I could see Washington or Zion edging Clarke out, but I'd be overjoyed even with a 2nd team bid for him.

Zion is going to win rookie of the year if he comes back when expected and stays healthy.

So, KD has given his “Slim Reaper” title to Nic Claxton including his own customized KD12s and DeAndre Jordan has said Claxton has “Bosh-like potential.” in training camp.

Now, Dinwiddie and Kyrie add on with these comments after Claxton made his NBA debut.

Dwinddie with a low key shot at Kyrie. :lol:

Porzingis&Doncic will be the white and more dominant version of Kobe&Shaq.

Since you watched the game for Portland vs Brooklyn. Nassir Little also made his debut. He made a couple of small mistakes on the defensive end, but overall looked really good. He blocked a jumpshot. Had 2 ferocious dunks.

His stat line ended up being 8 points, 3 rebounds (1 oreb), 1 stl, 1 blk in 18 minutes. As a Brooklyn fan I'd be interested to see what you thought about his play.

Little was our consensus pick behind Rui during last season before making the playoffs was realistic. Watching him in Portland looked exactly like what we all thought when we fell to you guys. A steal pick.

Not sure why he isn’t replacing Harkless already. He’s going to grow in the Blazers system culture.

I still got my homer Hunter pick in as a sleeper. He had a nice game last night in Portland. Defensively and offensively.

It'll be hard for him to win I think purely because he isn't flashy, but that doesn't mean he was the wrong pick for you guys at #4 if he plays well.

Cam seems to be having his ups and downs, but I still think that was a decent gamble given where you selected him. Hopefully he gets things figured out.

Hunter is not flashy but damn him and Reddish are long when watching them on the defensive end. I hope they develop and eventually give the Hawks a top perimeter D in the future.

Cam Johnson finally getting some minutes, and confidence.

Only rookies I am impressed with so far. Morant, RJ, and Brandon Clarke (I talked bad about him , but hes making me eat my words)

Other than that, I cant be too upset about the Cam Johnson pick. He is something the suns needed. Smart Player, who can shoot.

I am impressed with those three along with PJ and Rui. I am also impressed with Hunter and Reddish on the defensive end of the floor. They are both struggling offensively and its way to early to make any judgements.

They said this was a deep class and so far it certainly looks that way.

I know everyone is young, but Reddish was getting destroyed by Simons in the Portland/Atlanta game. Hunter did well though.

Looks like the Grizz are not even gonna play Morant he took a night off on Saturday and only play about 20 minutes today.

Rookie load management might make this ROY closer than expected.

This class so far kind of looking how I thought it was going to look. I think Brandon Clarke ends up the best from this class not named Zion.

Ja: I still think he ends up being mostly flash than substance.
RJ: Seen his last 4 games and thought he has looked horrible. That jumper/FT is just so bad.
Hunter: Has looked okay I guess. But ya I think many were right when they say they dont see star potential. On ball offense looks so far behind.
Garland/Culver: Just dont see it with either one
Hayes: Looks just like a Mitchell Robinson/Robert Williams freak athlete that makes some highlights and advanced stats love them, but dont get lots of minutes because when you watch them its clear they look lost out there. Big difference is Williams was late 1st round and Robinson was 2nd round, Hayes was 8th overall.
Rui: Has looked good. Maybe he can carve out a Tobias Harris kind of career if he can get that 3pt shot?
Cam: Not much needs to be said here.

Dont get me wrong, I dont think all this draft is going to be all busts. And Im sure there will be a couple late bloomers that will surprise people. I also get its only been 6-10 games and way too early to write off people's careers. This was my thought pre draft, Ive been very vocal that I thought this draft was very weak, so far a few weeks into the season, dont see anything that makes me want to change my mind.

There was one play, in particular, that he turned Reddish into a parking cone. He didn't go by him like he wasn't there, he went by him like he never existed.

But, in fairness, Simons was givin' it to everybody that game. Talented kid and we (the Hawks) defended him poorly.

Overall though, Reddish has been pretty good defensively.
