I've been watching the Wiz a lot more lately with Wall healthy again, and all I can say is that I wish he had gotten back sooner. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad he took the time he did to get fully healthy, but this turned into a wasted season with him on the bench for 30+ games.

Thank you OKC for James Harden! Led by arguably the best backcourt in the NBA, I'm predicting the Rockets make it all the way to Western Conference Finals.

Maybe not in a 7 game series, but they did beat the Thunder, Heat, and Spurs in the regular season.

Right. I said maybe they won't win in a 7 game series.

The NBA is official dead to me. It has to be the bottom of the barrel sport right now.

NHL, NFL, MLB > NBA

2013 NBA draft -- Cleveland Cavaliers win NBA draft lottery; Orlando Magic get 2nd pick - ESPN

They really need to get rid of this stupid lottery system. It's broken and it doesn't help the teams at the bottom. It's all built on chance and that's not a good system to get the worse teams better. There is no reason the Bobcats shouldn't be selecting #1 the past few years. Absolutely stupid.


You guys speak of NBA sucking....well it does. Beyond the playoffs, the NBA is rather boring for the most part. They don't do enough to keep stars in small markets, they want 4-5 select teams to stay on top the majority of the time. They really need to fix it.

How'd you come up with that theory?

The lottery system was already in place when the Spurs picked. The Celtics had the worst record the year that Duncan came out, and the Spurs had the third worst record in the NBA.

Thank you for correcting his ignorance on the subject. The lottery has been around in the NBA for a long time. In fact, the first one was in 1985 and New York won the right to select Patrick Ewing. Granted, that old system was much worse than the one now. That said, it's STILL a horrible system for the NBA.

before the lottery, that was a pretty prevalent theory...people tanking to get the best player. Basketball adds 1, maybe 2 true impact players a year. Why did they start the lottery, too shake it up?
