Watching a lot more videos, he's actually got some Lillard to his game offensively. Especially how they move and shoot off screens

It's funny you say that. That was my minimum expectation of Flynn. I expect an improved version of Lillard within a season or two. After that, waive him if he doesn't become better than a prime Lillard.

I am just about to call for waiving Siakim, who I was expecting would become better than Lebron.

it means we don't have to run McCaw at PG anymore right? those were the golden days.

we actually have a legit backup to Lowry now. hopefully.

having slept on this pick and the 2nd round pick, i've decided that, based on youtube mixes where they only show made baskets, these 2 picks are absolute steals and we won the draft.

But we also missed out on all those other gems who never missed a bucket in their respective Youtube highlights.

you should see my package.

Mannnn... he just fits in with the history of our point guards. Kyle, Fred, Flynn.

It's so amazing to have this sort of tradition.

I'm in the same group with Theo, but not upset with this pick. I had Theo at 2 and Flynn at 11. I obviously love Flynn's game. He should come off the bench with Davis and have them grow together.

That doesn't mean Nurse will stop playing McCaw. Prepare for the bird to take flight again in December. Ka-kaw!

We have a guard that isn't afraid to use floaters to score over lengthy defenders.

The floater isn't easy but if a player can perfect it, that **** is almost unguardable, especially if they are good at control their speed and have the ability to stop on a dime.

I missed floater is also a good setup for a Boucher/Ibaka putback.

Really the only thing not to like about him is his measurements.

He instantly has the best handle on the team
He can finish with his left hand which helps his overall finishing ability

He's a scorer and a playmaker, which bodes well for playing on the ball and off the ball.

When we do a redraft in 5 years, I promise you Malachi will go top 5 at the very least in it.
