LOL. Whew, that guy would have legitimately murdered me. No doubt.


Woahhhhhhh! Forgot all about that. How many years ago did that happen?


Just went thru my messages in inbox. Full of cool stuff. Was 7 years ago. This was my favorite from him. "Exactly, LOL...what punks always say or do... but hey here's my number...704.910.4247 feel free to call me im serious about that trip to Charlotte, 'dead serious...would love to show you how serious!!"

In the next one he said he'd buy my mothers black dress to my funeral. All over me defending MKG over Otto Potter. Lol

I still haven't emotionally recovered from that

He posted that he had enough bullets for you and your family!! He went sideways, fast.

Anyway, let’s get this back to Vernon (my fault, I derailed).



You’ve watched him a lot at Duke: How’s his screen setting?

Screens themselves are solid for the most part (hes a strong man), but he has a lot to work on that department. This is an article I read a whole back that I tracked down that basically sums it up entirely. Hes still very much a project, but I think hes going to be a very good player for us.

I like that we signed him up for 4. I think he will be a bargain for the last couple years of that and we need the cost control measures in place.

The video itself is pretty meh, but just read this thumbnail. LMAO, the LaMelo effect is Lin-esque.

Is there a single second rounder playing meaningful minutes this season? Not sure why everyone is panicking on Vernon at this point.

How often do 19 year old second rounders do anything their first year in the league? I would be willing to bet the front office is expecting nothing from his this season. The plan with him is long-term development.

He should be in Greensboro working on his game but that’s not currently an option. Hopefully he gets some more PT here sometime.
