Didn't take Lavar long to come up with a ridiculous comment did it? Lonzo has the potential to be very good but playoffs next season is a stretch.

Watched some of it back this morning. Jimmy Butler trade was a surprise but a good move for Minnesota.

I watched most of the first, Bulls are the team I follow the most couldn't believe they had moved Butler, there was talks last off season of it, and then again on the lead up to this draft but really didn't expect them to do it, didn't get a great deal back either, should have tried to keep the 16th pick

I watched a bit but realised the Duck players would be going in the 2nd so quit before I got too into it.

Psyched they all got picked up though Bell, Dorsey and Brooks drafted Boucher signed later. Still think with his Greek heritage and the fact he played for Greece in the FIBA that Dorsey will come to Europe within 2 years and be a star instead of struggling to make a NBA team or going to the D-League

I love parts of how they present the draft but the way they deal with the trades is bonkers... id rather they have a process that slows down the draft but means when the guy comes out he at least is given the right Cap and has his proper moment... I know its not a new issue it just bugs me...

So Butler reunited with Thibodeau, also rumoured he is after Rose, that makes less sense with Rubio ending the season so well...

Knicks I have seen have Zero cap space going into FA - How?? It again is no new issue but it really is a terrible state of affairs when you look at Cavs/GSW?Others that are winning and stacked with talent and knicks have sucked for years, cant even say that its the effect of having success and this is the dip after... I know GSW and Cavs will have to rework things next summer to keep their rosters even remotely together... but you accept that it can't last for ever and three visits to the finals back to back is good going lol...

Knicks however have to deal with Melo - probably ditch Rose and even then wont be in a great position.

Good news, the Clippers being a decent team never felt right to me.

Uh oh prepare for a lot more Lebron talk this season (I didn't think it was possible but here we are) , there seems to be some stories saying he wants to leave the Cavs at the end of the season. A full year of will he, won't he and if he does where will he go.

Oh dear, sounds to me like another instance of him throwing his toys out of the pram, just because he didn't win the championship. Who'd want him when he acts like that?
Ooh look - it's the New York Knicks.
