    Let's wait and see how they go in an actual NBA game before getting too excited?

    Time will tell.

    At this point TF needs to spend on player development like Morey begged for over the last few years.

    Move House and Gordon and try to move Wall.

    The elephant in the room is when do we move our PF/C for picks… lots of interest in Wood.

    It is funny that just one year ago, we had no young talent at the start of the season, but now we have a starting five of young talents in KPJ-JG-KMJ-Usman and Sengun besides Josh C, Tate, and Wood (both 25).

    Never understood why fans need to temper other fans excitement or expectations.Like how the fans feel has any effect on the actual outcome.
    If that helps your anxiety about these guys potentially sucking them do what eases your mind.


    Don’t worry, this lit ass party will still be jumping when y’all decide it’s safe.

    We are fans. This **** is supposed to be fun. Let some of us have our excitement. This ain’t real life. It’s entertainment. We can count our chickens before they hatch and be dead ass wrong and it won’t mean a thing.

    We turnt to the max. You wanna be cautious, do you.

    The Celtics drafted Bill Russell, Larry Bird, and John Havlicek and they each stayed with the team their whole careers. Same for the Lakers with Magic, Kobe, and West (though Kobe was acquired in a draft day trade). Tim Duncan and David Robinson for the Spurs. Hakeem didn't stay quite his whole career with the Rockets, but stuck around as long as it mattered. The Rockets will be very lucky if they get as much out of this draft as any of those players provided for their teams.
