Kupchak is pretty much Kenny of the NBA. Except he's actually delivered this offseason. Trades a trade exception for Steve Nash in July, and just now he traded Bynum for Dwight Howard WITHOUT giving up Pau Gasol in either deal.

Nash-Kobe-Artest-Gasol-Howard, pretty much the NBA title favorites this year.

Wow, I'm just in awe of this trade. I just don't understand how they were able to keep Gasol and basically upgrade Bynum into Howard. Guess it's been awhile since I've noticed a big 4-team trade.

With that said, let's see if Kobe will actually get the ball down low instead of forcing shots now.

Source: Bryant likely to retire in 2014

By then he'd be 36. His game currently doesn't revolve around as much athleticism as it used to be. Safe to say he'll go out as a top player in his position, Nick style.

With the NBA's new collective bargaining agreement making it difficult for team to have three max contract players, the 2014 decision awaiting LeBron James has become more interesting.

Over the past few months, the Oklahoma City Thunder and Memphis Grizzlies have traded away James Harden and Rudy ***, respectively, as they avoid the luxury tax.

James' agent, Rich Paul, has been privately telling people for two years that he is interested in bringing his client back to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Paul's agency, Klutch Sports, is based in Cleveland.

"Riley has never given them the run of the place in Miami," one high-level associate of James' inner-circle said, "and they could all be back in business together in Cleveland. For Rich and [business manager] Maverick [Carter], they all see the benefits of getting the credit for bringing LeBron home again."

Dwyane Wade is entering his thirties, while Kyrie Irving may be the NBA's best point guard in his prime in 2014.

James has been contemplating a return to Cleveland throughout his tenure with the Heat, even second-guessing himself the night of decision. When owner Dan Gilbert released his infamous letter, James understood that there was no turning back, according to the report.

And with that the Lakers season is just about over. God damn, this has got to be the most over-hyped teams in sports history.

The only person to blame for this is Jim Buss. I don't even like the Lakers and I hate that guy. Completely mishandled use of a team with more talent than last year that theoretically should have went deeper in the playoffs.
