^that. But also I think Crowley is just going through all the prospects in the lotto. That doesn't imply the bulls are targeting/expecting that player to be there at 7

Yes I saw that. It's just a wish list of prospects. He's done an article for the other positions too

Lavar hasn’t been as annoying for a good min now , I’m still taking LAMELO if we are able . I would be more concerned if he had them goofs garpax in charge

He's actually been relatively quiet for the last couple of years. I'm sure the NBA stage would amp him back up, but I'm not sure it would be a huge issue anymore. Would hope NBA reporters wouldn't be clamoring to interview him nightly.

I agree on Martin Jr., but he's still young enough that I could see a 2 inch spurt being possible. Otherwise I definitely don't see wing skills yet.

I don't have a problem with Nesmith, I'm just not excited about him being a high end starter. I wouldn't be totally shocked, he just seems like a very average prospect. If it came down to it, I'd be way more prone to picking Vassell. I'm probably in the minority, but I still see a high ceiling with him.


Nah, I get it and like Vassell too. Vassell is a much smoother athlete. I've missed on many and been right by going with gut a few times. I love some shooters though.

Wrong -

1) Epke Udoh (thought his reach, athletic ability, and mid range was going to be legit)
2) Dante Exum (thought he was going to be a stud).
3) gorgui deng
4) Taj pick (couldn't stand that pick, but worked out well)
5) Thomas Robinson - thought he was going to be better

Right

1) Steph Curry - thought he was going to be the best of that draft including Griffin.
2) Paul George - thought he was top 2 in that draft. Also, liked Hayward in same draft.
3) Gary Harris
4) Liked Jeff Teague over James Johnson
5) LaVert over Denzel but understand the feet concerns


Udoh had 4man hype coming I feel that he’s be perfect coming in as a 5 so I don’t think you’re necessary wrong there

Exum too many injuries. Would’ve been a stud if he could’ve stayed healthy

Dieng is a per minute monster in the crappiest of situations. Should’ve been a starting C right off the bat.

TRob remember when he had delusions of being a 3? Would probably be a 5 coming out now.


Appreciate it

Dude, you and I are the same. I predicted Steph and PG- I was campaigning to trade for the fifth pick and draft Pg. I also thought Thomas Robinson was going to be a beast. Man was I wrong.

He’s been quiet because Big Baller went belly up and Lonzo won’t fund it.

I wouldn't worry about LaVar at all, but I don't think we'll be lucky enough to be in a position to draft LaMelo. He'll go top 3 for sure, probably first.

Has nothing to do with it. If the Bulls dont draft Lamelo, they are just disregarding talent in favor of character which has been GarPaxs philosophy for yrs.
Based on need, I would be very satisfied with either Ball or Deni.

It’s not that I believe the Bulls would pass on him because of LaVar, I just can’t imagine them dealing with him and not telling someone to make him be quiet.

The good thing about the Ball boys is that they don't seem to be attitude problem guys. It may stem from their games which are about being non-ball dominant PG's.

My draft fantasy.

Promise Lavar as some assistant position for life in return for 3 ball brothers and force lamelo pull out a Kobe stunt he aint gonna play for any other team than the Bulls. Draft Ball at #7 so a top 3 pick falling to 7 is worth it alone.
Get liangelo for free since his father said so and use that peer pressure to get lonzo.
If the two younger brothers are studs at pg, sg liangelo gotta be a stud wing like Tatum someday with his good genes from his father.

Lineup
Ball-rfa extension 15mil
Ball-rookie contract
Ball-free
Superstar FA (Giannis)- 40mil (Lavine, White, Carter, 3 picks, sign and trade)
Lauri- rfa extension 15mil

Fill the bench with quality ringchasers and get eric gordon, harrell,millsap, teague, favors.
I dont need another superstar but I guess guys like cupcake, Butler and Dipo will be begging to join to impersonate the next MJ.

I never thought I would want a Ball on this team, but seeing the improvements Lonzo made and LeMelo is supposedly more talented, I would love to draft Ball. I think the key to Lavar is not letting him get his reign in. If LaMelo was to tell Lavar to stop, he will only be a pesk occassionally. If the Bulls allow for Lavar to be an issue, it will be. The good news is that I have seen LaMelo say in a tweet calling out Lavar when being rumored to Warriors and Lavar said LeMelo needs more free reign to control the ball and LaMelo said to chill.

LaMelo would make our team better with his ball distribution, defensive ability, and bball IQ in my opinion. I think he or Deni would be the best chances of High IQ playmakers in this draft. I am not big on Anthony Edwards and don't know what to think of Obi Toppin. Wiseman, I am very intrigued by, but would want to know his work ethic since he quit pretty early in season. I won't go on about Nesmith as my guy.

This sounds a lot like tampering and while I'm not sure this is against the rules, but I would expect fines and other sanctions. That could lead to an extra 10 years to the rebuild.

Who gets to dribble the ball the most?

I'm sure AK, Reinsdorf and Pax are giving Lavar the keys to the Bulls. :lol:

Why not add one more...we've had his four brothers out there for us the last couple years.
