    Well, since Oden's pictures leaked they've eliminated one measurement

    Long legs. I think Edey's lack of athleticism is a myth people are taking for granted. His size and length will compensate. And he'll be a very good rebounder, inside scorer/defender.

    Have a few friends working the combine today in Chicago. I was curious how Bronny was doing. They all said he has been killing it! Vert/3 point shooting! Said they’ve been hearing how much he impressed.

    Ask them if his combine measurements were accurate. Hard to believe he is only 6'1.

    draft Bronny with a 2nd round pick. That way LeBron will fly from LA buy courtside seats to 3 Blazer games, and at least 1 will make it on national television.

    Should the Blazers be interested?

    He's why they're making the draft two days.

    A lot of people on Twitter posting this. Now remember that Sharpe has a 49" vertical jump.

    I think he would have a real impact for a year or two then nothing.

    Cody Williams weighing in at 178 is not that bad. Yes, he needs to add about 20 lbs, but once he does he will be a much different player. A lot stronger.

    You think they’re gonna sell out arenas because of Bronny?

    Well if a Gleague arena only seats a couple thousands and previously had games with a couple hundred it wouldn't take much to "pack an arena"

    That tweet is certainly overselling his impact, maybe its agent driven or some other persons agenda, but I certainly could see Bronny having some sort of impact for next season. So could that impact be a small factor for a team debating between two of these crappy draft prospects? Sure

    What I honestly think is that Bronny is better than most people hope. Seems to me like everyone WANTS him to fail.
    The trash that kid is taking right now is otherworldly.
    Something tells me that a bunch of people are selling him way short. A very large part of the game is in the head. Pretty easy to see he has a pretty good mentor for winning both on and off the court.

    He seemed pretty mediocre at USC. I guess we will see. I don’t really care either way, but the idea that people will sell out arenas for him just seems crazy to me.

    Another thing is Lebron has always made an attempt to watch his son play. At some point you can figure he will show up and watch a game.

    You may be full of hate towards the kid, but I promise you people will purposely go see him play in the g-League if that’s where he is. No doubt about it.
