That german guard, shroeder, really is a rondo clone, he is one to watch. Of course, I would be remiss if I did not mention Hardaway Jr. for the Knicks, I think he will be a 15+ point a game scorer once he settles into the league and he should be a very good wing defender.

I don't think this is a sleeper draft. I don't see more than 2 or 3 guys panning out. Its a good draft for Euro leagues, since most of these guys will be over there in a year or 2.

Really disappointed in the McLemore kid. He oozes entitlement and bad attitude. Him and D Cousins together? Ha ha, that should be interesting. He was already whining about the intensity of the new coaches practices.

Doubt lebron is gonna take his talents to LA and is meLo to LA even that good of an idea for the team? 2 ball hoggers

 

The Pacers hold the power to keep Paul George with the Blue and Gold. Not just because the situation seemingly fits him perfectly, but also because they have “Bird Rights” on George, as outlined in the Collective Bargaining Agreement. It looks like they will sign him to an extension before October 31 ala John Wall. If the Pacers, Bulls, or Nets knock the Heat out of the finals, LBJ could pack his bags for LA LA Land for the final contract.

It is interesting to me that David Stern literally killed the Lakers when he rescinded the Chris Paul trade. But as long as LA has a premier team (Clippers) there is little incentive for the league to provide any help to the Lakers. Hey they sold their future for their last championship so let them try to draft prospects and develop them like the other teams do...

they'll be in the playoffs and may have a better record than last year. but not much more than that.

 

What a difference a year makes... My guess is that Kobe will have a difficult time regaining the prior level of performance that he had prior to the injury. Not sure how much he has left in the tank, but if he could not do it with the team last year, it certainly looks more difficult for the next season. 

 

Looking forward to a great season, should be interesting...

If Lebron leaves Miami, it will be for a contender and LA is not a contender, at least not with the current roster.

 

Stern didn't kill the Lakers with the CP thing. When the Lakers landed Howard&Nash, everyone was all happy and a lot of ppl had them going all the way to the finals but obviously that didn't work out so well

simply put: what killed the lakers last year was an extraordinary amount of injuries ... that plus the complete lack of any kind of team gel. but that happens when you're constantly shuffling lineups.

Houston Rockets forward Terrence Jones was arrested in Portland early Wednesday morning and charged with harassment after yelling at a homeless man and stomping on his leg. Wacky!

No off season camp for the new coach too, they started to get better at the end but then Kobe went down.

i read that knews quickly so for a second I thought jones was the homeless man. kicking someone on teh ground is pretty effective way of saying no when your occupied on the phone

New Orleans Pelicans revealed their new uniforms today. The font for "New Orleans" is way too small. Also, it doesn't look like any of the uniforms say "Pelicans." Why would you change your team's name and then not put that brand new name on your jerseys?

Because the logo is already branded on their franchise players forehead.

Oden signs with Heat.

I wish him the best but 4 years out of the league, it will take him a whole season just to get his body in NBA shape and to get his timing back, assuming he doesn't sustain any big injuries. I think best case scenario is the Heat squeeze 10-15 minutes a game out of him and he gets 4-6 points, 3-4 rebounds.

its remarkable how many high caliber teams, and the Kings, pursued a guy whos been out of the league for that long. really hoping he can squeeze out a serviceable career. he still has a chance to outperform many other #1 draft picks
