like I said earlier...he's got a bit of Westbrook in him in that his body sometimes seems to move quicker than his brain because his so talented but the baseline talent on its own is definitely worthy of a lotto pick. It's the BBIQ and nuances of the game that are in question.

right it's not like he wasnt killing it predraft either
There are no valid legal arguments that people have any right to not wear masks in public at this point. Being asymptomatic or unaware if you are positive, does not make you exempt from any obligations to ensure society is free from your germs.

I think some NBA GMs and scouts are just as bad as we think they are. I know the draft is a crap shoot, but you can't convince me that there aren't horrible ones out there when you have Vlade Divac passing up on Luka Doncic for Marvin Bagley. Or how about the time he drafted Georgios Papagiannis.

Some NBA GMs are super incompetent. I don't think scouting is actually this hard. If NFL teams can sort through 11-12 positions and hundreds of prospects, I don't get how the NBA can't do the same with a much smaller talent pool. I think armchair GMs here have better scouting abilities than some actual scouts.....
