Another Coach Swatted: Denver Nuggets Fire Coach Brian Shaw

The Denver Nuggets have fired coach Brian Shaw after 1½ seasons.

Senh: The triangle offense takes another hit. Derek Fisher couldn't get it to work for the New York Knicks. Brian Shaw, with a season and a half under his belt, fared just as poorly. One could make the case that New York didn't have the talent, outside of Carmelo Anthony, to make it work, but Shaw did. The Nuggets, under former coach George Karl, won 57 games before Shaw took over. The players were the same before the recent trades. So far, it seems, only Phil Jackson can make the triangle offense work.

Why Africans will be NBA's new stars

Dwight Howard traded to Lakers in 4-team deal

Dwight Howard

The deal means the Lakers get Howard; the Magic get Arron Afflalo, Al Harrington, Nikola Vucevic, just drafted Moe Harkless (No. 15 pick in this draft) and a first round pick from each of the three other teams; the Sixers get Andrew Bynum and take on Jason Richardson and his contract; the Nuggets get Andre Iguodala. That varies from the original report but fits with reports that Pau Gasol is not part of the deal. Expect some changes in the final form, but that seems to be the core of it.

Senh: This is just not fair. I thought the new CBA is supposed to keep trades like this from happening. I guess not. Essentially, the Los Angeles Lakers only had to give up Andrew Bynum for Dwight Howard. Steve Nash, Kobe Bryant, and Dwight Howard. My goodness. Respectively, the best shooting point guard, the best closer, and the most dominant center. Just hand them another title now.


Report: Magic, Lakers talk 4-team Howard swap

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports is reporting the Orlando Magic and Los Angeles Lakers are crafting a four-team deal – including the Denver Nuggets and Philadelphia 76ers – that would send center Dwight Howard to the Lakers.

Senh: Dwight Howard to the Lakers. That's just not fair.
