Daily Five: No Shortage of NBA Trade Rumors
Each day, we'll take a quick look at five of the most important stories going on in the NBA.
The Big Lead: "Michael Jordan is looking to become the owner of the Charlotte Bobcats. If he gets his way this would be his biggest move since his retirement. Hopefully, it would also be his most successful. MJ’s days since leaving the hardwood haven’t been so wonderful."
Marc J. Spears: "Denver Nuggets coach George Karl is again battling cancer and will take a leave of absence from the team, a source said Tuesday. The cancer isn’t considered life-threatening. Karl will make the announcement at a news conference Tuesday evening in Denver."
Dave Pemberton: "(Ben) Wallace could add toughness and interior defense to a contending team and a team would not have to invest anything long term with Wallace. He is making the veteran league minimum of $1.3 million as part of a one-year deal he signed in the offseason."
Detroit Bad Boys: "Speaking of LeBron James, it will be amusing to watch sportswriters find reasons why he should not be MVP. Believe me, it will happen. He's the best player in the league. In the minds of some idiots, that disqualifies him."
Brian Windhorst: "The Suns play fast and loose, and it is the loose part that would concern the Cavs. The only time he (Amar'e Stoudemire) played in a structured defense-first setup, last season, he was part of a rebellion that got the coach fired at the All-Star break."
