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.

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.

His media interviews were far from impressive (and led me to question my selection of Lamb as one of the 3 guys of this draft I really like), but at #14 he's a no-brainer IMO.
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.

Thomas Robinson measured a 35.5 inch vert. Very good for a player his size. Blake Griffin also has a 35.5

Damian Lillard really helped himself last 2 days. Shot ball well. Competed. Just measured with a 36" inch standing and 40" full vertical.

Comedy from the Combine: the Harrison Barnes from North Carolina on the strangest question he was asked in team interviews: "Someone said, 'If the players on the coaching staff all go out at 2:30, will you come out with us?' I was like, 'oh.'...I said, 'Well, I might have to pass on that.' And they said, 'Well, but what if we're in Miami?' And I said, 'No, I'd have to pass.'"

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

Wow, players are smaller than I thought...also the average no step vert for PGs is less than 30''


Select '2012' - the average PG bench press is 11.3 and the average C bench press is 11.7WTF

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.

Quote:
CSNNW.com has learned the Portland Trail Blazers are high on Weber State's point guard Damian Lillard, University of Illinois' center Meyers Leonard, North Carolina's wing Harrison Barnes, and Kentucky's wing Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.

One league executive said Lillard is climbing the charts and if the Trail Blazers were to pass on him at No. 6, they don't think he'll be around at No. 11 at this rate.

I have been told the Trail Blazers will pick the best player available at No. 6 and that might not be Lillard.

Surprisingly, Kidd-Gilchrist, who's considered by many as a top three selection, says he's scheduled to workout for the Trail Blazers sometime next week.

Is someone thinking about trading up?

[...]

A player the Trail Blazers/many teams were disappointed in was Connecticut’s wing Jeremy Lamb. He was known as a sharp-shooter, but wasn't able to knock down his perimeter shot on a consistent level during drills.

Many of the prospects came to the Chicago Pre-Draft combine out of shape and wasn't able to perform at a high level, a NBA team official said. I was told most of these college prospects hire personal workout personnel who help them develop their individual game, tell them how great they are, but don't implement the conditioning aspect, the same official said.

[...]

One player (who will be a top 10 pick and shall remain nameless) said, “I would love to play for a city like Portland and play alongside LaMarcus and be coached by Nate McMillan.”

I'm not giving this information out for laughs and giggles, I just think it's important to know which players do their homework and are educated on the teams they could possibly fall to.

That's not to say someone who doesn't know anything about the Trail Blazers won't become a great player in this league, it's just good to have a clue to what type of person/player you're getting involved with.

Off the vibe I'm getting now, if the draft was today, [B]I think the Trail Blazers would select Lillard at No. 6. But if Barnes or Drummond are on the board, I think you have to take one of them.

No. 11 is a little is tricky right now. Leonard was the favorite to be there before this combine, but he has established himself as one of the centers with the most upside in this draft. He [B]could be a top eight pick now. I'm still going to go with Leonard at No. 11 but keep an eye out for Jones, too.
