I heard he's been a bit of a ball hog this year because his team's just not as talented this year and he has to take over the scoring. He dished out 12 assists yesterday though.

The thing I like about him is he can get by anyone, he's got excellent quickness, speed, ball handling, and lateral quickness. He does a good job on D keeping guys in front of him. The main knock is his height. He'll probably get posted up a lot. He's got a toughness about him that I like too and is a good leader. I think he's a top 10 pick but probably not a top 5. It's all Irving or Barnes for me. I wouldn't mind trading down if we don't get one of them.

I don't really think there is anyone in this draft that can make a serious impact on our team outside of irving.

I know a lot of people love barnes, but that is all based on high school hype. He still looks like a lottery pick in this soft draft, but I'm not that high on him.

From watching Bayless recently a lot more. I wouldn't mind him being a backup. I like his defense. Again, this is assuming we do something with Barbosa. There is no need for both of them on the team. Bayless and Barbosa would play the same role for a team. Barbosa is more of an offensive threat. Bayless plays better D, and is still learning the game. They both are a spark-plug combo guard...
