    In a second. Anthony Davis side-by-side with Motie for future? Yes, please. And imagine a frontcourt of David and Asik right now. They'd be the best defensive frontcourt by mid-season.

    This is the stupidest, most one-sided trade proposal I think I've seen here. There's a Random Trade Thread for a reason.

    So let me get this straight.

    You listed Jones, White and Lamb's accolades to show their talent. Yet you feel like it is unnecessary to list any of Davis' because all we need to know is that he is a #1 pick, not the fact that he has a gold medal, nor the fact that his accolades dwarfs the other 3 combined. You know, factors that would help people determine whether they would "trade White, Lamb and Jones for Davis?"

    It's clear you're trying to downplay Davis's potential and abilities. This is a joke.

    I'm going with no, because you never know with a #1 overall pick bigman. He could be a force to be reckoned with, or he could be another Greg Oden or Yao Ming and get injured or simply not translate the College/High School game well into the NBA Game. You never know. Same with our 3 picks, but there's more chance of at least one of them being good. Plus, where would Motie go? He's a PF, not a C. Would he back up Asik or vice versa? What would be the point of signing a 25mil C for a backup? I don't know, there's so many variables and possibilities and circumstances that could arise, but I'm definitely not going with Yes right off the bat.

    How is this random trade suggestion different? Your first sentence was "This is just a hypothetical question, so bare with me."

    You knew you wouldn't get enough attention if you posted it in the random trade thread so you decided to start another 1 star thread. This trade is not remotely close to reality and it isn't happening.

    If anything you should have posted it in the NBA Draft section because that is really what this thread amounts to. You are basically asking "Would you trade a #12, #16, and #18 pick for the #1 pick?".

    It's amazing to me that you haven't been demoted to rookie so you can't start threads anymore. I'm really bored and sick at home so I decided to look at your average thread rating over the past 100 days. You've averaged 1.96 over 23 threads started. 3 of those threads have been trade threads that you could have easily put in the random trade thread.

    Maybe ask yourself twice if the thread is a good idea or if it could go in another thread and maybe people wouldn't rip you so much.

    You don't think Morey tried to get that pick before the Draft? All that's changed is our assets had a strong Summer League, which is great, but still not enough to make a swap for the overall number one.

    In reality, here's what it would take.

    Davis starting the season poorly and D-Mo and Lamb tearing it up, then the required package would be.

    Lamb
    D-Mo
    Parsons
    Toronto Pick
    Our Pick

    And that would be too much, so neither side would budge.

    And most of your threads suck!

    I'd trade our entire roster for Anthony Davis. Upside like his is so hard to find.

    On why this topic is on this thread, I think I can understand why since I was browsing/reading CF when this pops out. On one of the threads here, Badlee and another poster where discussing the merits of Davis vs all our new rooks. I guess that's what prompted badlee to quickly make a poll just to quick check where are CF members siding into this.

    but we havent even seen the dude play in the nba yet, some dudes actually become a bust so i would say no, and plus we do need a good sg and lamb would be great since kmart might be traded soon.

    Say it in the correct places. This is a completely random unrealistic trade. You bring down the forum by posting ridiculous threads that only try to get attention for yourself.
