Yup.. sucks.  That's the player I wanted the Lakers to get.  Of course the Heat got him.  Lakers always pass up on these little awesome guards.   Napier is a baller!

I like our pick. Randle will be a walking double double every night.  A very solid, even if not sexy, pick.

Ya.. he should be solid.  A little nervous about his foot problems.. but he should be a solid player that makes a difference right away.  Still like those little guards to go up against CP3 and Lillard and all the rest of those solid small guards in the West.

Lakers are gonna be fucked again this season I think.. Hopefully they get Bledsoe at least.  He's a baller and exciting to watch.

Also, I hear Lebron might decide tonight.  His ass should go back to the Cavs.   Bosh needs to go to Houston with Parsons, Hardon, Howard and Bosh.. that's a huge 4 if you ask me.

Lebron back to Cavs.   Can't wait to see how many Heat fans are left!  :D

Quote
A scenario that seemed unlikely several weeks ago is now coming true: LeBron James will leave the Miami Heat and return home to Cleveland, signing a maximum deal with the Cavaliers, he announced on Sports Illustrated.

The move culminates days of uncertainty that included many rumors, several meetings between James' agent and different teams and both the Cavaliers and Heat making significant free-agent decisions anticipating James' return. In the end, though, the lure of his hometown and the promise of playing with a younger, up-and-coming team dwarfed a potential return to the place where he won his first two championships.

James will return to Cleveland despite making four straight Finals appearances with Miami, including two championships. He will reunite with Dan Gilbert, who famously scorned James in a hand-written later after he left Cleveland for Miami in 2010 in a televised special. Good fortune, a series of cap-clearing moves and the Heat's woeful exit to the Spurs in the Finals put Cleveland back in the picture for James after a disappointing 33-49 season.

Most people expected the Big Three to remain intact despite getting beat down by the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals, with early rumors suggesting that they all would take less and Carmelo Anthony would join them in South Beach. But once James and his two running mates opted out of their contracts, speculation began to run rampant that perhaps a breakup was coming. The talk of James taking less money died down, as it became clear he wanted a max salary in the first year of his next deal.

James' agent, Rich Paul, began taking meetings with other teams, including the Cleveland Cavaliers, Houston Rockets, Phoenix Suns and Dallas Mavericks. The Los Angeles Lakers also scrambled to get into the mix.

But soon, with the uncertainty surrounding James' future rising, momentum began to build toward a possible return to Cleveland. The Cavs made it clear they would go after James in free agency, but never mind the obsessive flight record tracking of owner Dan Gilbert's plane, nor the team website's timely removal of the owner's letter following James' decision in 2010 (that was later revealed to be coincidence). The Cavs first opened up enough cap space to sign James by moving Jarrett Jack, Tyler Zeller and Sergey Karasev away in a three-team deal with Boston and Brooklyn. Immediately after the deal, Cleveland was linked to free agents and former teammates of James, including Mike Miller, Ray Allen and James Jones. As those rumors swirled, Bosh received a max contract offer from the Rockets, which then led to more talk about Anthony possibly going to Miami.

Pat Riley met with James and Paul in Las Vegas on Wednesday in what now clearly seems like a last-ditch attempt to convince James to stay in Miami, but James left without a commitment and said he'd take time to talk it over with his family.

James may have been bested by Kevin Durant for the MVP award last season, but the four-time MVP remains the gold standard in the NBA. James averaged 27.1 points, 6.9 rebounds and 6.4 assists last year while also improving his field-goal percentage for the seventh straight season.

James did slip a bit on the defensive end, although that may have been more a function of him conserving energy throughout the year. When he put his mind to it, James remained one of the more dominant forces on the defensive side of the ball.

James led the Heat to a fourth consecutive NBA Finals appearance, but they ultimately proved to be no match for San Antonio. James himself played well in the Finals, averaging 28.2 points on 57.1 percent shooting, but it was nowhere near enough against the Spurs' juggernaut. Miami pushed for a reload this summer but it wasn't as easy as expected with free agent targets such as Kyle Lowry and Marcin Gortat being re-signed by their current clubs.

James returns to a Cavs team that is in better shape talent wise than when he made the fateful Decision in 2010. Kyrie Irving is a blossoming star, and there are numerous high draft picks on the roster, including another No. 1 pick in rookie Andrew Wiggins. With quality young talent around James, Cleveland has a chance to return to prominence.

Cleveland may also attempt to re-engage the Minnesota Timberwolves in trade talks surrounding Kevin Love, with Wiggins as possible bait. Love made it clear he would not re-sign in Cleveland prior to the draft, but that was before it landed James.

This crackhead is done for in the NBA.. not even Phil could help him?!?!?!

Lamar Odom waived by Knicks


The New York Knicks have waived veteran Lamar Odom.

The team announced on Friday that president Phil Jackson decided to release Odom, citing a lack of professionalism.

"Unfortunately, Lamar was unable to uphold the standards to return as an NBA player," Jackson said in a statement. "We found it necessary to free up the roster spot."

The Knicks also re-signed center Cole Aldrich on Friday night.

Odom's release was the latest set-back in the 6-10 forward's career. The Knicks signed Odom on April 16th -- the final day of the regular season -- to a two-year contract with the second year non-guaranteed.

This gave the Knicks the opportunity to monitor Odom over the summer and decide whether or not he deserved a roster spot. Clearly, Jackson wasn't satisfied with Odom's approach during the trial period.

Odom's last stint in the NBA was in 2012-13 with the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Clippers and Lakers had expressed interest in signing Odom at various points of the 2013-14 season after a tumultuous summer off the floor that included his eventual divorce from reality TV star Khloe Kardashian.

During the 2013 offseason, Odom was arrested on a DUI charge and reportedly dealt with substance-abuse issues.

Aldrich was with the Knicks last season, averaging 2.0 points and 2.8 rebounds in 46 games.
