It looks like Portland, with Mt. Hood in the background.
I think I see some hair way up on the crown and Clyde I believe is shaved, so I think its someone else.

The latest cover of Sporting News is very cruel.



10 years later, luck had better change...

Does anyone think the Suns will actually trade Shawn Marion this summer? I hope they don't, but he seems like the most expendable player at this point and has a massive contract.

If they get Atlanta's pick, I could see it being a possibility.

if they get a pick in the 3 to 5 range? yes... and they should.

Hopefully I'll be changing my tune tonight, but I'd just like to go on record and say the the NBA lottery system is a total joke.

Phoenix has the best shot of having a great draft this year. They potentially have 3 No. 1 picks if the Hawks pick pans out, they could easily use their two bottom 1st round picks to move up to the mid-round/lottery and pick up another guard, maybe Acie Law or my sleeper of the draft, Al Thornton.

They could also package Marion, Marcus Banks (a waste of cap) and the Hawks pick for someone like Rashard Lewis. I don't know.

i love it, i only wish it would go back to the straight ping pong ball system.

last team to miss the playoffs gets 1 ball, next team to miss gets 2, etc. etc.

it does two things... it keeps teams from tanking, and it actually provides an extra event that can provide a lot of drama.

the system the have now encourages tanking more than the previous system, and i think it'll be tweeked slightly going forward.

There's tanking no matter what, let's face it. I don't see where it alleviates that at all.

And the draft itself is fine as the extra event. It's not the NFL draft, but it's something.
