I must be missing something with this pick. I could see it going in a variety of ways and I’d be somewhat conflicted who to take here.
I actually had to take a look and I missed someone that I'm sure J is talking about and I would take him over the guy I had.

The next two picks would be easy for me but everyone has their preference.
I see at least 3 guys at the same position in the same tier.

i think we're starting to head into no man's land - where you could make a solid case for nearly a dozen guys.

Not me. Like I could kinda maybe put one other guy at the same position close to the same tier, but I still think one guy stands out.

If I stick with the 3 guys at the same position but change positions I guess I can see who others might be thinking.

A few guys I have no chance of getting that I would love to pair with Luka.

Anthony Davis. The PnR game here would be unstoppable.

Klay Thompson. The catch and shooting ability bodes very well in this particular situation.

Beal is another player I think would fit nicely with Donic.

I am conflicted on my choice, there are four unbelievably obvious options to choose from. Deciding right now, if you want to make a trade up, you have to PM me within the next hour!

Listen, I get off work kind of late. Trust me, the trade calls are FLYING. :lol:

I have narrowed it down to two. One player is probably better, but I might just make the obvious fun pick. Basically throwing "looking for trades" as a classic "let me stall, I haven't decided yet." The pick will be in momentarily, before 5:00 Central Time.

I decided that this Draft is for fun, not strategy.

With the twelfth overall Draft Pick, the *checks notes* Brooklyn Nets select....

Karl-Anthony Towns
Image

With this pick, the Brooklyn Nets effectively secure ourselves the most dynamic offensively Center in NBA history.

Here is a great video breaking down the positives and negatives of Karl-Anthony Towns. His defense is subpar (at the most important position, unfortunately), but his offensive ability is legitimately transcendent.

The gamble here is that he will be healthy and motivated next season, once again jumping into the top ten player conversation. Building around him is a nightmarish venture, but it is not impossible.

SG:
SF:
PF:
CE: Karl-Anthony Towns

You (and by extension, your son) will be receiving a PM very shortly. I am aggressively looking to trade up, here.

Well this definitely wasn't one of the guys on my list but I knew someone would take him too early.

I have at least three players ahead of him, for what it is worth, but decided to go a more fun route.

You are on the clock, but look at my offers. I am 100% overpaying to move back up, because I picked a nightmare to build around.

I did the same exact thing last year in taking KAT for shits and giggles to try to build around. Was fun at first. Now I realize I wouldn’t want to be Rosas.

the lad is a late sleeper. he's 16, what can i say? i'll try to nudge him for a pick. he went to bed expecting one of his two guys to still be available - but alas, both are still available. and, yes, i have a feeling i will be sniped.

Your son must be exhausted, you should definitely make an executive decision for him and accept that trade offer I sent you over PM. :lol:

i'll mention that to him. but so far he's been averse to trades - and, like i said, he went to bed content that one of his two guys would still be there - he'll wake up finding that both are.

If he wants to trade out of the first to pick up an extra 2nd and 3rd... :D

I'll up the ante. Anybody that picked ahead of me can have my picks 2-10. Zion and any of those guys would need 10 men defending them just to shut them down!

somewhat sniped by Son of, but i'm good. my selection is someone i kind of ignored earlier - but once i looked at where he's going, i'm completely on board.

at this stage of the draft, i'm looking for someone who can get me 20+ ppg, is a solid to excellent defender (his local press has labeled it "elite" - i don't know if i'd go that far), hits around 40% of his threes (39.8% on 7 per game), is a young player who has taken the next step to being a bonafide star (up 8 ppg this year to 23.6 plus increases in all the other categories as well) - and has positional flexibility to help me farther down in this draft. there were a number of guys who filled one or more of these requirements - but this is the player who seemed to check all my boxes the best.

Jayson Tatum to the Clippers at 14.

Paul George was who I was referring to as the obvious pick, and who I would have moved up for. Alpha scorer, shoots 40% from 3, and one of the best defenders in the league.

Tatum is a nice pick here too.

PG is who wanted instead of Curry. Offense and defense. Position versatility. Offering Curry on trade downs.

Had Tatum last year, late 2nd. No denying he is a budding star.

well, it's a weirdly rich time in the draft depending on how you want to build your team. i think good cases can be made for about 10 guys - but these two obviously floated to the top for me and me boy. i had george last year - wanted him again, but am very satisfied with the tatum pick.
