    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    That's it for me. I'm so happy with this draft but I will not be listening to Perkins speak any more. Good night y'all! Rockets gonna be fun to watch again.

    Interesting to me that the first three picks all have professional experience, makes for a faster rebuild hopefully.

    I heard he has already created a toxic culture.

    Maybe they know Wall is here to stay. Forever. And ever. Sigh.

    That surprised me more than a little, the guy more than it being another guard, but after what he did earlier, Stone can do whatever he wants. ;-)

    Hyland? Interesting. Draft is transitioning to team fit instead of best available now.

    Whoever gets JT Thor is going to get a player with an unbelievable ceiling....guy should have been a HS senior this past year...reclassified to sign with Auburn. Can step out and hit 3, good rebounder, defender. Young and raw but great upside.

    So what do we think the likelihood that we make more moves to get into the 2nd round?

    JT Thor over Christopher would have made the draft perfect for me.

    Yeah can def understand the frustration there but they can make a playoff push whenever they want.

    The goal right now is prob to tank thats why they are flipping assets for more assets. I think its pretty smart just having a long term outlook on things.
