    If you thought Scoot Henderson was going to be good this year, then you have nothing bad to say in this thread.

    This poster called his shot with Sengun and Tari, before anyone else did.

    I've just started looking at the draft and I agree, he is looking like a very interesting prospect worthy of taking high in this draft.

    If eric gordon had a shorter wingspan ?

    While I don't think Sheppard will be a bust, I also think Risacher and Castle will turn into better players.

    If everyone thinks Sheppard had "above average" combine stats then what about Knecht and Castle who had better combine performances than Sheppard? I'm pretty sure Knecht was 90% or higher in majority of the combine drills.

    The fit is ok but I don't think we should draft a player for fit. Seth Curry is a good comparison Seth Curry is def a great fit but drafting Seth Curry with the top 3 pick, is that a good idea? I don't really think so.

    Case to Trade up for Tari Eason

    lol you are technically correct, you posted a few weeks earlier - depth of analysis slightly different though

    If Stone doesn't pick Sheppard when he's available, CFers will storm the Rockets headquarter.

    Sheppard had slightly better numbers than Castle in testing. They’re a wash athletically

    again i like reed as well, but there are still 5 weeks more of input/workouts/etc to digest on the entire range of prospects before prematurely releasing your wad in bold type that one kid and one kid only is the messiah. additionally, for both the OP as well as myself, past performance is not indicative of future results :D

    He’s okay but it would be interesting to package Jalen +3 for an upgrade

    Castle has around 4 inches on Reed in height and 6 inches on wingspan so even if they are a wash (which I don't really agree with) then he is a lot better.

    Does anyone who watched Shepard have any insight on how he is as a movement shooter vs off the dribble?

    The biggest hole this team has is a off ball movement shooter that can play off Sengun, Jalen, Fred or Amen. Someone who can run off screens and have a quick trigger. I wouldn't consider Cam this. He's a stand still or off the dribble shooter.

    This dude is 2 years in a row not only saying who the most underrated player in the draft is but providing solid analysis of why and was not only correct about the players but also who the rockets drafted. This is year 3 and it falls in line with the other predictions. Not sure how you’ve missed it
