You don't like Reddick because he's articulate?..

You need to re-read.
May 07th 2022

      Allstah thinks JJ Redick's basketball takes are horrible. News at 11.
May 07th 2022
16
      So besides a 15 year NBA playing career, he's basically just like you.
May 07th 2022

      You in here in advocating for JJ Redick?

So the NBA is conspiring to knock Steph & Warriors out of the playoffs?

May 07th 2022
33
why doesnt wiggins play aggressive like that all the time?
May 07th 2022
26

May 07th 2022
31
What were Warriors fans chanting when Wiggins was shooting FTs?
May 07th 2022
27
just sounded like "warriors!" over and over.
May 07th 2022

May 07th 2022
36
this game is kinda wild.
May 07th 2022
37

Yikes!
May 07th 2022
42
I’m really happy for Wiggins.
May 07th 2022
53
Absolutely. There’s a mental health angle here to consider
May 08th 2022
71
memphis fans, memphis coach, and even ja tried to blame poole
May 08th 2022
56
That first clip IS sorta wild in slo-mo though isn’t it?
May 08th 2022
57
this angle it looks more on the shin under the knee.
May 08th 2022
58
in real time ja didnt even react to the poole grab.
May 08th 2022
60
Totally changes my view, thanks for sharing
May 08th 2022
73
      rewatch the original clip.
May 08th 2022
75
           but even still...ja didnt react to that knee bump either.
May 08th 2022
88
no way in HELL you can say that was intentional.
May 08th 2022

memphis putting a lot on that play to deflect from not showing up
May 08th 2022

dumb ass foul by cp3.
May 08th 2022

And the dribble stop. Why even try that with 4 fouls?!?

I get why CP is the focus, but Luka is something man
May 08th 2022
102
People don't wanna talk about this, but you're of course correct.
May 08th 2022
103
also nobody wants to give him credit but Kidd is coaching his ass off...
May 08th 2022
104
      This is the huge difference. He got on Luka for his lack of defense and
May 08th 2022
106
      plenty of people give Kidd credit, especially for Mavs' improved defense
May 09th 2022
142
Luka is not playing with 10-day contract dudes.
May 08th 2022
105
what's beautiful about this Mavs team is that after Luka they have...
May 08th 2022

They were 18th in offense regular season.

Cmon dogg look at this roster

May 08th 2022

grizzlies might come out and play better as a team w/o ja.
May 08th 2022
120
given the regular season, sleeping would be beyond ridiculous
May 09th 2022

I know they went like 20-5 without him.

It will
May 09th 2022

so ja is officially listed as doubtful with 'knee soreness'.
May 09th 2022

memphis coach not disclosing mri results.
May 09th 2022
132
The reason of NOT saying what the injury is what exactly?
May 09th 2022
134
      most likely this
May 09th 2022
135
      isn't playing close to the vest here
May 09th 2022

           i don't see how a specific diagnosis
May 09th 2022

                Tough to speculate, but yes.
May 09th 2022

May 09th 2022
137
It's going to be VERY funny if the C's lose this series.
May 09th 2022
144
to defending champs tied for 2nd best EC record w/best player in NBA?
May 09th 2022

           … They’re both Semi Ojeleye’s former teams???
May 09th 2022
153
                Uh there’s an all star out.
May 09th 2022
156
                     Oh… the word “storyline” threw me off
May 09th 2022
164
                     C's should probably win. Wouldn't be particularly funny if they lose.
May 09th 2022

giannis speed turning the corner on jaylen brown was kinda scary.

He’s also the only coach who wears a mask.
May 09th 2022

      Was he wearing a mask last game because he thought he might be infected?

May 09th 2022

Whew. Amazing run by the Cs.
May 09th 2022
159
To win there (again) and win how they won is really something
May 09th 2022
160
      Warriors vs anyone from the East would be an entertaining series tbh
May 09th 2022
167
How am I just now realizing Horford has a Dominican accent? Lmao
May 09th 2022

      Damn. And I lived in Gainesville when he played for UF. No clue. Ha
May 09th 2022

           lol only reason i know is cuz he played here in the philly market.
May 09th 2022

Bruce Brown was so out of order with the Al Horford disrespect
May 09th 2022
162
its looking like it might be one of *them* games for the warriors.
May 09th 2022
166
oh yeah. lots of turnovers. klay and steph off so far.
May 09th 2022

