    <div class="report">


    As Brandon Roy contemplates retiring from basketball, an ominous quote emerged via Joe Freeman on Twitter.</p>
    </div>
    <div class="impact">
    A source said that Roy met with doctors on
    Thursday and was told after his knee evaluation: "You can't do this. You
    might end up not walking." Roy is said to be very emotional and it's
    doubtful he'll meet with the media today. It sounds like his career is
    over, although we're still awaiting for it to become official. Another
    sad story in a generally sad day as training camps open and free agency
    starts.


    Terribly sad, I have always liked this guy and he's a great player. I guess was...The Blazers have terrible luck.

    Christian Ponder (hip) returned to practice on Friday.</P></DIV>
    <DIV class=impact>Backup Joe Webb is still handling the bulk of the first-team reps in the media-access portion of practice. Per beat writer Tom Pelissero, the "best guess right now" is that Webb will start against the Lions. Check back later in the day for an update on Ponder's status. </DIV>

    Re: THEE NYG SWAG THREAD

    From Michael Wilbon:



    Unless the appeal filed by the teams
    involved in Thursday's proposed trade (or a lawsuit reportedly being
    considered by Paul) reverses the decision, the league now apparently
    will allow free agency only as long as enough players to its liking are
    willing to sign up to play in Portland, New Orleans, Charlotte, Salt
    Lake City, Milwaukee, etc. You think Stern would have stopped this trade
    had Paul been dealt for essentially the same package to, oh, Indiana?
    Or Memphis? Or Oklahoma City? There isn't a chance in hell.</p>

    But
    what stopping this trade does is prevent New Orleans from getting
    players who can help that small-market franchise not only recover, but
    move on. Odom is one of the most versatile frontcourt players in the
    NBA. Scola averaged 18 points and eight rebounds per game last season.
    Martin can get you 20 points a night. Dragic is a suitable backup.
    What's wrong with this deal? Nothing, except the Lakers made it. This
    isn't a heist; it's a deal that's easy to defend if you're looking at it
    from the Hornets' viewpoint. What's more, executives from the Lakers
    and executives from the Hornets made it. Club officials.</p>

    Problem is, there are owners like Cleveland's Dan Gilbert, still whining like a 2-year-old over the departure of LeBron James, who want some sort of guarantee that small-market teams will get their share of free agents.</p>

    We're sure to hear about a conflict of interest, what with the Hornets
    being run by the league and dealing a great player to Los Angeles. So,
    it would be OK for the NBA to trade Paul to a dreadful team, say the
    Timberwolves? The NBA knew there could be the appearance of a conflict
    when it made the decision to run the Hornets. Why should Paul play in
    New Orleans indefinitely? Because management there was incompetent,
    which it was? Because the Knicks -- talk about the pot calling the
    kettle black -- don't like the trade? Since when do owners not involved
    with a trade get to lobby against it? Where in the NBA rules does it say
    other clubs get to whine that the Lakers will be too good again? And
    who stands up to them and says, "Hey you MORONS, it's quite possible the
    Hornets made a good deal here."</p>

    The Nets are "closing in" on a contract with Nene.</p>
    </div>
    <div class="impact">
    The team reportedly increased the offer to Nene
    last night, and it sounds like it's possible a deal may get done soon.
    Considering how fast and furious rumors are flying, there's also a
    chance a deal doesn't get done at all. Clearly, New Jersey is clearly
    being aggressive in its approach to improve.
    </div>[/quote]

    just went home for lunch and watched sportscenter. They seem pretty hell bent that a deal may get done today for Howard.

    Nene at PF?
    Fear the name, appreciate the game
