also

frank
hardaway
bridges

would be cringeworthy as hell to watch in half court sets i dont think not one of these guys can create an efficient shot off the dribble or put any type of meaningful pressure on the defense with the ball in their hand out on the perimeter. thats to much of an inconsistent lineup unless franky proves to be further ahead than we may expect.

I did not know you was into URL like that. She only battles like once a year now. She dont even do QOTR no more. Ms Hustle is the one who really can spit. JAz Music is not all that outside of battle rap.

id move bridges to pf where he is at his best and kp to center where he belongs.


He's 6'6....not good for an NBA 4


Why not? he's built like a truck and pulls down boards. In todays NBA i think he'll do just fine at power forward the NBA is small ball. i think he can play both pf/sf he's a tweener but looks more effective at power forward

draymond aint but 6'7
faried aint but 6'7


Ive seen him at PF and am sure we'll see those lineups but Im sticking with him at the 3. He can spread the floor and could be a plus rebounder at that position. Id rather keep KP where he is unless we find a stretch 4 who himself was long. For instance I might've done that for Jonathan Isaac and there may be guys in this draft Id do that for but if Im going for Bridges hes just not big enough...... even if the nba is changing, at least not full time. You're looking at it, Im sure that hed be fast and athletic for the position. If anything Id like to see Bridges spend his pre draft getting even more cut up for the SF spot ao he can better guard wings

Knox is okay. Don't want him. He has a lot of work to do. He's a 4 in a 3s body.

Knox II is a SF and when it is all said and done he will surprise a lot of you. If he is on the board wherever our pick lands you take him and run!!!

Do not judge him by DX's evaluation of him. They judge him harshly. They are of the opinion that he should be content to be a "4" while he see's himself as a "3" and is developing his perimeter skills accordingly (as he should).

Dude is a tall "3" in the mold of KD, Giannis, etc. and he may still be growing as he only just turned 18.

Like I said, take the DX analysis with a grain of salt. Watch him with your own eyes and judge him relative to his peers, particularly those rated above him.

Watch the McDonald's All American game in full where he was second highest scorer after Porter. If we cannot get Doncic or Porter then Knox is my pick.

Knox 3pt shot and handle is already way ahead of what scouts are giving him credit for. He is committed to Kentucky and coach Cal is on record as saying he is playing him at SG/SF all season. And he can indeed defend those positions. He has no major holes in his game.
