    He kept mentioning he was busy at a presser so I always assumed he worked in media.
    Boom. BC.

    that part about the spread of misinformation strikes me as hella ironic

    I never got the impression that ink was in the know. He came off as a fan to me.

    Nah he's probably just a fan and just one of the dozens pretending to be raptors insiders.

    I recall him saying that he stopped posting because he doesn't like the direction of the team.

    Nah ink's diction is completely different. The BC burners weren't as passive aggressive or as patronizing as ink. Eric Jr was a lot more direct and used a lot of colourful language reminiscent of an 80s used car salesman.

    Ink is also a Canucks fan and was active in the NHL forum. He's definitely not BC Jamie lol.

    With that said, if the real-gm accounts are true, there is a good chance BC read what fans had to say on here.

    I wouldn't mind Parsons + 4. Seems like Memphis is intent on being a treadmill team. We have the pieces to make it happen.

    Yeah, from conversations I had with him it sounded like he was a sports media producer. If I remember correctly I think he said he used to work on the broadcast with the Grizzlies when they were in Vancouver. He wasn’t BC lol

    That wouldn't be a bad place to start....If they would take Ibaka and Poeltl for Parsons + the #4 pick would be ideal (obviously)......Parsons makes 24M next year and Ibaka make just under 22 so the salaries work out pretty well. As much as I like Poeltl's athleticism as a 7 footer, I like Bebe's shot blocking, passing and ability to shoot the 3 even more. I think JV earned the right to play 30+ mpg next year, and clearing some o the competition at the 5 should make it easier for Nurse to make that happen. Parsons is a knock down 3pt shooter when he is healthy and the #4 pick. There are a lot more than 3 good players in this draft. Michael Porter could fall to 4, which could be franchise changing....Jaren Jackson is the youngest player in the draft, and already very gifted at both ends of the floor with incredible length. Mo Bamba could be the next Rudy Gobert with his size and athleticism.
