    Seems good, assuming Kobe can come back for next season. That's a big assumption.

    The Lakers are the high school kid who buys a bag of oregano thinking it's real, smokes it, acts high, then gets all pissed when someone tells him it was fake.

    I don't entirely agree, but want to acknowledge that this is nevertheless really funny. :fonz:

    there was an ESPN Boston article today about Reggie Lewis. He was my favorite celtic.

    I remember watching this year's finals and it was great to see Kawhi Leonard a player so similar to Reggie. 6'7" late draft pick, low key, great defense and rebounding, and a sneaky good offensive game. Plus the reports on Leonard is that he worked his game into that, in the shadows of the greats (just like reggie around bird, DJ, Mchale, Parrish).

    I can't believe that Reggie died more than 20 years ago. I got his autograph in a mall when I saw reggie, chris ford, and rick fox there.

    I wish Boston would trade Rondo for Lin and Asik, not sure if that works under CBA. Rondo will be too much to handle for that college coach and they are rebuilding, why stick rondo with that. A front line of Olyniyk, Asik and Green with Lin and a good outside shooter would be a nice young lineup that would listen to a college coach. And for Houston, who better than Rondo to control Harden/Howard from ball hogging.

    Rondo's a superstar. Top five guards in the league. I'd expect more for him..

    when rondo's motivated he can win a game all by himself.... even against a a full strength miami squad. but its true that point guards can be overvalued. especially non shooting PGs. thats the way things go though - just like centers all star point guards will be overvalued.

    that plus he's got an incredibly team friendly contract that ends in two years. john wall (another jump shooting anemic PG) is about to get 80 million. now thats an overpay.

    looks like detroit really is bankrupt. the city of detroit that is.

    but there has been a trickle down effect... there are season ticket packages for $299! thats the whole damn season 41 home games for less than $300!

    its outside of the lottery. take it this way of the 2011 draftees he's about the 2nd best player out of that draft so far. go ahead and look over the other players chosen above him... its a pupu platter other than the #1 pick of Irving.

    reggie lewis was a 22nd pick (of a deep 1987 draft) . they are both draft steals.

    not sure I would say he is 2nd best, but he is top five. Some strong players late in that draft.

    But of course :)

    These guys were picked after Leonard:

    Kenneth Faried
    Chandler Parsons
    Klay Thompson
    Nikola Vucevic

    I think Vucevic is the biggest steal and really no hype around the guy at all. Outside of Orlando I think maybe 2 people may have heard of him.

    so Warriors won their first championship - summer league, but i guess it counts :lol:

    didn't catch any of the games, but Ben Mclemore looks like he really sucked against inferior comp. not a good sign for the only 2013 draftee that I think has a shot at being an all star
