    So, being a solid role player is worthless. I understand.

    You are still funny. Almost every selection is based on a mix of stats and opinion. One team might value a player much more than another. Based on video and workouts, they might THINK that he is a better player. Why would we even need scouts if you just pick the best statistical player? Dont you have to weigh in the degree of difficulty? Shane Battier doesnt get great numbers but helps make a team better. Plus what about the players that are a "project". They dont always have great numbers coming in. Narrow minded people are always right though I guess.....BTW you arent basing on facts....you are basing on probability. Either way......this argument can go either way. That means 50:50 in your language.

    Nothing to see here folks.

    No Jeremy Lin/Arian Foster story happening here.

    The thing I hate is he manages to break away and has the opportunity for an easy layup but passes the ball.

    He just seems to be rushing things every play. When he settles down and stays within himself, he does very very well.

    PG play in our summer league games is really bringing the team down. Maybe this Lin idea isn't so bad.

    Ya, this guy sucks. Better than Fortson, but still awful!

    I really hope we can get Ish in there for the rest of summer league

    If Kendall Marshall made it to the league, then why not Scott Machando?

    Thats actually a really good question?

    I have to see Kendall Marshall play first, before i make final on him. But he could have been a huge reach for the Suns too( like Augustin with the Bobcats back in 2010), and its obvious the Suns wanted Lamb. Because they went out and threw max money at Eric Gordon

    Those of you that are hating on him and doubting him should be ashamed of yourselves. He's a hard working kid that have always been overlooked all his life. He is better than half the players in the 2nd round. At least give him a chance before some of you start bashing on him. He never did anything wrong to any of you. All he wants is to work hard and have a chance to showcase his talent in the NBA and I know he can do it.

    We are giving him a chance, he just makes it hard on us to cheer for him.

    Yeah, lots of big issues...
    -Picks up dribble at bad times
    -Lobs interior passes that are easy to deflect
    -Bad on break
    -Midget T-Rex

    This is a basketball BBS. As long as the criticism isn't mean spirited, I don't see a problem.
