I just read on SI that the reason the Nets traded Carter is because the team is up for sale. Some Russian oligarch wants to buy the team. (H) Woohoo, just keep the team in Jersey, get rid of that POS Ratner, and I'm happy. We get to have our own Roman Abramovich. (H)

Yeah, but there's a salary cap in the NBA. Best you can hope for is that he signs LeBron for the Nets, and also signs LeBron as spokesman for Siberian Natural Gas (or whatever company he owns) for $100 million a year.

Forza Suarez! (ps brotha can you spare a dime?)
I know. Yeah, we can't build a super team, but this new owner will at least go over the luxury tax threshold to sign players, something Ratner won't do, because he's cheap. The oligarch won't be afraid to pay the luxury tax.

Starting XI
The knicks selecting forward Jordan Hill with the No. 8 overall pick before acquiring the 29th pick , guard Toney Douglas.



anyone can tell me about these two players the knicks drafted?? I wanted the knicks to draft steph curry but those f*cking warriors had to take our koolaid.
 
Yo Shifty - I know you're a lot more tuned into the draft. What was with Mills dropping so low? Down here the little basketball media that there is was expecting (or, more accurately, hoping) for a first round selection but I thought, at worst, he'd drop into early-40s. Was his last year of college that bad?

Orlando is going after Sheed, hmmm, well they get a legit power forward who's also a 3-point threat, moves Rashard back to the 3 spot so Turkey-Glue is most likely gone.

There were injury concerns, and beyond that I think some teams weren't sure if he's a pure point. This isn't the worst thing for Patty though, he can hone his game a little more somewhere else for a few years and then go to the NBA.

You think soo? How do you think the Nets will fare without VC?

I can safely say that the better team is east of the Hudson from now on (H)

Who cares how we do without VC, we're getting Lebron. (H)

The Nets will find a way to have a better season than the Knicks.(H)

Both the Knicks and Nets are gonna suck so your argument sucks (H)

Pistons just moved and got Charlie V and Gordon. I don't know if that makes them a contender again.

I don't think so. They're still ****ed at point guard, and Charlie V isn't really a post presence.

Turkoglu rejects Portland's 5 years and $50M for Toronto's 5 years and $56M :O Parker, Marion and Delfino pretty much gone to ensure cap space for the deal to happen, we are in desperate need of a 2-guard and some depth off the bench.

Reports are stating that he's going to be starting, which I don't really mind. Maybe he'll blow us away in his first season. Probably not.

jennings is going to be one of the few stars coming out of this draft...but i'm not going to feel bad for him if he fails
