That NBA team that won with Bosh at center has Lebron James lol.


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

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.

Nope....Duncan is a PF...not a Center

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.

 

so you want either (1) a tweener, or (2) a SG who disappeared in the tournament and then showed up out of shape/over weight at his workouts and looked like crap.....I don't really see either being the pick. 

 

but, I am just guessing

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.

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

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.
