    Well as expected Portland drafted Oden.

    What surprised me was how the Sonics did. First go with the obvious number 2 with Kevin Durant. And then they shipped Ray Allen off to Boston in exchange for Wally Sczerbiak, Delonte West AND Boston's number 5 pick! The Celtics picked Jeff Green.

    So basically in one fell swoop the Sonics existing roster is getting blown apart, but the hopefully Durant can bring the swagger back to Seattle (and not Oklahoma City :mad  )

    Lewis is probably gone through free agency as well. I'm still trying to get past the idea that Allen is gone. Though, I don't think it'll be as hard to swallow as when Payton got traded.

    Boston got a good deal. Pierce got what he wanted.

    Great to see Ohio State players get drafted so high, 3 freshmen all first round. Glad to see Oden go first, amazed Conley didn't go third though.

    I am pissed to see Chicago pick up shit with their top pick. I won't even say the guys name cause he sucks so much.

    I was surprised to say the least. It looks like the Wolves/Celtics trade dance is over.

    Although a Peirce/Allen/KG team would be pretty crazy to watch.

    He was kind of the dark horse in the draft. Many mock drafts didn't know where to put him. I saw anywhere from 5th to 12th. I would take a chance on him. He plays like Dirk.

    whut?

    no wai!

    hes very springy. all ive seen so far are dunks, running, more dunks, and then some more dunks.

    at best he'll be a more athletic pau gasol, w/o the back to basket moves.

    I've heard comparisons to Dirk, Kukoc, KG, and Pau.

    I think Kukoc could be right on, but it's a bit conservative. KG is much more of a defensive player than Yi will ever be. But one thing is common, they are big dudes with more of a finesse type game.

    I don't know what to think of the Zach Randolph trade. They got rid of a talented, but troublesome player. but they got Steve Francis :(

    Portland ended up with 6x new players....hopefully they wont suck as bad as the past season...and maybe actually make it to the Playoffs the coming season,
