    I like Fantasyland, Peter Pan, Pinocchio, Mr. Toad, Snow White, absolute classic rides. Snow White is legitimately creepy if you ride it by yourself when the park isn't crazy crowded and nobody else is in the car ahead of or behind you.

    This.

    Makes a lot of sense just to have everything in that one thread. If your behind and don't feel like reading throw a bunch of pages it really doesn't take that much time.

    Like I said in the other thread, Giles injury history scares me a bit even with a late first rounder.

    There are several guys that I like there though with Jordan Bell currently leading the pack for me. I'll keep pumping him up as many times as I can.

    I think we'll probably end up either trading the pick or drafting someone under the radar like we usually do. It's a new front office but I still trust our ability to evaluate talent.

    The scouting department went mostly untouched. We retained all of our scouting talent and we're actually adding more to it.

    The notable changes in that department are Rudy T and Chaz the bartender.

    Ryan West, Jesse Buss, Joey Buss, and our international scout whose name I can't remember are all still here.

    TJ Leaf. Probably goes in the teens, but who knows. He can't defend, but no one on our team can, so he'll fit right in. But he can put the ball in the bucket and he's young.

    I like Leaf too, but might be out of our range. Stretch bigs are popular these days.

    Maybe we can move up in the draft, trade jc and Houston's pick for let's say the Kings 10th pick?

    I'm looking for a sleeper.

    The Lakers have proven in the past that they can turn a pick in that range into an NBA player and thats all you can ask for right now.

    Maybe a guy expected to go higher slips because of health issues or character issues or whatever and the Lakers can grab him late.

    Well, we got Larry with the 27th pick (most of us was scratching our heads back then LOL). I have a good feeling about that 28th pick this year...

    Little known fact, you can take any random NBA talent scout, and turn them into a top bartender. They will mix a rum and coke, and use the exact same ingredients that any other bartender would use, rum and coke. :Noddingyes::Noddingyes::Noddingyes::Noddingyes::Noddingyes::Noddingyes::Noddingyes::Noddingyes::Noddingyes::Noddingyes:

    If Anigbogu slides for some reason, he'd be a great pickup. Right now I expect him to go in the teens or early twenties. He's got great athleticism and tools. I like his defensive instincts. If he's there, I might actually keep the pick.
