2021 NBA Draft Thread


Recommended Posts

Josh giddy will bust. Classic skinny overseas white boy who will amount to nothing. Really wouldn’t make sense for Memphis to target him.

No we want Bouknight over that. After the top 6 of this class it falls off a cliff

Bouknight isn't a top 6 prospect in this class though, lol.

The Athletic has Bouknight 9th, ESPN has Bouknight 8th, the Ringer has Bouknight 7th, and NBADraft.net has Bouknight 7th.

The Pistons were reportedly super high on Wiseman last year so I could see them liking Mobley. 

If they’d be interested in Mobley I’m definitely trying everything I can as a Cavs fan to get Cade

I think it'd come down to how much the Pistons like Collin Sexton. If they believe he's a legit max contract player then #3 + Sexton for #1 is a deal that could work. But if they don't they'll probably just keep Cade.

Also hilarious that we've just seen two other young guards go to the NBL then play well as rookies with guys like LaMelo and RJ Hampton. But Josh Giddey is destined to bust when he has had success in the same league. 

Yet Poku is supposedly one of the greatest draft prospects in history.

Yea he is he’s a sniper who can score from anywhere in the court and has that grown man mindset already about wanting to shoulder the scoring burden. Kuminga and all these other guys are just potential that’s it

Josh giddy is gonna bust because his name is josh. I’ve done this with other prospects before due to their name. There’s a psychology behind it and how you craft your own identity based on the way your name sounds when spoken to you. Josh is a death sentence if you want a grown man out of the lottery pick.

Ok and Sam Presti has already took him out to dinner and picked the player. Trying to go with the consensus gets you spurned. James Bouknight should be 5th above Barnes. The league is about getting buckets and he’s got that it factor to him and is still a good defender

Whenever we took Westbrook 3rd overall he was like the 8th or 9th consensus best player but Presti said he after he met with Westbrook he could feel the future regret if he passed on this kid. 
 

same situation here with Bouknight. He’s got the name, he’s got the look, he’s got the swag, watch an interview of his and you can tell hes not still trying to figure out how to be a man like Kuminga or Josh or some of these other little kids

He's a sniper that shot 29% from 3 and 17% in C&S situations?

Bouknight isn't a consistent shooter or defender though, have you ever seen him play?

College 3pt% isn’t the best predictor of NBA 3pt%. Volume of attempts and FT% is a better predictor which he has working in his favor. Last year he was also battling thru an elbow injury which is obvious because he shot 34% from 3 as a freshman. Plus he was hitting every shot throughout the draft workouts which brought his stock up to pick 6.

the kid is obviously a great shooter just had a few games where his shot wasn’t right but he was hurt. You’re not great at shooting off the dribble and that bad off of c&s it’s just a small sample size
