The Highlights on NBA.com are awesome, but for some videos u must to be registered... like top ten assits of the year!!

Pistons and Lakers are both only 1 win away from the finals. Hopefully they will play a spectacular, exciting final serie.

Pacers disappointed a bit in the last game at home, all topscorers were hold under 20 points, the whole team scored only 65 points, Detroit has just more offensive power with Billups, Rip Hamilton, who maybe will nominated for the "dream team", Rasheed Wallace and their tower in defense Ben-2-time-defensive-player-of-the-year-Wallace...
Detroit is playing by far the best defense in the whole League, like AC Milan, and can give the Lakers a good competition!!!

yup thanks man!

Pistons won! 3-2 now. Pacers are probably out now. I'm hoping for a Timberwolves win tonight. That would be something.

I guess the Knicks hopes of signing Rasheed as a free-agent this summer are all but gone now seeing as the pistons look likely to make it to the NBA finals

Oh well......the Knicks will be strong next year

Pistons 4-2 Lakers final

The only reason L.A is where they are is because of one LUCKY shot with 0.4 seconds left, otherwise the NBA's top player Tim Duncan's heroics would have given the Spurs a 3-2 lead and im sure they would have rapped up the series

Anyway......whether its T-Wolves, Pacers or Pistons....plz beat L.A

Minesota hasve to win tonight if they wanna stay in the game and have the final 7th game at their place.

Detroit had a good perfomance last night, I think Rip Hamilon is havin best games of his life in these playoff matches, id really like to see them in finals.


A news bout the Bulls now, as their are tryin to invlove their 3rd pick in a trade together with E-Rob, Curry or Chandler for a decent player like Ray Allen or Sharef Abdur Rahim.

LEts see what happens... as Draft Day comes closer.

I used to be an Orlando Magic fan when O'Neal played there.
But now, I don't use to watch basketball.
I used to play amateur at school, 'till, finally I had a contusion. Which part of the body? The knee. hahaha Nothing serious, but the treatment got me upset. Then I've lost the enthusiasm.
Now, if I have a chance, I play it just for fun.

So ill say something besided that link.

1st pick its defintly goin to be Emeka Okafor, a big guy (compared with Ben Wallace's style) but he is better in offence. Very good shot blocker. Thats what Magic need !! With Grant Hill comin back they will look like this:
PG T. Lue
SG T-Mac
SF G. Hill
PF J.Howard / D.Gooden
C E.Okafor

pretty good lineup for an east team ! Of course this is not for sure cuz T-Mac is sayin that he'll probably leave.


Clippers won the 2nd pick, but its not sure they will draft a big guy like it says in that website. Clippers are sufferin at PG, so Shaun Livingston (tall PG 6-7 foot) probably is the guy they will draft.

Even Bulls at 3rd pick will not pick a big guy, they will probably go for that SF Loul Deng ! (if they dont arrange a trade of their trade as their sayin lately), so that leavs the youngster Dwight Howard at 4th or 5th pick.
Lets say that Howard cant make impact imidiately in NBA, cuz he's still a project but his stats last season were like 25ppg, 15rpg, and 8.0 blocks/game - fantastic stats !


but there is some time left, and everything will be sorted out !

Guys that I predict that will perform good from rookies:
- Emeka Okafor
- Shaun Livingston (whatch out this guy, a tall PG. that makes him block easily other PGs and easily shot over them)
- Ben Gordon (the player that Bobcats said they would like to draft if they can. They belive thay can build their team wish this rookie PG)

Cant say for the others though (not sure), maybe Howard too if he goes in a team where they dont have many tall guys, and gets like 20-25 minutes/game.

The draft will be held on June 24 in New York City.

in the link it says that 94 early entries have applied for the draft, 21 more than last year, 94 players who havent finished all 4 years on college, or even never visited one, straight from highschool to the NBA...

bad examples for early entries/high schoolers are = Eddy Curry & Tyson Chandler (Bulls), Kwame Brown, 1st pick from the Wizards, that were only some of the high drafted youngsters, who still havent adapt or made impact for their team, even though all 3 have improved their game a lot, but after 2-3 seasons...
good examples for early entries = Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, Trady McGrady...

True, Bulls used to trade Elton Brand to Clippers for future 2nd pick overall ===> Tyson Chandler.
And it was a bad move, Brand is far better player, and Chandler in the begginin was condered next KG, but he;s really strugglin, he shows he can rebound and block but not such a good scorer, meanwhile Cury (the yungest player in Bulls history to be drafted) has more minutes and he ender with like 14ppg and 6.5 rpb, which is not so bad but he needs to improve more, is lazy sometimes, and thats why one o these guys will probably be traded this season.

GO LAKERS unfortunately i couldnt watch the game, but Kareem Rush has scored 18 points all from behind the arc, 6 3-Pointers, wow...!!!
Shaq had a horrible hand from the foul line, where he only made 7 out of 20 free throws... Kobe was like always very good too.... Lakers beat the Wolves 96-90...
only Garnett and Sprewell played well for the Wolves, but not good enuff!!

Now Lakers are waiting for the winner of Pistons-Pacers series, and the players have few days more off than the east teams

I like the NBA.

Does anyone know about the next draft? Compared to last season (first 3 picks espcially) i heard its going to be quite poor.

It is quite poor, not really kind of players like Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan or Carmelo Anthony... im not a specialist, coz i dont/cant follow US college basketball, but the names sound not that big like in the last years draft...
that means nothing even one of those players could have a outstanding rookie year, Emeka Okafor, but its true not a draft with tons of Talents like in 1996 or last year...
