  1. This might be the only time we can use him. If he turns Okafor into a player, we can now outbid them for him. I definitely agree on Atkinson's developmental talent and miss him here. If Okafor doesn't show well the rest of the season, that will say a lot to me.

  2. I think Atkinson is going to turn Okafor into a player. If there's anything in Okafor's tank then Atkinson can find it. I hate that we don't have him on our staff.

  4. Offensively, a skillful dynamo. I know one thing. If we land Ayton, Bamba, Porter Jr., Doncic or Bagley. I will be a happy man. All of them can be great.

  5. Depends on price point. Rather have Noel but his demands have been crazy. Okafor needs to show over the rest of the season.

  6. Is this site moving slow for everyone else this AM? Yeah. I take back my earlier comment stating that we might already have Trae Young on the roster in Tyler Dorsey. NOPE!!! I was dead ass wrong!! Playing the comparison game is dangerous, but you are lying to yourself if you don't see some Steph Curry in this kid's game. He's going to be very polarizing as to where to put him in the draft. He's too small, not athletic enough....blah, blah, blah......but he is a dead on shooter who is also an elite passer. The skill level is clearly elite even if the physical tools are ave

  8. I can't say they will all be great. A lot of things go into what makes a player great. Coaching, system fit, talent, BBIQ, role. But I do feel they could be All-Stars. It's no lock but I feel strongly about their talents. Best draft since 1996. But this class lacks depth like 2003. But the top 5, will be special.

  9. Mistakes are made when teams see the athleticism and gamble that they can develop the players' skills later. When you are picking 18-19 year old players it will always be a gamble regardless of athleticism. The amount of mental fortitude, maturity, discipline, work ethic, and a host of other intangibles that is necessary to become a superstar is truly unmeasurable. However, athleticism, like height is a baseline in this league and sport. If you don't have the elite athleticism the odds of becoming and elite player are slim to say the least. I'm not sure Doncic has it, but he does have the heig

  10. They could show his 4th quarter highlight reel. Oh that's right, he was too much of a liability to play late minutes.

  13. Precisely, that was the biggest knock on him coming out of Ohio State. We could honestly say that Doncic is comparable to a taller Russell.

  14. Pretty sure D'Angelo Russell wasn't selected # 2 in the draft because of his athleticism.
