admittedly this is the least I have studied these prospects/watched college basketball in my adult life, but do people not like the kid from Duke anymore, Johnson?

Too many ? Mark's since he opted out.. Resume is lacking..

I'll agree to disagree about Barnes.. I think his size 6'9 , length 7'2 reach  ball handling, defense of all 5 position makes him a can't miss.. At worst you get a taller longer Draymond.. At best you get Scottie Pippen..

I agree on Jones he needs more development and drafting him is a help later not now move.. But the potential is there..

Bouknight I thought the same thing with his similarity with Monk.. But he is taller longer not the athlete or explosiveness but the better defender and ball handlers already...

And I love Moody too.. Right size right skill set would instantly fit..

The Dook and state guys Johnson and funderburk were in clt for workouts…either one of them worth taking?

I'm not a fan of Jalen Johnson - but he is in play for the #11 pick.. to elaborate: he has athleticism and playmaking ability but not a good enough shooter and not sure about his character:


Goodman doubled down on his speculation on Monday night when the news broke, stating that there have been “off-court issues” between Johnson’s camp and the Blue Devils.

Johnson has been coming off the bench since Duke fell to Miami (FL) on February 1, and after playing 24 minutes off the bench in a loss to North Carolina, he played a combined 23 minutes in a loss to Notre Dame and victory over North Carolina State.

Jalen Johnson dealt with the same controversy his senior year of high school when it looked like he would play for powerhouse IMG Academy (Fla.) before never stepping on the floor due to issues with his camp and the coaching staff.

Johnson transferred back to Nicolet (Wis.), where he played as a junior, to complete his senior year.

Jalen Johnson would have been a one-and-done at Duke. There’s no secret about that, but the way in which he is leaving is cowardly.

The Blue Devils are struggling, in the midst of their worst season in nearly three decades, playing in the middle of a pandemic, and he decides to make a business decision and leave now.

A cowardly move.


Funderburk would be lucky to get drafted..

1. Scottie Barnes 

Physicality extreme measurables.. Best defender in the draft..  high floor with high upside.. Won't make it to us..

2. James Bouknight 

Super athletic, super scorer, super fit with Melo..

3. Moses Moody..

Great shooter, all around guard, good fit with Melo...

4. Kia Jones..

Potential, potential,  potential.. Won't be much help his rookie year.. But could develop into a franchise type 4/5..

5. Keon Johnson..

Really good perimeter defender who is the best athlete in this draft.. Needs work on his offensive game..

Great post. Thank you.

I wouldn't take Jalen Johnson at pick 60. Out on him.

Louisiana State v Michigan

No not really he is to similar to Gordon, PJ, Miles and Jaylen.   We have to much of a logjam at the 3-4 position right now.. Same reason I don't really want Jaylen Johnson..
