Not Ayton's best game. If they get bounced right now, there is a chance for Bagley to build some momentum if he can have a great deep run.

u serious? 15-16 Curry led an NBA team to 73 wins. :lol:

Arizona getting wrecked by Buffalo right now.


Ultimately I agree, but I'm a biased Curry fan.

Putting on my objective hat for a second: did you see that Davidson team today? Could MVP Curry really carry that group all the way to the promised land? I'm getting giddy just thinking about it. It would be like a real life Teen Wolf. :lol:

Doncic clear number one if Ayton is out of tournament this early?
Celtics fan. :crazy:
We also face the Kings twice in the near future. I think it's time Yabu pays back some of that free money he's been given his entire career and bounces Fox for a nice 2 week ankle sprain.

Ayton has looked so disappointing in this game since I started watching.

Meh...Ben Simmons' team didn't even make the tourny.

Not impressed with Ayton off-ball though. He's not fighting for positioning at all. He's getting pushed out of his spots too easily and not fighting to get back.

I've been watching AZ all year and am a Suns fan and the team really needs a C and Doncic has been my clear #1 all year. Ayton's always lost on defense. He probably provides more than Bagley on that end but not much.

This Michigan-Montana match is just pure garbage...probably the worst basketball match I have seen in recent times

Wow, even in my bracket, I barely chose them over Kentucky having watched them all year. As for your next post, I still think the clear top 3 to be drafted will be Bagley, Doncic and Ayton. I hope if the Suns get a top 3 pick they end up with Doncic. Bagley is enticing but I am not sure his fit on the Suns. I think he would work best on a great defensive team with 3 pt shooters. Like Houston would be perfect...he could play the Capela role.

If somehow Bender really improves, since he can spread the floor and block some shots, and has pretty good defense for his age, Bagley has exactly the strengths to pair with him if Bender can bulk up and become a good interior defender as well..because they have opposite strengths. That's a lot of hope for Bender, but I still believe in him if he has the right coach.

Hoping they end up with Igor Kokoskov as coach. I think they may end up with Fizdale though with James Jones as the president of basketball operations.

I don’t often watch college basketball but work from home and figured I’d catch a big today. Turned to the Alabama game and no joke for a few seconds I thought I was watching women’s basketball, it was like a bunch of Cameron Payne’s out there, is that horrible hair style the fashion now?

this will be funny if duke wins it all and bagley gets picked over ayton, dont get me wrong bagley is good right now but id rather have ayton since he is already showing that he is a center.. bagley maybe the best tweener out there if he is better than odom well and good but right now id rather have ayton even if i cant compare a player for him.

Bagley's defense being rated an 8/10 on NBA draft.net is insane almost makes me discount them.

I have 13th seed Marshall going to the final 4 and no #1 seeds going to the final 4. So, I might not be winning this year.

I like Marshall because they have a really strong veteran starting backcourt, and Paneva's a really good forward.

I want Marshall to win, but it should be Wichita State's ball. 36 seconds left, that's a huge call.

By the way, Elmore is no realistic prospect, but he's great fun to watch.
At the end of the day, it's not about wins and losses. Teamwork, fair play, and good sportsmanship make champions of us all.

Haven't been watching this Texas game. Just tuning into OT now. Has Bamba looked good?
