i dont like ayton but that's prob who theyre gonna pick

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 00:26 (one year ago) link

i somehow feel like phx is more cursed team for a good player to end up on than sac right now

ciderpress, Wednesday, 16 May 2018 00:26 (one year ago) link

i meant to go see ayton live when he came through boulder kinda pissed i didnt

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 00:27 (one year ago) link

this draft is hella stocked tho

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 00:27 (one year ago) link

he got exposed in the game they got bounced

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 00:28 (one year ago) link

I’m torn btwn Jackson Jr, Aytom and Bagley. Honestly didn’t watch much college ball this year

Heez, Wednesday, 16 May 2018 00:36 (one year ago) link

nba execs love to say 'you can't teach size', but the most effective bigs have an obvious feel for the game that I haven't seen in Ayton, yet. he's not a stiff and has decent athleticism, so he'll def belong in the nba, but I just can't see him as a legit #1 pick. Top ten easily, but best of class? not unless I squint hard. Bagley seems more legit to me.

given the devaluing of centers, esp. those that can't be two-way players, i find all the big guys at the top of this draft a little anxiety-inducing

call all destroyer, Wednesday, 16 May 2018 01:30 (one year ago) link

yeah, unless they can shoot 3s and switch on screens which makes them immediately draymond

21st savagery fox (m bison), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 01:32 (one year ago) link

dray..... cant shoot 3s

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 01:41 (one year ago) link

20-12 is an insane line for college ball which is what ayton put up btw

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 01:46 (one year ago) link

i mean he literally does shoot 3s tho not well

21st savagery fox (m bison), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 01:47 (one year ago) link

xp but he's one of the ones who can't play defense right?

call all destroyer, Wednesday, 16 May 2018 01:47 (one year ago) link

ayton shot 34% from college three he cn prob achieve dray levels of marksmanship

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 01:48 (one year ago) link

ayton shd be able to play D hes huge athletic w good feet, i mean maybe hell never figure it out but hes got the tools

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 01:49 (one year ago) link

but can he achieve dray levels of...*searches word book*
murksmanship?
barksmanship?

21st savagery fox (m bison), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 01:49 (one year ago) link

tall order for sure

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 01:50 (one year ago) link

ayton has pretty good form for a center, i could def see him becoming a good 3 pt shooter for a center. but he's not gonna ever be great from out there & the question for me is whether you can win a title in the current NBA with playing thru a big man in the post

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 16 May 2018 02:10 (one year ago) link

man what about the famous play the pick n roll

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 02:12 (one year ago) link

of greater concern is being able to guard the perimeter imo

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 02:13 (one year ago) link

lebrons been a bit off is he actually concussed?

ciderpress, Wednesday, 16 May 2018 02:16 (one year ago) link

he looked foggy after he took the hit in my professional opinion

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 02:19 (one year ago) link

also another thing with ayton is that it doesn't seem like he'll ever be a playmaker. i think it's also hard to have a high usage big nowadays who can't pass. the thing w/ draymond is less that he's a shooting threat (teams haven't guarded him for a while) but that he's an incredible passer on the move

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 16 May 2018 02:19 (one year ago) link

oh oops wrong thred lol

ciderpress, Wednesday, 16 May 2018 02:19 (one year ago) link

idk its possible to learn how to pass, its the last skill a lot of very good players develop

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 02:23 (one year ago) link

idk i'm dubious. ayton is a complete animal and i'll think he'll be pretty great but i wouldn't take him #1 and i think bamba could be better.

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 16 May 2018 02:25 (one year ago) link

bamba is reaaally raw in all the areas youre concerned abt ayton tho

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 02:26 (one year ago) link

bamba feels like he was maybe made for an nba of a couple innovation cycles ago, when tyson chandlers roamed

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 02:27 (one year ago) link

its funny how good marcus smart is at running the pick and roll when u dont really have to guard him

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 02:28 (one year ago) link

mavs are gonna draft bamba and pretend it's 2009

call all destroyer, Wednesday, 16 May 2018 02:28 (one year ago) link

offensively maybe but defensively he looks like could be the ideal pace and space big

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 16 May 2018 02:29 (one year ago) link

i think ayton could be KAT-ish in being elite on offense pretty early but still lost and bad on defense 3 years in

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 16 May 2018 02:31 (one year ago) link

lol bron started complaining abt a foul call while he was still grabbing onto monroes arm

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 02:34 (one year ago) link

oops

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 02:34 (one year ago) link

yeah. take it to the thread where dreams go to die.

A is for (Aimless), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 03:21 (one year ago) link

let's talk about bron, baby

where is lebron james playing basketball in 2019?

So an exact copy of KAT then

gritty tigger reboot (agent hibachi), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 15:27 (one year ago) link

ayton is more physically impressive than KAT fwiw

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 15:59 (one year ago) link

kat weirdly has a bunch of unathletic traits duck footed bad posture does not have a thick jacked frame

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 16:01 (one year ago) link

same tbh

yeah that's what i mean

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 16 May 2018 16:27 (one year ago) link

ayton is a physical specimen it's true but his defense at arizona was pretty alarming

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 16 May 2018 16:27 (one year ago) link

yeah but sometimes guys just dont do some things good in college and it turns out to not be a big deal, but then sometimes it is a big deal

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 16:28 (one year ago) link

college basketball is weird and bad and the coaching is bad

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 16:29 (one year ago) link

Anybody know much about Bagley? Looks like the Hawks are p high on him

Heez, Wednesday, 16 May 2018 16:41 (one year ago) link

super active has a good scoring knack/general basketball awareness but maybe be lacking in some necessary nba fundamentals unclear which position(s) he can defend

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 16:43 (one year ago) link

Hmm. Not sure how he’s gonna fit with Collins. The Jackson Jr kid could be a defensive stud, but he’s more of a gamble

Heez, Wednesday, 16 May 2018 16:48 (one year ago) link

feel like hes one of those guys who cld get to the nba and just set it off cause hes a natural baller and everyone will be oh of course, but he cld also be one of those guys who has a lot of talent but never quite clicks idk

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 16 May 2018 16:50 (one year ago) link

def cld be a weird fit next to collins
