Not only did Drake coach this game but Anthony Davis put on one hell of a show scoring 40 points for the Kentucky alumni. This kid is going to have one very impressive NBA career. Here’s some highlights…
Once again the pranksters of the NBA were on the prowl snapping photos of sleeping players and this time Kevin Love got Chris Paul, Lebron James, Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook, Harden, and Deron Williams all napping together. Anthony Davis looks hilarious and Chris Paul looks like a drooling baby, classic.
So after the Hornets won the first pick yesterday (having new owners), a lot of people are coming out and saying that there’s a possibility that this year’s lottery was rigged. For the past few years there’s been way too much talk of dirty work going down in the NBA especially with the lockout affecting numbers and viewership. Here’s what Yahoo Sports said…
MIAMI – This was the fitting end to one of the darkest, most unseemly episodes in the history of the NBA, the perfect punctuation on the commissioner’s manipulation of the sale and salvation of a lost franchise.
The New Orleans Hornets won the draft lottery and get to pick one of the most transcendent prospects in years, Kentucky’s Anthony Davis. The NBA-owned New Orleans Hornets, with a 13.7 percent chance, won the lottery. For over a year, David Stern pushed hard to get maximum value for his owners on the re-sale of the Hornets, and Tom Benson gave Stern an asking price and an assurance the franchise wouldn’t leave New Orleans.
“It’s such a joke that the league made the new owners be at the lottery for the show,” one high-ranking team executive told Yahoo! Sports. “The league still owns the Hornets. Ask their front office if new owners can make a trade right now. They can’t. This is a joke.”_ Source
