    I saw Fox and that dude is athletic as hell. Is he is the most athletic SG/SF in this draft?

Jackson is a very nice talent but he has a ways to go to be a good fit with the two blue chippers in Philly.
    Yeah, from a fit standpoint, a point guard would have been ideal. But when you're picking that high, just take the best player available.

    Personally, I would take Jackson over Ball (and maybe Fultz depending on the team). There are a ton of really good point guards in the NBA that they could snag in free agency.

    Finding a potentially scary two-way wing like Jackson is much more difficult. They're still set up really nicely.

    Ainge has a while series versus Cleveland to make up his mind. I am hoping the pick is dealt for Anthony Davis or Porzingis myself.

    LOL. Yeah, I haven't watched any college this year. His wingspan is listed at 6'0". That can't be real.

    I am so glad I just moved out of LA up NorCal

    Barely avoided the lamelo infestation of hipster children and what this will add from a stupid media perspective

    But yea three Kings obviously won this draft

    Vlade is looking potentially like a top 3 GM from an unbiased perspective at this point

    Danny better explore trade options this summer. Fultz could be a nice player but I'd want to see if we can get something for him.

    Justify it to who? The fans wont accept letting him walk. The basketball people who want to build on their great season wont either. You dont need to justify it.

    Kent Bazemore makes 18 million dollars in this league. Dudes who have never been allstars have 153 million dollar deals. The second best players on 45 win teams make 120 million.

    Thomas is getting paid and he should. They have the money and the cap is still going up. Doesnt matter what Lonzo might be in 5 years.

    Hell hes big enough to put at the 2. They will find him minutes no matter what if hes good.

    The money wont be a big factor. Thomas deal would be in its last year when Lonzo is what? 23? 24?

    He might be in the NBA till 2035.

    They can afford to try to win now and see what they have in him.

    They dont really have to choose.
