I hate the idea that Charlotte "needed a star" so they drafted the guy with the biggest name, irrespective of part of the reason he is biggest name is because his road to the NBA was a complete clown show. Can't shoot, weak on defense, thinks he's a star but probably won't be able to score at any level in the NBA, hard pass.See to me he screams, mercurial bench PG for like 12 years.
Yeah, it would be pretty shocking if none of the top 5 picks make an all-star team. There have been a fair amount of drafts over the last few decades in which just one top 5 pick made an all star team at some point, but I can't see any (even the ghastly 2000 draft) in which none of the top 5 picks ever got selected for the AS team.A little. Lot of guys make an all-star team over a long enough period, single good half years, bad injury seasons, weak conferences,
The scouting report on him is that he is basically Lonzo, except that unlike Lonzo he is a lackadaisical defender and unlike Lonzo, is a shoot-first player. Obviously some draft experts are really high on him, but I think that it's a really risky pick.Tend to think at worst he'll be something resembling his brother. So I'd be surprised if he is a bust.
Presti just consolidated picks?! What the hell is going on?!View: https://twitter.com/JonKrawczynski/status/1329234543317049346
Ricky rubio coming home?
17 for Rubio 25 and 28.
Makes a lot of sense for both teams
I think it's a great draft to have 3 non-premium picks honestly. This draft is deep, just the top end isn't good.Yeah, I honestly can’t think of a worse year in recent memory.
