    Including Zion....

    Marc J. Spears@MarcJSpearsESPN
    Zion Williamson was QUICKLY whisked out of the room after Pelicans were announced the winner of the draft lottery. Source said the former Duke star was rooting to go to New York, but now is going to New Orleans








    Exactly what the Pels deserve for what they pulled on both AD and LAL at the trade deadline. Their new star also doesn't want anything to do with them. Griffin obviously wasn't there at that time, so its a bit unfair to him. But Gayle Benson and Mickey Loomis have to eat this shit sandwich.

    He literally did a 5-7 minute interview for ESPN in the same room.

    Yeah, he apparently has the best jump shot in the draft.

    One tidbit from Celtics assistant GM Mike Zarren - the 14th pick came within one ping pong ball of landing at No. 4.





    Lol And Boston was also denied Memphis' pick. Ainge probably had another heart attack. Oh and Terry Rozier wants out of Boston.

    Only logical conclusion from Spears' tweet is that Zion was brought back into the room after exiting.


    Natalie Weiner@natalieweiner
    anyone who can see the way alvin kamara lives should not be sad about the prospect of being a beloved young star in new orleans




    Maybe Zion will come around on the idea of playing in N.O.? But it seems the secret is out. Like any other sane person, he wanted N.Y. over N.O.

    Windhorst says the Pels still don't want to make a deal with LAL, still would rather AD go east. If he's accurate, this is on Loomis and Gayle Benson.

    That said, most guys of AD's stature do end up in the opposite conference by trade. Root against the Knicks and Bulls. Likely the only teams out east we should fear he'd stay with beyond next season

    In addition -

    Just reported that Gayle Benson is the one that doesn't want AD going to the Lakers..bitch that doesn't even care about the Pelicans at all. All she cares about is the Saints.

    Mickey Loomis, Benson's top lieutenant, empowered David Griffin to make the best trade possible - " no handcuffs " - otherwise Griffin wouldn't have taken the job.

    So that's that, I guess. We're back in. Lol

    Last night's lottery may finally be the thing that kills Stephen A.

    All things considered, mainly the Rambis/shadow owner shenanigans and constant leaks, LAL stumbled into a legitimate head coach and the 4th overall pick in the draft. Basically how the offseason has begun..in success. So fuck Gayle Benson..that's why the media is off and running with Zion's distaste for the Pelicans.

    Meanwhile, we're just gonna Mr. Magoo our way back to glory over here @ LAL, it seems.

    So after the league's victory over tanking yesterday, they're now looking to move up the start of free agency a bit. Feels like they know what they're doing. NBA offseason overshadows anything going on in June/July..the NBA trade deadline just KO'd the Super Bowl. I don't know how you can improve on the drama that the offseason brings, but we'll see what this does. They're tired of the all nighters, I guess and maybe that's the only thing here? The change will be enforced this offseason.


    At his annual news conference at the Las Vegas Summer League in July, NBA commissioner Adam Silver said such a change was likely to happen.

    "In terms of when free agency begins, I've not only heard from my friends in the media, but as I get older and the people I grew up [with] in the NBA get older, I think we're all tired of all-nighters," Silver said. "What I've heard from, again, several of my colleagues at teams are, does this really need to be at midnight? I think that's something that we'd need to find agreement on with the players' association. But I think we could change for next year.

    The allnighter is what creates the chemistry between the executives and media that leads to the moments of anticipation that build the type of dramatic tension that we consider quality entertainment.

    Garland is a great fit for the Lakers. Can really shoot it and score. Can hide him next to Lonzo defensively. Garland or Culver if we stay put at #4.

    Garland is drawing Lillard comparisons
    Don't mind if we do
    Definitely need another dynamic guard, but especially one that can play down the stretch in the 4th quarter..make free throws if he's sent to the line

    Right on target. Unlike a Lonzo FT.