May 10th 2022

      that's kinda what i was wondering...
May 10th 2022
201
Does Kerr clear protocols by next game?
May 10th 2022
198
seems unlikely since he JUST went in.
May 10th 2022
202
      yeah i think he needs 2 negative tests 24 hours apart too.
May 10th 2022
212
Ja Morant doubtful for the remainder of the playoffs.
May 10th 2022
205
he has a bone bruise. so the poole grab narrative is dead.
May 10th 2022
206
I wonder if Jenkins is going to apologize for lying on Poole?
May 10th 2022
208
      hes moved on to bitching about dray 'fouling' jjj on the last 3.
May 10th 2022
209
           He did but you’re never going to get that call with those players…
May 10th 2022

           dude is killing his own credibility and reputation with this stuff
May 11th 2022

Sucks for Ja. Never like to see injuries.
May 10th 2022

Awful :/
May 10th 2022
210
It sucks but for as mush as we love him it was known that he plays…
May 10th 2022
213
      Yup. He's gonna have a short career if he doesn't add to his game.

This guy is insufferable. His overstating commentary and waspy tone make
watching this game completely unenjoyable. For a guy who used to play the game,
he just sounds so unnatural and generic talking about the game.

“He took some umbrage with that.”....He took umbrage with that.
JJ tries way too hard.

He is far from articulate, which is why I repeated his statement

He stated “ he took some umbrage to/with that” as if he were
taking a burger with a side of fries. It made zero sense. It’s akin
to saying “ He took some offense to that.”

It’s “he took umbrage to/with that”. He was trying way too hard to sound
articulate thus sounding inarticulate.

He thinks he is the smartest guy in the room, but he isn’t, then on top
of that he is very arrogant and spews horrible basketball takes.
I didn’t like him as player, and he is insufferable as a person.

He was a prick at Duke ( his words), and a loser as a NBA player( choking clippers),
and is an obnoxious, arrogant prick as an analyst.

His idiotic takes on NBA basketball legends who played before the 1980s
illustrate that he knows absolutely nothing about the history of the game.

And he becomes agitated and displeased when people don’t agree with him.

Fock that dude.

In response to Reply # 15


  

          

Particularly in this context.

It’s a simple, straight-forward word, used in a plainly spoken and easily understandable context.

Nothing about even remotely comes across as “trying”, as it came across naturally.

You’re just an app around buffoon with incredibly stupid takes formed through simplistic reasoning.

That, and you’re that he served up that caricature Mad Doggy Dogg over his L-Stah grade Bob Cousy take😂

had nothing to do with you. You wear your inferiority complex well, and you
lack the ability to comprehend the English language. The post wasn’t about
you, nor was it geared towards you.

And as usual, you have nothing but juvenile insults to type. On other message
boards, you would have been banned by now. Say what you want about my takes,
but I don’t verbally attack users. You do.

His usage of the word umbrage in itself wasn’t the problem. The problem was his
usage of the word in a sentence. His sentence was grammatical incorrect.

I would appreciate it if you don’t interact with me.

curious to see/hear what happened tonight, couple of surprises even allowing Dallas and Philly are good enough to take a game in a series


What little I gleaned made them both look somewhat decisive rather than lucky or an off night for the other guy, but I dunno yet

In response to Reply # 5


  

          

Can't just throw him back in the starting lineup first game back from a hammy
Bam turtled
and Herro was off

I didn't really think the 6ers did anything that different
Having Jo back affected the previous easy baskets

But <80pts... a lot of that felt like an off night for MIA
Compounded by the MVP's return...and he didn't have a dominant game really...
MIA just put up a dud IMO.

Danny Green put up a season and career playoff high in points... pretty much sums it up

Obviously not his best game last night, dealing with the injuries and getting his wind back but his presence alone changes everything-offensively and defensively.

he had a great game tonight, though.

aggressive on offense. did his job being the primary defender on jah (for what that's worth). he was the main defender before they went zone.

dude is ridic, tho.

But Ja played great, Bane played better, JJJ was trash in Memphis and SD, Dillon was out, anything you take from a night out is a hot take.

They’re young dudes, they’re going to go out. Were they doing excessive tequila shots? They had the Saturday Night game so whatever time the got in shouldn’t have been an issues.

It’s just sportswriter hot take narratives.

In response to Reply # 34


  

          

them wide open shots gonna be there throughout the series.

role players tend to play better and shoot better at home.

regression to the mean for warriors stars plus the home court effect for the role players made it a pretty hot night, shooting. (that's not to say that memphis' defense has to be way better).

brooks was out. yeah. but gsw didn't have a problem w/ him in game 1, so that ain't really an excuse.


peace & blessings,

53. "I’m really happy for Wiggins."
In response to Reply # 0


          


He is truly a two-way player, who can do it all. I remember when he got drafted
by Cleveland, and they treated him like a disease before they traded him. He was
on ESPN, and he had no idea where he was going to play. Cleveland took his jersey
off their website, and they weren’t really communicating with him. He looked totally
miserable.

