Wish we had a big as good as Embiid or Ayton.

We can get one with Wiseman if the Knicks are smart


Knicks have to be both lucky and smart to get Wiseman which is near impossible lol.

That being said I want to give our new FO the benefit of the doubt but we have been burned too many times.

Raptors would help us more, we don't want the Clippers to catch them and have our pick fall further. We need to root for the Nuggets, Jazz, OKC, Boston, and Miami to win. They're all like 2 or 3 games back from the Clips.

Will there ever come a time when Mark Jones doesn't tell the story of Siakam wanting to be a preacher before playing basketball?

You know what I won't be surprised if Cole would have a more successful rookie season than LaMelo. I think his skills are more easily translatable to the NBA and could make All-Rookie First Team.

He could be like the Donovan Mitchell in 2017 while LaMelo could be Fultz or big bro Lonzo (note that I still like Fultz and Lonzo both of which could end up catching Spider).

I had my doubts on Cole but am taking a closer look. I also trust how HEZI looks at guards lol although Cole will not be that playmaking point but more of a scoring guard.

Sixers probably better off falling to 6th and avoid the Bucks until the ECF.

They have played the Celtics well this season. Raps could be a problem for them though.

Lakers better hope someone takes the Raptors out in the East. That's assuming they can get past the Clippers.
