    What do you think of the draft so far? What are the Timberwolves doing drafting three point guards? Trades? Sixer draft Jrue Holiday. Does the kid got game? Post your thoughts on this years draft.

    Apparently the Knicks really really really want Ricky Rubio.

    I would actually love to find a way to get Harris and Lopez from the Nets. I'm pretty sure they would turn it down immediately, especially after the Carter deal, but I would give up Love, Rubio, expirings and future picks.

    We should have picked Lopez anyway, he fits better. Despite that I think Love and Lopez are pretty equal value.

    You guys don't need Lopez cause you have Jefferson. That guy is awesome and if he can stay healthy next season, along with Rubio and Love, I think you have a pretty good young team.

    This. It's hard to believe this kid went undrafted. He's one heck of player at Temple.

    I saw on CSN that they offered him to sign and join their summer league and said he agreed but I don't know if its official yet. He coming off the bench or replacing Willie Green either way it would be amazing for this team.

    If Miller walks we could use him for sure.

    <---huge unc fan.


    thought the draft went well for the unc players, even if they're going to minnesota. i don't have a favorite nba team, but i suppose i'll root for the pacers based solely on thats who hansborough will be playing for.

    I think Miller is going to walk but I wouldn't mind filling his spot with a Mike Bibby for a bit while Jrue matures

    I want the Sixers to pull the trigger for Ben Gordan.

    Rubio and his mother are cry babies complaining about the cold in Minneapolis, I got news for you Rick it can be just as cold in New York City as in Minneapolis in the winter, I hope if the wolves do trade him they get max value for him

    Which should be interesting. Basketball strategy aside, one of the things that made the Cav's such a cohesive unit was that they all were ready and willing to follow Lebron as a leader and as his friends. One thing I've always heard about Shaq is that he defers to NO ONE.

    He'll acknowledge Lebron as the man, but I still think his personality will conflict down the stretch, especially when Lebron sees firsthand the terrible work ethic he has just like Kobe and D-Wade saw.

    It will be as simple as: If you don't feed the Big Dawg enough attention, he won't guard the house.

    Good luck to you guys this season. It really is make or break for the Cav's in 2010.

    I was like wtf when they drafted a third PG. I thought they were hoarding them for trades, and they were. They traded Ty Lawson to the Nuggets for a future first round pick? Wtf? That was a lame trade. Wish the Cavs would've pulled that off instead of the Nugs.

    Jrue Holiday has got game. I think he will be a good NBA player.

    I disagree with all the hate on Tyler Hanborough. I think he will be able to get his side slinging junk off in the NBA. And he's a magnet for contact so I think that's gonna help cause he will be at the line. He will be a good PF in the league for a long time.

    They will love playing together. It will be one big giant happy family. :) 

    This is Lebron's team and that's the bottom line. I think LBJ will further mature and progress with Shaq around and it will be a good thing. Very excited actually. These guys are so loose and friendly with each other that I think Shaq will fit right in. We play the perfect style for Shaq too. Besides, we already have an amazing team that won 66 games this year without Shaq and we didn't have to give up anything to get him. So he's just gonna do his part and get'er done. Oh, and we didn't lose any flexibility for the 2010 off season. In fact, if the Shaq thing doesn't work for some god-forsaken reason, we can trade him at the trade deadline. Oh, AND Danny Ferry's not done. He said we are going to keep improving (ie. adding more good players).
