He was really good tonight!

Good enough that i'm back on board.

Still unlikely that we win a game without Towns but still.


He really took over that 2nd Q.. and I dont think it was really his doing, but he really **** up my DFS play of Jamal Murray (guess lightning really wont strike twice)

Still if I was to pick anyone off your roster right now excluding KAT, gimme that Vanderbilt kid. Reminds me of JTA, just a lot of hustle, scrap, and defense. Yall should hang onto him

Will someday else please notice that Anthony Edwards never goes for a rebound..I’m the only one who has ever paid attention ..he once went 2 1/2 games in college without one until a ball finally fell in his lap.

The dude is Uber athletic and built like a brick sh*thouse...unbelievable that nobody has ever commented on it besides me.. how do bums like him and Michael Olowokandi go #1 overall ?

I haven’t watched him play much but that’s always been a big knock on Klay by people who don’t watch. Sometimes what coaches ask for don’t help with that much. Klay guards perimeter players and shoots 3s. Usually not a lot of boards out there.

No idea if that applies to Edwards though.

You should try watching games ..I’ll reply only because you kind of called me out despite having no clue what you’re talking about

Edwards never moves without the ball, very lazy defender, never ever goes for a rebound, shoots poorly from the perimeter.. but extremely athletic and strong..

He’s nothing at all like Klay in any way..and unlike Klay, he absolutely should be a top SG rebounder

At the risk of getting in the midst of it, in reading Commodor’s comment, I don’t think he was talking about you.

He was simply saying that the coaching scheme can sometimes account for a player not getting rebounds, as is the case with Klay, but that he didn’t know if it applies with Edwards. It’s easy for people to make a conclusion by looking at a box score rather than the game, and was just using Klay/rebounds as an example. You had never talked about Klay, so I’m pretty certain it was a general comment rather than directed at you.

I watched 3.5 quarters of that game and entirely forgot they drafted a player with the #1 pick

Joker took over in the 2nd half.

I just had to throw $100 on him (@$34) last week for MVP. If the Nuggets have a decent record he is a shoe in imo. Looks the fittest he has ever been and just killing it. Down to $12 now.

Not sure what I will buy.

Just watched some highlights from the first picks of 2021 and nobody seems impressive enough for me.
I have the feeling that Lamelo, Wiseman and Edwards seemed more impressive in their highlights comparing to the first picks of 2021(Suggs seems good ok).
I wonder if it would be a good choice to trade the pick for Okongwu plus something from Atlanta.
I will watch the 2021 class again during the season, maybe I am wrong. I didn't pay much attention

“Edwards seemed impressive” demonstrates just how useless highlight videos can be

I like this idea and line of thinking. Mobley is the only guy that excites me in the 2021 class. The other prospects are good but they are years away from making a difference imho. Okongwu wouldn't be my first choice though, I'd see if we can pry Okoro or Haliburton first.

You guys would not get the GM job. There are guys definitely better than Edwards and Ball.

The fact that you aren’t valuing Mobley tells me all I need to know about your evaluations. And both Cade and Suggs will help teams immediately. Suggs is shooting something like 46% from 3 as well as being a great point guard.

Just sit back and wait for the real evaluators to tell you who we should pick once we know where the picks lie

Suggs i like. Don't know about the Jason Kidd comps I see. His wingspan scares me at the NBA level. It probably makes him a good shooter but his lack of wingspan is going to hurt on defense. I like him more than Cade tho

I love Cade, especially for the Warriors... a big point guard, who can shoot and score with high IQ... Suggs is good as well... Mobley should be a stud... I think Cade and Mobley go 1 and 2, so we wont be getting either one of those players unless we totally stink ourselves and get a top-2 pick again.

So is it technically achievable for the Warriors to be a six seed and keep their pick, win the title, and then get the #1 and #4 picks in the lottery?

All the mocks I see have the guys you mentioned going in the top 3. Mobley is the only one that may be available at 4. I’ll take this years 4-11 guys over next years any day of the week. :nod:

No.

The Minnesota pick is top-3 protected, so we can’t get the #1 pick from them...... thus, the #4 pick would have to be the Minnesota pick.

The only way we could get the #1 pick is if we’re in the lottery, meaning we weren’t the 6th seed.

Now, I’m not sure exactly where the cut-off is for the lottery anymore, considering that the #9 and #10 teams in each conference now have an opportunity to get into the playoffs. If #9 and #10 still end up in the lottery even if they win play-in games and make it to the playoffs (does anybody know for sure?), then theoretically a team could end up the #9 (or #10), play into the playoffs, with the title, and end up with the #1 pick if they get insanely lucky in the lottery. But it couldn’t happen with a #6 seed, because that team absolutely misses the lottery.
