How can someone even claim Doncic as overrated with his level of accomplishments? Lol :dontknow:

Can Porter even be “rated” at this point in his career? Didn’t even really play at the college level.

We haven’t played a single game yet. Every player is overrated by some and underrated by others. It is impossible not to be vested in the NBA and not have an opinion on the top draftees. It might be wise to avoid sharing the opinions about others in your draft class but it is what it is. Nothing wrong about it.

Bamba didnt make the list either and at least he played and expects to play this year. And why did the writer call Porter "Denver guard"

Porter is facing two years of not playing competitive basketball before stepping to nba .
His bust potential is thrugh the roof.
2018 draft:
Dončić will be really good.
Bamba will suprise people.

I’m still of the belief that a fully healthy MPjr with no loss of athletic talent is a better prospect than Doncic.

I just don’t believe that player exists anymore. It’s sad and understandable that he is frustrated.

At 6, I like the Bamba pick. I’m thrilled for our future with him. But the key word is “future.” ROY is an award we should forget about his season.

Because they know our organization doesn't play its high lottery picks in their rookie seasons.

:lol:

I mean, I guess every single one of those guys are projected to play more minutes, but damn. It is frustrating to be the only team that always takes it SUPER slow. The fact that some people argue that we give all the keys to our young players surprises me.. must be watching a different team.

I was thinking this as well, but then it occured to me that all the kid did was *like* someone else's post. And frankly, at the moment, all any of the rookie class has going for it is hype. Nobody has done anything yet. We've seen an awfully lot of Euro stars wash out.

Maybe he'll be a star - personally I would have loved if we could have grabbed him somehow - but he could be ""just" a solid bench player.

Quote from the article:

MVP of Euroleague can’t be overrated. A injured player who has not played 5 college games can be overrated. #Facts


That's Euro players overreacting right there. MVP is mildly impressive, but still means nothing from an NBA perspective. Most Euro players couldn't make a G-League team, so saying MVP "can't be overrated" is just as ridiculous IMHO. The list of past MVP's ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EuroLeague_MVP#Winners ) is a veritable "who's who" of non-impactful players, only one of whom had much of an impact in the NBA.
