    He would have held a press conference after the draft talking about how close they got to trading for senguin

    That's alright, pick up the grammatical error because you're aware of how idiotic you sound choosing draft picks over a contending team. I don't even care i've had multiple drinks so far, I'll give you this one. You know why?

    It must hurt really bad deep down knowing you'll never experience the Morey contender conundrum for a very, very, very long time with this sorry sack of sh*t franchise. But hehehe you'll get those draft picks you were desperately after heheh.

    Don't worry though. Not only will the Stone-lead team not beat the Warriors, they won't beat (Insert any of the remaining 28 teams in the NBA) regularly. Much wow. Such amazing post-Morey.

    No solution - Tilman's fault.

    Murky future - Tilman's fault.

    Flawed basketball theory - aka the only one who came close to beating the greatest team every assembled besides the potential greatest individual player ever.

    No head coach - LMFAO at that being the GM's fault.

    Are you really this dense? I mean really.

    Goodbye GM - Tilman's fault.

    Goodbye star player - Tilman's fault.

    Goodbye CEO - Tilman's fault.

    Goodbye head coach - Tilman's fault.

    See a recurring trend here bucko? Only difference with your (used correctly) and mine, is one is based in fantasy. And one is based on actual fact.

    You know what’s interesting? Fans here and the media talk about Morey as if he’s the GM of the Sixers? He’s not. Elton Brand is. Morey is the President of Basketball Operations for the Sixers. I’d assume that Brand makes a lot of personnel and contractual decisions and reports to Morey. If so why does Morey get all the credit and Brand is never mentioned? Likewise Keith Jones is the Senior Vice President of Basketball relations in the Rockets org chart. If this is the case Stone would then report to Jones? Unless Stone is the GM/President of BB ops in the rockets org chart. Regardless Morey is given too much credit leaving Brand the GM out of the picture. Just something to muse about.

    Quite emotional there. Remember you’re the one who started it and i’m just finishing it. Didn’t bother reading your whole long retort since it’s not revolved around facts. Shows how little you know of the situation. Cool bro.

    That's ok, I wouldn't expect someone who was proved idiotic in the first instance, to read the second smackdown.

    The only takeaway for you though is - MaH dRaFt PiCkS.

    Enjoy them :) especially when you tank an entire season and pick........ someone who isn't even bench-ready hahahahahaha. MAH DRAFT PICKS

    It really doesn't seem that way. I don't believe we have a President of Basketball operations on this team.
    It seems like we have a GM that is President of Basketball operations unless it is Patrick Fertitta.
    Looks like Eli Witus and Keith Jones report to Stone.

    Also definitely seems like Morey is in charge of making all roster moves right now. I have no idea what Brand does for them as "gm".

    What’s the difference between signing Theis and signing Dalembert besides the years

    Yeah i think you’re right in terms of Stone. I don’t get the sixers org hierarchy but Brand is never mentioned but he’s the GM. But regardless it’s a team effort in terms of personnel decisions and contractual negotiations. Many people forget this. Sure the President has the final say but Morey wasn’t the only one making decisions when he was in Houston and likewise in Philly. And the same applies to Stone. Just as in coaching there’s a whole staff of specialists. And just as in a team with several players. We as a society love to put the onus on one person. I suppose it’s the whole “everything falls on leadership” thing. But just interesting to think about.

    Folks do not get that they were one team, very likely made plans together.

    He would've never made the Sengun trade, we'd have Aaron Gordon or Richaun Holmes right now or something.

    Morey would offer poison pill contracts to promising potential
    players like Jeremy Lin and Asik.

    Then use that bait to reel in a fish like James Harden who was coming
    off the bench for the Thunder.

    Then use that bait to lure a Dwight Howard caliber player of that time, now.

    Meanwhile losing the original pieces of Lin and Asik

    Addition by subtraction. Not much in drafting and nurturing our own in that.

    He would have traded those draft picks and futures for a star player and scrubs.

    He would go to Philly and leave the organization who has the worst owner in the league the first chance he got

    Basically dominate the market. Def not destroy a championship level team and turn it into the worse team in the league but we know who the real problem there is.

    I don't think Les and Morey were very good gamblers when it came to talent. When they did, they got Royce White. What I am curious about though is who would Morey have drafted this past offseason.

    Well they drafted:

    1) Springer...who I felt going into the draft were clones of
    Cam Thomas and Josh Christopher. Each very similar as Josh and
    Cam the streaky shooters and Springer a slightly better defender.

    I saw a clip of Cade Cunningham driving to the basket and lowering
    his shoulder vs Springer. Springer bouncing 1 or 2 feet back. Cade
    with an easy layup. Commentator saying, and that's against a good
    defender.

    Nets (Cam Thomas), 76ers (Jaden Springer) and Rockets (Josh Christopher) are trying
    to find the next James Harden. IMO
    __________

    2) Felip Petrusev: Morey may have moved up to get Sengun?
    __________

    3) Bassey: a player I wanted the Rockets to draft. Didn't play summer league
    due to contract dispute. Injured during preseason; but the team praises
    Bassey as the steal of the draft from practices and the few minutes
    he has played.


    ------
    I feel Morey still reads CF's and read me praising Bassey; but I wouldn't have
    drafted Josh Christopher or Jaden Springer. Clones of them coming in further
    drafts. Jaden Hardy being one.
