  1. 2019 NBA Draft Thread

    Percentage wise, he didn't shoot well tonight, but the difference between February Cam Reddish and December/January Cam Reddish has been night and day. He's been playing so much more confident and has been lights out defensively. He also isn't turning it over everytime he drives like he was before. Looking every bit like the top 5 pick he was hyped up to be entering the season.

    I never thought I'd see a game for Duke that rivaled the Maryland "Miracle Minute" in 01, but this comeback may. This was an amazing comeback/collapse!!!!

    I'm just saying it's unfair to say he doesn't count as a "generational prospect" due to injuries suffered in the NBA. What happened once he entered the NBA is moot when talking about him as a prospect.

    I don't think that's fair. Oden as a draft prospect, was considered every bit as generational as those other guys. The way Durant was thought to be a generational scorer as a prospect, Oden was considered a generational defensive big as a prospect.

    It's unfair when Duke is hitting shots like this. We'll see if it'll continue.

    And here I thought a fanbase couldn't get any weirder than the Cameron Crazies.

    I'm no scout but I'd say the main difference is Lebron had elite passing skills/vision as a prospect. Zion is a pretty good passer but he's far below Lebron in that aspect. Also, I believe Lebron was a slightly better shooter than Zion at this stage. I'd say Lebron was more built in the mold of huge guard as a prospect(freakish Magic Johnson), while Zion is more built in the mold of undersize 4/new age small ball 4(freakish Charles Barkley/Larry Johnson).

    I'll just throw my 2 cents regarding Zion and then I'll leave it alone(I'm know he'll be discussed ad neuseam during draft season). Fair warning but this will be a bit of a long post I say the following as a Duke fan and a huge Zion fan. He may already be my favorite Blue Devil ever. However, the coverage and hype around him has become too much even for my liking . You have Dickie V slobbin' over him in every game he calls, Scottie Pippen saying he's the best prospect since Jordan, ESPN highlighting just about every single thing he does, and the list goes on and on. It's like they're setting him and fans up for disappointment. It feels like if he doesn't come in and average 20/5/5 as a rookie and immediately turn a franchise around, he'll be considered a bust/disappointment. The great thing is Zion deals with this massive hype and expectations as well as any player his age can. And even with the overbearing hype, he's having as good a college season as we've seen in a long, long time. His raw stats are hella impressive, his advanced stats are absurd and even his synergy stats are out of this world.... Add that to his highlight reel playstyle(he's also more skill than I think he gets credit for), his unique build and a pretty chrismastic personality and I get the hype. I just thinking he's the next Lebron and thinking he'll turn around a franchise in day 1 is setting him up for failure. So the TL:DR version-I believe Zion is one of the best prospects we've seen in the last 10-15 years. However the hype at times is too much and filled with hyperbole, which is setting him up for what would be failure/disappointment in the eyes of many.

    Just thinking how Khris Middleton would be perfect for the Kings.
  10. Rookie watch thread, other than Doncic

    Without a doubt his best game as a pro. Legit looked like hybrid of Chris Bosh and Amar'e Stoudemire.

    Salary dumping Porzingis is a bold, bold move.

    Zion was matched up against a legit NBA wing prospect in DeAndre Hunter who has the physical makeup and profile of a number of NBA players Zion will go against(6'8" 222 with a 7'2" wingspan). He was too strong for him at times and blew by him a number of times. There's a difference between good/great athletes vs. a freak, once a decade type athlete. In recent drafts, we've seen a number of athletic wings/bigs(Wiggins/J.Jackson/Bagley just to name a few) We haven't seen a guy this big, athletic with plus ball handling skill since maybe Blake Griffin and before that, LeBron(and no I am NOT saying he'll be the next LeBron).

    I don't know how he'd fit beside Collins but I'd love Zion in ATL. Add Zion plus the Mavs lottery pick to the young core of Young/Collins/Huerter and it could be the beginning of something special. He and JJJ in Memphis would be a fun pairing too. Could be a lethal duo down the line.
  15. Like you said, with basketball(college and pros) I always go with the year the season ends. I thought it was common knowledge.
