What about trading Ben for LAs pick.

LA knows their pick is much more valuable than Gordon

Tyler Ennis is only going to get more love from here, I love Kemba but if we keep our pick and did a 6ers move to open up PT for MCW then I would not be opposed to that, obviously I would not give Kemba away so it would depend on his market.

So I've been watching Pj Hairston scouting video. I'd be extremely happy if we could pick him up at the bottom of the first. Kind of reminds me of Paul Pierce. Wish we could get Parker and pair them up on the wings. Scoring wouldn't be a problem anymore.

What would it take to get one of the top two picks?

I don't think the top 2 picks will be traded, the teams that get them were losing on purpose to get one of those picks and they will want to keep them after a season of sucking

Well here is to hoping we tank and get the best odds possible. Parker is a game changer. Melo/Mashburn type player.

I am very skeptical of tearing it up in the D-League, Bazz went down and did the same thing and he came back and has done nothing special.

Yea true. Even watching him at UNC though he killed it. Great shooter and uses the pick and roll really well. That's what the NBA is all about. Only question marks in his game to me is will he be able to defend the 2 in the nba and his conditioning.

It's very possible right now that both wont come out. That's why I have changed my mind about tanking. There's no use to tank and hope that they come out. If both or either just one dont come out, the teams that are tanking will have to settle on a lesser prospect.

Embidd have said that money is not a concern right now for this family. And, Parker may want to play along his close friend Okafor next year.

Let's just go with the flow. Hopefully we can bring in Turner or Monroe and make the playoffs. There's still a lot of very good prospects that we can still get with Detroit's pick.

Parker will most definitely come out and is be surprised if both don't unless their stock falls. Not much more to prove if you're being projected 1-2.

    • elton simpson was monitored over a 9 year period (fbi claims there were breaks but at the least there were still years of monitoring) and at least $132,000 in cash was spent on one informant alone. here's the fbi's version in the immediate aftermath of the shooting:   Three hours before gunmen attacked an anti-Prophet Muhammad event in Garland, Texas on Sunday, the FBI sent a bulletin to local police with a photo of one of the shooters, Elton Simpson, noting that he was "interested in the event," FBI director James Comey said. At the time, the FBI had no reason to believe that Simpson intended to attack the event, Comey told reporters Thursday. Nor did the agency know that Simpson was already on his way there. Comey also said that he does not believe that the police officer who shot Simpson and the second gunman, Soofi Nadir, was aware of the bulletin. He went on to say that while the investigation of the Phoenix gunmen is far from complete, Comey believes the FBI acted appropriately. ..... Two weeks before the Garland event, which invited artists to draw illustrations of Muhammad, the FBI and Homeland Security warned law enforcement agencies across the country that it was at risk of being targeted by Islamic extremists. The advisory noted that supporters of ISIS and other terror groups had posted links to the contest on Twitter. Simpson was reading those posts, and communicated with an American in Somalia who'd called for attacking the event, investigators have said. The FBI then developed information that Simpson might be interested in traveling to Garland, Comey said. The Sunday bulletin followed. ..... The FBI now has hundreds of investigations of potential home grown extremists under way, with cases open in every state. "I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there," Comey said. Finding them, however, is a "very hard task," he said. Investigators can follow messages that are posted on public twitter accounts. But ISIS recruiters are steering people off Twitter into encrypted forums, which the government cannot see, Comey said. "Its the old going-dark problem, in living color," said Comey. He added: "We have hundreds working on it around the clock. But in almost every case of violence, someone saw something. A friend, a family member. Its more important than ever for people to speak up."     ^^^just a reminder for the bolded parts that a federal agent was in the car directly behind them as they opened their doors and began their short lived attack
    • Looks like it has potential. BvS was terrible. I will say the extended version was a better film but still not good. Suicide Squad was one of the worst films I've seen in a while.  That said of course I will waste my money and go see this. I hope they bring back Batman's more cunning qualities in future films. I got the sense that in BvS he was a what you see is what you get type of guy. You don't get the feeling that he has something up his sleeve at all times. Which was something Nolan/Bale had, almost Bond-esque.
    • Saw it the other night and found it surprisingly decent. The acting was pretty damn good for a power rangers movie. Obvious plot holes are obvious and the plot advances before it's ready at times but it's not a bad movie. I thought the suits were cool but the zords looked terrible and the megazord was hideous. Would have been better off copying the original one tit for tat.
