  1. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Dude...just...dude... This ain't an off year for European basketball. Euroleague is the second best basketball competition in the world. Doncic is that good. Nobody at his age has ever been close to his production. I usually doesn't pay attention to the Doncic criticism, as it often comes from people who haven't watched a single euro game in his entire life, but I'm a little bit tired of reading nonsense about Luka. I'm a Real Madrid season ticket holder, so I think I've watched him enough to tell his strengths and weaknesses. He's magnificent on ball, and he can play off ball too without any problem (in fact, he shares a lot of playing time with another PG). He crashes the boards, has an amazing court vision and has an alpha mentality. His problems come on the defensive side. Although he's making progress, his lateral quickness is not good, he lacks court awareness on the close outs and he makes silly fouls sometimes. And no, this is not due to a lack of athleticism, which is above average (he's way quicker when you watch him live than when you watch him on the TV). His shot selection can be improved (and will be), as well as his three point percentage. He has a killer step-back (one of the best I have seen) and can take defenders off the dribble whenever he wants. Good interior scorer and great when it comes to provoking fouls and and getting into the line. Can take smaller players into the post, too. Best comp I can think of (I'm not a fan of comparing players at all) is Drazen Petrovic, although way bigger and without his killer shot (yet). And please, stop talking about highlights videos. If you want fancy dunks and crazy athleticism go watch the Globetrotters. Only way you can have an informed opinion on Luka is if you watch an actual game and see with your own eyes how he affects the game in every way. Period. Cheers.

    This is not about the mixtapes dude. This is about full games. Go and watch some.

    That's not gonna happen.
  4. 2018 trade deadline thread

    DEN: Juancho or Beasley + two 2nd rounders. MIA: Not sure. Winslow should be in it most def. Miami current pick situation makes a deal really hard to picture. BOS: Ojeleye + Boston 1st. PHI: Anderson/Holmes + two 2nd rounders.

    Nice. We have company in the Luka bandwagon, @fanboyslim .
  8. KBM's draft thoughts and opinions

    Yep. Outside of Luka, maybe Musa will be a good NBA prospect. And that's it. Qyntel Woods was playing in Poland. That should tell you why he was highly regarded. And why he didn't play for an EuroLeague juggernaut after playing quite poorly with Olympiakos, too. He played against actual NBA players in the summer. And he won the tournament, by the way.
  9. KBM's draft thoughts and opinions

    I can understand you guys not watching European basketball but saying a borderline role player is better than the best Euroleague player this season is quite insulting honestly.
  10. KBM's draft thoughts and opinions

    You have completely forgotten Doncic and it's really sad lol 20+10+8 against EL champions in his last game. Wish you could watch him play...
  11. Inverted Standings Watch

    Yes about the based on record stuff. And about owning our second rounder, it depends. We'll receive the most favorable pick between the Hornets one, the Heat one and our own pick. Right now we would get the #33 pick if I'm not mistaken. We'll receive the Suns second rounder if it falls between 55-60 too, but whatever. That's not gonna happen.
  12. What do you think Tyreke's value is?

    Reke should net a protected first round pick. Something like 2019, 2020 lottery protected, if not conveyed pick original owner sends his 2021 second rounder.
