Oventin James Mayo will be ROY..cuz obviously they go by stats for this award(Al Horford shoulda won).. i can see Eric Gordon gettin it too,cuz he is going to have the green light,especially if they dont have Brand or Maggette

If Oden can be healthy all season he is a lock for ROY. This years class sucked compared to last year, and he was number 1 pick last year.

I noticed a bet lost..Yeah Sammy.

As for ESPN, pure S.

Rose will be the man like he was in Memphis this year.
Hinrich will be traded before the season starts.

As for Beasley, he will be bust. Riley clearly doesnt want
the guy. Remember how Jordan destroyed Kwame Brown's
ego..well Riley will do the same to Beasley.

Could be. That is why teams passed on Scola, Splitter and a couple others. Foreign buy outs are pretty expensive when its from a big team such as Tau Ceremica, CSKA Moscow, and so on.

I'd seriously be willing to wager a decent sum of cash, that B-Easy runs away with the ROY.

True but Scola took years to come over, like 4-5. Splitter got drafted last year and won't be around for maybe a few more years. If I remember correctly, the Blazers drafted him with the understanding that he would stay over for exactly 1 year.
