip may be cutting off his nose to spite his face.

    I read some of the Detroit Press to get a better feel for the situation. It looks like Rip has been on Kuester for sometime now but why has Hamilton sat for close to a month with no clear explanation – he isn’t too hurt to play. To me to offer a player that helped bring your franchise back to relevancy and a title to boot to the Cavaliers is a slap to the face and I would’ve balked at it.

    Now as far as not accepting the buyout – one theory has Hamilton staying for the duration of his deal just to spite the Pistons and hurt them cap-wise for not moving him.

    I guess people will pass some blame on Hamilton here but Joe Dumas tore a great team apart – it started when he fired Rick Carlisle and minus the title the following season, it’s been downhill ever since.

    Yes, read anything Detroit NBA basketball through the original TSF mind of Vincent Goodwill. He does the best work for the Detroit News.

    Conversely, stay away from Mitch Albom…

    …who writes in every other article “what kind of message does that send!” about some punishment he deemed to lenient on (fill in the black athlete)…
