Jaime Jaquez has been one of my favorite players to watch for the last 3 years. Plays hard, has worked to expand his game so much. Defends. Fights hard every second.

Remember in his first year, all UCLA would talk about was how he was already a lead-by-example guy as a freshman.

damn riles had to be champing at the bit to draft this guy lmao

J0rdan S., Friday, 23 June 2023 02:17 (one year ago) link

v v interesting how so many of these guys are going with Hard Worker as a personality when the world's least grindesetted superstar just won

slai gorgeous-alexander (m bison), Friday, 23 June 2023 02:19 (one year ago) link

obvious move there for the rockets

the nightmare is over

Clay, Friday, 23 June 2023 02:20 (one year ago) link

honestly they were rumored to be interested in him at #4, kinda of crazy to get him AND amen

slai gorgeous-alexander (m bison), Friday, 23 June 2023 02:20 (one year ago) link

can anyone think of precedents for a projected top 5 pick who fell out of the lottery and then was still good in the NBA? i feel like this happens in football especially with QBs but i’m drawing a blank on any basketball examples

J0rdan S., Friday, 23 June 2023 02:23 (one year ago) link

maybe not top 5 prospect, but dejounte was projected in the lottery and fell to 29

slai gorgeous-alexander (m bison), Friday, 23 June 2023 02:24 (one year ago) link

didnt rob williams fall pretty far

ciderpress, Friday, 23 June 2023 02:26 (one year ago) link

was hoping clowney would fall to 23

Clay, Friday, 23 June 2023 02:27 (one year ago) link

gotta be leonard miller

Clay, Friday, 23 June 2023 02:35 (one year ago) link

MPJ?

Spottie, Friday, 23 June 2023 02:36 (one year ago) link

oh yeah MPJ is a good one

J0rdan S., Friday, 23 June 2023 02:38 (one year ago) link

he may have still been in the lottery but certainly counts in spirit

J0rdan S., Friday, 23 June 2023 02:39 (one year ago) link

it’s understandable that matt armstrong stopped posting on ILH given his demanding job as GM of the mavs

The Kings are trading Richaun Holmes and No. 24 to Dallas, sources tell ESPN.

celtics taking that pick they got for marcus and trading right out of the first round

The Celtics will get No. 31 in the trade, per source. https://t.co/DHxLqCuLlc

lag∞n, Friday, 23 June 2023 02:50 (one year ago) link

dammit i need to stay awake for 6 more picks

call all destroyer, Friday, 23 June 2023 02:53 (one year ago) link

Celtics should be in range to use the $5M Taxpayer MLE after they trade Marcus Sasser to the Pistons and drop out of the #25 pick.

call all destroyer, Friday, 23 June 2023 02:54 (one year ago) link

lol yeah they are keeping me up

ciderpress, Friday, 23 June 2023 02:56 (one year ago) link

Pacers are keeping No. 26 and eyeing a mid-major riser on boards.

— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 23, 2023



this is cracking me up he sounds like a game show host

J0rdan S., Friday, 23 June 2023 02:59 (one year ago) link

i didn't know there are multiple kobes

Clay, Friday, 23 June 2023 03:16 (one year ago) link

one day the league will be only kobes

Clay, Friday, 23 June 2023 03:16 (one year ago) link

come on

Hearing the Celtics are trading down yet again from No. 31. Swapping with the Hornets for picks Nos. 34 and 39.

Celtics are trading Colby Jones to the Kings for No. 38 and a future second rounder, sources said. https://t.co/YIIMaQyl3d

our long nightmare is over i have no idea who either of these guys are

Celtics have taken Jordan Walsh at No. 38 and Mouhamed Gueye at No. 39.

— Brian Robb (@BrianTRobb) June 23, 2023

lag∞n, Friday, 23 June 2023 03:47 (one year ago) link

they also picked up 3 future 2nds lol

lag∞n, Friday, 23 June 2023 03:47 (one year ago) link

they got their gueye

ciderpress, Friday, 23 June 2023 03:47 (one year ago) link

lol

lag∞n, Friday, 23 June 2023 03:49 (one year ago) link

who knows what a 2nd is worth you can get brad beal for six but also you can get five for the 25th pick

lag∞n, Friday, 23 June 2023 03:49 (one year ago) link

nuggets seem to be targeting guys who have size and can shoot it. I can’t say I’ve ever seen any of these dudes play, but I like the type of player they’ve gotten, their bench minutes have been such a black hole

k3vin k., Friday, 23 June 2023 03:50 (one year ago) link

ok whatever idc

Per source, Jordan Walsh is headed to the Celtics and Mouhamed Gueye is not.

lag∞n, Friday, 23 June 2023 03:50 (one year ago) link

I’m a little surprised they didn’t take jackson jr, he seemed like a nugget

k3vin k., Friday, 23 June 2023 03:50 (one year ago) link

guy from ucla gets drafted and emerges from the crowd wearing a suit with no shirt

lag∞n, Friday, 23 June 2023 03:54 (one year ago) link

so they kinda just forfeited one of the firsts they got from washington? i’m sure it a cap thing but i thought they could have actually used a new young guy

J0rdan S., Friday, 23 June 2023 03:54 (one year ago) link

yeah

lag∞n, Friday, 23 June 2023 03:56 (one year ago) link

they also picked up 3 future 2nds lol

those are good to have because they can trade them for six 2nds even further in the future. and they can trade those six and turn them into 12. eventually, in 2040 or so, the c's will own every pick in the entire second round. which they will package to trade back into the 2041 1st round, at #27.

fact checking cuz, Friday, 23 June 2023 03:57 (one year ago) link

weird saga

Sources: The Cleveland Cavaliers are selecting Emoni Bates at No. 49.
