  2. paulmbanks says

    That’s why pencils have erasers. I love this advertisement after the comments set up. really helping with commenting. thanks Ryan! and Sarah!

  3. Andy Weise says

    Of course Utah would draft Robin Lopez! I think most teams could rate Derrick Rose #1…. Seattle would love to see Rose fall to them at two… Miami should take Rose though because Rose/Wade/Marion would be a heck of a team to watch… they would run the ball nonstop. Miami would be stuck with Chris Quinn at the point otherwise…. they’ve missed out on Bibby, Mo Williams, Charlie Bell, the list goes on.
