    I've had my fill of centers coming here to hone their skills and leave. It wouldn't surprise me if we took Embiid though. Especially considering that our front office was groomed in S.A.

    That's the NBA way. I think the Celtics will be the one getting the first pick because it would be less obvious than the Lakers.

    Freakin Cleveland with the #1 pick, AGAIN. That is 3 out of the last 4 years. They had like a 1.7% chance of getting the 1st pick... and what do u know. Gilbert must have some dirt on David Stern / Adam Silver... guy also helped to veto the Chris Paul to the Lakers trade. Fcck Cleveland.

    The NBA draft lottery is the stupidest idea.

    That was so painful to watch. Can't they have the GMs at the podiums instead of making some random owner daughters that look completely out of their element?

    The Bucks daughter. Jeez...like ya know...positive vibes and umm like...good luck?

    My sinister plan worked...

    I figured that by predicting LA and Boston's picks would be in the top 3 ,,, I would actually reverse jinx that crap. I'm gonna go ahead and take credit for it working. LOL


    My Magic still got jobed. We tanked for 2 straight years for the #4 pick. What a freaking plan that was.

    What a game last night as the Heat beat the Spurs in San Antonio. Lebron showed up big time last night as he reminded me of Kobe Bryant. I didn't count how many times the Spurs fell down trying to win calls from the ref's, but it didn't work. The heat look like they can win 3 in a row. first team since the Lakers from 200-2003.

    I'm not a fan of either team, but I'm hoping the Spurs win the Finals. I'd like to see Duncan and those guys get another ring before they retire. LeBron and the Heat just bother me.

    I would like to see Lebron win as many titles as Kobe or Jordon, he's a incredible athlete. I have a feeling that the age of the spurs is not favoring them at this time. The Spurs sure do pass the ball very well though, so it is a good finals to watch. The spurs have had a nice run with duncan, I agree he does deserve another title. But having duncan in the game at the end actually hurt the Spurs. They can draw him away from the basket then beat him easily on cross overs which Bosh did. Curious to see what Pop does to counter that.

    Spurs could put it away tonight! Curious to see how Miami responds.

    In order to do that he is going to have to get to 9 more Finals since he loses 60% of the time.

    Sorry I am from CLE and still have a tiny bit of lingering LeBron distaste. I'm close to forgiving him though.......once he has paid his penance that is.

    I think I would pick Kobe in his prime over LeBron in his prime, because Kobe has that killer instinct that LeBron lacks. LeBron is probably more physically gifted than even Jordan, but he seems to lack that killer instinct.

    I also think the idea of a big 3 is terribly flawed. The Spurs showed team basketball is how you win. Team offense with passing and movement is far better than isolation, clearing out for your star player. The Spurs brand of basketball is fun to watch. Hope other teams emulate it.

    I really enjoyed watching the heat getting totally throttled in these finals.

    What a TEAM the Spurs have. Awesome!

    I know what you mean. Here in Orlando we hired directly from the Spurs when we cleaned house in the front office and coaching staff. We are constantly being told that this process will take time... Ahhhhhh. Anyway, I'm certainly hoping to see TEAM Ball here too.

    It should have opened some eyes around the league if nothing else.

    If you like basketball but dislike the nba, you would love watching the Spurs play. Such a throwback team.

    Congrats ROC! They're not my team, but I love a good NBA series, and the Spurs are a class team from top to bottom. It was a pleasure watching them dismantle the Heat. Kicked their ass old-school!!
