One thing we must realise is that poole is not a shooter. We must look beyond him for shooting.more than 50 games and still 26% 3pt

Enough tanking already! This draft has a weak top-3, but it has good players 10 and 15 spots down. We can get a quality 3-and-D rotation player in the middle of the 1st round, while tanking to a top-3 pick gets us . . . LaMelo Ball.

I don’t know if I should be concerned about Poole’s outside shot yet. Sometimes he shoots it and really odds are it could end up anywhere, top of the backboard, behind the backboard, off the front of the rim, perhaps even through the basket. I don’t want to get too hard on the guy because he really is improving and I like his personality but that shot has me a little worried. It could hurt someone....

Hope the guys hang in there before they get catapulted upward. They play hard, and you could tell they’re not happy with losing (just basing it from their reactions when they lose their matchups during the game; there was even a point in the game when both Kevon and Marquese hung their heads at the same time while on the bench when the Kings scored). Hope they all continue to get more confident because I noticed the opposing teams feed off of their lack of certainty, kinda related to what Draymond said about teams just wanting to get back at them for being the dominant team for a while.

Continuation of BKs question last thread. I think the only way the Sixers part with Embiid is through a three way trade involving Draymond Green and both draft picks as a starting point. Don't think they want DG straight up as he duplicates alot of what Simmons does. They need floor spacers and if another team can send a floor spacer or two in exchange for Green plus the Dubs two first rounders then maybe there's a deal to be had. Personally I thought there was more of a deal to be had if we still had Dlo that we could throw in with both picks. Don't think Sixers want Wiggins and I think they may have better trade offers elsewhere.

I feel a bit of comfort in losing these games and it’s not even because of draft position but just knowing there’s a lot of excitement about the young pieces moving forward to add to the main guys. The last time the warriors truly sucked there wasn’t much to be hopeful about. (Not counting the Calvary returning)
