Ingram will be a PF as soon as he adds some bulk and Jackson is a SF.


I don't see Ingram, with that frame, ever adding enough bulk to be a PF.


Yea, unless he hits the gear I expect him to have a Tayshaun Prince type body throughout his career. He better get on that Anthony Davis supplements quick. :)
The playoff push!

Celtics have got to take Lonzo Ball #1 and hold him ransom.

Josh Jackson has yet to workout for the Boston Celtics, but the possibility of him going to them at No. 1 has gained momentum. Markelle Fultz has widely been considered the probable first overall pick for several months. – via insider.espn.com
Draft, Josh Jackson, Markelle Fultz, Boston Celtics
Storyline: No. 1 pick
“I’ve picked Danny’s brain for years,” one GM said. “Jackson is an Ainge player all the way. Tough, athletic, long, versatile, elite motor. If he’s keeping the pick, Jackson just to me, far and away, is the most Celtics-type player for them to draft. From all my conversations with them, I’m convinced they’ll take Jackson No. 1.” – via insider.espn.com

Ball will work out for the Lakers a second time on Friday at an undisclosed location in Los Angles county. He is hopeful the Lakers will give him some indication whether he’s “separated himself” throughout the draft process. Ball continues to have no plans to speak with or workout for the Boston Celtics, who hold the No. 1 pick. After Friday’s workout he will consider talking to other lottery teams who have asked to speak with him, according to the source. – via ESPN

Storyline: Draft Workouts
While Lonzo Ball has worked out only for the Los Angeles Lakers, the former UCLA Bruins star is considering talking to teams who have lottery picks below the Lakers, a source close to Ball told ESPN. – via ESPN

Should De'aaron Fox be taken over Lonzo Ball? I think he must at least be in serious consideration.

Kinda the way he always looks. He's got some tantalizing ability, but there's a "casualness" to him on the court that's rather concerning imo. I wouldn't blame the Celtics for taking a more fiery player like Jackson instead.

You really can't factor how a person's demeanor is like to evaluate their talents, well perhaps some do, but they really shouldn't.

Derrick Rose was infamous of showing absolutely no emotions the majority of the time, and at one point he was one of the best players in the league. T-Mac used to have relaxed, don't give a f*** type of demeanor either, until he'd explode past you and dunk all over your grill.

His motor scares me in a bad way. The motor issue might have lead him to settle on a lot of jumpers and taking some plays off on D.

I meant that his casualness spills over to his play on the court, affecting his motor. Rose was different, he was constantly in attack mode - Fultz seems to loaf around quite a bit, like he can't be bothered to go at full speed.

That tends to happen when millions of dollars depend on you staying healthy while performing like a #1 pick.

He was comfortably the best player in CBB while coasting. That is quite scary when basketball becomes his full job and he's getting paid to do it.

So you don't want D'Angelo as the lead guard because he's "too passive" and really confident.

Someone offer this guy a general manager position right away!!!

Wow, that's quite an excuse. But it was an issue before he was slotted as #1.

From a scout(s):
“I’d take him number one. His main weakness is defense, but he has some ability to play defense when there’s something at stake. He needs to be around a winning culture to get the best out of him. The most complete player in the draft. I don’t like that he cruises sometimes. He’s almost like Daryl Strawberry. Is he loafing or is he just that smooth? I don’t know that winning has ever been important to him. I’ve talked to friends who recruited him, and they said even when they watched him in open gyms or playing AAU, his team hardly ever won. That scares the crap out of me.”

For the record, I'd probably take him #1 as well - but I'd be wary at the same time.
