  • Doncic is not athletic enough, IMO. I would not put my franchise in the hands of a Euro if I was a GM who wanted to keep my job. The list of Euros who have panned out at a high level is very short.

    Way to get out on a limb with that hot take. Please to be posting the list of American white boys drafted in the first round who panned out at a high level.....same thing.





    That's not meant as a hot take, dipshit. If you're going to pick someone #3 overall they better be a franchise guy. I don't think Doncic will be that.

    Larry Bird wasn’t athletic or so they said ...

    I’m pretty sure Cuban disagrees with you on the whole Euro thing ... it’s not like he’s got any past experience to use as a barometer
    Bird played at a position that demanded less athleticism and during a completely different era. I wouldn't stake my job on Doncic.
    I’m all about bashing the old guys and that teams today would smoke everyone from back then but you gotta get the fuck outta here with even hinting at Bird not being good in today’s NBA. He would tear shit up.
    Bird was essentially a stretch-4 and one of the best shooters in the history of basketball. That's much different than Doncic who'll have to go up against the most athletic guys on the court. Bird would be good today.

    You guys are fucking stupid. Doncic is un-fucking-real. He's the best European prospect to enter the NBA ever. He's the best player in Europe alreay and he's like 18. Fuck off.

    I bet there’s more number three picks who aren’t franchise guys than number three picks who are. Who was picked behind Doncic that you think has a better shit of being a franchise guy than him? Porter is the only one I see, and he has a much higher shot of being worthless. Doncic is at worst the fourth most likely franchise guy in the draft and he also has the highest floor. He’s not going to suck.

    Ayton is a beast. Doncic is going to be really good. A lot of other guys with high potential like Bagley and Bamba. I like Trey Young a lot. Hopefully there is a big trade.

    I don't understand young or why anyone likes him. He literally could be one of the worst lottery picks of my lifetime. The fact he was essentially picked 3rd overall is fucking insanity. He's 6'1" and string bean. Nobody in the nba is going to let him do the shit he did(poorly) in college. He was a turn over machine in college and now has to go against superior talent. Nothing about his body or game makes sense for the nba. At best, he's going to have to mold himself into a pass first PG b/c he does have good vision, but his more than generous ego is not going to allow that. He will be such a defensive liability at all times that I just can't imagine how/why anyone would draft this guy for anything more than a bench guy.

    I think he will be a good PG. Like you said, he does have good vision. I would have taken Doncic if I ran the Hawks, but I think Young will be an All Star at some point.

    Trae Young is a good passer, averaged 8 assists and assist numbers translate really well to the NBA. If his shooting is real you’re going to have a top 10 offense with him.

    His ceiling isn’t Steph Curry, it’s a poor mans Steph Curry. But that’s still really good.

    Rubio wasn't the best player on the best team in Europe. He was a back up who saw like 19 mins a game and averaged 4 ppg.

    Doncic is 6"8 and is a PG. He's more like Petrovic than Kukoc lol. Kukoc was a 4/5. honestly he's a unicorn that you can't really compare him to anyone else. Bagley, Ayton, and Doncic will all be superstars. Shitpoast.

    To be fair most of the Rubio hype came from Chris Mannix

    You were like minus 12 when Kukoc played Euro Ball. He was hyped as the next Magic.

    Doncic is a nice player. He’s not the white Lebron.

    This. If youre throwing out Rubio you havent seen Dončič play a second. Rubio had upside because he was really young and showed flashes. Dončič has upside becuase he's young and balls the fuck out.

    His ceiling isn’t Steph Curry, it’s a poor mans Steph Curry. But that’s still really good.

    This is starting to go the Tony Wroten argument route, but i'll bite. Young has outstanding vision, but he also is fucking lazy and tries to "look good" while passing vs just handle the ball. He literally averaged almost 6 TO's per game. That is unreal for college. He's young so he certainly can grow into his role going forward, but he's going to have to take care of the ball a whole lot better if he's going to be close to all-star. And He needs to be able to be serviceable on defense which i just don't see

    I still don't get the argument of how he's going to get his shot off in the nba. He isn't curry or westbrook in terms of athleticism. Curry has been an injury concern with his size. I can't imagine how young stays healthy when he's that small.

    BTW, he shot 36% from 3 and 32% in conference from 3. He now gets to move back and have guys far more talented guarding him. Should be interesting to see how that goes.

    Also, your age is working against you here. That league has gotten juuuust a bit better since Kukoč.
