I think I might have changed my mind about who the Bulls should take at #1.

On lottery night, I was on the Derrick Rose bandwagon.

But now...I've watched some footage of Beasley...I've listened to a podcast from a guy who who's watched a lot more footage of Beasley than I have, I've heard some reports today saying that Rose might not want to play in Chicago, that he'd rather be in Miami.

And then there's the fact that I thought long and hard about every possible trade scenario I could think of to get a big man, and short of Elton Brand - which would cost a steep price if the Clippers were even willing to trade - none comes close to getting Beasley.

And just looking at Beasley's game-by-game stats from this past season...it 'wow's me more than Rose's game-by-game stats from this past season do. It's pretty sick.

And for the record, I was misinformed about him being undersized for the 4. People had referred to him as a 3/4 tweener and that's why I thought he was undersized...they were saying he was more like just barely 6'8'...but now I see he's probably 6'10' in shoes.

Of course, there is the flip side to all of this: Glenn Robinson also put up big numbers in college. Look how that turned out.

Well that wraps it up.

The GREATkers stole a game from the Argentinean Nat'l team on a good no-call foul and the Beas should go to the Bulls. Awesome.

I'm wondering who the Magic should draft or if they should try and trade up to get a better pick/clear some bench space and cap room.

Why do you hate Rip? He's your kind of guy in that he Doesn't have great athleticism, but he's a great shooter. I love watching him run around screens and catch and shoot.

firstly he's a terrific athlete... just because he can't jump, he can run for days.

largely it's because of the mask... everytime i see him wearing that mask i just want to punch him in the face.

besides that... he's a foul machine. watch him. every play, offense and defense, he commits a foul. honest. watch him. he does.

and lastly, it's your statement that he's a "great shooter." correction... he's a great mid-range shooter. he's deadly from 10-15 feet. when was the last time ya saw him knock down a big three?

but yea... mainly it's the mask.

just so we're perfectly clear... there has been 100 times more contact in the last minute of this celtic/pistons game, without fouls being called, then there was on that brent barry play.

and no one will say shit about the no calls. and they shouldn't... it's the playoffs... stop being a pussy.

The NBA just released an official statement saying that a 2 shot foul should have been called on Brent Barry last night.

So there you have it. Now it's an official ripoff.

And talk about the class of the Spurs last night. Absolutely no one complained about the no call, even though they all knew that it had been a lousy call.

Plus, Crawford is ugly as hell...

They must've spent their energy complaining about every other call. "No calls" decided the outcome of 3 of the games in the Magic-Pistons series. It's the playoffs, shit happens.

Headache, I agree completely about Rip Lector - forearm shove to the defender when he gets the ball every damn time. It's like Reggie Miller gave him private lessons.

So if those with class don't complain about the call, then those without class... ?



And on the serious side, no, it's not a ripoff. Had the foul been called the Spurs could very well have gone on to lose the game anyway. Considering they'd been losing it for the past 4 quarters anyway.

It's a good choice for ESPN to replay that Rip Hamilton piece during halftime where he puts on a Vader mask, because he tried to do a force choke on Ray Allen in the final seconds of the game. MISStons got careless in the first half making them play from behind too much in the second. Turned "the switch" on way too late. Isiah Thomas is rolling in his grave.

GREATkers vs. MELTics finals is drawing near!

Is there anything I can do to entice you to go away? Cash? Recommend a shrink? Whatever it takes.
