please.....rivers is good but NOT THAT GOOD
If you don't like my analysis's then stop reading my posts. It's not that hard to do. I watched Austin Rivers during the all american game and was impressed, then I did research, watched some youtube, and some game tape. I said he has potential to be like them. If you have seen him at all you would see it. And what's your beef with me following college basketball? I'm pretty sure that you just need some cookies to settle down.

where did i say i had a problem with u following college ball? i wish i could too but just don't have the time.
u said u follow ncaa ball like a 2nd religion so u've seen more of jimmer than me. thats fine w/e
so i'm just wondering if u followed us high school ball the same way to say that hes got that much potential, instead of just going off of what scouts say (and i'm not even sure scouts go that far). turns out i've seen as much of rivers as you have and i don't see HOF potential. differences of opinion and we can leave it like that.

I said I see potential in him. Nowhere did I say I believe he is going to be a HOF player. All I said is I see some Rose and Wall in him. Whatever, you can think what you want about Rivers, and I will continue to rave about him being a monster someday.

so ya....like i said....d-rose in this 3rd year is looking like a future HOFer. i don't think anyone is going to dispute that. so u r saying rivers has HOF potential.

and john wall is only in his 1st year so we still don't know what he's capable of. so i odn't know how u can compare rivers potential to someone that is still tryint to reach his own potential.

i do think he will be a great player, but not someone so special worth another year of tanking.

Don't put words in my mouth, I said he has the POTENTIAL to be like them. Do you even know what potential means? Your just trolling my posts and trying to (but doing a horrible job) at trying to prove me wrong. You've gotten to the point we're you look pathetic for even trying.

Please stop following my posts around if you have nothing to contribute to the argument, it's just annoying. i'm sorry for seeing potential in a player. I'll refrain myself from doing so, because apparently I am claiming that players are going to be hall of famers because they have potential to play like a certain player. Come off of it.

proving you wrong? ok. what is there to prove wrong. its differences of OPINION. theres no right or wrong. theres agree or disagree. good or bad.
looks like ur doing a horrible job of reading comprehension and i can't believe i'm schooling you on this.
you said rivers has the potential to be like rose. and i said so far in rose's career hes looking like a HOFer. so its basically saying rivers has HOF potential. what is so hard to understand about that!
do u know what potential means?

I am done explaining myself to you, it's a waist of my time. You can chose to interpret my words how you want, and I'll continue to explain them to you as best as possible. You're making something out of nothing, you're just pissed of because what I say makes sense and you don't want to hear any of it, so instead you try and misconstrue my words to make my claims look outrageous, but in reality you just look outrageous.

PS - Trying to use a comeback from a previous post makes you look incompetent.

Well, he probably could beat up my dad, but then I'd have to beat him up for beating up my dad.

If we draft a Center or PF i'll be pretty pissed. And this draft pick is extremely important and Kanter has had knee issues.
Meh, look at what the Bulls have now with Noah. It may be worth it develop a C prospect with a high ceiling that can actually specialize in post defense and help defense.

Do you also mean like the Hawks have with Horford, the Magic have with Howard, the Celtics had with Perkins, the Lakers have with Bynum, the Nuggets have with Nene, etc...

Yeah, noah looks great but what about all the Centers that don't work out? It's my preferance. I'd rather draft a PG/SF and sign or trade for a Center who has at least a bit of a track record in the NBA.

there's a big list of them in the available centres thread. let me know if you think you see a guy that we can reasonably trade for that would help.

Honestly there isn't much and I see where you're coming from. But hopefully something can be done, I seriously don't want to waste a top 3 pick (hopefully) on a Center. It's just harder to develop Centers and takes longer then say guards. If we drop out of the top 5 then I can say why not depending on who's left but if we're #2 or #3 I really hope we can get a PG or SF.

Is there a Center that is a top 5 in this draft other then maybe Kanter? And how much has he played in the last 8-9 months?

Yeah - and he's renting out my basement. I'm not sure where you're intending to go with that question.

random but if BC could trade and get another pick around 9-12...i hope they get Kawhi Leonard as he's suppose to be one of the best defenders in this draft
