Well, no one can argue with that.

I read that in a Stephen A. Smith voice with the delivery of Family Guy's Ollie.

That's turrible right there. Just turrible.

Article was too long to hold my interest, just like the NBA.

I liked the interactive facts section. Seems pretty easy to come up with a fact to go with each of the numbers between 10 and 0 and they did seem to get a bit lazy with it, but it was a neat concept.

Another year to affirm that being in the NBA middle-class stinks. The Bucks have to pray someone thinks way too highly of Ellis/Jennings/Mbah a Moute or else they're left with the thrilling possibility of biting on Sullinger or Perry Jones III.

/At least Joe Alexander isn't available
//Or 'Tractor' Traylor

It's like they've been drinking since the Heat won the championship and someone over there mustered up just enough sobriety to crank out one sentence before collapsing into a fetal ball on the floor and vomiting all over themselves.

If you really are an NBA Draft-freak, the Sunday PD's have been featuring some pretty comprehensive coverage. It's tilted to the manymanymanysobmany needs of the Cavaliers, but there's a lot of information for everybody.

I just posted something nice about the PD? Curse you, FARK!

I'm not gonna read all that!

The author of that articles must really be into sports. I'll check.

Greg Oden was drafted 5 years ago!!!

Damn, time flies.

Maybe that was the authors first chance at writing a big league story. Wanted to make sure all facts were correct. So, put in 1 fact and call it a day. Hire that brilliant author!

There is more than the 1 sentence - there's a slideshow thing below the picture of Lebron showing how each number from 10-0 is significant to Cavs fans in the draft.

10 - Years ago the Cavs drafted Dajuan Wagner in the first round from Memphis.
9 - Years ago LeBron James was the No. 1 pick. (Also the number of players from Big Ten schools selected as the overall pick in the draft since 1947.)
8 - Jersey number Christian Eyenga wore with the Cavs, who drafted him in the first round in 2009.
7th - Where Kevin Johnson was drafted in 1987 by Cleveland. Johnson is now mayor of Sacramento, Calif.
'06 - The year an overall No. 1 choice (Italy's Andrea Bargnani) went to a player from another country and to a non-U.S. based NBA team. He was drafted by Toronto.
5 - Years since Portland selected Ohio State's Greg Oden as the overall No. 1 pick.
4 - Total picks for the Cleveland Cavaliers this year. And total number of overall No. 1 picks the Cavs have had since 1947. Also, Cleveland will pick fourth.
3 - No. 1 draft picks since 1947 who came straight out of high school.
2 - Rounds in the draft.
1 - Thursday, New Orleans picks first.
0 - Picks the Cavs had in the 2007 draft.

Hey, there's a reason the PD is the best daily paper in Cleveland.

Looks like Houston might be getting ready to send Orlando the 14, 16, and 18 for D12. If I'm Orlando I'm all over this. You could probably end up with something like a Royce White/Fab Melo/Jeremy Lamb/Marquis Teague combo (assuming Houston doesn't demand Orlando's 19 back)....maybe even better if someone like Zeller or Rivers ends up falling. That's something worth taking a risk on, right? You could sell Magic fans on "Come watch our Fab Four grow".

Hey, at least it wasn't FBXRD.

The Plain Dealer didn't get much of a jump on that ball, Monte. Well, let's give him credit. At least he didn't spike himself.
