I had not planned on posting until after the draft, but with all the excitement, speculation and trades, I had to comment.
Shaq to the Cavs
This is a good trade all around. The Cavs get a player who people forget had a good year with a team that struggle to utilize him. He scored 18 points a game and grabbed nine boards.
For the Suns it gives them cap space, but more importantly, it allows the offense to flow from Steve Nash to Amare Stoudemire and not be forced to dump into the post.
The Cavsnow have three good big man who are all very different and will add so much depth to this team. The one thing they still lack is a player who is not LeBron that is a guard, over 6’6″, and can guard, ala Mickael Peitrus.
Note to Shaq: This is LeBron’s team and you are a part of it. Come in, join the laid back vibe, have fun but remember, this is not 2001.
I like Yao and I feel for the Houston Rocket nation. Yao is an extremely talented player and has been a ambassador for the league and for the Chinese, but he can not stay healthy.
Get well Yao!
This will be a fun night, I hope the Clippers mess it up and the T’Wolves don’t and do not pick Thabeet.
I hope feel good with any combo of these players after pick 6: Tyreke Evans, Jonny Flynn, Steph Curry, James Harden and Ricky Rubio.
At the 18th pick: Sam Young or Eric Maynor.
28th pick: Derrick Brown or Chase Budinger.
I sure there will be plenty to write about tomorrow.
