- On AOL Fanhouse, Free Darko's Bethlehem Shoals perfectly sums up how Steve Nash has gotten the short end of the stick in Phoenix.

- HoopSpeak's Beckley Mason with his thoughts on the difficulties of writing about the Lakers- an excellent read.

- Stop-n-Pop sums up the frustration of Timberwolves' fans, following Monday's loss at Boston.

- J-Rich-for-VC a like-for-like trade? Not so much, say Seth Pollack of Bright Side of the Sun.
