I don't see why Prokhorov has to attend every game in person. He hired a GM to run the basketball operations for a reason. Prokhorov has a full-time job in his other business ventures. The Nets is merely another business investment to him.

Probably not a trade the C's would make as they have a bunch of young F's on their roster already. They're in desperate need for a legit C. They've been playing Sullinger and Humphries at the 5 this preseason.

Personally I would take Yadier over Posey, but I don't have a problem with others put him #1. He's right up here as far as I'm concerned. Is Mauer included in those numbers? Does he still play most of his games at Catcher?

The players should focus on winning a championship, not whose team is going to own the city.

not anymore, but his bat is still better than a lot of the scrubs that the Yankees have been trotting out recently.

Pitching hasn't been the problem for them. They have a team ERA of 3.68 which is tied for 2nd best in the AL. And they have David Phelps and Michael Pineda coming back in August. So they have more SPs then they have spots for. Hitting is by far their biggest problem as they rank 12th in runs scored and 2nd to last in OPS.

These are the only trades the Yankees can make if they don't want to give up anything. No one is going to trade you a good young player with a reasonable contract for nothing.

That may not be a bad strategy actually because if you're defending LeBron you want him to take jump shots instead of driving to the hoops. I believe in the finals he had the lowest shooting percentage when Boris Diaw was guarding him.

I don't disagree with that, but I would not be shocked to see yet another professional athlete choose money over winning.

Deng would be attractive to somebody because of his expiring contract. Plus he can actually play.

I would like to see West back with the Pacers as well, but it remains to be seen whether he'll bolt for more money.

We don't know what the Bulls and Pacers will look like next year yet. There's no guarantee that Pacers can resign West and for the Bulls there have been rumors of trades involving both Boozer and Deng.

I like this trade for the Sixers long-term. As good of a young PG as Holiday is, the sixers aren't going anywhere with him as their franchise player. They get a big man back who until last night was #1 on most people's draft board. They also get a future 1st round pick which will probably be in the middle of the draft since it's lottery protected. Lastly, they will suck next year which puts them in position to win the lottery to one of the deepest drafts in years.

Shawn Bradley?

I also think that this year's draft class is very weak, which is why he's ranked so high. Every prospect has weaknesses. I just think that for a #1 ranked prospect he's got more uncertainties and negatives than others in previous years. Also, having watched just about every game he's played in this year before he got hurt, there's just something about his game that I don't feel translates well in the NBA unless he's in the perfect system.

I guess we'll just wait and see, but if I'm betting man I would not put my money on him being the next great NBA center.

Ibaka was picked 24th. So it wasn't a risky gamble. Would you spend a #1 pick on someone who project to be the next Serge Ibaka?
Posted Friday May 24, 2013, About: Howard considering five teams
Yes, but if you just need a big body, you can find one from the scrap pile like the Heat did with Chris Andersen. If the Cavs are taking Noel because they believe in his potential and think he can be a franchise center, I have no problem with that. But if they're taking him solely because of his size, I think that's a mistake.
Posted Friday May 24, 2013, About: Howard considering five teams
It's not, but I do worry how he's going to hold up banging bodies in the NBA for 82 games a year. And if the Cavs take him, he's going to be playing a bunch of those games against the Bulls and Pacers. I guess we'll just have to wait and see, but personally I'm not as high on him as others.

It also depends how early these bigs come into the NBA. Guys like Ewing, Olajuwon, Duncan, Robinson, and Shaq all came into the NBA having played college ball for at least 3 years. They were all good in the NBA immediately.
Posted Friday May 24, 2013, About: Howard considering five teams
I agree. Noel is going #1 purely on potential. He's going to be a project that takes a couple years to develop. He could also become a total bust like Greg Oden. A #1 pick shouldn't have this much risk and uncertainty involved. If I were the Cavs I would try to trade the pick and stock up on some more future draft picks. Next year's draft class is going to be far superior to this year's.

Don't forget also that Lillard played 4 years of college ball. It shouldn't be that surprising that Lillard is further along in his development. AD just turned 20 last month. Let's wait 5 years and see how these two turn out. I think both will be very good players in the league.

Don't just look at the height. The wingspan is what scouts are looking more at now. Davis may only be 6'10" but he's got a wingspan of 7'4", which is comparable to a lot of 7-footers out there.
