    Really?

    Why would you even suggest that? I know you despise me because of my Harden takes but why would you ever think I would do something like that on purpose?

    Yes, that happens to every big man in the league. Specifically when you are the only big on the court.

    Yeah these games mean nothing. However Cade's height wont change unless he grows a couple more inches. 6'8 pg is different from 6'6 pg.

    Barnes tbh I had him neck and neck with Green and I would have preferred trading down if it meant another lotto pick. I'm really high on this kid like I said he reminds me so much of Giannis.

    I had almost forgot because I hadn’t heard that for at least the last 5-10 minutes. Thanks for the reminder!

    Giddey looks like a legit 6'7/6'8 and seems to be as athletic as Cade. He the real Cade Cunningham lol

    Because I recall you used it another time.

    But chalked it up to spelling error.

    2 in a row, not so much.

    I just love his attitude. The interview with him was amazing. If he ever develops a good shot he can be special.
    Regardless he will be a true leader.

    I think he will tho, he is no Simmons. You can see the love for basketball with Scottie which I've never seen with Ben.

    I personally always preferred Green over Cade. His ceiling is definitely higher.

    Cade is smaller than advertised and just as slow as I remember.

    Cade has a better shot and better defense than Giddey, but this Cade defense is not wowing me. Cade's lateral quickness looks kind of suspect.

    No wonder Detroit was saying the were wowed by Green's workout. Detroit got bullied into picking Cade.

    yeah, I'm looking at him getting blown by on the perimeter.

    I've said this at another time, Weaver was in a horrible position. Even if he legitimately thought Jalen Green was better, he still had to pick Cade. Their fanbase would riot. Everyone would riot. And if Cade then turns out to be that guy he's fired for sure.
    If Jalen Green ends up better than Cade everyone's going to be like "yeah, everyone thought Cade was the real deal" and Weaver will keep his job.

    Did you know Dwight Howard and Josh Smith played AAU ball together?

    Okay. I use the same phone with the same autocorrect. You can chalk it up to just me not revisiting a post I typed for proofreading?

    Smartphone keyboards usually make the same autocorrect mistakes.

    In pretty sure most know my post history and would assume it was a autocorrect mistake.

    Once I got deep in study on Green I was scared Detroit was going to go Jalen at #1. Jalen can become a locked in defender with uber quickness. Cade only has the height and weight for some paint defense not so much on the perimeter. Both can shoot and score. Cade edge in the passing. I hope they are both great because both franchises need a stud.
