I was all over Giannis since draft day. I saw his build, wingspan, and mindset and was confident that he'd develop into an all-star at the very least. I was right on that part, though I did think he'd turn into more of a KD-type player than the Shaq-type beast who just won 2 MVPs.

That makes me 1 for 2 on Bucks draft predictions - I'm still trying to forget the praise I gave Jabari Parker back in the day :(

Yes, because they picked him at 15. You did not find this kid. He was in third division Greece.

find those quotes and bring um through. lol. I have one in mind but the search function is down. Somebody pretty much accurately predicted Steph Curry's MVP type numbers before he got in the league. I would have thought whoever that was would have been first up to bat to take the credit on that one.


I think that might be me.

well ... just wait, doubters... players like curry don't come around often... he will find ways to be successful, always.. in 3 years he will have the highest basketball IQ in entire league... combine that with one of the best jump shots... it's so obvious, i just don't understand how people can't see it.

i've been on board since his very first game against north carolina. he's special. the real deal. it's so obvious... most of you are so blind.

stephen curry >>> o.j. mayo


I was just a kid then. Weird.

Wasn't that one. Someone had called damn near exact stats from an MVP season. But this is fantastic insight.

I don't remember being such a dick about it back then sorry about that. :D :lol:

Just got lucky really. I noticed his unbelievable shooting ability early on by randomly catching that North Carolina game. Then I kept watching him play, and you know how that goes. He kept delivering in the clutch unlike anyone else. Plus I figured he grew up around professional NBA players his entire life. After I saw him easily shift to point guard at Davidson, I was convinced he'd be a future superstar.

OG Anunoby was my favourite prospect and I was hellbent on the Raptors picking him. Still time left for OG to prove me right re: Mitchell!

Evidence: viewtopic.php?p=55411250#p55411250

"Post-Combine Board:
Tier 1 - Unlikely to be available, but must draft
1. OG Anunoby
2. Donovan Mitchell

I think Anunoby has the higher ceiling, but Mitchell has an incredibly high floor. Amazing athlete, great shooter, and elite defender."
