    Did he mention Simons?

    I "listened" to it, and heard him talk about Watford, Little, Grant and Sharpe, but I don't remember him mentioning Simons. Maybe I was zoning out.

    Hell NO

    It's gonna take a 1st to get Vando (if they wanted Keon or 2nds, he'd be a Blazer already). In order to get a 1st to trade for Vando the Blazers would have to unprotect or severely lighten the protections on the pick they owe Chicago. With how tough the west is 1-10 this year, it would be a massive blunder to do that for a role player.

    At Dame's Formula Zero camp, he was telling people that Simons is becoming his equal.

    I had read your original statement wrong. Thanks for clarifying that.

    Clearly I missed it (in my defense, I did skip through the first part of it until they started talking about the Blazers)

    Why didn’t he just say he’s going to be a good basketball player in the best league in the world?

    Pardon me if I take Dame's overhyping of young unproven teammates with a grain of salt. We've heard that before regarding others.

    agree....That's a huge endorsement coming from Dame. I wonder if "all world" was used in his recent camp. Dame knows if you want to be deemed all world it takes hard work and sacrifice.

    I won't lie, even if it is hype I'm still hopeful that he said it. If Sharpe can be 50 or 75% of all world that's still huge for this team. And I suspect that Dame purposely used the word "talent" and not "player" going back to his summer statement that Sharpe has to actually show it now.
