Being a Mavs fan I wanted Hamilton but I did like the Rudy pickup.

Oh goodie. Wouldn't want the Lakers to have to deal with anything less then two superstars. That would be bad for the league, you know if someone else besides the Lakers won the title. Then again how funny would it be to see the Lakers beat the Heat in the Finals with Brown as the coach?

Well I didn't hear it from an anonymous random twitter user, but I don't know where they got it from. It was just chatter here at work (as often happens)

Yeah, but im 99% sure the Lakers are gonna make a big deal at some point, that performance in the playoffs was absolutely horrible. Something going down after that. Interesting how bad's Pau play was for a playoff series put his status as tradable. Very interesting and a bit knee jerk. But IMO Bynum and Odom is a viable package to bring in a pretty good player. I fully expect to see a great PG or C in a Lakers uniform whenever next season begins.

Re: Washington Wizards 2011-2012 Ongoing Thread

I long for an NBA where the Knicks, Lakers, Celtics, and Heat all suck. Chicago is fine since they're not really trying to buy championships but I still have my eye on them.

Still though, the sense of entitlement from these big market teams is disgusting. Maybe it's just me but you rarely see anything like that in the NHL and NFL.

Nice draft. Building a bright future after the housecleaning.

Seriously good read. Singleton and Mack are gonna be assets, and im loving the fact we are talking defense. Hamilton and Brad Stevens are pretty smart coaches, good perspective on coaching d.

It can only be viewed as a good thing to hear the Wizards talking about defense. With the offensive players they have assembled, scoring should be no problem.....embracing the concept of defense for them has always been a hard sell. An aura of excitement is beginning to surround these new Wizards that is unmatched by any other time in their recent history.

Chris Singleton provides defensive dimension for Wizards - Washington Times

Well, looks like the NBA lockout is set to start in a little over 6 hours.

So here is a random link of an interview with Jan Vasely's smoking hot girlfriend Eva, and his sister Hanna who looks pretty good too:

Its official now. Personally I think its a good thing, and a situation where I doubt I'll be favoring the players anytime soon, unlike my back and fourth with the NFL situation.

Pro's:
- A much improved Wizards team would still get credit for their dismal record over the last few years and have a great chance of winning an aggregate lottery. The same type that netted the Pens Sidney Crosby after the NHL lockout.

- John Walls legs get a year off.

- If the owners win a hard cap or flex cap gets implemented. Either way the days of teams like Boston and LA trying to buy championships would be over.

- Lebron can't win a championship for another year.

Con's
- Veasly misses out on a chance to learn the NBA game for a year.

- We also loose a year in the development of guys like McGee, Crawford, and Wall.

-A hard cap makes it difficult for teams to keep players they drafted. One of the great things about the current NBA system is that players can almost always stay in the city they're drafted. Unfortunately now it's being used by star players to cry their way out of small markets.

- No basketball, but in referring to the pros section a year off might be necessary to overhaul a system that is very much anti-parity.



I guess in the end the best realistic possibility would be a shortened season that got our guys experience while overhauling the anti-parity system that strongly favors teams like Boston and LA.

Re: Washington Wizards 2011-2012 Ongoing Thread

"Lockout" has become a household word now with both the NFL and NBA deadlocked over how to come to an agreement. Lost in it all is the one element the games cannot do without...the fan

With NBA lockout there are plenty of losers, but it starts with fans | ProBasketballTalk
