Welcome back to another edition of "The Jay Byrd Show!" I know everyone is getting tired of deflate gate but I still have some fresh perspective on the topic that is worthy of discussion. Also I have to give the Gasol Brothers a little love for being named All Star Starters for the first time in NBA History. Plus, someone else in the NBA broke a record of their own last night and more on the Biggest boxing match that will never happen. All of this and more on this edition of "The Jay Byrd Show!"
The Pau Gasol-for-Andrew Bynum trade talks appear to be dormant but not dead.
The Lakers would like to get another worthy asset thrown into in the deal ... but so would the Cavs. And you know what? I have to side with the Cavs and general manager Chris Grant on this one.
By taking Gasol's $19.3 million salary off the Lakers' books, they will drop Los Angels below the luxury tax threshold, saving the Buss family in the area of $20 million. But that's only the start of it. The Lakers also will be under the tax next season, and that gets them out of danger of being subject to the dreaded repeater tax, which is levied against teams that exceed the tax threshold four times in five seasons.
So it's not just the current $20 million that the Cavs would be saving the Buss family, it is untold tens of millions more in two seasons when the Lakers figure to be a taxpaying team once again in the final season of Kobe Bryant's extension.
So multiply that $20 million by a factor of at least two -- probably more given the punitive nature of the repeater tax, and you get an idea of how valuable acquiring and waiving Bynum can be to the Buss family fortune.
Which is why if I am Chris Grant, I keep saying "no" to Los Angeles unless and until they throw Nick Young into the deal.
More on that trade, other trade chatter ... and a closer look at the struggling Memphis Grizzlies in this podcast with Three Shades of Blue radio on WHBQ radio in Memphis.

The Chicago Bears added two defensive ends to their roster on Tuesday. One of them may be a distraction to a team that had locker room issues last season. The Blackhawks bounced back from an ugly loss to the Dallas Stars over the weekend with a 3-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes Monday night, thanks to the continued strength of Corey Crawford in net. Jonathan Toews and Coach Joel Quenneville both hit career milestones with the win. The Bulls clinched a playoff spot with their over the Charlotte Hornets Monday night, with rookie Nikola Mirotic again leading the way with solid minutes off the bench. Joakim Noah has been playing the point-center position very well in Derrick Rose's absence. Should Tom Thibodeau think about using Noah to run the offense when Derrick returns? Plus, my bracket for the NCAA tournament is still alive, but certainly not perfect. I'll give a preview of two of the upcoming Sweet 16 matchups. All this and your phonecalls! (347) 327-9183.

The Chicago Bears have slowed their roll on the free agent market, which means increasing speculation regarding the upcoming NFL draft. What position do the Bears still desperately need? The Chicago Bulls meanwhile, have lost 5 of their last 6 and look utterly lost and hopeless without three of their key players. What can be done to salvage the season and their spot in the standings? The Blackhawks take on the New York Islanders tonight, having won two straight games where they finally got some production from their power play. Several players that had gone missing on the score sheet showed up. Can the Blackhawks keep it rolling without Patrick Kane? All this and your phone calls (347) 327-9183!

In a matter of hours, Chicago went from having two title-contending teams to...TBD, but it doesn't look good. Tonight I'm analyzing the impact that injuries to Derrick Rose and Patrick Kane will have on their respective teams, and where the Bulls and Blackhawks can go from here. Should the Bulls give up on Rose? Can the Blackhawks survive 12 weeks without Kane? Can either team bring in a player that comes close to replacing Chicago's stars? Which team can still make a playoff run? Times are tough for Chicago fans, but as they say in the theatre: the show must go on. I've got open phone lines for YOU! Call in @ (347) 327-9183 and give me your take on Chicago's Week From Hell.
