    For those of you whose teams are not in the Conference finals, here is the basketball thread to talk about your team for now. :(

    The Pacific Northwest are the big winners. Portland is probably going to take Greg Oden and Seattle is probably going to get Kevin Durant. Oden is the better choice for Portland and Durant is the most NBA ready player right now, which would possibly save the franchise and could keep the team in Seattle.

    Portland had the best draft last year with Aldridge and Roy. Now you get Oden and a possible Zach Randolph trade that could land them Conley from Ohio State...wow. You're talking about a solid playoff contender for at least the next decade.

    Seattle needs a big man like Oden but Oden will take a little while to develop and adjust. The Sonics need someone who can sell tickets immediately and Durant is THE guy in this draft that can do that. They need to resign Lewis. I'd hate to see Seattle let Rashard go for nothing, they should at least do a sign and trade if he really wants out. Ray Allen is getting up there in age, I'd say he's only got about 3 to 5 years of good basketball left in him- if they let Lewis go, they should just blow this team up and start over with either Durant or Oden.

    How'd your team make out in the lottery?
