Listen Everyone...draft TACKO FALL!! 

Post#1 » by orthoman » Mon May 20, 2019 5:18 pm

Tacko is a pure beast, a giant, a monster around the rim...he handles the ball like a volleyball (like Kawhi) :o

He's a great kid and has gotten much quicker and much, much stronger in the two years I watched him at UCF games.

A prospect his size only comes around every +- 20 years. When he was not in foul trouble at UCF, the momentum of the game
was altered DRAMATICALLY...the other teams freaked out and threw up air balls...time and time again I witnessed this.

He would be a great addition to our team..maybe give him 10 minutes a game. as a start. Pair him with Bamba and get a cheap
veteren center to teach for one year,

Why throw all that money away on Vucevic who can't compete against the big boys come playoff time...all we'll see is more of the same for the next 3-4 years...posssibly a declining talent. Vuc is too slow and methodical. He won't get us past the first round again.

Its going to suck if another team gets Tacko!

We draft Tacko with our 16th pick or 46th pick?

I am pretty sure if we intend to draft him with 46th, he'd be long gone... Tacko may go as high as late first

IMO, I would take him with the 16th pick.

IMO, its going to be a shame if we invest 3-4 years more of Vucevic..whose bottom line is that he CANNOT get past the better
teams in the playoffs. He is slow and methodical. Sure, he got good numbers this year during the regular season but our team lacks shooters. When Vuc is double-teamed low he sputters.

Use the money for Ross and another shooter.

Sad day when Tacko goes somewhere else. My son took classes with him at UCF and said Tacko was one of the nicest kids
there, he's ever met.

Nobody's wasting a 2nd on him. Just sign him as a UDFA.

I'd actually take him at 46 if he's there. I'm impressed by how much weight he put on. I think he can be an 8th or 9th guy. Might be able to develop into a Birch replacement.

are you guys for real?
Sorry but unless we can trade a 2050 2nd round, top 55 protected pick for the #60 pick this year, im not drafting him, and even then id likely pass

If we are just going off potential and are swinging for the fences in the 2nd round, ill take someone like Darius Bazley over him all day long

We can't draft Tacko with the 16th pick. 46th pick yes but Tacko might be gone before the 46th pick. What if a team drafted Tacko, Do they really want Tacko and keep him or would they trade him to us if that team drafted him?

I'd consider him with #46 but not #16.

Tacko gets massively overrated here because he's on UCF, IMO. I mean, maybe you take a chance on him at 46 and he becomes Roy HIbbert when he was good, but something about him makes me think he won't translate to NBA speed.

This team would fall from playoff team to tank hard team.

Jokes aside, perhaps I'd draft him with the #46 (or buying a late 2nd), but only if we know that Birch will be gone.

#16 should be spent on a scoring wing.

I'd take a flyer on him with a 2nd, and especially if he goes undrafted. I don't think he'll become a good NBA player, but may as well stick him in the G and see what he can do. The fact he can reach above the rim with his standing reach could be insane for deterring shots at the rim.

He would have had about the same successful season if he was on a different college team. NBA teams are interested in him. NBA teams are trying to project his future in the NBA, not what college he played at.

I both read and heard on the radio that the scouts are saying he is a NBA talent based on his insane combine and workouts so far. I wouldn't be surprised if he is drafted mid 2nd or late 1st.

If we offered #16 + Isaac, would that move us high enough to be in a position to take Tacko?
