Stop drinking the Flip kook-aid Sid. This draft was abysmal. This guy may end up taking more shots than Kobe, which is saying something!!

It's really fun to listen to agents talk – he goes to the basket like Lebron James! Too bad we can't get a team, any sport, players as good as their agents say they are.

Nothing against Marquis, but he leads the NL in walks You can't walk five batters a game with his stuff and keep winning. Couple that with a career winning percentage of .577 (79-58) in the first half and .438 in the second, and history suggests the party is over.

the plus side is Shabazz has the ability to get better, he is not one of those players who peaked in college... The negative side is will the leopard change his spots? do we have a Duane Wade or a JR Rider?.a major concern about passing on McCollum who fell in our lap is he is a better shooter and defender and was compared to Curry. While no one wants to hear it,, Rubio has a contract that gives him unrestricted free agency in the near future.. McCollum is sure to be good player and would have been insurance at point as well as the fact he has a 6/9 wing span and plays a lot bigger than 6-3 He would have filled the 2 guard just fine without making a trade that made a competitor in our division stronger.

I like the Bazzy pick. Some players get scrutinized unfairly by the media, and he is one of those. Lets hope Pek gets signed and we pick up Reddick too. Playoffs here we come

How can Duffy say the number ONE high school basketball player in the country is underrated?

many "talented" players have failed to be successful in the nba for many of the same reasons associated with mr muhammad. Possible his potential is being blown out of proportion as well.....

Sid, Sid, lol. This whole draft was lousy, in 3 years 80% of this draft won't be in the league at all.
