Tougher than what Ja Morant faced :o


True, and I loved Ja all year. Think there are some big differences though. Obi is 22 already, where as Ja and Onyeka are/were 19. They had completely different games too. Ja's game combined with athletiscm looked like it would fit in great into the NBA and translate right over. I just don't see that with Obi....and just the way he got abused on defense even against weak teams is pretty concerning to me.

Onyeka, just looks like he has a lot more room to get better. Moves better on the perimeter. Can be a plus on both ends...his jumper may even come around as it doesnt look that bad and he was able to hit free throws.


I won't disparage Yek. He was a guy I was looking at drafting when I still had the Grizzlies pick. Obi seems like a more natural 4 and I have him slightly ahead on my big board. I do think his offense will translate.

I don't think anyone questions that his offense wont translate. He is one of the worst defensive prospects I remember coming out :o

This has to be Cole. Yeah, let's load up on Centers in a guards league :banghead:

Yeah Obi should’ve been off the board a couple picks ago. His upside is too high to pass on

nah I want the best potential asset. We are at a point where I do not believe any of the guards are worthy of a top 10 pick anymore.

Honestly miss seeing Mags take on these upcoming prospects in general. He was all aboard the Trae and JA train and would go to war with people who disagreed. Wonder who he would have liked is all.

Man how could you guys let this happen? We dont need another center unless it was for a trade. He would be pointless because he cant play next to Mitch.
