im still staying confident and following my gut that raptors will have the second pick and cavs will get the first.
i just feel like the NBA will pick cleavland as no.1 and toronto as no.2. both teams we raped by their best players this year. its clear to me ( if u dont choose to agree then dont) that this miami thing was prearranged and was definetly planned out again this is only my opinion. the nba didint look into the curruption but its not hard to see something fishy happend. IMO the nba is slightly rigged like alot of other things in life. thats why i think the nba will help these 2 franchses out because they were screwed.

Miami could have definitely been called out for tampering but what can you do, I guess.
I fully expect the raps to fall in the draft to like 5 or 6.
Keep in mind the league in no shape or form has EVER helped this team out, dating back to the original draft. So yeah I wouldnt expect much.
no offense but we don't need anymore soft white guys on this team, if we don't get a top derrick williams then i'm trading the pick for a sf that can score

What's with the "soft white guys" comment? Would they really be any better if they were "soft black guys"? I would say we only have one truly soft guy on this team anyways, he wears #7. If you consider Calderon white, then he and Kleiza are much "harder" than just about the whole team, minus Joey, Reggie and JJ.

i think what knickz means to say is he doesnt know what racism means. therefore his comment is not racist... or am i missing something?
also whenever people say " im not racist" it means theyre racist... if somone was not racist they dont need to explain to others theyre not racist. IMO of course.
you might be better off deleting your "white guy" comment now. that stuffs not cool .

I feel like the #1 and #2 picks are pretty set at this point. it looks like whoever selects 1st will take irving and 2nd pick will take williams. everyone seems to thin that the next player taken will be a C in either Kanter or Val. all 4 of the players have been dissucssed to death at this point so id like to bring up a player who has been forgoten.
i metioned this in the "draft thread" but the only 2 players in the draft that i see as BC material are williams and knight. both are athletic players with the will to improove, good leaders, good attitude, and both player multiple possitions.
also knight was the best pg in thee nation comming out of high school, he played for kentucky and made it to the ncaa finals.
If we dont get a high enough pick ( 1 or 2 / - irving or williams) we should strongly consider knight with the 3rd pick. Knight is listed as the 2nd best pg in the draft after irving ( who didint even play) PG's are a must have in the NBA and i ihnk knight could turn into a very solid PG. many have said he is more of a SG buth i think he would have no problem playing a pg. plus if he can play both he can be a good pairing with bayless.

Thing is, I could totally see Cleveland (if in fact drafting first) taking Williams and then Knight/Kemba with the Clippers pick. If we can somehow get the second pick we'd still be in play for Irving
One player that has really peaked my interest is Enes Kanter. My fear however is that he may not be big enough to play the five.

Thats like the last thing to worry about with Kanter
