  1. Bamba and Young are the only unicorns i see i this draft.

    Bamba is Nerlens Noel. Or hasheem thabeet.

    It's not athletic ability they have it's skill. Shiftiness, handle, using their body to keep the defender off them. Skill not athletic ability

    Compare Bamba's stats to Thabeet's stats Compare what people say about Bamba to what they said about thabeet It's freaking uncanny the similarities Defensive guys who might develop an offensive game later do not have a great pan out ratio. They end up as Nerlens Noel and Willie Cauley-Stein. Or thabeet I want no part of Bamba.

    And Jon Leuer was also amazing based on his per 36 metrics in detroit (or wherever the hell we got him from). Be very, very cautious about extrapolating a small sample size and then drawing conclusions from that.

    People don't trust Euros. For some reason, they can't imagine that a 19 year old playing against professional men in the 2nd best league in the world (and about 10 times better than college) is worth squat if he can't do a 360 windmill dunk. Have fun drafting harold miner. I don't know why, the entire NBA is transitioning to be very focused on skills. Harden is not some superior athlete. Steph is not some superior athlete. Durant is long but he is not a physical specimen. I would much rather have a guy who can pass, create his shot, and hit 3s (which I think Doncic will be able do, % is a little worrisome), and function within an offense. Doncic isn't going to turn into Lebron or Giannis but neither will any of those other guys either. Ayton is really, really good. I don't like JJJ. Don't like Sexton. Porter frightens me, he looked like garbage in his 2 games back. You want to draft him based on high school ranking? Could be Xavier Henry 2.0

    If you cant get anything for reke, then just suit him up and play him. Don't buy him out or then the teams that played hardball get exactly what they want. Screw them. You want a piece you've got to pay to get it

    A) STFU Marc. We suck this year. It doesn't matter if we go 30-52 or 25-57 except for drafting purposes. You can take a few more losses. Nothing wrong with using the media. Lebron does it all the time. Danny Ainge does it all the time (Danny Ainge always loved PLAYER X . . ., floating BS rumors about Anthony Davis, etc) Pulling Evans is smart. It helps us lose games. It doesn't diminish an asset we want to trade.

    Right. Because the more they saw of him the more they realized he just isn't that good

    Re: Mudiay, his minutes and starts have gone down every year. That's a horrific sign.
  10. 2018 trade deadline thread

    Mudiay is basically Mclemore guys. Lots of hype, not living up to it, can't make an impact on non-playoff team. No thank you. Keep holding out. That offer will still be there in a week. Celtics have like 5 upcoming first round picks. Their roster is chock full already. They have to move them anyway.
  11. That cuts both ways. Love gets open 3s and easy looks because Lebron is drawing all the other teams attention. Teams would be swarming him here.
  12. 2018 trade deadline thread

    yeah, it can't be proven. It's just my opinion.
  13. 2018 trade deadline thread

    Deals like this are how you become the Kings or Suns. Cultures of winning and losing are real things. You can't just give everything away to suck. You could do it 5 years ago but now everybody who's not making the playoffs is tanking. Even teams in 9th or 10th in the conference consider tanking. Plus, with lottery reform upcoming you'd rather be the 5th worst team not the worst

    Brooks was an ultra efficient do everything college senior. His advanced metrics were good. Pac-10 player of the year but a senior. It seems like somebody an analytics guy would say is undervalued. Wallace, IMO, drifts towards highly ranked high schoolers that underperformed with our picks (which would be Davis and Rabb, in previous years Xavier Henry and Tony Wroten, Wade Baldwin also I guess). Wallace likes younger players
  15. 2018 trade deadline thread

    I have to believe somebody else wanted him to pick Brooks. Hollinger if I had to guess. Rabb is his pick. Selden we just kicked the tires on several G leaguers and he was ok. Davis is probably his pick
