    Jalen Green finna bust, b/c he cares more about his "brand" than actually winning.

    I talked to a friend about this topic - the mentality of the young players now. Like when Cam Reddish hits a 3 while down 15 pts and acts like he won a title. What the league will look like in 5, 10 years when 80% of players in the league no longer even prioritize winning, just their brand, their stats, etc. At least it'll be the death of artificial superteams, most likely.

    Cavs take center Evan Mobley at No. 3 overall.

    Won a lot of Pac-10 awards, including the conference's defensive player of the year.

    Brings both offense and defense. So many skills.

    Iím excited for Jalen Green. I think he has a ton of potential, and I like his mentality. You can tell he wants to be really good and he has all the talent to be that

    At No. 4, Raptors take forward Scottie Barnes

    Multiple Olympic gold medals already

    A defender. Only scored 10 ppg. Unusual for someone with shooting problems to go this high in the draft.

    The Magic at No. 5 have drafted guard Jalen Suggs.

    Averaged 14, 5 and 5 at Gonzaga last season

    Known as a leader.

    Was a football star as a kid too.

    I have to hope GSW picks Kuminga, even tho I'd rather have Davion. But Davion would be a bit of a reach. But...reaches are okay these days lol.

    At No. 6, the Thunder took Josh Giddey, a guard from Australia

    No college. He put up 11, 7 and 8 as a very young pro in Australia's main league, the NBL.

    It's still a very questionable pick, all things considered. I do like Scottie's defense but I just don't understand the logic behind taking him if you're Toronto. You already have Siakam, and Jalen along with the other Jalen is considered one of those rare players who will be able to develop very quickly into the NBA. He's not a guy you can pass up on if he's available, especially when you consider the fact that Toronto needs to fill that position. I just don't get it.

    cool, Kuminga to GSW, hope he stays. And hope #14 is someone like Kispert or a Baylor guard.

    At No. 7, the Warriors drafted forward Jonathan Kuminga, who played for the G League's Ignite team. He put up 17, 7 and 3 for the Ignite.

    And with the No. 8 pick, the Magic drafted forward Franz Wagner, from Germany originally, and Michigan for college ball.

    Kings better pick Moses Moody. He was born on the day they lost to LAL in Game 6 back in 2002. So he's like the savior of Sac lol.
