The slim reaper is better. What a dumb ass thinking he can make his own nickname
The New York Knicks are attempting to resume trade talks with the Toronto Raptors on Kyle Lowry, according to sources.

The Knicks are offering packages including Iman Shumpert, Raymond Felton and Beno Udrih, sources say.

New York is reluctant to include Tim Hardaway Jr. or a future first round pick. The Raptors almost certainly will require one of those two assets to trade Lowry directly to the Knicks.

"It comes down to, can they talk themselves into getting rid of a first-rounder or Hardaway Jr. for Lowry," one league source said.

League sources say a three-team deal has also been discussed in which Jeff Teague would end up with the Raptors, while Shumpert gets routed to the Atlanta Hawks and Lowry to the Knicks. Another trade scenario has the Knicks acquiring Teague. Those conversations have only been preliminary.

For most of his career, Durant has been simply called 'KD', which he enjoys. But Durant is now giving himself the nickname 'The Servant'.

"I like to serve everybody. My teammates. Ushers at the game. The fans," said Durant.

"I know it's kinda weird to make your own nickname, but I like that one better," Durant said.

KD, bruh

Bill Russell on being left off Lebron's Mt Rushmore

"Hey, thank you for leaving me off your Mount Rushmore. I'm glad you did. Basketball is a team game, it's not for individual honors. I won back-to-back state championships in high school, back-to-back NCAA championships in college, I won an NBA championship my first year in the league, an NBA championship in my last year, and nine in between. That, Mr. James, is etched in stone.

Like a f**kin' boss.
That is like a boss, and Russell is one of the greatest of all time. But IMO, I'd take Kareem over him every single day of the week.

Russell was the better defender and better rebounder but Kareem was by far the better scorer. Its close in my opinion.

To me the only automatic without question guy is Michael Jordan. After that I think there are 8 or 9 guys that could go there
Magic Johnson
Oscar Robertson
Kareem
Bill Russell
Lebron
Larry Bird
Wilt
Kobe
Shaq

I would probably go...
Jordan
Russell
Magic
Wilt or Kareem (so close)

The Sacramento Kings offered the Boston Celtics a package of Isaiah Thomas, Ben McLemore and draft picks for Rajon Rondo, according to a source.

The deal did not go through due to Rondo's lack of interest in signing a long-term contract with the Kings.

The Celtics reportedly want multiple first round picks in a deal for Rondo.
Oh and...

The Toronto Raptors are interested in Rajon Rondo, according to multiple sources.

The Raptors like Rondo's basketball resume and he would also bring a 'star' element to the franchise. Rondo has many backers in the organization.

Rondo is scheduled to become a free agent in 2015.

The Raptors have been engaging in trade talks with Kyle Lowry, though they are prepared to keep him past the deadline. Lowry will be a free agent in July.
