    Based on the Draft history looks like possibly the Grizzlies have a 80% chance of getting the #1 draft pick BUT it will go to Detroit which means Lebron could be a Piston.

    Now seeing this is the Nba Dish, it is an automatic he will be in the Nba.
    Now if Cleveland lands it you think James will demand a trade?

    If the Grizzlies pick is the first, then they get to keep it. The Pistons get the pick if it is anywhere else. So, there's no chance the Pistons get Lebron (unless a team at 1 falls in love with Milicic).

    But, the Pistons probably want Milicic more than Lebron anyway. They're big on big foreigners and are very hot and heavy for Darko. One of their main scouts is Tony Ronzone, who is Mr. Foreign Basketball Scout.

    Actually, the Grizz pick is top 1 protected, and they only have a 35-40% chance of winning the top spot.

    So detroit can't get Lebron unless they trade for him. (or the top pick ends up being not Lebron)

    re: cleveland - I don't think Lebron will be in any position to demand a trade at that point, but stranger things have happened.

    I brought this up a while back but the Pistons only get to have the pick if it is not #1 overall.

    Hmm.......IMPOSSIBLE.

    Lebron will end up in Cleveland, Denver, Clippers, or....one of those 3. It will be interesting to watch how he does in the NBA.

    No mention of LeBron in Toronto ?

    Afterall the Raptors have the 3rd best chance, which is more than the Grizzlies right now
