If the Pacers didn't re sign Teague, I would be pumped if they drafted Fox. He has very similar skills to John Wall, hes a little smaller but he can play. Very very fast. Hes arguably a better shooter than Wall even was coming out.

Out of LIKES, but I agree. I would Draft Fox at #2.

De'Aaron Fox would be great. I would take him in an instant. I also like his teammate Malik Monk. But he wouldn't get drafted at 1 or 2

I agree, I think the C's will take Fultz first. If I was Magic I would take Fox 2nd. I like him better than Ball as an overall player. + you avoid the Lavar nonsense.

No way on God's green earth would I draft Lonzo Ball. I would have an aneurism having to deal with his dad

If we went that way, we'd also have cap space....to, well.

If we don't resign Teague and trade Paul....

we'd' have enough cap space to buy some 'Big Baller' shoes from Lavar

Unless Lonzo was Pete Marovich immediately.....LaVar's act would not play well here.

In fact, I cant think of a lot places where it would play well.

But the key thing about PG to the Lakers is would Magic trade for him knowing he could easily get him in FA next summer? But Magic wants to make a huge splash so trading for him on draft night would be quite the splash

That's a good point.....

Magic cant get Ball..and trade for Paul.....now...

 

..and the risk there is..if we win 50-55 games (and we won 42 this year without Lance) ....they don't get him at all

At this point I don't think he is close to Pistol. IMO Pistol was probably the best College Basketball player of all-time. It's between him and Kareem (Lew)

The celtics may move the pick for butler

    There are other scenarios.

Paul George doesn't have to sign for 5 years. He could sign for 3 and still go 'home' to LA when he's 30,

 

Paul could also simply play 2017-2018 and accept his player option for 2018-2019 and then walk if we aren't good

I honestly think it's worth it because I'm still of the mindset that the Lakers will have both PG and Westbrook by the 2018 season

That's another good point...we think PG, PG..

But Magic could get Westbrook to opt of his final year and the tell Paul, hey. look at what we have.

 

...the Lakers have more cap space than Saudi Arabia

...and Jeannie Buss will let Magic go as far over the cap as he needs to

She loves the Magic Man

They could and I think that would be a good move for them because they need another SuperStar to compete against LeBron, that is clear LOL.

the Bulls at like us....they don't want to tear down, tank and rebuild.

I think they're keeping Rondo and Wade and trying to make a run next year.

 

They had Boston beat until Rondo got hurt

You love Wilt I know that but how about Danny Manning at Kansas. Steve Alford was an awesome college player at IU as well. He won a Championship in 87.

Larry Bird and Magic Johnson are both there...

They were better than some of those guys who just happened to play for Duke

I am just talking college here, of course Magic and Bird were better than the much hated Laettner lmao, college wise Laettner was a king though with his resume.

Magic was a great MSU Guard and he won a title.

 

..and you know that Larry Bird was a much better college player than Cristian Laettner.

...Laettner had a lot of help

I used to be a hardcore runner and I still didn't pay more than 100 dollars for a great running shoe. The shoe I have now spent 70 dollars on. When I played Basketball in Highschool I had a pair of 75 dollar Reebok pumps, that was back in 89.

I cannot get over how the birds show up between 4 and 6 in the outfield at Wrigley almost every day.

For decades..   How do they know?

Because a lot of early games and they swarm in for the food that is left in the stands is my guess. When games end at 5 or 6 there are the Geeses lmao

   I see the networks promoting the conference finals.

They have to be getting smoked......I know TNT and ESPN pay extra for the conference finals an the ratings have to be in the basement.

 

ESPN and ABC are the same thing so they'll be okay with the final But TNT is out of luck....

But they dont have cell phones or wrist watches, do they?.

Unless they live at the park 24-7, how do they know there's a game.

 

Pocket schedules?  Do they get a text?

How many generations of birds have played in the outfield at Wrigley Field where their fathers and grandfathers played?

Yeah I wont even watch tonight, no need. I already know what's going to happen. Much like last night with the Warriors/Spurs. I will check on it about every 20-30 minutes just to see if any injuries have taken place because at this point that is really the only thing of significance that can derail the Cavs or Warriors moving forward.

    • If the Colts are looking for a YAC guy, Corley could be a target.  He does look like Debo.  Basically a RB once he has the ball.  I like him too.  It really depends on if they’re looking for a more vertical threat. Corely does show vertical shots on film but probably not his number one strength. 
    • Had to pull off a trade with the Bills to gain extra R5 pick.   Personally, am warming up to Luke.  Then again rooted heavily for him as Nebraska's QB and glad to see him succeed as a wide receiver.   WR Luke McCaffrey (Rice) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 46th in yards per route (2.11), 32nd in drop percentage (4.1 percent; three drops), 11th in contested catches (60.7 percent; at 17-of-28, his 17 contested catches trail only Washington’s Rome Odunze) and 36th in YAC per catch (6.0).  Liking Luke's low drop percentage and ability to make contested catches.  Pretty solid company to be compared to Odunze who had issues prior season and outdone Marvin Harrison Jr. this year.     SS Trey Taylor (Air Force) won Jim Thorpe Award in 2023 with strong leadership qualities in the secondary.  Taylor is related to Ed Reed.  After 9 weeks Taylor’s 88.5 coverage grade is second among Group of Five safeties while posting an impressive 78.8 run-defense grade.  Taylor overall PFF grade of 85.8.
    • My top 4 realistic draft picks.  Not sure we take a WR in Round 1 but would look for Roman Wilson in Round 3 and Luke in Round 5.  Swing a trade for multiple Round 5 draft picks and add another offensive weapon in TE Ben Sinnott whom I think is probably the third best TE in the class.    WR Adonai Mitchell (Texas) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 78th in yards per route (1.72), sixth in drop percentage (1.8 percent; one drop), 79th in contested catches (36.4 percent; 4-of-11) and 100th in YAC per catch (3.2). He caught 8-of-22 passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield.   WR Xavier Legette (SC) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked fifth in yards per route (3.15), 18th in drop percentage (2.7), 49th in contested catches (47.6 percent; 10-of-21) and 29th in YAC per catch (6.4). He caught 13-of-24 passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield, good for an eighth-ranked 54.2 percent.   WR Roman Wilson (Michigan) - According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 13th in yards per route (2.68), ninth in drop percentage (2.0 percent; one drop), 72nd in contested catches (37.5 percent; 3-of-8) and 67th in YAC per catch (4.6).   WR Luke McCaffrey (Rice) According to PFF, 110 FBS-level receivers in this draft class were targeted at least 55 times. He ranked 46th in yards per route (2.11), 32nd in drop percentage (4.1 percent; three drops), 11th in contested catches (60.7 percent; at 17-of-28, his 17 contested catches trail only Washington’s Rome Odunze) and 36th in YAC per catch (6.0).
    • FWIW:   At $6 million per that made MAC one of the top-12 paid players on the Colts 2023 roster.   Do you still think he’s cheap?  
    • Isn’t it time to look for a home run pick for the offense? Bowers would be that kind of pick. Having a dynamic TE would be huge and would arguably be equal to picking up a WR1 running mate for Pitt. If he’s available at 15 I think it’s a no brainer to pick him.
