    And when I say "don't be a punk" I don't mean you. I mean the Hornets.

    Good god people,calm the hell down,you guys are acting like we just traded away the whole team for Bass.

    If my memory serves me correctly,2nd rounders are pretty much garbage for the most part anyway.

    Can anyone even tell me where our #2 from last year is right now?I think I even forgot his name.I think it was pickens or something.

    Im pleased with the draft.Im not totally floored with it,but what did you guys expect???

    If they were "great players" they would have been gone in the early first round.

    I wonder if Gomes and Turiaf had some off court issues, thus the draft. Not suggesting anything, but maybe they tested poorly on the intelligence tests or something else.

    Chris Paul, JR Smith, and Mags are solid cornerstones and could help us bring in FA's. We are not in bad shape. Remember we are not going to the playoffs next year but we are doing a good job so far in improveing our team.

    Bristow just

    said that we are done with the trades

    Biggest steal of the draft. By far. And a missed opportunity for us.

    Bass could wind up being good. I just think there were better players out there.

    Not the end of the world.

    I think we will try pretty hard to sign Simmons.

    Only time will tell. Based on what Jay Bilas said about Chris Taft, Bass may be more NBA ready than Taft. Let's give our picks a chance before us "experts" say woulda, coulda, shoulda.
    Did you know that 5 out of 4 people have trouble with fractions?

    That's the beauty of cap space. You can overpay for Simmons if you have to.

    If we overpay for a FA, it should be Joe Johnson.

    Taft finally drafted. Taft, Ellis, and Diogu all takein by GS. I really hate that team now because of Baron but they did pretty well in the draft.

    The Suns will match any offer for Johnson so we won't be able to sign him.
