  2. It's officially NBA Draft Week! Dave Hardisty and David Weiner discuss the options before the Houston Rockets as they approach the June 26th NBA Draft, holding the #3 pick and the #44 pick. Is it really down to Donovan Clingan and Reed Sheppard? The pair also discuss trade-down possibilities and whether Devin Carter could be intriguing to Ime Udoka. And are the Rockets a darkhorse for a Paul George trade?

I just realized something (Lamb)...

    Given the similarity in their names, do you think Jeremy Lamb should change the name he goes by in the NBA to keep people from confusing him with Jeremy Lin?

    It's happened before--college player Jason Williams shortened his name to Jay Williams because the NBA already had a player named Jason Williams at the same time...not to mention Jayson Williams as well.

    Of course, no one could have predicted that career-ending accident he had, rendering the point moot.

    But anyway, do you think Jeremy Lamb should become Jay Lamb or something like it? Or use his middle name instead?

    (BTW, this matters whether or not he stays a Rocket.)

    It might just be me, but I don't think anyone will have any trouble telling the the players apart.

    Lamb and Lin are completely differnt...a play by play announcer is not going to say Jeremy to Jeremy...

    Ummm no. Maybe Jeremy Lin should change his lol neither one should change their name on behalf of someone else that's weak.

    wow glad we didn't keep both Dragic's. No telling how confused the announcers would be.

    Seriously, somebody lock this.

    I thought it was a good idea at the time...obviously I didn't think it through enough.

    I apologize to everyone.
