    Half the speculation is true. The other half is for ratings. I know it has me wanting to watch the draft tomorrow. How you?

    The heat is making everyone irritated in Htown. They will be OK later.

    He most definitely classifies as a troll when it comes to TRob.

    Which would you rather have right now: an unscratched $1 scratch ticket or a scratched $1 ticket that shows you won $1?

    Irrelevant since we don't know what would have happened to Patterson's value had he stayed.

    I know every time you hear Trob's name it pisses you off. But honestly what has the kid done to you to deserve that treatment. His whole family died and every time he gets to feel a little at home his home gets ripped out from underneath him. He's a kid who makes a lot of money but he is still a kid who would probably give it all up to have his Mom back. It's not his fault he gat traded for your favorite player.

    Why trade now when someone may likely up the ante tomorrow night.

    ^Agreed. I don't mind trading TRob, but i don't have any negative feelings towards him. Carl just can't decide whether he wants to be a good member, a troll, or a brat. He is hovering towards brat on the PPat issue.

    Nothing against Thomas Robinson. The lack of basketball talent is not a crime. I am simply educating people who don't understand the objective evidence showing how bad he is at NBA basketball. It is all a part of the larger discussion about analytics.

    Draftnet has Nogueira, Karasev, Adetokoubo, Schroeder all going before the 19&20th pick. Rudy Gobert would be the pretty much the only big name international player left.

    Draft express has only Adetokoubo, Karasev going before 19&20th, leaving us the rest of the international players to choose from.

    Should be a interesting draft! Hope we can get one of those first rounders.

    Do you think patterson with 1 year left in his deal would net us the 19th pick in the draft?

    Trade won't go down until after draft night. If a trade does go down, Cleveland will be picking for us. Nothing will go down because if the trade goes down and the person we're trying to draft ends up taking we'll be stuck with a pick we don't want. All of the GMs in the league are ready to dial up and put through the trade just before the pick is taken. If the guy we're looking at ends up available at #20, we'll trade with Chicago, if at #19, we'll trade with Cleveland. The ideas is that the trade is setup. They just have to get in touch and let it be known that they'll go through with it.

    You're "educating people"? Well, you know what they say about those who can't do

    Yet there are qualified GM's that seemingly are willing to give up a first for him. Busty Morris last season. T Rob this season. You've gotten too emotional with this. Time to step back and be at least respectful to a kid that has worked hard to get to where he's at.

    If it's those international guys listed which the Rox are interested in then they won't be getting any of them at the #20 pick. They're all top 18, especially the Greek kid.

    I don't know how loaded this draft is but #20 picks don't always work out. And, obviously, if it doesn't turn out to be an international player who can wait a year then the Rox will have to release that #20 pic to clear cap space.

    This is a gamble. Morey--again--is willing to sell off and refuse a lot of pieces to get D12. I just hope if Josh Smith is on the table that Morey will not pass over him to try to get D12, and then not get D12. The downsize to taking big risks is that you doesn't always win.
