    I called Kevin Love to the Celtics two years ago. It makes perfect sense and is an excellent way to begin to truly move on from the Big 3.

    While I didn't necessarily 'call it' like others, I always saw Love as a perfect scenario for the Celtics. I really hope we can land him. Easily make the playoffs next year and Heat cant guard big men and Rondo kills them, perfect mismatch

    The Heat have advanced to and have won championships guarding big men.

    Yes, but its the one place to look if you want to beat them. Roy Hibbert was good last year hence why that series went 7 games. Their biggest weakness is down low, if they even have weaknesses

    I won't disagree with this. I was hoping Oden would contribute in some way shape or form but it looks like they're going to have to win spreading the floor and giving LeBron and Wade open running lanes.

    #6. Not too shabby. How in the hell did the Cavs win it... AGAIN?

    I really feel bad for Oden. I thought Miami would set him up with the easiest scenario for him to be productive... the knees said noo..

    Unfortunately, it looks very much like that. The third number 1 pick in 4 years with a 1.7% chance. I'm no conspiracy theorist but it's now difficult to ignore the possibility (especially when you add the #1 pick the Pelicans received).

    It's absolutely rigged. The NBA would love nothing more than to see Cleveland competitive again.

    This is why i can't watch the NBA anymore..between the refs being in the pockets of people and this crap? A lottery? Really? Joke

    Yeah, it's gotten progressively more and more tough. I wanted to give Silver a fair shake, but nothing is changing. The refs have already made their presence felt in both championship series. In game one of Indiana/Miami, the Pacers dominated the free throw battle and the Heat got hosed on a lot of calls and no calls. It was the opposite last night (though the Heat were being more aggressive, that out of bounds call at the end should have been Indiana ball). You can just tell that *SOMEONE* wants this series to go to seven. That's a shame considering it would probably go to seven on it's own without the refs constantly having to get their faces on TV. Joey Crawford is by far the worst.

    In the OKC/SA series, it certainly appeared as if Duncan could probably pull a revolver out of his shorts and shoot Russell Westbrook in the leg without getting a foul called against him.
