I'm going to be straight up with you guys, if we don't draft a Center I'm going to flip the fug out.

 

Why reach for a Center this year?  The talent level sucks.

 

Fact is, Bismack Biyombo is a true center.  Undersized, but he's NOT a PF.  We need to try and get a big man through FA and take an OFFENSIVE player in this draft.  Anthony Bennett or Ben McLemore are the 2 best.

The spurs had a true center and arguably one of the best to ever play and they lost so?

 

That team was playing against Lebron James.  Both of your arguments contain an anomaly.

Here is what I see happening... pretty confident about it.

 

If Ben McLemore goes 1, 2, or 3... we take Anthony Bennett.

 

If Ben McLemore is on the board when we pick at #4... we take McLemore.

 

Bennett is not really being discussed as our pick and a lot of people have him slipping now because he's not really a "fit" anywhere.

You cannot be a 6'9 center in the NBA and on top of that you want to put a 6'6 Anthony Bennett next to him? 

 

That's not happening.

I wouldn't call Bizmack a true center.  He's more of a defensive PF much like Ibaka, IMO.  He needs a scorer to play with down low.

I bet Zeller as a rookie will be better than Adams at any point in his entire career.

Adams is super raw, the only thing he will be even remotely good at his first year in the NBA is rebounding.

Not entirely true.  He is 6'9" yes, but he has an amazing 7'6" wingspan which is longer than Len OR Noel, by 3 inches or more.  He also has the weight.  I wouldn't call him a true-center like others have, but he can definitely play center if he had too, and be much better at it than guys like Bosh, etc.
