What are you hoping for with this pick?

  1. Draft Scoot and keep him

    27.6%
  2. Draft Miller and keep him

    28.6%
  3. Draft someone else at 3 and keep him (please specify)

    3.1%
  4. Trade down, but still draft in the lottery

    10.2%
  5. Trade the pick for a starting forward

    30.6%

    Scoot or bust.

    You can’t miss on a future backcourt of Scoot/Sharpe

    Who me? That "oh boy" wasn't directed to Dame, just my first thought about the whole situation right now.

    Huh?
    Per 100 possessions (to equalize for playing time & pace), Grant has secured 6.7, 6.2, and 6.1 rebounds per 100 (primarily as the PF). Bridges has secured 6.5, 5.9, and 6.0 per 100 primarily as the SF.
    They are both poor rebounders.

    Siakam is 9.8, 11.2, and 10.4
    We need at least 1 of the forwards to be adequate on the boards. Maybe the target for the forwards ought to be Bridges & John Collins....

    I don’t even know why guys like Scoot, he looks like a better offensive Marcus Smart playing in the G-league.

    you can clearly see Brandon Miller has potential to be the best player in the draft next to Wemby

    He was only 17 when he started playing with Ignite.

    Did you not see what he did against Wemby earlier this year? Prime time and he looked like a poised vet in a big game

    All kinds of entertaining.

    But anyways, Dame doesn't give a shit about what other people think, Blazer fans or not.

    I once told Dame to his face I wanted Harrison Barnes, Austin Rivers or Kendall Marshall in the 2012 draft. Oops.

    I LOVE Leonard Miller. I was really hoping that Portland could snag him at #23.
    Looks like he will be taken in a range where it would be extremely difficult to snag a pick.

    I would love to have a chat with Dame and talk out the future of the team. I wouldn’t be scared to tell him that I think it’s in everyone’s best interest to explore trading him at this point.

    Why is it always the homers who attack the intelligence of the people who disagree with them?

    When Sharpe is peaking. When the Blazers unlock their future assets, they're most likely only going to 2029. 6 years. Sharpe would be 26 . Twenty freakin' six. That gives him , potentially , another decade to be special. Plenty of time to add free agents and so on. The ONLY way this team has a chance to compete for a title in the next 4 to 6 years is with Dame and added elements. It ain't happening with one & doners. OKC is in year 7 of the rebuild, and only if Chet is the real deal, does OKC have a chance to compete for a title within the next 5 to 6 years.

    He probably laughed because you both knew how foolish it looked it hindsight.

    PS- I also liked Harrison Barnes a lot!
