Twolves should draft a PF.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2020 22:15:12
I think positional drafting in the top 5 is a bad idea. Best player available, take the guy you see most likely to turn into an all star.

Pick your player to build with

Zion vs Tatum
Trae vs Morant
Greek Freak vs Doncic

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Jul 2020 09:03:45
I’d pick Morant and Giannis. Zion Tatum is tough but if Zion stays healthy yeah he’s my pick.

Agree2 Disagree0

04 Jul 2020 10:47:45
Tatum
Morant
Giannis.

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Jul 2020 15:07:12
Morant and Giannis are clear choices to me.

The Tatum or Zion choice is really hard. Tatum is already a star. His floor is Paul George to me, but I’m not sure I see his ceiling as the best player in the league. Zion’s ceiling is definitely the best player in the league. But his floor is much lower since we’ve only seen a few games. It probably comes down to if you want to gamble or be more conservative.

Agree0 Disagree0

We're talking about a particular skill, what do you prefer?

Kawhi's defense or Durant's offense
Giannis' athleticism or Curry's shooting
Shaq's strength or Magic's passing
Kyrie's Ball handling or Carter's dunking

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2020 14:03:24
Kawhi
Curry
Magic
Carter

Just my opinion.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2020 17:30:43
Kawshi
Curry
Shaq
Carter.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2020 17:50:54
Durant - elite offense players wins championships. If Kawhi was a 14 PER offensive player, he’d be Tony Allen or maybe Draymond Green.
Curry - His shooting created an offense that won 3 rings.
Magic - Shaq’s strength without his BB knowledge and overall skills makes him Steven Adams.
Kyrie - Dunking in a game is pretty overrated.

Agree3 Disagree0

04 Jul 2020 10:00:50
Bmiller- you took kawhi a points away saying be be Allen so take kd’s handles away he is Duncan Robinson. Lots of guys score. I take the two way talent.

Agree0 Disagree1

04 Jul 2020 12:09:08
But it said “Durant’s offense”, so why are you taking part of his offense away?

The point is to make them one way players. Do you want the full defense guy and strip his offense away? Or the full offense and strip his defense away?

Saying “lots of guys score” totally downplays one of the most talented offensive players in the history of the NBA.

If Durant was a league average defender, you could win a championship with him as your best player (he was an average defender in OKC, and made the Finals) . If you made Kawhi a league average offensive player (PER of 15 is league average), he’d be a third option.

next season Bucks go all in. trade for Love.

have love and Greek freak in the front court would kill other teams on the boards. and offensively you couldn't stop them. love stretch out and inside game and GA with his drive and kick.

next they trade for a PG. upgrade over Bledsoe tradeb for chris paul.

then round out the bench on cheap vet contracts

Agree2 Disagree4

02 Jul 2020 18:56:41
I’d take Lopez and Bledsoe over Paul and Love. If this was 5 years ago, sure. But paying Paul and Love 70+ million a year or Bledsoe and Lopez 30? That’s the difference of a max player. You’re basically throwing Middleton away for a minimal upgrade at best, and taking on two incredibly injury prone older players.

Your favorite team is in the finals. You have to give the opposing team 1 20 point scorer . It can be anyone in nba history as long as they had a semi healthy season averaging 20 points. Who do you give them and why?

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jun 2020 21:18:16
1988-89 Adrian Dantley.

20.3 PPG, 46% FG%, 0 3pts, 77% FT%, 5 rebounds, 2.4 AST 2.5 TOs 0.6 BLKs.

All the other team is getting is the 20 points. No real rebounding, no defense and more turnovers than assists. Numbers actually worse than Julius Randle last year.

Agree2 Disagree2

01 Jul 2020 01:43:53
2002-03 Ricky Davis

He might ruin team's chemistry.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jul 2020 15:00:45
I only looked the last 20 years, but guys that jump out at me:

Wiggins: historically inefficient, bad defender. If he were 6’2, he’s probably the clear choice.

Monte Ellis: Similarly inefficient, incredibly ball dominant, no outside shot, horrible defense.

Al Jefferson: Only good at posting up, which people don’t do anymore. He’d either be useless on offense, or require a team to totally overhaul their offense. His defense is historically bad, while playing by far the most important position on defense. Also, the teams he played on just simply seemed incapable of winning.

Rudy Gay: Every team that traded him got considerably better after. He’s been a nice role player as he’s aged, but in his prime, he weighed down franchises. Hard to put your finger on what was wrong, but it always felt like it was him.

Honorable mention: Jahlil Okafor. Came within 2 points of being the runaway winner of this. He has the worst individual season defensive rating of the last 50 years I believe, while playing the most important position. He scored, but totally broke the offense doing it. He’s like Al Jefferson, but every negative turned to 11 and none of the (limited) positives.

Agree3 Disagree2

04 Jul 2020 10:03:03
I’d give any team I was playing against allen Iverson. He shot42% and 35% from 3. He took so many shots and iso ball he ruined team chemistry. Same with Carmelo.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2020 17:25:31
Iverson dragged a bad supporting cast to the Finals. He may not be efficient or be able to work with others, but he was simply great.

Now if you said Booker because of that, I might agree. He’s like Iverson, but doesn’t win.

And if you dropped Melo into a Finals team, I’d be scared that unselfish Olympics Melo would make an appearance and make you regret it.

Agree0 Disagree0

Can Towns play stretch 4 majority of his time on the floor?

Can Utah afford to have Mitchell as their full time point guard?

Any chance the Raptors trade their "franchise player" Kyle Lowry?

Who's 3 young players can pull off a "Miami Big 3" move?

Can Lebron average 20points when he reach 39 yrs?

Can Warriors still be a dynasty?

What teams are a potential dynasty in the making?

Any miracles for New York?

Agree0 Disagree3

29 Jun 2020 23:27:51
No
Yes
I’d say that there’s a pretty decent chance
KAT, Russell and Booker maybe, if that counts
It seems possible
It depends what you mean by dynasty. They could get another title. I think getting 3 would take some small miracles.
Pelicans, Dallas, Boston, Denver off the top of my head
They move to Seattle.

Giannis and Oladipo join Jimmy Butler in Miami?

Agree0 Disagree1

30 Jun 2020 13:34:18
No
Yes
Depends on offer
Giannis/ Siakam/ VanVleet
Possible
For one-three more years
Dallas Miami
Not a chance.

Agree0 Disagree3

01 Jul 2020 15:13:59
No, he can barely defend 5’s. Defending PFs would be a disaster.

Yes, but they’d need a really good ball handling SG or SF. But i think it’s the best course for them.

Yes, very high chance. They’re not a team that is afraid to shake things up.

Giannis and others seems like the option here. Maybe him and one of Beal or Oladipo join another team.

I won’t bet against Lebron, Tom Brady, or Tim Duncan.

Absolutely. They have 3 current incredibly unselfish all stars in their primes, a top 5 pick, and a lottery pick next year most likely. I’d take their future over just about anyone.

Bucks, Pels, Mavs are probably the most likely. Maybe Miami. Oh, and Boston.

Never say never. But no.

Any chance the kings can sign montrezl harrell? I think he'll fit in nicely

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jun 2020 14:08:07
If they let go of Bogi?
