    NBA Draft Lottery

    Pretty lucky bounce of the ping pong balls for Chicago.

    Bulls fans...you're on the clock. Beasley or Rose?
    Heat up next and then the T-Wolves.

    T-Wolves kinda get the short end of the stick, there is a pretty good drop off after the first two picks

    Yeah, Freddy didn't bring them enough luck. Who is after those two? Bayless? Lopez? Mayo? Not exactly can't miss superstars.

    Re: NBA Draft Lottery

    Hmmmm... Franchise power forward or point guard?? The Bulls already have Hinrich at the point and Drew Gooden & Joakim Noah at PF. I guess they need to decide if it's best to draft by need or potential stardom. (Maybe they could get both with Beasley. But for some reason, I'm not convinced he'll be as dominant at the next level.) Maybe they'll trade the pick... Should be interesting...

    Re: NBA Draft Lottery

    Rose, Beasley was just bigger and stronger than the college players. Rose is the safer pick. Kirk H. sucked last year, he will not be in a Bulls uniform next year.

    Re: NBA Draft Lottery

    You guys are nuts, there is no way Beasley is not the #1 pick. The guy is incredible, and has so much potential. Rose is great, and will be a solid #2, but Beasley does everything.

    Re: NBA Draft Lottery

    think maybe Dantoni (sp?) is rethinking that Bulls offer about now?

    Sounded like he was very excited about Rose, called him the next Steve Nash

    Typical outcome for the T-wolves. They have to have the worst track record in terms of lottery drawings. They almost always end up below their seeded spot including the times that they have had the most chances. The only time that they ended up as high as 3rd, they wasted the pick on Laetner.

    It sucks not getting Rose, but this way I don't have to cheer for Beasley.

    That is true, I hope the T-wolves can start to turn around their draft record. Things haven't been good in the past, especially that whole Joe Smith things

    Based on percentages, weren't they supposed to get the third pick this year, which is what they got???

    Nice to see Freddy though.

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers
