    If we offered our entire team to NO for Davis, I still doubt they would do that deal. It's a lot harder to get a rookie picked No. 1 in a good draft than it is to get a roster full of mediocre players.

    I hope you know how ridiculously bias your opening post is, so the fact that you're requesting people to read it in the first place is idiotic.

    You complement all the mid rounders and list their achievements, then deliberately leave out all of Davis' to make his resume look worse.

    Seriously, why make a poll when you don't even care about the results.

    So we keep motie and get davis?

    Where do i sign...!!!

    Davis is a special talent, while our rookies we all 'hope' become special talents...

    One in the hand is worth three in the bush...

    I 3rd the motion!

    I also like the one in hand vs 3 in the bush analogy. Hard to decide with no games played yet....

    You'd become a sentimental fool because they are Rockets now.
    It's easier to trade them at Draft Night than now but Davis is the better talent.

    Because in the opening post you basically say "would you trade these 3 guys for Davis?"

    :confused:

    Confused as to how reading it makes a difference? Oh ok, you might fool someone who is spectacularly uninformed, but apart from that....

    Goes to show everyone has their own preference. There is the majority, but difficult to get all into the same boat.

    You're an idiot.

    Also, the 25 who have voted No so far must have misread the question as, "Do you agree with coachbadlee?" or "Do you want coachbadlee to continue having thread starting privileges?"

    Lol we have 26 massive homers. A first overall pick is worth way more than those 3 players and Anthony Davis is pretty much a guaranteed All Star at the very least if not franchise player. He does not have much bust potential.

    I'd trade all three to get badlee's thread starting privileges revoked

    I left Davis' out because apparently everyone knows enough about him to want him. By putting the others achievements down, i am assuming some don't know enough about them. Anyway, all you have to know about Davis is that he was the #1 pick.

    And there is only one badlee who keeps cloning himself....28 and still counting.:grin:

    I will eat a healthy serving of crow if all our rookies have more combined ROY points than Davis by the end of this season.

    Why did you start a new thread?

    http://bbs.clutchfans.net/showthread.php?t=224894&highlight=random

    You've been here for awhile and you know this is a completely random trade.
