Lol I love the games of cat and mouse that go on at draft time - speculation that Zion might return to Duke because he doesn't want to play for the Pels.

Literally zero percent chance he leaves $12m on the table to go back to school next year.

Or a $100m + shoe contract either.

Especially after that injury scare. If he got a serious injury going back to school, he could lose out on up to $100 mil.

Draymoond is having pretty great bounce back playoffs

12,8 ppg
9,4 rpg
7,7 apg
1,7 bpg
1,1 spg
52% FG
54,5 eFG

He still can't is shooting some horrific bricks for 3 and FT line but his defense since he dropped weight has been pretty impressive

For sure. Or even if he had a sub par year or was perceived to have one. His value will never be higher than it is right now remember Marcus Smart? Went back and got hurt and his stock dove.

Zion already had an injury this season and his weight makes it easier to happen again. No way he will stay another season in college. It's too risky.

It is awesome watching the CURRY brothers guard each other, I was hoping it would happen and it happened both game 1 and game 2 so it will continue throughout the series. Now that the series is going to Portland, I wouldn't be shocked or surprised if Seth outplays Steph in games 3 and 4 cause Portland players play better on their home court. Seth played very well in game 2, I think he did in game 1 also, So Seth could really go off on his home court.

How did you get yourself busted on steroids in offseason? Silver cought you shooting needle in your a$s?

Now when i think about it, it's probably street drug, not steroids...

Yeah they confirmed it wasn't any PEDs. Probably similar to OJ Mayo situation (coke, pills, etc).

Bucks looking really good tonight so far. Nice to see Ilyasova making an impact as well. It sucks that he was part of that bad Tobias trade, but I liked Ilyasova when he was on the team, but he just didn't fit with the roster. He fits perfectly with this Bucks team though, so I'm happy to see him doing well.

Really dissapointed in the Tor supporting cast. They are crapping the bed, blowing their best shot at the finals. But Mil is playing masterfully, they are in sync. They can win it all now. Who would have thought at this time last year the Bucks would be the favorites with Durant iffy now???

Vuc should be playing the Lopez role for us. You just don't win through the post anymore.

I pitched this idea after game 2 against the Raptors and got laughed at
