    2019 NBA DRAFT

    mines about the same with culver in the mix . i hope we look at a couple C's , this group of bigs seems rather raw imo . compared to last year i think Mo Bamba / Carter would be the 1st C taken this year .

    found this kind of interesting . http://www.tankathon.com/power_rankings http://www.82games.com/barzilai1.htm if we wanna talk about dumping salary / moving down etc , not a bad place to start i guess . you can read the the second link and see that its pretty flawed when really trying to look at moving down in drafts without accounting with whos in it . it also uses PER which is pretty awful all around . nets got a top 12 protected 1st and 2 for taking on 22M in a salary dump for Faried & Arthur .

    2019 NBA DRAFT

    he's got a pretty funky shot , drive to the rim and he's pretty frail , gambles and loses focus a bit on D. he's going to need to Bulk up to finish in the NBA , play a bit out of control , can make great passes and has nice vision but i'm not sure he can run the point at the next level just yet .

    2019 NBA DRAFT

    i'm not so high on JA , he's not far ahead of Garland imo , Hagans i think can be a really good pick later on , he's a bit like Javon Carter , top notch man defender . Reddish i wanna see him in the tourney , he's looked pretty passive for awhile which i kind of hate , tons of skills , ending the season and tourney going all out and playing hard would make him #2 imo . Bol Bol is a complete reach to me , he's high risk and late lotto right now imo , maybe that can change in workouts . i think his injury really going to hurt his stock , we can trade for a dude that can hit step back 3's or whatever to get himself open or we gotta get some dudes that can create and break down the D a bit or a guy that is darn near Korver level elite at using screens and getting open . 3&D guys are great but if they are just spot up shooters i don't think they are going to help us a ton without improving those things 1st . for the grizz as a need Barret,Culver types i like more than guys like hunter who is far from a bad player . Ja can work for us but i think he's a big risk even a couple bigs like Naz Reid and Porter , Bruno Fit the bill a little bit i really like Norwell , Lindell Wigginton . i do think its best to j go after the BPA instead of hoping a 1st year guy can come in and fill needs right of the bat thats pretty rare imo .. lucky for us we have lot's of needs ūüėā

    he takes more 3's than turner which is great 3's not really part of turners games in college . if he comes out bigger i think he can have a batum type role . Turner with a 3 ball would be highly sought after imo .

    remind of a bit of evan turner . gonna be interesting to see how Culver measures out , he looks bigger than what i see him listed as on most sites .

    Ochai Agbaji is a beast probably lotto before it's all said and done .

    2019 NBA DRAFT

    anyone watch Naz Reid ? he's got some tools to work with . pretty decent scorer inside and out , seems to be able to pass the ball . not very fast but shows some decent foot work and ball handling . seem really crafty to me . could be a nice legit C one day .

    Grizzlies keeping Mike Conley

    yup , anything can happen , both options are risky . i think we just waited a bit long to kick this thing off is all . i still hope we can rebuild like Den instead of phi though . Den did great and had 30 win seasons improving every year , i'd much rather see something like that over tanking with 10 wins year in and year out .
  13. he's also putting up 7.6 assist , and 3.3 boards . he's had one bad month when his shot wasn't falling . him and JJJ both had a slow month and both have bounced back showing why both teams should be pretty excited with what they have .
  14. yup. that's why i pointed out he left with LH .......we had our best years while he was here it's mostly breezed over while his time at PHI and half a year GSW are getting praised . his work here with the CORE 4 was pretty awesome .

    maybe i missed it but how was Zions monster block on Hunter never posted ?
  16. oddly enough he's getting praised for his development skills for his PHI days and now with the hawks , he left when LH got fired . maybe why we saw those PHI deals ? it's not like we gave him much to develop here , lot's of late picks and injuries mixed in didn't help either . mixed bag with rooks , the older guys came along nicely though .

    talking trades on team forums ! oh no!

    Grizzlies keeping Mike Conley

    we could make a big push in the third year either way . both are risky . what if Conley Sucks / we get lowballed / or somehow it gets leaked that he wants out , we clean his locker before anything gets done ? what if we make win now moves next year to convey the pick again and we look like we do now ? Mainly i dont trust this FO , maybe its badluck but nothing they do has really panned out like most hoped for or they drop the ball like tyreke , fumble around like the brooks deal , or make a trade with Gasol that a month ago everyone would have laughed at and said it was a lowball offer . i'd have rather gotten everything out of the way and brought in someone new with Picks to either draft or dump scrubs or whatever they wanna do . maybe they keep kicking the can further along . I would have rather let the guys who Drafted Rabb,Brooks,JJJ,Carter get an few options than hoping who ever thought Holiday was a win now piece , Tample was a win now piece keep making moves thats all . i risk that whoever has found talent in drafts lately is doing a better job than whoever is making trades . i would rather whoever is drafting had 3 2nds instead of Temple And Holiday . 5 2nds if you wanna toss in whoever is making these moves whiffing on tyreke trade . someone in our FO is winning , someone has stumbled and bumbled along every step of the way . i know who i would rather risk our future with who ya got ?

    thats a risk too .

    2019 NBA DRAFT

    we could have a pick,JV ,Bradley for starters . maybe its you that can't look far ahead ?
  21. OUR FO has been awful for years and everyone knows it . every trade we make is pretty much laughed at and leaves everyone wondering WTF we are doing . the hawks have a clear direction and here we are with a mostly awful team trying to win now to MAYBE convey . BOS may even get the CLips 1st this year do to another dumb short sighted move . i just don't see many teams delay rebuilds and consider draft picks and young guys useless have much success .at some point all these teams have traded for bums to build assets or traded vets like gasol for more than a 2nd rounder . maybe we flip something we got for youth/assets but nothing we have ever done points to that direction , even if we do why would i expect these clowns to save them up and make any type of meaningful move .
  22. the hawks also suck on purpose and have hit on picks lately, they have a 1st year coach . Traebeen tearing it up after a rocky start in no way shape or form has JJJ shown he's gonna be a better player imo . , Prince looks solid , Collins looks great , Spellman , Huerer,Bremby all look decent enough to be happy with . they have a shot at zion and have the dal pick this year not to shabby . if i'm the hawks i'm 100% going after Zion though , Trae + Zion would be pretty amazing to watch if they can both live up to the hype.

    just read that AD would play in bos . Seeing the Pels bring in Ferry i have a feeling he's gonna clear the books and want picks to build his own thing up . maybe we could just go after Jrue

  25. i love barkley , i got to watch him golf at stonebridge many years ago . dude was cussing up a storm in front of kids not the greatest thing but it was funny as hell to my young *** and i've loved him ever since . he stopped cussing after a few other parents complained , i doubt they have ever golfed cause i've never seen anyone not CUSS lol .
