    The guy HATES the front office but is the same one that wanted us to trade Harden straight up for Ben Simmons. Do you realize how bad that would've been? We'd be stuck with NO draft picks and a player sitting on the bench not knowing when he'll play. A player scared to shoot at that. He is NOT the guy to question anything the FO does

    Actually Presti is a tad overrated. If he doesn't turn the draft picks in to championships, it has been a major bust and would be a big hit on his reputation

    I don’t believe it…

    They just trying to manufacture suspense.

    If the 1st pick isn’t Smith, then all bets are off.

    Jabari and Chet both fit. I am the biggest Paolo lover here but it doesn't matter. Stand pat Patrick.

    It's really happening man. Suddenly I don't want to watch this event I've been waiting months for.

    They applying the pressure to Stone.

    This should be a lesson on NEVER EVER showing your hand.

    Was so obvious who they wanted and now they are trying to get the Rockets to pay up.

    DONT DO IT!

    BPA, ALL DAY!

    I've been a little bit out of the loop on what the insiders have said. Did he say this?

    And if so, who is the target and why does a tree down make sense? Considering we have an excess of picks already? I would think you stand pat and take Jabari. What would keep us from taking him?

    Like most years, I have no idea which of these players will be the best pick. last year I liked Mobley from the little college ball I watched.

    This year I haven't a clue. I just know in my uneducated opinion, Chet seems like the scariest and riskiest pick.

    Too funny. How many guys discredited the bettors? Then the Woj bomb early settles things down and now this?
