Mikal Bridges is the two-way monster fueling Villanova and moving up NBA draft boards

The Wildcats have a true superstar in veteran wing Mikal Bridges. The NBA is taking notice.

Going to be tough to get him if he really is going in the 7-8 range. Tank rebuild needs to start sooner rather than later if we are going to be in the conversation for any of these elite wings ya'll dreaming about.

Not as much as you'd think

Assuming everyone projected to declare does declare, you're looking at
Doncic, Ayton, Bagley, and Porter guarenteed to go top 5, with Bamba probably being 5th

Then there's Sexton, Knox, Bridges x2, JJJ, and Williams, at least one of whom will be available to take at 11

And that's not even considering Diallo, Troy Brown, Wendell Carter, Trevon Duval, that Musa guy, and Jarred Vanderbilt, who could all reasonably end up picked in the lottery

There's a lot of time before we reach the draft, but there'll be plenty of talent for us if we get into the top 10, really the only dropoff is after 5, everything from then to the end of the lottery looks pretty promising if not superstar level
And as far as real friends, tell all my cousins I love 'em
Even the one that stole the laptop, you dirty motherf*cker

You say its not close but per 40 minutes Hami is averaging 20 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assists. Knox is averaging 19 points, 7 rebounds, and 2 assists. They also have the same PER. Seriously outside of the Kansas game Knox hasn't been that impressive and definitely hasn't been good enough to justify anyone saying he's way better than Hami.

Compare Hami to another athletic freak people were low on before seeing them in the league - JB. I remember people dogging JB during his freshman year but I kept him at #2 on my draft board. Hami is easily better than he was at Cal so far.


I had Jaylen Brown 2 on my board as well, he was also better than Diallo. Brown didn't play on a very talented team, he had nobody to take pressure off him. Diallo benefits so much from having Knox, PJ Washington, Quade Green. Diallo could never lead, he's not that type of player right now. He's a complimentary piece but not a guy you build around. Knox is similar to Jayson Tatum in that he might not put up the best numbers right now (even though the season is still young) but you can clearly see his skills and potential. He's a guy that can do a little bit of everything, he's also bigger and stronger than Diallo.

You must be forgetting Ivan Rabb was a top 5 prospect and he outplayed JB as a freshman on the same team. Cal was supposed to be way better than they were and half the reason they stunk was because JB looked rough.

Say what you want about Diallo benefitting from guys around him but he's the 2nd best player on the team and he's not much worse than the best player on the team. Knox isn't close to Tatum. Knox doesn't go in the lottery in last year's draft. Y'all bugging idk what the hell you saw to compare him to someone that was consensus top 5 in a very strong draft when he's not consensus top 10 in a weak draft.


Is that why they made the NCAA tournament with Jaylen Brown and missed it the following year when he left, while Ivan Rabb regressed without JB?

You're the one who's bugging by trying to compare the two draft classes. Tatum wouldn't be a top 5 consensus pick this year either, not with Bagley, Ayton, Doncic, Porter, Bamba. Markelle Fultz might not even go top 5 this year.
