      Or try and fix Lebron’s father, Greg Oden.  Let Kander do his thing.

        Oden has already been seeing the best doctors in the world and it hasn’t helped.  I doubt there is any magician out there to fix him.

    Patrick,

    I’m very curious where the post-”Malice at the Palace” Indiana Pacers fit in.

    How many days would it be on draft night? I can’t see Dumars making a trade much before then.
