    I spin until the Brooklyn pick gets top 4. May not be able to do that for long.

    2023 draft class looks monstrous

    Would you take Anthony Black over Amen Thompson if AB's new jumper is real?

    Fortunately we have alot of time to evaluate the 3-10 guys and a ton of new data coming with tournament season.

    Quite a number of good guards. Scoot, Thompson, Smith Jr, Black, etc.

    Best case scenario we land Wemby, and can trade Sengun and his cult for another top ten pick.

    Potential late first. Older but would still fit the timeline.

    Sasser has ‘Van Fleet’ potential in the league, definitely worth a late first/early second.

    I would probably not even take him over Nick Smith. I’m sure a lot of Black’s good start can be attributed to Smith’s absence. It will be interesting to see how it shakes out.

    I know everybody LOVES Scoot but Anthony Black is the real deal. The guy reminds me of Cade Cunningham, but he has more game and play better defense. Scoot is a explosive player but he is short and not great on the defense end. Black is 6'7, has great passing skills and handles. He plays great defense and can cover 1-4 position. i can see Stone drafting and falling in love with Anthony Black. Stone LOVES big point guard but KPJ and Nix are not NBA point guards. Anthony Black is a legit point guard.

    It will be interesting to watch the climbers and fallers. I have paid much more attention now that the Rockets are picking high. The good thing about this draft is that I am confident we are going to either get Wemby or a good PG.

    Dariq Whitehead has fallen from #6 to #13 in the last few weeks.

    Wemby is the obvious but there's quite a few guys in this draft that I like depending upon where we're picking .... Some of them I would consider moving up for.

    3-5
    Amen Thompson
    Brandon Miller

    Late lotto
    Anthony Black (he may well move up)

    Late 1st / early 2nd (Milwaukee pick)
    DaRon Holmes
    Marcus Sasser
