being a naked account.
Hey, what's up? And you're good. Yeah.
Can you hear me? Got any co host? Maybe that would make it go faster, so Yeah, well, um I'm not sure.
I think I think my I think my yeah is the car.
Yeah, I think that's the issue.
So when I when I turned a man, when I when I looked over, man, it was blinking.
Where? Um so But it was just this technology, bro.
What do you you know? What do you do? I appreciate you coming back through man and helping me through it.
Um, what's that Flying, huh? I'm gonna follow you, bro.
Hey, what's up, Shapey? 93.
I'm gonna just recap the picks and we got to pick three through pick three.
So, um, we got to see Charlotte taking the middle of all.
And I know you all had a, uh, se ah disagreement with that.
And that's kind of why we're here doing it.
You know what I'm saying? Because because the fun part is not just watching the draft, but but, you know, um, second guessing and playing Monday was a Monday morning quarterback to to whoever you know makes the picks.
I wanted to say that e think Charlotte takes elemental ball there because I don't see Devante Graham and Terry Rozier having upside of a lamento ball at the point guard position.
Um, it's just, you know, I think that the kid has just got too much outside.
I'm not saying he's better than them right now.
What I'm saying in the long run, he's definitely, in my view, a better player.
I think I'll both Graham and, uh, rules Ear can play next to next to ball.
So it's just you're probably gonna have to pick between Graham and Rose here, right? So what do you think about all three of them being on the floor at the same time? That works, too.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
I am, um, you know, looked at a scenario where all three on the floor at the same time.
I think Graham thrives the most, and that internet scenario, because he can, you know, get the one on one attention that he can dominate.
What I'm saying as opposed to you, you know, him being on the ball, being focused of the defense and all that stuff.
So, yeah, I think both rose here and and Graham can play well off ball, so it's just their willingness to make it work.
All right, so with the number four pick, the Chicago Bulls are on the clock.
I think their team's strengths are they have a young core and valuable trade pieces.
So the valuable trade pieces I mentioned art that is Young and Otto Porter Jr.
Maybe even Laurie marketing.
Um, the the young core that I'm talking about is, you know, Kobe White Window, Carter, um, Daniel Gafford, Um, and Laurie Marketing.
I don't include Zach Lavine in that, even though he's, I think he's 25.
But he's not a old player by any stretch, but he's definitely, you know, on on a different type.
Um, timeline or career career.
Yeah, it's interesting, though.
I heard that they like Denny a lot, really? So let me let me tell the world who I have done slaughters to take, and then we could we could get into that.
So I have them drafting, killing in Hayes, and I think the best fit for their team is killing Hayes.
Really? Yeah, yeah, and it's a That's a disappointment to Knicks fans.
Because, you know, they didn't mean they got the point guard two years in a row.
And, you know, um, seems like, you know, they seems like the Kobe White thing may not be he exactly what they thought it was gonna be.
Um, so it's, you know, either you wait a couple years to find out what Kobe White can give you at the point guard position or you draft a guy you know is better than him right now.
And his younger I don't know if he's better.
I think they're different, though.
You know what you have? He gets markets.
You had like, e because 30.8.
There were six or something.
You have some ridiculous run.
And even so, but they're interesting group because I know, I know.
Twitter really likes Hayes, right? Twitter.
So I see that, um, what I've been reading, it seems like they like Denny and then new front office.
Very keen on foreign players.
So right when you look at them, you think they need a point guard? Um, well, so since I don't live in the New York Tri state area.
When I watched the Chicago Bulls versus New York Knicks games in a bizarro way, I wanted to get the Chicago Bulls broadcast instead of the Knicks broadcast, you know? So we're during the games all game long.
All they would talk about is how they have a gaping hole at point guard that they need to fill.
Okay, you know, you And and so, um and that's before I even looked at Killian Hayes.
And so my question was, Well, you all knew that.
And you're drafted Kobe White.
Why don't you be patient enoughto have him more nuclear position? And you know, their thing was Kobe White.
Maybe Lou Williams or Lou Williams type player, like, you know, can combo some, um, you know, but definitely not, you know, right now, definitely not the guy that's gonna be the floor, general.
Get others involved.
Um, you know, and and and, you know, drive.
Ah, winning atmosphere from the point guard position is just gonna be a scorer.
Killian Hayes, On the other hand, um, has the potential to be in my in my view, has the potential to be, um, a Deron Williams type point guard.
and have that impact.
And if you couple if you play if you're patient enough to play Kobe White um, Killian Hayes, um Laurie Marketing Daniel Gafford Window Carper together.
You know, I think eventually that team can be, you know, a playoff caliber team.
Um, so I don't know if that's gonna be with on DSO say say, next year or three years, but I think you know, eventually, you know, good point guard, play and get that team to the playoffs.
What are your thoughts on the stories that scouts are not as high on Hayes as social media draftniks are? I think I think that smoke, man, I think I think I think all of that is like teams trying to, um, it's like it's like a NASCAR race, like, you know, in the beginning of the race, you know how drivers are always rubbing and drafting off each other in the beginning of the race.
Trying to trying to, you know, throw everybody off with the team.
Strategy is, I think that's what it is.
Um, e I'll take your word for it.
E, I think, say indicates of the Knicks.
The Knicks are gonna say and we're not interested in trading up right now because everybody is the same.
But you say that just because you don't want the metal balls or killing Hayes's stock to skyrocket close to draft time, when you do, come back and, you know, make a proposal.
So I mean, like, for instance, they say everybody is the same before through 14.
11 is the same 12 through 35 is the same.
And you play that because you just don't want to pay more than you know what? Um, you know what you feel like is decent value for a player because the team you're looking to trade with is looking to get everything they can for that asset.
And you're looking to pay the smallest amount impossible to get that asset.
So somebody shout out to number number 24 for the tip.
Appreciate that, bro.
I appreciate them that thumbs up to from flying high.
I I appreciate y'all staying patient with, you know, while I go through my whack a issue.
But eh? So what do you think? You remove all real quick about Tyree's Halliburton in that spot.
I hear that en ba and the 18th.
Love him, and if you think about, if they're sticking with, if you're if you're sticking with Levine right and and you have Kobe White, I think Halliburton is actually a great because he's a He's a ball mover.
He's, you know, he's a connector.
Like you could play Halliburton with those two.
And then you know, those two ball dominant players and he'll be there to spot up and spread the floor.
And they moved the ball around.
What do you think? Um, it's interesting.
I just, um I think we all have.
Ah, Well, not all.
I think the consensus for guys that that value the point guard position like a guy that can actually threaten the defense with the drive.
You know what I'm saying with something, Whether it be flat out foot speed, shiftiness or verticality.
And I don't know if Tom Rees Halliburton has any of that.
If he does, if he does, yeah, I was gonna say if I hadn't seen it.
You know what I'm saying to not to say he's but but at the same time at the same time, Chicago doesn't have, uh if she was facing because they have bigs that can shoot it.
You know, they have a lorry marketing that conduct in space.
The floor, they have a window.
When given the opportunity to shoot, he can he can shoot the ball.
You know, I'm saying his issue is is not staying healthy, You know what I mean? But saying out of all these teams at the top, right, that's the one team, the other team, the other.
The other team I could think of is, um is Atlanta, but that's the one team with ah ball dominant player who Halliburton will be a nice fit next to So just a thought room.
So let me ask you there.
Since since you brought that up, who is the player that you think the Chicago Bulls should pick in this spot? Okay, I got to I got I gotta should.
And I got who I think they will, who they should.
So So you have a So you have, ah, who they'll pick.
And then you have a best fit according to Rick.
So which one you want first? The Chicago Bulls pick? No, But you want my best pick? Or do you want the who? I think you're Chicago Bulls GM.
Who do you take if I'm the g m? I think I talked.
I just talked myself into it.
I think I would take a fiery Taliban.
Okay, over killing Hayes.
Yeah, all right.
But I think I think they're gonna take then Yeah, okay.
So So the deal with Denny here is great.
And I think I may have had that.
I have Chicago Bulls taking killing Hayes and Uncle freezes.
Best fit is killing Hayes.
I think that I think the the, um, the Denny at Visa Narrative, I think is, um I think it's forced.
I think it's like, e think Denny is the fourth year old guy like you, like Like everybody is forcing a year old guy into into the top five discussion, because when you when you want and I know he pay, I know he put up numbers late, right? And and it showed improvement.
And I think he's bigger than what we what we have been told, I think, and I don't know if he's 6768 I think he may be more like 69 Yeah, yeah, but we won't know until you know, the official measurables and all that stuff come out.
But, um e don't know how guinea fits.
