    We are safe at 3 now from the bust of the draft Holmgren. I am extremely happy with Banchero. They played against each other last year and Banchero dominated over Holmgren. Timme was the star of Gonzaga and Banchero was the star of Duke.

    That never happened

    I am much more optimistic about Green's defense than Banchero. We'll be talking about Green as a plus defender in a year or two. I don't think Banchero will ever get to that level.

    This thread will be classic in 5 yrs. Either Chet will be a star or Greg Oden.

    I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see Holmgren drop a little. His talent is undeniable, but that body is a nightmare. It will be interesting to see how things shake out for him.

    Yes, best player on the court. Timme was the best for Gonzaga….same as in tournament.

    Originally I didn’t want Jalen Green but everything turned out ok. So I’m happy to take Banchero if he’s there at 3.

    I didn't want chet before, but seeing the dumber posters on here unanimously against him is making me reconsider.

    I hope Jabari ends up on the Rockets. I wish they would do what they need to get him.

    Chet has the highest upside in this draft. Period

    Good luck getting the best player in the draft with the 3rd pick. I was heartbroken we ended up with the 3rd pick…so close but so far away.

    There are some on other threads who compared him to Durant. Smh. Durant never played as a big. Holmgren doesn’t have the quick step Durant has and not as offensively talented which brings up the dilemma on how to play him. Too skinny to play 5, undersized 4, but has some guard ability and shooting touch. So you would have to play him at the 3? This doesn’t solve the Rockets poor paint defense or rebounding issues.