He was scapegoated in Minnesota, and was constantly being berated by critics.

Kid never said anything. He maintained his composure, and just played basketball.
He comes from a great family, and you never hear anything bad about him
on or off the court.

Now everyone is on the bozack. I wouldn’t mind seeing Wiggins win a chip.

for ja being injured.

here's the play they said ja got injured on.

meph coach comments.
https://twitter.com/NBCSWarriors/status/1523142621379670017

ja tweeted this and deleted it (with the video from above).
https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FSNRnhAaQAIm5cL?format=jpg&name=large

but it looks like ja got injured here on the knee to knee contact with klay.
https://twitter.com/ClutchPointsApp/status/1523145918672822273

he clearly started limping and hopping after that.

prolly played through it for a while and the injury just got worse.

I mean whether he was injured then and there we’ll never know, but it would definitely seem Poole grabs the knee intentionally and also pushes Ja’s back forward at the same time

whatever happened to jas knee...i dont think that play by poole was intentional. i think he was reaching for the ball to pull it away....caught the leg by mistake and let go.

75. "rewatch the original clip."
In response to Reply # 73


  

          

Poole bangs his knee (accidentally) into the side of Morant's knee while his leg is planted right before the leg "grab."

a lot of doctors on Twitter pointing to THAT being the cause of the injury based on how the Memphis doctors were examining Ja's knee - which definitely makes more sense.

either way, this whole thing was just some fluke basketball shit and Taylor Jenkins and Ja need to shut up.

JJJ said nah it wasn't dirty and he knows Poole personally.

I did love the shot Klay took at Memphis in the post game about all of this:

"I don't even think he's strong enough to affect somebody's knee. We're not out there trying to hurt people, or trying to club people in the back of the head on a fast break."

I love Klay so much. He's a real one.

88. "but even still...ja didnt react to that knee bump either."
In response to Reply # 75


  

          

compare that to how ja reacted when he banged knees with klay.

he was clearly feeling whatever effects that had on his knee.

that whole sequence with poole...the bump and the grab...he pretty much just blew it off.

68. "no way in HELL you can say that was intentional."
In response to Reply # 57


  

          

first of all, poole is ALREADY reaching for the ball when Morant moves his leg which causes Poole's hand to grab his leg instead of for the ball.

two, no nba player has the thought to go "you know what, lemme grab this guys knee and try to wrench it into an injury." on top of that, even if there was a quintillion chance that such a thought could be had in that moment, it's HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHLY unlikely you'd even injury the guy doing THAT. it's not like he put him in a figure four leg lock, LOL.

anyone thinking this is intentional is grasping at straws.

it was incidental contact and Ja was hurt before that anyway. a doctor checking your knee out has more on it than what Poole did just touching it.

All these narratives about the refs, or “they cheated” or “they hurt me on purpose” is making me watch hockey.

And in the other series - Smart fucking sucks and would’ve missed anyway - stop playing for fouls - hate that scrubby shit. The Celtics lost because Tatum got locked.

In response to Reply # 102


          

Brunson is a 2-time ncaa champion, and has always been skilled. Dimwiddie was
close to 20/10 when he was running the show with Levert in Brooklyn. This team is way
more talented than those Cleveland teams, and Tim Hardaway is out injured.


What has been proven is that when Luka SHARES the ball his teammates produce.
His how usage rate was a problem which Kidd said he would fix and he has. The
first two games his usage rate was bonkers and he was shooting too much, and they
lost those games.

5 or 6 guys that can get you 15-20 but you don't know who so its hard to game plan for that.

Luka will get his but he will also find open people. If he gives a little more effort on D they will be tough.

And a *bunch* of that was how much of the offense Bron carried.

Second best player was Larry Hughes. Third best was... Drew Gooden?

Yeah. That's an insanely overachieving roster. The vast majority of teams that are below average in offense do not *remotely* make it that far.

Their offense wasn't even at the level of their competition. However, that's back when the NBA valued defense.

Yes, I'm mad. Let's move on.

We have to stop with this dumb narrative that it's Luka or Lebron and a bunch of bums. Mavs have BALLERS. They are sharp shooters, not some G league players. Luka learned to let them cook and not go one on one all day.

Danny Green with another big game. Embiid hasn’t really been himself since he’s come back but his presence alone changes everything on both sides of the court.

