NBA Wrap 11-1-10

Al Horford – The Atlanta Hawks re-up the young PF with a 5 year $60M deal.  After paying Joe Johnson his $119M, this is probably a great deal.  He’s getting Joakim Noah money and that’s not bad for a guy that is a stud for the Hawks.  Great move!!!

Miami Heat – Rumored to be looking for a point guard that can hit a jumper and possibly signing oft-injured, oft-bloated Eddy Curry once the Knicks waive him after the trade deadline.  On looking for a point guard, the Heat may need to give Mario Chalmers a chance to be that guy.  Arroyo has had ups and downs playing point, but if things aren’t going the right way, the Heat can be movers at the trade deadline.  On signing Eddy Curry, unless he’s battling Joey Chestnut or Kobayashi in an eating contest, this move would be worthless. 

LeBron James – Saying that if he could do it all over again he’d do some things differently with ‘The Decision’.  It took this long to come to this conclusion?  I mean c’mon man, yes they are ‘your friends’ but sometimes they are too close to you to give you the feedback that you need.  He is 25 and yes, he’s not going to do everything right, but LBJ, call me next time before you make a decision like that.  I’ll definitely give you some good advice (scrap the show, write a check to the B&G Club, and announce you’re taking your talents to South Beach AFTER you call the Cavs and let them know you’re out). 

The Celtics – Delonte West and Von Wafer fought in the Celtics locker room after a heated 3-on-3 game.  Supposedly, Wafer walked away and West followed him into the locker room.  But as of today, they are buddies according to West - "I'm competitive, he's competitive, as long as it's for the betterment of the team, there's nothing wrong with healthy competition and pushing each other to get better," West told "Things went a little far, but at the same time, we were able to move past that. We're professionals."  Asked if he felt the two had patched things up, West added: "Oh yeah, no question. We laughed about it [Sunday]."  Let’s just make sure Delonte is on his meds.
