    I expected this, because you have to back all your players in the worst of times. RS knows how tough it will be in the next few years. He is being politically correct. I sense that Houston will try and package their picks to move up the draft, if they drop out of the top 4 spots. It's more likely that they will try to go the Wood route again.

    Wall is(was) a great player and has great veteran presence, but his contract is an anchor on our development as a whole towards becoming this competitive team that Stone talks about. I'm not sure what the answer is but we really need to move on from Wall.

    PF will probably represent Houston at the lottery. Stone and Silas will be the fall guys. Mr. LTS will take the cake.

    I hope that the management and ownership will pick a high upside player in the top 4 , if they luck out.

    Pick Cade at 1, use the other two picks and try to move up further for one better player is my advice to them.

    It's sad that Stephen Silas had to watch youtube videos of whoever Rafael was signing lol. Should spend some money on that scouting department that could of gave coach something a lot better than him having to watch youtube videos lol.

    I didn't watch, so this is just from reading the Twitter quotes, but there was a whole lot of, "We'll see" and, "We're not really sure yet." Even if your strategy is to maintain flexibility as long as possible, this really has at least a tinge of, "We hope to figure this thing out as we go." I would much rather hear some version of, "We have a plan and we know exactly how we're going to get there."

    It wasn't that bad, they used a 30 day free trial of youtube preimum without ads. So for at least that month, he didn't have to click through.

    Please sign Kelly Olynyk.

    Build around Tate, Porter Jr., Martin Jr., Wood, and hopefully a top 4 pick.
