    Outside of a brief betting manipulation, the following has mostly been the narrative:
    1) Orlando will pick Jabari
    2) Presti is a witch that could do anything.
    3) Houston will take Paolo because Chet and Jabari are gone. No one knows who will select Chet, but he will be gone before the Rockets pick.

    Do you actually believe this? I know you hate the front office but I really am curious how inept you think they are. And my God is Presti overrated. The best thing he is good at is acquiring future assets. He gets no credit for drafting Durant since that was a two man draft...Westbrook and Harden are both definite wins...but the jackass traded Harden when he was sitting on a dynasty. I don't get it. He killed what could have been the best team of the decade and people think he is a genius.

    Interesting. Don’t you think he’s been out the mix with Rockets stuff lately since morey left? I feel like that was his guy. I’m fine with that order but if it changes, I’m hesitating.

    I feel like Woj is by far the most in the mix basketball insider around, he's got multiple tentacles in every single organization.

    Till he starts missing on stuff like this, he's the good standard.

    Also, no one credible is saying anything different. If Shams was saying he's hearing different things then I'd pause, but right now there's no reason to doubt Woj

    DON'T DO IT PATTY

    STAY STRONG

    POSITIVE VIBES

    It'd be like drafting Markelle Fultz to shoot your foot to keep from walking, only to get hit by a bus because you're too dumb and blind to see it.

    Let me clear it up...Stone isn't nearly as bad as you treat him and Presti isn't nearly as good as he's treated by you and the media. When we end up with Banchero with third pick will you admit Presti didn't bend over anyone. And the only real evidence we have of their competence compared to each other is the Sengun trade...who do you think won that? Is Presti getting something better than Sengun with that shitty Detroit pick that is protected top 18 for two more years?

    It is weird that Orlando hasnt announced who they are picking at #1 to show their committment to the #1 pick/player. Last year, Detroit had announced earlier that they are picking Cade. Perhaps, it is an indication that there is potential for trade at #1!?

    Stone is TBD.

    Presti is proven.

    Proven doesn't mean perfect.

    Honestly can’t blame a perennial losing franchise to second guess themselves at the last minute.
