Nah man. Wait to the season start. Its way to early. lets enjoy the summer and start draft talk once the College season starts. Makes no sense to talk about most of these cats cause they are off for the summer. It won't be as fun cause there are no games to watch and evaluate. All we have is HS footage which aint schit at the end of the day. Mad dudes have ill Mixtapes and are wack in college.

No but what are we talking about? what they did in HS? I mean come on Fam. There is not much to discuss. This thread won't be that popping. Think about it. During the college season we at least have games every week. We can see them and see what they can do in actual games not mixes. There is nothing to talk about expect the same old HS Mixtapes.It will get tired fast. there won't be NOTHING new on them for the next 3 months. We don't even know who will suck in college cause NONE of them have started yet. We never start draft threads this early. There was a reason why the original draft thread started off as a COLLEGE thread first.

Then Talk Knicks. Take a break bro from the draft. Trust me. The thread this year was drawn out cause it went on so long. You want keep it going all year. :lol:

Most of the players people will talk about is all the cats who have entered as freshman. Not much else to talk about. You want us to talk about Miles bridges all summer?

Listen do you bro, But I will predict there won't be much action cause like I said We won't have nothing new to look at and evaluate. Its HS and thats not a good indicator of who is what. Seventh Woods had the illest mixtape ever and he was BLAH in college. We won't know untill this year who is the truth fam.

If Luka is there when we draft then i think we take him because of his relationship with KP and Willy, and of course his talent

This thread is for people who wanna talk about potential prospects for next years draft. Of course they're not guaranteed to be good. No one knows until college. But there's nothing wrong to talk about them before. There's a lot of prospects I have in mind that I want to share with others and generate discussions about them. Nothing more than that.

Doncic and Bamba are my favorites. Colin Sexton is fun to watch.
