2018 NBA draft update: Luka Doncic just dropped 27 points on Bojan Bogdanovic, Dario Saric, Dragan Bender and the Croatia national-team.
I think about this every preseason.
This is going to be a problem for the rest of the league. A big problem.

Just gonna leave this here ... Cavs with Kyrie Irving ON, LeBron James OFF last season: -120 in 635 minutes.
Kyrie's questionable decisions ranked:
1. Saying the Earth is flat
2. Not wanting to play with LeBron
Kyrie Irving is going to find out Kyrie Irving isn't as good as Kyrie Irving thought
Derrick Rose Negotiations:
Cavs: Come play with LeBron!
Lakers: Come shoot 20 times a game this year and play with LeBron next year!
Dan Gilbert wants to give minutes to a guy* that the two worst franchises in the NBA gave up on twice in an 11-month span.
LeBron just convinced Dan Gilbert the best way to keep him in town after next year is to spend $14 million on Derrick Rose. True King.
That and being tall are the exactly two things they have in common. twitter.com/AltNickRad/sta…
To write this ridiculous "nickname" means you must have never watched at least one of the two guys play.
I was really with this author until he did the dumbest cliche thing ever and compared Danilo Gallinari directly to Andrea Bargnani... twitter.com/mavsmoneyball/…
Interesting read, lots of insightful notes. twitter.com/KeithSmithNBA/…
It's going to be interesting to see what happens with some of these guys still looking for contracts (Noel, Rose, etc.).
Pretty dramatic change year-to-year, the impact of salary cap projections being pretty grossly off heading into last offseason. twitter.com/BobbyMarks42/s…
continue to make moves that may make sense in a vacuum or in a different place record wise but make no sense collectively
Blakeney is averaging 16.7 points and 5 rebounds on 44% from the field and 64% from beyond the arc on 3.5 perimeter shots per game in SL. twitter.com/chicagobulls/s…
Best current NBA rivalries:
Woj vs. Shams
KD vs. Russ
San Antonio vs. Zaza
Knicks vs. common sense
Pop vs. sideline reporters
Lonzo vs. Fox
Many perceived Melo as Phil's rival in NY. But certain insiders thought it was Mills, who was seen as obstructing some PJ initiatives.
And that's how the CBA works. twitter.com/ESPNNBA/status…
I understand why he wouldn't take this. I'm also not sure why anyone thinks (and therefore makes him) more valuable than this. twitter.com/JakeLFischer/s…
You often hear that Wiggins would help a team like the Cavs boost their defensive prowess against teams like the Warriors. Well...
Obviously you can't teach length and athleticism, so they are both in a great position to improve, just haven't as of yet, even under Thibs.
Pretty interesting how much credit Wiggins and Towns get as defenders despite proving the opposite each year. Hopefully see some growth.
Thunder made huge shooting improvements at both 3 and 4 already this offseason without sacrificing much D. Roberson now the question mark.
celtics are still trying to win with a team whose best player is -- no matter who you choose -- a guy you don't want to be your best player.
Maybe the real choice Gordon Hayward needed to make this whole time was the friendships he made along the way.
And Derrick Rose sheds one, slow tear...
I honestly believe if we simulate Ricky Rubio's career 1000 times this would be 4-5 spots from the bottom
1. I've got no stake in GH's choice.
2. Players should make whatever decision they feel best about.
3. I'll be kinda sad if he leaves Utah.
Hoping being paired with the partner of Dr. Dre & co-founder of Beats will up my street cred as I chase minimum contract players twitter.com/BillSimmons/st…
LeBron might only average about 25 mpg next year until the ECFs. It's like everyone's out here trying to extend his dominance.
The Bucks should really be trying to make room for George Hill instead of Derrick Rose.
Lakers have zero incentive to lose any games next year, so putting good vets around young guys without taking minutes is key.
Weird that league that doesn't pay guys to run head first into each other at full speed would be willing to G more $ twitter.com/SportsCenter/s…
Orphan Black is putting together a great final season so far. Still one of the best shows on TV no one talks about.
Imagine having to write a lump sum check to the NBA of $200 million FOR LUXURY TAX
Really want some team to figure out how to use Thomas Robinson as a small ball center. I really don't want that team to be the Warriors.
Conferences really need to be eliminated. twitter.com/KevinOConnorNB…
The Hawks won 60 games two years ago and now they kind of don’t exist. LeBron comes at you fast.
"Best teams" is such a silly conversation to have mid free agency. Most cases you're imagining rosters that exist for days and never play.
This is certainly a distinct possibility, but that's a major assumption and a lot of unfinished products to judge twitter.com/tribjazz/statu…
Most agreed Oladipo’s contract was to large for what he brought, but if OKC doesn’t sign him, it can’t make the PG trade.
Underlying lesson from the Paul George trade: Signing guys to rookie extensions usually works out pretty darn OK.
