    I trust Stone to make the right draft decision.

    If PB is their guy, then go get him!! Not all 3 of these guys will pan out. I don’t have that “take who fall” attitude. Chet wasn’t good against better competition in college. Y’all gotta stop looking at overall stats and look at who he produced against. He will never be a star!! Y’all are gonna look silly in a few years. Idc about trading one of the other 1st, we don’t have many rosters spots anyways. Look at his game log, please!

    Chet isn't the one falling to 3.

    This would guarantee pissing off Presti for future trade proposals.

    Wow - I didn't expect the Magic to take Paolo, but I thought the Thunder might if Jabari wasn't available. If the Magic do take Paolo like the Vegas odds are suggesting, which I have no idea is accurate, then I'd expect the Thunder to take Jabari and Chet to be available for the Rockets to select. I don't know of any potential trades between ORL and HOU.

    If Orlando or another team takes him at No. 1, I can live with it. Jabari and Chet are excellent prospects who fill a greater need on paper anyway. If the Rockets trade up to No. 1 because there was a legitimate concern Orlando or another team would take him at 1, I'm good with it, too, assuming the value is right and they're not wasting a ton of assets.

    But if this is just Stone and Tilman being paranoid or on some kind of ego trip and they waste first round picks when they could have had Paolo at 3, I'm going to be livid.

    If we trade up for Banchero Stone loses all my trust. If it’s Tilman using Vegas to trick OKC to draft Banchero then bravo to him.

    1. Chet was BETTER by any objective statistical standard than Banchero or Jabari last season.
    2. Gonzaga played a tougher Strength of Schedule than both Duke and Auburn.
