NAW was doing really well for a stretch of games before getting injured. Say, our pick is 10 - Is there some maneuverablity there? I don't think 10 and 11 gets us into the top 4. It might end up being a frustrating situation.

If Beal was willing to do a sign and trade so NO had long term security, I think you can get another high pick since our first rounder is probably outside of the sweet spot.

Don't worry, Lebron. The NBA will make sure the Lakers make it into the playoffs no matter what. If necessary, you will shoot 25 free throws in that play-in game.

I like the play-in. It definitely has put a stop to tanking by mediocre teams, and frankly, I don't think 7th and 8th seeded teams (particularly in the East) should be rewarded with a sure-thing playoff berth. Let them earn it in the play-in game or bust their butts to get to the 6th seed.

Udonis Haslem played a total of 2 minutes this season, and he earned his salary. Dude scored 2 baskets, drew an offensive foul, but what he really did was send the message - If you try to bully us in the playoffs, you're cutting off more than you can chew. And you can believe that message will fire up his teammates.

18 years in the NBA for 1 team... after being undrafted. Damn! Btw, he's still got a little something left in the tank.
