    Skip has never let facts and logic get in the way of a good argument.

    Fake Twitter accounts are just an occupational hazard for professional sports talkers now. I'm still all for anything that embarrasses Skip Bayless but he's not the first one to get fooled.

    After getting a little lucky putting $$ on Toronto to win it all before they got Kawhi last year ( I ended up gambling on about 1/6th of the league so it's not that impressive), I decided to try my luck with the Bucks and Clippers next year. Even if Kawhi sticks in Toronto, I think the Bucks have a good shot to get past them. The Celtics are in disarray and Philly sold out to win this year and wasn't good enough. Plus their big fella has to stay healthy. If Kawhi goes to LA, who can really win the East other than Milwaukee? The Pacers kind of interesting as a long shot.

    Yep. Some terrible contracts out there for point guards. Conley's was bad. CP3's from last summer is really bad. John Wall's might be the worst ever. Kyle Lowry is hella overpaid but at least he has a ring.

    Milwaukee needs to resign a lot of their roster, and will probably lose a couple guys. I don't think the bucks are going to be quite as potent next year.

    Durant 12th
    Oladipo 40th
    Draymond 50th
    Andre Iggy 57th
    Ben Simmons 115th
    Jayson Tatum 117th
    Luka 120th
    De'Aaron Fox 134th
    Trae Young 135th
    Buddy Hield 147th

    Imagine Jimmer and Steph at the two guard spots (while Klay is out hurt) in GS. Endless range!
