Guys gotta stop envisioning these young players as superstars. That's how you get yourself caught up being mad about their early years performance. Fultz looks great right now but he might come in and look like Mudiay for a year or 2. You never know.


Well im hoping we get another top 3 and i hope (and believe) 2 of our guys turn into stars. If not, then we're in trouble.

Seriously though, Ball is actually a decent option with the 2nd pick. This draft feels really overrated to me. However, I do believe that Russell was a better prospect.

You view Ball as being unathletic?

I think he has tremendous foot speed and relatively good athleticism.  His ability to finish at the rim is great as well.

 

I'm honestly at a cross-roads between Fultz and Ball, I really don't view either or as being significantly better than the other.

Ball at the 1 and Russell at the 2 wouldn't be so bad.

No, I was simply making a Russell joke.

Ball is a pretty good athlete. I prefer Fultz but I really don't see either as being a better prospect than Russell. Obviously, if we have a top 2 pick you pretty much have to take one of them. Fultz would be better next to Russell imo simply due to his scoring mentality. I think Ball would work better with a catch and shoot type of 2 guard which I don't think Russell is at this point in his career.

I really like Jackson as well. Jackson at the 2 and Ingram at the 3 would instantly upgrade our defense. He's actually my favorite at the moment.

I think he's a much more athletic version of D'Angelo Russell.
