I liked this kid a lot from the tournament last year, or was it the year before, Rona got me twisted. Didn’t he go in the teens? He’s fearless I kinda dig it.

Cleveland thinks they can land Ben Simmons if he becomes available by trade.

Yeah, I doubt Rich Paul, and Klutch Sports are going to make Dan Gilbert's life easier.

I honestly believe we have the inside track for a Ben Simmons trade with so many attractive, tradable assets.

BS would be our version of Draymond in our Warriors East experiment...

Kenny Atkinson seems like a natural fit for Da Bulls moving forward...

Why Pablo Torre believes ex-Celtic Al Horford is 'useless' on 76ers

"The whole, 'Let's break up Joel and Ben' eternal conversation ... we should be talking about breaking up Al and Joel," Torre told Haberstroh. That is the relationship that is irrevocably broken. That's the one that is a non-starter. That's the one that's doomed. We have all sorts of evidence now, but the eye test and statistical, to prove this. ... In no world does Joel Embiid and Al Horford as a pair make sense."

Horford fit well in Boston and thrived in Brad Stevens' system by doing a little bit of everything on both ends of the floor. But Torre believes the 34-year-old doesn't bring much of anything to Philly.

"I just hate watching Al Horford play basketball. I just hate it. It's infuriating," Torre said. " ... We've had four extra months to really contemplate how useless Al Horford is to the Sixers' ambitions. ... Part of it is because (head coach) Brett Brown and the Sixers took forever to admit that he should not be playing with Joel. ... It's just Groundhog Day. It's just endless. I don't hate anyone in the NBA. But I hate watching Al Horford play basketball."

That's a pretty harsh assessment of a five-time All-Star. But as the Sixers stumble into their first-round playoff series against the Celtics without star point guard Ben Simmons, Torre believes Horford's poor on-floor chemistry with Embiid will be exposed.

"When he was with the Hawks, with the Celtics, throughout his very long career, what he could do -- space the floor, facilitate defend -- all real skills," Torre said. "But they're utterly negated when Joel Embiid is the other guy."

LeBron James Reportedly Upset With Bucks For Blindsiding Players


Per Haynes:
"LeBron James was one of the many players miffed with the Bucks’ handling of the situation as well, sources said. To him and so many others, it put them in a no-win situation. 

His frustration with Hill and the Bucks was because the players didn’t have a plan of action that would warrant players returning to play, sources said. James’ mindset, sources said, was if they’re refusing to play, then what’s the end game and what demands must be met to continue?"

Even Udonis Haslem called out Hill and the Bucks although eventually, all was resolved, and starting Saturday, the NBA is back.

Legendary Georgetown coach John Thompson dead

Thompson, 78, compiled a coaching record of 596-239, and 97% of his players stayed all four years and left with a college degree. He was the first Black head coach to win the NCAA national championship when the Hoyas defeated the University of Houston Cougars in the 1984 NCAA title game.

Lu Dort left college after one year and went undrafted. With the growth he's shown, if he was coming out of college in this draft...he'd undoubtedly be a top-20 draftee.

Possible lottery guy. I have to wonder if he cost himself millions in the early going by leaving school before he was ready. Dude is clearly an NBA caliber athlete/prospect.
