    Q: Ira, $12 million for Mario Chalmers! Is Pat Riley on drugs? — Hunter. A: I don't think he is, but some of those pictures in his early NBA days make you wonder if he wasn't hanging out with a few who were. Look, you have to consider the market,...
  • ASK IRA: Can the Heat land Chauncey Billups?

     
    Q: After reading Chauncey's comments, I'm convinced he'd rather sit out the year than play somewhere he doesn't want to be. Do you think those teams under the cap will heed his warnings? — Eddy. A: I think the league, especially the small-market...
