DRAFT SPECULATION/NEWS THREAD

I hated that we picked him so im not giving him anything until he proves it to me

I guess wiggins shouldn't be a top 5 pick this year then. He hasn't proven the hype of being one of the best prospects since lebron.

yeah because all the elite teams like the Lakers, Spurs, Heat etc used the tanking method to build their championship teams.  There is no such thing as a sure bet with anyone that is drafted.  Tanking season after season to try and obtain the best college player is dumb.  Winning starts with a mindset, not the players.  You can win in this league with crappy players as long as you are getting the most out of those players and as long as those players have a winning mentality.  Free Agents did not want to play in charlotte because of the coaching staff.  Charlotte has one of the best staffs in the league now and which was a major contributor to why Al Jefferson signed here.  There will be other free agent signings come next year.  If charlotte wants Wiggens etc, the best way without sacrificing games would be to trade picks, and wouldnt you know it, charlotte has a stockpile of them over the next few years.

 

The Spurs drafted David Robinson and Tim Duncan whom were both no1 overall pick. After that, they struck gold with Parker, Manu, and recently Leonard. Dont forget to mention that they have the best HC in the game.

 

Tell me when was the last time the Lakers had to think about tanking. Thats a big market franchise who all they do is will draw big name free agents no matter what, year in and year out.

 

and dont even compare us to the Heat.

 

and this statement is ridiculous: "You can win in this league with crappy players as long as you are getting the most out of those players and as long as those players have a winning mentality." You sure can every now and then pull an upset over the Miami Heat with crappy players, but you sure wont get the no8 seed with crappy players.

Everybody impresses in high school. College and even nba are a whole new ball game. That's why it takes time for guys to adjust and get comfortable.

Bottom line is that it's gonna take time for him to reach his potential at any level... Just like zeller.

I'm starting to feel more love for Dante Exum. The kid looks like a baller and I think it's a superstar in the making. Both Smart and Exum are neck and neck as the top PG in next year draft.

 

One thing I didnt know until now is that Dante Exum's parents are both Americans. Dante's father is Cecil Exum who played along Michael Jordan on the 1982 Championship team for UNC. Cecil moved to Australia to play for the NBL.

We'll considering he's hyped up the be the best draft pick since lebron and the fact that he will be starting he better be. Zeller was the 4th pick in a terrible draft. Wiggins could be the 1st pick in a loaded draft. But don't act like it won't take time for him to adjust Bc it will.