I think you could just as easily say you hope the Grizz don't look at all their success without Ja and expect they can recreate it in game 4 of a semifinal with the snap of a finger after losing by 30


As a fan it's a hope of mine (even wanting the Warriors to win this series overall) but I think the Grizz were already losing the mental side of the series before ruling Ja out. Game 4 could easily be a blood bath, particularly given Ja has been the heart of this series without question.

122. "Does Spo maybe give Robinson just a few of Herro's minutes Game 5?"
In response to Reply # 0
Mon May-09-22 05:52 AM by Nodima

  

          

Looking for a classic minor adjustment that lights a spark under one or two guys or maybe just makes the game feel a little different?


Since Game 4 of the Hawks series Herro has been really up and down, and even in his better games point wise it hasn't necessarily been because his three is falling. I know the +/- specifically on defense is what is but might there be some minutes between Herro, Strus and Oladipo that the Heat could roll the dice on a spark plug performance from Robinson?


After these two games, even both being in Philly, I think they have to accept Embiid returning and not being noticeably affected by a damn fractured face and limited vision and accept some things need to change. The other thing that seems more obvious but maybe actually harder to implement is to stop fronting Embiid like mad men. Kenny smartly pointed out that the 76ers are pretty embarrassing on entry passes half the time but when you've got Embiid on Oladipo or Butler's back off a switch with a clear lob path to the basket 10 or 15 times a game you can't be happy with how that looks even if the 76ers might be uniquely equipped to fail at capitalizing on it.



As for PHX-DAL, feels like a classic 2-2 home and home situation in a semifinal so far. Gotta see one of these teams take a game on the road as we always say 'bout this time, and until then if I'm the Suns I'm not panicking at all. Luka had awesome performances and that crowd gets incredibly lit when he's in his pocket like that, plus you just can't expect Paul to keep being as bad as he's been the past two games...right? I think these two games also help them realize that, like Longo said, there's two or three guys who can legitimately keep pace with Luka on offense and they've really gotta figure out a way to push the Mavs into the middle of the floor more where their size is more of a problem for those sidekicks.

6 3s
...and a catch a shoot too...
Blew by his defender
Finished at the rim
Played great D
Even the misses... weren't coming up short

It's obvious dude is playing through an injury

If he is close to mended...I like our chances

B/W Lowry should not be on the court, let alone starting
He grabbed his hammy on uncontested layup
and spent the 2nd half limping up and down the court
Wouldn't be surprised if his hammy is worse now.

It's because either he's playing or they don't want to disclose that it clearly didn't happen in the Poole "incident".

Or both.

they backed themselves into a corner and gotta save face now.

with betting and just the general trend towards transparency of information/data in sports entertainment...im surprised the nba hasnt already tightened up the injury report rules (like the nfl).

pretty common practice?

suns got fined 20k for not giving accurate updates on Booker's hammy.

belichick is famous for playing mind games with injury reports.

isn't the idea, don't let the opponent know so that they have to split resources preparing for both scenarios? ja in, ja not in. divides the film work.

they shouldn't have blamed poole, that was wrong. but being secretive about an injury is nothing new

In response to Reply # 136


  

          

I mean, I kinda get it - it's a competitive advantage and teams can afford to throw money at being slapped on the wrist for it.

But in blaming Jordan Poole - they really did kinda double down on it happening there, and if the actual injury all but confirms that the injury occurred elsewhere, then they all look pretty bad. Including Ja himself with his "broke the code" bullshit.

In response to Reply # 138


          

is definitively going to prove or disprove whether it happened on the Poole play. it's not like his right knee hurts because he sprained his thumb. his right knee is injured, Poole (inadvertently) tugged on that knee. maybe if it was a patella bruise from banging it closing out on Klay, that would make your point?

In response to Reply # 140


  

          

Depending on what the injury is - and where on the knee it is, it could potentially rule out the injury happening on the play with Poole. And if THAT is the case, then Memphis and Ja look pretty stupid and have him out with injury.

Then again, it could just be gamesmanship.

Who knows.

But it’s pretty cool watching Jayson Tatum emerge as a top 5

I know Adam silver crying / mad af that lakers and nets aren’t competing though…ratings might have been record setting had they both performed up to expectation

That was the difference. He has to score at least 20. In the games they won,
he scored 25 points. Giannis is going to be Giannis. If Jrue can’t consistently
score, then Milwaukee will not win the series.

instead of getting back on defense...resulting in a 5 on 4 and either a trip to the free-throw line or a transition basket.

Tonight during a playoff game, take a shot of something every time that happens and let me know how you're doing by halftime.

Lying on the floor long after some real contact (whether you are exaggerating or not) is whatever. But the flailing and complaining foh.

