Re: Draft Winner & Losers

Rivers is more chucker than shooter. He is never going to be able to play the point because of his mentality and his total lack of ability as a point guard. Given his size it's hard to believe he's ever going to be more than a run of the mill sixth man.

What about his size? Dude measured out at 6'5". He's 1/4" shorter than Jeremy Lamb. He's taller than Bradley Beal, John Jenkins, Doron Lamb, and Dion Waiters.

He's comparable to James Harden and Tyreke Evans, and taller than Marcus Thornton, OJ Mayo, and Eric Gordon.

Basically, he doesn't have to play the point. He has SG size.

Now, he might be looking at the 6th man role in N'awlins, but they seem committed to running him and EG at the same time. Honestly, it probably doesn't matter who plays the 1 and who plays the 2. The Hornets are trying to create a Monta Ellis/Stephen Curry kind of backcourt, and it could work.

if EG will stay healthy , they dont really need EG ... and if they are planning in matching his offer shit so i also dont understand why they draft rivers..only if they want to trade him

I don't really see anyone drafted after Ross that's in anyway superior. While the 2012 draft was deep, it's in terms of NBA rotation players, not stars. The Raptors desperately needed a shooting guard that can actually shoot the ball, and occasionally play some defense. Neither of which DeRozan does. Swinging for the fences with Drummond was certainly an option, but that was a really high risk move with a team that couldn't afford a bust.
im not a J.Lamb fan but i think he is a better player than Ross.. his long wingspan will help him in the league..and if so why the hell they need fields if ross will answer all the thing you mentioned.. also they could have gotten a SF , which they really need

Celtics picked up a pair of quality big men, and having a players with so much experience, I wouldn't be surprised if they turned out to be one of the winners! they actually deserve it a lot.

Of course, while you spend the next 3-4 years waiting on the new guy to develop your keystone player will just be getting older and you'll waste a good portion of his prime, but you're the Incrediblazers! And Incrediblazers don't ever trade kids.
This is funny to read.
