2019 Draft Discussion

We have 1 first rounder and 3 second round picks this time out.

Let the discussion begin... (but probably not seriously until midseason)

according to this we only have one 2nd round pick which will most likely end up being houston's and in the late 50s.

I know very little about the prospects but i like the footage i've seen of the french kid sekou, zion, little, and barrett.
sekou seems like a point forward with a nice touch and athleticism. zion reminds me of julius randle, little of andre igoudala and barrett of kobe.

i'd be surprised if the knicks have a Cinderella story like boston did this season, so I'm expecting a lottery pick.

My bad, 2021 and 22 picks were lumped in, was skimming. Ok, so we'd better choose wisely :LOL:

That Duke lineup, Barrett and Reddish are impressive, but that Zion Williamson kid is the next Barkley. Dunno if he'll win a title, but he's entertaining as hell.

Check out Digue Diawara, a 6'9" swing with a 7'2" wingspan from France, this is a bit older footage from a year ago, FIBA U18:

i was too young to see college larry johnson but Zion is the best explosive athlete ive seen outside of Lebron....they may be the same actually.

just wild that zion is 40 pounds heavier than Lebron was at that age.

The young LJ was athletic, but not take off from the foul line athletic. Zion has set a new peak for hops in a guy his size with that strength, speed. Kinda interested to see with his mass if he can be a brutal screener, roll to the hoop. Just get him going downhill...

Yeah, his weight could be a concern as he ages, also whether he ages gracefully as Don noted. Will he have game without the explosive hops? LJ made the transition but it still wasn't easy.

Zion has a year to get a jumper and use his right hand.

and 3 or 4 years to lose 15 pounds

the better he is the more pro tank I am lol

Now that I see what he is at 285, him at 265 would be scary. Even now he gets up there but it would be even more explosive and fast burst. 265 is still NBA PF weight. I wanna see him box out and play moves. I see him as Milsap on steroids.
