    I wouldn't be surprised to see Lamb end up having a better career than Davis. Just because the team that he will be playing with.

    Oh because Lamb played in the Olympics? Oh wait... nvm... that was Davis. Because Lamb was the #1 pick? Oh wait... nvm... that was Davis.
    Because Lamb could be a devastating shot-blocking two-way player? Oh wait... nvm... that was Davis.

    You're a flat out troll. Start a dumb thread, claim it's for "discussion". Now when people actually start to discuss, you troll because you don't have any facts to back up your statements.

    I don't think KG is a great comparison for him. As it stands I feel a more efficient and hopefully more healthy Marcus Camby is a good comparison. The thing with Davis is how quickly he has adapted to his "new" body and how he flat out dominated on defense as a freshman. Plus he moves great and gets up and down the floor quick.

    If anything I think this kid should try to pattern his offensive game after Moses Malone never leave the paint. Everything about his game should be within 8 feet for his first few years while he gets stronger. He almost seems like he could end up being a less robotic Dwight Howard.

    So you aren't trolling, you are just not bright at all.

    No logical person would read the graph and still think 12th, 16th and 18th pick is worth more than the 1st.

    I quit. So now he is like Kobe Bryant? Kobe had the talent; people had not drafted a SG directly from high school.

    Kobe fell cuz he was a whiny brat and didn't want to play for certain teams so teams passed on him in the draft. Stop pretending that you know a lot cuz you don't.

    I think badlee barely even mentioned our guys before we drafted them. He was hung up on Jeff Taylor and Fab Melo. Now he thinks Jeremy Lamb will have a better career than Anthony Davis. Nope, no bias there.

    what odds do you guys give to coachbadlee making it thru the 2012-2013 without getting banned?

    i'm putting it at 20% and i think that is generous.

    what do you guys think?

    Since you asked, I'll do the honour at your request.

    CF will be flat-out boring without coachbadlee-like posters.
    I would choose 1 badlee over 10 robbie380s.
