    Iguodala to LA for Lamar + Luke would be absolutely insane on LA's part.

    Speaking of insane...

    Would Igoudala come off the bench though? Andre is a triple-double waiting to happen every night as long as he is healthy. LA would lose length too, not sure how that would work out for LA. Then again it gets rid of Walton so if I were Buss, It'll be mighty tempting.

    Lord, I hope the 6ers aren't dumb enough to make that trade.

    LOL man you really dislike Walton! [​IMG]

    No way Iggy comes off the bench. He is an excellent player and his energy would be good with Kobe, but I don't get what he would replace; he's not the PG or the C they need. Losing Lamar would hurt, also in the sense that they lose a guy that they could use going after Howard, Paul or DWill.

    Wow, if the Lakers could pull off Blake + picks for Felton that would be great. I doubt Denver would do that though.

    Cavs pick Irving, which could have been the Clippers' new starting PG. [​IMG]

    Wolves pick Williams. They just love stock-piling don't they? First with all the PGs (Flynn, Rubio, Ellington, Telfair, Ridnour) and now all these Forwards (Williams, Love, Beasley, Tolliver). [​IMG] Jazz picks Canter for 3rd. Will be battling with Favors for position along with Milsap? Cavs picks Thompson for their 4th pick. I think they should have picked a center, they already got Hickson and Varejao (can include Jamison here too) in a PF log jam.

    Won't Kanter be playing C, and Jefferson can then play some PF?

    Wow, Tristan Thompson #4 is a surprise.

    I guess Kanter can be their center but if you move Jefferson to SF then Milsap will be in limbo, you certainly can't bench him. I feel that they need more help in the SG/SF positions, all they have is Kirilenko, Hayward (inexperienced) and Bell (old & injury prone). Raptors got Jonas in their 5th pick, who I would have picked if I were the Cavs. Wizards pick Vesely for 6th pick. Ok pick I guess. Good bigs with Blatche and McGeenius. Let's see who Jordan picks to be the next bottom feeder and laughing stock of the league. [​IMG] He's done well in that trade so far today though. Biyombo goes 7th as expected. Decent pick outside of his contractual problems like Rubio had. Knight to Pistons in the 8th. The teams a mess and I am not sure this duded future in this team. Kemba to Bobcats in the 9th. I sure hope you know what you're doing MJ. Kemba and Biyombo are good picks but Agustin back to the bench? Bucks picks Jimmer in the 10th. I guess he'll be an SG next to Jennings? NVM, he's going to the Kings.

    Brandon Knight looked really unhappy.

    I think Charlotte has done well. Maybe trade Agustin?

    Jimmer won't be with Jennings, he'll be Tyreke's SG in SAC (Anaheim in the future?).
    This talk of him not playing D at BYU to "save him" on O is BS, though; he averaged something like 1.3 fouls last year.

    Mychal Thompson is so annoying.

    How about changing it to "I'm Sorry JJ". That would be a step toward his new apparent goal.

    K Thompson picked 11th by the Warriors. More 3pt shooters? Ellis might be on his way out while his value is still high.

    Burks picked by the Jazz in the 12th. Finally some scoring and in the SG position too.

    Jesus, that LO for Iggy trade is such a joke. Sure, a lower Lakers fans:Kardashians ratio at Staples but...

    The only benefit I see out of it, aside from defense from Iggy, is that LO could go back to his pre-sixth man seasons of showing up every month or so. Otherwise, we lose length, scoring, Kardashians, Luke... Wait, am I for this or against this?

    LA would lose the ugly Kardashian anyways so that's fine. And the twins got picked back to back. [​IMG] Pacers takes Kawhi as their 15th, I guess he'll make a good back up for Hansborough?

    The twins' mother was very cool, very classy. Awesome for the twins to go back-to-back.

    I think Kawhi Leonard is going to be a damned good player.

    I wonder if Ellis might be out at GS if they get a good offer; Mark Jackson didn't really answer JVG's question, did he???

    Vucevic? I think that's too high.

    Damn, the Knicks fans are pissed off at every draft it seems. [​IMG]
