    Best value pick in the draft so far.
    I would have taken Luka earlier. Definitely before Rudy, Durant, and Curry. Maybe Curry is a better player, but Luka could be a starting 1-3 while Curry is only a PG and there are a lot of good replacements available.

    Other thoughts so far:
    1) Rudy was taken way to early lol
    2) Durant was taken to early. This will be his first year coming back from an Achilles tear (AKA the worst injury a basketball player can have). Durant is not going to have the athleticism, especially laterally, that he did before. His best case scenario might be similar to 2014 Carmelo (volume scorer on decent efficiency but a defensive liability)

    Why not? It is not as if anyone is going to forget about players. Makes the draft more interesting if you can actually discuss strategy or opinion as it takes place (this is why there is coverage of the actual draft). But... if that is the consensus then I will check out of the thread.

    @checkbookdoc please don’t talk about or mention players not yet drafted. That’s a big faux pas in these draft threads. Talk all you want about players drafted. Thanks.

    The thread has spoken. I will avoid the thread until draft is complete. My apologies (although I still think it is dumb, you guys participating should be able to make the rules).

    This has been a rule exercised for years. Please don’t name names other than who has already been picked.

    About the right spot for Doncic imo. Durant... I'm iffy on him. Rudy was craziness, but I can appreciate it.

    Feel free to discuss guys already picked check! Halfway into the 1st round not a ton to discuss yet, but that should pick up as the rounds go on.

    Also don't mind folks speaking in generalities (like where you mentioned pairing Curry with a big).

    we had a massive blockbuster trade, there’s plenty of talk to go around about my Genius in pulling this trade off.

    you should be celebrating my greatness bitch:D

    I’m a little iffy on him too, but he’s still a great pick this early. 7-0 with guard skills and his injury isn’t going to slow down that silky shot at all. The one part of his game I worry about slipping is his defense. Will it still be great?

    I was worried you were going to pick someone else. I have no respect for Davis as a basketball player. For a top 5 player in this league he can’t be the man. He doesn’t carry a team. There was always a decent amount of talent on that pels team and think he made the playoffs once or twice.

    He is the cyborg version of Anthony Davis. Twice as strong and fast, laser targeting system so he has range to the opposite baseline. Can run the length of the court in 0.7 seconds.


    But if that intimidates everyone I'll just go with the regular version of Anthony Davis

    Even Favors faired well against Davis.

    Yep, and against gobert and the jazz he scored 30 while blocking a career high 11 shots.

    And going into next season he will be the player who took the DPOY away from gobert.

    No one is denying he’s uber talented. I question his desire and leadership

    So I won't pick again for a long time, so far for me:

    PG - Steph Curry
    SG -
    SF -
    PF -
    C - Anthony Davis
