"Luka Doncic better be the #1 pick next year"


          

He just gave the business to Gasol brothers and Rubio and before that to Porzingis. He's the most fundamentally sound 18-year old the Europe has ever seen. Better than Petrovic, Nowitzki, Oscar, etc.

Kyrie

      Kyrie was scouted as having average speed?

he looks good.

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

he'll have his haters, but at least he's shown and proven vs NBA guys (albeit in international format).

Better when these guys get drafted off potential averaging 2.1 pts ppg and 1.5 rebs for FC barcelona and were told its because of how the minutes system is in Europe

the buckets doncic will create himself, and via hockey assists will make up for it even if he's not a 25ppg scorer.

a lethal #2 next to a star, yep. My guy? Building block? mmmm..no.

and I say this as someone whose day in day out job for, basically the last 2 yrs is basically this.

I honestly haven't seen enough of HS kids to say more beyond the simple "I like them" or "I'm not sure I see it next level," so I'm curious to hear expanded thoughts.

caveat of "draft prognostication not really my thing" for when all this is dead ass wrong, lol.
no order off top
porter
doncic
bamba
ayton
bagley
jaren jackson jr (could be myles turner type. 17 (maybe just turned 18) legit stretch 5 type.
bridges
robert williams (havent watched him in college at all. in hs just on body and hang time he legit made me go "who is that?" even though he had almost no skill. his ascent has been cool to follow
c. sexton semi-personal bias. was put on to him way before he became a thing. i almost cant bet against him if that makes sense. 6'1" and high jumps 6'8" and seemingly better all the time. if "wanting it" was a skill he might go 1.
thats 9. you know who could be 10 for me for shits and giggles. bruce brown. miami. might be 1a in terms of wanting it. fucking DAWG. has willed himself into a guy who may play pg in the league. marcus smart-ish with the intangibles but hecoming a guy who can shoot it.

i feel like super-hyped Euro prospects since Darko have pretty much lived up to their draft position. Gallinari, Rubio, Bargnani (no he was not a bust), Kanter have all been serviceable players. And the latest Euros are even better. Jokic, Giannis, Zingis....all gonna be perennial all-stars.

But, the way they cysing this kid right now, just giving him the #1 spot...he bet not be sorry

14. "Question about Doncic's speed/athleticism:"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I've seen multiple scouting sites say they have questions or concerns about how his speed/athleticism would impact his ceiling in the NBA. When was the last time a wing player with these concerns was considered for the #1 pick? Outside of James Harden, has there been a wing player picked Top 5 with these concerns who made multiple All-Star games the last, say, 15-20 years?

I'm not saying dude can't beast, and dude's IQ is clearly bonkers... I'm just pretty amazed that we're looking at multiple scouts cysing a wing prospect as the #1 overall while simultaneously wondering about his speed and athleticism at the NBA level.

(This question may be primarily for themaddfapper, lol.)

I never argued he was as fast as Rose or Westbrook or Wall. But he's pretty clearly above-average fast for the NBA. Which goes back to the point I made in the first place.

In what world is that sorry?

Doncic having a tremendous rookie season doesn't diminish the fact that Bagley has a great chance at being a First-Team All-Rookie this season too.
