Guys remember this: a woman who truly loves you will give you her all. She will fight for you until her dying breath, and will keep on trying despite any obstacles that maycome in her way. She won't listen to any warnings, and even if you push her away, she'll continue to shower you with her love. But the moment she decides in her heart that she is done, she is done. So appreciate her love, because once she decides to take it away for good, believe me, nothing can change her mind back.
The NBA trade deadline has gone and past after months of indecision from Dwight Howard, he remains the starting center for the Orlando Magic for at least one more season. Howard’s trade demands and retractions have been well documented by various sports outlets throughout the entire year.
Dwight Howard’s indecision is just the latest chapter in the Nets’ series of unfortunate events that could lead to disastrous ones if Deron Williams leaves via free agency this summer. When the dust settled the Nets did acquire All-Star talent to help the team, by shipping the injury plagued Shawne Williams and Mehmet Okur along with a top 3 protected 2012 first round draft pick for Gerald Wallace.
Wallace immediately fills a hole the team has had for years. Ever since the Nets traded Richard Jefferson for Bobby Simmons and Yi Jianlian in 2008, New Jersey has seen a plethora of forwards fill the spot, many of who are no longer in the league. There has been Bobby Simmons, Jarvis Hayes, Chris Douglas-Roberts, Trenton Hassell, Terrence Williams, Travis Outlaw, Stephen Graham. This year alone three forwards who have been slotted at the small forward position in the starting lineup have experience season ending injuries (Damion James, Shawne Williams, Keith Bogans). For the Nets their weakest position (DeSean Stevenson and D-Leaguer Andre Emmett) may now have become their deepest with Wallace and the career resurgence of Gerald Green.
Wallace, nicked named “Crash” for his relentless play on the court, has been in the league since 2001. He spent one year at the University of Alabama then was selected by the Sacramento Kings in the first round. After three years with the Kings, the Charlotte Bobcats picked Wallace in the expansion draft when they first entered the league. He spent seven years with the Bobcats and even made the All-Star team in 2010, until he was traded to the Portland Trailblazers last season. While in Portland Wallace was credited for injecting the team with a lot of passion and effort that resulted in their playoff run last year.
