New Orleans Hornets Anderson, Banks Trade Aids In NBA West
Written by 

The Hornets improved their their chances of being a contender in the NBA West this season by trading Peja Stojakovic and Jerryd Bayless to the Toronto Raptors for Jarrett Jack, David Anderson and Marcus Banks. With this trade, the Hornets also saved money.

The deal to pass muster under league rules, actually will be evacuated as two separate trades to get around a restriction preventing Bayless from being included in a multi-player deal prior to Dec. 23 - two months from the date the Hornets acquired Bayless form Portland. Stojakopvic is in the final year of his contract, earning $14,25 million, and has fallen out of the rotation in New Orleans, averaging just 7.5 points in less than 15 minutes per game playing behind Marco Belinelli, whom the Hornets acquired in another trade with the Raptors during the summer.

 

Bayless is averaging 4.5 points and 3.5 assists as the backup point guard behind Chris Paul. Jack, who is earning $4.6 million and has two more seasons left on his contract has started all 13 games for the Raptors, averaging 10.8 points and 4.5 assists. But he has played an average of only 20 minutes per night, basically operating in time-share with Jose Calderon at point guard. Anderson, a backup center, is averaging 5.1 points and 3.1 rebounds, and Banks (in the final year of his contract, making $4.85 million) has appeared in only three games this season...

  • Poll: Trump strong on jobs, weak on tweets, viewed as reckless, thin-skinned, sexist
  • President Trump, It doesn't feel like Independence Day
  • YIPPIE! The naked truth about free speech, cherished especially on Independence Day

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
