I have heard nothing today. It's quiet, too quiet...

Crickets
grass growing

Are crickets pushing any trade rumors?

Rumor is a trade of Brown for Bronie James

All these KD rumors...and KD used to look up to Michael Beasley.

Man Beasley could have been so much more...he's so natural on the floor...also IT sighting:

Where do you get that Durant used to look up to Beasley?  Durant is a few months older and was a year ahead of him in school, so that doesn’t make much sense.

I think I read something somewhere in like 2012, or maybe it was a comment on Youtube...

Might be this. But I think KD said something more specific, that Beasley was just better when they were kids.

MB: All the dudes on the mic were saying, 'Get this kid an agent.' He 12. Everybody else out there 25. 'Get this kid an agent.' Cross, cross, 40 feet. I knew for a while. My whole life I was always trying to catch up to where he was at.

KD: Hell no.

MB: When I met him, I ain't never played basketball but on the parks. You know what I'm saying? Like, he was working on his game. ... Like I ain't never worked out. I just hooped on the playground, always-picked-first type of guy. I met him, he was always just confident and everything.

KD: See, my story a little different. I was in the gym a lot, but I wouldn't go outside and play a lot. Mike had better feel for the game at that age than I did, because I was in the gym by myself. ...

I had to just cook up until my coach let me go outside and play. I was one of those dudes. So he had a better feel for like a game situation or playing against people, you know what I'm saying? So at that age I was like, "I wanna be like that." I wanted it to come that easy. It was always easy for him.


....

KD: Can I give you my take on it? So with Mike, it was always about focus. Like, he got a supreme skill, you know what I'm sayin'? And he could put the ball in the basket, and he had a knack for the ball ... he was always around the ball. So I knew that as a kid, like you said, he was getting rebounds that grown men couldn't get in a game.

My thing was I had an appropriate fear. Like, I knew if I didn't go to the gym that I wasn't going to be able to perform the right way. Or that next game I wouldn't be able to go out there and produce if I didn't work on my game.

Mike, he had to go through this. He had to realize like, "[dang], this could be taken away from me if I don't lock in." And I knew that, as a friend, it was tough for me to see people defaming his character. This dude would do anything for anybody -- he's loyal, he loves his friends, he loves his family, he loves the game of basketball. But, like I tell a lot of people, I was fortunate enough to go into a situation where -- I didn't have to play behind D-Wade, or I didn't have to live in Miami as a 19-year-old. If I did, it might be a different story.

And my moms was on me from day one. She was always there, always there to let me know when I'm messing up, and sometimes Mike didn't have that person as an 18-, 19-year-old to let him know, like, "Look, man, this is sacred right here. You might need to focus on this a little bit more." He focused on the game, he loved it, but you need to put your whole mind and body and spirit into this.

I had that at an early age. I had people telling me about that. You know what I'm saying? And he came from playing street ball. His parents, his mom, was like, "Yo, you want to play ball? Cool. Go ahead. Have a good time." My mom was like, "Yo, get up. You got to go to the gym."

So it is all about what you was taught as a kid and those habits that you built. And after a while, he built some tough habits, as he would say. But now he had to go through that just so he could see now ... that look, every team he's been on the last few years has been like, you know what you gonna get out of him. He scores 20 points any night if you give him the ball. Now he just needs somebody to really invest in that and want that. And I feel it's time now. So we're going to end up in the same place. It's just going to be different paths.

Man, I need to watch this more.  Rashard Lewis is still kicking around?  I loved that dude.  Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf?!  He retired 21 years ago!

Well I was huge into Tmac in the early 2000's but wasn't really super familiar with the general NBA landscape
