    We had 3 years of silas. A unique experience that no other fanbase will get a taste of.

    You are not alone. I wanted Scoot but I’m ok with 4. Amen or Walker at 4 would be ok with me.

    Yep. I expect him to be in Denver by 2025.

    We have Alpi but are we going to develop him properly? Or are we going to prioritize players who were drafted higher but haven't been nearly as effective?

    I actually think it may be ok. The Spurs are lacking any significant young talent.

    That doesn't sound important when you have Victor, but there's nobody to sign. Kyrie? No chance Pop deals with him.

    They are going to have to trade for stars to go with him. Vassell gets extended in a year, Keldon is making bank already, and tre is a free agent. Their trade values are limited.

    So the Spurs will be left with emptying their draft capital which will ultimately put them in a rough place with any bad luck such as injuries.

    Luka is on the Mavs and they can't get in the playoffs.

    Then you have one of the oldest coaches in San Antonio and no proven heir apparent.

    I think they have to go the slow route and wait 2 years before trying to add more stars...

    I have this feeling that Harden wants MDA to be the next coach in Philly. That would be the end of them for sure.

    Agree in the sense that they just started their rebuild. So he's their first piece. Other teams (even ours) are looking for that 2nd and 3rd. But that 1st piece may be the best of the recent lot: Cavs, Magic, Thunder, Rockets, and Pistons.

    Wembaynaya is a ? At this point Zion will have a immensely short career and Luka traps you in a heliocentric playstyle that is very limiting in the playoffs as he has the same short comings as Harden in that he sucks at every other aspect of basketball outside of shelf creation scoring and playmaking. He isn't versatile as he is a stationary player like Harden without the ball in his hands and rests on defense often. Obviously he's a far more prolific offensive player than Green but I doubt it's something that will lead to rings for Dallas.

    What Green can be and will follow the mold of hopefully is a more athletically gifted Booker. That is a possibility that is within reason. It doesn't mean it will happen but he has the natural talent to be that.

    I don't know, he didn't have Embiid and Maxey before.

    Move Harris for 2 decent 3/d guys and they may improve...

    Jalen Green is a p*ssy.

    Soft and feminine, I don’t even think he likes basketball. He’s too worried about breaking a fingernail. We would’ve been better off if OKC got our pick in 2021, unless we show a willingness to cash-in on this bum asset in a trade.

    Pop seemed to have an affinity for Harden over the years. Maybe he goes there. His women would make that drive down I-10 on demand.
