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?

I think randle is a beast also. Kind of a ball hog though and we already have Al. Parker is a perfect fit for us. But those two are the most nba ready.

Not going to predict his NBA future off one bad game. Randle is one of the best player in college basketball today. His game will translate well into the NBA. Similar built and size to Zach Randolph, so I have no worry about how he'll fair vs. NBA PFs.

Not just one bad game, he's had around 6 really bad ones this season. A few other's that he shot horribly in, but was saved by free throws. 

 

Just watch his games against LSU and UNC where he shot a combine 6-20 from the field, 17 points 10 rebounds and 7 turnovers in those two games. 

 

I highlight those two because those are by far two of his worst performances this season.

I'd say it's more around 4 bad ones. And, Randle does tend to turnover the ball a lot at times, but that was early on in the season. It's been okay recently. The good outweighs the bad with Randle. He's still a damn good player.

 

It's hard to be nitpicking with these kids. They all have positives and negatives. But, there's more positives. I just see Randle and Parker being the two safest propsects in this draft, but Randle more as a player who could impact as a rookie.

I'd pass the fug out. There's about as good a chance Kate Upton stops by my house to have sex.

Exactly. Still could happen if we start tanking this second half and get lucky in the lotto

What would it take to trade into the top 3? Don't say not possible bc there is a price for everything.

^Not possible. If Wiggins, Parker, Randle, and Embid all come out those top picks are gold. We have nothing to trade to get that high. Only chance would be if we end up with 2 top 10 picks, counting ours and Detroit's, plus throwing in Portland's 1st. In a very talented, deep draft I could maybe see a GM pulling the trigger if he is sold on a guy, say Smart, but wouldn't take him in the top 3 picks. I'm not so sure if we end up with 2 top 10 picks I'd trade all 3 firsts for one guy. 

 

Is just one of Parker, Wiggins, or Randle> a combo of Smart, Exum, and PJ?
