    BTW, nice analysis, Scrap.
    I could be wrong, but I think MJ is just part owner not the GM. I believe they have a GM.

    You are not wrong, I am. However, Jordan made horrible decisions during his time with the Wizards, so the point still stands.

    I'm not sure if anyone has followed HoopIdea on ESPN, I heard a proposal to fix tanking that I really found intriguing.

    Get rid of the draft.

    Simply set a hard cap with maximum salaries. So, if LeBron can get $40 million a year on the open market (which he would), let him. Also, if Anthony Davis can get $15 million, let him. It would force a spreading out of the elite talent that the current soft cap encourages and it would force every team to try. There is no incentive to do what Charlotte, New Orleans, or so many other teams through the years have done by gutting their rosters.

    This also might push teams to really taking advantage of the D League. They would be able to sign and stock minor league teams more easily and teach the game in a more consistent way.

    WOW! D. Rose tears his ACL and MCL in the final minute with a 12 pt lead... let the 2nd guessing begin.

    It's been confirmed. He is out for the rest of the season. Too bad.

    No Rose, no Howard, and four East matchups with clear favorites. The West is another story..Three out of four series may go either way.

    Very sad news for Rose. This season has really been awful for him.

    I'm pulling for the griz to come out of the West. I dunno why, but they're fun to watch.

    I didnt think it was that bad. They still out rebounded the Magic. They just couldn't hit a shot, they won't shoot that poorly very often.

    You have to try to blow a 21 point lead after three quarters. Try hard at that.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    Please tell me you guys are watching LeBron. He is playing every position from 1 to 4 on offense, scoring 30+, and guarding both Carmelo and Tyson Chandler. He is unreal.
