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.

    • Shhh, the more he is "overlooked" the better off Downs and the Colts will be.
    • Dude diving for that catch made a fan of me. 
    • He is superbly quick, nearly unguardable. A very high % as a extension of our run game. With the speed to wheel them over the top. The guy should perform as a 9/10 in our offense.    
    • I think PFF is useful for analyzing individual players. But if I want to analyze the team's pass rush performance, I don't want to know how many times the individual players pressured the QB; I want to know the number of plays we managed to pressure the opposing QB.    For example, the QB drops back 50 times in a game, and he's pressured 15 times, and sacked three times. Let's say each of those 15 plays where he's pressured, there are two defenders getting pressure. PFF would count that as 30 pressures for the defense, because they're acknowledging that two players got a pressure on one play. Same process if each sack was shared among two players; they'd count six sacks, even though the QB was only sacked on three plays.   And that's fine, because that's their focus. But I think that context needs to be acknowledged when we're talking about team performance. Because, as we know with our pass rush last year, we feasted against bad offenses, but there were too many situations where we failed to get pressure at all.    So I like to use PFR when talking about team performance, because their sack/pressure stats are on a per-play basis, rather than per-player. Both metrics can be used together, I just think PFR tells us 'the opposing QBs dropped back this many times, faced pressure on this many plays, and were sacked this many times.' And now we can clearly see how frequently the pass rush is affecting the QB. Or in the case of the 2023 Colts, how infrequently...
