Default Deal In The Works?

Hmmm .... Either Bosh is doubting BC's efforts on improving the team or BC wants Chris' input on some of the deals that he's working on.

What do you think?

guaranteed that they are trying to get his input.
he's the star on this team.... star's get the royal treatment and he's likely giving his input on what trades he'd like more.

I hope they are just keeping him informed, but not asking him for approval, or BC is a bitch.

i'm pretty sure every star player in the league has alot of pull when it comes to trades.
moreso than just giving input on improving the team but also giving input to understand how this could effect chemistry.

GM's want to keep their stars happy. this helps.

You think so?

You think Nash had any idea that there was a deal in the works to send Raja Bell to Charlotte?

Or RIP Hamilton knew that Billups was going to Denver?

doubt it.

maybe not, but i'm thinking Stoudamire might have been asked...

IMO it would be naive for one to think that just because of what Nash said to the media that he was unaware of the trade.

Not just what Nash said, the way he acted during the game and after, would lead one to believe he definately had no clue whatsoever. Im pretty sure of that.

Alot of chitter chatter today. More than usual. Hopefully something goes down for the better of our team.

What if Bryan Colangelo should ask the fans of Toronto before he makes a trade. Like maybe a poll on the Raptors website, that would be cool.

This could be left up to debate but I'm pretty sure the suns are considered Nash's team..... for now.

I don't know about Rip or Freddy, but I'm pretty sure this guy was kept in the loop.
