    Better to agree with Slippy than Darth Tutu.

    Apparently Joe doesn't. Gordon and Villanueva are ok signings...maybe they blossom here. Either Daye or Sharpe makes Joe look like a monkey genuis or we'll be in desparate need of a lottery pick or windfall trade.

    In these new stories. If the author likes Day then he is 6'11" and still may grow more. If they don't then he is 6'10" flat. Kind of funny in a way.

    LEAVE DAYE ALONE,HE'S A HUMAN.It's to early to say something about Daye,becouse a lot of players look diffrent when they are on the court.I only agree for one that Daye will be a great pick or a bust.

    Here is a thought on Sharpe.

    It seems like it would be money well spent to hire a $100K per year person to get him to practice, the bus, the plane, and wherever else on time.

    They would wake up, go over to his house, unlock his door with their own key, wake him up, drag him to the limo, and drop him off at the Palace.

    No more tardiness. And we wouldn't be throwing away his $600K/year... or whatever it is.

    I don't get this post. Is Sharpe's condition cured, active, arrested or insignificant? From your emphasis it is active. This medical problem can be dealt with and has no bearing on his talent level. It could be a positive element knowing that selective fans think this challenge to great to overcome. He is an NBA player...yes?...or do I need to be corrected on this?

    Curry mentioned that Sharpe was basically in the dog house last year because of tardiness and oversleeping, etc.

    SF backup was just about our biggest need last year and we forced Prince to be our highest played player yet again. Sharpe didn't even get any action in blowout situations.

    I just find it frustrating because the sleeping issue was the reason why he fell to us in the draft. So we were fully aware of it and then we seem to consider it a character flaw and a strike against him when he still struggles with it a year later.

    So, my point is that we can eliminate the reliance on him to overcome his condition (or worst case, his laziness), with a personal assistant. Then the organization would never have to worry about him showing up late.


    I mean, jeez, we draft 3 small forwards this year and also sign Washington from last year's draft while we have Sharpe on the team and have never even taken him for a test drive? What a waste so far.

    I'm no expert, but I don't think oversleeping and subsequent tardiness are necessarily symptoms of narcolepsy. Narcolepsy is characterized most by dropping off during the day, even after a full night's sleep. Oversleeping might just come from staying up too late the night before, which would also be cured by a PA (who you ought to be able to land for less than $100k).

    He idolizes a guy that we want to get rid of? That's not a good sign.

    Maybe Tay will show him how to palm the ball for 20 seconds of the shot clock and dribble until he can drive to the left and chuck up a jump shot, or pass to your teammate as the shot clock expires.




    :D

    moves as those are not hard to learn, but here comes the catch: everything has to happen in slow motion. That's the trick

    I like how he's gained 6 lbs already.
    Kinda reminds me of how Darko grew a couple of inches after draft night.

    I can gain six pounds by looking at a bag of cookies. What's the big deal?
