8 posts in this topic

04' - Emeka Okafor - PF/C

05' - Sean May - PF

08' - Alexis Ajinca - PF

11' - Bismack Biyombo - PF/C

Just for more interesting numbers (include 2nd rd):

4 - PGs

2 - SGs

6 - SFs

they've drafted 6 gaurds to 13 bigs. I don't get your point.

But anyways, this isn't the year to draft a big. There is no big worth taking early. Even if Zeller is there. He will be an average NBA player. We have to stop drafting NBA players. IF McClemore or Shabazz is there, then we have to take one. Those are the only two guys that are legit scorers that have super star potential. Get a big in free agency or trade. No need to draft them.

Don't know if you actually watch UCLA but there is no guarantee that Baz is going to be a superstar or anything close. He has Harrison Barnes syndrome. Baz was hyped up to much and hasn't lived up to the hype. McLemore on the other hand #DoWant

well, i dont know about you, but I dont consider the SF position a "BIG"

Morrison, Dudley, MKG, Taylor are not "BIGs" - shoot, Derrick Brown wasn't a "BIG" imho, but i still put him under the PFs

yeah, i agree- he fits the bill for what Kemba needs- a guy who you can pair with an attacking PG and knock down the shot without the ball first.. good defense, nice size

but i think if we don't address the frontcourt with a trade/draft pick, we are foolish

Kemba is a drive first point guard so if you give him an asset to kick out to (like McLemore), Kemba becomes much more dangerous because then the other guard is forced to stay on McLemore in stead of helping out on the drive against Kemba.

Just my two cents

Right now they aren't having to help off the guards anyway. The screen roll is usually being trapped by the screener's defender and the guy guarding the other big drops down into the lane to take away the roll. The guys guarding the other wing players are staying home with their men.

Getting our screen and roll to work better is a matter of us having bad bigs right now, not a lack of shooters or scorers.

    • Scouting report: A player who arguably all season long was the best offensive threat in college basketball sits around the later top ten in almost all draft boards. Monk is easily compared to Jamal Crawford because of his aggressive shooting combined with the ability to score from anywhere. Monk shot a near 40 percent from three while shooting 82 percent from the free throw line in his first year at Kentucky. Monk averaged an SEC second best 19.8 points per game. Monk has a shooting skillset that is needed in the NBA but is hard to find. He has that unconscious shooting stroke which can be Curry like at times. What intrigues scouts the most about Monk is that he is not just a shooter, he plays above the rim and he can guard either the one or the two. Although Monk showed off his high-flying display all year long at Kentucky, it was his defense that stood out the most. His run and gun mentality allows him to jump passing lanes and play in your face defense on almost every possession forcing turnovers and fast break opportunities quite frequently. Monk is a dangerous transition guard who can score in a flurry. With the way that the NBA is going regarding athletic three point shooting guards, Monk would fit well with virtually every team in the NBA and could be used in multiple different lineups. Even though he is a shooter, Monk has the capability of running an offense and getting his teammates open.