To be honest with you, I just don't see how he fits into Well, you know what? So they have a new coach in front office, so you can so you can throw the tape from last year and the year before last out the window.
So if that's the guy they want to get, you know, we'll see.
You know, we'll see how how he fits in and that system.
You know, I've heard any to Chicago for quite some time.
Um, it was kind of like I don't know if you remember the Luca to the Phoenix Suns thing when, before the draft, where the guy ego or such and such, had tight connection with Luca, and he wants them getting the Phoenix Suns job.
But the Phoenix Suns wanna drafting DeAndre 18 instead.
Um, so it seems like one of those narratives Where, Where? You know, you know, all these ties from previous relationships and people's preferences kind of have us thinking that the guy's a perfect fit based off relationship and not necessarily what they do on the court, though, um, they'll make it fit on the court.
We have because they have the past relationship.
Um, e don't I don't know.
I don't know if if Denny is gonna outplay or getting Let me ask you, this is Did he, uh, 25 30 minutes a game rookie? Hey, probably is.
I mean, he's playing professional right now.
You're playing with, you know, former very low tier NBA players.
So, yeah, I think he could.
I mean, he's a guy that skilled.
He won't hurt you.
I don't think he has much high outside, but I feel like he could He could come in and play.
Um, I actually like your theory about the fact that, um, he's being forced, and I think that's applicable to a lot of the guys on here, because that's the nature of this draft, because these guys are and it's more superstars.
So the safe guys were being elevated, and then he's a safe guy.
I mean, he's not.
He's not a higher class guy, but he's the guy.
You see, they complain in the league for a long time.
So and and so I'm not questioning his skills.
I'm not questioning his his, um, handles in transition.
Um, I'm not questioning his transition, his vision, um, in transition.
I'm not, you know, debating his rebounding in his area.
I'm not debating any of that.
His his his growing three point shot.
What I'm saying is, is, um is it a fit for what Chicago wants to do? Um, with if you if you just go by Waas What? Um, I keep one calm Scott Brooks, but didn't happen.
Yeah, if you if you If you look at what Billy Donovan, you get Haze from what the three guard lineup people doing.
See? Right, right, Right.
I think the benefactor in The Benefactor in Bizarro World to me in this situation is Kobe White.
You know what I'm saying? Because, you know, you know that Levin is gonna get his, you know, can't, and I mean, he's gonna get his right.
Um e, I think if you're gonna try to do a three guard lineup, I think Halliburton is a better fit because hes is terrible.
I mean, as a rest, he played you know.
The one thing about Hayes is that he he improves.
Yeah, at a rapid at a rapid pace.
So But as the last time as the last time I've seen him off the ball is not his thing, he needs the ball in his hands.
And I don't think that's a good fit with in Chicago.
We can go into the next day, right? Chicago don't deserve this much time, right? Or because when the ball is now in his hands and face, take your upper.
Who's that? Yeah, yeah, basically, is a space.
Take her upper and when he doesn't have the ball.
And I know that's not a word, but whatever.
But then he didn't get They didn't have a lot to be playoff ball, but every ounce of tape that I've seen he has the ball in his hand on the ball is coming his way.
Yeah, but so So he like.
And then he shot terribly off ball.
But the sample size was low because he had the ball in his hands pretty much 90% of the time.
So Okay, so I don't even know if I can trust the off the ball shot being that bad because it was bad.
I think it's like in the teen, but I think like 30 something shot right? All right, I'm curious and it was clean.
Cleveland to Dio.
All right, so So let's So let's let's talk about Cleveland.
So eso the Cleveland Cavaliers? I have their team needs as being.
Where is it? So Cleveland, Cleveland, He needs Pete.
Wings wing there because they have.
They have depth at veteran Big Man.
So they have Kevin Love Chips and Thompson.
Andre Drummond, um is big.
Our situation is various Garland Collin ***ton.
Um um, they played Kevin Porter at the two and three.
I don't like Kevin Porter at the three long term at his size, even though the N B is going smaller, I think Kevin Porter, um, at at the to is probably the long term deal even in when they go three guard lineup.
So I think they need to get a bigger guard, um, to go to play, you know, with them.
And I think they don't think they have Dante Exum, right? Yeah, he was like, 3rd, 4th string.
He wasn't getting a much burn, as I thought and there was another guard there.
I can't remember who it is.
Is um yeah, I can't remember who the other guard, but anyway, they had another guard there that I feel like they should replace.
You know, I'm saying, with some youth, um, so I have them taking Devin vessel.
Um, and I know Knicks fans are like, Yeah, freezing, man, you get a, uh, but but what do you do? I mean, what do you do when you need when you don't need a big and you don't need a point guard? I mean, what do you do? Do you trade back, or do you just take the best wing player in the draft? Do they not need a big though? So I know I know love is under that ridiculous contract.
It's just uncomfortable, Believe is a free agent.
And they just traded for drumming drum in his home a one year deal.
But I assume since they created from there gonna be signing I actually I kind of like will be topping here.
Maybe, you know, local product, maybe.
Yeah, that's that's like when the when I was doing the mike.
I was like, You know what? This is the convenient and no knock on your the point I'm talking about in my mind now.
I was like, This is a convenient narrative, dude.
Play that dating.
You know what I'm saying? Getting drafted by the Cavs hometown.
But they still have that.
They still have Larry Nance Jr.
And they still have Kristin Thompson.
Just 15 Thompson in the camps already said that they're gonna work on the deal this offseason.
You know, I'm saying then they have Kevin Love, and then they have Andre Drummond.
So if you draft will be topping, what do you do? And with no be topping in a five man rotation, do you five man rotation? You know what I'm saying? Okay, so you know, this is us not having not having the benefit of inside information in the front offices.
But eyes is love back to the point where he's happy again because he wanted to get out.
He was He was done.
Yeah, with talent.
*** is he was in the comments section.
Is he loving again? It's Kevin love loving again.
Uh, I'm not I'm not for sure.
And in my mind, the perfect situation would be, um um the Cleveland Cavaliers trade.
Um, um Kevin Love to Portland for Nas little and like, draft picks and stuff Where port, Where Kevin love can go be the this this stretch for the small ball five.
The veteran championship guy helping them get over the hump.
You know what I'm saying? My only deal is Portland's always hurt.
And if you add Kevin, love to the mix, you're like and another guy that's, you know, in that mix.
You know, kids just hurt.
Love is hurt little or just hurt.
Um, c j playing through injuries.
You know, what I'm saying is like, you know, how much can one team take it? Basically, Um, but I think Devin vassal hair, though, um, allows you to go ***ton Porter vessel love Drummond about about a curl.
Um, I just can't see.
I just can't see him in a situation where that team that stretched So they're a team that that struggles for offense and stretches just like the next.
Well, you know it.
Just like most ah, lot of young teams do struggle for offense and stretches like when their best score goes off the floor.
You know, they can't figure out a way to get easy shot for, um, another guy.
You know what I'm saying? Um, so it Z, you know, and then Plus, I think Coco is too long.
Obviously, if he was like, if he was ah, if he was a baseline guy, if he was like an average offensive guy and a great defensive guy, then I could see him, you know, doing you in Cleveland and then, you know, working on his offensive and potentially turning into a Jake Robert type.
It may be eventually something better, you know, over the years, but right now I don't see him as a guy.
I think it's e think he's It's five on five on one end and four or five on the other end is basically what I'm getting well to across credit.
He can handle the ball that can play makes, so he's not a complete waste on the offensive end.
I think they got a lot of guys on Cleveland.
They want to shoot the ball.
Many don't want to play defense so I can see a coral there but about I e.
So you have faith.
You have faith in his playmaking right now.
Right now, I do have a role, but right now Oh, yeah. Right now? Yeah.
Right now he's e have faces.
Playmaking. I don't know.
How much? I mean, he could do a little bit a little bit.
Um, he's a good decision maker.
He's a great finisher, right? Oh, yeah.
So I could see it.
I'm to my two choices.
There is a core or topping and the top and thing is really just like you said, the local product thing.
And I'm thinking maybe they tryto let let Kevin love free.
Uh, we'll pick up yet.
All right, that was That's our we're actually doing Something happened.
I don't know what happened.
All right? Yeah.
And and so with the pick here in Cleveland, art basically, you know, have them going.
Devin baffle, um, here as as their three and the wing.
And, you know, with the with, um with the mindset that Darius Garland is a second unit point guard and Kevin Porter Jr is the future of the two position on DSO.
Let's see Akron.
So that means So that means your point is ***ton.
And and so you do that because you know Kevin Porter Jr is multi dimensional.
They can do can do a lot of stuff.
