    I disagree. I think there’s gonna be at least one guy who we all bitch about not drafting in a few years.

    Jokic was drafted in the 2nd round. He is better than Dame. You never know.

    That is some serious photoshopping phone skills to make it look like you actually posted that! Props!

    What superstar player would you like to pair with Dame? A player that we can get now.

    I will remember that every time a dog begs for a bone as if they haven't eaten for a year. When they still have gravy train dripping from the mouth.

    I bet you're right. I bet there's more than just one, there could be four. It very well could be Sharpe. If the OG trade doesn't go down, I'll be fine drafting someone. I kind of want it to be Sochan because I think he has a great chance to make an immediate impact and could end up a big time two way star... and at the same time I think we might be able to get him at 9 and take another swing at 25.

    At the same time OG (unlike anyone at seven or after [if we trade back]) has a floor that we know is high and still has upside at 24. So if we get OG, I'll be excited. If we get Sharpe I'll be excited. If we get Murray I'll be excited but won't love the fit with Grant. I don't want Mathurin but that's just me. I'll be excited for Daniels. I'll obviously be excited for Sochan. I'm really high on Duren but don't really want him. I'd be apprehensive and optimistic about Dieng. I'd be pissed about Davis or Griffin even though they could be much better than I think and fit. I'd be shocked and excited if any of the big three fell or Ivey but I might want them to auction Ivey off during the draft if he fell but he won't. Any one of those guys could be worse than OG and anyone of them could be better than he is right now.

    So there are a ton of exciting options and OG is one of them if he just costs us EBEC and 7.

    This is how I see at least half the posters around here in my head every time I read a meltdown thread.

    This guy I listened to talking about Chauncey as a coach, he's been on the Grant trade for a while...he's actually got a sharp mind for basketball...knows his stuff.

    Hopefully Billups can get him to rebound better and fight through screens. I think he can be a really good player if he wants to be. Hopefully being on a contending team will motivate him.
