    Forget that. We could have had the real Draymond Green if Morey was as good as Myers

    not gonna lie - i was excited at the royce white pick. maybe, if for no other reason it was a boom or bust scenario - it's always fun to hit the lotto - and with 3 picks in the first 18? why the hell not?

    Once in a generation talent? Whoa there buddy. He's a very very good player but I'm not willing to put him on that pedestal.

    You basically just said he's on the the level of lebron/KD/Curry

    I'm not buying that he plays on a great team all those guys look better than they are including curry.

    You really think Green could do what Harden did last year as the number one guy with no other starts around him?

    I don't.

    He's a very very solid second or third option but he can't be your best player on a championship team imo.

    He didn't fail because of his illness. He failed because he was lazy and a entitled kid expecting playing time that he didn't earn. He was out of shape his entire time here and in his other stints.

    Rockets had their Draymond Green and let him sign with Clips. Now they have to tank to get Ben Simmons

    tbh, White probably has more innate talent than Green. Brewer and Jones probably have more innate talent than Green as well.

    Green is where he is now because he works overtime practicing and studying film.

    Even after he got paid this summer, he said he was watching film for hours everyday, trying to figure out the passes he was missing.

    The guy has supreme determination... is that talent?

    We would have had a better draft than the Warriors had White panned out.

    If your goal is a find the best ISO offensive player, sure, get Harden and jus t blame all the other guys.

    But Draymond Green is a game changer on defensive match-ups and light years ahead of Harden on defense.

    It is interesting that people are laser-focused on offense and completely ignore the defense. NBA propaganda

    Royce White would have been our Draymond Green is he weren't so slow, didn't have mental problems, and didn't suck. Good point.

    Royce White has/had some talent - but he was a scam artist...

    He parlayed some moderate success into some guaranteed money and then decided to screw around and party while making excuses for not delivering on expectations....

    silly rabbit... you should have held out for 200M from Adidas!

    :) LMAO! ;)

    Nosebleed not responding to you on this. Meant for moron man.

    f he is a moron then 1 in 6 Americans will join him. I get paid pretty well for being a moron myself. I used to be terrified of flying. Cost me enough for 17 years. But, unlike Royce I decided to help myself and faced the fear. I then went on to a new job and maintained either gold or platinum status on Continental Airlines for 10 years. The fear of flying is a dibilitating fear. Your minds natural reaction to perceived danger is fight or flight. When you fly and your mind experiences fear neither of those options are available to you. That causes your fear to snowball. Once you feel that level of fear you do not want to be in the position to feel it again thus the reason 1 in 6 Americans are terrified to fly despite the safety. Get some education on the fear before labeling someone next time.
