    Because people conflate what that argument was, I don't deal in bullshit...if you don't spit out the truth it becomes a poor narrative.

    The Rockets taking Scoot at four is a no brainer if they are lucky enough to get a chance. I don't see Amen as a fit. And I am totally against bringing in an over the hill Harden to teach the young guys bad habits.

    Can't believe how naive this fanbase still is after last year's disaster. Banchero was supposed to fall to 3 and didn't happen. Scoot is special enough not to pass on just like Banchero is.

    Likely true, but sometimes teams do make bad choices. Don't get your hopes up though.

    Only if he completely shat the bed in workouts. Even then they will not just turn a blind eye on his G-League performance and upside.

    Upside, maybe, but his G-league performance was not overwhelming.

    Nope, not buying it. Not getting my hopes up. We're ending up with the worst of the bunch (Miller).

    Technically we thought he was ours until the last day or two. Jabari was the #1 to take player all year until they went to workouts and realized he sucks.

    I think it's more than enough for Siakam or Mikal Bridges.

    I agree. That’s probably the best they can do. And that should theoretically be a pretty good team.

    It’s possible

    size is King .

    webmy
    Miller
    Amen

    all have a few inches at least on scoot . Who’s the last Team to win a ring with their best player under 6’5” … doesn’t happen much

    The vibe around here was actually complaining because we were stuck with Banchero, everyone thought he was going 3rd until the night of the draft.

    There is approximately a -9850% chance that Scoot falls to 4

    Yeah, true. Clutch in particular was very "Smith over Bachero" and probably majority on this forum shared the sentiment.

    I was fine with either, and I still think both will be very good players. I also liked Ivey. Anyone but Chet was my thinking.

    I did not want Jabari, and I super hope we can all laugh at me about that one day.

    I know it was crazy. I was a huge Banchero Buddy and was so excited about the chance that he could have been a Rocket.
