Draft falling according to projections so far. I think Bulls got ripped in that trade. Better make it worth their while with 7 pick.

I think Bulls might take Malik Monk. They need shooting since they were 28th at shooting the three ball

Congrats Lakers. You just chose someone for president who has absolutely no idea what the hell he's doing. One look at Magic Johnson's twitter feed should've been enough to say he had no business being GM. Congrats on hiring him; the first thing he did was get rid of your best scoring player of the year for practically nothing to free up space to bring in PG next year. 

 

And now he's drafted Lonzo Ball. The one player in this draft who has the highest bust potential and the biggest question marks all over that ugly shooting form and various other issues. 

 

Enjoy the Kobe nostalgia, cause you won't be sniffing the WCF for another ten years. Magic is going to turn the dumpster fire into an even worse one.

Monk seems to be falling. Not sure where he ends up. There are questions about his defense, but I thought he'd already be gone.

Defense for a guard is big imo. Can't be one sided. I do think he will go in the next couple picks. Maybe to Charlotte.

The Butler trade was a shocker

Not entirely surprising. Bulls are rebuilding and Butler is their best asset. They want to avoid a PG situation, so they traded him now. He probably would have bolted if he played his contract out. I'm surprised they pick Lauri at #7 though.

Good God, yeah the Lakers should've just kept Russell and that stiff Mozgov's contract and drafted someone like Josh Jackson so they can go roughly win 21-26 games again. Lakers will be a Playoff team next year if they get PG and Ball will be a solid Pro. Your hate for Ball is ridiculous. Magic trading overrated D'Angelo Russell and freeing up Cap Space by getting rid of Jim Buss's dumb error signing Mozgov was an excellent trade. That trade got A's for the Lakers on almost every Basketball website. If you think Russell is better than Ball than I don't know what to tell you, I tried explaining this to Jules yesterday but of course you guys agree on everything as usual. Magic knows what he is doing and the Lakers days of going 20-62 every year with goofball Jim Buss and Russell running the team are over.

 

-Lopez is a Good Center to boot and will average close 20 points a game.

Ball is an elite passer. I think he'll be good. But yeah, he'll definitely make everyone on the Lakers better. PG alone will take that team to a 7th-8th seed. If they add more superstars, they can go further.

Yep they needed to move the Deng and Mozgoff contracts so they could afford two max contracts in 18....making room for Lebron and Pg.

How anyone doesn't understand what Magic is doing just doesn't understand Basketball and D'Angelo Russell had lousy Leadership, was a poor Defender, and the guy shot 40% from the field so his scoring efficiency wasn't even that good.

He may or may not. Cleveland is a mess right now, and there have been rumors swirling that Lebron is leaving for LA. It makes sense. He already won a title for the Cavs so I doubt loyalty is an issue. If the Cavs can't win next year, he has no reason in LA. For a superteam in LA, beat the Warriors, and win and easy finals against a weak Eastern team. You also have to wonder about PG's attitude. At first, he says he wants to stay, then he does a complete 180 within the span of 4 days. Players contact each other and he probably knows something... like Lebron going to LA.

Yep. Lakers fans were pretty high on him though. There were tons of questions about him, such as his mentality and his ability to get along with his teammates(see Nick Young). Magic freed up cap space and still gets his elite point guard.

LeBron is not going to the Western Conference. I have a better chance of dating Ariana Grande

Lebron has always wanted to play in LA. Might play with Clippers but he wants to. Has a home in LA. Has a studio in LA...and all his homeboys moved out to LA this past year to prepare for his arrival. Cleveland is done after 2018...Lebron is gone book it.

That trade made a ton of sense for the Lakers looking at the big picture. Russell wasn't taking that team no where.

A lot of Lakers fans couldn't stand him either because of the Nick Young incident and his lack of Leadership. He is arguably the worse Defender in the league as well.

After Boston finishes the next few years it won't be. Lebron always gets out once the going gets tough. He wants to live in LA. The reason the Chicago trade fell through is he wouldn't assure Butler he would stay. Sorry he ain't staying in Cleveland.

    • We made no attempt to re-sign Fischer or Glowinski. Ballard had faith in "his guys." Good job Ballard - Grigson would be so proud!
    • I wonder more why coaches continue to keep trying it when it's clear it isn't working. 
    • This team isn't going to win many games if the OL doesn't figure things out quickly.
    • Replace Pryor and Pinter and good things will happen.
    • The line has two problems.   1.  Pinter just isn’t good enough.  That’s a personal issue that I would be looking at if I was the Colts.  I would be thinking about trying Dennis Kelly or moving Pryor over to RG and letting Raimann play LT.  I will say there were a couple of plays where Pinter did hold his own vs Chris Jones but there are just too many plays where he gets turn styles or worse (see the play where he was turned into a speed bump for a sack).  Teams have figured out he’s the weak leak and are attacking accordingly.   2.  The issue Romo spot lighted today.  Communication.  Ryan is adjusting to a new offense and is having to think more than he normally does and because of that the Colts are having issues getting the protection schemes right.  Kelly gives the line their blocking assignments but Ryan gives the backs, tightends, and receivers theirs.  The best play to spotlight this was the play where KC sent five guys but both Taylor and Pryor went to block the same guy and no one picked up the guy coming inside of Pryor resulting in a free rusher on Ryan.  Romo seemed pretty confident Ryan is going to be just fine in about six weeks (which fits the patterns of offensive struggles the Colts have had under Reich at the start of the season with all the new QBs, Luck, Rivers, and Wentz all had the same adjustment period to being in a new system.).  So the good news is that should get better with time.  The really good news was that Ryan seemed like he was finally comfortable in the offense at the end of the game and the blocking was MUCH better.  Maybe it’s finally starting to click.
