    Also has anyone watched the KOBE - Detail series on ESPN+

    Kobe goes into depth on several basketball topics and some serious deep dive analysis.

    New one this week. On Draymond Green vs the Rockets (Round 2)

    Won’t be that surprising at all. Very good chance he goes to the Clippers if he doesn’t stay in Toronto.

    The Lakers are clearly a mess.

    And obviously the Lakers are not keeping that #4 pick. They will trade it. I bet they’re not even looking at players to draft. They don’t need anymore young players. They need another star.

    With Memphis getting the #2 pick and possibly taking Ja Morant (PG) from Murray State......

    Some rumors that Mike Conley (PG) could be dealt. Still solid in 2018-19 last year 21 Pts/6.4 assists/3.4 Reb. But a very high $32.5 cap hit next season.

    Would have to be a team looking for veterans in win now mode.

    Here is a rumor going around..... What do Laker fans think of Beal? They would have to add some salary to this deal as well....

    Los Angeles Lakers Get: Bradley Beal, No. 9 pick

    Washington Wizards Get: Brandon Ingram, No. 4 pick + another player (salary)

    Lakers are under the cap so I'm sure that'll work for them without adding on players. No idea why the Wizards would need to add more salary to that. Beal is a nice player. I think the Lakers would do that in a second.

    Yeah, he did that a awhile ago. The president of Tukey declared himself president for life. Another dickhead dictator. He can't go back unless he wants to be locked up or killed.

    I'm sure an exception will be made in his case, if needed.

    We have been talking about it for weeks here though. Bottom 3 teams (NY, Phx, Cle) only had a 14% chance at #1. Chicago 12.5%, Atl 10%, ect....

    It was to de-incentivise tanking somewhat. Previously the worst team had a 25% chance at the #1 pick. Yes, tanking will never go away, but this sure mixes it up.

    It also got big tv ratings and huge buzz afterwards. Hell...... more of the big talk shows are talking about the draft lottery then the actual game last night.

    Another success for the NBA. They are trying to make the league a 365 day league (like the NFL), not just popular during the season.

    You can see which team had what odds for the #1 pick and getting into the Top 5 here: http://www.tankathon.com/
    Yeah, they've changed the lottery so much over the years this flew by me.
    I don't see it stopping tanking. It's still better odds being in the top three than there is moving up 8 spots.

    LOL. Yeah, they finally figured out what the NFL has known of years. It can only go so far though. They can have March April, May and June. After that it's football time till March. Fantasy Football practice starts in July.

    I think we can attribute the big ratings to Zion and millions in NYC watching. When someone like Phoenix has #1 next year, and no Zion, those ratings are dropping.

    Na, it's more than just those three. Like Darrin said, Hunter out of UVA is pretty good. There's some guards out there as well.
    This might be another decent draft.

    I think they have to take Morant. His game will translate instantly.
    Don't know how they deal Mike, though. Man, his agent is a rock star!

    One of my customers (who is a huge sports fan) told me during this year's NCAA tournament that Morant has the potential to be the next Kobe Bryant.

    What????

    No talk of the BROOK LOPEZ GAME!....haha....

    I guess the Raptors were not going to let Giannis beat them. Raptors also sucked in the 4th quarter (except Lowery), damn....they blew their chance to steal one.

    ++++++++

    On a side note..... Lakers could sure use a 7 footer that can hit 3s from outside like Brook Lopez........

    I don't see many direct comparisons to Kobe? Really you can't put the Kobe comparison on anyone, he is one of a kind.

    JA Morant looks like a super quick Point Guard. 6'3" 175. More pass first right now with some athletic scoring to the rim. Great ball handling. His outside shot and strength/toughness are still developing.

    Kobe was a 6'6" score first Shooting Guard. Top 10 all time player.

    Are you just talking intangibles? Killer instinct?
