Speaking of Jameer Nelson, he's already checking the real estate pages before the season's opening tip. If other people want you, at least it means you're probably not the problem.

It's never a good sign when you hear speculation about trading your best player in October. Usually that indicates there'll be a massive number in the 'L' column by the start of the new year. In Toronto, we're reading trade rumors involving Rudy Gay. With a new influx of suits calling the shots you can expect them to go in their own direction. In New Orleans, we're reading trade rumors about Eric Gordon. In Boston, we're reading everlasting rumors regarding Rajon Rondo. You want a GM who's not afraid to act, but damn let us dream until December at least.
