    You guys should just sex with each other and get it over with. Maybe you can date at one of Tilman restaurants?

    I'd have considered it a few years ago probably. He's put on some weight more recently though.

    I don’t blame Morey for wanting out, but the contract thing has bothered me from the beginning. I wouldn’t be surprised to see tampering charges thrown out there at some point.

    Maybe for the Nuggets, but I think Riley and Ujiri have always been respected on that front.

    Ujiri has overseen multiple drafts where he finds real gems. He seems to do a good job of getting value out of his draft picks. I guess we'll see how things stack up, I feel like Ujiri has been the most underrated executive in the NBA when all he's done is field super competitive teams also without tanking.

    I like bmelo's idea. How about a meal at Saltgrass? We can work things out over a nice T-Bone cooked to juicy perfection by one of the chefs that I personally micro-manage. It'll be my treat and you can even eat low carb if you're trying to lose a chin or two! Just avoid the bread basket.

    Wouldn't say their resume is all that great. Siakim is by a good margin the best considering his late 1st pick.

    Miami's draft picks prior to bam and herro in the last 10 years

    Winslow
    Richardson
    Hairston
    Christon
    Moultrie
    Bogdanovic
    pittman
    varnado
    dasean butler
    latavious williams

    Raptors picks in the last 10 years

    Hernandez
    Anunoby
    Poltl
    Siakim
    Wright
    Bruno
    Daniels
    Thames
    Ross
    Acy
    Zubcic
    Valaciunus
    Davis
    DD

    I enjoy our debates but you were wrong about MDA, you were wrong about Morey and you were wrong about Harden.

    Your knee jerks are going to give you a heart attack.

    Take a deep breath, Silas, Stone and Harden may yet prove you wrong about them too.

    And as a Rockets fan, that would be a great thing.

    I'm admitting I was wrong in the post you just read and hoping I'm wrong again.

    So I guess Brian T. Smith is Tilman's Rudy Guiliani.

    What an embarrassment of an article. Every legit journalist should feel dirty after reading this.

    With the Raptors I'm only considering Ujiri's Raptors. If you look at his draft history it's littered with gems.

    For the Heat, Richardson was an amazing pick, and part of their package for Butler, a 2nd round guy, they could not hope for more and he's a borderline starter, definitely a starter on most teams. The rest of those guys, like a good a chunk of them, they traded away on draft pick. Even if it is just recent history, it's a lot better than our draft history. Like that's the one thing I can say we haven't had that much of with Morey. Outside of Capela really and Dmo that excitement of seeing a young prospect grow and develop.

    We have guys like House and Beverly and Parsons sure but you always feel like those guys have a ceiling. But guys like Bam and Herro and Siakam, i could see these guys being all-stars for years to come. Guys like Jokic, later draft picks like that, even if that is recent thats something that should go on the resume. Finding an all-nba player in the 2nd round is a huge boon to a franchise.

    I don't think Morey should be shamed for his drafting, just that other teams have done better.

    Morey has no resources left in houston other than harden. He doesn't want the consequences of his trades for Russell Westbrook and Chris Paul.
    That's point blank and the end.
    In Philly he can do so much more because he has all his resources and run them into the ground.

    I wouldn’t consider it that much different considering their picks are much higher. Nobody is saying he is the best when it comes to draft. He’s done what he’s been able to just like anyone else
