its ok bismack is as good as davis when it comes to shot blocking and rebounding .... what you need is a player that could really set the difference ... i dont know who .... i think you can package that with dj augustine +2nd pick to possible get i dont know who .. but goodluck...
We all thought the system was rigged when Cleveland got the #1 pick when homeboy LeBron was in the draft. We all knew it was rigged when Chicago beat all the odds to land Rose. Stern obviously had a deal with Benson: buy the Hornets and you'll get the #1 pick and an all-star game. Makes me want to vomit.
trade dj since this is a weak point guard draft to get another lottery pick ...
Speaking of Augustin, I hope Chicago can take him in exchange for the pick we gave up from the trade for Tyrus Thomas. Rose won't return to game shape for probably another full year so we have a chance to "erase" one of our past mistakes.
I know its not optimistic, but the reason Diop got as much money as he did is because he had promising seasons in his first couple of years like Biyombo did.
Which is what the front office decided to do with Tyrus Thomas two seasons ago.
Biyombo, imo if he can be as good as a young Okafor he'll be a solid pick, but having said that, he does have a long way to go.
Anyway I think Thomas will bounce back next year. Last year's lockout really damaged this team beyond imagination. No summer camp, no full length training camp, no conditioning for many players, and it appeared as though some players just forgot how to play basketball.
Unless averaging 2 pts 4 rebounds and a block a game is a promising season than Diop didn't have a promising season in his career until he averaged 2 points 1.8 blocks and 4.5 rebounds with the Mavs in 06. Kind of a bad comparison.
Hope you are joking about taking Sullinger or Jones with the 2nd pick also.
