    Markkanen-Porter Jr- Cousins trio? That probably runs with the best in the East if Porter is legit.
    Porter might suck hard. He couldn't crack that Mizzou lineup when he was cleared to play and they weren't great.

      True, I'm hoping he's a guy you can steal at 6 because he was coming back from a serious injury that otherwise would be a top 3 lock, but who knows?

      Really I'd like to get into the top 3 and get Ayton, Doncic or JJJ. Of course getting Ayton or JJJ means no reason to sign Cousins then. And signing him along with getting a hit on your first round pick is the scenario that presents the biggest tidal wave of talent for Chicago. But you're not gonna draft a center then sign Cousins, so you'd be relegated to sifting through lower level guys in free agency if you draft a center. Unfortunately, center seems to be the likely pick. The guys worthy of top 6-7 picks are either Doncic, Porter (maybe), or centers (Ayton, JJJ, Bamba, Bagley, Carter). Maybe Trae Young but he's iffy.

          I have no earthly idea what to think of Porter, he looked pretty bad after coming back but I don't think he was near 100%. You're basically drafting him off what he looked like coming out of HS 12 months ago, in alot of ways it seems like it'd be a bit of a blind gamble.

          I wouldn't hate it at 6 but I just have no clue what to expect out of him. I wouldn't be surprised by just about any outcome with him, he could be an All Star but I also wouldn't be surprised if guys like Bridges and Carter ended up better players and in 2 years everybody is wondering why the heck they went with Porter.

            I'm convinced Brad Stevens could win a playoff series with me at PG.

                  No kidding. I only watched this game in bits and pieces because of all the other non-competitive games. I happened to check the score and saw that Houston had stormed back late in the 4th Qtr so I was able to watch the last 4 minutes of the game.

                  That was a gutsy win by the Rockets. They withstood two huge Warriors runs that would typically make teams fold their tents.....but they hung tough last night.

                      Im guessing Paul misses game 6 so will probably be a game 7. Hopefully he can make it back for that one.

                        I’m hoping he guts it out knowing they need him and he tweaks it in a win, causing him to miss the entire series against the Celtics.

                        • Celtics vs Rockets? Yes, please.

                          I was actually going to skip this year's NBA Finals because I didn't want to sit through another Warriors-Cavs matchup. Now there's a very good chance that neither team will be making the Finals.

                            The first Rockets/Celtics finals was when where I first started watching the NBA. Hakeem has always been my favorite player and I also liked the Celtics as well. That was more of a teenage rebellion as my dad and brother were Laker fans. If they both make it I will have a nice finals to watch for sure. Will want Houston to win of course.

                              If he isn't 100% they aren't beating the Warriors.

                              They barely scraped by in these last 2 games with him playing great and the Warriors being up and down, there's no way they're pulling out a win if he's 80% or whatever.

                                Well now he's officially scrapped for Game 6 so the result is a foregone conclusion.
