    I couldn't be a GM cause I wouldn't know how to work with agents, other gm's, the owner, and do all the day to day stuff, but I honestly think that there are quite a few of us that could make decent overall moves. I also think that fans don't realize that owners have way more control and make way more decisions then we realize. I am not even talking about the Vivek Ranadivé(king's owner famous for the draft video) and other way to involved owners, but even the good ones probably have way more say then we realize. For instance the new Jazz owner probably said get the Gobert and Donovan Deals done and thats why they both seem so bad.

    I had no idea who The Frenchman that resembled a blade of grass was at the time, but after seeing his measurements I figured it was a good flier that late in the draft. Mitchell I as very happy with, had no idea he’d be the player he’s become that’s for sure!


    Rippin' lips son!!
