Man, you guys are wrong about the Lakers and drafting Wiseman :lol: . YOU DRAFT FOR BEST PLAYER. You trade for what you need. Wiseman is no answer. He's poo poo. I may even keep LaMelo if the Lakers have LeBron at PG. Definitely, Anthony Edwards is a keeper. He should be able to develop his 3-pt shot. He's the most talented player. Still way early for him.

Wiseman is the BPA though? His floor is higher than Edwards and Ball and his ceiling is super high even if people cannot see it

This series is looking like a sweep. So disappointing. If Bam and Dragic (and Butler) did not get injured in the first game we would have had a more competitive series. Lakers probably still win it, but without those players available and at least at 80-90%, the Heat cannot hang. Well, let's see if they can pull out at least one W. Can't stand the Lakers, add Lebron and I despise them... lol

DEPTH IS VERY IMPORTANT. Draft Bane+Wiseman. MLE JaMychal Green. TPE Rudy Gay. Min Dj Augustine/Austine Rivers/Frank Jackson/Reggie Jackson/MCW(last choice)

You have no idea what sort of player James Wiseman will be, let alone writing him off already as "poo poo". Stop acting like some expert that knows more than all, including people that are actually employed in the business and are close with the teams and players.

Yeah I'm down on Edwards as well. I don't get any fire from that guy when watching, and listening to him. The biggest mistake with a guy like him is drafting him early from a financial point of view. He'll be comfortable straight away from the huge entry deal the kids get these days, and he won't have to fight to earn a big payday.

Sheesh. Get the wax out of you ears or eyeballs. I just told you what type of player he will be. Poo poo. And I've been pointing out which players belong in the top 3. Wiseman has fallen because no one really knows about him. It's the Woj interview and that's it. I don't want my C who cries and makes up excuses in his first major interview.

Image

This is the #2 pick we are discussing about, so Wiseman needs to be tossed out of the store.

Instead, it's fans like you who judge him on 3 games and ignore he quit on his coach and team. People who did the best for him to get where he was. It was very, very, very selfish thing to do and James Wiseman is being an **** about it. All you see is the hole in the middle on the Warriors. That can be fixed by trades or FA. People actually employed in the business and on the Warriors agree with me.

I already said too much on this already. We can celebrate after the Warriors pick either Anthony Edwards, LaMelo Ball, Deni Avdija, or trade down and not draft Wiseman.

Again, you have literally no idea what type of player James Wiseman will be. Claiming that you do, is making you look like a plonker. You're becoming a joke account, so calm down on the know it all type posting, because you don 't know anything, you're just a fan.

That wasn't the discussion. It was about getting Wiseman to match up against the Lakers or a big team.

You want to pick Wiseman at #2 to have a big to do that :crazy: ? For one, I know he's not ready to play right away. Moreover, the analysts don't think he'll do well guarding the perimeter. He may not be an interior defensive player because he didn't clog the paint. He is more a help defender. He can block shots, but playing defense is more than that. I think I have a great idea of how Wiseman will rebound and play defense at the next level. It's just my opinion that he's poo poo for that.

In fact, I'll go further. I don't think the Warriors will pick Wiseman at #2. I'm also think they won't pick Wiseman even if they trade down and he's there at < #8 pick. I pretty sure the Warriors will pick Anthony Edwards, LaMelo Ball, or Deni Advija with their #2 pick for now. It's not about matching up against the Lakers or quality big teams with the draft and drafting for need. I'm not saying matching up against the Lakers and the quality big teams aren't important. I don't think the Warriors want to be a team like the Rockets, but there are others ways to fill a need.

Things may change as the combine and interviews are going on now and what news come out and what other teams may or may not do. What won't change is Warriors picking Wiseman at #2 like Wiseman fans think and want. The Warriors will look for the BPA first and if the #2 pick matches what they want/need, then all the better. It's not the Gary St. Jean, Chris Mullin, and Larry Riley doing the drafting now.

Watching Iguodala do all the little things for the Heat, doing a little bit of basically everything, makes me miss him so much. I'm happy for him but I hope he messes up Pat's hair during the trophy celebration and he calls Bob to see if he'll take him into the TPE to get rid of him asap.
