    Who is this guy? According to NBA website Milwaukee Bucks Jersey #1 was retired in honor of Oscar Robertson in 1974. I thought no one can use a jersey number when it is already retired?

    that happens to be Rory McIlroy, the No.1 golfer in the world, hence, the #1 jersey...

    Digging the new Bucks unis! ;)

    Wolves are going to be exciting next year. Towns/Okafor (to be mentored by KG) - Wiggins - Lavine - Rubio... Nice nucleus.

    I hope the Celtics move up the draft board, I don't see anyone with potential in the mid teens for them to draft...

    Sixers' pick will depend whether Embiid's foot injury is serious or not. I hope they pick Mudiay.

    Very low chance. If he played in the PBA and dominated the local pro league then maybe he do have a good chance of chasing his NBA dream.

    Clippers.

    Probably, the worst name for a team in the league.

    In honour of the team's heritage, they should've gone for a more sailing inspired look ala americas cup.
    I hope they retain the sailing flags, at least.

    I'm a Lakers fan but I think the Lance Stephenson signing is a good gamble for the clippers. They'll be even better if they end up with Paul Pierce.

    Adidas & the NBA are making the most of their current contract.
    ... before Nike stamps its swoosh logo on the team uniforms and apparels in 2017.

    I agree... Maybe if he was part of Gilas, then maybe he'll be in their radars...

    But don't get me wrong, I would love to see him in the NBA.

    "2 over-the-hill superstar SGs in one team" with injury issues. But these are the Lakers. Competition for fans now that the Clippers are rolling may force Laker management to take drastic measures. It's a business after all.

    Finally...

    Phil Jackson points out LBJ's footwork and his fundamental skills... or the lack of it.


    “I watch LeBron James, for example,” he said. “He might [travel] every other time he catches the basketball if he’s off the ball. He catches the ball, moves both his feet. You see it happen all the time. There’s no structure, there’s no discipline, there’s no ‘How do we play this game’ type of attitude. And it goes all the way through the game. To the point where now guys don’t screen—they push guys off with their hands.”He concluded: “It struck me: How can we get so far away from the real truth of what we’re trying to do? And if you give people structure, just like a jazz musician—he’s gotta learn melody, and he’s gotta learn the basic parts of music—and then he can learn how to improvise. And that’s basically what team play is all about.

    The agitation in Jackson’s voice is evident.

    Phil Jackson: LeBron James travels half the time he catches the ball | ProBasketballTalk



    The sad part is...
    I don't think the NBA is listening.
    I doubt if the NBA and its officials would call LBJ's travelling violations.


    They look at the likes of LBJ and they see highlights.
    Nevermind if they travelled or pushed off.


    This is the NBA today.

    ^ agree with you 100%. I can't stand the tolerated dribbling violations (carrying/palming the ball), the extra steps, the clear push offs.. & it's not just Lebron but a few others too. Although I think Lebron is the one who gets away with it the most.. Crab dribble./. Stop hop & step. Poor fundamentals.

    Phil's my favorite coach. But he's also, well, a hypocrite. His boy, our idol MJ, traveled every time he did that spin move from a pivot. And complaining about off-hand push? Ahem, that infamous push-off by MJ of Bryon Russell?

    We traditionalists, including Phil, should take off our rose-colored glasses and view the past as objectively as we do the present.
