    Noel reclassified, remember. He's probably one of the youngest players in the draft.

    Re: NBA Draft 2013

    It's looking more and more like Alex Len will be the top pick next Thursday with Victor Oladipo going second to Orlando. The Wizards are the team being mentioned for Noel but even then he won't drop past Charlotte.

    I'm a Wolves fan (was huge KG fan, hence my screename) hoping they get Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. Wouldn't mind Shabazz.

    According to a source, Cleveland offered the No. 1 pick, Tristan Thompson and Dion Waiters to try and land Minnesota’s Kevin Love. But new Timberwolves president Flip Saunders won’t move Love.

    Nice! There's two of us!

    Agreed on KCP.

    If Kirilenko opts out, I'd decline Cunningham/Steimsma's options and try to acquire Pierce from Boston.

    Also, have to match any offer for Pekovic

    Re: NBA Draft 2013

    I'm not that interested in the draft, but I'm not sure where to put this so I will put it here. I am very interested to see how Chris Paul and Doc get along. Paul hasn't had a great coach (Byron Scott, Monty Williams, and Vinny) and has a reputation of being very tough on teammates and coaches alike.

    Re: NBA Draft 2013

    Just a couple of my thoughts.

    There were times when Alex Len was the most dominant player in college basketball last season. There were other times where he was nonexistent. I would still take him #1.

    So let me get this straight, a guy who has 0 offensive game, relies on athleticism, and coming off a massive knee injury is being debated as the #1 overall pick. Nothing against Noel but I sure wouldn't want to be making that decision.

    Olidapo would be considered a steal of many drafts. Can you consider a guy a steal if he goes in the top 5?

    Cody Zeller is guy who will be drafted on size and athleticism but he has been know to play small. Could be very good in an up and down offense. I wouldn't touch him if you wanted to play a half court game.

    Is Olynyk falling because of Adam Morrison's NBA tank job? Guy seems like a matchup nightmare. Dirk anyone?

    Re: NBA Draft 2013

    Boston and Brooklyn discussing a blockbuster deal that would send Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Nets, league sources tell Y! Sports.


    Now that's what I'm talkin' bout!

"If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    There are compelling reasons for Cleveland to go in several directions at #1:

    Len -- Likened to Zydrunas Ilgauskas, a solid, but not a franchise center for the Cavs for many years.

    Noel -- True, his offensive game has a long way to go, and he may never come close to becoming Alonzo Mourning part 2. That stated, Noel may well be another Larry Sanders, which is still as valuable as an Ilgauskas, especially to the Cavs, who ranked near the bottom in defensive field goal percentage.

    Oladipo -- An upside as high as any in this draft.

    Bennett -- See Oladipo.

    McLemore -- If McLemore truly is the lights-out shooter and can't miss prospect some pundits claim that is, he has to at least be considered here.

    Porter -- If the Cavs are serious about making the Playoffs next year, Porter not only fills a pressing team need, but also is considered to be the most NBA ready player in the draft. His upside, however is considered limited. The Cavs could then grab one of the big men that are certain to fall to #19, because many teams are starved for PGs and wing players. That, IMO, is why Olynyk seems to be projected to drop in the draft.

    I doubt that Adam Morrison's disappointing NBA career comes into play here. By all accounts, Morrison's aloof personality was mostly to blame for his downfall, as he was unable to adjust to life in the NBA.

    As for Zeller, IMO, he'll be fine in a half court setting so long as he can consistently hit the outside shot. That stated, he is better suited for an up-and-down game, as you stated.

    I am hoping Larkin falls to Knicks but I think Hawks take with one of next two picks

    Noel not number one? There might be a reason the Cavs are as bad as they are sans the LeBron years.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
