There's been a lot of news-ish commentary coming out of Chicago's Pre-Draft camp this week. Heat won last night also, and somebody dumped a beer on LeBron.

I'm waiting to see what happens in Game Seven before I weigh in on the Eastern Conference Finals myself, but I am thinking Rondo might need post a 43-16-12 triple double in order for Boston to win. Not that I'd put anything past the most underrated point guard in NBA history since Mark Price.
