Does anyone not think NBA draft lottery is rigged after Cavs win top pick for 3rd time in 4 years?

Going into this lottery I did the lottery simulator on ESPN.com 10 times. The Celtics got the first overall pick three times and were in the top three picks in five of them.

So I was feeling pretty good going into Tuesday night. Then this happened:

What a joke. Third time in four years they’ve gotten the No. 1 pick since LeBron James left. Even Tim Donaghy thinks the lottery is rigged. Here were the draft odds going into Tuesday night:

Yeah, so the Cavaliers had a 1.7 percent chance of getting that pick, so of course they got it. I mean, Primrose Everdeen had a better chance at being picked than they did. Too bad the Celtics can’€™t volunteer for tribute.

Here’€™s how the rest of the draft worked out:

1. Cleveland Cavaliers

2. Milwaukee Bucks

3. Philadelphia 76ers

4. Orlando Magic

5. Utah Jazz

6. Boston Celtics

7. Los Angeles Lakers

8. Sacramento Kings

9. Charlotte Hornets

10. Philadelphia 76ers

11. Denver Nuggets

12. Orlando Magic

13. Minnesota Timberwolves

14. Phoenix Suns

Obviously the NBA rigged this. Everyone knows that. The Cavaliers were the biggest long shot to win the lottery that no one saw since the NBA expanded in 1995. The odds of the Cavaliers winning the 2011, 2013 and 2014 lotteries: 13,467-to-1.

The NBA even gave Milwaukee and Philadelphia the second and third picks for their masterful tanking jobs. This season the Sixers lost 26 games in a row, traded two of their best players (Evan Turner, Spencer Hawes) for a pack of sour Starburst, purposely missed three dunks in one game against Milwaukee, and still were rewarded for it. I mean, the NBA couldn’t even make it more obvious that the fix was in. Not only did it give the Cavs the top pick, it even tried to cover up the fix by giving Milwaukee and Philadelphia the second and third picks. Because if three long shots got the top three picks that would just be TOO obvious.

Bruins take notice: Rangers show whining Canadiens fans how easy it is to beat their team

I don’€™t know whether or not to be happy or upset that the Rangers are completely facializing les Canadiens de Montreal. On the one hand I have loved watching the Habs get annihilated at home by the sixth-seeded Rangers by a combined score of 10-3. On the other hand, it makes you wonder how the hell we lost to these idiots.

Apparently we should’ve just drilled Carey Price‘€™s leg like Chris Kreider did.

Of course Habs fans are crying foul on this one. Even though it was clear as day that Kreider first completely emasculated Alexei Emelin, found the open lane, completely dusted both defenders and got a shot off while being hooked by both of the fallen pawns.

Now of course these idiots are whining, because in their moronic brains they can’€™t imagine that their Habs could possibly be beaten like this.

Does it get more Montreal than Josee Belanger? LOL Josee. Always trying to make it seem like they’€™re the NHL‘€™s battered women. A fatal accident? These clowns are just such a disgrace to this game. Everything that normal people like about the NHL, they hate. That’€™s the problem here. They hate the physical play, all the mean checking and the senseless pushing and shoving. And Kreider should get a five-game suspension for getting tripped by two defenders who just got smoked by Kreider without him having to break a sweat. Zero tolerance for those type of shenanignans. Clearly Kreider should’ve used his magical balancing powers in order to avoid contact with Price. Because when Emelin gives Kreider the reach-around, Kreider should’€™ve been able to pull out his inner Nancy Kerrigan and somehow avoid doing smacking Price on the knee.

But seriously, the silence of the Bell Centre was fantastic Monday night. I hope you got to hear it. Listening to those idiots say nothing as they collectively realized that this was the last time they’€™d see their Canadiens play in their arena this year was nothing less than euphoric. No way this team can win a game against the Rangers right now. But hey, at least you can still talk about 1993, 1986 and all those Cups you won when there were six teams in the league. Because we really give a crap about that.

Kevin Love going to Celtics instead of Rockets is most obvious move in world history

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports gave Celtics fans reason to believe the abortion that was the 2014 season will go down as a bump in the road between championship runs:

The Boston Celtics have emerged as an increasingly intriguing destination for Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star forward Kevin Love, and the Celtics‘ draft position coming out of Tuesday night’s lottery could be telltale in determining the feasibility of a trade, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

If the lottery percentages hold to form, Boston would draft in the No. 5 slot, which could hold appeal to Minnesota in this talent-rich draft. If Boston moves up and cracks one of the top three spots, general manager Danny Ainge would have a more difficult decision to make on using the pick in a deal for Love.

Love’s representatives with Excel Sports are pushing Timberwolves president Flip Saunders to find a trade acceptable to them before the beginning of summer free agency in July — preferably by the June 26 NBA draft, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Love plans to opt out of his contract in the summer of 2015 and leave Minnesota as a free agent, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Love, 25, wants a chance to play for an immediate contender, but has an open mind about multiple destinations in the league, sources said. In six NBA seasons, Love has yet to reach the playoffs in Minnesota.

The Houston Rockets also plan to make a run at a trade for Love, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Officials believe Love’s close relationship and respect for coach Kevin McHale could give the Rockets an edge. Golden State, Phoenix, the Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago are among those also planning to pursue Love deals with an eye on signing him to a long-term extension.

Love has no veto power over a trade, but it is unlikely any team will unload significant assets for him without an assurance he’ll re-sign a max contract.

Turns out Michael Sam is just a giant fraud

(ESPN)The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) announced on Wednesday that it had purchased the rights to a documentary series that will follow the life of Michael Sam. Terms were undisclosed, but sources said that negotiations to make the deal took two months.

“We are honored that Michael is trusting us with his private journey in this moment that has not only made history but will shape it forever,” said Winfrey, in a statement. “I am proud of the focus on authentic storytelling in our new documentary series format. The next real-life story we follow in ‘The Untitled Michael Sam Project’ promises to spark valuable, important discussion on life in America today. Acceptance and illumination start here.”

“œIf seeing my story helps somebody else accept who they are and to go for their dreams too, that’€™s great,” Sam said in a statement. “I am thankful to Oprah for her support and excited to work together.”

Sources say the plan is for the series to be broken up in to six to eight segments. His agents Cameron Weiss and Joe Barkett are producers, as is Sam’€™s publicist Howard Bragman.

All right, that’€™s it. I’ve officially had it with Michael Sam. Sorry, bud, I was one of your supporters for a while there, but it turns out you’€™re just a giant fraud. Newsflash, dude: You’€™re not that good. You were BARELY drafted, you sucked at the combine, and you have earned absolutely nothing. You claim that you want to focus on football and you want people to judge you for your ability on the field.
