    FIVE QUICK HOOPS THOUGHTS 1. Jerseys NFL Wholesale . CARMELO ANTHONY: As Knicks fans worry about the potential departure with his decision to opt out, I see this as a blessing in disguise.  As currently constructed, the Knicks have NO shot at being a legitimate contender. Yes. The organization gave up a kings ransom to get a major Asset yet when you reflect on his time in NY hes been a terrific scoring talent and theyve had their share of ups and downs and in his defense - not all his fault. He is what he is at this stage of his career -- a brilliant scorer who plays very hard on the offensive end of the court. In the end, sometimes in sports, business and life the best strategy is to cut your losses and move on. With Tyson Chandler, Amare Stoudemire and Andrea Bargnani all off the books next season, it allows president Phil Jackson to shape the organization in his image which is the right move. The key is to avoid all the noise from the NY media with demands to go for Big Name $$ Quick Fixes and make thoughtful basketball decisions. This organization tries too often to Win the Back Page rather than do whats smart. Yes, a terrific talent could walk out the door for little or nothing yet in 12 months you get to truly build the right foundation for long term success. Good common sense. 2. CHICAGO BULLS: Youll hear their name lots in the next 10 days when Melos name comes up and if I were Melo this makes complete sense to me as long as hes willing to take a pay cut that he can earn some back in quality endorsements if hes a significant piece on a major-league winning team in Chicago. Against the Knicks, a quick comparison: Money: NY, ownership: Chicago…. not close, management: Chicago…. Sorry, but Phil Jackson has never been a president/GM, coach: Chicago…. not close, team talent level: Chicago. If Derrick Rose can even get back to being 80 per cent of what he was, this is a nice edge.   In my mind, the Bulls make the most sense if -- and its a big IF -- hes willing to sacrifice. Hell be held totally accountable here on a daily basis. No nonsense.  Defining moment for him in his career. 3. KEVIN LOVE: Where there is smoke ….  If Im the TWolves, I move him as soon as I can and get on with the business of reshaping my team while his value is at its highest. Many folks say wait until the trade deadline, yet Im not sure youll get better than the next few weeks. I think you owe it to yourself and your fans to cut the cord as soon as you can. Believe me; if they really want him, theyll blink and offer you close (not all) of what you want. Be proactive. In 12 months, hell be out the door. Deal with it and rid yourself of the drama.  Terrific talent, yet hes got you to how many playoff appearances? Sure, the other 14 teammates matter a whole lot in the Western Conference but its time to be realistic and based upon your market build a team rather than the concern with having name guys. 4. ZACH RANDOLPH (Grizzlies): Trying to get an extension worked out in Memphis. Makes perfect sense to me.  All the guy does is produce and hes done it in the context of winning/playoffs. A double-double machine who is one of the toughest covers in the league, hes been very good for you. A piece you cant lose. If the term and money make sense, do it. 5. JOEL EMBIID: Feel awful for this young man. Watching him play this year at the University of Kansas hes an intriguing talent with loads of major potential that I love.  On the other hand, with some teams freaked out by the injuries to bigs like Sam Bowie and Greg Oden over the years with the complete - and I mean complete - change in the way the NBA game is played on the perimeter it might benefit him to fall a bit to a team that will be patient with him and allow him to work his way in at the right pace as a rookie. Hes got a chance to be very good, yet in a different league that bigs came into 20 years ago. If he drops a bit, someones going to be quite lucky if he holds up physically.  Risk vs. Reward.  Can change in a very positive way or end some careers with this pick. Will be interesting to watch unfold. NFL Jerseys From China .C. -- Al Jefferson said he feels like hes playing the best basketball of his 10-year NBA career. Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys . -- Adrian Peterson takes a look around the league and sees big money flying everywhere.JERSEY CITY, N.J. - Peyton Manning counts $17.5 million against the Denver Broncos salary cap this season. For less than double that, the Seahawks pay for their entire starting defence. With some expert drafting and a few selective forays into free agency, Seattle built a dominant unit thats also inexpensive, with the starting 11 costing under $34 million. Its a young defence, too, and thats a major reason its so affordable. Of the 18 players who have started at least one game this season, six were drafted by the Seahawks in 2011 or later, which means theyre still on their very reasonable rookie contracts. Where Seattle has spent money is on the defensive line, because depth there is a major priority. Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett were signed as free agents during the off-season for an $8.5 million tab; neither is expected to start in Sundays Super Bowl, but both are key parts of the rotation. "The nice part about working here is we have a real style about how we want to play," defensive co-ordinator Dan Quinn said. "They know how to bring the players in." After coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider were hired in early 2010, one of their first big moves was to trade for Chris Clemons. They wanted him for the "LEO" defensive end position in their hybrid 4-3 defensive scheme, the weakside rusher who sometimes plays with his hand off the ground. Their style has alllowed the Seahawks to find great value with players who might not fit into many other teams systems. NFL Jerseys Paypal. Length and speed are attributes Quinn covets at all positions, confident the coaching staff can develop guys with raw skills into productive starters. Never was this truer than the 2011 draft. The Seahawks had seven picks in the final three rounds and used all but one on defensive players. "Overall, I think we were able to really improve the athleticism and speed of our team and then we were able to do some things up front from a strength and toughness standpoint," Schneider said that day. He would prove to be right. Seattle got its two current starting cornerbacks in the fifth (Richard Sherman) and sixth (Byron Maxwell) rounds. The Seahawks also added two linebackers who have started this season: K.J. Wright in the fourth and Malcolm Smith in the seventh. For all the late-round success, Seattle also hasnt whiffed when taking defensive players at the start of the draft. The Seahawks two defensive first-round picks in the last five years are both starters: linebacker Bruce Irvin (2012) and safety Earl Thomas (2010). But whats been crucial, Quinn said, is a franchise philosophy to give players an equal chance no matter how much theyre paid. "Lets not worry about where they were drafted or how they got here," he said. "How far can we take them?" Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaCheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
