    Visionaries are often seen as insane before their genius is recognized.

    Sharpe responds by going 0-2 with 0 rebounds, 0 assists, 0 steals, 0 blocks and 1 foul.

    Way to show 'em Shae.

    Shae is still dealing with the jammed pinkie. I think Billups killed his confident after throwing him under the bus after scoring 20 against the nets. The kid was on a roll till that postgame interview. Sharpe whole demeanor have changed since that game. Billups isn’t the coach we all cracked him up to be

    A jammed pinkie is just life in the NBA. Much of that stuff doesn't even get put on the injury report. As for demeanor and confidence, Billups may not be blameless, but you want to hope that the kid is a little tougher than that as well.

    Imagine complaining about a guy who hasn't played 20 NBA games after not playing any college ball.

    That's just sad.

    You honestly think Shae is that fragile? I heard that post game interview and nothing was said that should deflate Shae's confidence.
    I like that a coach will talk about what a player needs to improve on and Chauncey will also give praise too.

    I didn’t get that at all. Maybe some poster is trying to hard to start some drama?
    Just a thought?

    Please re-read. I wasn't correlating intelligence to being nice. I was saying how anyone could bag on a former Blazer... especially one that by all accounts was a positive for the team.

    Part of me thinks it's similar to how someone on here is a massive fan of a certain player, and will always paint said player in the right, and everything done against them as a slight. Even if it's laughable.

    He has suited up for 20 games of real man bb. What can you really expect? He shows tremendous physical gifts and can shoot extremely well for the most part. I would say he has much more potential as a real franchise piece than anyone Portland has drafted since Dame.

    Yeah, but whats more likely, the first 13 games or the last 3!?

    HE'S A FRAUD! HE IS FOOLS GOLD! HE DRINKS LIKE A...oh wait, sorry, wrong player.

    Just checking in. This is about what should have been expected. I’m mean, right!!?? Couple years away from helping us consistently. Those scouts don’t fuck around man.

    Which is kinda why I was hoping we were able to trade this pick for a vet to help Dame NOW. This is why that was my opinion.

    Boy were we fooled by this kid. He’s useless now. These scouts really don’t fuck around. Your right @THE HCP

    that’s why your big bro!

    There's no vet that we could've got that would've turned us into contenders. Sharpe is still all potential, and even if he doesn't work out for us, maybe somebody will fall in love with him like Ainge did with Telfair.

    If we kept the pick but wanted an "immediate impact" rookie, whom should we have taken? Don't say Duren, because he's as raw as Sharpe. Jalen Williams of OKC, maybe? Tari Eason?
