    That would suck big time. I'm assuming you know that Memphis owes their pick to Detroit unless its the first overall pick. If your scenario happens then Memphis will have Lebron and Carmelo.

    I hope the first couple of picks go to teams in the Least. I am a small believe of conspiracy theories and am thinking NY will somehow win the Lebronathon.

    Memphis can't move to the East quickly enough!

    It'll have to be a major market, the NBA won't let the revenue LJ will generate go to a minor market or Canada. So we are talking Chicago, New York, maybe Miami. We all know the loto is rigged to move the first pick to the highest revenue possible. Only way he goes to a smaller market is with a recently relocated team like Memphis.

    Why would they rig the lottery for us to land Yao Ming??

    I am not making predictions here but I DO hope that the EASTERN conference teams land the top 3 picks. The last thing the WEST and the ROCKETS need is MORE talent!

    FYI, for those that care, if LeBron goes to a Western conference team you can say goodbye to Francis starting anymore All Star games and pencil in Kobe and Lebron for the next 10 years.

    Hopefully LeBron, Melo and Milic will go to some very deserving Eastern conference teams.

    I personally hope Toronoto gets LeBron. Would love to see Carter and Lebron on the same team.

    One last thing. I hope most of all that the Rockets lottery pick which will be conveyed to Memphis does not get in the top 3!

    If you want a conspiracy, how about this: Stern wanted to be sure that Yao Ming was picked first. Many teams in the running were in sore need of a good point guard. So, Stern made sure Yao went #1 to the one team that already had a top-flight PG, Houston.

    Yeah, I don't buy it either.

    Here's how I hope they fall:

    1. Cleveland (man, they need a break)
    2. Miami
    3. Denver

    If Memphis ends up getting the #1 overall pick, Steve Francis will officially move ahead of Scottie Pippen as "Most Hated Rocket Ever". :)

    1. Toronto (James+Carter= WOW)

    2. Cleveland (They will be very sick) They Prob. trade this pick and player for an impact player>>>Rasheed Wallace

    3. Chi-Town (Carmelo is looking good in Bulls Jersey>>probly the steal of draft)


    If Memphis gets in top three that would hurt big big tyme but I really could see Lebron James in Memphis or Toronto!!

    Why do so many people predict Chicago will be in the Top 3?

    They had the 6th worst record in the league.

    I think if the NBA wants Canada to be an NBA country they will send LeBron North or to Miami, to help out a struggling franchise.

    I say:

    Toronto- LeBron
    Miami- Milicic
    Cleveland Anthony
