    So is that the same as "He's 2 years away....from being 2 years away."

    Lakers also really liked Simons. Could this possibly be a trade?

    Are people really confident in Neil after the bust pick of Swanigan?

    What I didn't get about Swanigan is that they just spend 2 first round picks to trade up to get Collins, a PF/C and then take another PF/C in Swanigan. If you trade 2 firsts for a player at a position, you better be sure so why do you take a backup? Weren't you sure?

    Who was confident in Neil? We were all sitting here hoping he wouldn't screw up.

    Yet he still did

    Didn't want a big but Robert Williams would've been nice there. Was a projected lotto pick last year before he went back to aTm for another year.

    Why would he be 4 years away?

    I like this pick. Maybe we could have taken Williams or Okobo but Simons could be a steal here. He had some very good reviews from workouts.

    This team is allergic to drafting an athletic wing.

    "We wanted a player that would make the fans feel good about signing Pat Connaughton to a Crabbe like contract."

    Some teams made some moves to get better either with picks or trades. Not sure the Blazers have done that so far. At best, he is a backup as of now and knows if he can even be a rotation player for a while. Meh....
