Not too much going on in the world of links with All-star weekend upon us and no Pacers involved. However, the Carmelo Anthony saga seems to be building steam which should make for an interesting domino affect as it seems everyone else is waiting for this conclusion for other trades. There is a nice Larry Bird interview from Pacers.com, in which he gives no hints one way or the other if something will happen before the trade deadline.
