    I don’t know how Lakers find enough cash to sign either of those guys.

    yes, it’s geo-locked. Certain states are not being allowed to participate.

    Who do we like for the Saturday slate? Feels like most of Team USA guys are overpriced, but don’t know much about any of the other guys.

    Well, you probably won’t win a GPP playing just the NBA guys, but seems like a worthwhile place to start. I’m sure there’s others, but Jan Vesely is the only one I recognize who never made it in the NBA and went back overseas. He’s not cheap or going to fly under the radar though. For some reason all of Nigera is cheap. I guess it’s because the whole team is NBA bench guys, it’s hard to know who will stand out the most.

    They sign with the Lakers for like 9 million on an MLE contract. Then LeBron pays them 20 million to do a cameo in Space Jam 3.

    I really am having a hard time finding any USA guys I like in the first round. All priced up.

    Im just watching to see what Kevin Durant does next. Becoming the most entertaining professional athlete….I finally realized he is just constantly messing with everyone.

    I would love to see Westbrook in a Laker uniform.

    I think it is more likely they land a guy like Dragic than any of these pipe dreams like CP3, Lowry, etc.

    Some possible trades I was just reading about on CBS Sports. No idea if any of these make sense to do.

    Beal and Bertans to Golden State for Wiggins, Wiseman and 3 picks

    Dame to the Knicks for RJ, Obi, Quickley, Robinson and 4 picks

    Ben Simmons to Portland for CJ, Nasir, and a pick.

    Crowder to the Magic for Mo Bamba and a pick

    Why would Dame want to go to a worse situation than he currently has in Portland?
    The Simmons one seems possible.
    Why would Phoenix or the Magic make the Crowder/Bamba trade? Crowder doesn’t fit Orlando’s time table.
    I know GS in in win now mode, but I don’t think the trade for Beal and Bertans makes them appreciably better. There are only so many basketballs. I would rather utilize the picks if I am GS to get some cheap, controllable talent.

    To me Bucks championship means more than the last two Packers superbowl wins by about 100 X. What do you guys and gals think?

    Well, Packers are perennially good. Several Super Bowls. Bucks had a lot of lean years. Some, couldn’t get over the hump years. First ever title right? So, I imagine it feels more special as a fan.

    Before today, Team USA’s last Olympics loss was in 2004.

    2008, 2012, 2016 they were undefeated.

    I think they make it to the medal round, but I would be shocked if they won a medal. If they do, maybe a bronze.

    Something swirling around the draft rumor mill is Eric Bledsoe and #10 from New Orleans to Memphis for #17. The idea is that the Pelicans clear Bledsoe, while moving back slightly. Grizzlies use some cap space (likely after declining Justise Winslow TO) to move up.
