It does take more physical effort to shoot farther away!

I’m asking why aren’t these young guys who are trying to make it to the nba, why don’t they develop a nba range three point shot? Especially given how valued it is...

A couple posts previous someone was talking about melten or whatever his name is and how he’d be a good pick at 25 so I’m also asking why? What does he bring to the table? Especially since it seems he’s not a very good three point shooter. Unless low 30s is good. I don’t consider that good...


Not strong enough?

Most of the kids play the game based off their athleticism and no skill what so ever. They play to their strengths and never their weaknesses.

Jump high
Handles and get to the bucket


See how the midrange is almost a lost art. Dunks and highlight reels.

Just my opinion.

Per @KevinOConnorNBA, the Lakers could be looking to move up in the draft with an eye on Zhaire Smith 👀👀

Awesome. I think Zaire could be one of the steals in the draft. The perfect guy to run the floor in transition.

If I were a possible draft pick I’d opt to go sooner and work on my weaknesses later.

I think I've whittled my choices for the 2nd round pick down to 3 players:

 

 

Billy Preston

 

 

 

Chimezie Metu

 

 

 

Sviatoslav Mikhailiuk

 

 

 

I reserve the right to change, add or subtract.  The 1st two are projects.  SM is NBA ready.
