I'll give my personal guarantee that Phil won't draft Tatum Just like I guaranteed he wasn't going to draft Mudiay.

Best case scenario Tatum plays his way into a top 3 selection.

What do you think about promising young guard/wing Jonathan Isaac? I believe he plays for Florida I'm not sure if you've previously stated your opinion on him before.

Just compared Westbrook's college numbers to the top guards in this draft and...well...you literally never know what you're going to get. :lol:

I would avoid Monk. Would probably go with Frank


At #7 over Robert Williams?


I have not seen Robert Williams enough to be honest. Intruging player for sure. Not sure he's worthy of a #7 pick either though

I'm taking Monk OR Frank in a HEARTBEAT over any big man in the Lotto of a PG/Wing heavy Draft. Didn't we learn our lesson in 2010?! :-?

Collison was mainly running the point and they had a stacked team so hard to judge Westbrook from his numbers. He was a physical and defensive monster thoough
