I can’t prove it but just something I believe…the entire NBA is rigged.  Knicks getting all the calls in the garden…the absolutely absurd lottery that has no business in sports.  The worst team should pick first but the NBA has to fix it

I mean it was when Donnelly was out there for two years.

The rumor of Knicks getting a frozen envelope for patick ewing, among other stuff. Then there was giving the first pick which was the local choosen one lebron James to cleveland. The league/David stern found a buyer for the new orleans included gifting of the first pick, which was Antony Davis. As a hornet fan I remember he was 10000000000000000x the clear best player and the hornets drafted a role player without a jumper at #2 overall. Imagine Davis on the hornets, he would have changed the loser history for sure. 

 Many lotto felt fixed, or WERE fixed. 

The thing is these smooth brain fans are like wrestling fans, they don't care just have drama/action/entrained/etc,

 

My issue is why would the other owners allow this? Sure money and all, but after billions millions don't matter as much....they want trophies, wins, and bragging rights among other owners. If I was a owner and we had one of those "secret" meeting and they go- "Bas we are giving the clear #1 pick Davis to new orleans and you get the #2 so be happy'. I'd put the team up for sale the nano second after that BS. 

I felt the same, but I left the NBA mainly cause the games were boring and lazy until 2 minutes left in each quarter. All-star games became regular season games. Yes teams/coaches like spurs with pop, Larry brown, and pat Reilly played hard. Then add in Michael Jordan being the worst owner in history, it was easy to leave.

The Los Angeles Lakers offer Dan Hurley $70 million, he declines, and now it’s viewed as a “lowball offer”.

What!?

And now the Lakers are rumored to have James Borrego as their top pick.

Can’t make this stuff up.

I saw that Hurley got a big offer from Kentucky that was worth as much or a million less than the Lakers' offer. He'd have less games, work, and not as many egos to handle if he stayed in college.

I knew Hurley would stay at UConn.  He is a different kinda person in a good way.  Life isn’t about money if you already have plenty of it.  Smart move.
