    Trade Tate or KMJ now cause we ain’t got no more minutes!

    Jabari 6’10 & Eason 6’8

    a lot better than two 6’5 forwards

    Team getting bigger and more defensively capable.

    A lineup of KPJ, JayGup, Eason, Jabari and Sengun is a really good defensive unit.
    (Sengun playing QB and organising as well as surprising shot blocking)

    Excellent pick!

    He basically has NOTHING offensively, throws his 3 point shot over his shoulder, and just puts his head down and burrows towards the hoop
    But yet he still delivered something on that end...
    He probably won't be asked to create anything for us - just fill lanes, defend, and take the open shots.

    They fixed Green's manky looking shot last year, hopefully they can work the same magic with Tari

    This draft is rolling out GREAT! Even better than my expectations!

    I was happy with Paolo - but wanted Jabari...

    I wanted Eason - but thought we'd have to give an asset to move up...

    2 GREAT picks - without giving up anything additional! I couldnt be happier! :)

    I like a 6'8 guy who can create his own shot, very good pick up. Now how does Silas make all this young talent work?

    Kessler if he’s there?

    The pairing of Smith and Eason as forwards should be fun. An absolute show in transition and should be very, very switchable. Great fit with Green as an alpha scorer and helps keep the ball in his hands.

    Bye KJ/Tate.

    We still need a backup center.

    Time to flip KMJ or Tate and #26 for TyTy Washington.

    Wow, our defense should be real good next season. I am ecstatic with our draft so far!

    What we need now is probably more playmaking. With Paolo we would have all the playmaking we need - now with Jabari and Eason we might need somebody else besides KPJ, Green and Sengun.

    looking at TyTy, Chandler or maybe Jovic with the next pick. But lots of other options would look good as well, Kessler, Lidell, Beauchamp, Branham.

    Love it. 5 years from now, we are championship contenders. I love what Stone and the front office are doing. Building a Warriors-like dynasty.

    So the future is set.

    Sengun, Jabari, Eason, Green, KPJ and JayGup as 6th man.

    Another logical, home-run pick!

    Can we just PLEASE not get angry when Eason isn't starting next year?

    It will be Jabari and an experienced player (Tate?) starting.

    You just don't throw 2 rookies out there together as starters (and that's ok)
