Allocations Aplenty!

Well, we've already got the big news out -- Blake Ahearn gets called up to the Spurs. Spurs win. Coincidence? No. Since cuts probably won't be made for a couple days in the D-League camps, we'll...

Big Game Blake

It's late and I'm tired, but I wanted to get this out there, so this will be quick!  As has been discussed for quite sometime, Blake Ahearn is an NBA player. You know it, I know it, why doesn't...

And It's Over...

Well, the draft is over and went pretty much as planned.  I was most surprised that Marcus Malone lasted until the last round and that players like Derrick Dial and Mike Peeples, guys that the team...

Looking At Tonight

It looks like this could be a pretty exciting draft with quite a few former NBA guys and guys that were in camp this season.  Here are some of the top players: Chris Richard -- Surprising cut by...

Alright, now we know what teams have which players coming back.  Frankly, I'm a little excited.  Here are my quick thoughts.. More likely coming once the final player list is out. First off, looks...

Steven Hill

Steven Hill, the man who I thought was destined for D-League greatness, was signed by the OKC Thunder.  Good for him, bad for the D-League.

Deadline Is Looming..

+

I've heard the deadline to get in the draft is tomorrow, Wednesday, at 5 p.m., so there are still a lot of good players that could enter the draft.  Last year, I believe that the majority of the...

This Week is Getting Faster...

+

Today the D-League has put out a post on some of the players in the pool labeled "Top Prospects".  If this is any indication, the D-League is going to be old.  I'll give a run down of some of the t...

Seriously.. Can We Speed This Week Up?

+

So, three days until Friday and not too much new information coming to me that can actually come out.  I guess we'll look at some other things that can affect the draft, and since nothing is out on...

Taking a page from the Nightmare Ant's Boss, Mr. Jeff Potter himself, today I've decided to look at what teams might look like regarding guys that could be coming back this year.  For this, I...

Jeff Potter's Thoughts On Last Years Draft

Apparently Mr. Potter had a look at my look back at last years and decided that he would do the same (Correct me if I'm wrong).  On his blog over on NBA.com, he took on the task of dissecting the...

Looking at the CBA Draft

No, the NBA hasn't gotten their stuff together and decided to re-draft the Collective Bargaining Agreement to help teams out and let them allocate injured players on assignment or take away the...

Down Go the D-Leaguers

Did the NBA make a mistake? Only 6 players from the D-League last year have made an NBA roster.

Ridiculous.

Blake Ahearn, the best basketball player to not have a guaranteed contract going into the NBA season, is still this way, as he was just released by the Timberwolves.  Hopefully the Timberwolves did...

Ahearn Wins Games. Period.

Tonight, I went to the Timberwolves-Nuggets game tonight in Bismarck, North Dakota.  As expected, Blake Ahearn did what he does, close out games.  Tonight, however, it wasn't from the line.  Ahearn...

Along with Matt, the Timberwolves people in charge of their website also apparently have a mancrush on Blake.  After their game in Toronto, the Timberwolves main page on their website had the...

Now that we know the draft order, and Matt's thoughts on how ridiculous the process is, lets look at how important the draft even is. In most sports, a good draft can turn a team around, but in...
