What we'll never know is that we actually did win #1 pick but the NBA overruled it for this reason.
you mean like swinging for Sharpe at 7?
if there's one thing I trust our front office on, it's their drafting. Getting commensurate value in trades is another matter.
That's literally Cam Reddish.
I kind of agree. But even if we keep Dame, do not trade #3. This is the pick that drafted Michael Jordan and Jayson Tatum.
In 2017-18, the Boston Celtics won 55 games with a starting lineup featuring Kyrie, and 2nd year wing in Jaylen Brown, and a rookie 3rd pick in Tatum.
Can that be Dame/Sharpe/Miller?
Celts also had Smart and Horford but I wonder how patient Dame is really. A similar sort of team is somewhat re-creatable
Ernst and Young (big 4 accounting firm of all public stock companies) was in the room and attested the agreed upon procedures were followed.
Add up the NBA players salary of LeBron, Dame, Giannis, and down the line to every single NBA player...yes combine them all, multiple that by 9, and it's less than Ernst and Youngs 2022 revenue. Yeah I don't think they give a shit about harming their reputation for your nutjob delusional conspiracy theory fantasy of the world trying to screw the Blazers over.
I think he means in a lineup WITH DAME, Sharpr & Simons play the same position. But Simons can play point if we trade Dame. We saw that in 2021-22.
No to Scoot
They are also the accounting firm that signed off on Enron.
Well except for the fact that they're not, that was Arthur Anderson.
That pick plus some should get us a 3&D star thats badly needed.
Yeah it might not be popular. Sorry to be like a broken record
To me, the other people are nuts.
Had a great time at Illani. Got to do part of a segment of an interview with Chad Doing on 620 AM and then out table got video taken for KOIN 6 and one of the people at our table did a live interview.
It sucks to come so close (1 Lotto ball) away from #1. That is the 2nd time that has happened. (The Derrick Rose Draft was the other).
It will be interesting to see what Dame thinks about this and what Portland might be able to get via a trade if that is what they decide to do. They may explore, and then decide they don't like the value they are getting back and go ahead and make the pick. If that do that, will Dame change his mind? What if Charlotte takes Miller at #2 and Portland is left at #3 with Scoot? Scoot certainly doesn't fit with Dame, but what packages might there be for him?
It sounds like Charlotte is open to trading their #2 pick so it will be an interesting few weeks.
I'd rather have a younger team (that has talented guys with potential above undrafted FA-level guys) that plays its best players for close to 82 games and finishes in the lottery than what we've had the last couple of years.
Who wouldn't prefer that?
I'm right there with you. Draft BPA at 3. Trade Dame for as many assets as possible. Grow.
Dame needs to be involved in feeling out certain players who only have 1 year left on their contracts. Would they re-sign............ I guess you could ask their agent as well, but I trust the players more.
Evidence of Charlotte willing to trade?
Creative thinking. We also have 23
