So Stern has 2 spots to pick. Yao's and Boozer's. It's going to be real interesting. I hope I'm wrong, but I'm really don't think that Stern is going to pick Melo. Sending the wrong message, etc. We'll see what Stern's PR decides to do, that's what I think will determine these 2 picks.
Stern wont want to pick Anthony, but Anthony is popular so we'll see.
Stern wont want to pick Howard either because of Cuban, so it will be interesting to see what he does. He's backed into a corner. I wouldnt be surprised to see him choose Zach Randolph and Ray Allen or something like that...a couple of smaller market players. Maybe Odom for LA. Shoot...why not just throw Diaw and Raja Bell in there to complete the deal?
