they are OBVIOUSLY trying to get kobe
and i think they will
mcdyess and ward are FA's...then they have TWO first round picks, and MACJEI LAMPE a HUGE steal in this trade...and BARBOSA HAS GAME...they opened tha door for him at point guard
Phoenix will have bout 10 million in cap space...
I TOTALLY, TOTALLY agree....
think outside the box fellas...it helps the Suns in the long run, don't you think?...The Arizona Republic just reported that the Suns are going to waive Ward's bloated contract and with all of those expiring contracts including Antonio McDyess's, the Suns will have about $20 million dollars in cap space to spend next summer...some say for use for Kobe Bryant...but of course what's up with all this Kobe blabber and sweepstakes? Everyone seems to want him, the Knicks used to want him but with Marbury's contract they can't really afford Kobe unless Kobe isn't in it for the money. And believe me, Kobe doesn't play for money, he plays for the love of the game...but still money would be good...if anything I wish Kobe would stay, although chances are that with all these teams pressuring him out of the Lakers, I would have to guess that Kobe wants a new surroundings of teammates...say, like the Clippers. To help an up-and-coming team get over par. The Clips have money to spend and that money the Suns have reserved may come to naught if they don't get Kobe. Hence, they have good core players in Howard Eisley, McDyess, Lampe and even two future first round draft picks, hell thats a lot and thats way too good even for great players in Marbury and Hardaway. You have to think in the long run, the Knicks are helping themselves too, trust me, getting front-term insurance, both teams are getting great deals, just imagine Marbury and Houston in the backcourt--pass and dish, pass and dish, pass and dish--and Hardaway off the bench. Crazy...but again, the Suns have good core players and with the return of Zarko and Amare you have no doubt but to say that they still have a manageable lineup. Now they can use Barbosa more--and speaking of Barbosa--he just scored 27 points against the Bulls! Star-power! See, the Suns are really getting the upper deck of the trade--lest Isiah still made an excellent move for his team.
