    I mean SGA and #6...
    SGA is an absolute baller.
    Are we sure Green or Cade are gonna ever be as good as SGA? Tough call.

    If he can realize his potential to the fullest, I would imagine that looks like a player slightly better than Beal, Booker, and Lavine, but not quite on the level of Kobe and McGrady because of his height, weight, and wingspan compared to Kobe and T-Mac. I mean those guys are all time greats so no shame in that.

    Still a heck of a player. Anybody should be happy if that’s the outcome.

    I've ignored you for the most part because you are a worthless poster.

    Leave to you to not understand the difference between similar tier RIGHT NOW vs. best player in 5 years.

    Carry on pissant.

    You ready to start paying SGA 30Ms per year after next season?

    SGA is not truly available according to Lowe and I get he's 22 and what not, but you have to pay him a crap ton of money soon

    Yeah, I heard that too. Better pay him than Wood though.

    Rather pay him than Wood. I think SGA is a max player.

    On the one hand... no... i mean SGA is a legit baller. 24, 5, 6 shooting 42% from 3...

    On the other hand...
    * doesn't fit as well with timeline (though he's only 22, so not that crazy)
    * doesn't have the absolute upside of Green, Mobley or Cade potential
    * Presti seems eager to dump him to move up for these same players

    *Timeline seems fine.
    *No one knows Green, Mobley or Cade's upside against NBA competition.
    *Actually, Lowe disputed it.

    I get what you're saying. I agree. Any of those 4 are better than anyone we have. Wood isn't a max player. He isn't the best player on a contending team. Maybe one of the 4 could be.

    Sure buddy, hope you don't cry too much if it's not Mobley.

    I think SGA is a fine player. Will his arc eclipse KPJ? You have KPJ under control for years.

    He's definitely more efficient now. Small sample size though. Doesn't matter. We're drafting Green.

    Sounds like Green unless Detroit takes him then we get Cade. Win win.

    This is a condemnation rather than an affirmation.

    But writing is on the wall, GO GREEN!