I remember reffing a youth league game and this short 12 year old was literally throwing himself on the floor on drive. It sucked bc sometimes he was actually fouled and i blew the whistle even though he's throwing himself around like a fool. He did it one time and he had to be helped off the floor. Not sure what he even hurt, but no one touched him. His dad tried to run up on me threatening me and shit too. aight.

But yeah, seeing grown ass 6'10 dudes flailing around like jackasses is a damn shame.

-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.

>Which current NBA players outperformed or underperformed draft experts' projections?

Former lottery picks Jarrett Culver (left) and Trae Young help illustrate the difficulty of projecting future NBA stardom. Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

It should go without saying that the evaluation of NBA prospects is something less than an exact science. A number of factors can cause a player to either outperform or underperform relative to their NBA projection, and each of the league's 30 teams and their increasingly robust scouting and analytics staffs understand that this notion comes with the territory.

The unknown of future health is always a variable, while factors ranging from "late bloomer" status to "bad NBA team fit" issues to "combine warrior" realities can change the trajectory of a player's pro career immeasurably. ESPN's team of Jonathan Givony, Mike Schmitz and Kevin Pelton all conduct an exhaustive degree of evaluation and/or data analysis to help mitigate those unknowns -- but any NBA analyst worth their salt will tell you there are no guarantees. And any credible NBA draft analyst must own the misses. With that in mind, Givony, Schmitz and Pelton all identified recent NBA draft picks about whom they were wrong, laying out the factors that led to the errant projections -- both on the positive and negative sides of the ledger:


Rated too low

Jalen Brunson was a megstar at Villanova but slipped to the second round. AP Photo/Chris Szagola
Jalen Brunson | 2018 draft: No. 33 (Dallas Mavericks)

Everything about Brunson's résumé leading up to the 2018 draft screamed stardom. He was a five-star recruit after leading the Nike EYBL in assists and winning the MVP of the FIBA U19 World Cup (over Jayson Tatum), one of two gold medals he won with USA Basketball. He won two national championships at Villanova and was named the NCAA's National Player of the Year and Big East Player of the Year. He was an ultra-efficient scorer (60% 2P%, 41% 3P%) who played strong defense and almost never turned the ball over. But we didn't believe it, and neither did NBA teams judging by the fact that Brunson fell to the second round.

Brunson's arms weren't very long. He was only 6-foot-1. He had a pudgy frame. He was too slow. He didn't have a very explosive first step. He didn't show much wiggle with the ball. He played a bully-ball-style power game that wasn't all that aesthetically pleasing to watch. He had only seven dunks and made seven floaters in 116 college games. Analytics models hated the fact that he posted only one block in his entire college career, and very few rebounds and steals.

Would he be able to stay in front of NBA point guards with a 6-3 wingspan, a bad body and lack of lateral quickness? So much of his offense came in the post -- could he get by anyone in the NBA? Were his assist numbers mostly a product of Villanova's system? How would any of it translate, and if it didn't, how much would he actually improve considering he'd turn 22 two months after the draft?

What the NBA's worst teams should do with the No. 1 pick ... and what happens if they fall out of the top 3
8dJonathan Givony and Mike Schmitz
It all turned out to be utter nonsense, which became apparent very quickly in the NBA, where Brunson became a starter and major contributor as a rookie, despite being "already" 22. Brunson continued to improve in each of his four seasons in the NBA thus far, and is currently in the midst of a stellar playoffs. He kept the Mavs afloat with Luka Doncic out because of injury in the first round, scoring 41 points in one game against Utah, and has played a huge role in Dallas tying the conference semifinal series with Phoenix at 2-2.

Brunson has improved his body to become one of the most efficient pick-and-roll guards in the league, his floater is elite, and he's one of the best off-the-dribble shooters in the NBA. His ability to play on or off the ball alongside Doncic is a huge key to the Mavs' success. While he's still not the most explosive guard around -- his four total dunks this season rank 350th in the NBA, per Synergy -- he gets where he wants on the floor thanks to his handle, pace and strength, finishes extremely well around the basket, and more than holds his own defensively, especially off the ball.

The lesson we should learn from Brunson's misevaluation as a draft prospect? Don't dismiss ultraproductive, ultraconfident winners like him so easily, especially those who are deadeye off-the-dribble shooters like he was in college. -- Givony


Shai Gilgeous-Alexander did not necessarily project as a franchise cornerstone during his career at Kentucky. Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander | 2018 draft: No. 11 (Charlotte Hornets)

I had Gilgeous-Alexander 14th in my subjective rankings ahead of the 2018 draft, three spots lower than he was actually taken and four spots lower than SGA ranked among all players under 25 in our most recent rankings with Mike and Bobby Marks.

