I kind of want to hang on to the Portland pick, it could end up around 24th, you can find a good player there and develop them.

Imagine a world where we end up in the lottery with our pick and get Detroit's lottery pick...and both end up being in the top 3. I don't think I could take it.

Right now, the Detroit (Charlotte) hold the 10th pick in the draft. If somehow that pick lands in the top 5, who get the pick? Charlotte or Detroit (Top 8 protected).

Detroit pick is top 8 protected, so if they move up into the top three it goes back to them.

Forgot about Detroit's pick having protection. I'd settle for it being the #9 pick. That could get us a damn good player in this draft class if all the top guys come out.

I'm a bigger Julius Randle fan than Parker. Not saying I dislike Parker bc I love the kid a lot. I just feel like Randle is destined for instance impact as a rookie. There are knocks on him like how he uses his left hand too much or has short arms. But, the kid is just a nasty, all around player.

 

If I was a team picking in the top3, I'd easily go with Randle. I believe that he's the safest player in this draft. Easily a 16-18ppg/10rpg player in his rookie season.

JMM shut him down, what do you think NBA PF's are going to do to Randle?

    • Is this dude a real life person or an alt of @GOOGLE JIM BOB COOTER that is a living joke exemplifying the white culture thread? 
    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles (35.6 MPG). Then Big Al had 42 in 2013 (35.0 MPG). Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.    D12 will be a beast this upcoming season!
