    He won't be picked, so I wouldn't worry about it.

    LITERALLY every Mock Draft does not even have him being picked. Your guy must be doing crack rocks before talking to you.

    LeBron is one loss away from losing to Terry Rozier, Al Hortford, a 20 year old, Jaylen Brown, a man bun, and a Morris twin. And he's up there with Jordan? YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

    You guys are not serious with this poo, right? Theo Pinson? Dude has no jump shot. He won't even be Drafted. This thread is so, so, bad.

    Charlotte Hornets 11th Pick 2018 Draft

    He would be worth it, honestly.

    LOL, what's the notion now? I thought the Cavs didn't have any help. LOLZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. This Celtics team is a bunch of role players, and Rookies. Not good at all. Again, if LeBron loses this Series, it will hurt his legacy big time.

    Charlotte Hornets 11th Pick 2018 Draft

    I've never said I wanted that guy once. I did however say I prefer MPJ (Michael Porter Jr), if we were going to make a trade up to the Cavs pick.

    Charlotte Hornets 11th Pick 2018 Draft

    Trade Kemba for the number 8 if MPJ is there. I think Trae will be solid, though.

    ESPN Insider Mock Draft before the Lottery and poo

    Absolutely, you are not though, sir.
  11. 1. Phoenix Suns Deandre Ayton Arizona Age: 19.8 C Height: 7-foot | Weight: 243 Ayton was beginning to answer some of the questions scouts have had about him since high school with a string of dominant performances down the stretch, before finishing the college season on a poor note in an early NCAA tournament exit. Physically, he's one of the most gifted prospects we've seen in the draft in the past few years, and he has an impressive skill level, to boot. Phoenix, the worst defensive team in the NBA, will be right to question Ayton's impact on that end of the floor, but his sheer productivity and overall talent level makes it difficult to not slot him at the top of this class. Starting salary: $8,095,680 2. Memphis Grizzlies Luka Doncic Real Madrid Age: 19.1 PG Height: 6-foot-8 | Weight: 228 Doncic hit a bit of a wall after playing 18 straight months without a break. He still found a way to help Real Madrid qualify for the Euroleague final four and will attempt to reestablish his candidacy as the potential No. 1 pick in the draft with a strong showing in Belgrade later this week. Considering its aging core and financial woes, Memphis will likely be looking to return to playoff contention as quickly as possible. Doncic would be a dream selection for the Grizzlies because he has the size, skill and versatility to fit in well alongside all their existing talent, while also possessing star potential in his own right. Starting salary: $7,243,440 3. Dallas Mavericks Marvin Bagley III Duke Age: 19.1 PF/C Height: 6-foot-11 | Weight: 234 With Nerlens Noel unlikely to be in Dallas' long-term plans and Dirk Nowitzki turning 40 in June, the Mavs will definitely be looking for a frontcourt player to build around. While Bagley has some positional concerns defensively, he would have plenty of room to spread his wings on a team that is sorely looking for scoring punch and can afford to build around his strengths and weaknesses alongside promising rookie Dennis Smith Jr. Starting salary: $6,504,600 4. Atlanta Hawks Jaren Jackson Jr. Michigan State Age: 18.6 PF/C Height: 6-foot-11 | Weight: 240 The Hawks will be in best-player-available mode, but it helps to be able to complement their existing roster with a building block that fits with the surrounding talent. Jackson would be the ideal big man to pair with promising rookie John Collins. The youngest projected first-rounder, Jackson might have the highest ceiling in terms of his ability to affect the game on both ends of the floor. He has enviable physical tools, including a 7-foot-4 wingspan and tremendous mobility. Jackson's ability to space the floor (40 percent from 3 and 80 percent from the line), block shots (5.7 per 40 minutes), switch on every screen and, increasingly, put the ball on the floor from the perimeter makes him an ideal fit for the modern NBA. Starting salary: $5,864,640 5. Orlando Magic Mohamed Bamba Texas Age: 19.9 C Height: 7-foot | Weight: 207 Bamba's rare combination of length, shot-blocking instincts and offensive promise gives him one of highest ceilings of any prospect in this draft. Every team in the NBA is looking for a big man who can anchor a defense, and that includes Orlando, which struggled badly on that end of the floor this year. Starting salary: $5,310,720 6. Chicago Bulls Wendell Carter Jr. Duke Age: 19.0 C Height: 6-foot-10 | Weight: 263 While small forward is a definite position of need, with Robin Lopez and Bobby Portis both entering the final year of their contracts, it also makes sense to think about drafting a big man who complements Lauri Markkanen on both ends of the floor. Carter's feel and versatility are promising in a number of ways. He is a physically mature big man with a 263-pound frame and a 7-foot-3 wingspan, which will allow him to play the center position in the NBA with ease. He is a polished player with excellent hands and touch around the basket and has demonstrated a nice blend of passing, shot-blocking and perimeter shooting, despite being overshadowed at times by fellow big man Marvin Bagley III at Duke. Starting salary: $4,823,520 7. Sacramento Kings Michael Porter Jr. Missouri Age: 19.8 SF/PF Height: 6-foot-10 | Weight: 214 The Kings showed progress this season and appear to have some strong building blocks in place, particularly in the backcourt. The strength of this draft is in the frontcourt, and the Kings will certainly look to take advantage of that depending on where they fall. Power forward is definitely a position of need, and modernizing the way they play in terms of adding more shooting and playmaking will likely be a priority. Porter came into the season with hopes of making a run at being the No. 1 pick in the draft. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to build his case because of a back injury. Porter's size, shot-creation skill and scoring instincts will nevertheless make him a coveted prospect in June. He is a playmaker on both ends of the floor and is just starting to figure out how to put his talent to full use. Starting salary: $4,403,280 8. Cleveland Cavaliers (via Nets) Trae Young Oklahoma Age: 19.6 PG Height: 6-foot-2 | Weight: 176 Cleveland's sweep of Toronto and the renewed chemistry that appears to have been forged between LeBron James and the rest of the roster seems to bode well for their prospects of keeping the NBA's most dominant player. Continuing to stockpile young talent that King James is excited about certainly wouldn't hurt the Cavaliers' pitch, and it just so happens that one of the most talented players in the draft could be sitting here at No. 8. Young plays a huge position of need for this squad, which has cycled through more than a half dozen guard options over the course of the season. If Young is gone, one of the many frontcourt options -- such as Carter, Bamba, either Bridges or Porter -- could also be attractive. Starting salary: $4,033,800 9. New York Knicks Collin Sexton Alabama Age: 19.3 PG Height: 6-foot-2 | Weight: 183 Frank Ntilikina has had some nice rookie moments, but the Knicks are finding out that the long-armed, 6-foot-5 guard seems better suited playing alongside a more dominant ball handler and shot creator who can take some of the scoring responsibilities off his shoulders. Enter Sexton, with his tremendous aggressiveness driving the lane, taking off-the-dribble jumpers and putting defensive pressure on opposing guards. NBA teams have some concerns about Sexton's decision-making and reckless style of play. Fiercely competitive, Sexton has shown enough flashes in the right areas to be comfortably projected as a starting-caliber point guard, with plenty of upside to grow into. Starting salary: $3,708,120 10. Philadelphia 76ers (via Lakers) Mikal Bridges Villanova Age: 21.6 SF Height: 6-foot-7 | Weight: 200 The 76ers have gotten great production out of JJ Redick and Marco Belinelli, but with both players approaching free agency, and their mid-30s, it makes sense to think about drafting a wing who can complement their building blocks of Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Markelle Fultz. Bridges is an easy player to slot on almost any NBA roster, thanks to his multipositional defensive versatility, 3-point shooting and role-player potential. He isn't as gifted a shot creator as you'd like from a top-10 pick, but on this roster, he won't need to be. Starting salary: $3,522,480 Philadelphia will receive the Lakers' pick if it lands at No. 1 or Nos. 6-14 (97.1 percent chance). Otherwise, the pick goes to Boston. We break down the Celtics' options here. 11. Charlotte Hornets Miles Bridges Michigan State Age: 20.1 SF/PF Height: 6-foot-6 | Weight: 226 Charlotte continues to search for long-term solutions at both forward positions and will likely look to add athleticism to what has become a fairly disappointing roster. Bridges is a freakish athlete who struggled at times to make the full-time transition to small forward, but he undoubtedly has potential as a two-way wing who can guard all over the floor and give you enough shooting, ballhandling and passing to get by at one of the most important positions in today's NBA.

