He had no choice since we continually eff up our draft picks. I'm not complaining about him whatsoever but he needs to clean up the drafting due to the lack of assets moving forward now. Thankfully, much like hockey, there are always going to be GMs that'll bail you out of your bad moves/contracts, so we'll see what happens. He earned himself a long leash, that's for sure.

I think you guys go LeBron mode now, hasn't it been like some crazy period of time since his team has actually kept their 1st round pick?

The connection was just made for me, I remember being super high on Nwora when he was at UL. He was projected as a lottery pick at one point, dude is a hooper.

My bad, Nwora didn't start that game vs Chicago, he just got big minutes. When he got more than 20 minutes, he posted...

vs NYK - 36 minutes, 21 points, 7-18 shooting (4-8 3pt FG)
vs CHA - 32 minutes, 24 points, 9-16 shooting (4-10 3pt FG)
vs ORL - 20 minutes, 11 points, 5-12 shooting (1-5 3pt FG)
vs CHI - 36 minutes, 34 points, 14-23 shooting (4-8 3pt FG)

Of course, we also went 1-3 in those games but he proved he belongs on an NBA court in those showings.

He's a bucket getter, for sure.

DD still on the team, and a really important role player still getting better.

I do believe so and I'm excited about it. He flashed quite a bit for us in limited action. Started that meaningless game vs the Bulls and dropped 34 points on 14-23 shooting (4-8 3pt FG).

I liked him last year. I want him to do well...mostly because I want Milwaukee to stay on top until Memphis dethrones you in 3 years.

I really like the 3 rookies we had on our roster last year. Think they all could be contributors in specific roles. Nwora as a microwave scorer, Merrill as a shooter/emergency ball handler and Diakite as Giannis' primary backup.

No I mean LeBron's teams, they almost never use their first round picks or have rookies on their team, they trade them for guys that can contribute immediately. With the Bucks just winning a title I think they'll follow in that mindset.

Still can't believe we took Shabazz Muhammad #14, one pick ahead of Giannis... Poverty.

Yes, Memphis is definitely making some great moves in terms roster construction, Bledsoe and Adams is just the start of the Grizzles take over szn.

If we keep our pick, it's going to take quite a reach for me to be upset with who we take. Which, of course, I wouldn't necessarily put past Jon Horst lol.

Oohhhhh, gotcha. My bad.

Off the top of my head, the last time a LeBron team had a 1st and kept it, was 2018 if it counts. Both Cleveland and LA had 1sts and kept them. Of course LA traded Wagner the next summer haha.

If that doesn't count then I'm not sure I remember.

Jalen Green is going be special, I see the next great shooting guard. 

The top-4 teams really lucked out.  Houston is getting one of the most exciting/intriguing prospects in recent years and Cleveland/Toronto are getting right below elite-tier players.  Cade has questions but he’s a no brainer for that franchise.
