For the Knicks, Doncic.

In general, Ayton/Doncic/Bagley

I have Porter and Young a level below the above 3

I get it we have Frank. But if you don't see Curry/Nash in Young then you should foh, not me. Draft the best player, not fit. Ask the Portland Traiblazers about that.

Curry is 6'3. Nash is 6'3.

Young is 5'11. And I like Trae a lot. It's just he's going to be so bad on defense I wouldn't take him until pick 7-10. It's pretty much how willing you are to sacrifice defense with your pick.

To be fair what Trae Young is doing as a freshmen point guard really hasn't been seen in quite some time... I understand that he comes with a lot of physical limitations, but I'd be lying if I wasn't really intrigued with him. Obviously I wouldn't take him with the first, but the season that Young is having is quite impressive. Would it really be far fetched to call him a better passing Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf?

Young ISN'T the best player. It has nothing to do with Frank. If you see Curry/Nash in young, then you need to get your eyes checked. He's just as much Jimmer, if not more Jimmer, than Curry/Nash. Lou Williams with better passing, maybe. Young's shot IQ is atrocious, his defense is atrocious, his frame is going to be HORRIBLE for putting on weight (those shoulders might eventually become pebbles, but that's it), etc.

He's absolutely NOT in the first tier with Bagley or Doncic. Stop posting.

No he's not. Go watch a game and look how small he is on the court. He's lying about his height bc it's college. Wait until the combine.

:lol: Taking a page out of Phil's handbook? A better passing Abdul-Rauf isn't first overall material. I'm intrigued in the sense that he can shoot well and pass, but then I look at the negatives and I'm put off by him - defense, shot IQ, frame, lack of elite burst, IMO lack of ability to get a shot off against NBA athletes, etc. I really don't think he'll end up being more than a Lou Williams with better vision. We'll see at the end of the year I guess, as this stuff is fluid...but first overall? Absolutely not. That's my main issue with what he said.

I was the one who wanted KP the year BEFORE we drafted him and was watching him play the year BEFORE we drafted him. I started the KP bandwagon and was vehemently against Winslow and everyone will back up that claim. :lol: You really have no idea what you're talking about.

I don't see Trae in Jimmer. Jimmer had no IQ and a loose handle. Jimmy pretty much just wanted to shoot and couldn't do much else. Trae got a lot of skill as a passer and with the rock. However, he obviously has serious physical limitations that will cut his potential. But I can see him being an elite 6th man or quality PG ala an Isaiah Thomas, except with a different type of scoring skillset. It's pretty much are you cool drafting a PG that is going to be an atrocious defender but really good on one end.

How many euro guards besides Dragic who never was an all star have done anything in the nba?
