More or less, half of the NBA is going to flush themselves down the toilet this season for one reason: the 2014 NBA Draft is loaded with top-end talent that can change franchises. Or, at least that is how it appears at the moment.
That crop is led by Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, Marcus Smart, Julius Randle, Andrew Harrison, Aaron Harrison and Aaron Gordon. Just to name a few. Depending on how these guys develop in the next year, that could be a star-studded top seven. Learn these names now.

But Barry disagrees with that approach and recommends somebody who could work on James' technique, which he believes is slightly flawed.Himself.
In the least earth-shattering news ever in sports, an ESPNLosAngles.com report Wednesday states that the Lakers are planning to make runs at LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony in free agency next summer.

Not sure this should be huge news, anybody with common sense could see the Lakers were clearing the books for 2014 and that there were some potential huge free agents on the market. This is more of just confirming what we already know/speculated.
