Stacked Draft Tonight (Draft Thread)

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.

    Hate to see #MyGrizz loose out on Doncic. Jackson will be good but he’s not chinteresting.
  • 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.

    Celtics with the pick of the night imo, Robert Williams at 27 is insane. He has all star level potential as a rim running, shot blocking presence at the 4. Basically a poor mans Ayton at 6"11. Ainge is a fucking mastermind.

    Ainge is lucky with this pick ... but that’s why good organizations are good because there are a lot of stupid ones.

    If they can just get him to be a high energy defensive rim runner guy that fits a huge role for them ... think more athletic Baynes ...

    But his upside is way higher than that if he puts the pieces together ... playing in a strong organization will also be a massive benefit for him

    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

    Nowitzki
    Parker
    Gasol
    Gasol
    Peja
    Petrovic (RIP)
    Vlade
    Detlef
    Kukoc
    Porzingas
    Giannis
    Gobert
    Jokic

    This criticism used to have some validity but it’s “stop loving in the past” status at this point.

    Measure that against the number of busts. This list is 13 deep over a 30+ year period.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Tend to agree on Young. The worst think is the Curry comparison

    I actually liked to watch Curry in college and his teams won because of him. Not many players get me to turn on a college game and I didn't see one OU game because they sucked

    Every small skinny guy isn't going to be a rare top 50 (all time not now) player like Steph

    Trey Young ran out of gas after about 12 games. He sucked dick in February and March.
    He's not Curry, that's for damned sure.

    I'm hoping Doncic's mom goes retro Jeannie Buss with the basketball photo shoot.
