    This is the media talking.. Hyping up the injured "superstar" in the making

    He is a legit shot blocker though, i see a raw Ibaka more than Hakeem

    Jabari seems pretty well-spoken

    I'd be thrilled with James Young if he somehow slides to 25 (like Ford has him)

    The 21st pick is the final piece of the Harden trade. OKC got Jeremy Lamb, Steven Adams and this pick. Let's see what they do with it.

    Just spoke with Milwaukee Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry, who is here, and he confirmed Bucks will take either Jabari Parker or Andrew Wiggins.

    NBA fans are so classless.

    I don't like the Spurs but it was a very well played championship.
    They deserved applause, not boos
