15 of the top 50 this year are on losing teams

And? By that math 35 of the top 50 aren't

OK, lets have some fun with analytics

From that 2018 Knox draft

Give me the top ten in WIN SHARES per 48 minutes, career

Then give me a bottom ten using just first rounders.

I will start you off

BEST is in fact our Mitchell Robinson    .230
WORST is Jacob Evans of the Warriors/moved to Wolves      -.047

Other first rounders were:

Ayton, Bagley, Doncic, Jar Jackson, T Young, Bamba, W Carter, Secton, Knox, Bridges (PHX), Shae Gilg, Bridges (CHA), J Robinson, Porter, T Brown, Z Smith, DiVincenzo, L Walker, Huerter, Okoge, G Allen, Hutchison, A Holiday, Simons, Wagner, Shamet, R Williams, Evans, Musa, Spellman.

Well.... anyway...

Win shares per 48 minutes, 2018 draftees:

1 -  Mitchell Robinson    .230

2 -  Robert Williams     .203

3 -  Luka Doncic    .151

4 -  Michael Porter Jr     .141

5 -  Donte DiVincenzo    .137

These guys are all on winning teams.  Except Mrob.  More win shares to go around when your teams actually win.

I've assumed all along the season is done.

Some talk about having playoffs in Las Vegas without fans.  This is basically the model that the China CBA came up with, but has already delayed the start.

Everything lines up for the pre-season tournament Silver wants.  Just start the 2019-2020 playoffs 8 weeks before the 2020-2021 season.   Maybe shorten next season a little bit to spread the load out.

Sounds like we agree

Don't confuse CONSIDERING trading down with definitely doing so.  It will always be offer and board dependent.

That said - no way is Haliburton a 7.

Shai Gilgous Alexander wasn't considered a top 10 pick either.

I'm not too high on Simmons.



I saw him play in the title game and was duly impressed with his speed and vision but not sure what position he would play in the NFL.  Is he a linebacker? Is he a safety?  Would rather draft someone with a more certain position on defense or go with an OT at 4 if the trade down doesn't happen.

You don't need to use the first round pick on the O-line but you better invest multiple picks there, day 2 and 3.   

I'm not too high on Simmons.

I think we are just following NBA hype. 

Do you really think he is a top 5 talent?  Should we be trading up from 7 for him?

He will be there at 7

Football / Giants defensive FA additions
« on: March 30, 2020, 05:14:21 PM »
CB J.Bradberry
LB K.Fackrell
LB B.Martinez

Also added a couple' TEs.
Lost a RT.
Added a backup QB.

Draft should be all about the O-line

Use baseball's model as a way to rank prospects.

AAA  Mitch,  RJ
AA    Frank
A      Knox

Now apply to other teams.

Basketball / Question is; Does anyone miss Morris
« on: March 12, 2020, 04:37:47 PM »
Anyone want him back?

How good arfe we if we keep everyone - if Harkless will stay on - and just add the 2/3 picks?

Is that doable financially? - I am talking keeping Bobby and Taj and Elfrid and Mo

Please dont come back with "YES, if we trade Randle"

How can anyone know the financials now?

They should do a 15-30 day quarantine.
Then begin the playoffs to empty arenas.

Knicks locked into not being one of the bottom four.  Thus locked themselves into a shittier chance at the top pick.

Could still get lucky.

Which corroborates my assertion the other day that KZ is a Top 10 2-way player.  Tatum close but below KZ on both metrics.

Someone tell BO to be a great 2-way player you need to, you know, play.
