Imagine a team with Klay Thompson as its best player.


LOL that Embiid and Simmons are not on that list. The national media has such a vendetta against this sixers. It's disgusting.

I'm also really annoyed with how much everyone is fawning over Nikola Jokic. Yeah he's really good, but he's not better than Embiid, like at all.


We already built a great team around them ... No worries

PS: Zion seems pretty overrated to me.

The Luka thing is hilarious. That Mavericks team is going to be in the lottery again and they have him ranked ahead of guys that have and will compete for titles.

Everyone loves the shiny new toy, if Dallas disappoints again I imagine he’ll fall off pretty quickly much like Towns.

Towns or Siakam?

I'm going to say Towns, with ease.

Are we sure Siakam is going to reach stardom? I'm interested to see how he fairs as a #1 option this year. I'm expecting a heavy regression.

If Doncic once again underwhelms from the free throw line and 3 point line (possible, given his shaky international percentages), I'm willing to jump in on the "Doncic is overrated" narrative. He's already massively overhyped.

I'd take Towns second in that draft.

Still can't get over Klay Thompson.

Do you think Wiggins would be a better player if he was drafted by the Sixers while playing with Brett’s pass is king system?

I think the only way Wiggins would have panned out as a star is if he got slow cooked in Cleveland as a defensive role player that gradually got more offensive touches as he matured and got older.

He probably would have had the same lack of offensive accountability in Philly as he did in Minnesota.

So no, I don't think we would have developed him properly. He'd be a similar pseudo-bust had we drafted him, IMO.

Wiggins needs a pass first PG. He is a good catch and shoot wing. He could fit well with Simmons.

Unfortunately, he doesn't have natural basketball instincts or IQ. Not sure if he ever gets it, but his athleticism is very good.

It should be interesting to see how he plays. He can be a productive player with his play making and defense.

Honestly, doesnt matter unless he can regain his shooting. One of the weirdest stories ever

I agree a very difficult situation. Most don't believe in the yips and think it's only mental, which is false.

He could always have a recurring, uncontrollable hitch, but just like Andre Roberson find other ways to contribute.

I mean are you looking at it through the lens of 2019? 23 ppg his senior year on 60 true shooting in what the ACC what at that point is no joke.

My hesitation with them is how many missed games PG13 and Kawhi will have. I don't think PG13 will be ready for the season opener and Kawhi will be load management per usual. Because of that, I'd be shocked if they're a top 3 seed and don't think they'll overcome lacking homecourt advantage against the likes of Houston, LAL, and/or Denver.
