    In case you're still missing it, the draft date is literally in the title.

    On the upside, this has motivated me to try a Lakers GM game on 2K17.

    Yeah Butler is a top 10-15 player in the NBA and the Bulls don't get not one on the grasp of reaching that level in the trade just horrible. Worst trade in Bulls history maybe? Still think my Sixers trading AI to the Nuggets for Andre Miller, Joe Smith and two First Round Picks in the next Years draft. Yeah it looks sexy at first hand, but Miller was okay for us and Joe Smith who yeah he did nothing. We had three first Round 1 picks that yeah, could of moved up, but he rather traded away those players if my mind serves me right. I hate you Billy King!

    I don't know how you resign Wade and not keep Butler, giving him away for a Pack of Airheads and a Hot Dog from 7-Eleven.

    We didn't re-sign Wade. He opted in with his $24-million player option because he "had 24 million reasons," as he said.

    Blame the contract originally but the Bulls didn't go actively re-sign Wade this summer. They'll probably buy out his contract.

    Welp. It's time to get my hat behind all of Lavar Ball's antics and support the Ball monarchy. Cant wait for that 2020 or 2021 lineup of Lonzo, LaMelo, LiAngelo, Ingram, Randle. Predicting about 6 championships for Lonzo after that. Possibly 1 before his brothers get picked.

    I love the Lonzo pick as a LakeShow fan. I love UCLA so I wanted Lonzo...really hope the Lakers Management gets control of the Lavar situation though. Now that he has the support of a professional team I hope they can help that situation and get Lavar on a leash.

    I also really hope they can get Lonzo's work ethic going, because that's his biggest issue. I saw him on Jimmy Kimmel though and the dude had like no personality whatsoever. Not sure if it was just that night. Lavar was on there too so obviously all the attention was going to Lavar and not Lonzo, but just seemed like the dude was lacking some major personality. Like I saw an interview with Aaron Judge and the guy lit up my screen with his personality, but Lonzo not so much. Those few things are concerning. High ceiling, low floor. Hoping he pans out.

    Why does it matter if he has a personality?

    That's putting it lightly. At first I was like, "that's not the worst trade in the world..." but then I remembered that LaVine just tore his ACL, Dunn can't shoot and makes Rondo look like Curry in that aspect. Markkanen is whatever. Hoping he unseats Mirotic soon. But that haul in exchange for a top 10 player in the league? LOL, nah.

    Shit is worse than the Taj/McBuckets trade and I wasn't sure that could be topped. I really am trying to think of of any reason to cheer for or support the Bulls next season. I can't think of any at all right now. I'm just hoping the TPups sign Rose now.

    That trade really is unexplainable on a lot of levels, and great for the Bulls as it unclogs their backcourt & brings in an epic talent. I don't understand the Bulls at all. LaVine is awesome if it weren't for the injury though. I read the Suns were offering a Bledsoe/Chriss + 4th pick swap for Butler/16th & I would have taken that way over the Wolves haul.

    Interesting that Boston took Tatum. Guess they know this years long plan is blowing up in their face too with a move like that.

    Grizzlies trade twice for players that won't ever play for us and aren't as good as guys that already won't ever play for us. Cool.

    Once the Suns realized they were getting Jackson at No. 4, they pulled the offer. Bulls should've pulled the trigger on that Tuesday because they wanted Jackson or Fox and at least one would've been there.

    Yeah I don't see how Harden and Paul make this work. You have the whole offense revolved around Harden and we know what Paul can do with the ball. Someone is going to have to give up that ball more than the other. I wonder what Griffin is thinking right now? He's a UFA in 2018 I think and I'm looking around you would think and saying why should I stay here?

    Phil Jackson has been canned too. Thankfully for New York. He should've given Lakers Porzingis beforehand.

    EDIT: They better not take Masai Ujiri from Toronto.

    I wonder how DeAndre feels. They locked him in his own house two years ago to keep him from signing with Dallas. Now they're all leaving him.

    Apparently Paul decided to do this via the money more so than contending. He gets more money on a one year deal with the Rockets rather than holding out a few more days and leaving to a new team. Crazy huh, but Paul with the Spurs could of been amazing Popovich would of made him a better threat than he was with the Clippers because how he runs his team.

    Is that why he waived $2m worth of a trade kicker to allow the trade to go through? Is that why he opted-in to his current deal to make the trade happen, when he could've gotten more money from a max deal?

    This sure doesn't seem to be that motivated by money...

    Clippers did well to get what they did.

    Doesn't he keep his rights to a supermax next summer by signing the extension to his previous deal? He wasn't going to get all the money from the Rockets this summer that he could by resigning with the Clippers, but by "opting in" to the player option I think he delays the supermax offer one year and can keep that on the table next summer with Houston.
