Fellas we might need to take a look at Oladipo with our 2nd pick.

that wasn't a very impressive highlight video, I want to see a variety of shots, dribbles, dunks, defense in a highlight video. That video showed the same 4 plays over and over..... I havnt really watched much Indiana yet this season so I wont say anything about this kid yet

That's why I linked his stats and the video from Jay Bilas. Maybe check that out and make a comment.

There are too many good guards in this league to try to make one a franchise player. At the top of the draft, unless the player is John Wall exceptional, take a big. With Kemba, Sessions, Hendo, etc. we're fine at the position. No need to fix what's not broken. Why we have Mullens and Bismack in our starting rotation should be the obvious reason we're not winning games. Plus, don't rule out the chances we win the lottery. We're due for a break.

Don't want to say much because I haven't really seen him play: but opinion of stats

He looks like a athlete that can take advantage at a college level who slashes and scores at the rim. Players that score from outside don't shoot 64% from the field. Sounds like a lot of dunks and layups. Those are plays that wont come easy at the next level where every team is full of elite athletes. This also does not fit the needs of the Bobcats which is a post scorer (Big Man) and a pure scorer/shooter at the 2 guard.

His 1st 2 seasons he only took 26 and 48 three point attempts and shot a dismal 20% and 30% at that rate with a shorter 3pt line than the NBA plays at.

The assist/steals/rebounds numbers are good, but those are hustle plays. I value that more than the average scout but those attributes can be found in many players and definitely in the 2nd round.

That being said he is shooting 51% from 3 this yr and has taken 37 shots from behind the arc so far. While that is still a small sample size it appears he has improved and is willing to shoot outside more. Its still iffy for me since its not hard to find a (Gerald Green) type play that he appears to be solely off his statistical numbers.

At this point I would still like to add both 1st round picks towards big men positions. I am still waiting to evaluate most of the prospects at the Bigs and shabazz and mclemore. I have been hammered with high school football signing day but all that ends here this week so I can start looking at the players in more depth for NBA/NFL drafts.

He looks like a Wade type player. With his handles, Speed, hops or up's(jumping ability) and ability to attack the rim. He also shook the poo out of MKG in one of thos highlights. If he has improve his jumper and 3 point shooting to 51% like his stats say. That tell me he's a hard worker. Then you add in his defense and that is not a bad pick for our 2nd 1st round pick. If you match him with a Big from the 1st pick we have.

Meh. I would rather get a guy like CJ McCollum who can score in a variety of different ways with our second 1st round pick.

Smart move a 6'3 shooting guard.

    • A hot steak straight from the grill tastes 1000 times better than any of that stuff to me. I've tried to lie to myself and tell myself it doesn't but it won't work, lol.

    • I like Funchess, but it wasn't that long ago there were huge threads in here about moving KB to TE, trading him or cutting him. I knew throwing in Steve Smith would cause people to compare KB and Smith (not my intention) and not take a real look at how well KB has actually done. I love Benjamin and after two years (one rookie and one post ACL) I think we've seen him dominate enough games to not poo on him as much as we do.

      I want Funchess to take the next step but I sure don't think of him as capable of replacing Benjamin as our top WR. If he gets to that point then god help the defenses we face.

      One note on the lab disappearances last year. He was coming of an ACL injury which normally means your first year back isn't as good. Wes Welker is a guy I remember that had the same injury and came back a bit earlier and wasn't the same after a 10 month rehab. 40 less catches and 500 less yards. KB had 13 months but you could see how well he started and I think he was going too hard too soon. He looked dominant his first two weeks against Denver and SF. After the season Proehl admitted they thought he was ready too soon and that the strength coach who said he wasn't ready was right.

      I'm expecting big things out of KB this year and I'm on his bandwagon already and I really hope the memes have him motivated with a huge chip on his shoulder. I also hope that our new weapons open things up compared to last year where defenses knew we weren't throwing it to our WR3, TE2 and RB. Cover Olsen, KB and Ginn and blitz the rest. Cam didn't stand a chance. I think we may have opened up our WR3 and RB now.

    • To each his own. I think they are supremely flavorful and delicious. Romaine, raw spinach leaves, and cabbage (shredded or in the form of slaw) are pretty much "accepted" ways to eat, but my wife and I (and sometimes my teen son) have just taken it a step further. And let's not talk about all the delicious red, yellow and green peppers. Yummy! Not saying this is you, but sometimes you just have to reprogram your mind and your taste buds. Each veggie and fruit has a flavor and aroma all its own. We destroy so much of the natural flavor and aroma during the cooking process. BTW, nutritionally, blending is superior to juicing.
