San Antonio Express-News

Wondering why the Nuggets have backslid since making the Allen Iverson trade (other than the suspension of Carmelo Anthony)? Since the trade, Iverson, Anthony and Marcus Camby have played together in only five games. ... Scott Skiles has stopped playing Ben Wallace down the stretch in close games and Wallace doesn't seem to mind much. Big Ben's first game back in Detroit is Feb. 25, though. You'd better believe he won't want to be on the bench at crunch time. ... Finally, Darko Milicic is a starter, and never mind that it took a broken thumb by Tony Battie before it happened. The No. 2 pick in the 2003 draft class scored 21 in the Magic's final pre-All-Star contest. Maybe Milicic has upside after all. ... In case you hadn't noticed: Pistons' record at All-Star break, 32-19, is same mark they had in 2005, when they pushed the Spurs to the limit in the Finals. ... In case you hadn't noticed, Part II: Jazz arrived at break at 35-17, tying the franchise record for most victories at the break. Remember, Jazz twice went to NBA Finals and had the best record in the West. ... Blazers' Zach Randolph, averaging 24 points and 10 rebounds, said he was disappointed David Stern didn't use one of his four injury additions to put him in the All-Star Game. Maybe Stern heard Magic TV analyst and former head coach Matty Guokas call Randolph a "lollygagger" on defense. ... Lots of teams are looking for a point guard as the trade deadline approaches, but Sixers GM Billy King warns all callers inquiring about Andre Miller things will be brief. King told Philly beat writers Miller won't be traded. Period. Asked why, he responded: "Because I like him." So there. ... Best center in the West before Yao Ming returns? Try Tyson Chandler . The Hornets' center has 61 rebounds in his last three games, including a team-record 23 on Tuesday. ... Las Vegas is chock full of great restaurants, but the most discerning of NBA palates belongs to Magic assistant GM Dave Twardzik, with whom I shared a fine culinary experience Friday afternoon: Double-doubles at In-N-Out burger. If you've never had one, you haven't lived. ... Don't expect to see much of Sean May in Bobcats games after the break, not after Bernie Bickerstaff called him out last week. In essence, Bickerstaff said May just wasn't tough enough to play through recurring pain in his right knee. Comparing May to Raymond Felton, who is playing on an ankle that throbs most of the time, Bickerstaff said, "It's a mental toughness thing." Ouch.

If this is true about Bernie's feelings on Sean May, why did they trade us Ely? Makes no sense?
