thats what i mentioned before... i have a feeling sterns last legacy is handing the bulls/lakers/celtics a top 3 pick. then Silver takes over as commissioner and then implements the draft wheel and abolishes the draft lottery.

don't sleep on the raptors getting wiggins and cementing the popularity of nba in Canada. with the international focus of the league, this would be a pretty good strategic move....although the raptors aren't exactly cooperating these days

I'll never be a Raptor fan as long as Drake is associated with them uhoh.gif

short answer: no.
Hey at least you're about to turn Gasol into Bynum! Help is on the way!

That's the funniest trade report I've heard in awhile

Raptors will win the title this year

Just the thought of it makes me feel dirty

Remarkable how well that Rudy gay trade worked out. Raptors are a different team; one of the hottest in the league having beaten pacers, okc, dal. The trade has also worked for the kings: Isaiah and Demarcus are both putting better numbers alongside gay, Isaiah now has all the minutes he can handle and mature into a top PG, and best of all we still suck continue to suck in the western conference while at least making it competitive. Love the western conference where you can play better and grow as a team, still get your asses kicked and possibly end up with good lottery pick.

No wonder they're suffering so many injuries when they're constantly getting beaten up like this:

Tell me about it.  I'm from his hometown of Plainsboro, NJ.  He went to my high school for a year before he transferred to Solebury and then St. Joe's.  Dude was the pride of our town, but he was always a bit of a weird one.  You would see him during lunchtime trading Pokémon cards with all the nerds in the cafeteria.  From what I've heard, he reads novels by Tolstoy, as well.  He seems like a bit of a renaissance man, but then you see that crazy hairstyle and then you just think he's a schizophrenic.  I feel really bad about his injury history and I hope he can come back and play at a high level, but if it's not the knee that's stopping him, it's his maturity...

 

In other news, Iso-Joe doing his thing again.

Seriously!? That's awesome. Everytime I see Bynum he's always struck me as a guy who played because he was tall and good at it and not because he particularly enjoyed it.
