which implies that if it happens you'd do that, not you'll do that because it's guaranteed to happen

I'm not sure which of the Pacers or Heat will be more favorable. Both have a lot of room for improvement. The Pacers could easily find their way once the games mean more. Same with the Heat. But the Heat have not shown the kind of defense that made them impossible to beat. They do not seem to have it in them to shut teams down when needed anymore.

Either way, Toronto would have to get to where they are not likely to be until next season at best.

Damian Lillard lands mammoth shoe deal with Adidas


Quote:
Damian Lillard's banner year continued Monday, when the second-year Portland Trail Blazers point guard finalized a new shoe contract with Adidas that is believed to be among the most lucrative of any player in the NBA.

While the exact figures of the eight-year deal were not immediately known, a person with knowledge of the contract said it is smaller only than that of Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose (reportedly $185 million over 13 years with Adidas) and the Miami Heat's LeBron James (reportedly $20 million annually with Nike) among NBA players. If certain incentives are met, the deal could extend to 10 years. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the financial terms are not typically disclosed.

In a news release, Adidas head of global basketball sports marketing Chris Grancio called Lillard "one of the cornerstones of the adidas brand."

The structure of Lillard's previous deal was such that he could opt out and renegotiate at this early juncture of his fasttrack career. Adidas would have had stiff competition if they waited any longer, as their window to have exclusive negotiating rights with his agent, Aaron Goodwin of Goodwin Sports Management, recently ended and Nike as well as the Jordan Brand were known to be very interested in luring Lillard away.

Adidas has endured a trying stretch when it comes to its top NBA talents, with Rose suffering devastating injuries in consecutive campaigns and Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard's star fading during his time with the Los Angeles Lakers last season. Lillard, whose team plays so close to Nike headquarters, will now be featured as the next great perimeter talent with widespread appeal. And with good reason.

Lillard,the Oakland, Calif. native and Weber State product who was drafted sixth overall by the Blazers, has been tremendous from the start. He won Rookie of the Year last season, then became an All-Star for the first time and led Portland to an unexpectedly-strong season (currently 53-28, fifth in the Western Conference) in his second act.

He made the most of All-Star weekend in New Orleans when it came to bettering his personal brand, becoming the first player in league history to take part in five events. Before playing in the game itself, Lillard took part in the slam dunk competition, the three-point contest, the Rising Stars game and the skills challenge. Comcast SportsNet NorthWest first reported that Lillard and Adidas were close to a deal.

Memphis beats Suns to take the last playoff spot left!

Memphis vs Dallas in a couple days to see who gets #7(vs OKC) & #8(vs SAS) seed.

the fact that in the west seeds 1-7 will have 50 wins on the season is just insane.

in 2016 we have an extra 1st from knicks by way of den? SSo knicks win might mean a lesser DEN next year and a better pick for us

but I want to see NY fail, so I hope knicks lose and end up winning no 1 just to give it up

*err too confusing for me, but DEN def gets NY lotto pick this draft, so here's hopin NY wins the lotto!

PHX has all of the pieces to be able to acquire Love, and if they do, that will be one hell of a team.

But IF they do, they need to try and acquire a defensive center afterward to counter his lack of defensive effort. He's the PF James Harden.

BRK should win tonight with Melo out, and thus cementing themselves as the 3rd seed. I completely forgot that they were playing tonight and had 2 games left.

The way the Nets are playing we might face them even if we finish third. They're going to lose to the Knicks tonight( down 18 with 2 mins left) and if they lose tomorrow and Washington wins and we win then it's the Nets in round one, it may be destiny that we face these guys?

if they lose tommorow and Washington wins im going to be really pissed if we don't intentionally lose that game because that would be the best thing that could happen if we face Washington in the first round if we can beat them we have a way better chance against them then Miami and if lebron could get injured against the bulls I never wished injury on a person but that would be different we could actually win against the heat and we face okc in finals just my pipe dreams
