Bad News: Peter Vecsey Says You're FiredS

Does New York Post NBA tracker Peter Vecesy know something you don't? It wasn't even lunchtime today before he had already predicted the imminent demise of two NBA careers.

The always talkative "sources" tell Peter that the Suns are a disaster—which everyone already knew—and that changes are afoot. He claims that Amare Stoudemire will be traded for pennies on the dollar before next Thursday's deadline (not a stretch), but then buries deep in his story the rumor that coach Terry Porter will be fired and replaced by GM Steve Kerr, because all general managers make great coaches, right?

But he doesn't stop there! Vecsey is also reporting that Bulls GM John Paxson—who apparently can't coach well enough—will resign once the trading deadline passes. (Because you want the incompetent guy wheeling and dealing until the last possible moment?) On this story at least, there is a counter-theory from someone with an actual name—Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf, who was quoted on Sports Center as saying:

"Pete Vecesy is not a credible enough source to comment on. Two weeks ago he had John being fired, now he has him resigning."

All right then. So will anything this guy says turn out to be true? And is anyone rooting for Jerry Reinsdorf to be vindicated?