Although Gilgeous-Alexander's stats in his one season at Kentucky were certainly not bad, neither did they scream future star. He ranked 20th in my consensus projections and 37th in the stats-only version. However, a Wildcats team with limited floor spacing (Kevin Knox was the only UK starter to make even one 3-pointer per game and frontcourt starters Nick Richards and P.J. Washington combined to make just five 3s) didn't allow SGA to take full advantage of his quickness and playmaking.

This was a case in which Jonathan and Mike had a clear advantage thanks to scouting Gilgeous-Alexander back to the youth level. Mike was especially high on SGA, and it took me about five minutes watching him in a different setting at NBA summer league to see why. Gilgeous-Alexander was instantly successful as a rookie on a competitive LA Clippers team and now looks like a future star for the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Although the challenge of limited floor spacing for super-quick guards is a universal one in college hoops, it's one that seems especially important to understand when scouting perimeter prospects from Kentucky -- many of whom have outperformed their projections in the pros. -- Pelton


Questions about Trae Young's durability on both ends of the floor followed him into the draft. Rob Ferguson/USA TODAY Sports
Trae Young | 2018 draft: No. 5 (Dallas Mavericks -- dealt to Atlanta Hawks)

Young has been my biggest scouting miss to date. It's not that I didn't think he'd be a productive NBA player, but I surely didn't see him ranking sixth in the NBA in scoring and second in assists on a playoff team at just 23 years old, one year removed from an Eastern Conference semifinal run. I preferred fiery Alabama guard Collin Sexton to Oklahoma's Young leading up to the 2018 NBA draft, projecting Sexton as a two-way contributor, and had concerns about the Sooners star's lack of defensive impact and ball-dominant style. Although Sexton was no slouch in his third NBA season prior to dealing with injuries in Year 4, that was clearly an inaccurate forecast and one that I think about quite often when evaluating the next crop of prospects.

The NBA on ESPN and the ESPN App

Thursday, May 12
Heat at 76ers, Game 6 (7 p.m.)
Suns at Mavs, Game 6 (9:30 p.m.)

Friday, May 13
Celtics at Bucks, Game 6
Grizzlies at Warriors, Game 6*

*If necessary | All times Eastern

Even after lighting college basketball on fire with deep 3s and one-handed dimes, Young had no shortage of skeptics. And it is still valid to question if Young can be the centerpiece of a championship-caliber team, especially when you look at the level of defensive versatility necessary to make a deep playoff run -- see Boston Celtics. The Miami Heat threw the kitchen sink at Young, limiting him to 15.4 points, 6.0 assists and 6.0 turnovers through 5 games, as he looked worn down from the length, physicality and aggression. The Hawks also ranked 26th in defensive rating this season. But even with those pre-draft questions still slightly lingering in some corners of the NBA, Young is clearly far better than I anticipated, as his supreme skill level, never-ending confidence and ability to spray the ball all over the floor to open teammates should have him in the All-Star conversation every season despite lacking the size and length scouts traditionally look for in a modern lead guard.

So how do we avoid this mistake moving forward? Some prospects are simply so special offensively that you're willing to live with some of the defensive mistakes. Among those special talents, those who can really facilitate and keep their teammates happy lessen the blow on defense and make the swing worth taking in the draft.

Although he plays a completely different position and physical profile, I think about Trae Young in comparison to Duke star Paolo Banchero, another unique offensive talent with the ability to create offense at 6-foot-10, 250 pounds like no one else in this draft. The fact that Banchero can really pass on the move unlike any of the other top-pick contenders will allow the team that drafts him to play through him, and will keep his teammates relatively happy even if he misses a defensive rotation or two. While I still tend to favor two-way players with positional length in my projections, I've learned from Young that some offensive talents are worth the swing, especially when they have a few unique traits. -- Schmitz

Rated too high

Jarrett Culver's dominance against top teams like Duke perhaps led to him becoming overrated with scouts. Lance King/Getty Images
Jarrett Culver | 2019 draft: No. 6 (Phoenix Suns)

It was difficult not to be enamored with the intriguing combination of versatility, youth and productivity Culver displayed as a sophomore, when he helped Texas Tech to the brink of a national championship. The Big 12 player of the year and a second-team All-American, Culver basically did everything for the Red Raiders, averaging 23.4 points, 8.1 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 1.8 steals per 40 minutes, pace adjusted, making him a darling of analytics models and traditional scouts alike. Culver was a 6-foot-7, long-armed, 20-year-old wing who defended all over the floor and shouldered significant playmaking responsibility for one of the best teams in college basketball, making him a lock as a top-10 pick on draft night.

