DRAFT SPECULATION/NEWS THREAD

608 posts in this topic

It's not because he's white. It's because he's unathletic and his father ran his entire offense through him for his college career. It's already been reported that he hasn't impressed in workouts

 

Did you watch him in college?  This is a serious question.

If Doug is drafted he replaces Hendo as most hated on the team

Nah, there's still going to be homers calling him as a future All Star.

Or he turns into a solid starter for us, spaces the floor, helps create room for Big Al, displays underrated athleticism, plays good team defense, and shows why he was a 3x All-American in college.

Nah, he's white. IT'LL NEVER HAPPEN.

Yes! It's bc he's white. I'm not going to bull poo and act like I'm not biased.

Homers because we root for the players on our own team?  Uhhh....yeah.  That's kind of the point.  Why would I want to openly root for players on my team to fail?  So I can come on here and say, "I'M SMARTER THAN CHO I SAID NOT TO DRAFT HIM!!!!"

 

It's really kind of astonishing to me that fans would "hate" a guy on their team who hasn't even played a game yet.  I think McGary is a dumb pick at 24, but I'd pull for him like hell once we drafted him.  Different mindsets, I guess.

Maybe others have said they would root against him, but I haven't. Any guy we draft, whether I like it or not, i'm going to root for them until they prove that they suck.

Saw on Twitter where Elfrid Payton told a reporter that two realistic landing spots he's hearing for himself are Los Angeles at 7 and Charlotte at 9.  That would surprise me, although I do think Payton will be good.  I'd wonder if they planned on playing him with Kemba, or trading Kemba?  I can't imagine they'd draft him at 9 to back up Kemba for a few years, although I guess that's always a possibility.

Walterfotball has Payton at no9 too. If you guys really believe what Clifford said about "size" then it's not such a dumb idea. Payton is much bigger than Kemba and has a higher ceiling. Probably already a better floor generator than Kemba.

I would not rule out Payton a no9 and a Kemba trade. A lot of teams could use Kemba; Houston, Toronto, Chicago, and even Miami. NYK is also a team that is in big need of a PG.

However, they have no pick in the whole draft. But, theres rumors that they want to move Iman Shumpert for a late 1st in hope of Ennis or Hairston. I would straight up give Kemba for Shumpert if we take Payton at 9. That's my opinion.

If it's coming down between McDermott and Stauskas, Stauskas has more to offer.  He has decent ball handling skills and some think he's a more natural shooter than Doug.  I'd like to see Stauskas get stronger, put on some more muscle.  Then he would be unstoppable.

McDermott just seems like a tweener to me.  That is fine in college, but NBA is a new world.

 

4-3 DE's do well in college at 240 LBS, not so much in the pros.
