The two biggest news in the NBA right now? LeBron James exploding for what 48 points on the so called best team in the East, scoring 25 straight points and shattering whatever bullshit that labelled him as a choker, thus establisihing his legacy with probably the greatest individual performance by any player this century. I’m all the way behind Cleveland, no, it’s not because i’m jumping onto another wagon right here, and no, it’s not because James won my heart over, it’s because they beat us Nets, and any team that should win the championship? it’s a team that had us beat in the playoffs, and that’s the Cavs. I’m telling you, the Western Conference maybe stronger, but the East is way more entertaining, and yes, no one can stop James right now.
Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James dunks as Detroit Pistons defender Jason Maxiell looks onin the fourth quarter of their NBA Eastern Conference Final basketall game in Auburn Hills, Mich., Thursday, May 31, 2007. In Thursday night's 109-107 NBA playoffs victory in two overtimes over Detroit, James  scored 48 points, including his team's final 25 and 29 of their final 30 points.
unstoppable…for the moment

After the positive, there’s always a negative, Kobe Bryant, probably the biggest virus, bacteria or anything bad in the NBA, demanding a trade from the Lakers, let’s do a little flashback here, I’ve never been a fan of Kobe and will never be, not when he dismantled my Nets in 5 games, and muttered some crap like “This doesn’t feel like the Finals”. Kobe Bryant doing a Vince Carter and whine his way out of town? Big question is, who would want, probably the biggest egomaniac in the league (ok, maybe David Stern is first) on their team? Yes, he is undoubtedly the best wing in the league right now, but that’s it, individually that’s all he is. Team wise, he’s a load of crap.

Ah.Yes, Vince Carter, the model for choking, probably spending time in Daytona right now thinking about the 9 three pointers he made earlier in the season, actually if he didn’t choke that badly in the playoffs, he could actually warrant a new contract, a lucrative one i might add. See, he set a new franchise record for three pointers made in a game, most points scored for the entire season, and is part of the double triple double game, made the All Star Game, and was named Player of the Month, that’s pretty good for someone in a contract year, but after the playoffs, 16 million sounds too much for a franchise player who scored as much as Mikki Moore did.

And back to the Draft, note that we only have one single pick, the 17th pick, which, i’m still not sure who we will draft, BUT, the team do not have a second round pick, which is a bummer, because i think in this year’s draft, there’s a big possibility that the second round hides a big number of gems that could be unravelled into the next Arenas or Redd.


Guys in my projection like Zabian Dowdell, Dashaun Wood, and maybe even Jared Jordan, have the possibility of not getting drafted, so it would be the team’s chance to pounce and sign one of them to backup Marcus Williams, which in turn would be a better upgrade than playing Carter at the point, Speaking of Point, this theory of mine, see before game 6 VC played Point Guard after Marcus Williams was dormant on the bench fighting his insecurities, and maybe that’s because he played that much on that particular position, he became stagnant or whatever, thus being useless in games 5 and 6.

Billy Donovan as Magic Head Coach, dull….shades of Mike Montgomery, Rick Pitino anyone?don’t be surprise if the Magic drafts Taurean Green with their first round pick, it could happen, and Jameer Nelson could rot on the bench, Milicic will stay in Orlando and be a starter, VC WILL NOT go to Orlando, JJ Redick will get minutes and eventually start, in the end, the magic will miss the playoffs and Donovan gets to sit on the draft lottery seat.

As crazy as it seems, how bout doing a sign and trade for Rashard Lewis??okay, maybe i’m just saying, and it would not happen either, we don’t have the parts the Sonics need, and Lewis hates Collins, kidding. BUT, sending VC to the Knicks sounds awfully good, look we’ll just take Q-Rich and the 23rd pick of yours how’s that? oh, throw in Randolph Morris too, and no thanks regarding the Francis swap, i’m having a stomachache here..

Alright, that’s it, i’m still in the barrier of not being able to write anything productive or good at the moment, but the Lokking Forward Features and stuff will be back soon, and I will still not spare people from having to watch Throwbacks of Derrick Coleman. Cheers.

yes, Derrick = gay shit
