Six days left before the trading deadline, and here's the latest. There were rumors flying recently that the Kings and Clippers had revisited talks involving Ron Artest and Corey Maggette, but Joe Maloof said that wasn’t the case. The Kings simply wanted more the first time around, so any possible deal would have to be significantly sweetened. Sacramento Bee

Sweeten the dam deal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! seriously are they that stupid,,,,,SERIOUSLY come on now....

It looks like the deal that we missed, might have been Miami offering us Jason Kapono, if rumors were true. Jason is hitting only 56% from the 3 and won the 3 point shooting contest against the best in the league. Based on the fact that the Clipppers say they need an outside shooting 3 point specialist, I guess that was the deal we should have made.

My feelings are obviously different than Clippers management on these issues. The Miami rumors seemed to be a multiple player deal. The only names I heard mentioned was Kapono, Posey, and Maggette. But the deal never went through so who knows what might have been going down. If Dumleavy is hell bent on trading Maggette and the Clippers are committed to bring in an outside shooter, then Kapono fits the bill.

You may want to go back and read what I actually said about these trades. I preface my remarks with how I probably disagree with Clippers management on issues surrounding the roster and trades. I never promoted the Miami trade, but was open to Iverson coming in if we gave up the right assets. Vince would have added to the show but can opt out soon. Artest is poison. Poison to every team where he has played, and he has really only had one good complete season. If the Clips are going for an outside shooter, Jason is currently the best out there right now. If you do not think so, then find me a player who is shooting better than 58% from the 3. Find me one who is shooting better than 48% from the 3. Go ahead, where is he? Has he been offered to the Clippers? Did he win the 3 point shooting contest on All Star weekend against the best in the NBA? It is a mute point because Miami will probably not trade him to the Clippers at this point. His asking price just went up. Personally, I dream to have Ray Allen come in. He is the guy I want. He is a better all around player than Kapono. He has a work ethic like Elton Brand. He is a leader. He is a great locker room guy. He is the one that I want. LOL.
