    Who's the best fit at power forward? - Jason Jones

    That's why I said that this is an important year for him. Big men typically have their break out year in their 3rd or 4th year in the NBA if its going to happen at all. Since Willie came to the game late (didn't really start playing basketball until his junior year of high school) it's more...

    Who's the best fit at power forward? - Jason Jones

    I doubt that Willie is going anywhere. I agree that Giles best position is likely PF. I can see him playing some center in the right match up. For instance if the Warriors put Green at center, as they often do, then there's no reason Giles couldn't match up against him. I know some of you...

    Jaren Jackson Jr

    Hey, I can loan you my rose colored glasses! :oops: I certainly wouldn't go so far as to predict stardom, but I think there are around 6 players that could potentially become stars. Maybe 7, and I include Jackson in that group. I doubt all will, but there's a lot of talent in this class. In...

    Jaren Jackson Jr

    I think you made an unintentional point in his favor when you mentioned his good 3pt %, and then qualified it by saying he was left open. Which means, you can't leave him open, which means you have to guard him, which means he can pull the other teams big man away from the basket, which means he...

    Who do you want with our #36 pick?

    I think Allen helped himself at the combine by showing that he was more athletic than people thought. He's good, but erratic shooter. I suspect he'll go somewhere between 27 and 35. Personally, I lean more toward the 35, but he does come with a good pedigree, and is known for toughness. Some...

    Who do you want with our #36 pick?

    Trust me on this one, Keita Bates-Diop will go in the middle of the first round somewhere. The only reason he's not going higher is because of his age.

    If you watched him play, then you would know that he played on the perimeter, where he wasn't often allowed to use his post skills, or for that matter rebound as well as he would have had he been playing nearer the basket. Why was he out there? Because Ward couldn't play anywhere but in the...

    I don't think enough has been stated about Jaren Jackson for some reason. As I stated in another thread, it was hard to get a read on him at times, especially if you only caught a couple of games. It seemed he was in constant foul trouble, some of them tickey tackey, and spent a great part of...

    Trade WCS for Wiggins if we get Ayton?

    With me, it's not about who we trade, but who were trading for. I don't like Wiggins, and I certainly don't like the contract he comes with. I had reservations about him at Kansas, and today several years later, I still have the same reservations. Does everyone realize that he's owed and average...

    Who do you want with our #36 pick?

    I guess there are several ways of looking at who you might take in the 2nd round. Some will say what you said. Go for a position of need and don't duplicate if possible. Others, will say go for the most upside you can find, and some will say take the best player available right now regardless of...

    Who do you want with our #36 pick?

    I'd certainly have him on my list. I think it's possible that he'll go at the bottom of the first round, but hey, he has upside and size, so I hope the Kings bring him in for a workout. I agree on his match up with Ayton. I think Wilkes needs to go back to UCLA. He could go undrafted if he stays...

    Michael Porter Jr

    Sometimes that true, but not always. There are cases where the player will be invited along with another player to scrimmage against. I realize that it happens less and less today than it used to, but it isn't written in stone that your going up against a chair.

    Michael Porter Jr

    Are you serious? In that first video he was being guarded by shorter, quicker players, so he did what he should have done, shot the ball over them. Why don't you show me some video of him being guarded by a player his own size? Then you point out how Dennis Smith took his man off the dribble...

    Marvin Bagley III

    I'm not sure why you feel that way. Willie is a proven NBA player, who may be on the verge of a break out year (maybe). Whomever we pick, will have some adjusting to do. None of them are going to waltz in and dominate at the center position. Lets say we pick Ayton. Why not move Willie to the PF...

    Marvin Bagley III

    I find it interesting that no one mentions Jaren Jackson in the equation. I realize he was hard to get a read on because of how he was used, and the foul trouble that plagued him, but I think he's as talented as any of the other top three or four players. If, after analysis, you can't find a...

    Who do you want with our #36 pick?

    Let me start by saying that Holiday and Keita Bates-Diop (one of my favorites) will both go in the first round. However I do have a list of players that I like that are borderline bottom of the 1st/top of the 2nd round players. And they are: Mo Wagner, 6'11" C/PF Donte DiVincenzo, 6'5" Combo...

    KAT and Wiggins

    I do not, let me repeat, I do not want Wiggins on this team. KAT I'll take in a heartbeat, but Minny would be stupid to trade him. If I have KAT, and he doesn't get along with the coach, than I get rid of the coach. You have an all star player in Towns, and they don't grow on tree's. How about...

    Here is What "Consensus" Gets You

    As I've said before, the hardest thing to judge is whats between a players ears. He can have all the tools in the tool box, and never live up to expectations. Or he can seemingly make a silk purse out of a sows ear with hard work. You never know what a player is going to do once he has that 5 or...

    Pre-draft workouts - schedules, clips, comments, etc.

    Bluiett is a pretty good player. He's a senior who averaged around 19 ppg and shot over 40% from the three. He's a good rebounder for a guard as well, averaging over 5 boards a game. He's definitely a 2nd round pick. Jevon Carter is one of my favorite players in the draft. If you love defense...
