Yes.  If you could draft from the position of hindsight everyone would be pretty good at drafting.  You missed the point

 

I didn't miss the point. You're trying to compare questions about Curry at the time to McDermott's now, and I'm saying it's apples (PG skills?) and oranges (physical tools necessary for what position, exactly?).

man no. What positives come out of this?!?!? We could get Randle. Garry Harris. SCORERS!! Something we need. Yall want Thad he plays good D and is a finisher but he can't do much of anything els.e

Lol you've never seen Lewis play... He has a great perimeter game and and can also play down low; not to mention he fits our system perfectly.

Randle is an undersized forward with no outside game who does not fit our system... Quit looking to add what you think are the best players and try to build the best roster that fits together (i.e. the Spurs). Randle could not play with Jefferson because they both need to play on the block.

Oh and Garry Harris is a midget. Good luck to him getting his shot off at the next level.

Rookies aren't going to come in and be game-changers, the east is down right now... adding veterans gives us a chance compete right now.

Complete bs.  6' 9 and 19 years old is undersized for PF?!?? no. no no. AL is leaving soon if we keep going at this rate. THAD is trash. He played with the 26ers last year his stats are very inflated. And Garry can play the 1.

More like granny apples to red apples.  More similar than dissimilar.  People were also questioning whether he had the quickness to defend PGs and the strength or length to defend 2 guards.  Many were not sure how he would fit.

 

nbadraft.net:

 

 Far below NBA standard in regard to explosivenes and athleticism ... At 6-2, he's extremely small for the NBA shooting guard position, and it will likely keep him from being much of a defender at the next level ... Although he's playing point guard this year, he's not a natural point guard that an NBA team can rely on to run a team ... Struggles defensively getting around screens ... Can overshoot and rush into shots from time to time (vs. WV) ... Hasn't had to deal with getting benched due to poor performance (shooting) which has allowed him to shoot through any slumps. Will have to adjust to not being a volume shooter which could have an effect on his effectiveness ... Doesn’t like when defenses are too physical with him ... Not a great finisher around the basket due to his size and physical attributes ... Makes some silly mistakes at the PG position. Needs to add some muscles to his upper body, but appears as though he'll always be skinny

 

 

They absolutely questioned his physical tools necessary to play either position in the NBA.

 

You could almost substitute McDermott for Curry and get the same exact scouting report.

I have come to the conclusion that some of you guys are just have a terrible eye for talent.

Yes... 6'10 is your average height for a power forward making Randle undersized... he's essentially Thaddeus Young without an outside game or a court vision. 

 

Secondly, there is no way Jefferson is leaving. Cho and Jordan probably won't even let him get to free agency.

 

Finally, you're naive. Lewis (who is a stretch four, which fits our system) averaged 18 points per game on 45% shooting (the lowest of his career). Lewis is a career 50% shooter but was the main focus of the Sixers offense leading teams to double him. It didn't matter as he still average 18 ppg (45% shooting), 6 rpg, and 2.3 apg.

 

Yeah.... he's trash lol.

More like there are a lot of people on this board that don't understand that finding the right fit for the team is more important than finding the best player... (see: Melo in NY, Love in Minn, Irving in Cleveland).

You must be talking about the McDermott fan club, or else you don't know what you're talking about, lol.

What in there didn't I say already?

 

Of course they wondered if he could play PG, which I said, but they knew he'd have to play PG, like I said.
