It must be hard being a Sacramento Kings fan. [URL=http://grantland.com/the-triangle/boogie-cousins-kings-karl-lightning-round/]http://grantland.com/the-triangle/boogie-cousins-kings-karl-lightning-round/[/URL]

Love opts out. I think he is going to be a Laker. Maybe even Portland if they can't re-up LeMarcus Aldridge. Love's a west coast kind of guy.

Not really news, it's been common knowledge for a while.

Love wants to win, none of those teams are title contenders even with K-Love. If he leaves, it's probably a sign and trade to another contender since the Cavs may be more interested in keeping Tristan Thompson, and they can pay K-Love the most.

I would be extremely shocked if K-Love went to the Lakers. Extremely.

He doesn't fit in Cleveland. He became a 7 foot jump shooter (abeit a good one) and isn't the inside presence he was before. The Cavs should have kept Wiggins.

Agree to disagree. He didn't fit in right away, but started to hit his stride at the end of the season, and was having a great series against Boston in the playoffs until that jackass pulled his arm out of the socket.

EDIT: With that said, I wouldn't be super surprised if he left, but I don't expect the Lakers.

He wants to win. Main reason he left Minny was because he can't carry a team to the playoffs on his own. Let's face it, 40 year old Kobe isn't bringing that trainwreck deep into the playoffs even with Kevin Love...the West is too good, and Love knows it. I'd be less surprised if he went to Boston. I think people are overplaying the West Coast thing.

I hope Russell doesn't end up as a Knick. He would be doomed to obscurity.

He might not be the most dominant athletic person, but he's going to be a long term solid NBA player.

Well it looks like the Knicks drafted a madeup player.

It still kind of makes me chuckle that the Knicks drafted a guy who looks like the next Andrea Bargnani. Booing the guy wasn't very classy though.

The problem is that Europeans in the NBA, in general-****ing suck. Only three Euros drafted in the lottery have made it to an all-star game: Marc and Pau, and Dirk. Some analysts say he's more Dirk than Darko, but I'm skeptical. I don't think Hedonja will be very good either, probably because his nickname is "Croatian J.R Smith", which sounds like a disaster. Let's take a look at European NBA lottery picks since 2000, shall we? 2014: Dario Saric-Ruling still out, hasn't even played an NBA game 2013: None(Smart!, although The Greek Freak and Dennis Schröder appear to be good players, however, they aren't white Euro stiffs :-P) 2012: None(Smart!!) 2011: Enes Kanter-A bust thus far, more or less Jonas Valančiūnas-Not quite a bust, but not a great player for being drafted 5th overall Jan Vesely-LOL Yikes! 2010: None(Smart!!!) 2009: Ricky Rubio-Wow! A decent player! But he's Spanish, so he hardly counts :-D.

2008: Danilo Gallinari-Not worth the sixth pick 2007: None 2006: Andrea Bargnani-Uh yeah. Thabo Sefolosha-Not bad! 2005: Fran Vazquez-Never even came over to the NBA Yaroslav Korelev-Who?

Well now they have Kobe, D'Angelo Russell and Julius Randle (who missed all of last season, which assisted the train-wreck). I think with Love they are at the very least a playoff team, even in the West. And Russell and Randle will both be around for a while as well.

Yeah, they're a playoff team with love. But my post said they aren't going deep in the playoffs. And even healthy, I still think that's true. Spurs will improve, Rockets, Clippers, Grizzlies, Golden State...all better than the Lakers with another great player.

    • I believe I heard Joe Rogan talk that some MMA fighters use it during training. Not heavy use, but a lower dosage, and there seems to be benefit. I can't remember his exact quote on it, but I believe it was about marijuana since he is big on its legalization.   
    • No idea. Guess we have to wait and see. It's probably my favorite comic of all time. Haven't read it in a while, though, probably going to do it again now with the show running. Every time I re-read it I catch something I missed the last time. There were subtle details and clues explaining the setting. I didn't catch everything and some stuff I felt might have been shown for a reason (like the picture in the chief's closet as he was getting into his uniform) I didn't understand the significance of. Honestly the only thing I didn't like was that weird comic book block lettering Oklahoma! quote they used as a transition in the opening scene. The network kind of ruined that show by making it run longer than the showrunners intended, didn't they? My memory on it is a little hazy, but I remember that being a factor, and I believe they were writing the show as they went along that made it the convoluted mess it ended up being. My guess is that it's a byproduct of the event created by Ozymandias. Maybe they'll explain it more during the season. He's a British actor known for being the voice of Scar in The Lion King (1994)  I've been trying to avoid reading spoilers about the show, but my best guess is he is playing Adrian Veidt (Ozymandias). There was a newspaper headline in one of the scenes that said "Veidt Confirmed Dead" or something to that effect, so I have no idea how it all goes together. Seems to me like he's the same character. He didn't get caught. The US won the Vietnam War in the Watchmen world and it won Nixon a lot of popularity. He was still president during the events of the comic in 1985. That's Dr. Manhattan. He's a central character in the Watchmen. Not sure what his role will be in the series, if any. That explains a lot.
    • Buckeye... will you be there to explain to my head pro why there's a chalkline on his practice putting green?  😊
    • I'd be curious to know what the performance enhancing benefits of marijuana are. I am absolutely stupid, anxious, and 100% athletically uncoordinated under the influence of marijuana, so I can't imagine playing golf in this state. Of course, this varies from person to person. Aside from coffee, I don't enjoy the effect of any mind altering substance, so I rarely partake. However I don't have anything against those who choose to use legally or illegally, and at my home course I see plenty of people puffing on joints, taking whiskey shots, and then some. I also don't have any confidence in the anti-doping agencies to regulate use of PED in any sports, but I believe professional athletes are responsible for understanding the rules of their organization and adhering to them, even if the rules are dumb.
