Haliburton, and now

Killian Hayes.

Interesting that you are willing to draft these two in the top 5. I like both prospects but a bit later. You really like the guards at the top of this draft.

I do and I think its the same old NBA story. Everyone reaching for size and not skill. Schlenk says he likes players who can dribble, shoot, and pass. I am all in on that.

So am I but I’m not about to reach on a guy in the top 5 that plays a position where he may not sniff being a starter.

Haliburton would almost have to be a trade down scenario to me unless we picked outside the top 5.

If we get Haliburton at 8, that’s an A- to me, at 7th pick, a B+, at 6, a B, but if we select him at the 5th pick, it’s a B-/C+ grade. You have to take into account the position where you draft a prospect. Otherwise, other GM’s love you for leaving them the meat 🥩 on the tray.

I think Haliburton is a lock to be a starter with no bust potential. I have Hayes in the Starter to 6th man category. If he gets his shot ironed out from three, he is a lock to be a starter as well.

So you think if the Knicks take Haliburton he will not start. Interesting.

Knicks possibly and the Pistons maybe. Those are the only 2 teams that would start him and if they did I’d feel badly cuz he might get eatin up thrown in there like that. 
 

Again as a sophomore, Haliburton was 15 and 6.5 dimes. Trae was 28 points and 9 dimes.

Buzz, you may be falling into the trap of “falling in love with the draft cuz it’s closer now” syndrome.

I like his ball handling. shooting, defense, and size.

I've been on Haliburton for a while but I went with Okoro.  Haliburton will be solid but he's rail thin so the size/defense you're looking for may take a while to come to fruition.  Super solid player though.

Okoro has size/defense/athleticism to contribute right away.  That made the difference for me.

@Buzzard All this Haliburton praise and you vote for Hayes 😐 wtf 🤔 😆 alrighty then. 
 

Ya I know, Haliburton is next. But our whole argument was mainly if he would go top 5 and I said he wouldn’t and now you agreed with me voting Hayes 5th. 
 

Oh wait you voted for him 3rd or 4th. 😂 Even worse.

 

ps Haliburton is a solid pick for us but after the 5th pick, beginning at 6 perhaps.
