Gabe Vincent and KZ Okpala though :lol: Have to laugh to keep from :cry:


TBF we also got Duncan off the scrap heap, we know how to find gems. Not all of them are gonna pan out, but by and large, us and Toronto would be far and away the best 2 teams when it comes to getting value out of 2nd round/undrafted type prospects. Spurs used to hold that mantle back in the day with their sneaky Euro prospects too, but the game is a lot more global these days.

I like Petrusev too - would be happy if we took a punt on him in the 2nd round, although we may see Yurtseven as a similar level prospect.

What's the consensus with Isaiah Todd? 6'10" PF who looks to have a reasonable shooting stroke.

Looks light and will need to bulk up, but could be worth a flyer in the 2nd round.

You know what - I'm sick of being left out from the draft. This chit needs to stop.

We're using draft picks as a crutch to get out of our mistakes. The draft is a big part of the fun of being a fan of the team, give us something to get excited about damit. Sports isn't just about % of a prospect to succeed, it's about the hope and hype and excitment of picking up someone with potential.

Yeah, as a big fan of the Draft, it does hurt that we're basically a participant every other year. It's an exciting day on the NBA calendar, and it sucks that we're rarely involved.

On the flip side though, we've had a lot of success these past 10-12 years. Hard to complain too much. I know what day of the NBA calendar I'd rather be participating in.

But this is another reason we need to stop giving away picks long term. We're good at this
