    I have never seen one player with Chet Holmgren’s build that wasn’t a relative bust.
    7 foot and 195, and average athleticism, lol.

    I don’t see a superstar in the draft. Just a bunch of average players.

    I don't trust Stone when it comes to trading. That idiot will probably try to trade Wood for a damn pick swap. I'd rather just keep him.

    Still nothing like picking a bust at #1 or #2

    I’m just thankful as hell that we didn’t get the #5 pick. I wanted a top 3 pick and we got it. We’re getting a real building block and a solid player. Any of the top 3 could end up being the best player in this draft.

    Blazers/Pacers dropped a spot
    Pistons dropped 2 spots
    Kings moved up 3 spots, 7 to 4
    Thunder moved up 2 spots, 4 to 2
    Rockets dropped 2 spots, 1 to 3

    They got playmakers in Suggs (hopefully) and their new SF. Chet makes sense cuz he is a pf who has proven to be able to play with a C. Wc and Bamba are centers. And chet is projected as the best player in the entire draft he can do everything well.

    Yeah and he's the only one in the media too so you know it's genuine. Rockets and talking about them doesn't generate klicks

    lol yep, they were supposed to have a top 3 pick, Sactown jumped into the top 4 which meant one of us was about to get screwed, turned out to be Detroit.

    Geez, that would be the tallest starting front court in NBA history.

    Banchero - Yo Wood, Tired of rebounding. Cover my guy.

    Wood - Nope. I'm keeping my legs fresh for the 3s.

    Williams - You guys know I shoot 3s the best right?

    No 3 is a hell of a whole lot better than 5. Stone did alright.

    I’d trade Wood for a chip. Not a championship. Not a bag of chips. One potato chip.

    Addition by subtraction.

    Devastated we won’t get to see Chet in a Rockets jersey this year.

    We picked 2nd and 3rd so hopefully that #1 is in our future.

    If only.

    I think ORL and OKC both covet Chet.

    I'm curious what it would take to move up... i think jabari is by far best fit.

    Orlando would be best for Ivey in my opinion...

    Thunder could use any of them really...

    Maybe Wood and #3 for #1?
