Would you pass him over if you had him #1 on your board because of his father? Last Thursday Ainge was on T&R and said he has never passed over a player because of his family. Seems like a good way to end up with Jahliil Okafor instead of Kristaps Porzingis. It's not a perfect analogy, but...
I think you argued last year that the Patriots should extend JG and I thought it was nuts at the time. There are a lot of signals from the Patriots that you might be right on this. My only question is, how do you see this working in 2018? Do you think it's realistic that JG signs an extension...

Don't get me wrong, I love Malcom and don't want to see him go. But Cooks at his contract probably has more value than Malcom at his.
His father has been brought up more than once in this thread. It's hard to imagine any scenario where you think he's the most talented guy on the board and you pass over him because of his father. Is anyone making the case to pass over him regardless of talent?
Top 15 talents, that are outside the top 5, don't win championships as the best player on the team. And it's not clear we could have gotten one without giving up picks and a combination of guys in our current starting lineup.
What path are you advocating? There's no clear strategic path that leads to NBA championships. The path is to luck into an all time great. How many championships have been won over the last 30 years without a player that is top 25 all time? And in those cases most of them at least had a top...
But no one is saying they could have made a reasonable trade for an established star. It sounds like you wanted them to make a trade that wasn't available. Which star do you think they should have traded for and what do you think they could have gotten that player for?
Guest, I have a big favor to ask you. We've been working very hard to establish ourselves on social media. If you like/follow our pages it would be a HUGE help to us.
