Throw in a core of decent young players including Brook Lopez, Devin Harris, and Terrance Williams, and you might be looking like a very smart man. Then again what team wouldn't experience a turn-around if Lebron joined them.

The t-wolves are in a great position to trade one of their big men (Jefferson or Love) and get Demarcus Cousins to play center for them. I like the Timberwolves in the upcoming years if their front office could get their head on straight.

The FO is exactly the reason i can not get behind the T-Wolves. Their GM seems to just enjoy wheeling and dealing and outsmarting everyone. Fact is the only person he outsmarted was himself. They passed on CURRY. I mean if they wanted two PG's i would have rather had Jennings and Curry. Not only that they traded Ty Lawson to the Nuggets. Last years draft by them boggled my mind. But if they take Evan Turner the Wolves will be much improved on the wing. Last year was the year of the Point Guard i think this coming year is the year of the BIG MEN. Centers and Power Forwards out the wazzoo.

Reminder: Draft Lottery tonight on ESPN at 8 pm. I look at this draft class and besides the 2 at the top, none are can't-miss prospects.

I'm hoping for the Nets to get the #1 overall pick. They can make a turn around with the #1 overall pick, their young core, and money to spend in the off-season.

Sucks that the 'Cats don't have any picks this year. Might not be too many "can't-miss" players, but adding some more young talent never hurts. Then again, we did pick DJ Agustin over Brook Lopez.....

The NBA looked out for the Wizards after the Arenas debacle and aftermath. They needed a reboot after getting rid of their players. The fix was in! Jersey got fuged.

1. Bullets- John Wall

2. 76er's- Evan Turner

3. Brooklyn Nets- Derrick Favors

With Gilbert Arenas playing SG and Wall at PG the "Wizards" are looking dangerous.

I love Evan Turner's game. Have had a soft spot for the 76er's since the AI days.

Telling you the Nets will be a playoff team in their new stadium.

Some Video Interviews:

John Wall

Part 1:

Part 2:

Evan Turner (Turner has a speech impediment because of an overbite when he was young)

Also here's a article on his struggles as a kid. One of his best friends committed suicide 5 years ago and Turner was also hit by a car at the age of 3: http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/columns/story?columnist=oneil_dana&id=4683505

Derrick Favors (sounds dumb as rocks)

Wes Johnson (my favorite player in the draft. He sounds like he has a good head on his shoulders and he is one of the more articulate ones)

Part 1:

Part 2:
