    Awesome, am listening now !

    Hey @Clutch not sure if it was just me but tried to play from the main page and it wouldn't start - playing in it's own window is fine.

    Not sure if that is everyone else though.

    Gordon is likely the next one traded, but besides him surprisingly K.J. Martin is probably next out. There were serious locker room issues and probably will be next year too unless KPJ starts to figure things out.

    Hey @Clutch and @BimaThug

    First awesome podcast, 2nd......

    What about live streaming the draft party? Where we see you two and you give your instant analysis of the picks?

    That would ROCK!!!

    frightening. If he’s a threat to team chemistry we need to move on. This is ridiculous. Talented guy, not worth torpedoing the franchise rep for. He’s on a very short leash for me; we coddled him way more than he deserves.

    learning that KPJ, not Tilman, was the reason Mobley didn’t want to work out for Houston should be a wake up call for everyone.

    Great podcast guys; as always. What I took from it is that it’s gonna be hard to get what the rockets are asking for EG. I’m preparing myself that he’ll be on the roster next season. If the rockets can use him to move up that would be ideal. If we can package 17 and 26 to move up or out of the draft then trading him for 23 seems like something we should consider. But if I heard Bima right it sounds like Philly doesn’t have matching contracts and I wouldn’t take back an extra year of salary just to move EG.

    on the draft, I think that if AJ Griffin falls to 10 or 11 you do everything you can to move up and get him. He could turn out to be the best shooter in this draft.

    Thanks, DD. Sorry, but I'm going to be too into the draft (plus entertaining guests) to also live stream anything that night.

    Clutch: Knowing that we will very likely get Banchero at #3 (with no choice) changed how you see the player.

    That makes sense. If you don't have a choice, then you want to get your hope up by seeing the guy in as much positive light as possible.

    I wonder if we had the #1 pick, would people on CF still love Paolo so much? Holding the #1 pick is the ultimate test of how you really value a player.

    Probably not, but getting Banchero at 3 is a fantastic outcome, that is hard to dispute.