Um, you know, I think he was probably one of the steal of the draft last year.
I think it had to do a lot with off course stuff.
People not liking some things that may have been in his, um, circle, whatever, but not basketball related.
Um, so I think, I think.
And it also solves a deal.
Where you where now you can have Kevin Porter Jr defended points and ones and twos, and you can have Devin vassal defend ones twos and threes as opposed to, um, important having to guard everybody.
Whoever the best player is, Porter Jr has thio, you know, guard that person.
All right? I was thinking of coral there, Uh or, uh, yeah, so that you know, because ***ton Garland k p j Love all those guys want to shoot.
Yeah, they took, They took that kid, Will er to a couple of years ago, but not last year, but so I could see that actually getting picked that is getting picked the head of a car? No, no, I don't think Vessel will be taken before the Cora.
He's like such a like A eh? NBA scouts like Wet Dream or something like Like they always have those guys.
That and then like like they just don't do it.
Well, I could see they could take a coral or will be topping will be topping.
Those are my choices because, like, I don't think Kevin loves like, you know, have you should have me in art because we think of like too much, eh? So why would you? So why would you go overtopping when you have Larry Jr Larry? Because he's because he's very next year.
He's not because he's Larry Nance Jr.
Yeah, and so the reason the reason why I say that is because you have your big rotation of Andre Drummond, Tristan Thompson, Kevin Love, Obie Topping Larry Nance Jr That's like five guys you wanna get minutes to e with like a recap, um, is real quick.
You can get a recap of your Okay, so? So we have So I have on guy.
Let them recap to in just just just just for the sake.
So I have, um, Minnesota going, um, Anthony Edwards E have I have Golden State going, um, they one, uh, I have Charlotte going the miller the ball on at Chicago.
Okay, Only he kick clean hair a and Cleveland going David vessel.
So you want to recap y'all? My If you have one board Mike Edwards Weitzman ball, Um, or I think I put ah, Danny a veggie Asia.
And then five, I put I'll be talking.
You have Denny going for okay, Okay.
I have that too.
She But that's that's different.
So that's That's too baby Vinnie in Chicago.
E wouldn't take him.
If it was May, I wouldn't I would take probably.
Hey, I'll do what you did.
I would take days.
Probably that for Chicago, right? Yeah, but like you missed it, though.
I talked myself into Tyreese in Chicago.
Yeah, because for a couple reasons, because I'm hearing Wasserman kind of swayed me, and I've heard of a couple of places where a lot of scouts like Tyreese more.
Uh, because of the fact that you know, this this draft are so up a noun that they like the like, the high floor guys, those guys being elevated.
So But if I was, if you're trying to do, ah, three guard lineup if you're trying to make trying to get white to play alongside Levine, I don't think you want Hayes, because Ace can't do nothing at the moment without the ball in his hands.
Right? And Tyreese is the one guy that those two white and Levin can go crazy.
Hey, as long as as long as the team takes tyreese, Allibert and e don't want him to e Oh, go ahead.
Chicago, do you think Is there any other option for for Charlotte? Aside from ball, that has to be ball.
Uh, you're asking me, right? Um, yeah, they could go Conwell.
Can you see Jordan do that? Mhm.
But it was not like a combo wasn't bad at college player.
He was pretty good. 16 and eight.
Yeah, yeah, but But I'm gonna tell you the reason why I don't see them doing That is because a few years ago, they took a kid named Bismack beyond right.
And I thought at you know, Underside Center was gonna be like, you know, the wave and a lot of people did at the time.
And my man and they got burnt really bad would be on both and e like that e Congo is way better.
Probably five times better than that.
Dude, you know what I'm saying? But it z one of those deals where you like, you know, Should we try this again? You know, I could see it is gonna be like, either.
Like the best best center available.
Like, I think that was assuming.
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah.
So what you are talking about Hey, that's a dirty and that ****, man, you're talking.
I'm talking about, you know, Pan e o a.
Atlanta So number 70.
So Atlanta, Atlanta, pick six.
Right. So here's the thing with Atlanta.
So they have trade Young Kevin Herder am reddish.
What's the other guy? Clint Capela, Clint Capela beyond 300 Clint Capela.
And so they have.
They have represented an area Tiu Tiu make the playoffs at you Don't know what spot it is that they need to really one that they really need to address.
Personally, I think when guard is the position they need to address, because when trade young comes off the floor, their offense goes in the tank.
You know what I'm saying? But did you back The backup point guard this time is the question.
That's the That's the question I asked.
So, um, here, here is where I just made a bold decision.
Um, instead of no point guard this time.
No, they're not going.
They're not coming back up. ****er.
I think I think they might.
I think they're in the market for little Williams.
E think you're gonna take Isaac? According right here.
They got a lot of money e that.
They could go for a little Williams in the free agency, so I don't think they would go back a point guard.
Yeah, they confined.
Yeah, basically, basically, what you're saying is they confound a backup point guard off the street, but here, they need to add and legit.
Blessed best player available on, right? Yeah, right.
Yeah, I could see you them taking vassal Socorro, or you guys had Denny available to.
So, yeah, Danny is still available, so Yeah, I could take Will you put vessel going already so I could see your core or Jenny? Well, um so So what benefit does does Did he bring to the team every hunter for minutes? Um, I was just potential with this kid.
Yeah, e think he's got I think he's got hot.
Yeah, you can make plays, you know, he doesn't just have to be trade young making plays for the team.
So why would you want the concentration you get credit for when you just traded for? Um, yeah, yeah, I would.
You trade? Why would you drive accountable when you just traded for a ****in power? And I think they still have the I think they still have that young raw kid. Thio.
They still have Dwayne Dedmon.
And they also have What's his name? Fernando.
Fernando. Yeah, that's right.
And they also have the other guy who got Clint Capela.
He's getting paid till 2023.
Collins, Fernando, Deadman.
I gotta try reason because that Tyree's kinda tyreese can play with with Young, that za small backcourt like I know he's 65 but like their week.
So yeah, you mean Yeah, but I don't think I don't think I don't think Tyreese is a guy you need to worry about.
Even starting at the point that they have.
They have wings.
They have reddish reddish steps up.
Reddish would probably be the guy there.
They got Hunter.
Oh, I'm giving them Tyree's on my board.
E gave him a court as well.
Yeah, and I see why you go Halliburton here, even though I I picked a call myself, I think.
And so the just to establish something.
I picked a coral here not because I think he's a contributor, but I think if he unlocks everything, he could be bona fide NBA superstar.
If everything is unlocked because he has, like, the raw skills, like the super athleticism, he already brings defense to the table.
He already has, you know, some handle that he could, you know, play make a little bit and such.
But if he if he gets the opportunity, um, to flourish on the offensive end and the defense event.
I think you have a hell of a three way up to a player in a car.
Oh, I think this is.
This is my Grand slam swing right here for the Hawks.
You know, just maybe trying to find a superstar.
Because at the end of the day, if he flops, they still have camera edition DeAndre women s.
So I also have another reason for Tyreese, By the way, they're like one of the worst three point shooting teams in the league, despite having Trae Young.
Yeah, so I wouldn't give him a call.
So So who picked seven? The Detroit thats where hes goes on my boy.
All right, so killing him gone.
All right, So I have them taking, uh, daily every visa.
Yeah, with the with the best fit actually being will be topping.
And the reason why I have many of these they're here is because I had killing go to Chicago, so he's not left on my boy.
But I have Denny.
Did he go in here where you have where he can develop into the three slash four playing her There you go ahead.
Huh? No, they don't. I don't know if they have a three.
They don't have a seco.
Oh, yeah, Yeah, yeah, Yeah.
He's like a He's like a knocks.
He's like a 34 shoot from the outside.
Plus, they got a Christian would if they resign him.
Yeah, I would play.
I could see them going, would Mboya and Denny, you know, I'm saying e that, like the Christian would.
Yeah, I don't not Christian would as much, you know, But I know some people like like not Christian, Would I? Don't they go? They go over, like overboard.
Like it's e tell you why I tell you why.
Because they take and they do this with a lot of players.
So they you like Christian would.
And then if you ever criticized the kids so they conflate the two together when to me, actually, all knicks based on when they're in our uniforms.
So I don't care if it took you 15 years to figure out how to shoot.
But if you know how to shoot with your wearing orange and blue, you're good with me.
Yeah, they But I hope people are probably you know why the hell did we get Allan Houston? E.
What? Yeah, all right.
There's a difference, right? If I have to sit there and watch you for six years trying to figure out how to play, I'm That's different than you coming in as a free agent and you're ready to go something.
So So it's not the same thing.
I'm sorry, man. I'm sorry.
