USA Today’s Sam Amick (@sam_amick) joined the show to talk about the big stories in the NBA. Here are some of his takes:
— Amick said he noticed that Kevin Durant’s attitude toward the media changed before the season and he’s become much more frank about the fact that he doesn’t care who criticizes him.
— Amick said that Amar’e Stoudemire would probably fit in with the Clippers better than any other team.
— Amick said that Carmelo Anthony will likely shut it down. He’s got nothing to play for in New York. Amick noted the whole thing was probably tough for Knicks fans.
— Amick isn’t sure when Ray Allen will pick a team.
— Amick said Denver is a team that could make moves before this week’s trade deadline.
