    Nope - a pro wrestling move.

    I'm a die hard Cyclone fan, and Monte Morris fan, but if I were an NBA GM, I'm not sure I'd take Morris in the 1st round. I think early 2nd round, or he's a total steal if you get him mid to late 2nd round.

    I think there are just too many question marks on him to go in the 1st. IMO, he's a career backup PG that you can rely on to come in and run the show with ease and not make mistakes, which is a very valuable asset on any team, but not sure you use a 1st rounder on someone like that or not?

    Look at OKC for example. When Westbrook comes out, they could use someone to come in and run the show, not make mistakes, and keep them even with the other team while Westbrook gets a breather. The way it is now, when Westbrook sits, OKC becomes awful.

    Dejonte murray was their first round pick last year. As get stronger and more experienced, he will be their starting point guard for the end of Leonard's prime years.

    And he'll be very very good.

    Not that it is really a good measure but Monte is getting scanned for 2K18 today.

    Monte had 13 pts, 4 assists and 1TO Friday and played good defense..Taking care of the ball and not losing possessions is something of great value in bball. Monte will get drafted. He also shot better in drills than almost every player there and his interviews were likely at the top as well. He's a very low risk pick. He's also 21 which helps as well

    Huh? What part of that wasn't true? Multiple sources said he wasn't going to participate because of back spasms but he ended up playing and doing well. Exactly what the article stated. I guess you don't want to hear what Monte had to say about it?

    Huh? What part of the above-posted article do you not understand? Someone started a rumor of bad back spasms and it was completely false. I have a hard copy of the newspaper in my hands and it was reported on local media as a complete lie. Monte tweeted it was false.

    Which is what the article says as well. I guess I just don't get the outrage over the article.

    Edit. Never mind I don't think I took your comment the way you were meaning it. I thought you were calling the article fake news.

    No I guess you don't want to hear what Monte had to say about it. Try reading. It's easy. Here is a link to Monte's twitter. You might want to check your BS sources as well.

    That's fine. If you think someone attempting to spread a false rumor like that is o.k. that your prerogative.

    That could be but I think it backfired given Monte's performance. I'm simply stating it's pretty low life for someone to start a lie like that on one the most important days of his life. Pure scum move IMO.

    Maybe not, but you can start rumors that the guy has a back problem. And that is exactly what someone did.

    Someone was on the news a couple of times with back issues last season, but I was thinking it was a Hawkeye. Jok, maybe?

    I wasn't trying to be funny. I'm trying to remember. Anyone else remember who it was?
