    I don’t think Chet goes as high as he’s predicted.

    Rockets will be selecting the best player in the draft. I can feel it in my plums.

    All I want to say is, with all the buildup, if we don’t land Paolo, I’ll be disappointed.

    Banchero is the best player in this draft.

    I refuse to believe he'll be a Rocket until his name is called.

    I just can't imagine 2 teams passing on him.

    I'm befuddled anyone would take Smith or Chet over him

    I don't do predictions that much, but my body is ready for something unexpected.

    Haven't been this excited for a draft in a while. I'm actually going to get a chance to watch this tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing what the Rockets do.

    Spurs fielding calls for Dejounte Murray. I would pay quite a bit.

    Banchero, and then we trade for the Knicks' pick at 11 with some combination of Gordon, 17, 26, and cap space to pick Sochan, completely ruining Sam Presti's day.

    If 26 is still around after that mayhem, then sure, Beauchamp what the hell.
