Thursday Breakdown

*The Playoff Odds on ESPN are out. If you need an explanation of how they work, click here. In a nutshell, its some fancy shmancy formulas to tell us who's going to the playoffs. In the East, it looks dead on, except i think Indiana will drop out. You can say the same for the West side, where I think it will stay the same, although San Antonio will replace Portland.

*There's been a lot of talk in the offseason about a "Train like a Pro" camp at the IMG Training Academy. 82games gives us the full story.

*Dime Magazine asks us, who's the ten fastest players in the NBA? I think Dwayne Wade and Devin Harris should be on this list. He is The Flash, right? Who do you think is the fastest in the NBA? I think I'm gonna go with AI, still!

*SLAM, breaks down the Cavs new offense. Le-Bron, Ja-mes, clap, clap, clap clap clap.

*Larry Hughes wants out of Chicago says the Chicago Tribune. Or he wants more minutes. This could be a good opportunity to get rid of the Zach Randolph contract. The Bulls clearly need an inside scoring presence, and with Drew Gooden's decent Defense, maybe he can pick up the slack for Z-Bo.

*Two really awesome articles on Magic Johnson. First, from ESPN, and then an exclusive interview over at FanHouse.