I just thought, Well, Art put the chat that a cardinal, maybe Justice Winslow.
Yep, But here in player, any player like a coral can go. Either way.
He could be just Winslow.
Or he could be quiet.
But I think it's more.
It's safer to say Justin Winslow than quiet because I was a fire.
He's like he's Yeah, And plus, Kawai is a freak like he got.
I read where his hands like proportionately or the size of personality.
Chuck put Tony on.
He got in his wingspan, his wing span like 73 or something like that.
So he was a free coming up. He's a freak.
He's a freak, you freaking human beings.
So it just cracks me up.
Whenever some defensive guy comes out that like he could be the next co I.
It could be the next butler, maybe, but not the next Kawai.
If Hawaii's dude, he's not a big on the cloth for a reason.
His hands air Ridiculous.
Yeah, yeah, usually do.
For such big hands Have difficulty shooting.
Yeah, and handling.
Yeah, people do all that well.
Is different, but in terms of of the seven pick man Detroit getting to me.
To me, Detroit getting Dinny is like them swinging for the fences, hoping they get the All Star euro.
You know what I mean? Like and it's not even All Star.
It's not even your old but the all star player that revives their franchise as a person, as opposed to, you know, the safe play going and getting a guy that maybe, like, you know, 17 points and 10 rebounds, as you know as the high water mark for their career.
If they get Denny and then he's a stock.
So if they get Didi and Didi is something like Luca, Detroit wins.
If they if Benny is, is something just, you know, a good eh? NBA player.
Detroit wins, but a lot of us don't see bus potential in Denny.
I mean, I don't At least I don't see no good either, because I don't think he's gonna have the ball in his hands like that.
So you have a You have obeyed topping.
Why? Why don't when they take over Topping and just let Christian would walk? Because they have Blake Griffin.
That building right there A walk? That's the milkman.
Choice that choice.
Not a great place.
So the reason why so they have.
They have Blake Griffin, and they have a huge void in in the backcourt, right? Like they wanna add and some playmakers there.
But do you do you take do you Do you gamble on Carol Lewis Jr here, You know? No, not the way you're not the way your board fell, but our denies board.
Kelly and Hayes is still available.
So I would I would I would kill you in here.
Even though i e could be biased and just put some weird name in here, just so be it.
But that's not well.
That would be a hey, well, in Chill out, man.
Just a Let it rockets coming.
You know, it's coming.
Just give us a chance to get get through Detroit.
Like So here's the thing with Detroit.
I think Detroit has limited the Detroit have limited draft picks.
This draft? Yeah.
Let me have one draft pick. And that's seven.
Eso I think they have to make the safe play here because, you know, if you like with the Knicks, that if you if you if you swing for Knox and knocks his the bus at least you got Mitchell Robinson in the second round.
You know what I mean? It was a swing swing, though.
Nobody knew what he was was Metro Robinson.
When we talk, that was a swing.
Well, e was really was a like, remember, he wasn't like the McDonald's all American game.
I think you know.
So e was somebody? Yeah, a e actually.
Like whoa e could play until summer league.
But eso I have him going there, you'll have killing and going to Detroit.
Eso next step is before we move on threes.
So you said that was the point you made about.
They only have one pick.
So? So let's say they only have using that logic.
If you have one pick who's the super safe pick right there if you're trying not Thio, if you're trying to get at least a double or something, I go with many overkill.
I think Obie Obie is more safe.
Yeah, Well, look at the griffins.
Always hurt like I don't get it.
And then and then Christian was a free agent.
Yeah, he could walk anywhere.
You go anywhere you want, so that might give them leverage.
I don't see what leaving Detroit go, man, you know, And And so the thing is, is not that I think don't think Christian was is a bad player.
That's not what I'm saying, because I think he's an excellent of all the players we talked about all summer long, including Damian Lillard and other dudes.
When you look at who impacts, winning the most Christian would impacted winning the most for a team that was absolutely trashed.
Eso that lets you know that just let you know if you add him toe other guys that when you may be looking at a playoff contender, if everybody is pulling their own weight in terms of winds and making winning plays.
Then you have a playoff contender.
In my opinion, you know, it always comes down the money.
And then also, I think the guy, the guy that was impossible for bringing him to Detroit, that guy's gone.
Okay, so that's so that's one connection.
You know, I could be joining straws here, but at the end of the he's a free agent and and then what? Detroit wanna bet on Blake Griffin staying healthy? I don't think they're gonna bet on Blake Griffin staying healthy, but at the same time, I think they're gonna be I know they're gonna be It's gonna be who wants him the most.
I think that's always gonna come down because somebody's gonna over pay.
It could either be us great to be done mhm.
So I don't buy the whole thing.
I don't see him leaving.
Detroit is gonna be.
He's probably He's probably the best value in the market this off season so way.
The whole of Lucan our way is the free agent.
In 1993 said No, start over.
So shaping 93 you mean start over by doing adultery, pistol rebuild or you're talking about trading.
Are you talking about trading away Blake Griffin and the vets and starting your franchise? Okay, Alright.
So Shapey 93 says, um, the Pistons should just do a complete rebuild Griffin and and others and doing a rebuild.
Now, if that's what you want to do right here, then I think I'll be topping.
E don't know or you have Camrose but Congress and play also.
Because Detroit Detroit isn't a weird situation where they're half rebuilding.
Have trying to create a winner at the same time because some of the guards they rolled out this year you won't be able to pick them out of a police line up.
You know what I'm saying? Some kid named Brown, some other people, some other pieces.
I think right now, but they're looking to do it may be hit that reset button, find them a franchise player in the draft.
Well, I could tell you tell you the words from the GM.
His words were I quote, they're trying to retool, not rebuild.
Uh, yeah, He'll be gone in two years.
You could retool when you have you could retool when you already have talent.
When you already have talent, then you're like, you know what? I have Devin Booker.
Um, let me find a guy that I can plug in whenever for when Devin Booker is not on the court, but they don't have them in book.
They have Lukin on e mean they don't have.
They don't have Anthony Davis.
They have Blake Griffin.
You know what I mean? Eso his words.
So e, appreciate that quote, though, I because I didn't I didn't I had never heard you kind of have to say it, though, like, you didn't even comment on Christian work because he was, like, always a free agent.
I don't know if you know, you think in a place like Detroit I know New York.
You kind of have to double talk like that.
But you think in a place like Detroit, they would freak out.
If you say you build, they don't get nobody in the E.
So you're ready to move on to Thio? All right, So we owe So So here's my thing, man.
Um, trying to be is unbiased.
You know, I am Ronnie Smith on that line like seven times eso So? So here's the thing with the next I have the next taking on Yucca Congo, and it hurts my heart because we have Mitchell Robinson.
Right? So, um, the deal is I think the talent is too much toe pass, Even with Carol Lewis and Tyreese Halliburton still available on my board.
I even looked at at the kid Patrick Williams and Coal Anthony and I thought to myself, um without trade Patrick Williams and Coal Anthony for Anelka.
So that makes it makes a con.
Will the definitive pick at this point, Mom and and Uncle freezes best fit is Anucha Congo.
Overall be topping over Carol Lewis over Halliburton over Patrick Williams over Aaron D.
Smith over Coal Anthony.
I wouldn't say he's the best fit, though.
I don't know who else.
Jeff on your based on your board, I think there would be a riot among the fans if they passed on.
I'll be topping today.
We're gonna It's gonna be a right when they see this video because Chuck said I didn't have pants on for one s A.
Secondly, I passed over.
I passed over a point guard.
So it's gonna be a gonna be a riot regardless.
What happens? Eso Yeah, man, e a good clarity is an asset.
So even if ultimately we don't even keep them, Um, he's a He's a good treating piece.
Or Mitch or Mitch becomes a treating piece.
Uh, you know me.
I don't I don't fall in love, So yeah, I took a home movie.
So all three of us to go calm already? No, I would.
I have Kevin back there Don't blossom.
Oh, that's what We're still in your board.
So why don't you have them go to 77 to Detroit, have killing and going to the Detroit? Oh, yeah, that's right.
That's right. My heart.
But I have killing guns to Detroit, man.
Okay, so So I have and And let me let me let me preface or not Preface.
But let me say this another point of seeing a multi pronged approach to the number eight.
So the Knicks have multiple picks, right? And so I feel like if you get a condo here, you could get comparable point guard talent at 27 or use 27 38 to trade back up into the draft to get comparable point guard talent.
Yeah, I think it's I think it's risk.
I think it's, um it kind of stinks, but because risky I don't know if you will get starting caliber at 27.
Okay, It could you could.
It just all depends.
I would How? It falls.
