    How protected is the 2nd first round pick that the Knicks get? I don't love the deal for either team but I would give it to the Knicks slightly as I like DSJ and you never know with KP's injury.

    I have to say I think that the East All Stars were spot on. I saw a few people suggest Andre Drummond get a bench spot - it hasn't been deserved.

    For the West there were a few debatable selections. I would have liked to have seen Luka get a spot but you can understand why Aldridge, Klay got selected instead.

    Where does everyone expect the Brow to go?

    I answered my own question, the second first rounder in 2023 is top 10 protected.

    I'm not certain about that. I know the Rich Paul link will made Lakers a popular favourite, I just don't see it mainly because I don't think the Lakers have a good enough player to give back to the Pels. When I say good enough, I mean right now, not on potential. Perhaps a 3 team trade could help make it happen.

    How about:

    NOP
    CJ McCollom
    Kyle Kuzma
    Ivica Zubac

    LAL get
    Anthony Davis

    Portland get
    Brandon Ingram
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope


    Portland
    Dame-KCP-Ingram-Aminu-Nurk

    Pels
    McCollom-Jrue-Kuzma-Mirotic-Randle

    Lakers
    Lonzo-Hart-Lance-LeBron-Davis


    Throw in a pick if you think it's terrible for any team.

    Is it really though? They've essentially traded away porzingis as a sweetener for a salary dump. Getting only Denis Smith and picks is kinda meh imo, surely you aim to get more for such a promising young player, though obviously injured.

    I don't think it'll matter much as long as they get two big free agents,

    Porzingis is great but a little overrated, IMO, and I rate DSJ higher than most. Porzingis also seems like a bit of a headcase, though that could be nothing more than rumour.

    First round picks are worth their weight in gold right now, an unprotected one is basically unheard of. The Mavs might be good in 2021, they might not be. They essentially have two players for next season and we don't even know if one of them will be good, or willing to stay. The recent lottery reform helps their chances as well. A second one, even with top 10 protections, is a big sweetener.

    In any case it's quite obvious that Porzingis was not going to stay there. He was gonna take his qualifying offer (another sign of him being crazy, that is literally burning money) and then leave as a UFA. Nobody out there was going to give them more than two first rounders, especially an unprotected one. If I had any faith in the Knicks ability to draft (I have zero) I'd be all for this trade. It's a huge risk from Dallas, mortgaging their ability to get better through the draft for a player who hasn't seen a court for 12 months, and won't for close to 20 months if reports are to be believed. Guys of Kristaps size don't exactly have a great history with leg and lower body injuries, either.

    Yeah that's a really bad trade for Portland. If they're trading McCollum for anything in a Davis trade it's in a package for Davis himself.

    2020 free agent class is looking pretty slim. This off season is gonna setup the league for the next few years

    it's going to be a lot more open and unexpected than in recent years...that should hopefully make for many exciting contests...

    Playoff predictions :

    GSW v Clippers : Warriors in 5

    Nuggets v Spurs : Nuggets in 7. This one is definitely the most likely big upset of the round but denver's home court should be enough.

    Blazers v Thunder: Thunder in 6. Would've liked to see Portland with Nurkic, obviously.

    Rockets v Jazz : Rockets in 5. Pretty much the worst possible match up for Utah imo. Gobert getting switched onto Harden/CP3 will hurt badly


    Bucks v Pistons : Bucks in 5. Would've been tighter with a fit griffin but now they probably get stomped by giannis.

    Raptors v Magic: Raptors in 5

    Sixers v Nets: Sixers in 6. This looks like a potentially really fun series.

    Celtics v Pacers: Celtics in 6. Could've been the best series of the round if the pacers had Oladipo but meh.

    Playoff predictions :

    GSW v Clippers : Warriors in 4 (all the games will be close but...

    Nuggets v Spurs : Spurs in 7. Not counting out Pop

    Blazers v Thunder: Thunder in 5. No Nurkic, No fun

    Rockets v Jazz : Rockets in 6. Harden scrapes Rockets through in brutal series


    Bucks v Pistons : Bucks in 4. Don't see them matching the Bucks firepower at all

    Raptors v Magic: Raptors in 5. With Magic winning game 1

    Sixers v Nets: Sixers in 6. Looks like a banana skin for the sixers

    Celtics v Pacers: Celtics in 6. Could've been the best series of the round if the Celtics had Smart
