Knowing he likely would not get a better offer in free agency, Mickael Pietrus picked up his $5.3 million option for 2011-12 on Monday. This has been widely expected since the Suns acquired Pietrus...

Suns' Pietrus Picks Up Option; Agent Expects Draft-Day Trade

(Agent Bill) McCandless said he and Pietrus are aware of the possibility of a Suns trade to better balance their roster.

"I'll be surprised if Lon (Babby, Suns president of basketball operations) doesn't make a couple deals on draft day or later," McCandless said. "If you have a surplus in one position and a need in another, guess what?"


Congrats, Trix!!

Congratulations to the Dallas Mavericks and their fans for beating the Miami Heat and winning the 2011 NBA Finals. We can only imagine the thrill (because the Suns are the oldest NBA franchise never to win an NBA title so all we have is our imagination and vicarious living through others). 

There's a gazillion different angles to discuss on the day after Game 6. LeBron James choking and the entire debate about his place in history. The "stars vs. team" battle and how that played out between the Heat and Mavericks. Jason Terry backing up his big mouth. The massive amount of payroll Mark Cuban has taken on over the years to get his team here. And of course, the joy Shawn Marion is feeling right about now.

The one thing I keep coming back to though, is the divergent paths taken by Dirk Nowitzki and Steve Nash since the two parted ways in 2004.

Dirk is an NBA Champion today while Nash has spent the entire postseason traveling with his new girlfriend and taking in the sites from Jamaica to Vancouver to Miami to Boston. While Steve is surely having fun playing Find Waldo, there's little doubt where he would rather be right now -- nursing a hangover after a night of celebrating an NBA Title. 

So what happened? Where did things go wrong for Steve when they finally went right for his buddy Dirk? 

Here's a few ideas to vote on, but by all means do what you do and leave some insightful comments.

Worst 13th Picks in NBA History

Mr. Scott Howard gives us a list of a bunch of guys you've never heard of. In other words, the floor for the 13th pick is in the basement while the ceiling is Kobe Bryant. #CrapShoot


As Mark Cuban and Dirk Nowitzki celebrate deliriously, it’s time for us to face the unfortunate fact that it could be some time before we see another NBA game. Come July 1, the NBA will lock...