But you may, or you may not.
There could be a run on on the point guards in the teams in early twenties.
And so and so you know again point.
Anybody else thinking to myself? Is Killian Hayes and Zeke Nagy comparable to cognac accountable And maybe a Tyrell Terry? Yeah.
That's really either either of those two combinations outside up for but Tyrell Terry's never fall in the 27.
Yeah, people moving them up lottery.
Yeah, but I'm thinking 27 38 together.
It was a month set.
Trade out together. Yeah.
Who wants Who wants to be from the teams? Want to go down to 27? Maybe Miami.
Boston? Well, no, Boston's at 14 also is probably gonna also gonna look to trade up because 03 picks is not gonna make their roster.
Yeah, right, Right.
So they have a right now, so they have a glut right now.
And then Boston doesn't just have three first round picks.
They also have ah, for a second.
So they have four draft picks in this draft and me.
So treating trading down to save money no longer really is applicable.
Wants to get this far down the price.
You not say how much money? No.
I know people like I don't see how you're going to train back up in the draft without start to start talking about future picks.
Mhm, Right? I think I asked chucking, um, Chuck in freezing this yesterday.
Would you like, should the Knicks look at taking Denver's pick and taking will Barton's contract Mm, eyes in the 22.
Yeah, Any? Yeah.
I think that's more likely.
Is getting one of these teams to give you a contract for their, you know, taking on abstract for their pick, then 27 38 getting you anything? Yeah, I agree.
Eso So? So I go a Congo here.
So who do you guys take? Care E for the night.
So topping toppings gone on my board.
So it's top toppings got in mind too.
So only you have to explain to the next fans why they didn't take overtopping.
Yeah, Yeah, that's on you.
I'm watching my hands Eso eso Here's the thing.
So here's the thing.
So Chuck's a part time comedian, Okay? Secondly, and secondly, I did a video is have a video on on our on the YouTube channel.
And then I gotta get you to come over to YouTube to man the the I don't have as many tech issues when I do YouTube, but, um but I have a video of that says that athletic fans how maney power forwards does once he need.
I mean, we legit talk power forward all the time.
Like like our offseason needs.
People were talking about getting Gallinari, Jeremy Grant and David for times.
And then drive will be chopping and a You signed Julius Randle.
I mean, how many powerful is this one? Is there a law against, you know, not signing or drafting any other player e a counter argument about taking over topping e mean about not taking on the topping.
So let's pretend.
Let's pretend they don't mean time.
I'm pretty sure they're gonna pretty sure Gibson is safe.
Do we all agree? Yeah, right.
So, Gibson, Mitch Random in the Congo.
You have No, You have no shooter in the front court, right? No.
Well, my scenario, I'm definitely looking to move random like one of those bigs or two.
If if we drafted Okano, we're definitely moving.
Like Randall or Mitchell.
Alison, One of the things I want to avoid is making a pick that forces you to make to have to make a move right, because there's no guarantee you're gonna be ableto make the move, right, So Yeah.
So So you're saying you know why draft accountable here when that makes four ships to trade Mitch, right? No, you have to look for somebody for Randall, or basically, basically, you can't go into the season with those four.
But now I think those guys aren't movable.
Accept Taj, maybe.
And I think I think cause it's coming back.
So e need away them, and then we like giving a What does he beat? But he didn't want allow you to do that.
He didn't want me.
Oh, I think it's a weight.
I think you could wait.
Just pick him up on waivers.
I think the money we ain't got nothing to worry about with regards the money.
People worry about the money too much.
Oldham got it. Yeah.
E spend that nine on something else Getting nine.
Yeah, I think it gets 9.5.
Well, okay, well, I think he's whether we waive him, he's coming back, so I don't argue.
He's I know he's coming back. So Yep.
S so what do you think about the Washington Wizards? Like, what are the Washington Wizards gonna do at nine? Because you're not going small forward? Yeah, they had.
We have tomorrow read much more of the powerful, right? Um, combo, I think he was like, combo.
You either one. Yeah.
So they like Rick still has a condo available.
So the boy I do I got a coral available to Wow, Carl Walther nine.
It is what it is.
It is what it is, bro.
I'm telling e mean from a from A from just a basketball fan perspective.
I think this draft seems to be a little bit deeper.
Then what? I think the mainstream media is saying, I think the narrative maybe just that.
Like, Yeah, I'm not saying it's full of stars, like, you know, bonified Hall of Famers.
I do think that the overall death Oh, you know what I'll say.
I think this draft is a B student like it's not a plus student is not the you know it's not, You know, the salutatorian.
You know what I'm saying? Which you only get one of those.
But I think overall, I think the class is like a B rated class like Oh, that is definitely e mhm.
What's up, Emma? Yeah, Yeah, my man.
Some are saying in the building Shout out the seven saying What's happening? Man was good.
So who do you have? So who do you who do you have? Um, going? I have obeyed copping here.
Ah, I've Devon vessel.
Vessels to 10 to eat.
You know, it's a nine tonight.
E going on your board, right? Yeah, he's on E.
Yeah, we just flip it.
So I have a coral here.
You have a car? Oh, at nine.
Yeah, I think I think we're all I think we all have guys that slid a little bit further than way, do I? I don't think I have any, I guess. Um, Corals.
And I gotta Congo Congress still available.
So what? I know.
Yeah, they need a So how does your pick impact the Washington Wizards? It helps with defense.
Their defense is terrible.
Defensive team in the league, you know, like, yo Frank dropped 20 and 10 on them.
Oh, it's close his clothes.
You need to finish E.
That made Charles the night right there, Right.
20. And trained against my mommy.
Got no retort to that.
So All right, so So next up is the big sons at 10.
I have them taking, and I know you're gonna smack me here, but I have them taking care of Louis Union at 10.
I have tyreese Halliburton, go in there a while.
Wow, that is that is very, very smart, man.
And so my uncle freezes.
Best fit is Tyree's Halliburton.
Just, like, just like to pay you pick.
But I don't think they'll I think e think the Phoenix Suns fans are gonna be less open to a good basketball player and more open to a guy that reminds them, maybe of of, um, dollar tree version of Kevin Johnson.
Hey, I don't know if you remember Kevin Johnson and that Yeah, you're talking about.
Are you talking about Kyra Lewis? Okay, e second, I took, like, Tyree's caliber E no.
Well, well, the sun's air closer to be being a playoff team.
So they're gonna need a guy who could come in and play now.
So that's why a sense is that about what you just said freeze about then, being concerned about the draft keeping my last year, they took Kim Johnson, so they you know, they can't be shocked.
So I think e okay with whoever they pick.
But But they had the best starting five in the entire MBA.
Yeah, with he just get to Plato.
You bray Rubio Booker Uh, a k A salary dump? Yeah.
Not not good Yeah, way Can't wait to get rid of them.
Yeah, they can't wait to get home.
They want they just wanna give them for free because they got so much they think they're feeling very generous.
But you know, they have the best starting lineup in the entire NBA.
In terms of that rating school, they don't need much.
I do understand the your pick, the Kyra Lewis pick.
But I think when you get to this point when you get at this, this this'll level, that's when you start taking Deepa because you'd see me stacked like Denver has been doing.
I'm thinking of Congo because he's the big.
He's the highest rated player on my board.
A kangaroo as a back up to 18.
Or you could play. You can play.
You can play if they wanna go big to compete with the Lakers.
You can play a problem with 80.
Um, if you if you don't and if you are already is already there, I think 18 would probably play the fall and Congo plays the center.
Yeah, in terms of in terms of Who's defending who? Yes, yeah, and then 18.
Likes to shoot jumpers, right? Right.
And he started extend out for the three.
I gotta be nasty.
You know e collingwood.
Breaking down defense's and kicking up to Cam Johnson, Devin Booker or Mikhail Bridges for threes.
I mean, and And also, I just honestly think Monty Williams has thrown his hat in the ring as a top seven.
He's been there.
He's been that. My Yeah.
Yeah, because because the dude God**** next man today interview him.
Yeah, and he took a bunch of cats that look like they didn't fit together and made them play.
And they went eight.
No, in a bubble when everybody knew it was a drag race to the end of the season.
And they went eight.
No, I mean that they would have had a better record if that if they were able to play with that five for longer stretch.
But, you know, suspension injuries suspended.
Got hurt in that Booker.
You know, you know, Rubio was hurt.
U s because Giovanni Carter one that playing a lot more minutes than I think he deserves.
And if it's like Sugar Lewis in that in that role, I think you probably get even mawr out of their offense.
Which is insane to even think about, you know, because Jevon Carter is a way Jevon Carter is a upside defensive minded point guard, but it's actually a good defender, though.
