    Dumbasses are just extrapolating their hate on DM towards anything he's done as GM.

    This is true. There are a few posters here that pick someone to complain about, and then they do it over and over again day after day. I think these people are mentally ill.

    Dekker has potential.

    Of course people on here are gonna label him a bust even though he hasn't had a chance to prove anything yet really. But there would be people on here complaining if we got the No. 1 pick and drafted Ben Simmons that he's a bust the moment we drafted him.

    :rolleyes:

    So you think Morey's only strategy is to draft players?
    More like the opposite. Looks for an impact rookie and uses other measures to find a rotational player (free agency/ trade)

    Excellent news. Let's get the kid some D-League playing time, and let him develop.

    Honestly didn't like this pick at all, hope he proves me wrong and shuts me up. Was hoping we draft Grant or another pg (can't remember off top of my head). But if he can turn into parsons lite and replace Brewer, omg.

    I hope you realized long ago and not just now that there's plenty of mental illness on this board to go around.

    Plenty.

    As for Dekker, I think he can be a good player. Morey just seems to have a talent for drafting Great White Hopes (and then later trading them for a "physical pending" draft pick ;) ) who have back issues.

    Wonder if JB will start handing minutes out to KJ, Dekker, Harrell. Would like to atleast see what they have even if it means missing the playoffs (which by the look of things, we'll end up 6th-8th anyway unless something major happens). I just think, especially with the level of play from top 4 seeds of the west, that growing experience for your young bench players who will develop into your role players is more important than a frustrating 1st round exit.
