Randle had 20 points and 14 rebounds tonight, he is a Beast.


Admitted I haven't watched much Randle but it seems to me the reason he is so dominant is because he just out muscles people which won't work as well in the nba. Does he have an actual polished offensive game or he is just straight brute force? Also he doesn't look that tall to me maybe 6'8'' is he taller than that and if not is he a Blake level athlete to make up for being short(by NBA pf standards)?

He is 6'9 248 with a  6'11 wingspan, I don't think he is undersized at all, I am not sure about his jump shot but he is good at ft's so I could see him developing one.

Excluding the top guys,

 

Here's my big board:

 

(1) Noah Vonleh

(2) Zach LaVine

(3) Kyle Anderson

 

 

I wish we can have all three!

I still like Noah Vonleh a lot. He's a bit raw, but played very well in the first half vs. MSU last night: 13pts 13rebs.

 

He's built very similar to Chris Bosh and I really see some similarities in his game to Bosh.

Such a stacked draft if everyone comes out. 3 firsts would be great. Now to secure a top 5 pick. Imagine getting #1 pick in this draft...damn. I bet we win just enough to miss out on the top tier players by picking 8 or later.

It looks like we are going to make the playoffs, if Detroit goes on a slide we may only have the late first from Portland..

Listen to yourselves....lol. 

 

I want to win.  We need to win.  If we're trying to put ourselves in a situation where we can attract FA's it helps to be good going into the rebrand season.  We'll still have opportunities to draft some good players.  Right now Al Jefferson is playing at an all star level and our team is showing growth.  Why should we stunt their growth and hurt their futures just to place our faith blindly into a couple of rookies?  College ball is full of paper lions.

 

The best way to build a team is through steady progression.  The teams that are successful are teams that have been together and have developed cohesiveness.  Theoretically if we tanked this year, and drafted several high draft picks it would still take a couple of years for them to develop.  It's not like we tank and we're in the finals next year.  I don't feel like waiting around 3 to 4 years before we're any good.  Life is short, time's not guaranteed.

The biggest thing is out of the top 10 picks in the last 10 drafts how many are actually superstar game changing type players maybe 2 or 3 in the top 10 every year or heck sometimes just 1 . We have no luck in the lottery if were gonna hit on a guy it needs to be the 10 -15  guy and have him pan out.

If we keep winning, is there a chance that Lebron or Melo will come here?