    Celtics team still isn't good. Atlanta let Hortford go for nothing. It's backups, and Al Hortford and Jaylen Brown. The Cavs 07 team would matchup well with them. And no, prime LeBron would not need 40+. I know one thing, if LeBron loses this Series to these bum ass dudes, this will hurt his legacy big time.

    You talking about minutes though? Really? That's cool. But, facts are facts. LeBron had help that Series and poo the bed when it mattered. Could've gone up 3-1 and lost. #normalGOATshit

    Kobe's a better jump shooter than LeBron, and I do not think it's close on that one. Larry Hughes averaged 16 ppg, Illgauskas averaged 12 ppg, Drew Gooden averaged 14 ppg. I'm taking the Cavs starting 5 vs this current Celtics starting 5. It's not even close either. Illgauskas would have his way with Hortford inside. Drew Gooden/Morris is a wash. LeBron would torch Tatum. Jaylen Brown and Hughes are a wash. So is Rozier & Snow. This Celtics team is worse than that Cavs team, simple as that.

    And his first game, BIG TIME loss was considered legendary too. Check out these stats: LeBron's game 1 @ Boston in the 2008 ECSF: 12 points 2-18 FG 0-6 3P 10 turnovers A historically bad performance. Also LeBron's career field goal percentage outside of 3 feet is putrid. Kobe's for perspective: And I do not care for Kobe at all. Also, if somehow the Celtics win this Series. They will be the worst team to make the Finals. No All-Stars, backups all over the starting 5. And a Rookie that's not even in the running for Rookie of the Year. LOLZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
