    What action/reaction/ or non action could the Rockets staff be doing that would make agents really think that they are truely "clueless" at the combine? Im interested to hear what that might be.

    If I were an NBA personnel guy, I'd be trying to line up Draymond in a scrimmage with some NBAers and see how he performs against some substantial NBA talent. I can see Green being able to dominate a couple other first round prospects. Simply because of his intensity level and approach to the game. I questioned the source of that comment because it rings true to me.

    The only questionmark with this guy is size and athletic issues. Everything else is there and there is no doubt in my mind that if I were going to war to win a championship, I'd want a whole bench full of guys with Green's skills, bball iq, attitude, intensity, heart, and approach to the game. And I'd take all those attributes over size and athleticism every time. This guy screams baller to me.

    Based on that interview, he's a no-brainer at any pick.

    You got that right. I wouldn't take that guy at 30. I may take a flyer on him in the second round. But no guaranteed contract for sure.

    What!!... who in the Rockets organization, especially at the top would compare him to Josh McRoberts? Morey himself always goes out of his way to say how he hates the comparisons on young players they are tagged with. Anyone who compares him to McRoberts has no idea what they are talking about and has probably never seen him play a game of basketball. No disrespect to McRoberts, but other than their size, and athletic ability they aren't even close.

    So someone is trying to scare players away from Houston?

    Are the numbers from day two out yet? vertical, speed, etc?

    Damn, Royce White's got bigger hands than Greg Smith.

    *EDIT* : Well, now I'm reading his hands are half-an-inch smaller than Smith's. Different sites are saying different things, but the dude's got some huge hands.

    Lillard reminds me a bit of Francis for some reason...in a good way.

    These players are roughly the same age and roughly at the same developmental stage. If they all have top of the line training regimens they should basically have the same strength, bench press is related more to muscle mass and you can't really lift a lot of heavy weights if you're still a growing boy. Bench press doesn't really matter anyway, just ask KD.

    Bill Ingram is one person i will NEVER follow on twitter. He spews nothing but unfounded hypothetical opinions and has the nerve to pretend to be a legitimate journalist.

    Also, why would ANYONE from the rockets organization ever talk to ingram in the first place. The guy is on the outside looking in. What better way to get back at them than to mine for negative comments from agents whose players are also on the outside looking in...

    Some combine/draft chatter from Portland.
