    Basically people are claiming that Shabazz is selfish and thinks he is already a superstar. I imagine some of that comes from just being the best, in the NBA he won't be the best anymore and that will help him a lot. He wants to win, anyone who has ever talked to or watched him will tell you as much. Therefore, he will work hard to get better. Will he put in the amazing effort Lebron and Kobe make, who knows but if he does he will be a star.

    "I misinterpreted the rules" (said in Cartman's Edward James Olmos accent).


    Cheating is pretty American... But I still don't believe in tanking. I do believe in building through the draft though, and that player development is more important than winning during a rebuild. However, Orlando's plan hasn't panned out yet, and there's no guarantee it will.


    Portland is much better equipped to rebuild the OKC way. They drafted Durant, Westbrook, Harden, and made deals here and there to bolster their roster. We drafted LaMarcus, Nic, and Damian so far, and we should start looking into moves and deals to fill the roster. There's no reason for Portland to go the Orlando route and dump its best player to gamble for some prospects.

    It depends on the return the Nuggets got better right away after deal Carmelo if we can get a nice package like that then we have to consider the trade.

    Orlando ?? ORLANDO ???
    Heck, it's easy for fans to have a stinky basketball team in Orlando. The city rests on a tropical beach and if you get bored you can jolt over to 6 Flags or how about Disneyworld?

    In Portland when we have a stinky basketball team, there's not much to take your mind off things, except cold rain and video games. Personally, I'd rather sit on a tropical beach and play video games.

    ORLANDO ???

    Yeah sorry man, but if I'm an Orlando fan I'm looking forward for 5 years down the line, especially for the development of Tobias Harris and Mo Harkless, both could breakout, but I'm more excited to see Tobias Harris.

    I would agree Harris seems more dynamic but Harkless looks pretty good as well.

    A bit of both sure. But mainly luck. And I don't think we should go their way. They still ended up with the worst record.

    Well looks like Noel wont be there, Lets see what Hennigan does with the number 2 pick. Cmeese, what would you do if you had the number 2 pick (as Orlando Gm)

    I would trade the pick, the team is in rebuild mode and I am not sure Burke is the guy I really want on my team. Since my team needs a PG a PF and maybe a SG depending on how they feel about Afflalo still. 


    Boston needs to get younger, maybe they really love Burke, Oladipo, McClemore, Porter, or Bennett. If they do then we could try and swing a deal for Rajon Rondo. 


    The Clippers are another interesting option because they have Eric Bledsoe, if you could find a third team like the Blazers who are interested in Jordan than the deal could be quite sweet. Keep Bledsoe, Blazers pick 10 and Clippers pick 25. That would be a great return on investment. From there if they could manage to turn their remaining pieces and picks into Oladipo and Bennett they would be in great shape. Really a lot of possibilities.

    Hey there's no guarantee Noel will go 1st. If I'm the Cavs I would definitely consider trading down.

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