He's a threat, though.
Yeah, he used a before.
I'm just I just I just e that anyways anyways, so that's 11.
San Antonio Spurs Spurs Um, so right here.
I think the perfect player fits the perfect system team.
So right here I have Tyreese Halliburton going to the San Antonio Spurs.
I'm I think it's, I think it's It's a match made in heaven.
I love the John Murray, you know, But John Murray doesn't bring offense.
He's Oh, my God, he's a high upside athletic defensive player.
He's injury prone.
Um, I think the I think Tyree's Halliburton is the play right here.
I think it's it's not just narrative, I believe.
Smart guy goes to us a team or franchise that values, um, substance over flash.
Uh, I took Jaylin Smith here mhm.
Huh? Dude, you you are a gambler by nature.
You know, they got I think they're gonna start looking to the future.
So I'm ironically, I think e think they're gonna get They will be the old Man River squad of roles in Gay and LaMarcus Aldridge.
And look to rebuild, we could draft.
Um, you know, start with Halliburton.
Um, you know, they have Lani Walker.
They have, um, Derek White.
They have Jonathan Johnson, baby.
It towards the end of the season.
He was like, ah, lottery pick, like most of the year and then just went so yeah, yeah, eso So what do you think? About What do you think that bad? What you think of that backcourt of those four guys that I mentioned? Like, who would start and and who the backups do you play Kelvin Johnson over, um, Derek White and lining Walker.
Um, do you Do you have Halliburton start with John Murray coming back from injury? Mm.
Um, So what do you have? You have So they have Aldridge, obviously center really get power forward.
That small forward.
Derek White, Derek White.
And there's not a murder or they go.
Would they go Lani Walker? No, Because they might go Derek White back.
Spurs like athletes.
You know, um, yeah, or do you go a win here? Is there? Ah, wing that you like Patrick Williams? Maybe your boy Naysmith.
You love their three point shooters.
Yeah, they do need three point futures.
I would go either Naysmith or Patrick Williams here, and I'm tryingto figure out who I would have him take.
So you basically we wanna flip the coin here.
Is it Is it Is it that close or or are you thinking like one guy has more long term potential? One guy plays right away.
I think I would go with with Patrick Williams because he is a 34 And they got a lot of young wings and guards on the Naismith, despite despite the fact that he probably the best shooter among them, right? Maybe potentially, he might get lost in the show.
Whereas I think Patch William get opportunity to play.
So I've made up my mind.
I'm going. Patrick Williams.
All right, All right.
e was either doing Patrick Ewing.
Okay, so but But he told Jaylin Smith.
Yeah, I'm taking the upside play here.
Okay, um, so that leaves us with the Sacramento Kings at 12.
I think their team strength is they have, um, Playmakers and buddy Hail the Aaron Fox.
Um, and the other young shooting guard they have, Uh, yeah.
So they have initiators guys that can get you some offense.
Um What what? I what? I don't think they have, um, is defense and an overall team that, um and the reason why I say that is because they when when injuries hit them, they just couldn't recover.
They didn't have enough depth to stay afloat in the west, off eso I have them taking.
Where is that mental? I have them taking Josh screen.
The human guard from Arizona, Uh, is a reach.
It was one that was crazy, but I really like that.
Yeah, I like him, too.
So So here's the reason why I I what? I felt compelled eso a few years ago.
Um, they signed.
Um, that would be to offer sheet be four years. Whatever.
Whatever a million dollar thing.
And and so in my mind, Josh Green is conduct like that type player, almost except we're we're except where Zach Lavine is a great shooter.
Josh Green is less of that, but he's Mawr defensive.
So now you have a guy that could defend God's 12 and three for for Sacramento, where you nobody's not.
Fox is not, and I don't know about the young kid, the other about Banovic.
I don't know if he can, but but I know from watching games that these Cats will play defense in the backcourt.
So and Josh Green at least gives them some deep.
And, oh, yeah, I like I like jazz screen, but I think that's a little high from okay.
Like he reminds me like one of those, like Tyler hero Clay Thompson picks like kind of players, right? But, uh, I'm thinking I'm thinking Patrick Williams for May Patrick Williams over here.
Yeah, I got the Smith because Bogdanovich is a free agent and in the hill has choose with the front office, right? He's on the trading block, so I consider Naysmith bigger healed, right? You would put them at small forward, right.
You could play him at the shooting guard order. Small forward.
To develop his ball handling, um, to be better, but he'll he'll needed to do the same.
Not 20 ancient league.
So, yeah, that's who I have there.
And that kind of gives them leverage in trying Thio, find a find a deal for her body heal May.
And they're on the phone talking, buddy, you know, like, you know, give me a first round pick for buddy.
I'm like, No, I could just take a Ronnie Smith.
Yeah, a eight for buddy.
Hell, yeah, we do that. Some of the Knicks.
Yeah, we do that, e uh I mean, I would do it, but I'm trying to think they only do that to save money because they're trying to trying to re sign on the back down on this, right? Yeah, I think I think we might be taking this.
First of all, I just read that the capital probably gonna say the same.
Okay, that's one thing.
And I think the whole saving money thing is going overboard because dudes, we're talking about getting way for nothing.
just because they're trying to save money.
Thio, That doesn't make any sense.
It's like it's like something Mills will do.
Why would you trade trade grade just to create cash space without knowing that you can get a frequently Yeah.
You could end up with nothing you could end up with no break and no fragment for you.
Yeah, like I like.
I keep telling them just because somebody is expendable, accessible doesn't mean that they're trying to give them to you for free.
So e Oh, yeah, you could mean still has value, even if they want to get rid of.
Even even what happened here is that they got success in the bowl.
And then also, that might be a dangerous thing to do to base your off season plans on what happened in the bubble.
Because that was that was a weird situation, right? So you already know that gray on your starting lineup? You're the best in the entire MBA.
Oh, I don't This whole wanted to get rid of arthroscopic knee surgery.
So you just cleaned up his name.
So? So e think we're getting out of hand with this premise that teams were trying to unload.
Say, yes, they are.
But I don't think they will be there.
Just gonna be just giving stuff away for four picks in a week. Dr.
Um, so we want to move on to the sacramental thing Is is crazy.
We could talk Sacramento for four hours and still not figure out a solution for them.
They've been a grease fire solution.
Then to give us a pick for Carrie.
That makes everything.
They'll fix their problems.
Way gave up a second wary pick for Perry Waksal mode.
Give us a vote in Paris like the other night.
At least it's a 12 of Scott Perry and out of 12 for talent.
Eso eso The New Orleans pelicans are on the clock with us.
I have their team.
Strength is being eyes having a young core.
And there we team need is experience, which they probably can't get out of the draft.
Um, I have them taking at at this point, Patrick Williams with Uncle freezes.
Best fit being tyreese.
You want me to go? Yeah.
Eso This is another team that okay.
Yeah, So whenever I see a team like this, I just do needs out the window and just they're the type of team like, and I'll go back and use my Denver reference with the M P J pick and the bull bull pick.
When you get to that, you're just tryingto you're trying to land the home run and I give a Margie Hampton wow mm eso Is that the best fit? Or is that the New Orleans general manager selecting the best player he's going? Potentially Don't even think it's necessary.
That's all potential pick.
So that's the process is both been on the block.
Um, so has a true holiday, right? Eso I'm thinking guard.
I mean, the I think the center spot, the power forward spot, the small forward spot those a lot eso the only the only places that you know that somebody can come in and possibly earn some significant playing time is in the guard spot.
J Hampton has the highest outside of the guys loves.
And if he pans out, you don't you know, ball and and or you can bounce.
Yeah, my only my only drawback to that is s o.
I have Patrick Wings here, and I think it's strictly a swing for the fences.
Play like I hope this dude turns into Koala Leonard.
Winston is basically why I picked them here.
And but yeah, that Brendon anger mhm.
If he turns into Kawai, is gonna be Kawai off the bench.
I know this, but to But to your point, though, you know, no matter who you pick here, no matter who you pick, this person is coming in fighting for minutes behind the kid.
You know, I'm saying, like you mentioned RJ Hampton.
What about Nikki? Nikki will walk.
Alexander Alexander Walker Kill Walker.
Member is Josh Hart.
Those guys are not They're not Brandon Ingram and and not sign you.
Can you Can you have a chance to get minutes? You're not taking minutes away from Brandon Ingram.
You're not taking minutes away from Zion.
You're probably not taking minutes from Hayes at this point.
Um, I'm taking energy player here.
I'm taking precious to chew.
Uh, you keep that that that z a.
That's a building.
A roster pick type thing.
