Kobe's Lakers: This is bull. I expect Kobe's Lakers to be one of the best teams in the NBA this season.
Something to think about: Reading this column made me wonder if something like this wouldn't be a good idea for developing NBA players. As a developmental league, it would have enough prestige to be attractive to promising young hoopsters. It would also have a built-in fan base as Team USA. Sort of like Little League for 18-20 year olds.
Take the best player: This SI.com columnist claims that NBA teams should draft the best player rather than fill a specific need.
Exhibit A: against Maurice Clarett joining the NFL early. As some have argued, why should pro football let immature young jerks mess up its product the way the NBA has.
