Charlotte 2020 Big Board - Pick #7 

Post#1 » by BigSlam » Thu Oct 15, 2020 5:00 pm

With the draft just over a month away I thought it a good time to get our big board up and going for this year.

We'll keep each picks thread open for a few days before I or another mod tally the votes, lock the thread and open the next pick thread.


Pick #1 = Wiseman (37% out of 30 total votes)
Pick #2 = Okongwu (48% out of 27 total votes)
Pick #3 = Edwards (45% out of 20 total votes)
Pick #4 = Ball (37% out of 27 total votes)
Pick #5 = Hayes (46% out of 26 total votes)
Pick #6 = Haliburton (48% of 25 total votes)

Speaking of this it's pretty unfair that freaking Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot, had to serve in the Israeli military, but Avdija more or less gets out of it.

Things were very different when Gal was that age

I'm going to try to convince everyone to hate him so he stays on the board and I can see how deep your pool of nicknames for him goes.

Tensions were higher back then for sure. And I suppose Gal may not have got the part to play WW if she didn't have military experience.

It just rubs me the wrong way that a young woman performed mandatory service for her country, but a little over a decade later a young man doesn't have to because he's good at basketball. But still you're right, it isn't quite an apples to apples comparison.

I mean, she was one of many low key pageant contestants at the time and the military is making more deferred service exceptions than ever because of Covid too so they're more than willing to keep numbers lower.

I doubt either of them is losing sleep over it

Didn’t he hit on almost 40% on 3 or 4 attempts per game?

If he did I don’t care if he shoots them out out of his butt!!!

I'm gonna pretend like I didn't watch that video and go Vassell.

Slam is dissing UNCNYC by not including Tyrell Terry in the poll.

Lmao. I am surprised to see Carey (who is projected late first to 2nd round) before Tyrell Terry, Tyler Bey, Josh Green, Leandro Balmaro, Saddiq Bey, and JaDen McDaniels. I figured he'd be added in soon tho.

Kinda interesting cuz it seems like we might as well include everyone in the draft since they are all of equal talent anyway lol

Since it looks like he may pull out the win here, I'll go ahead and share the coup de grace, and the nickname I will absolutely go with if the Hornets pick him:

In my defense: I just use the mock draft order at nbadraft.net when adding the next prospect.

Aleksej Pokusevski isn't listed until pick #40 at nbadraft.net - but I could always add him earlier?

Pity the polls only allow 10 options. I'd rather just list all prospects at the same time.
