Saturday (Very) Quickie

I'm still convinced LeBron signs a 3-year deal with whoever, getting us back here in 2013 again. Whee.


*OMG the Flyers. Coming back from being down 3-0 in a series to win 4 straight -- even if it's not unprecedented in hockey (it's been done 2x before) -- is ridiculous. Congrats to Philly fans.

*Come on, sports media: John Calipari is NOT going to the NBA -- even to coach LeBron. He has the best job in college hoops history. He ain't leaving.

*Donovan McNabb doesn't need to apologize for not getting the Eagles a Super Bowl title, and I'm not sure that Philly fans appreciate it. They probably see it as confirmation of his softness.

*Hawks fire Mike Woodson. Unsure where he ends up. Lots of chatter that if the Cavs fire Mike Brown, Atlanta should hustle to hire him.

*Which contender wants Roy Oswalt for the 2nd half of the season?

*So now I'm obsessed with the idea of LeBron going to the Nets rather than the Knicks. Consider:

LeBron + Another good free agent + Top 4 pick in the draft (Wall or Turner or Favors or Cousins) + existing Nets talent (Devin Harris, Brook Lopez, Terrence Williams).

That takes this year's 15-win team to next year's 50-win team.

The Knicks would be LeBron + Another good FA + NO DRAFT PICK + existing Knicks talent (Gallinari, Wilson Chandler, Toney Douglas).

That's certainly better than this year's team... but not nearly as good as the Nets would be, if LeBron's goal (after getting paid) is to win.

Maybe that's because I jogged past the Brooklyn Nets arena site yesterday. Enjoy your day. Super Saver!
