There's almost no realistic path to us resigning Mario, regardless of how well or poorly he plays down the stretch.

People fail to realize this no matter how many times it’s mentioned.

It was just a bad draft.  Sucks that we had a #5 overall pick and the board turned to crap as soon as our turn is up.  Same with this years draft.  Board instantly turns to crap when Orlando is on the clock.

Yeah, it's not like we could have drafted Myles Turner or Devin Booker or Bobby Portis, or Willy Cauley-Stein or Trey Lyles or Kelly Oubre or Terry Rozier or Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. All the quality starter-level talent was gone by then, sure.

I'd rather worry about health than worrying about if the players suck. Which ours do.

The Grant hill situation was terrible though.  And that seems analogous.

Durability is a very important trait in a player. When we had Dwight him not getting injured was something we could pretty much always count on(until his last season here).

Oh look, LM just dropped 32 last night. Also is quietly having a nice rookie season. 

Honestly, i'm already starting to doubt this front office ability to draft.

Me too. We didn’t even work out Isaac right?

If true it would not surprise me. I was very high on LM as shooter who could come in day one and hit shots. OTOH we picked Isaac who has all the physical tools to do something (one day) but no definable skill. Then traded down/away picks when we needed as much talent as possible. Missed on Kuzma and Bell. I think Hartenstein will be solid too.
