    Barnes can’t shoot. We will not hate not drafting him (double negative, but still valid)

    Green, Mobley, Suggs and Cade will all be stars in this league at some point but Jalen’s lovable good natured try hard high flying wow factor and winning personality: it’s all going to win over the NBA fans everywhere. We want that on this team.

    Mobley and Cade look like they will be awesome but people are going to freaking fall in love with Jalen Green. Being loved = good calls, good coverage, hype, everything… go Green or go home.

    I really like Bassey. Good call. About 6'11" and 230lbs with a big body that can fill out, a 7'3" wingspan, great hands, who can really cover ground quickly in transition and knows what to do when he gets the ball. Bassey would make Rockets fans forget about Clint's free throw woes, averaging 76% from the line. A terrific lob target for our guards. The kid has a hunger for blocking the ball, averaging just over 3 a game, not to mention grabbing more than 11 boards for Western Kentucky. Hakeem could have fun helping Bassey develop.

    There will doubtless be a lot of talent at 24 and Stone will have to earn his paycheck deciding who to take if we still have the pick, but I wouldn't cry if he surprised some people and grabbed Bassey.

    Want to put this in writing in the bump thread so I can receive the proper clowning that this assessment deserves.

    I predict that Mobley will be like Shawn Marion. He has too slender a body to dominate inside (hence his meh rebounding), doesn't play with the intensity to make up for his slender body (a la KG), his handles are good for his size but not better than average for a ball-handler in the NBA, and the sample size on his shooting is too small for me to confidently project him developing a great outside shot (although likewise there is no reason for me to confidently predict he won't be a good shooter). So I don't see the KG/AD/TD predictions; I see an elite Mikal Bridges type - again, a Shawn Marion type.

    Not that this is a bad thing. Marion was awesome. But it's different from what I think is the consensus.

    For my proper clowning; based on ma' guggle research, I think Josh Giddey could be a bust.

    My other bold prediction is at least one person in this draft will make the all stars.

    Thoughts?

    Hou out: EG + Wood + 23 + 24 + worst of 2022 Mia/Brooklyn picks
    Hou in: Wiggins + 3

    GS out: Wiggins + 7 + 14
    GS in: Wood + EG

    Cle out: 3
    Cle in: 7 + 14 + 23 + 24 + worst of 2022 Mia/Brooklyn picks

    I personally love it. Having those two guys get a lot of minutes gives you probably a top 6 next year. After that you have 3 top picks. KPJ/Tate/Kmart and go from there continuing improve then let the Nets picks come in.
