I honestly dont care too much about your player evaluation or who you compared WCS to. You thought we should have drafted Jahlil Okafor over D’Angelo Russell, despite all statistics pointing towards Okafor being a dinosaur. That says it all.
Well, we disagre on Bogut. I think he’s a strong defensive anchor and he does come in on a 2nd place in DRPM if you care about that sort of stuff. I expect you dont, since you have that take on him. KJ may very well turn out being a bust. Who knows. Wouldn't have to be him either. Could be any number of guys. But the point is that once Nance comes back there isn’t enough minutes to go around in the frontcourt to both TRob and Black, much less next season if Zubac is going to see the floor, which i hope he will. So if once of them isn't going to see the floor for the rest of the season or next season then why not take a flyer on someone and stash him in the D-League. [/size]
You don't care about my player evaluations? What about the rest of the forum that also thinks your ideas are insane?
You're trying to compare predicting a players transition from college to the pros, which Russell is still being questioned by many and has displayed the exact problems within his game that I said he would, versus trading for players that are struggling in the NBA after years of experience.
Nice reach though with the Russell thing. I vaguely remember a lot of people being shocked at that pick but go ahead and try to rewrite history and act as if Russell was clearly the better option. Okafor was a consensus top 3 pick that I projected to go 2nd...not sure why that is so much of a stretch! There were legit nba scouts that would have agreed with me. Hell, there were scouts that would have taken Russell over Towns lol
I dont understand why someone would trade players that have a significant impact on there team for WCS or KJ. Id give up a late 2nd round pick for WCS but KJ can stay where he is. No logical thinking person is trading anyone of actual value for either of those guys. Than you completely contradict your entire rebuilding philosophy by proposing a trade centered around Bogut! You've been arguing to get rid of Lou/Young on the basis that they won't be effective when our youth is ready to compete, yet you want to trade for an already declining big? You are all over the place and seem to just be throwing around random trades with little to no logic behind them.
