  2. It's officially NBA Draft Week! Dave Hardisty and David Weiner discuss the options before the Houston Rockets as they approach the June 26th NBA Draft, holding the #3 pick and the #44 pick. Is it really down to Donovan Clingan and Reed Sheppard? The pair also discuss trade-down possibilities and whether Devin Carter could be intriguing to Ime Udoka. And are the Rockets a darkhorse for a Paul George trade?

    Does Michael Beasley still counts against Suns SC?

    This year he's due 6.2 million by the Suns does it all count against the SC or just part of it?

    Joel Embiid has sent LeBron all kinds of tweets asking him to join the Sixers and this is what LeBron responded with


    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>gave it your all</p>&mdash; LeBron James (@KingJames) <a href="https://twitter.com/KingJames/statuses/485204005690564608">July 4, 2014</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

    losing in the finals isn't exactly losing in the first round.

    LOL Embiid:

    The 7-footer who was drafted out of Kansas third overall by the Sixers on June 27, has been trying to recruit free-agent LeBron James to Philadelphia.

    Embiid made his initial pitch on Tuesday:
    @KingJames hey bro hope you're having a good day...... Want to join us in philly?? Peace
    — Joel-Hans Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) July 1, 2014
    Have a good day guys. Be safe!!! Hope he lets me know what he thinks about coming
    — Joel-Hans Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) July 1, 2014


    So undeterred, Embiid followed up on Wednesday, poking fun at his own tape-delayed reaction:

    Been a day.. still waiting for @KingJames to answer me like (TAPE DELAY GUYS) how can you do that to me? @espn pic.twitter.com/LkeGQLrszQ
    — Joel-Hans Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) July 3, 2014
    I hope i'm not gonna get fined already with those Lebron's tweets is it legal to recruit over twitter @NBA ?
    — Joel-Hans Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) July 3, 2014

    UPDATE 7/4/2014: After three days without a response, Embiid had clearly had enough: The Philadelphia rookie made a drastic move and blocked LeBron James from his Twitter feed, effectively cancelling his social media effort to woo the two-time NBA champ to the Sixers:

    He probably DM'd me but I dont read my DMs so I'm gonna go ahead and block him pic.twitter.com/PunjHSiQRI
    — Joel-Hans Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) July 4, 2014

    And just like, the recruitment is over

    Thought Luol Deng didn't want to sign in MIA for chump change? Wonder what Riley is thinking here? Don't see Luol starting w/MIA unless Lebron is PG.

    Bron to the Cavs? Guess this guy is really putting himself out there.

    Good luck to your professional future.

    IF Lebron ends up going back to the Cavs, I can't really hold it against him. Still, it's a BIG 'if' so we'll see how the week plays out.

    If Lebron goes to the Cavs, they will trying to trade Wiggins and more for Love.

    If we get Bosh I'm happy

    The East is seriously so weak.

    Cavs would go from number 1 pick to number one seed(if Lebron joined).

    In the west, the Cavs might not even make the playoffs(if Lebron joined).

    The Cavs team certainly got talents. LeBron, Erving, and Wiggins would be a new big 3.

    But Gilbert is still Gilbert.

    The Cavs squad with LeBron would be much more talented than the Heat squad with LeBron, unfortunately for Pat Riley and the Heat.

    No it wouldn't. Not even close.

    Kyrie Irving is a big time liability without the ball. He would have to bow down to Lebron.

    Wiggins, you really don't know what you have there.
