    Yeah, I mean, I don't think we are contenders or anything next year. But I love the idea of a Sharpe and Simons backcourt for the future. Going to enjoy watching those two the most this season.

    This was not my ideal scenario, but hopefully this big swing will pay off... I'm a huge Sharpe fan now!

    Well in the second round we got a Center and a Power Forward...so with Sharpe hopefully our bench got much better. Sharpe can jump out of the gym.

    If he's as good as he looks, he will be helping the team from day one. Excited to watch him be all he can be for OUR team.

    Here are some fun highlights if you dont want to sit thru the games. You don't see 17/18 yr olds with this kinda footwork.

    All this enthusiasm. This is not ideal.

    Sharpe was one month old when LeBron was drafted.

    I think the Blazers and Blazer fans got very very lucky today.

    If a player can do this and also actually play basketball, I think he can contribute sooner rather than later, especially with the defense focusing on stopping Damian Lillard.

    When's the last time we had a guard who could snatch a lob with one hand and slam it through the hoop?
    Sharpe may be behind our other guards in the skills department (how much, we'll find out), but he's already ahead in the size and athleticism department. Sharpe isn't competing with Clyde Drexler for playing time. No offense to Anfernee Simons and Josh Hart.

    He's obviously a question mark given the fact that he didn't play college But...... Boy, am I excited after watching some of his footage.....

    He's got the size, the athleticism, the skills... He really seems to have it all

    Will all of this translate in the NBA? I don't know, but if I have to judge based only on YouTube footage he's the most intriguing prospect of the draft and I'm always in favor of high risk/high reward moves

    KOC said on Simmons podcast tonight that some of the concern on Sharpe was that he was too quiet, but he’s actually heard that Sharpe is a relentless worker and in the gym all the time.

    Please work out. God damn do we need this pick to work out for our future.

    Sharpe is on our team, so im rooting for his success, even if I have my concerns. I see what you guys are seeing. Lets go!

    Keon is probably capable of this.
