Zeke is not going to show his hand.
We will know who he drafts when he picks.
I say if Almond is there he's our guy.
If he's taken earlier maybe Isiah will make a trade for him.
I don't think we need any big men. We need to keep working with the one's we have.
They are all very young and developing, yes they have certain deficiencies.
All players do and hopefully in time they will do the work necessary to improve and raise their playing level.
I have not given up on Frye, Lee is going to be an awesome player next season. Balkman is going to be very good if he starts shooting better. I haven't given up on Jefferies, yet, and he's still young. Curry has improved more than any other player I have ever seen in this past year. Morris has an NBA ready body and looks comfortable on the court, we really don't know what he's capable of doing. We won't for another 2 years.
Let's look at the facts, there are no quick fixes and this team is being built for the long haul.
We have 6 big men on this team that are all young and talented. It won't be for another 2-3 years until we see who does what. By that time all these young players will be veterans and they will be who they are. You have to crawl before you walk and walk before you run. These guys are just finding their walking legs.
We have to be patient and I hope Isiah is too. I trust Isiah's talent assessment and judgment, he's proven himself there.
Some of us are older men and some are young on this forum.
Take it from me, some times young men wake up and the light bulb goes off in their heads. They turn into great players when that happens. Some times by being a great player it mean learning your limitations and developing a niche or style of play that makes you an important player on the roster. It might not mean being a starter or all star, it might just mean learning to be a role player and doing your job.
Your job in BBall is to play defense, pass the ball to the open man and hit the jumper if it's in your range, maybe drive if you have an open lane.
You might not have a postup game or 3 point range or shot blocking ability. just play good fundamentals and start from there.
So maybe Morris will be a backup C/PF and play 30 minutes a game providing some defense and an inside presence when Curry is not in the game, we don't know that yet. Maybe Frye never starts and becomes a bench player who gives us quality minutes. Maybe Lee develops a consistent jump shot and low post moves and turns into an All Star. Maybe Balkman starts hitting 3 pointers and with his work inside becomes a really good player for us.
We won't know this for a few seasons.
Hey maybe Nate matures and learns to play the point.......nay, never happen, sorry I got too excited.
OK now I'm really going to take a long stretch and say maybe James has a heart to heart with Isiah over cheese burgers. He then commits himself to getting in shape and giving quality minutes as a defensive presence and shot blocker and takes his job seriously instead of being a clown.........that's a real stretch isn't it.....