But Culver has more or less fallen flat on his face in three NBA seasons, seeing his minutes drop every year to the point that he played in just 39 games this season, mostly coming in garbage time. He has appeared overwhelmed in those minutes, struggling to beat opponents off the dribble, looking incredibly indecisive when left open from the perimeter and hitting under 50% of his free throw attempts in three seasons, a sign of how damaged his confidence is at this point.

Looking back on Culver's film, there are some obvious red flags we can identify. He shot 12-of-78 (28%) from the field in four NCAA tournament games against high-major competition, including just 3-of-22 (14%) from beyond the arc. He noticeably struggled getting by opponents with his underwhelming first step and was extremely streaky when shooting from beyond the arc.

Texas Tech often slid Culver to power forward as games went on and used him in the mid-, high- and low-post to cut down on the amount of dribbles he'd need to collapse the defense and use his excellent playmaking ability to find open shooters or cutters in their motion offense. The Red Raiders won games off their No. 1-ranked defense, in which Culver played a major role, not their methodical offense, of which he was their unquestioned go-to guy.

ESPN's NBA Basketball Power Index

Who is No. 1 in the latest NBA Basketball Power Index? Go to Ratings

Still, Culver flashed enough promise on offense to turn a blind eye to the fact that he lacked explosiveness to be a primary playmaking hub in the NBA, and was nowhere near a good enough shooter to be effective in an off-ball role (28% 3P in the NBA), sporting a slow release. He came up huge in many key moments, icing a Final Four win with a gutsy pull-up 3-pointer against Michigan, and scoring the would-be go-ahead basket in the national championship on an iso spin-move lefty layup out of a clear-out against De'Andre Hunter and Virginia. He dropped 25 points on No. 1 ranked Duke at Madison Square Garden, rising up for tough shot after tough shot off the bounce. He hit 45% of his 3-pointers in the first two months of the season and 38% as a freshman, causing many scouts to wave away his 25% 3-point shooting in his final 25 games as a sophomore as a product of Texas Tech's offense, as we already earmarked him for stardom by the time January rolled around.

Culver never played a minute of summer league as a draft-day trade took more than two weeks to get consummated. The nine-month pandemic layoff from March to December in 2020 probably didn't help matters, and he has had some minor injuries as well. Culver was too high of a draft pick to be sent to the G League to regain his confidence, and the Timberwolves ended up trading him to Memphis, one of the deepest teams in the NBA, which promptly declined his $8.1 million team option, making him an unrestricted free agent this summer. With his size, passing and defensive versatility, there are still outlines of a potential NBA player here if he can regain his confidence, especially considering he's only 23-years old, and there will surely be teams lining up this summer to offer him a small, team-friendly deal to see if he can rediscover the potential that made him such a high draft pick just three years ago.

Culver's struggles transitioning from college basketball stardom to functional NBA player are a reminder of how difficult the draft can be to project, and why context is so important in evaluating prospects. Had he not been the playmaking hub of an elite defensive team that instilled unlimited offensive confidence in him and allowed him to play to his strengths, he likely never becomes a top-10 pick. -- Givony


Sekou Doumbouya oozed upside that he could never quite deliver on at the NBA level. Patrick Albertini/EB/Getty Images
Sekou Doumbouya | 2019 draft: No. 15 (Detroit Pistons)

Doumbouya is an illustration of the limits of youth when it comes to potential, particularly for international prospects. Doumbouya rated third in my 2019 consensus projections, behind only top-two picks Zion Williamson and Ja Morant, in large part because Doumbouya wouldn't turn 19 for another six months. Doumbouya had played decently in the French Pro A league and EuroCup competition given his age, providing decent minutes off the bench, but he wasn't nearly as accomplished when he entered the league as the European prospects who have become stars in the NBA.

Although I wasn't subjectively quite as high on Doumbouya as the projections, putting him behind RJ Barrett and Darius Garland as well as Culver, I still had him ahead of the likes of Brandon Clarke, De'Andre Hunter and Tyler Herro. As those players are playing key roles in the playoffs, Doumbouya is out of the league entirely, having been traded by the Detroit Pistons to the Brooklyn Nets last summer in a salary-related move and subsequently waived. His time as a two-way player with the Los Angeles Lakers ended in March.

