You really can't factor how a person's demeanor is like to evaluate their talents, well perhaps some do, but they really shouldn't.

Derrick Rose was infamous of showing absolutely no emotions the majority of the time, and at one point he was one of the best players in the league. T-Mac used to have relaxed, don't give a f*** type of demeanor either, until he'd explode past you and dunk all over your grill.


I meant that his casualness spills over to his play on the court, affecting his motor. Rose was different, he was constantly in attack mode - Fultz seems to loaf around quite a bit, like he can't be bothered to go at full speed.

Harden plays most of the time at half speed and as if he doesn't care, but he has the skills and BBIQ to still be effective.

That's insane to me - Fultz is that damn good. I'm assuming the #3 that BOS takes is Josh Jackson - nice player, not sure if he's ever a future all star. Fultz definitely will be.

Would PHI do something insane like giving up #3 + 2018 Lakers (unprotected) + 2019 Sacramento (unprotected)? Because I'd definitely do THAT, it'd just be nuts.

Fultz, Simmons, Embiid is crazy good. It's a shame Hinkie won't be around to see the process come to fruition; this is all him.

pretty much.

Also we're enamoured with Fultz more than Ball i think.

The offer is ridiculous though. 2 + Randle is too damn high.

Its not like the gap between Fultz and Ball is huge anyway.

76ers' gm is not Billy king as far as I'm concerned. The gap between markelle fultz and Josh Jackson is not worth 2 top 5 picks.

I'm amazed Colangelo wants to even move up, Fultz doesn't strike me as his type of player.

Yeah, I'd be very upset if the Kings' pick is also included.

I heard that that was the initial offer, which Colangelo declined, and then countered with our own future first - which I'm fine with. We'll see, Colangelo could always buckle.

I'm comfortable giving up 3rd and Lakers 1st next season. I don't like 2018 draft in general and specially for Sixers.

It might be… Perhaps Ainge wants two players from the 2018 Ayton-Bamba-Doncic-Porter group. I think he should just take Fultz and not gamble.

You do not give up that many 1st round draft picks for a rookie ...unless the rookie is Kobe or Lebron

I get that but the 2018 draft will be 10 times more talented than this one. It's players at every position, Ayton and Porter are early favorites for 1 and 2 but that could change over the course of the NCAA season.

Yeah the 2018 draft only looks t be 3-4 players deep. Maybe that will change but I would also expect the Lakers to start trending up. So this deal for Boston is very dependent on the Lakers getting lucky in the lottery again.
