The Everyday Mailbag- 1/25/11

America has questions, and I have answers. Here's what America wants to know!

Q: Where is Carmelo Anthony going now?
-Johanna M., Clarksville, TN

A: It wouldn't surprise me if he still went to New Jersey, but one option is Houston. He would be traded there for the rest of the season in exchange for expiring contracts ( Yao Ming, Shane Battier) and either 1st round picks or talent ( Jordan Hill). New York is still an option, but they know Carmelo wants to come there, so I think they would be inclined to wait until the season is over and sign him then. If they do that, they keep their pieces intact and just add to their pieces with Melo. Remember, the Knicks are the only team that has salary cap room to add a superstar next year and not have to move anyone to do it. He could also remain in Denver the rest of the year and go nowhere as well.

Q: What do you think of Dejuan Blair of San Antonio? Pretty good sleeper in the NBA?
-Kareem H., Nashville, TN

A: I think he was a great find by the San Antonio Spurs. He lack prototypical height for a big man( 6'7"), but he makes up for it with his width and with his unusually-long arms. His arms alow him to finish inside over bigger defenders. With that being said, for him to be able to continue to produce, he must get a consistent 15-20 foot jump shot so he can pull bigger defenders out on the floor and use his quickness more. With that being said, because of his lack of size and lack of a consistent jump shot, his size inside hurts him when he goes against Bynum (7'1"), Gasol (7'0") and Odom ( 6'10").

Q: So what are your thoughts on Jay Cutler?
-Adrienne H., Atlanta, GA

A: I think that he had an injury. The extent of the injury, I don't know, but if I'm injured, I really don't think I would be jumping around on the sideline. But when your injured, your injured and he would know his body better than anyone. And in regards to everyone ripping him, if you don't have all the facts, then why are you talking? Get the facts and then talk.

Q: Regardless of the outcome of the Super Bowl, what have you learned from this NFL season?
-Kareem H., Nashville, TN

A: I learned that anything is possible and that home-field advantage doesn't mean anything in the playoffs anymore. One of the thoughts I always thought to be true was validated though. Defense wins championships.
