In desperate need of a point guard after rookie broke his hand, the have turned their attention to Nick at Nite. Although no contact has been established yet with Van Exellent or the Mavs, the playoff-hungry feel this could be a perfect match. Is it just us or did Little Nicky want out of Denver because of all the losing? Word has it that His Airness has picked up the old orange again and is attempting to get his 39-year-old body back into playing shape. While no official decision has been made regarding his return, the Smack Gods would be shocked and mightily disappointed if MJ didn't honor his contract. Our sympathy and prayers go out to the family of Phil Smith, a member of Golden State's '74-75 championship team, who died yesterday of bone marrow cancer.

Two trade rumors we're hearing center around and . Moving Daniels, perhaps to New York or Cleveland, is more feasible considering the acquired to backup Le Petit Point. The are interested in trading for the Big Ticket, but hey, who isn't? They have yet to get serious and actually contact the T-Wolves, but for a deal to happen they would have to say sayonara to Keith, Kerry and Kenyon just to match salaries. Sixers rookie threw out the ceremonial first pitch yesterday at the Phillies-Giants game. We just thought you ought to know. Formerly best buds DMX and Ja Rule now have some serious beef with one another. Said X of Ja, "I got some sh--, man. They trying to stop me from doing this song called 'Ruled Out.' Everybody in here don't want me to do it — they whining — but I'm gonna do it." We guess X doesn't like Ja cramping on his loud and throaty style.
