They are certainly big up front - Whiteside, Bam Adebayo, and now Olynyk.

One of them is coming off the bench and it ain't Whiteside or Olynyk.

Mistake by Boston if they're building to beat the Warriors.

I wouldn't think that's realistic this year no matter what moves they make.

I think they can make the finals, the cavs are finished. I don't think they can beat the warriors but Bradley would have helped to slow down curry or Thompson.

Lebron creates a soap opera wherever he goes, it's the cavs turn for the past few seasons to be the co star. He's gone next year, so yeah they are finished. If they had any balls they'd trade him now and get what they can instead of him walking off. However the idea of trading James seems stupid to almost everybody, but he is going. Or the idea that someone other than James dictates his future seems implausible. It's not, trade him.

Yeah, I don't like him either.

I kinda feel bad for the kid, by Lonzo Ball did unbelievably bad shooting last night. They showed daddy Lamar smiling before the game. I'd like to have seen him during.

He'll have a few of those and by no fault of his people are gonna start snickering. The weight of expectations is huge and not deserving for a 19 year old kid. I remember watching that documentary about Bird and Magic and seeing how Boston fans saw Bird as the saviour and he kinda gets the same hype I feel which is not how I see someone who is not good as Rubio at this point.

There are three summer league games on each day and ESPN shows games on Sundays along with the NBA Channel. Frank Mason, drafted by Sacramento, is impressive. They have two great point guard rookies with Fox.

Signed johnathan simmons off the spurs. A good player if erratic. Apparently he felt too contained by pop, so I don't know if that's a good sign. I have a feeling there's a touch of the lance Stevenson about him, but we'll see.

The Houston Rockets are up for sale.

Larry Ellison, the founder of Oracle, has tried getting in on majority ownership a number of times. I wonder if he'll go for Houston. NBA has lots of tech guys now. Allen for Portland, Ballmer for the Clips, Lacob for the Warriors, and of course, Cuban for the Mavs.

No bother to Kyrie! Lebron must be losing his shit that this isn't something he can't control.

And every fanbase apart from the Wariors are making fantasy trades ever since the news came out. The Bucks boards are going crazy even though there's no realistic chance of this happenning.

I bet the Cavs really appreciate Kyrie Irving announcing he wants a trade after the draft. Word is he wants to got to Minnesota to play with Butler.
