so how do you think your team did?

any surprises?

the bucks got gary shandling(well, larry sanders) in the first round, not sure how to feel about that, and with their 3rd rounder they got a guy whose name makes little sense in tiny gallon(isnt a gallon always a gallon?). they went big and im happy because they needed to, and the addition of maggette and the soon to be addition of chris douglas-roberts have my team ready to make another trip to the playoffs if all goes well. after this year we get redds contract off the books too, so things are finally looking up for the bucks. fear the deer!!!

2 words: John Wall. And apparently Kirk Hinrich via trade.

My Twolves did nothing to impress me once again this year. I won't get excited about anything this team does until I actually see it work out on the court.

John Wall doesn't/won't/has never impressed me. It would not surprise me if Evan Turner is the best player taken in this draft. The Wizards wasted a pick on Wall IMO

I tought the Knicks did a good job on there two picks getting Andy Rautins and Landry Fields. Rautins a very good shooter and will do good in mike d'antoni's system. But i don't know why no NBA team didn't pick Marqus Blakely this kid can play some ball.

Rautins will be a 6th man. D'Antoni won't last long in New York. His style of play will NEVER win a championship. The Suns got infinitely better once he left. You need to play defense to win a championship in the NBA and D'Antoni doesn't know the meaning of the word.

I must say I despise John Wall and think he is overrated for not yet playing a minute in the NBA. I'm going to get a Turner jersey. No I'm not a philly fan and I hate Ohio State. But when I saw him pick apart Illini(I'm from Illinois) I was amazed. Ever since then I have loved him.

I am a bulls fan also so Wizards congrats you have Wall and Hinrich. But guess what. We gave you Hinrich and why did we give you Hinrich? So we can get Bosh and LBJ!

I don't think that's gonna happen, dude. Additionally, I don't see the hype surrounding Bosh. He's an okay player, but he's not even the best available player at his own position. Stoudemire is a much better pick up than Bosh because he's a 4/5 combo player.

Its gonna happen. An NBA executive just confirmed it today and the agency for Bosh and James(which by the way is in Chicago) said that they are both coming to the Bulls. Ummm I would much rather have Bosh then the injury prone Stoudamire

I don't care what NBA executive said that. Only LeBron knows where he's going. He's got an interview with the Nets and the Knicks lined up. Though, the Knicks are reportedly going to offer a max deal to Joe Johnson. Chicago cannot match Cleveland's offer to LeBron. The Cavs can offer LeBron the highest amount of money in this free agency. That being said, they are also showing LeBron that they are willing to do whatever it will take to re-sign him. Bosh also has injury problems, BTW.

EDIT:

The New Jersey Nets are planning to meet face-to-face with two more marquee free agents after their trip Thursday to Northeast Ohio to make the first pitch to LeBron James. Sources close to the situation told ESPN.com that the Nets have separate meetings tentatively scheduled Friday in New York City with Miami's Dwyane Wade and Toronto's Chris Bosh.

but what about LBJ's and Bosh's agency saying that Bosh and LBJ are both headed to Chicago. Bosh has also said it himself that he is going where LBJ is going. I don't think the Cavs can re-sign LBJ and then sign Bosh. Knicks are going after Joe Johnson because that is really the only person they can get. Joe Johnson wants to come to the Bulls but according to him the Bulls have 0 interest in him.

His agent is going to say whatever, dude. If it was a done deal there's no point in LeBron meeting with the Nets. Prokhorov has a boat-load of money and will sign whomever he can to get LeBron to come there. I know that there's a salary cap so I'm referring to coaches and such. New Jersey makes sense for LeBron. Chicago doesn't The Bulls already have a young nucleus in place and selling/trading that off for the possibility of signing LeBron is going to leave them in worse off than had they just kept what they had. New Jersey is at the bottom of the barrel and has signed 3 very good young talents in Williams, Favors, and Crawford in the past 2 years. I have no doubt that Bosh will follow LeBron but I don't think it will be to Chicago.
