I don't think I've heard such inane and obviously unanswerable questions since Desert Shield: when are you going to invade Iraq, where, and with how many troops?

I think Robert Sacre from Gonzaga could actually be a nice pick up if he's still available when we're on the clock at 46. He bullied people in the WCC, which as a conference was admittedly weak as piss, but I could see him coming in to the league to play a Reggie Evans type role - come in, do work, rough people up and get the crowd going a bit - but I'm still waiting on the 46th pick tourney! haha
So after the interview with Monty can we just say that Rivers is the 10th pick. Monty said we need someone to score and create when the game is late. Length at the rim = Davis, shot creater = Rivers, size = Hamilton with the 46th pick. Seems to solve all the problems except pg where we can go after Collison or Dragic or even Ramon Sessions.
Select a guy just because he is LSU or native of New Orleans or Louisiana? No way! We must seek the best player possible! I would look for Scott Machado, if he is available. He can be a steal!
Didn't I drop a hint about Justin Hamilton earlier? Pick and Pop/Roll. We need some floor stretchers and size. Big man that can shoot make it easier to drive the lane. In the Slam Video him he even shows 3pt range. Geaux Tigers.
Dusan Cantekin,Tallest player in the draft Strengths: Rust the court well for a player his size, has good speed, solid rebounder,can finish with ether hand Weakness:Inconstant mid range shooting, Still fairly raw, not a great decision maker, Defense is his weakest part of the game & its clear, other bigs go straight at him & usually find success, altho he's over 7ft he doesnt use his hight & body well in the paint at all giving up deep position very easily by smaller players & gets pushed around without much resistants, not great fundamentals never bends his knees & tries to defend with his hands instead of his feet which makes him foul alot, so bad at the perimeter that coaches tell him not to step out on the pick & roll Bad out weights the good here
Possibly, but the bad thing is that I copied these strengths & weaknesses out of the scouting book/Pre-Draft booklet, so this isn't my opinion of him its the league's look at him, they also had alot more weaknesses, but its just depressing typing this many bad things a player can't do
