  1. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Yeah, I think we all desperately want a wing creator because we have never really had one. However, this draft doesn't really have any elite wing creators.

    I think if you evaluate Bagley as a big with perimeter skills (ala Ben Simmons), you will be underwhelmed with him. If you look at him as a dynamic 5, that can: grab and go, beat his man down court, finish, spread the floor with above average handles for a 5, then he will grade much higher for you. Watching playoff games is very educational when evaluating these guys. I can imagine Bagley surrounded by 4 shooters/creators and having other NBA 5s trying to check him 1 on 1. Because he will get stronger. Now I can see why DWash has been consistently so high on him. Dude was the best player in his class over Zion/RJ Barret/Cam Reddish for the last 3-4 years, reclassified up and was still the best in his class again. That is no small feat. Plus he was productive as heck in college. Should be getting consideration at #1 along with Ayton, Doncic and Porter.

    I’m going the exact opposite direction. Alot of Bagley’s problems are technical. But i am watching a lot of games right now. I have my guys: Doncic, Bagley, Porter, Ayton, Young and JJJ. No particular order but JJJ would be outside my top 5 but is included because i don’t think Young will be an option. I don’t have a favorite or a DO NOT DRAFT in that group.

    Doncic, Ayton, Bagley, Porter and we are 5 is the worse case scenario to me because I doubt we take Young. We would like ly take JJJ.

    There isn't a single sure thing in this draft. No need to come down on other posters preferred pick especially this early in the process. The lottery will eliminate players we need to argue about just like the successful tank did. No need to even discuss the Miles Bridges or Collin Sextons anymore. We are top 5. There are about 6-8 players (Ayton, Doncic, Porter, Bagley, JJJ, Young, Bamba, Mikal Bridges) that are left in the conversation. Hopefully, after May 15th, we can be arguing about who is worthy of going #1.
  6. We will see this offseason with him coming off a "career year". If he gets more than the MLE for more than one season.

    I don’t think we ccompare favorably to any team. The Pre-Duncan Spurs or the Pre-process Sizers. This is something different. We are hampered with the pick wenowe Boston, the front office confusion and the roster in general. We can reload into a middling playoff team. Give Boston our pick in a weak draft, get the front office together and get another year off the former coaches we are paying. Start fresh in the 2019 offseason. Where we would have more info on the MAX guys we have under contract. This will be the start of the next 3YP except we will have a top 5 pick already on the roster. Hopefully, the NBA gifts us Wiseman in 2020 and we are 2/3 away from our big 3 in Memphis. While all the current big dogs Warriors/Rockets/LeBron are turning to dust, we build to face the next wave: Boston/76ers/Brow

    Another 2nd round target Josh Okogie...
  9. Tyreke has never really played for a winner. No winner was killing themselves to add him at the the deadline. No teams were killing themselves to add him last offseason. Tyreke might be a little to full of himself. WTF have you done in the league but score on bad teams?
  10. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    I don’t want to be Phoenix/Minnesota. A top 5 pick surrounded by vets is best.
  11. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Nah, one more season of competing. We owe a pick and have an untraceable max contract.
  12. Ping pong time.

    1. Phoenix - Ayton 2. Chicago - Doncic 3. Atlanta - Jaren Jackson 4. Memphis - Michael Porter

    You can never have enough ball handling guys that are 6’6" with 7 foot wing spans that shoot 40% from 3.
