2011 NBA Off Season Thread: Draft, Free Agency... Lockout?

So the season is now over...



... and it's time for what should be a very interesting off season, beginning with the draft on thursday night.


frankly i'd be thrilled if the knicks ended up with either jimmer or klay thompson.

I'll be thrilled if the Sixers draft a bag of basketballs as long as they trade Andre Iguodala.

I don't know why the Cavs are so insistent on playing coy with Irving. It's fairly clear that they are going to take him at #1.

If I were them I'd take Williams. Can't go wrong with Irving, but I really like Williams.

It would be hilarious if the Cavs took Williams and Minnesota then took another point guard. I think the Cavs may be thinking that Minnesota would not take Irving on account of Rubio, but I doubt that he would slip past Utah.

A healthy Chris Kaman wouldn't be the worst thing in the world. '06 Clippers frontcourt reunion.

And an expiring contract to boot.

The thing about Iguodala I don't get is his reputation for defense. He got put on Second Team All-Defense and I have no idea why. He's really not a particularly good defender, everyone's just been saying he is for years.

there's rumor of minnesota trading the 2 for steve nash, ironically enough... who would act as a tutor to rubio.

johnny flynn is as good as traded already.
