Cuban will become a 7 footer before he trades away Nash

Toronto Star: "There's about as much a chance (of Nash leaving Dallas) as me turning into a 7-footer with a 47-inch vertical leap by tomorrow," said Cuban, who, standing courtside last night, looked to be a 6-footer with no vertical leap to speak of.

Indeed, the prospect of Nash leaving the team with which he's played since 1999 — the team with which he transformed himself from underachieving injury case into one of the most widely admired players in the game — seems remote. Glimpse the Mavericks' performance with Nash out of the lineup for the first extended stretch in two seasons — a loss last night and a loss in Washington the night before, when the Canadian played just seven minutes — and you get an idea of his indispensability. To think Cuban won't outbid the thrifty folks who run Raptorland — well, it's unlikely.

But ...

"I've formed a lot of relationships with my teammates," said Nash. "These are things that go a long way, a lot further than money ... It would be difficult to leave Dallas, but if the day came that I had to leave then obviously Toronto would be my first choice."

Good. They've done enough damage to the team by making the sensless (in my opinion) trades they made over the off season. That's good news for Mav's fans to hear Cuban say this.

But what if Detroit offers Ben Wallace and Chauncey Billups for Nash and Danny Fortson? I'd seriously pull the trigger on that. But it probably won't happen...

God...I'd love to see Cuban grow 11 inches just to become one and trade away Nash....stops his pessimistic little-boy attitude...dude with the Bryon Russell!
I wish the Nuggets would trade places with the Lakers. Denver is awful.

thanks my Long Beach coach...high trajectories.
I really don't like Denver. Get me out of hell.

Yeah he better start growing because Nash can leave if he want's to.

It's not up to Cuban..

And if he can grow 11 inches he could start at center...

how about Ben Wallace, Richard Hamilton, and maybe 2 more players for Antoine Walker and Michael Finley?

THAT would be a great trade for BOTH teams
