A short Greives Vasquez sounds a player that should not be drafted

Ah ok

Vasquez is slow but can shoot.

Forget about the quality of player that is in the comparison. It is just being used to give you a better idea of the actions the prospect takes while playing. For a (bad) example, Royce White played similar to LeBron. Doesn't mean Royce was the next LeBron. Just meant that he plays point forward.

I know how these are supposed to work my guy.


Your post is exactly why I said I liked the comparisons in the last thread. I guess your confusion is I dont think Vasquez is a good player and a shorter guy with his STYLE sounds dreadful. Not that he will literally be Vasquez

Is Embiid still the hyped first overall or has that cooled off

Maybe one day that pick will sprout into Nick Calathes. The Mavs will find another Euro project and trade him away when he is finally ready to come over. All I want the Mavs to do with their second round draft pick is to take a center that probably won't work out. Hopefully they get another end of rotation player like Crowder.

Dude I wish Crowder would get good at anything at all

This team is awful at drafting so I wouldnt get my hopes up even if we had a top 5

The Cavs got bluffed into drafting Dion Waiters by a lottery promise his agent completely made up, don't even act like they can't be tricked into drafting a crippled center.

Ah gently caress I completely forgot about this and here I was wondering why "Cleveland will gently caress this up lol :rolleye: " was the theme of the thread

One of my teammates was from Alaska and rivals with Boozer growing up. They became pals and kept in touch in college, and I've seen him "AND ONE!" in person, it's every bit as amazing as you would think. He also only buttoned the top button of his plaid shirt when we went out that night and looked like a giant cholo.

My friend played for Xavier and I hung out with him one summer, West played dirty as gently caress in a glorified scrimmage and talked poo poo incessantly at nobody in particular. He was also incredulous that I (a 6'5 white guy) would dare challenge his shots and then (despite him playing at full intensity the entire time so far) declared "this poo poo is on." I guess that meant he was going to hit harder and hold twice as much, which is basically what he did.

Saric is a legit prospect and the only real knock on him is that he probably won't be coming overseas right away. Also his mess rear end teeth

REAL MAD Dallas couldn't draft him last year. Tho Shane Larkin or young El Debarge as I like to call him may have something

And now we have no significant pick in a loaded draft. This rebuild will go just swell
