    only durant , and maybe morant .
    looking through it , the most succesful pick has been n3, with players like : carmelo,beal, embiid and harden ( not the best in the class, but franchise cornerstones) and then from 2016 to 2018, n3 picks rules, Jayson tatum, Jaylen brown ( over simmons maybe) and Luka.

    LOL

    Setting up strawman arguments now?

    I have said repeatedly that Mobley is a 4 and small ball 5 until he gains the necessary strength.

    Which will happen in a professional weight program as well as when his body naturally matures.

    Mobley next to Wood is much more dynamic than Garuba next to Wood, not debatable.

    Do you even realize that Mobley surpassing 220 when he is already 215 is not as impossible as your trying to convince everyone to believe.

    There is no reason to continue the personal attacks on this kid because I have struck a nerve with you somehow.

    Whether Rockets take Cade, Mobley or Green is win-win. All 3 are extremely talented and will improve the team we all root for, the question is who will ultimately be the most impactful player.

    It's all about our personal preference right now, there will be no crow to pass around for a few seasons.

    what Percentage do you actually think somebody drafted in the second round actually ends upbeing better than all four players at the top ? Honestly

    It’s less than 5%

    For every Jokic, Ginobili And Draymond Green....There is 60 they don’t even make it to the league

    It is a crapshoot but if you honestly think that you have even remotely as close a chance to get a superstar in the second round than in the top 10 you’re absolutely clueless... literally

    And how you will know that we are going that direction- before the season starts - Bet we trade some of our proven veterans for unproven young potential - This move right here is a tank move

    Mobley is the safer for pick

    If Green never develops His defense and playmaking abilities- Then Mobley will have been the better choice

    It definitely is. But this year we were obviously trying very hard for the absolute worst record to increase the chances of us keeping the pick.

    I'm not saying we will sign vets and compete but we will not try as hard as last year to be THIS bad. We will make sure to give kevin porter jr and Green as many minutes as possible and develop them.

    If Detroit doesn’t pick Cade, then they’re trading the pick for a king’s ransom. No other viable options.

    I think you forgot Dwight Howard.

    Anthony Davis is arguable too. Some might even argue Kyrie and Rose.

    We need to find a way to infect the Pistons FO with Green gang types to make this fantasy a reality.

    Do you take Cade or Mobley at 2?

    Cade, but it would be close. I'd then send a thank you note to Detroit.