Still just 21, Doumbouya could eventually become an NBA contributor. However, he certainly wasn't a top-10 prospect like I thought three years ago. In the future, I'll want to see a little more proven performance before rating a prospect that high almost entirely on the basis of youth. -- Pelton

Deni Avdija | 2020 draft: No. 9 (Washington Wizards)

It's far too early to write the 21-year-old Avdija off after 136 career games. The fact that he has evolved into a versatile defender while playing all 82 games and shooting a career-best 76% from the free throw line last season is a major step in the right direction (that was a pre-draft concern for most of his skeptics when projecting his 3-point shooting). Avdija showed more glimpses of shot creation than ever toward the end of the regular season. Although I still project Avdija as an eventual starter on a playoff team, I personally had him third overall behind LaMelo Ball (first) and Anthony Edwards (second), just ahead of Tyrese Haliburton. I dubbed him the "steal of the draft" when the Wizards selected him ninth overall. In retrospect, I should have saved that line for Tyrese Maxey, whom I had in the top 10 and was selected 21st overall.

Monday through Friday, host Pablo Torre brings you an inside look at the most interesting stories at ESPN, as told by the top reporters and insiders on the planet. Listen

So, what are the biggest things I've learned from ranking Avdija that high? For one, I think it's important that you can identify at least one "NBA skill" when evaluating prospects. Of course, in today's positionless NBA you have to be able to do multiple things, but I always tell young players, "Why is the coach going to look down the end of the bench and put you in the game? What's your superpower that you do better than almost anyone on the team." While Avdija did a little of everything on both ends of the floor, pushing in transition, attacking downhill, making occasional 3s and showing off the potential to develop into a versatile defender, he didn't quite have one elite skill he could hang his hat on every night regardless of the opponent. On top of that, I've learned that potential top-three-caliber prospects generally need that sense of inner calm that allows them to take over games, along with the skill set to make shots off the dribble, if they're going to ultimately blossom into a wing creator like I projected Avdija to become. Avdija often played a little too sped up, which has helped him become a great defender but is also a reason it has taken time for him to slow down offensively. The shooting off the dribble was a bit of an adventure as well, and he's a career 31% from 3 so far.











As we identify an elite skill for the prospects toward the top of this draft, Chet Holmgren has his rim protection, Jabari Smith has his shooting, Banchero has his ball handling, Jaden Ivey has his speed and burst. While Keegan Murray is maybe a good-not-great shooter, he does have that inner calm to take over games. There are several projected lottery prospects, however, who don't quite have an elite skill, at least from an NBA perspective. On top of that, I've also learned how your brain can find comfort in prospects you've evaluated closely for a longer period. That was the case for Avdija, whom I had scouted in person arguably as much as any other prospect since I've been doing this. It's important to not equate all those evaluations with surefire future success. -- Schmitz

I think there's...26 teams that'd love to have Jones starting for them next year. Warriors, Suns, Grizzlies, Hawks are not those teams. Grizzlies have to buy into Ja until the wheels fall off. You can't predict that even if you want to hold D. Rose against him. Maybe one or two more I can't think of after a bar session?


Might just be the shortened first name but he kinda reminds me of Ty Lawson in the previous era without an alcohol problem. He just makes what you want to do work and if he has to make it work himself, he's crafty enough to figure it out.

271. "Klay is worrying me."
In response to Reply # 269


  

          

Guys like Durant, (yes) Westbrook and, sure, Rudy Gay make it seem like achilles injuries are nothing much, while the ACL return still feels a little magical or at least on a bit of a sine wave pattern but I'd always understood both injuries to fuck with lateral movement, ie. staying in front of guys on defense, cutting on offense, driving to the basket and help defense on monsters like Giannis or pre-hammy Harden.


Klay is in a weird spot because on all of these things, except maybe one on one, he usually looks like he's still got the passion, drive, physicality and awareness to show up for all of these things. He's wide open when he should be, he's bodied up when he has to be, he's the second man with his hands up about as efficiently as he should be, yet...it feels like whatever he gets off, buckets or denial, is a hoop god miracle. I wonder if it looks good to NBA players in the film room? I really don't know.


But as an outside observer, watching him against these young guys...I feel my own age. He NEEDS to hit those spot up shots, much sooner than later.

In response to Reply # 271


  

          

before the injury though. I would be more concerned if Klay lost speed or lateral movement defensively since that was a key factor for him defending on the wing. I haven't been watching the Warriors consistently enough to opine on that aspect since I refuse to stay up late to watch West Coast games during the week.

because w/out Ja, Memphis gets BIGGER. size is GS's biggest weakness.

and the problem is: it's not like the guys filling in are a Jokic-like stiff that they can just abuse on the offense end. the closest Memphis has to a "stiff" is Stephen Adams but he ain't THAT stiff and he does a lot of good things around the rim for them.

now, that being said, IF Kerr is back for game 6, i think GS wins by 10+ at home.

*IF* Kerr is still out??? this shit might be going back to Memphis.
