    I wish we were able to draft Paolo.

    "21/4/6 before 22" is such a random ass set of numbers to group players by. what about the list of players before 23 who's averaged 8/16/3?

    I'd like to see numbers when they were 2 years old. Bronny would stand out like no others.

    I hope I'm wrong but I think next year's scapegoat will be Jabari. People might be talking about how he's not lived up to his potential and compare him to Paolo a lot. And by "people", I'm probably talking about me lol, but here's hoping he starts acting like he belongs, be bold and start being selfish sometimes

    Paolo went first because he was the better player and prospect. Chet went second because he was the better player and prospect. Sadly the GMs in front of the Rockets drafted the two players in the tier ahead of Jabari. If you want to compare Jabari to other players, compare him to Jaden Ivey, Keegan Murray and Shaedon Sharpe because those are the players who should have been considered to be in his tier at the draft. Jalen Williams is the one guy who wasn't viewed as in his tier that is clearly better than him at this point and probably belongs in the tier with Chet and Paolo at this point.

    I get the criticism, yes, he is no Paolo but he had a slightly better season than Jalen Green for instance. Aside from scoring.

    Getting props for moving without the ball and getting through screens like a SF this off-season from NBA coaches.

    Everything is going to plan. Get those sweetheart extensions for Tari and Bari next year. :D
