I was chatting with a friend about the draft, telling him about all these exciting prospects that will be playing in the NBA soon. I was replied with a "I don't know, I judge them when I see em on the NBA court." It kind of had me stumped and made me think if I am wasting my time reading up on these will-be-NBA players. I mean if the player we draft is gonna be a bust, then they're a bust right? Is there something we gain as a fan when we keep up with the draft? What do you guys think?
I think you are correct. It's like watching "Hee Haw" when they sing "Doom, Despair and Agony" in the cornfield. It's so sad because you know Morey is going to screw it up so badly that you can't help but laugh.
Every time your Rockets email comes, please reply that you really don't care about any of their promotions until they get the Rockets games back on the five major Houston cable carriers.
there are t shirt fans, good fans and DIE HARD fans.. anyone on here that is looking into draft picks, and trades for other guys to upgrade the team are DIE HARD, people that go to regular season games and cheer are good fans, and people that only show up IF we make the playoffs are t-shirt fans.. your friend is a good fan, you are DIE HARD.. it's not a waste of time. it's fun..
kinda like playing NBA2K12 or NCAA13. do you manage a career or just play the game and turn it off..
The period between our annual early end to the season and the draft ranks as one of my favorite times of the year. Like some of you, it's when I get most interested in college basketball and the guys entering the draft. I love the whole conversation about moving up, or moving down, who we might, or might not target, possible draft day deals. It's a trip. I agree with A_3PO that the time between summer league and camp is when things slow down to a crawl. You pray for some nugget about the players working out in the offseason. Who's going to the late Pete Newell's big man camp? Who was able to get some sessions with Hakeem? Who's playing at Fonde? Who has put on muscle, or lost weight? It's a desert, with an oasis here and there. Yeah, this is a good time of the year.
