I've got this weird feeling...

    We're all pretty much accepting that it'll be Jalen Green tonight, but for the past few days, I've had this weird feeling that it won't be. Something feels weird with what we're hearing out of Detroit.

    I expect them to pick Cade. I'd be ecstatic with either of the two. I just have this weird feeling that there's a somewhat realistic chance that this could go down as one of those moments in Rockets history where we all say, "Remember when we thought we were draft Jalen Green, but the Pistons gave us Cade Cunningham instead?"

    These three players, like Clutch said, will be tied at the hip. Hopefully we come out on the right side of history, whatever that may be.


    There's just a weird vibe in the air...

    I agree. Usually it’s a lock on who the number one pick will be by draft day.

    Somethings up

    You're giving Stone and TF WAAAAAAAAAAAAY too much credit.

    These guys are about as subtle as a mob hit.

    I get that feeling too but I try to push it aside because I think the Pistons are yanking chains. It feels like the Timberwolves last year pushed a cloud of uncertainty as well and they likely knew they were taking Edwards #1 for some times. I don't understand why teams do this other than:

    1. They don't want teams below them (like Houston, Cleveland) to bank on anything and get possible trades in place.
    2. They want to feign uncertainty to solicit trade calls.

    And i just hope the Rockets make the right/best decision, as long it's not a dumb trade, whoever it is who cares.

    Yeah it makes you feel hopeful but really it’s just false hope.
