Nets Make offer for Robinson

Still lookinh for that Skydude button eh. But here’s the rumor.Um, well I’m not the same Basketball expert as I am at hockey, but I enjoy watching a game and am hoping being part of this site will raise my knowing Sporteology. Here’s what the San Francisco chronicle says:

“East Rutherford, N.J. — The NBA’s trade deadline isn’t until next month, but center Clifford Robinson has long been expecting his name to surface in discussions. It has in New Jersey.

The Nets have two trade exceptions worth $5 million and $10 million to use as bargaining chips, and have offered the former to Golden State in exchange for Robinson. Robinson has two years left on his contract and said the Warriors have told him they will not pick up their team option for 2005-06.

Given his contract status and veteran experience, Robinson said he appreciated his trade value, but won’t allow the talks to distract him. The 15- year pro played in 14 consecutive postseasons before being shipped to Golden State last year.

“I’m sure there are a lot of teams out there who probably think I would be a help to their team,” Robinson said. “That’s not a bad thing at all. It’s always nice to have options. I just do what I have to do for the rest of the year with this team, try to get us going.”

Injury update: The results of Jason Richardson’s MRI affirmed what the Warriors already knew: He has a sprained left ankle. That the injury is not more serious is good news for Richardson, who is antsy to return.

“It’s tough sitting out watching all (four) games, because I hate sitting out,” Richardson said. “But injuries happen. I think they’ve done a great job the last few games of just playing hard. Hopefully when I get back, we can pick up where we left off before I got hurt.

Meanwhile, forward Eduardo Najera had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Friday in San Francisco. Warriors officials said the procedure was largely maintenance-related and do not expect the surgery to delay his return from the injured list.

Welcome home: The Warriors headquartered in Manhattan before crossing over to the Meadowlands on Friday, allowing several players from the New York/New Jersey area to visit their families.

Rookie Luis Flores, an alum of Norman Thomas High School and Manhattan College, stopped by home for some of his mother’s famous chicken and rice. Long Island native and Hofstra graduate Speedy Claxton saw only his immediate family, adding that “I’m here on business.”

Forward Troy Murphy, the Warriors’ lone native of New Jersey, had about 20 to 25 supporters in the stands.

I hate the Nets so any deal that helps them is bad. The first and only NBA game I’ve ever attended, the Raptors beat the Nets. I spent the evening arguing with someone who worked at the ACC over who could yell “Nets Suck!” loudest. (Lousy green haired glactomite (invented word for moron) I WAS LOUDER!)
