    Seems like a good time to start one with the draft around the corner.

    Lakers already made a big splash with the Davis deal. What will Leonard do? Is the Warriors run over?

    Carry on.

    If KD and Klay are going to be non-factors for most or all of the season, you gotta figure the Warriors will be out of the picture. (Although if the players recover well, they'd be contenders again in 20-21.)
    The Lakers have to get another piece to grab a ring during their LeBron window. With the hard miles on his body, when he loses it, it'll all go at once.

    One thing is clear from the growing injury list: the 2020 Olympic Team is going to be a complete changing of the guard. None of those guys coming off major injuries will play, nor will LeBron, with his nagging aches and pains.

    The Conley trade to the Jazz is interesting.

    Rockets gotta let D’Antoni go, right? They are stuck with CP3 thanks to his contract and Harden ain’t going anywhere. Methinks Mike is odd man out.

    Bring in Ty Lue and he can make Harden hustle off the ball, which will make CP3 quit bitching.

    Does Ty Lue regret not taking the Lakers job now that they have AD? I’ll bet he does.

    The Rockets are so stupid. They gave CP all the money he wanted at the age of 33, and he immediately showed major signs of aging. Now they’re likely stuck with him during Harden’s prime.

    I'm a draft geek
    But the NHL is much smarter about its draft than the NBA
    When trades are made in the NHL, they are immediate
    The NBA makes trades, but pretends they aren't official until July 6
    There's no reason the NBA can't get its salary cap set if the NHL can

    If the Lakers were offering him three years instead of five, he may not.

    The Rockets went all-in to get over on Golden State with the target zone being the first two years of the deal. They knew that the back half of that contract was going to be suboptimal, but I don't think they had a deep appreciation of just how sub-sub-suboptimal it would be. He has always been a pain in the ass to play with and that isn't going to get better, either.

    Of course that will be used, multiple, multiple times.

    Watching Bob Ryan trying to opine on the NBA Draft is high comedy.

    No, Bob, the players are not interchangeable between 4 and 30, you old windbag.
