:lol:

Or know how to use google.

We get it. It’s your party (the draft) and you’ll cry if you want to.
Did you address where he had him in his top 5 before he got hurt? No? Because you lack the capacity to do so.

And everyone knows that.
Does the NBA draft happen at the start of the year?

Nope.

He has foot issues, so he dropped.

Sorry to break that reality to you.

Now that early season top 5 guy has empty seats in the front row at his pro day.
And so everyone says he's freak talented, top 5 talented but he's injured and you argue that he's not that talented. Then you argue that he's injured. Even you can't make that up. Get a proofreader.

It’s his feet people are worried about.

bol will always have problems on the block when some 250 lb center (and yes, it could even be a 230 lb center) puts his hip into him - which will happen nearly every offensive and defensive possession. it'll be hitting bol on the thigh - and ass beats thigh 1000 to 0. i know i wouldn't want montrezl jacking his big ass into my poor thigh 140 times in a game. multiply by 82. bol's not built for the league.
His dad lasted in the league for a while and was a good defender.

Well throw some shit out there. Who do you want at 11? You willing to move up? How about down? What kind of ball should we play with our roster? What kind of ball do you think Ryan wants to play? Is Rosas the end all be all or is he all in with Ryan to get him his guys? Are we on the cusp according to them? Or is this a fill it out and see year? Are you all in to win this year? Playoffs or bust? Or are you willing to take a horizontal year to try to jump big next year? Hoppy or Malty? Blonde or brunette? Golf or swimming? Wisconsin Dells or Valley Fair? Thinktank or HHM?

I'm still digesting as much stuff is a can on prospects. Can somebody tell me about Romeo Langford? He's either a hot mess or the hand injury was partially or more to blame.

if NO can get atlanta to part with their 8 and 10 for their new 4 - that holds some interesting possibilities. in particular, who is NO going to pick at 4 that moves the needle for them? they have ball, jrue and payton - so garland isn't needed. they've got ingram and zion - so hunter isn't needed. they've got jrue - hart - ingram and moore, so culver isn't needed. if sekou lasts till 8, and hayes is there at 10 - that could be a really great addition to NO's new guard.

ball - payton
jrue - hart
ingram - moore
zion - doumbouya
hayes - randle

that's a nice regroup and a pretty fun team to watch

I don't think it is that good. They really lack shooting and I don't think that lineup can defend.

I think it’s actually a good defensive lineup. Agree on the shooting woes though.

I don't see it as good but maybe at their peak potential they are average.

i don't know why you think they'd be average. jrue is a helluva defender and that's easily been the shining light of lonzo's brief career as well. they'd have the makings of perhaps the best backcourt D in the league. zion's a definite plus defender - and that's what they'd be drafting hayes for. average at best?

I would love to be their GM. There are so many ways they can go. They could easily go the trade fo and sign vet route or go full rebuild. Zion is game ready so they could be really good this year but I still think I'm taking Garland with the 4th pick and moving Lonzo. Keep Jrue around for a little while until Garland is ready then move him. But would Lonzo and 4 get you Beal?

None of the picks have really changed since last week when they posted it.

They still have the wolves picking Nasir Little at 11.

They are going with 1-11

Zion
Ja
RJ
Culver
Garland
Coby
Hunter
Reddish
Seko
Hayes
Nassir Wolves

11. Minnesota Timberwolves


Nassir Little
North Carolina
Age: 19.3
F

Height: 6-foot-6 | Weight: 224

The former top-five recruit saw his stock drop after an inconsistent freshman season, but he has appeared to have worked his way back into the lottery with a strong pre-draft process, particularly by showing better outside shooting potential.

Little's toughness, athleticism and long-term potential will be attractive to an organization that is attempting to reboot its culture after the dismissal of head coach Tom Thibodeau and the hiring of a new decision-maker in Gersson Rosas.

I'd be happy with any of these top 11. I feel 4 through 11 are a pretty even batch of prospects. Thats why I'd be against trading up. Sure there are going to be some hits and misses, but as prospects they're pretty even in my eyes.

I'm looking forward to the Zion show on Thursday. Wolves keeping their pick would be a bonus.

Zion and many of the lottery picks can all be awesome or simply pretty good. I'm excited to hear the opinions about Zion and the other players. The drafts have been fun the past few years as the talent pool has been deep.

Having a GM that comes from a great organization gives me hope that we can pull out the talent from all the options.

not me. he's highly rated because of high school play and measurables. in college, he didn't do well at all. not sure why high school potential trumps college performance. little seems like a great pick to take a shot at - outside the lottery.

I'm coming around to the Nassir Little camp. I wouldn't be upset with this.

College shooting was a weakness, but he actually shot the ball decent as a high school kid. AND, unlike fellow under performing freshman Reddish, Little has a solid rep as a hard worker. I still have concerns about him sharing the ball.

Can't help think MKG when you see him. But there really isn't any concrete reason to think he'll be a career bricklayer like MKG turned out to be. But again, with Wigs on the roster it makes zero sense.

Its a tough transition going from playing under the basket in high school to playing out on the perimeter in college.
High school to college is a big jump and then changing positions makes it bigger.
If he develops to his full potential he should be a good one.
