    I knew this would happen... it sucks but after five minutes... I'm not all that sad tbh. 5th, maybe 6th would've been terrible.

    Amen Thompson or Brandon Miller could be good fits on this team depending on our approach to offseason.

    If we keep the pick, I honestly don't mind one bit if we get either one.

    I knew it would be the Spurs. Makes to much sense for the NBA

    Rigged.....this has the stench of the Duncan lottery about it
    Rebuilding is hard...but this year to me was more free agency than the draft and what we do there.

    Why would the NBA rig it for the Spurs who play in a much smaller market. Yall crying rigged sound like MAGA. The process is bullshit nd not transparent but quit crying rigged.

    we didn't win the wemby sweep stakes but you have to admit the rockets have been very lucky in the draft.

    2,3,4

    is still kind of crazy if you think about it.

    also notice the best players in the playoffs right now arent #1 picks.

    so cheer up.

    im going to go for a walk.

    The NBA is a business. I promise you NBA executives have a closed door, top secret meeting discussing top/bottom line comps. What team would benefit the order of picks. SA has been bleeding money. You put Wemby on that team and it's instant, through the room profit. The whole state of Texas will benefit.

    lol it might be better as a fit and keeps Sengen here. If anything, SenGod fans should be cheering.

    I was hoping for 2nd at least. I really like scoot. I’d give up a Brooklyn pick and player to get him

    We are fcking CURSED!! I knew we shouldn’t have sent Ime up there, that’s bad juju. With the way they blew up his Boston situation, ain’t no way he was getting rewarded on lotto night. Man, I would’ve rather had Tilman up there with a drink in one hand decked out in Mardi Gras attire and a “pray for Victor” custom made black tee.

    and with the way the Rockets were clowned and attacked all season long, that was another sign regarding what was gonna happen tonight

    I hate that I even bothered to have a small amount of hope

    I think Vic would rather play out on the perimeter, anyway.

    Tony Parker. French Connection. Looks like a feel good story. Duncan there with Pop.

    trust me, it fit the storyline too perfect. Adam Silver would be a good WWE commissioner.

    The worst part is the team made zero progression year over year.

    Nah, he's got the #4 pick, #20 pick, 65+ million in cap and some trades to add to whatever the core of this team is... prolly Jabari and Green. Everyone else can go.
