    Remaining Cavs Games: Tue 4/16 @ DET, Wed 4/17 vs PHI, Fri 4/19 vs. NYK, Sun 4/22 @ SAS, Mon 4/23 @ MEM, Wed 4/25 vs WAS, Thu 4/26 @ CHI

    Remaining Hornets Games: Wed 4/18 @ MEM, Thu 4/19 vs HOU, Sun 4/22 @ LAC, Tue 4/24 @ GSW, Thu 4/26 @ HOU

    Remaining Kings Games: Wed 4/18 vs SAS, Fri 4/20 vs OKC, Sun 4/22 @CHA, Tue 4/24 @ OKC, Thu 4/26 vs LAL
    Wow this is getting good... I thought for sure NO had 3 on lock down. I really want to be top five I will deal with 6 spot yet be upset with 7. On a side note The bobcats.... Wow, If their pocket aces hold up I will almost be happy they got the #1 pick. However how should I say this?? Go Cavs or... Don't go Cavs! get that 3rd or 4th spot!

    If the Cavs find a way to dig deep and, well, lose every game.. We'd probably land the 3rd spot.

    New Orleans is playing really good right now, I can see them winning a few more games this season.. The Kings are the wild card, but I see them beating Charlotte and likely the Spurs if they rest their big three.

    That Spurs game is key, and our Wizards game is key. If there's one game we will be the favorite, it's against Washington.

    it's too bad Eric Gordon was out so much this year, they would have won 25-30 games this year, easy.

    According to Chris Sheridan: New Orleans Hornets center Chris Kaman has a bruised left tibia and likely will miss the rest of the season, the team announced Tuesday.

    This Grantland article on tanking is pretty entertaining.

    So I'm not sure where their opinion about Thompson comes from? Right now, Tristan Thompson is a better defender than JJ Hickson will ever be.

    My guess they simply haven't seen TT play much, if at all. Not saying TT does have flaws, but Hickson he is not.

    I dont think this Kang character has league pass. If he watched the Cavs for 1 quarter this year he would realize that Thompson is not smaller than Hickson and that he can defend. Grantland is part of the ESPN family. Sloppy Sloppy.

    Maybe that's cause the Kings aren't tanking, this is actually all they are capable of.

    That's now two recent articles from Grantland that do some sort of analysis on Tristan and neither ever mention the defensive side of the ball. The articles are just plain worthless if you are not going to get into the side of the game. Hickson and Thompson are really nothing alike other then having good hops and that they are BOTH 6'9". JJ will never match the level of defense that Thompson is presently displaying as just a rookie. Analyzing defense does mean you actually have to WATCH the two players play and not based your article off some stat sheets or glorified dunk clips. No one who actually spent any time watching them play could miss the differences in defensive prowess.
