Assuming Frank develops, KP shows he can be a #1 (or at least a #2), Doncic comes in and performs like how we know he can, Dotson / THJr play well, WHG progresses, etc. I can see us making the 7-8 seed next year. I can't see us getting a top 5 pick unless we get lucky in the lottery.



Maybe. It takes time for youth to learn how to win games, but maybe KP takes the superstar leap we all hope.

Are you saying you can't see top 5 this year (2018)?


Nono, this year I see us absolutely getting top 5 and getting Doncic. I meant 2018-2019 I can't see us tanking with the progression of our guys and Horny being gone.


In 2019 there is another Luka and a athlete freak with range and great defense on the 8-14 range (if he dont climb it up from being on a bigger spotlight in the upcoming two seasons of the Spanish and the Euro leagues)

Yeah... thats quite a possibility though... But I dont know if thats better for him than playing in a major league!!

Depends on the coach actually... Kevin Ollie, Tom Izzo or any knowledgable coach (not just a good recruiter) would help him a lot i his transition to the NBA league...

We're definitely top 5 draft pick this year with no question and the franchise needs it.

The only way we're not top 5 is if KP or some other guy decides to turn into superman and win games we shouldn't be winning.

If healthy, Joel Embiid is the best player in the NBA.

That BOS team is clicking on all cylinders. 60 wins seems likely as long as they're all healthy.

Impressive... Not rusty and out of rhythm at all despite playing so little in the last 2-3 years

DSJr looked active on defense in the first quarter.

Dozier looks good on both ends of the court. I said countless times we should find a way to get him as a 3/D guy.

This passing by Teodosic is just so beautiful to watch. Always hitting guys in rhythm. Passes the defense aren't even expecting.

Might be a top 3 passer in the league right now.
