    Concerning and unavoidable given Portland’s options. It can be both. I’m just saying the signs of added risk were long apparent before he was drafted.

    would you say he was riskier than dejuan blair? a player who played 7 years without an acl. Injuries are impossible to predict. Look at what happened to embiid this year. How fluky was that .

    I feel as if a blanket yes or no wouldn’t do the question or my stance justice. On a medical level, I don’t know enough to say who was more likely to suffer a knee injury. I would say that given the play styles involved, the wear and tear aspect would worry me much more for Roy.

    Injuries are impossible to predict reliably as a general, but some have increased rates of reoccurrence or risk of compensating injuries. The specificities of that are best left for an appropriate specialist. I’m not qualified to even speculate. My pre-existing injury concerns with Roy come from near unanimous reporting of team medical staff opinions.

    I follow Kacy Sager on Twitter and she made a great point about Lebron being local because he's Lebron. You don't think he could get to LA in a day or two if needed too? He's been running his LA company for how many years without ever playing for a West cost team. I don't think going to Philly/Houston or wherever is going to upset that.

    Also she said this will probably be Lebrons real last chance and do you think the Lakers team is built to take out Houston/Golden State?

    Walkers and Bridges both obviously in play at 10, Milton in play at 26

    :laugh::laugh: Jtown with the hottakes on the preceding page. I love CP, but best PG of all time? Curry is his comtemporary and is more impactful.
    Hell Harden is a PG in everything but name and he was the best player on that Rockets team.

    I guess with Colang gone, he is afraid he won't be getting paid under the table anymore. Thankfully the sleezeball is (hopefully) moving on.

    That is a very good thing for the Sixers.

    If the Sixers are unable to land one of the big time players in free agency I would absolutely be interested in Jabari Parker. He is a restricted free agent but he is a guy who can score and would fit right in with the young core the Sixers are building.

    I forgive you. Unless you want Porter. Then not.

    If i HAD to choose, I'd just pick SGA.

    But Smith is a PF.

    EDIT: Well ****.

    Very here for this.

    Here’s a take for you. MPJ wouldn’t be the first Porter on my board.

    I'm not a fan either, the more I try to find someone to fall in love with, the more I wind up just saying **** it, just pick the guy with the most upside.

    Think they’ll just go with the safe “NBA ready” guy. Didn’t the Colangelo burner account say Brett Brown was tired of developing guys? :laugh:

    I just can't. He looks borderline uncoordinated with the ball.

    Mikal would be alright. He’s long and probably will be a knock down shooter. Miles would kind of piss me off.

    I honestly can't imagine why. He's every bit as intriguing a prospect as Mikal, any of his weaknesses are offset by his athletic ability and age (he's still only 20).
