Id gone pretty quiet on NBA news after the draft, but man am i jacked seeing 'sheed going to the C's. Not a bad line-up, whether he comes off the bench, or starts at C for Perkins.

I am still hoping Big Baby doesn't get a better offer, he really came of age in the finals. Marbury, Moore and Powe look gone. Danny Ainge said they would re-assess Powe once he recovers from surgery.

Big season coming up for the C's, if Rondo kicks on and shows the form he did against the Bulls in the finals more often, the big 3 may just become the big 5! Nice deep roster too to back up the stars with Scal, TA, Perkins, House and even Walker, Pruitt and Giddens are looking like kicking on this year.

Notice Portland didn't play Pat Mills in the summer league... maybe the C's will pick him up as backup to Rondo; Lester Hudson is a weaker option IMO

Brian Scalabrine could really kick in this year, too.

I want to discuss Allen Iverson. He is not signed yet and I can't figure out who will sign him. He showed last year that in a team oriented system, he did not know how to fit in. I think the NBA is going back to that team idea and AI will have to figure it out. I know Kobe runs the show in LA. LeBron and Wade do too. But Iverson is not Kobe and LeBron and Wade haven't won in that system yet.

I don't know, I just wonder where he'll end up, will he start and how much will he get paid?

I like Iverson, but where can he go and just fit in?

Contract year! I'm expecting no less than 15 and 8 from the guy. In seven minutes a night.

He'll be competing with Matt Bonner as the fiercest ginger in the NBA.

Iverson's too stubborn to adjust. Trust me on that. He's done. He'll probably sign somewhere and be on the outs within the year.

I could see him going off to Europe for a year or two, possibly finishing his career out there.

If he gets no offers, that'll probably happen.

He's not a stupid person, he's just really, really fucking stubborn.
