Obviously the need is PG but Yek is a sure thing IMO in the Montrezl Harrell/Richaun Holmes mold. Cole could be a waste of a pick.

Yek.

haven't decided yet. We can do a full day (i mean whats the rush?)

or if we get enough of a separation maybe we call call it. We know like 40-50 people vote a day so if someone get to 20-25 maybe we call it?

Put a time limit on it like midnight. Some people go on the board at different times during the day. We can get all the votes in if we keep it till midnight


the least amount I can do is 1 day. can't end it at midnight.

So I will just do 1 day like all the other threads. That way we wont be starting a new thread at midnight anyway. We will just start it at 11am when every poll has been starting anyway.

You don't burn a lotto pick on a guy like Onyeka

Players like him can be found later in the draft. Energy bigs with limited skills are not hard to find and you can get them for cheap

How about this also determines pick 8? Winner gets 7, loser gets 8?

And inefficient volume shooting guards are hard to find in the NBA? See I can do the same thing. Let's be fair here. There's a reason Okongwu is near the top of most mocks while Anthony is middle of the pack. I'm guessing that it's because most feel he's more than just a "energy big with limited skills".

I wouldn't be opposed to that either. Depends on how people feel. However that could in theory change the vot because if say OO wins and now those 14 votes that went to OO go to say Obi or Kira now...then Anthony wouldn't win that vote either.

Or vice versa maybe all the cole anthony votes go to Obi at that point?

Cole Vs Kira would be pretty interesting and a close one imo

I only say keep them at 7 and 8 because nobody else was remotely close to these two in the original poll

Then again we have 2 months to kill

Obi is still available at 7?

See, this is what I was talking about with him. He's become underrated here.

I mean I don't know many 6'9 + 7 foot wingspan guys in the NBA that can protect the rim at a high level and also guard in switchable situations 1-5 because of there quick feet to guard on the perimer.

Thats just me...

I think it should be a new poll personally...most likely the other guy wins, but you never know where the votes will go. We have plenty of time anyway.

Cole struggled a little too much for me to get behind him with a high pick. Can always scoop up scoring G later.

We're a bottom 5 team right now in outside scoring, give me a guard who can score, has the mamba like mentality to take over at any given moment, and isn't afraid to get hit in the paint to go with a 4 who can spread the floor and we're in business.

Whoever needs him can take him. Knicks don't need him and have no business wasting their only lotto pick on him.

What skills does he have?

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

That's ok, we got 2 rounds to go. We're not stopping this at the end of round 1. We're going both rounds right? That's 53 more days. :D
