    So you are saying Cooper Flagg is hiring Rich Paul as his agent, who will then threaten all the lottery teams not to bother drafting him because he only will play for the Blazers? Sounds good to me.

    Well I hope Cooper likes tanking because that’s obviously what the Blazers teach to their young players.

    The problem with your theory: despite the photo opp, Flagg didn't sign with UConn...

    I remember when the original dream team lost to a bunch of collegians and people said this about... Bobby Hurley.

    does this mean Cooper has a brother who will refuse to coach the Lakers in 30 years, when LeBron is playing with his grandson?

    A game Coach Daly intentionally "threw", but nobody wants that to get in the way of a good story.

    Actually crazy to think we could have a white starting frontcourt and be athletic, when was the last time that happened?

    This is all well and good but when he gets scouted that'll change, and it'll be about how he makes adjustments.

    It's the same thing as a pitcher that hadn't been seen yet in the bigs. First few starts are really good then they know what to look for and lay off.

    No doubt dude is generational, but this is a bit much lol
