    Getting Rubio would be nice but not if we're bringing back Beverly.

    I hope the Lakers draft him so the Sixers can't.

    He's the best player in the draft.

    Don't be surprised if the Wolves take him. They are considering it.

    He reminds me more of curry imo. He's closer to 6'3 not 6'5 and he'll never have the size of harden not to mention harden is a much better athlete. With that said I think Russell has a chance to be a very good player and potential Allstar he really does have it all from a offensive stand point.

    He needs to improve his right hand a lot and get much stronger. He'll never be a good defender tho, whoever drafts him will have to hide him much like GSW does with curry.

    Lol, contradictory info:

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Contrary to reports, I'm told D'Angelo Russell would be thrilled to be play for Philadelphia.

    If he is there at 3, Philly are nuts if they don't take him.

    If the NBA continues to call the game like they have the last 6-8 years, I'd take Russell number 1. If they start letting the big men play, it's Okafor all day.
