I am gonna say it, we should have drafted Lillard. I know you are gonna tell me but we have Kemba, but fug, Lillard is just on another level imo. 

 

The funny thing was I thought Lillard was the best / most skilled player in the draft. (not potential) And still would have past on him due to Kemba. 

 

Looking back that was a bad decision. Kemba is not a tier 1 player. Close and some could say he could become one, but right now he is on that 2nd tier of PG's. 

 

Lillard is a sure fire 1st tier PG and potential perennial all star. 

 

Never pass up tier 1 talent unless you already have tier 1 talent at that position.

Dunlap (yes I'm aware he sucks) sure used Kemba and Pargo a lot to close games in Lillard's rookie season, so I think we could have made it work.

thats beside the point. you cant pass up tier 1 talent unless you already have tier 1 talent at same position.

Now imagine them together.  With a healthy Big Al.

 

Man, I'm not 100% sure it would work, but it'd be damn fun to watch.

Why you leave off shooting %'s and the year differences? 

 

Kemba is a nice PG but he isn't on Lillards level.

Kemba is a nice PG but he isn't on Lillards level. 

 

becus i was on my phone and cudnt bring up full stats...

 

 

Lillard .427 FG% - .381 3pt% - 0.8 steals - 2.7 turnovers

Kemba .398 FG% - .322 3pt% - 1.4 steals - 2.2 turnovers

 

you guys are making it out like Kemba is a child compared to Lillard. They are pretty close- but the edge def goes to Lillard

Kemba is a really nice PG, hence even I who rarely if ever puts on homer glasses, am guilty of doing so in this instance. 

 

Kemba is def a tier 2 PG right below the elites. And hell maybe one day can become elite. It was clear as day Lillard was a tier 1 PG / player in this league i.e size, athleticism, skill, etc.

There's no way we could have gotten both, we've already been over this.

 There's also no way we should be stuck with the talent we have after all the years of top picks. Pretty sure we could have pulled that off somehow.
