    I was Green until @HP3 said he was Green Gang and I had to switch it up for Mobley but I couldn't do it anymore until like 3 days ago.... When the news broke out that Mobley was not giving us a workout I had every reason to go back to Green whom I originally wanted at 2...

    Lol nah, my switch is documented in some game thread I forget which one.. HP3 can confirm, I almost had me convinced too... Then I watched some Green videos and was like hol up....

    Mobley may end up the best player in the draft, but Green is similar to Cade in that you can't pass these guys up. You just cant, and if Mobley or Suggs turn out better well you cant blame Detroit or Houston for their selections. Cade and Green, there is just something about them.

    Cade and Green are nice steaks from a good restaurant, Mobley is a nice home cooked meal, and Suggs is a PB&J sandwich…this #2 overall pick is a huge promotion, and I want to celebrate with some steak…maybe I end up having a bad experience at the restaurant and would’ve been better off staying at home, but I’ll take the risk

    that’s my take on things

    That's a great analogy, I just really hope we keep our pick... I don't want surprises, I don't care for all this trade talk. I don't want The Rockets trying to be too ambitious when they have Green available. Houston possibly has in hindsight the best position, we don't have the pressure of a 1st pick bust and we don't have to overpay to move up because the next pick is absolutely arguably almost as good. Detroit, has very little or should have very little leverage because of how good Green is.

    Cleveland, Toronto and OKC can outbid themselves for Cade but we don't have to do anything... Just draft Green...

    Why do people keep saying he's 18? He's been 19 for more than half a year now.

    Don't let your dislike for me cloud your judgement on what's best for The Rockets....

    Cheap Tillman! Couldn't even spring for the Hilton Americas which is right next to the Toyota Center? Had to make Jalen commute into downtown? wtf

    Where are the folks that thought he wouldn’t show up for his workout since the rockets are such a poorly run organization? All I see is a guy who’s trying to be picked number one.

    I had Mobley and Green neck and neck talent wise with the slight edge to green because of his mentality and competitiveness. I’m disappointed Mobley not wanting to workout proved me right, I was hoping he would show some more fire than this.
