You almost NEVER draft for fit. The only time this happens is if there are only marginal differences in draft grades. That is it. Period. To think you leave a significantly better player based on grade on the board is complete and utter nonsense.
I suppose you think you are an authority on this now from watching 32 years of the Timberwolves doing just that?
Or maybe you think teams constantly in the playoffs that already have corrrectly built teams are who you are copying. But they would already have shooters, defenders, rim protectors, playmakers. So they can draft absolutely any best player available and stick them on the bench to learn or immediately trade them away. But when your actual franchise starters only include one, ONE single pro level shooter it is high time you search for that proven SHOOTER which means drafting for fit. That's what should have happened in the Culver draft. 100% that is what should have happened. In my opinion you are wrong sir. Things don't get more wrong.
Literally every team does what I said, so spare me.
Maybe you should read what I explained for you so you might for once in your life understand why and when other teams can do that.
Take five minutes after reading it and imagine how often the Timberwolves ever have been correctly structured with all necessary skills on board like any of the playoff teams of this league every year to be able to sit back and pluck BPAs onto their already revved up rosters.
Suns drafted Cam Johnson and Klomp just claimed everyone he trusts claimed he was a 24th region pick reached at 11. So obviously the Suns break your Literally every
claim. No need to find the annual examples for you when you've went out of your way to claim Literally Every Team
and that's about as true as your previous claims.
The other excuse I often here is that "the team's talent is bare so you just draft BPA no matter what". Well, if you had the #1 and the best player is a center, and your teams only star player is a Center...worse, the only player you want to keep on your team at all is your star Center...do you take the BPA if no one will trade down a slot or two with you? If you did, you have two Centers. One star, one developing center on 18 minutes a game. Then four gaping starting holes still and a bench of shat to follow. Great job BPA specialists. You know what that wins you? Another trip to the lotto...forever.
Now, if you had a star center and nothing else, and you happened to draft a Ball and he instantly shows you what LaMello is showing this year, well...now you have TWO players. Now at trade deadlines you can trade future picks and fillers and get yourself a third player. Now you've got three players, only two have large contracts and the new rook playing out of his head is on a nice cheap contract. But it's just not that easy when you've already committed to two Max deals and just signed a new good SG, just signed a PF. At this point you've already started building something that you should committ to unless there is an ACTUAL LEBRON staring you in the face at the draft that might be worth blowing things up for.
