    Dante Exum's dad stuck with the flat top through thick and thin. His loyalty paid off.

    Just tuned in. Who saw Hinkie taking Embiid? That's the kind of move Morey would make under those circumstances.

    Media got that wrong.

    Elfrid Payton, NOT Dario Saric

    I think #9 pick by Charlotte is an steal!

    #9 pick has been historically awesome:

    previous RECENT 9 picks: drummond, kemba, hayward, derozan, J Noah, Amare

    They might be right. Randle might need a handful of throwaway years and a couple throwaway franchises to move past before he can get his head screwed on right and finally start making good on his potential. :)

    Hinkie is pulling a Luhnow LOL. He doesn't want a single player that might step foot on the NBA court next year.

    EDIT: Nevermind the above comment :). I was wrong,
