There really is not much to talk about this week other than all-star weekend and some trades. I'll start off with Jermaine O'Neal and Jamario Moon. I think the Heat are getting the better of this trade. They are getting two elite veterens and giving up a struggling Shawn Marion, Marcus Banks, who is pretty much only a shooting threat, and cash, which is not a problem in Miami. Agree or disagree with me, post your opinion. Now, to All-stars. Fridays celebrity game SUCKED. Dominique weighed 400 pounds and couldn't make a lay-up, the globe-trotters didn't try, and the celebrities were terrible! Kara Lawson was the only one trying, right? The rookie sophmore game was pretty entertaining though. Durant and Beasley lit up the court with electrifying plays and the others stepped up and contributed like Mayo and Gordon. For the dunk contest, I am pretty sure Rudy Fernandez will come through and win, but you tell me who you think, and Bibby will win the three point shoot-out. All-star game, gotta go with the West. My man Kobe and my other favorite Chris Paul. Thats all for now. Post your thoughts on the trade and all-star weekend and I'll post next week. See you then.

This Weeks NBA News

I agree with you about Marion not really clicking in Miami. He really wasn't used to being the second-best on the team. Now lets talk about this weeks traded and injuries. Kevin Garnett out with a fluke knee injury and the Celtics are doomed.3 weeks of no KG. Amare, how the heck does an eye injury keep you out the whole season. Did Al Thorton really poke you that hard, seriously. The trading week was boring. None of the big names like Amare or Vince Carter were traded like they were planned. The biggest move was Rafer Alston moving to Orlando to replace the hurt Jameer Nelson. Thats pretty much it. Thats all for now. See you next week.

You are correct in that miami got the best of the trade.(I'm sure O'neal was very pleased) Miami gets a multi All-Star at a position where they need help.If he can remain healthy it could really help them make a late push. For Marion he just didn't seem to click in the sunshine state maybe the northern climate can help him concentrate on BB and bring out his all around game. O'neal needs minutes and touches just what he shoul get in Miami.
