Would hate to be stuck with that dude on our team.
In Hindsight Porzingis was the one to go with.
In real hindsight Booker was, but that would have been an super mega ultra reach at the time.
Out of the top 4 picks from 2015, only one remains with their team, the other 3 were traded. Of the 3 teams that traded their 2015 top 4 pick, all 3 have gotten better since. We can thank Thibs for making that last tidbit work out.
Porzingis wouldn't have been a better pick, I'm not even sure Booker would have been a better pick. Towns isn't the problem, it's just about everything else that's the problem.
Towns himself isn’t the problem. It’s the thinking of many, that he is someone you build around. He’s not. He’s someone you put around someone better. He is just not strong enough physically or mentally to be the center of a build.
I’m sorry to all the Towns fans who thinks he’s the shiznit, but he’s just not. Maybe I’m old, but players like KG are rare, so let’s pick someone else. Rasheed Wallace, not a person you build around, yet superior to Towns in almost every way, defense, hustle, intensity, physicality, and not a bad shooter either.
So if a player, that is superior (in most ways, not all) to Towns isn’t even worth building around, wtf makes people think Towns is going to be some savior?
The Suns and Jazz are a prime example of what is required for winning. Elite guard play and good to great interior defense and keep them honest interior offense.
Karl only provides 1 thing offense. And even that is suspect at time. Remember when Love was raining 3s here? Love didn’t drop off because of injuries when he went to the Cavs, he dropped off because he wasn’t chucking on a losing team. Same thing would happen to KAT on a team that’s seriously competing, he would be relegated to third option at best.
So now this team has DLo NOd and KAT and and somehow without playing and defense on the perimeter or the interior we are supposed to build around that.
This team need to be blown up. I can’t wait for new ownership.