You know, that's like he's not for him.
he's gonna have a role.
But like I said, this this team so stacked Ah, lot of times when they when you get to this point, you just start just trying to get swing for the fences.
And if you land on, then you have another trade piece or hey, I'm gonna try.
Hey, when we go to Nick Summer League Invade in Vegas.
Um, Rick, we are not bringing art dog because this dude like the gamble that I'm telling you your gamble up hotel money e o like risk be ****ed.
Your e We're around here.
Maybe a good and you play for them? No, I'm saying.
But so, So precious.
Precious is the type of player.
Like if he develops any offensive skills, he can be all star because the energy level he brings to the table and he's an athlete.
You know what I'm saying? But at the same time, if he doesn't develop any of that stuff, you know what I'm saying? You know how far is energy going to take? You know what I'm saying? A some ball handling ability for its size.
And he played center after Wiseman left.
So He's got position.
Make sure right down before I forget who goes where.
I'm freestyling with anybody.
So So, the Boston Celtics on a clock and I have their strengths as a young call.
And their, um, team need is point guard and center depth.
Not not the starters, but, you know, cats standard behind.
Um, yeah. Daniel place.
And eso uncle freezes.
Best fit for the Boston Celtics is coal.
Anthony and I had the Boston Celtics selecting coal.
Anthony, I think I think you Celtics pick because they take every player I like, So, e think Oh, my gosh.
I think we're in agreement.
I mean, would would like to think that's what I have to I don't have a Vernon carry going there.
You think that the cancer replacement? Yep.
And I see even the team need is spot on, like they actually need a body there.
Somebody was, you know, But, man, I didn't I'm not knocking it because once the draft is over, guys are, you know, guys played for who they play for.
But, man, I didn't I don't know Yeah, yeah, yeah.
I'm gonna be so mad.
A Celtic e Possibly think pressure is there to Maybe if they're trying toe.
But I feel like they're veteran team.
If they're looking for body, they'll probably get in free agency.
Um, so do we have to discuss the Celtics? Um, call.
We know Jason Tatum and Jalen Brown and Stars, man. And we know Kemba Walker.
Let's just let's just move on to Orlando.
So let those teams strength, in my opinion, is chemistry because they don't have, um, you know, But I have them taking.
I have the Orlando Magic taking.
Where is it? This is not working for me.
This thing this may break my heart here, e I have them taken.
Aaron D. Smith here.
Oh, my gosh, man.
That's like the dagger that's like that I have them taking, I think, have them taking the one thing that they absolutely need.
Three point shoot when you're I think they're center and the center and Terrence.
Um um, what's with their sixth man? Um, we're like the Yeah, we're Yeah, we're they're legit three point shooters.
And I think if you add, um, aren isa mhm.
What was the guy that they took last year? I can't remember.
I can't help you.
So you had our Jane Hampton going to Orlando.
I'm going to Orlando.
Um, RJ Hansen is going to know what I'm talking about.
What? You had said that with that in the chance.
Um and and so I just saw a video from raw Hebrew remnant who said basically said, R.
J Hampton is a hot bag of trash and the Knicks **** and select them with any pick.
And he's talking about, like, 8 27 or 38.
Hey, could go either way.
I didn't like I didn't like his high school tape and everybody looks good high school.
E didn't think he was a point guard at all in this high school team.
Yeah, but e don't mind you like cool.
Anthony never looked like a point guard.
But you saw that I saw his offensive game.
He was just fast, fast and can jump higher than everybody else's.
I didn't much I didn't see a lot of really good basketball, right? But you know, if he with, but he's gifted so athletically.
So if he if he figures out and just play ball, you could talk.
You're talking about a mini Westbrook.
You know, I you know what? Ironically, I have Uncle freezes best fit RJ Hampton.
So I said, out of that And then when I did the box, I had r J E.
Smith is here, he's the best available.
Uh, he's not on my board.
So my board it's is Buzz favorite guy Kyra Lewis.
Don't call me Jeff Tee Lewis A There is hilarious.
It is hilarious, man.
Oh, my, my My rationale is, um what's his name? Augustine is a free agent.
Yeah, folks whose starting thio figure it out.
But it is very, uh, very Besides that, the folks can play either guard spot.
So, you know, it allows Cairo Thio, you know, be a backup and or play alongside with with folks.
So wow, that's the interest.
Okay, so Marquel folks are Marquel folks, Terrence Ross Aaron Naismith scenario in the backcourt rotation is intriguing to me.
If all we owe California to California e o.
I thought it's high performing refuge is ah I don't think he's gonna leave.
I think he'll play one more year.
E think he makes a good amount of money.
It's not like he's under, right.
You figure out their wings situation, though.
They got they got too many small forward or dudes.
Yeah, Yeah, yeah.
Like, you think it's gonna probably out for a while.
So they get that care or shoe mochi back from Auburn.
He's the guy that got you got hurt late in the college season.
Okay, that's cool.
So the Portland Trail Blazers on the clock, Their team strength to me is experienced.
I think their team need is wing defender.
I have them taking.
So uncle freezes best fit or other.
If the Portland Trail Blazers select Sadiq Bay and I have uncle freezes best fit for Portland is Sadiq Bay.
No argument there for me.
I took This is where I put Coal Anthony.
Best player available.
And and you'll give them scoring off the bench.
So right? And I agree.
Some of whom they need They need defense because their guards are not gonna play any.
And their defense of skiing.
I mean, Hassan Whiteside is a very productive big off the bench and he does play defense.
But he is a ball chasing.
He's like a mental Robinson in in four years like a ball block chaser, as opposed to, um, a rim protector switching guy.
So I mean, well, Mitchell probably switch E.
But White side is not the guy that you want to get switched in a pick and roll.
Retract my I just thought I'm taking Jaylin Smith here.
Oh, yeah, that's a good pick.
Jaylin Smith, Gino Smith, Jalen McDaniel's and Portland.
Yes, I'm not famous.
Subic Bay, By the way, Molasses is God, No, I know it's pretty cool.
Yeah, but I think when he does, though, he's, you know, I think he I think he's the intangible guy like the guy you draft because, you know, he brings a lot of intangible stuff like he's gonna understand the defense of scheme. You running.
He's not gonna be out of place, you know? I'm saying he's gonna know when to contest the shot when it take a charge.
Um, he's gonna know when to when to, you know, take threes when to let them cook.
Um, I think it's It's a It's a I think this is.
Ah, smart move by Portland If he's available right here.
Did you any s o r? Who do you who do you have him taken? I have them taking coal.
Anthony. Okay, Alright.
Scoring off the bench.
They kind of needed to Okay.
Simmons? Yeah, he scored eight runs per game.
Yeah, well, he's a young player.
You think? You think Cole's gonna score more than eight points a game with that? With that back with the aim And with dammit color on playing like 35 minutes a game.
That stuff that's true.
E g about science.
You think so? Yeah.
That's a scorching hot take, brother.
Okay, Uh, I'm a cool Anthony guys, so I don't get that's true.
I think he would beat out Anthony Silence.
How about Trent? What's his name? So that that gives them five guards caught me off guard off the best.
That's pretty good.
So the Minnesota Timberwolves are on the clock, and there were We went over there with strengths and weaknesses, and we also went over there? Um, their draft picks right here.
I have them picking precious actual pressures that you went to the temple walls with the uncle freezes.
Best fit is Theresa Maxie, and I almost I almost pat myself on the back for this.
He looks like a man.
Tyree's Maxie should be the pick here because there is more pressure for him to do what he does in Minnesota.
You know what I'm saying? I mean, he doesn't block Jarrett Culver.
He won't get in the way of the young to that they have already.
He'd be like, um, the Lou Williams type one of the Williams.
That's a bad cop.
Probably scoring punch off the bench if you can figure it out and we'll defend anybody is not afraid of anybody.
Well, keep in mind that in this scenario, Minnesota has Anthony Edwards.
You're absolutely right.
Yeah, I have Josh Green going here.
The screen? Yeah.
Josh Green defense.
Basically, um, well, I like the pressures of sure pick.
I really dio right, e.
I like the pressure because I was gonna go somewhere.
I was going to go, um, cocoa here.
Oh, okay. Chesky.
Huh? As, like, you know, because there, yeah, drafting stash.
But this precious pick that you have here got me thinking because I think questions would help them now.
Yeah, Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I think I'm gonna go with your pick.
I don't know who's gonna take poku e anyone? Yeah, but where he's like, I don't know who is going to take that risk.
Yeah, but you already moved on to Dallas.
Okay, so the Dallas Mavericks, I have, um their strength is young core with Luca and KP.
I think they're deficient at wing defenders and secondary playmaking.
