THROUGH THE WIRE: MONDAY (01/24/10)
24. It looks like Carmelo Anthony isn't the only one leaving contract offers on the table. After the New Jersey deal died last week across the Hudson, the New York Knicks have an offer for Denver. The Knicks who are hoping to craft a superteam of their own to rival their rivals Miami with Stoudemire, Carmelo and hopefully Chris Paul. They have presented Denver with these Knick nuggets, impressive swingman Wilson Chandler, Landry Fields, the expiring contract of Eddy Curry and possibly tlaent Anthony Randolph for a first round pick. Denver however have gone one better then Carmelo by not just leaving this contract on the table, but pushing it off, rejecting the Knicks deal. Chicago and Houston also are looking to be part of the 'Melo mayhem. As for the Knicks, they better try again or wait for the offseason, where Carmelo could end up playing out and being a free agent. Still, right now we ask you. Who's in control in this situation? Sond off!
48. Anthony Randolph may not be part of a Denver/New York deal but he's still looks like he could be trading places like Eddie Murphy. This raw talent is in hot demand by the Portland Trail Blazers who are missing more than a couple of players. This talented forward is out of the rotation but could go full circle for a roster spot out west. Portland however are only offering lottery picks. Sll don't gamble on New York keeping this guy past February 24th's trade deadline.
82. Some of the Miami Heats's superfriends are injured and out cold right now. Good for them one of their biggest free agent signings, not presented with fireworks has returned himself from injury with a boom. Mike Miller shot the lights out and dropped 32 on his return to play against Toronto. The Heat iced the Raptors 120-103 thanks to strong play from the former Rookie Of The Yaer who also rebounded from injury and ill-for with 10 boards. With Wade out of action with Bosh, it was Miller's time and as Mike stepped up Wade posted "Dwyane who?" on his Twitter, how about a re-tweet Chris?
O.T. There will be no Bird call for Denver who will miss Chris Anderson today. The Birdman is flapping with injury...Portlands Brandon Roy however is looking optimistic after surgery on both his knees. He expects to be back this season, still with all that cartilage damage do his legs have anything left?...meanwhile with all the inuries in the league right now somethings got to give like a Big Boi and Mary J. Blige song. A battered and bruised Eric Gordon believes the league is getting too physical and this stocky, strong guard is no shrinking violet. Maybe with these comments and his lower-back contusion, suffered against Golden State, this warrior has pinpointed the problem? TIM DAVID HARVEY.
