    How can the Rockets select a player that did not workout for them?

    Don't know how to feel. I really came to like Paolo so I feel dissapointed but there are many aspects to taking Smith that make it easier to commit to Sengun (who I love). Oh well. Is what it is. I am sure Orlando wanted a kings ransom to move up.

    I was all-in on Jabari for fit but recently after listening to Duncan & Hollinger breakdown his incredibly low percentile of being able to get around his man in college I think that may have been a huge red flag for these teams.

    Paolo reminds me of Boozer. I'm okay with that pass.

    He could be an elite shooter with range and become an All-NBA 1st team defender. That could make him a starter for a decade, a great No 2/No 3 that helps out a No. 1 star because his elite skills fleshes out Green's weakness.

    There is no No.1 on title team in this years draft, everyone kept trying to make it seem like one of these 3 guys are one, but none appear to be unless they make giant leaps in their skills sets.
