  1. Rubio is gone....how do you feel about that? Lowry could be affordable.... http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/19777526/minnesota-timberwolves-trading-ricky-rubio-utah-jazz
  2. I confess that I do lot follow NBA that closely. But here's what I do not understand: If the celtics did not rate Fultz high enough to keep the pick, why do the deal with Philly that early? If Boston held on till the draft day, they could conceivably make an offer to the Knicks for Porzingas that would have been more acceptable (and face saving) to Phil Jackson. And then may be use the next year's Nets pick and trade for Jimmy Butler. We all saw how little the T'wolves had to surrender. The Warriors and Lebron are huge deterrents, I get that. But this version of the Boston team would have been good enough to contend now and would have been young enough to take over when GS and Lebron's team started to fade.
  3. I think if this happens, Celtics must be confident of keeping him beyond next year.
  4. Another Woj Bomb: An imminent trade: Paul George heading to Boston! So may be not.
  5. I did get NBA league pass this year, I think I will renew; even though the game timings are terrible in NZ....
  6. I had so much fun reading this thread....So here's a Woj bomb: Butler traded to Minny. For Lavine, Dunn and the number 7 pick! Jeebus! T'wolves will be good.

    The Traitor Son Cycle by Miles Cameron

    This is what I wrote in the thread before the board ate it during the upgrade (courtesy of AncalagonTheBlack) "Finished reading the Dead Wyrm, loved it. I really liked the Red knight, but felt a bit let down by the Fell Sword. But this one was fantastic. I hope more people discovers this series. I was pretty disappointed by book 2; especially after the high of Red Knight which was so good that I put Cameron on my must read fantasy author list. This one is a fantastic return to form. I am really looking forward to the next book.

    The Traitor Son Cycle by Miles Cameron

    Read the second book a few weeks ago. I liked the first one more. Some of the political shenanigans bored me a bit.

    The Traitor Son Cycle by Miles Cameron

    Just finished the book; really liked it. The last time I enjoyed reading an "unknown" writer this much was Lynch's Lies of Locke Lamora. Looking forward to the next installment which I believe is coming out in September. The multi time/person story telling did not bother me. Two criticisms: the end of the queen's story arc was anticlimactic. And the whole romance with Amicia seemed a bit contrived.
