    Jaylen Brown is going to announce his decision today....they say 90% going pro but his teammate Ivan Rabb could go back to school despite being a bona fide top 10 pick, possibly even top 6ish depending on how the individual workouts go.

    if Rabb stays in school that will really put a dampener on the strength of the lottery...this draft is already being labeled as incredibly weak by at least 75% of scouts from what im gathering....though i've also heard this one will be infinitely better than 2013 despite the dreaded comparisons. if this one is as bad as 2013 then honestly im gonna be fucking pissed because the Celtics own 8 goddamn picks

    Tom Thibodeau(Head Coach of the 2008 Boston Celtics, later of Chicago Bulls fame) has agreed to coach the Timberwolves. My prediction is the Timberwolves are gonna play .500 ball next year at least. They are quickly becoming my favorite NBA team to watch, i'd pay the 180 dollars for LP just to watch Towns, Wiggins, LaVine and Rubio. Top 5 pick coming in too. Big things happening up in Minny

    The Knicks are interviewing David Blatt allegedly, before you Knicks fans jump off a cliff just remember this guy is the most accomplished coach overseas in the 21st century...dude knows what he's doing. Knicks people are saying that might kill their chance at landing LeBron if they hire Blatt.....they've already ruined that chance long before now

    Barkley says the Clips are gonna beat Warriors in round 2....somebody tell Chuck that getting to the 2nd round is like winning a title for the Clippers :lol:

    yeah that's not happening haha, KD already has said there's zero interest in that franchise...they're terrible no offense if you're a Wiz fan but holy dysfunction on all levels

    there's this thing called cap space that exists, its pretty rad you should check it out

    yeah i'm not crazy about him being the GM and coach at the same time....that's always a strange dynamic but look at what Van Gundy is doing in Detroit, Pistons have way less talent than Minnesota and they're in the playoffs(granted its the east). Towns is on his way to becoming the best player in basketball when he hits his prime, and his supporting cast is young and insanely athletic. T'wolves fans should be pumped

    Stars are lazy, they don't want to work hard. The wolves are going to get into shape. And play D.

    David Blatt can suck my dick. I prefer anyone to Rambis but if the Knicks have a .000000001% chance of getting Lebron you don't blow it.
