Bold Predictions

Do you guys think any of these are pretty possible/impossible? Which ones are great ideas/bad ones?

1. CB4 goes to the Wizards- Crazy right? Well Wall and Arenas makes it attractive, they can give 1 max contract and have Blatche as well to either play with or used in a sign and trade

2. The sixers draft Turner and trade Iggy for Jefferson and a filler - Doug Collins recently said he wants Young at the 4 and Iggy at the 3.. Meaning he needs a 2 and they will take Turner. But when they realize they need a center and have to make a choice on ET or Iggy they may choose to keep the young guy.

3. Shaq goes to Miami - Jermaine is not going back and whoever they get to come with Wade will be a PF. Shaq is going to go for cheap and sign with a team that can get him another ring. This may be the team

4. OKC trades the 21st and 32nd for Houston's 14th - They love Orton and want to move up. No coincidence, even if he isn't there they still have many options at 14. Houston is rumored to want to move up for Cuz or down for value

5. Patterson falls into the 20's - what the title is

6. LAC picks Henry - He would play 3 and is having good workouts. Little expect him to go this high but I wouldn't rule it out. This means Aminu isn't there or they pick him over Aminu

7. Joe goes to NJ - Twill and him would be there 2/3 , Prokorhov will get someone

8. Childress goes back to ATL after JJ leaves - what the title says

9. NYK doesnt get LBJ, Wade, Amare or Bosh and resigns Lee for near max money - The NYK nightmare

10. Indy moves out of the 1st and gets Collison - GSW would get the pick in this type of deal ( http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=289y4tf )

i think you list is cool....

i think you list is cool.... One gripe lol, but i understand its "bold predictions"

2. The sixers draft Turner and trade Iggy for Jefferson and a filler - Doug Collins recently said he wants Young at the 4 and Iggy at the 3.. Meaning he needs a 2 and they will take Turner. But when they realize they need a center and have to make a choice on ET or Iggy they may choose to keep the young guy.

i read philly papers daily, sometimes twice a day.. When, and where did Collins say he wants Thad Young to play the 4?? everything i have read states the exact opposite. Everything I read states iggy is a 3, and thad is a 3, and one is probably gone or has to be a 6th - 7th man.... Young may play the 4 in spurts, but hes 100 % not going to start there....I like idea of moving iggy for jefferson... gives philly these starters.

Jrue, Turner, Thad, Al Jefferson, Dalembert with speights coming off pine with Lou to spell guys.. Young intriguing lineup to grow with..

1. You need to stop fooling

1. You need to stop fooling around with Freddy Kruger and wake up from that dream.

2. A line up of a undersized centre, and a undersized PF would have the sixers right back in the lottery next year.

3. I highly doubt Shaq returns to the Heat after bad mouthing them after he left. Pat Riley is looking at bigger FA's.

4. Who knows. Maybe. But why would Houston do this?

5. Would the Bucks pass on him?

6. I'm telling you guys Xavier is not quick enough to play the 3 in the NBA. 3's are usually slashers and he is primarily a shooter.

7. Joe Johnson is going wherever LBJ goes (or stays)

8. Does he have a problem with Johnson or something?

9. Don't forget they are going to overpay Rudy Gay as well

10. I would love that, but New Orleans isn't trading Collison.

"I thought when Andre was a two and Thaddeus was a three, they were both out of position. When Andre is a three and Thaddeus a four, that team won 40 games."

thad was only a 4 due to

thad was only a 4 due to brands shoulder seperation... Last yr he played all over, but Iggy is a 3... was a 3 with Philly until the only 2 left on the roster was willie green (when AI got shipped out)...

Thads a 4 in spots... but natural position is the 3..

church boy dalembert is a 6'11" center... learn your positions... hes not a 2nd starting PF..

Shaq should go sign with the Spurs he can start when Duncan is resting and vice versa.
