And in a stand-up move, Magic Johnson has offered that the $500,000 tampering fine be taken out of his paycheck.

Though, not very sacrificial of him, given he's made of money...

The Lakers announced that they will retire both of Kobe Bryant's numbers come December 18th against the Warriors. Kobe will be the first player to have both numbers retired by the same team in NBA history, well deserved Kobe.

Melo gets traded to the Thunder of all teams. Knicks didnít really get much back in my opinion but with Melo pretty much controlling where he will go, Knicks didnít have many options.

Kanter, McDermott and a draft pick will be coming back to the Knicks.

They unloaded Kanter? Eh, I guess they're content with Adams.

Condolences to anyone who ever thought McDermott was a good idea.

There's only one ball on the court. How are Westy, PG-13 and Melo going to get their shots? I don't know how this is going to work but this is now the era of Super-Teams so they are going to try. Poor Enes Kanter. He posted about loyalty on social media a few days ago and then gets traded. With this trade, the Thunder have a big weakness at PF unless they are going to play Melo there full-time. Right now they have Patrick Patterson slotted in.

Wow seriously, your the first Thunder fan that I have heard that did not like the trade. I think itís a great trade for you guys, itís not like Kanter and McDermott were key pieces.

yea, well Melo seems to have a bit of an ego. I mean he wanted out of NY but was trying to dictate the terms of the trade, only allowing certain cities to be discussed and stuff. I'm not sure if that ego belongs in OKC.

About the Melo trade, sounds like OKC is trying to build a team with one objective. Beat The Warriors

Yea I agree with the ego part but I wonít put all the blame on him for wanting to leave New York. Phil Jackson didnít treat him well during his tenure in New York, not surprised Melo wanted out of the toxic situation.

On paper I think itís a great deal for the Thunder but we will see once the season starts.

EVERY franchise is trying to build a team with that objective.

Just fresh off the Carmelo news yesterday, the Bulls and Dwyane Wade agree to a buyout making him a free agent. This was rumored to happen for a while now and ta da, it has happened.

Wade's apparently going to Cleveland.

Most of me doesn't care, especially since he wasn't even on Miami last year, but then there's that little tiny part of me that's like:.

I really hope they don't expect him to fill Kyrie's shoes.

That'll even be hard for Isaiah to do in his current condition.
