Who's going it all? Will the Nuggets come back? etc...

The finals is probably going to be the Heat vs Thunder. Well, that's what I think, so, what's your opinion?

Most players retire at age 36. Instead of Blake's game going up it's going to go down.


he will retire when his contract ends

derrick rose gets injured

That wasn't really surprising because he had a lot of problems with the injury during the regular season. I feel sorry for him, one season thrown away like that. Same to Richard Hamilton.
knicks made it in after who know how long

I didn't think they were going to make it. The injuries to Iman Shumpert (or however you spell it lol), Lin, and Amar'e brought them down.
OKC beat dallas, LAL, and SA 3 of the best in NBA

If you compare OKC to those 3 teams, OKC has much better speed and transition gameplay. So, they had the advantage. The win against the Spurs was impressive for OKC. James Harden just died in the Finals. If he didn't they would've won at least 2 games.
LAC did great

Memphis almost beat them actually, in Game 1. And then the Clippers just owned them in the 2nd half.
indiana shock the us ...

The 76ers shocked the US too. Considering how young their team is.

Well yea but obviously he will get worse with age but the point is he may not be as good as he used to be but he is still better than a lot of players ever will be

Okay guys, let's talk draft. Anyone else surprised at Dion Waiters going 4th overall? What about Perry Jones and Jared Sullinger falling to the 20s? I wanna hear what you guys think. Who succeeded and failed in this years draft?

I actually expected Draymond Green to be picked either in the top three of the 2nd round or late in the first round

Yeah but as a warrior fan I like that pick. I think Draymond Green is going to be a great addition to the warriors. But if there is one thing that ticked me off about the draft it was that the warriors picked that Bosnian big man when they could have gotten darrius Johnson odom from Marquette. Also Festus Ezeli was a great pick for them. They could use a good big man for Biedrins, the problem with the big Bosnian is that they had already picked Ezeli. But I hated their first round pick of Harrison Barnes. They already have a good SF in Dorrell Wright and they could use a true PG cuz Steph Curry is more of a SG or spot up guy than a ball handler. But I think that the Hornets had the best draft getting Davis and Rivers. That's a great rookie combo and it's going to really help in the future to be one of the premier duos in the league in a few years.

Just found out Lamar Odom has been picked up by the Clippers. The analysts are saying it is a good thing that he is back in LA. But I don't buy it. It'd be a good thing if he were with the Lakers but I think with the other LA team its going to be an awkward transition for him. And I dont think he is ready to come back after such a disastrous 2012 season. And also, Odom felt betrayed by the LA organizations for trying to include him in the Chris Paul deal so I don't think he is all that thrilled to be back in LA either.

I'm from Cleveland and I thought Dion Waiters was a good pick because we needed a shooting guard and I personally think he will work well with Kyrie Irving. I don't know a lot about him but I looked up some videos of his highlights. He's quick and is good on the inside and can be good in the outside From what I heard also you can correct me if I'm wrong but I don't know everything about the guy.
