but Knicks might do it and take Young







heh

Harold Minor comes to mind.  Someone said hey he's Jordan-like. Let's call him the Air Apparent.

Just cuz Young has a jumper doesn't make him Steph Curry.

Wow - what a stat!

Young faced a double team on 43.7% of possessions beyond midcourt, most since when Curry was at Davidson (31%)

5. Mikal Bridges, F, Villanova: The 6’6”, 210-pound Bridges fits the mold of a Bulls’ draft pick, spending three years in college while winning two national titles. He’s arguably the best 3-and-D prospect in the draft, as he shot 43.5 percent from behind the arc in his junior campaign. His lack of physicality (28.2 percent free-throw rate) is concerning, though. Playing alongside Wildcats’ point guard Jalen Brunson forced him to become less of an isolation player. Even if the Bulls desperately want to add a wing with their first pick, the Malvern, Pa. native’s ceiling isn’t nearly as attractive the aforementioned prospects.

There was more bad basketball and bad decisions in that qtr than they had in the past 15 games.

Ditto for most of the 2nd qtr.

The lack of focus and discipline is surprising and a real problem.

the crater they dug for themselves in the 1st qtr was too deep

they fought back in the 2nd half.

and they played some decent D

but that 1st qtr...

Jaylen had a rough 1st half.
Missed dunk, blocked by Korver.
But came back.  Alos liked whne he dove to retrieve a loose ball.

Korver gave CLE very solid minutes.
Played some gritty defense,  3 blocks and 5 fouls.
He's been working hard the past 2 games.  I liked in G2 when he deflected the ball from Rozier to break up a BOS fast break and then dove for the loose ball.

CAVS might want to stop having JeffGreen take the ast shot at end of quarters.  LeBJ is often getting a 2 minute breather, and Green misses the last shot.  I liked in G2, when Green got a rebound with 4.6 secs left, dribbled up court and shot after 5 secs.  Er.  missed too.  let Jearl or Clarkson heave something up.

Or there may be a subtle difference between liking and talking up.

Bravo.



I think Ayton goes #1. I also think I'd take Doncic instead.

I'm sure the Portland Trailblazers are consoling themselves with that nugget, as they contemplate the Earthly Remains Of Sam Bowie & Greg Oden vs. Michael Jordan & Kevin Durant.  

As for our Knicks, I would offer up my mother to Hamas for a shot at Doncic, who could be the second coming of Drazen Petrovic (save, DP was not 6'8").  

[PS: My Mom is presently In Valhalla, and can take a joke].

Looks like Porter is going to fall into Dallas' lap.

One way or another, at #9, we get a player.  

It's all on how Phoenix and Sacramento go.  

As you [BIZ] point out, the old big vs. skill conundrum.  

Talent?  Need?  

They already have Josh Jackson as a SF.  

Centers?  Tyson Chandler, Alex Lin.

PF?  Chriss and Bender.  

Hard to see how they pass on Ayton.  

Kings?

Hard to see them passing on Doncic, but they could go for Bagley.  

If Doncic falls below #2, could have a ripple effect, as #3 & #4 picks figure to be bigs. 

Does Doncic fall beyond Dallas, especially if Porter has been picked beforehand? 



Logic may seldom work BUT Doncic doesn't want the Kings and would prefer they pass.

not likely.

Arizona should take the 7 footer and Bagley goes third.

Bomba goes 4 or 5 to me.   his upside as a rim protector is unique.

Boston went up 2-0.

Just feels like how the Yanks went up 3-2 in the ALCS vs the Astros.  You knew they only needed one of two back in Houston.

But it didn't feel like they were going to beat one of those aces to get the 4th win.

You have to beat LeBron 4 times.

Now Boston has squandered their chance to do it.  They may win Game 5.  But LeBron is not losing this series.

I feel more or less the same way.
Pressure's on BOS for G5.
Lose that and there's no way they win G6 on the Road.
Win G5, and force CLE to win G6 setting up a G7 in BOS.

I miss the 1st round ...
