    There is absolutely zero chance that the Rockets 2nd round pick will fall in the 31-39 range, but the Kings will almost certainly get the pick since Dallas will get the better 2nd rounder between Houston’s and Golden State’s.

    • I read that four times and it still gave me a headache. There’s a reason I’m a ditch digger and not an accountant.

    Let’s review our knowledge of USA Geography:

    CLEVELAND is not CENTRAL
    WASHINGTON DC is not SOUTHEAST
    DENVER is not NORTHWEST
    MINNESOTA is not NORTHWEST
    OKLAHOMA is not NORTHWEST
    PHOENIX is not PACIFIC
    DALLAS is not SOUTHWEST
    HOUSTON is not SOUTHWEST
    MEMPHIS is not SOUTHWEST
    NEW ORLEANS is not SOUTHWEST
    SAN ANTONIO is not SOUTHWEST

    No wonder the NBA lacks Direction !!

    • So you want 22 teams in the Eastern Conference and 8 teams in the Western Conference?

    • So you want to rename the conferences as Atlantic 1 and Atlantic 2, then perhaps Central A and Central B?

    • Last point, Chicago has been a Midwestern City for as long as I can remember. But it’s nowhere near the middle of the West. I got over it when I was 11.

      • x%sure

        Just don’t say Middle West which is dorky… and defeats the rationale that “Midwest” is just the word for it, get over it by 11. “Heartland” is gaining momentum though!

      • andremets

        I think they mean ‘west of the east coast’ since that’s where the 13 colonies started. Similar to the Middle-East for the Arab Peninsula which east of Europe, just not as far as the Far East.

        • Yes exactly. My point being the NBA didn’t start this, and “is lacking direction.”