I have been Dallas Mavericks selecting Talib A here with the best with the uncle freezes best fit being Nico Mannion.
Um, this is where I picked higher authority e off.
What? So I thought about that.
And so the only reason why I didn't add totalitarian here is what this talent Terry do When Luca is playmaking.
You could you could shoot that.
It was off the ball now.
So you're actually projecting his um, his his point guards killed based on limited opportunities on the ball he played, He played the vast majority off the ball.
And another thing about it is that he's really good at relocated.
Give the ball up and then, you know, like Curry does and trade does, like, pass the ball, run, run down the run down the paint and then run to the corner while his while his man loses track of where he is and then gets the open three.
So my only thing is is that isn't Seth Curry still there, right? E think he resigned last year.
I think he's differently.
Three more years, I think.
And do they still have Bronson? Awful.
I could see that, Governor.
They go so thick.
E don't think they were.
I don't think South Korea would, like stop them from taking Tyrell.
Oh, yeah, probably not.
No, I don't think so.
I'm gonna change my pick here.
I'm gonna give Go ahead and give Minnesota poco and then Precious Precious.
Hey, don't draft.
You can't do a draft board with pencil, man, You got dio now you know who we can't play cards with? Yeah, no, that that that poku pick was bothering me.
So e figured I figured that that Minnesota is trying to compete.
If they're going to get somebody to play alongside of of cat to help him defensively, it's probably gonna be a vet.
So So that's why where I feel like precious conjugate plane time in Dallas Thio help to protect? Uh, not Luca.
Um ***** as poisonous Z Hey, shout out to whose mark I know whose mark is probably watching and heard that comment, man Whose mark don't come at my throat, man, You know what I'm saying? We're the good guys.
E way called k p a *****.
But we don't really need it.
Like way E? Yes.
Oh, you like a piece? Whose Marcus whose mark is gonna hit me in the d m? Like? Who is this dude? Rick on your show? Uncle Crazy talk about it like you don't even e took said who's marque Alfa freezing yesterday? Yeah, on nothing but next.
Yeah, Dwight Powell.
Maxie, Keebler Those guys Precious bring something different.
Yeah, that line up, you know it is offensive rebounding.
His defensive energy.
That's a lot of energy players right there.
Yeah, e clearly a because they have, like, a gap.
They have the Dwight Powell's.
And then they have They're Tim Hardaway unions, you know, saying Dwight, not any Smith do you grow? That is good yet so All right.
Um um, so Brooklyn is on the clock.
I have, um, their strength as being, um a championship level core.
And rent protection is meaning strength.
Um, their team needs Is health staying healthy? They have one draft pick, right? And so I have that draft pick is being j scrub.
And you know your your entire It's Maxie here.
I like that e Thomas Maxie there.
Uh, yeah, yeah, right.
I respect a bunch.
And with the best fit being Trey Jones just a rock solid.
Um, professional backup point guard that can you spell Kyrie.
I'm Carol Lewis Jr going here.
Drop into Brooklyn at 20.
Look well, but like it doesn't like he could develop under them like they have been witty and Kyrie.
So there's no really no pressure from right, Right? Right.
So what do you think about Tyreese? Maxie to Brooklyn.
Yeah, they need the the depth, you know.
Yeah, I like it because they got a lot of guys that like to hold head of the ball.
Yeah, Um, So I think Tyree's Mexican getting where you fit in so I could see him playing alongside Bram Witty.
And I feel I feel like they're not even gonna play a rookie.
You probably don't even play, to be honest with right? Right or any already? Yeah.
Yeah, that's why I took a, uh okay, Yeah, he's not gonna put.
And you're like, why is it Kyra Lewis playing? But right.
I just man, to be honest with you, I hate Brooklyn.
I mean, we even want to talk about him.
But in fantasy NBA fans, you know, we have to talk about Brooklyn, and we have to talk about the Miami Heat.
So the Miami Heat has developed a nice young core and added a vet to go along with to bring them along.
Um, I think there there need is consistent three point shooting.
Not they have three point shooting, but they don't always.
Everybody is not always hitting at the same time.
Um um and I think they also need health.
They need to stay healthy in order.
And you can't get that in the draft.
I mean, you can get drafted, guy that doesn't get injured often, but in terms of what they already have, I think they, um I think they just need to stay healthy on Dhere is where I have them going.
J scrub with the with the uncle freezes best fit being Desmond Bang does not being Yeah, yeah, um I think they, like, kind of needs some more size, so I hadn't take Daniel tour.
Oh, I like Daniel tour.
I don't think he was gonna get picked this hide on Leonard.
Whatever person Leonard Myers.
But he's ah, he's a free agent Meyers.
Leonard isn't okay.
Yeah, he was like, there's fresh.
What? Tomorrow could do that.
So this'll is gonna hurt.
My heart is gonna hurt and shoot her.
Shoot Hurt or two e got sick.
Oh, no, you didn't.
Oh, long at mercy, man.
Um, at a simmer at 88 we all had different picks for the next, um at eight.
I had a yucca. Congo.
Um, wait, you have eight vessel? That 48 And I took a convoluted.
So you want to move on from the heat and talk about the Sixers, or you have something else to say about that? No, Because that hurts.
So I have Philly.
I have the Sixers taking all Smith with the wants to me.
Yeah, with the uncle.
These, um, that's picked being Tyrell Terry to the sixties of the six or sticking RJ Hampton? Mm hmm.
How does everybody was sick? Was that How does that play with with Shake Milton? I mean, he's a rookie, so they're gonna be a playoff team.
They're gonna just That's the longer go ahead.
Like they're they're just gonna They're they're, like, a quote unquote contender.
But it's now they're gonna take the potential, you know, um, shake at the end of the day is a second round pick who's just been playing well and then post.
They just like shooting.
So he ends up getting playing time.
E, don't worry about shaking drafting, but things is.
Another one is gonna hurt I have to assume that these GM Zehr Smart s o I have Tyrell Terry here because that's a good eso play.
He could play next to Ben Simmons.
So to me, I think he's a perfect fit for them.
Tyrell has already gone on myself.
Okay. Yeah, that's right. That's right.
So s so I think we have, like, our left for SportsCastr before they but I wanted to get through the last pick so that we could do, like, a recap.
Okay, maybe maybe look at trade scenarios as we look back at the draft.
Water s I'm a kind of zoom through these last few A little tiny bit.
We wanna do him justice, but just, you know, um, so I have the Denver Nuggets.
Um, we don't need to talk about their strengths and weaknesses because they they already, you know.
But so we have the nuggets taking, uh, jaded McDaniel.
I'm sorry, Nico. Mannion.
I'm looking at it on my phone, man and see the print and one another window.
Put it on another window.
E I have them taking Jeremias Ramsey.
Really? Yeah, because he's like a good basketball player and they take good basketball players.
Imagine the G m.
Just drafting on basketball scale.
I'm a go for the bay here.
I'm the baby seems to be pay.
And Tyler Bates be honest with you.
I'm going to actually go title day.
Um, in case they lose grand.
Um, yeah, I just think.
Yeah, he's a guy that brings the energy.
And what about Michael Porter, Jr? You don't feel like he's gonna be a play a long term? It is? Yeah.
Yeah, he definitely is.
Starting lineup a set.
I mean, provided that they be able to resign either Grant or no, sir.
Well said so this morning lineup instead.
They're just looking for following his players.
I have Tyler be here because I I'm just not a so I think Bay fan.
Anybody Except a way to get Yeah, he will.
He will go on my boy at some point when players? Uh huh.
So, um, So moving on to the Utah Jazz, right? Yep.
Like your, uh, let me see.
I think I have them taking the Yoma Ladan with, um, the uncle freezes best fit.
Actually, being Germany is Ramsey.
You can just get me because I agree with your mail down.
He's a bigger point guard that can play alongside, um, Spider.
What's his name? Their point guard, common Connolly is on his, uh, their option.
And he's done just a year.
Would be a good mentor for Theo.
Yeah, I think that's a perfect fit, right? Yeah.
I think I want to go out.
I think I want to make I put Nico here.
All right, All right.
So I have the Milwaukee Bucks at number 24.
Selecting Tyrell charity with Uncle Freezes.
Best fit being Desmond.
Anybody disagree with Taro? Terry going for the bucks? Being a good fit.
Oh, that's a that's available right there.
Entire bottom half of the draft.
So I have no problem firing failure.
He's already going on my board.
Oh, yeah, he's got He was picked, like, five picks already.
Uh, okay, I put I put Maxie here from Milwaukee.
I'm going with definite bain because I think they need guys that can fill it up or put they can score on their own
