One step closer to Marvin Williams!
Considering we don't have a true superstar(Zach may be there in a year or 2 and the same could be said for Telfair is he keeps up his game), we need impact, young talent right now. We need a franchise guy to take this team on their back. That is why I said this draft is only 2 deep if Marvin comes out, because a franchise guy is what we need in the worst way.BlazerFanFoLife said:I think everyone is undervaluing some international prospects. There is always one or two of them that come into predraft camp and awe everyone. I think this draft is deeper in overall tallent then the prior. I think a lot more players could be had. This is a deep draft but without many defined superstar players
No, but we could always trade for another pick......last year we traded Eddie Gill, who played like 2 minutes a game in scrub time for the #22 pick......I'm sure we could give up a little more than that and get a early to mid teens pick and grab up Rudy Fernandez.....I could easily see a guy like Antoine Wright or Raymond Felton being great players in the league, but in our current situation would it be smart to trade down a take a bigger risk on one of these players to be a go to guy?
I think that would be a great idea. A player like Ruben, Damon, or Van Excel could really help a playoff team with the 15th or so pick.zagsfan20 said:I'm sure we could give up a little more than that and get a early to mid teens pick and grab up Rudy Fernandez.....
I would think that we could do better, 5th place isn't good enough......Portland needs to be a top three pick and I am sure that this team won't let us down. I think that towards the bitter end of the season we won't see the likes of Damon or Rahim, just the young ones.Fork said:Golden State is up big in the 4th. We lost.

considering no one expected Dwyane Wade to be as good as he is (not even Tlong), I don't know if I'd be too upset.NateBishop3 said:It's just too bad that the year we get in the top five of the lottery there isn't really a definitive super star in the draft.

I like him and I don't he would be a good matchup for Telfair in the back court to cover some of Telfair's lack of a vertical dimension. His shot is good and I like his D. However his attitude kind of scares me. He seems like if he wasn't the go to guy he wouldn't be happy I could see playing time issues coming out with him.kaydow said:What do you guys think about F. Garcia from Louisville as a late 1st round guy? His game reminds me of Shane Battier--he can shoot, defend, & he's a leader. While he isn't a "creat my own shot" guy, I'm impressed with his feel for the game. I know he would likely play SF, and we are loaded there already, but this guy can knock it down from deep.
I think most players in this league get use to the fact that they arnt the "go to guy" like they were in college......He seems like if he wasn't the go to guy he wouldn't be happy I could see playing time issues coming out with him.
I disagree about the luck part. I'm with Hap regarding Wade -- it seems to me that there's nearly always somebody (often several somebodies, eventually) who becomes a great player. When there's someone like James, Duncan, or Shaq, it's a pretty sure thing and, we're not really in position to get a guy like that right now. Many of the best players in league history were late first round or even second round picks.NateBishop3 said:It's just too bad that the year we get in the top five of the lottery there isn't really a definitive super star in the draft.
