That's why they are having this strike.

Let's see what happens at Minnesota, last year also there were rumours that
won't be able to pay Garnett but he did. In addition there is a difference
between Boston
and Minnesota, the C's revenues are amongst the top six in NBA.

>f) AW unhappy about C's not drafting Nazr

First off, it's only  hearsay and  Michael Holley could easily check the
fact with Antoine
before reporting it but he didn't. I don't see anything wrong in pulling for
your freinds to
be on your team everybody does that.

This is merely a conjecture on your part and has no basis in fact.

I am sure that kind of deal can happen if the C's want it that way but it
may cost
them more than 20.

>h) Team Chemistry

>There goes your team Chemistry.

Everybody has that kind of games and players understand it. Let me ask what
do you think
Malones shooting percentage was in the first two playoff games against the
Bulls? What was
Pippen's shooting percentage in the playoffs?
