Five rounds went by in the 2000 draft... After 198 other players had been chosen, the Patriots drafted him in the sixth round.
Owner Robert Kraft recalls the night he was leaving the old Foxboro Stadium when he saw "this skinny beanpole" carrying a pizza. "He comes up and says, 'Mr. Kraft, I'm Tom Brady.' I said, 'I know who you are, you're our sixth-round draft choice from Michigan.' "And he looked me right in the eye and he said, 'and I'm the best decision this organization has ever made.' "
Unless the Lakers are planning on running Nash, Kobe, Artest, Gasol, and Howard for 48 minutes, I think their lack of a bench is going to kill them. Nice starting 5 on paper, but nothing else behind it.
OKC didn't do anything to make me believe they can beat the Heat.
San Antonio has the ability, but OKC can run them straight out of the building. Depends on the matchups and if they run out of gas again.
Chicago will be solid, but no Rose will get them nowhere in terms of the Finals.
Boston always plays Miami tough. Really display the heart and fight of champions. I'd give them the best shot against the Heat.
But until proven otherwise, Miami is the team to beat again in 2012-2013. If LeBron can continue to play like that and they get more than 50% of Wade this time, they'll blow teams out.
lol @ all the join dates for miami fans saying their team will win with ease
The heat got better, the thunder got better (more experience), and the lakers got better
this is going to be one top heavy season lol
miami la or okc
Some of us a starting to overrate boston, they had a good series against Miami, but thats it. They may be a top 2 team in the east but they certainty will not finish there, they are not a regular season team.
KNICKS PATS SOX
maimi is still the favorite but lakers just made it a three team race
Miami Heat- (4-1) So much for sweeping our way to a title
