2007 NBA Draft Grades
by Robert Ferringo - 06/29/2007
Is there a bigger gamble within the sporting world than the NBA Draft? There's really no way to know which one of the players selected is going to flake out on you. Who's going to beat his wife? Who is going to get busted with the biggest bag of herb? Or who is going to change his name to Bison Dele and then get murdered by his older brother out at sea?

Possible NBA Trades
by Trevor Whenham - 06/26/2007
Heading into the NBA Draft this year the most interesting question could be whether Oden or Durant will go first, or whether one of the huge names that may or may not be available gets traded. Both questions are open to debate and interpretation. On the trade front we certainly don't know much, but we have learned a couple of things.

Oden Clear-Cut No. 1 Pick
by Robert Ferringo - 06/12/2007
Let's just say that the last five minutes of the Sopranos season finale were infinitely more suspenseful than the National Basketball Association is these days. The Prize of the Present, the NBA Championship, is all but a formality as San Antonio toys with Cleveland. And the Prize of the Future, the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft this month in New York City, is just as much of a blowout.

Ten Potential 2007 NBA Draft Sleepers
by Robert Ferringo - 06/06/2007
I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the Cleveland Cavaliers fans weren't doing back flips last June when their front office took Daniel Gibson with the 42nd overall pick in the 2006 NBA Draft. But when the late-blooming rookie dumped in 31 points in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals against Detroit last week I think it's safe to say that the Cleveland front office - and it's burgeoning fan base - was feeling pretty good about their sleeper pick.

Foreign Players in the NBA Draft
by Trevor Whenham
Whether you like it or not (and a lot of people really don't), foreign-born players play an increasingly large role in the NBA. You only have to look as far as this year's finals to confirm that. Each team has two non-Americans starting - Tony Parker and Fabricio Oberto for the Spurs, and Zydrunas Ilgauskas and Sasha Pavlovic for the Cavs. Both teams also have an import that they rely on heavily off the bench - Manu Ginobli and Anderson Varejao - and Beno Udrih plays a small, but important role for the Spurs. It's far from a stretch to say that neither team would be where they are based solely on their domestic talent.

Ten Potential 2007 NBA Draft Busts
by Robert Ferringo - 06/06/2007
Pervis Ellison. Chris Washburn. Sam Bowie. Michael Olowokandi. The list of busts in the NBA Draft is a long and hysterical jaunt through NBA history. Who could forget the cringing faces of Philadelphia fans when their 76ers took Shawn Bradley No. 2 overall back in 1993? Or what about the last 15 years worth of drafts for Atlanta and New York? Or, digging deeper, how about the dreaded LaRue Martin pick by the Blazers back in 1972, a selection that could have sunk the young franchise before it even got off the ground?
