    If it was you, you'd make an article about how multiple mid-lotto picks are worth more than an overall 1st pick.

    In NCAA right?

    Toney Douglas has assisted and scored in nba level, yet I didn't any complaints of the lack of excitement over him?!

    More like an essay of how undrafted players are going to turn out better than drafted ones...

    Please stay here, i like witty comments. You do have nice ones, see how many posters quoted it. If anything else, most of the post are just jest mainly due to the season has not started yet.

    Every team that blows up their roster, and fills it with young rookies could be considered the next OKC. What the Rockets are and what they are doing is nothing special.

    The experiment they did the past two seasons(try to bundle trade value players for a superstar) was more abnormal than what they doing now which is the blow the whole thing up and start from scratch.

    Theyre like OKC only in terms of potential potential.

    We havent even seen these guys display potential at the nba level yet. Because the season hasnt started.

    If they can do that, then theyll have potential- The nba success kind.


    That said, our players are the better ones out of the draft. They have a real chance. People arent thinking this out of thin air.

    lolol... Hey, you'd never know! Maybe in the 2013 NBA Rule Book you need to do bench press if you fouled someone :grin:

    Although I feel we have a lot of potential on this roster, I just hope it's complementary in a positional sense. White, Jones and Motie could feasibly be our 3-4-5, but they could also end up all being 4s.

    Hopefully we get a stud PG and/or C in next year's draft. Snagging a guy like Bynum could also potentially be a franchise changer

    Great hype for a rookie who went undrafted and most likely will start off his career in the D League.

    Half the people here can't even spell the name of our likely backup PG...

    Is it L-i-v-i-n-t-o-n-e, L-i-v-i-n-g-s-t-o-n or L-i-v-i-n-g-s-t-o-n-e?

    Oh yeah, he plays the 2 right? Didn't we waive him already?

    Machado bench pressed 17 times, made comments about Lin that was taken out of context, born and raised in NY, scored 20 points in a SL game, more assists than our other rookies, better scorer than previously indicated.....

    Could someone post what size of shoes Machado wears???

    You mean to tell me that you wouldn't trade Lamb, Jones, and White for Anthony Davis?

    In a hearbeat!

    Did you know Rockets DID traded three first round picks on draft day for a 7th overall pick??

    Without google and wiki, who was that 7th pick??
