Mamba, What made you change your mind on Jackson? Remember you said you didn't like him and only wanted Fultz or Ball.

Dlo last 9 starts: 23.8 ppg, 5.2 apg, 47.8 fg% & 41.6 3pt%
post #15632 of 16126
I still don't like him, think he has the lowest ceiling out of him, Fultz, and Ball. But Tatum doesn't do enough on the defensive end after evaluating his entire year to warrant him going #3.

Tatum shouldnt even go top 6 to be honest. He has bust written all over him imo.

I still think jackson is better than Ball, but I'm kinda rethinking my stance lately. The thought of a Dlo/Ball backcourt is too intriguing to me. Yeah you'd have defensive problems, but imagine the shooting, decision making and passing. Oh my gawd.

Bottom line, as long as u keep the pick, you're hitting a homer. Or at the very least a double laugh.gif

I just can't see DLO at the 2 

post #15639 of 16126
Well Fultz looks more like a 2 than DLo. DLo & Ball would be so bad defensively.

If we luck up into the #1 pick and Magic & Rob picks Lonzo..... mean.gif

Devin Booker tho........ laugh.gifroll.gif

People expected much more of Wiggins especially as an all around talent.

As for Booker...he's averaging 2 less points, 1 less reb, 1 more assist than Wiggins and is barely removed from being a teenager. So if Wiggins is a great, what is Booker 🤔?

Expected. Great word. wink.gif

Booker is also slotting in at below average based on PER. Shoots at a lower % than Wiggins, and is a lesser defender. He is younger tho, so he certainly can keep growing, but pretty clear Wiggins is the better player, and a guy the whole league wanted to tank for. And got traded for straight up for a 24 year old KLove. (who everyone was chasing as well)

He also has the Kobe issue, where he has to share the ball with KAT, Book does not.

Fultz is more athletic than dlo but he's not an elite athlete.

It's crazy to me how dlo just instantly made a huge leap in his % and turnovers. That's something I was concerned about but now this guy is looking like a true #1 option if he can keep it up. He's always had the ability to shift defenders with his handle but he's just recently been finishing those plays and driving to the rack. Crazy what difference just a little bit of spacing can do

Last night I said he played great. Next time I'll remember that King Jaffe says I must only say he played great and nothing else. Kewl 👍
post #15646 of 16126
I still think DLo is more efficient as the number 2 guy on the team instead of being the primary ball handler

BI is getting more consistent as of late, I like it, he's gonna be great by year 3

I really like our team going forward
I have a bad feeling that Randle or Nance will get traded within 2 years though

Fultz has some Kyrie in him in this way.

Not the most explosive, but very good at getting to his spot, using his body to create space and angling.

I know it's a 9 game stretch so small sample size and all that.

But the only players to average equal to or greater than 23.8 ppl, 5.2 apg & 41.6 3pt% for a full season are:

Curry (2015-2016 & 2013-2014 seasons)
Bird (85-86 & 84-85 seasons)
MJ (94-95 season) (the season where he returned and only played 17 games)

Only 3 of the greatest NBA players in history.

And Dlo just turned 21 a month ago mean.gif

I'd trade nance. The possibility of Randle improving his play making even more makes me want him to stay

I actually think Fultz forces Dlo to be more of a 2 than Ball would. Feel like Dlo and Ball could both play the 1 or 2 while Fultz is locked down at 1.

I can kinda see that as far as craftiness. Kyrie has really quick feet and hands tho. The Brandon Roy comparisons are pretty apt imo, athletically. It's hard for me to throw out the word 'elite' when talking athletic pgs tho, especially ones with the size of 2 guards. I think that throws people off when they see a guy labeled as a PG who can dunk with ease and they kinda forget that they're 6'5+ ie mudiay.

I'm wondering if the list is even that long of guys doing it for 9+ games. This kinda stuff isn't really normal

Sort of. D-Will never was the acrobat that Kyrie and I think Fultz will be, but he definitely knew how to use his body to create space to get to the cup.

Same. However, I would like Randle to improve his shot selection and pick n roll defense.

Can we plz stop talking about Fultz its starting to depress me mean.gif
Lord knows the league won't bless us with him.

So what happens to JC if it's Dlo + top 3 pick in the backcourt?

Maybe JC is only starting so we can showcase him as a starter and then trade him in the summer
