Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

yeah, it's definitely a win for the Bulls...but the Kings do want a big to play along Cousins to help defensively.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Quote:
. Mark Jackson was the target of an extortion plot that was being carried out by an ex-stripper and an ex-con. According to The Smoking Gun, Jackson had sent nude photos of himself to Alexis Adams during an affair around six years ago. From TSG:

The shakedown scheme, which was foiled by the FBI with Jackson’s cooperation, resulted this week in the arrest of Alexis Adams, the former dancer, and her alleged coconspirator, ex-convict Marcus Shaw.

Adams, 28, and Shaw, 40, have been named in felony criminal complaints filed under seal in U.S. District Court in Oakland, California. The duo, whose relationship is unclear, is accused of trying to extort a six-figure payment from Jackson in return for them not disseminating/selling the explicit photos to the “vultures of the media.”

Jackson, who has been married for 22-years, met Adams while he was working as an announcer for the New Jersey Nets and she was dancing at a gentleman’s club in New York. Jackson was first approached by Shaw in April in Memphis.

The man–who Jackson later identified as Shaw–showed the NBA coach a “folder containing some of the compromising photos” and a CD that he said contained “recordings of voice mail messages” that Jackson “left for Adams during their affair.”

When Jackson asked what he sought for the photos and recordings, Shaw replied, “I want to be made whole.” Shaw, who claimed to have found the compromising material in a storage locker he had purchased for $3500, said he wanted money to fix his teeth and get his car out of an impound lot.

Jackson eventually gave Shaw $5000. The Warriors’ coach contacted the authorities after the extortionists contacted his wife. Jackson offered up to $200,000 to get the photos back.

Looking forward to seeing which GM will be fired three years down the line for picking Harrison Barnes.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

So the Wolves tried to trade Derrick Williams for the #2 pick...the Bobcats rejected.

They turned around and tried to trade him for the the #7 pick...the Warriors rejected.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

wtf. why does no one like Derrick Williams all of a sudden?

I would totally take Williams over anyone available with the 7th pick.

He did have a pretty lackluster rookie year.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

That's not a reason to give up on him so quickly. Just one shortened season. Besides, going into the draft, everyone should have known he was going to be a project. I'm still high on him.

per twitter: Bulls are taking Tyshawn Taylor at 29.

And the ESPN Bulls beat writer says they're not dealing.



let's just stand pat and see how core can fail again in two seasons. great stuff here, bulls GMs.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Why? Do they really need another PG?

They already have Rose & C.J. signed, they'd be better off just re-signing JL3.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

The Cavs are shopping Anderson Varejao for a lottery pick, probably late lottery.

The Suns pick is between Kendall Marshall and Jeremy Lamb, the Suns are reportedly leaning towards Marshall. The Suns have the 13th pick I believe.
