    If we end up with say the 3rd pick in the draft and he declares I think we stay local and Greg Monroe would be close to a lock. I know we definitely don't do as much Princeton style offense since Eddie was fired but Monroe is that perfect point forward. Run things through him, he'll find back cuts, he can handle, he can go one on one. Got to remember though that basically Georgetown players never declare early but with how bad they are this year maybe Monroe will. Jordan Hill is also an interesting pick if Griffin is gone as Hill has looked flat out dominant and explosive at times.
    I like Monroe a lot, I have him behind Jordan Hill as my 4th best prospect in this draft with Thabeet at 5 (like I said not as high on him as others) I actually think a lot of people sleep on Hill, I absolutely love his upside.

    Out of the group of Hill/Monroe/Thabeet I'd be content with whoever we selected. The only player in my top 5 that I would be disappointed to select would be James Harden, not because I don't like the guy (my number 2 prospect along with most everyone elses) but the selection of Harden would most likely kill any chance of Nick Young ever developing, thus making that selection a wasted pick. Now I do think Harden probably ends up as the more consistent player overall, I think we are better served keeping Young and letting him continue to develop while using our pick this year to take a big.

    • So I'm listening to a local sports radio guy tell me how this is the year the slam dunk contest is great again! This is like the 10th year in a row I've heard that, and it's still not and never will be what it was in the 80's. In the 80's players had some creative dunks. Now we've seen most of these dunks over and over and the new ones are rarely anything special. Until someone does a flip and then dunks it or jumps from the 3 points line, the dunk contest is no longer interesting.

        I'd like to see Jamison move to the 6th man role, coming in as a SF/PF reserve like he did in Dallas. That of course would be dependent on A. McGee developing faster than expected or B. Drafting Griffin who could step in and start right away. I hate the contract but AJ has a lot of intangibles that don't show up on stat sheets. I know everyone says how he is "aging" and what not but he really hasn't shown many signs of slowing down, and by bringing him off the bench we could preserve him from wear and tear and at least get part of our moneys worth from him. I strongly believe locking Jamison up was a move made to keep Gilbert happy, which as of right now is looking ridiculously stupid since Gilbert hasn't been on the court for the better part of 2 years.

          You admittedly didn't watch the slam dunk contest so how can you have an opinion on it?

              And Halsey, do you not realize the difficulty in dunking from the FT line and why not many can do it or even try to do it?

                I don't have to watch it to know it was not interesting. Nate Robinson jumped over Dwight Howard! Whoopidy Doo!.... I've seen guys jumped over in games. Watching in a a controlled setting just doesn't seem interesting.

                  I have to say, you do bring up a very valid point. Watching events take place in the world is a tad overrated. I much prefer to feel the vibe of whats going on and decide on my decisions based on that.

                        Underworld 3 had some cool special effects, cool looking werewolves, some good action, but overall was just ok.

                        See, I haven't seen it, but I can just tell based on past experience. I've seen eenough dunk contests to know they're stale, just like I basically know what to expect from Underworld 3.

                          I've seen your name, I've seen other posters on this forum. I haven't met you, but I've probably met people like you. Those people were all douches...

                            Chase Budinger says "Shut yo Mouth!" (though he may be considered a day walker, he would have to undergo freckle analysis before he can truly be called a ginger.)

                                And that has what to do with the NBA? Are you saying my chances of watching an NBA game again anytime soon are as good as the chances the Suns win an NBA championship in the next decade?
