    Philly are a jump shooting Juggernaut. Imagine if they kept Payton as well as Noel, MCW, Jerami Grant, McDaniels (okay if left wiiiide open) Tony Wroten.

    The upside is incredible.

    No one wants quick fixes like BC era so relax and enjoy the ride.
    Dude, You are doing exactly what you did during BC era. Trying to spin things and blindly support. Just because the kid has a wing span he is not automatically good. Big Val was a known commodity around NBA. He has talent. This kid is unknown to everyone and was picked too high. You want a risk, divvied your big chip and use the smaller ones and go for the risk.

    Come on Son, I know you are better than this and know more about this game.

    not to be morbid, but in light of tonight's honorary draft pick, I hope Bruno has been screened for Marfans (normal body, lonnnnng limbs)
    Well, keep in mind that the vast majority of people that fit that description don't have it.

    It was just a throwaway comment to say he's a real project, remember the Greek Freek was meant to be not even close to being ready, as in waaaay more raw than your usual project... but he was fine out there on the court. Not saying the Toucan Terror (deliberately mediocre nickname) will be like him, but who knows.

    Can't compare. JV was a consensus top 5 pick who only fell to Raps cause of uncertainty around his buyout. Fans were ticked cause we still had Bargnani on our minds. This is an entirely different scenario. I understand why people don't like it.

    If anyone's interested, it looks like Bruno JUST set up a twitter account. As in within the last hour.

    Dude people knew who Val was. He was on mocks and the DX big board throughout the process. I and several others more vocal than me were on record wanting Val.

    I don't know a single person across three Raps websites who has so much as mentioned Bruno.

    And the bigger question is value. Now that we know we were the one who gave Bruno the promise, not sure who else was going to pick him.

    This smells more like BC bidding against himself than anything.

    Such a Spurs pick (which is maybe why the Hawks got him since their coach used to be an assistant coach with the Spurs)
