i'm gaining incremental faith in scott perry and i'm all in on fizdale, as he's the most inspiring hire we've had since.. JVG? and that's more nostalgic hindsight.

i'm worried in this draft, the knicks will look for an up-tempo guard, like fizdale had in conley, when there isn't great value for one in their range. like, just develop ron baker, y'know?

I love you for this.

I'm excited because there are like 10 players I'll be happy with the Bulls taking. I really want Porter to fall, but doubt he does. I would be happy with Bamba as he could be a good fit with Lauri. If they take either Bridges I'll be content.

I'm really hoping no Trae and am legit worried that with so many good options GarPax will reach on someone. Please just take one of the safe picks GarPax, pleeeease.

People are a bit too hard on Trae. He was going harder than anybody else in college this year and just exhausted himself a bit much down the stretch/slowed down. I think he can still be a damn good player all the same.

Though Doncic should go 1, it apparently is a lock that Ayton does according to sources.

Oh fuck Gambo, but he is usually right

Though he has also been known to just be Sarver's mouthpiece so maybe they are putting out feelings for fan reaction

my sources say sarver is a big UA booster and has a relationship with ayton already.

people are understandably reading a lot into the koko hire because of the nationality connection.

mcdonough could play some ainge-esque games here, but i see him fucking it up. because the word 'suns' is just absurd and anti-intellectual

The Phoenix Mercurys agree

My friend once asked how the Magics were doing, we never let him live it down

or the maybe we just believe that our solar system is actually binary with a brown dwarf orbiting somewhere outside the Oort cloud

Young is definitely more talented than the guys he's being compared to. Being under 6'1, skinny as hell, with a wingspan of 6'3 is a big issue though.

yeah the modern nba is all about versatility and switching, and unless you offer an exceptional ability like cp3- being undersized is an automatic liability

He can theoretically bulk up a bit. He'll make it work.

Any chance Trae Young falls to 9?

No right? Of course not.

I don't understand the Doncic hype at all. He's just not athletic enough to make it in the NBA.

At best he'll be a good offensive player and terrible defender. The NBA is all about athleticism, how on earth is he going to keep up with the speed in the NBA? And every time he went against NBA caliber players overseas, he struggled.

How is that the top pick in the draft? It makes no sense to me.

There are plenty of very good NBA players who are just average athletes. Like Steph.

Steph isn't an average athlete. He's incredibly strong for his size, he can deadlift 400 lbs. And he has more speed than Doncic by a good margin.

And even then, he struggles on the defensive side of the ball. Doncic isn't close to the athlete Steph is, how is he gonna make it work in the NBA? I just don't see it.

He's slow, he has a long release, he's clunky on the court with his footwork, I don't even think he'll get his shot off in the NBA. People are trying so hard to find the next Steph Curry but Doncic isn't it.

He's just too slow to make it in the NBA

He did a good job defending Westbrook in that exhibition game. I think you are certainly underestimating him as an athlete

Manu is still the best comparison I have with a slower jump shot obviously

If you've never watched Doncic play and read sham's take on him, you'd like he runs a 5 second forty with a 25 inch vertical.
