I'm excited, but I have no idea who I want. I'm terrified of all the top guys. I just hope we have a front office smart enough to pick the right one.

In GERSON we trust

I REALLY hope we trade down as I do not like any of the top 3 guys...trade down for Okoro or OO.

I hope we can come away with a good starter if we trade down + another pick, but we’ll see.

I want no part of Edwards if we stay at 1, rather go Wiseman or Ball

Feels like a certainty that no matter who we get, a majority of the board will be disappointed.

I feel like whoever gives us 2020 Top10 pick and 2021 lottery pick will get our #1.

Ball plus assets, Poku or Maxey, Mcdaniels or Perry. Get it done Rosas.

1. James "I don't want to come" Wiseman.
2.Lamelo "I can't shoot or defend" Ball.




3. I wish this was the NFL draft (plz listen to my mixtape).
4. Okoro.




Yeah im pretty terrified about who we are picking too

I dont think a single person will be disappointed if we draft Wiseman. Even if majority of us have no idea how he is supposed to fit with KAT.

I’m maybe more excited for the #17 because I’m terrified of the top three guys.

Im excited for that too, if it means Saddiq Bey (or Poku, or if Williams falls). We aren't getting 3 n D qualities in our nr 1 pick, so need to get it on lock for 17.

I dont want Wiseman I am pretty underwhelmed, people
Here are just stuck on his height. In redrafts in upcoming years he won’t even be top 5.

I couldn't attach the link but Lavar Ball just posted on Twitter that the adoption papers were approved and Unfadeable21 is officially a member of the Ball family.

I'm pretty sure I just want Wiseman if we stay at one.
I will vomit if we take Ball and will be mailing that vomit to the front office.
Edwards is super talented and was my guy but has scared a lot of us off with that alleged attitude.
I really hope Poku is still there at #17 and we take him. Youngest dude in the draft and super talented, needs a lot of work but is worth the chance and investment imo.
