Is a like 6'2" shooting guard who is pretty old for a draft pick.

Brother lemme tell you I scrutinized Buddy Hield with the most powerful metric known to man, and he passed with flying colors and I want him on the Grizzlies roster. That metric? Did He Get Crunk Shooting The Ball On National Television In Primetime, or for short, The Eye Test

Who am I kidding. Chris Wallace will draft some combo guard with injury history who will bounce from the end of the bench to Iowa and back until one day he just simply...disappears. And for another year, Memphis fans will rest where disappointment and regret collide.

just the sort of nay-saying do-nothing reaction i'd expect from a 55,000 thought-per-day man. I gave myself seven pep-talks while writing this post, my positive thoughts per minute rate (PTPMr) humming a good 14.3% faster than the average hoodlum and you could be like me with the slight addition of n-methyl-1-phenylpropan-2-amine to your diet. Psychology is and always has been an impartial, data-driven hard science which certainly doesn't have a long and gross history as an ethically questionable discipline with a ready-made capacity for abuse and social control as an arbitrarily self-declared authority deciding what constitutes the correct human reaction to environmental stressors and it's ignorant of you to question the validity of such well-intentioned numbers

I like him but he's probably like a back half of the first round guy at best because of the things you mentioned. He's below average athletically by NBA standards, has short arms relative to his size, and doesn't do much offensively outside of the post. I think he can find a place in the league though. He plays his rear end off and rebounds like a motherfucker.

Grizz are gonna draft him

Noel is most likely gone imho. Next year is already his 4th. Okafor will also likely be traded especially if Embiid can play a full season.

So there is plenty of room for BS.

In a weak draft (at least in terms of next tier), prospects with a strong skill that translates and is at a premium in the NBA are always a good bet. This is how I talked myself into Haseem Thabeet.

But yeah, I'd take him. Shooting is a good thing to have and guys like CJ McCollum got knocked for being 6th man combo guard ceiling prospect and Harden was knocked as not athletic.

Please do not use that name without placing it in spoilers, as it is extremely triggering to me. Thank you.

Ellenson made 29% of his threes, stretch four is only a projection for him. What people seem to like is that he's a good scorer and a great ball handler for his size. He's more like a pre injury David Lee than Kevin Love. Like David Lee, he's probably not quick enough to be a good defender at pf.


Timothy needs to bring his long arms and his sloth like release to Detroit, babaaaay. I've watched him the most out of all the guys in this draft and I really like him.

I've watched more Buddy than anyone else in the draft, and that is 100% my fault. Looking around now, I need to apparently bone up on my Diamond Stone.

e. Well now DX has Denzel Valentine for Memphis. I know that he's got a gap in his choppers so big you could execute cool flight maneuvers in an a An-225 through it.

I literally saw someone on ESPN a week argue the fact that Simmons chose a "small" school like LSU over Kentucky as reason not to pick him #1 because something something he can't handle the spotlight.

These loving jackasses would have poo poo their pants thirty years ago when high draft picks and All-Americans would sometimes come out of places like Creighton and Bradley and Miami of Ohio.

If you go into your bathroom, turn the lights off, look into the mirror and say "He plays the game the right way" thirteen times Jonathan Givony appears and gives you a draft profile rife with dog whistle racism
