  1. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Worst game I've watched from Real in the Pablo Laso era by far. Madrid is suffering a lot right now with Campazzo out. And I don't think he'll play in any game of this series... And Luka...all the team played bad (maybe Ayon didn't) so I'm not worried. Let's see if Real can figure something out in game two.
  2. Head Coach Thread

    I've watched the exit interviews and Gasol, Conley and Parsons seemed to be on the JB train. So there's that.
  3. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    The fact that you think you know more than NBA pro scouts by only watching YT highlights videos is funny. And sad. Both, I guess. Have you ever watch a full game? Luka will be playing ACB post-season at the time of the workouts. As I said a few days ago, that should tell you something about his competitive nature, but whatever. It would be nice to mantain a serious discussion about this topic, but your bias against Doncic is pretty clear. You just compared him with Dillon freaking Brooks. And I love Dillon. But come on. His style of play is totally different, and if you would have watch a single game of Doncic you would know this. And, for the record, yes, Luka has flaws in his game.
  4. The 2018 Free Agents

    So, assuming we resign Tyreke, next year we have: Conley/Harrison Evans/Selden/MarShon/McLemore Dillon/Parsons Green/Martin/Rabb Marc/Deyonta Plus lottery pick and second rounder. 15 guys total with them. I am picking Luka in the draft if he's there to play Point Forward and give Mike off-ball freedom. Get a big in the second round. I would get rid of Deyonta. After that, dunno what more can be done to improve the roster.

    One thing you guys seem to forget is that Doncic won the Eurobasket this past summer against NBA caliber talent (e.g. Porzingis, Gasol brothers, etc)
  6. Draft 2018

    Me da miedo tener el número dos porque soy un firme creyente de que la lotería del draft es un tongazo bueno. Partiendo de esa base (que igual la lotería se hace bien y todo, lo dudo), los Suns cogerán el número uno si o sí porque Ayton es de Arizona. Nos veo con el número tres (seguro que caemos). Yo quiero a Doncic ante todo. Es el que más polivalencia da y posiblemente el mejor jugador a día de hoy de todos los de arriba. Puede jugar de tres en la NBA. Conley-Brooks-Doncic-Green-Marc con Evans de sexto hombre es a lo mejor que podemos aspirar la próxima temporada en mi opinión. Luka puede jugar tanto sin balón como con balón. Si Bickerstaff (creo que continuará) sigue la tendencia de Fizz y quiere que Conley sea la referencia ofensiva, Conley puede ceder responsabilidad creativa a Doncic y jugar tanto con balón como sin balón. Lo único que me preocupa es la defensa...pero viendo el salto físico que ha pegado de un año a esta parte creo que puede mejorar en esa faceta. A veces se nos olvida que es un crío de 19 años recién cumplidos...
  7. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    For all the "We have to see Doncic in the workouts" guys, he'll probably won't show up as he will be playing the Spanish league playoffs. I have to check the schedule but I think the tourney begins late May.
  8. The 2018 Free Agents

    Gerald Henderson has been injured all season, so I assume we will offer him a minimum contract or something. All jokes aside, I could see Wallace pursuing that kind of a deal in free agency. That's what he does best.
  9. 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.
  11. 2018 trade deadline thread

    That's not gonna happen.
  12. 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.

    No personality? Doncic? lol https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1y_HhwNjU6s
  14. Memphis signs Myke Henry from G-League

    January 15th is the deadline to sign a player to a two-way contract.
  15. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Nice. We have company in the Luka bandwagon, @fanboyslim .
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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...
  19. 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.
  20. 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.

    Like it a lot.
