    At this point, math is much easier than having to watch this team

    Yup, we traded a Unicorn because we’re going to get KD.... Dolan knows what he’s doing

    Yea we need to stay in the top 5. Continuously drafting in the 7-10 range is a recipe for mediocracy. Unless you strike gold, you'll end up with zero franchise changing talent and a bunch of role players in that range.

    Luck is still involved, but getting top 5 picks is where the real talent is. All of these guys are better than any young player we have. Keeping KP would've had us in this category as well, paring him with Zion/Barret/Ja/ but we know what happened with that.

    Sixers (2 top 5 picks) = Embiid and Simmons
    Kings (2 top 5 picks) = Fox and Bagley
    Lakers (3 top 5 picks) = Ingram, Ball, DLo
    Celtics (2 top 5 picks) = Brown, Tatum

    I know sports book used to have crazy bets like that. You could literally bet what the 1st basket of the game was going to be.

    Don't want Reddish at all.

    1) Zion
    2) RJ
    3) Ja

    That's the 3 in order I would take them. If we take Ja then I don't know what we do with DSJ, Unless we play Ja as a SG.

    ^ trade frank, dont resign mudiay and if kyrie comes he will start in the backcourt with either ja or dsj while the other one sits on the bench... who knows if we even get the top 3 pick or if kyrie comes here but if kyrie and ja come here i wouldnt even be mad... obviously the plan is to get zion but we got bad luck in getting the #1 pick...if we have 3 pgs on this team there will be playing time for all 3 it wont be like phoenix where they had bledsoe, dragic and IT so they had to break that team up...
