    I say we let the author give it a G since Riley godfathered and gangster’d Stone. Our boy is moving up the ranks though and that’s an education you cannot get from anywhere else.

    Meh.....I’m fine with how things turned out.

    Maybe could’ve gotten a better return for Allen and Levert....maybe

    But other than that I think they’ve done pretty well.

    Allen and Levert may have kept this team on the back end of the lottery. Olidipo was either going to return to form and help this be a pretty good team/and or net a good return or her was going to suck and this team would be lottery bound.

    Because they’re all suckers who couldn’t accept responsibility for the mess they created.

    Yes, you can see the rigorous military discipline Westbrook has brought to the Wizards really paying off now as opposed to harden the long haired hippie beatnik lollygagging his way through life

    Just gotta get used to the fact that the Rockets are bad organization now. They are irrelevant going forward.

    I'm so glad to see that. Their pick could be valuable to us if we miss out on a top 4 pick.

    Superstars free agents are not coming.

    John Collins, Alonzo Ball and Lauri Markanen should be coming.

    Aftering acquiring free agents this summer, 2023 could be good.

    You don’t rely on draft picks because it’s traded. You rely on free agents.

    We have the 'lose all your star players, gm, coach, get back players you then also give away because they're not that good, and accummulate late round draft picks so you can stay mediocre for a long time' system.

    Nobody said it was GOOD system, but its the system we got.
