What should Dallas do if they land the 1 pick?

1) Draft Zion
2) Draft another player
3) trade down in the draft?
4) trade for another star
5) Something else

Agree0 Disagree1

07 Mar 2019 16:34:42
Take Zion. He would fit with Doncic and Porzingis. He'll be locked in to a rookie contract. And he has the highest upside of anyone in that draft.

Trading for another star is too much of a gamble with a shorter contract. I also don't see another star that fits their two young guys that is available.

07 Mar 2019 22:01:49
Beal would be a good fit.

08 Mar 2019 02:04:48
Zion at PF porzingas at center would get crushed.

08 Mar 2019 14:51:50
How Shiller? What duo of bigs is “crushing” those two (provided they’re healthy) . Offensively, those two would be a matchup nightmare for just about anyone. Defensively, they should be able to hold their own.

09 Mar 2019 05:04:02
KP is an elite rim protector and a good overall defender. Zion has the chance to be an elite defender that can guard multiple positions, deny position inside, and protect the rim. Assuming KP comes back healthy and Zion is who we think he is, they could be the best defensive big man duo.

09 Mar 2019 22:59:03
Wishful thinking because if that pick is outside the top 5 (which it will be) it’s Atlanta’s. But to stay on topic, Zion wouldn’t be a good fit. Basketball wise, it could work. KP stretch the floor and gives Zion time to develop a mid range and eat in the paint. But the NBA is more than just basketball. NBA needs storylines. Already a good one in Dallas with Luka and KP.

11 Mar 2019 00:15:13
Kp and Zion are both off the ball shot blockers. Zion is short for most centers and porzingas is too light and fragile.

07 Mar 2019 05:43:27
Western conference playoff picture is almost set with the Spurs and Clippers getting the top 2 spots.

Let's talk about some predictions on Western Playoffs? Do you guys think?

1 No one can beat the Warriors but they will have a tough 2nd round and west finals series
2 Denver Nuggets choke in the 1st round after getting #2 seed
3 If Rockets and Jazz happens to face each other that could be hell of a series
4 Paul George mvp mode
5 Spurs could be a finalist in the West

What else?

Agree0 Disagree1

07 Mar 2019 05:54:21
I meant last 2 spots for Spurs and Clips.

07 Mar 2019 13:52:24
Spurs will not make the Finals. They would have to win on the road in pretty much every series and that has been their greatest weakness this season.

I don't see Denver choking in the first round, but I do see them losing in the second round.

05 Mar 2019 11:53:57
Who would you rather have on your team?

K walker or Irving
Beal or Hield
K Love or B Griffin
Markannen or Porzingis
D cousins or S Adams
Jokic or Kat
Giannis Antetokoumpu or J harden
Mitchell or Tatum
P George or K Leonard
M turner or R Gobert

Agree0 Disagree1

05 Mar 2019 13:53:36
Beal (may have to turn in my Kings fan club card. )
Love (Blake is Melo 2.0)
Porzingis (expecting full recovery from knee injury)
The Freak
Lenoard (because of Finals experience)

05 Mar 2019 16:41:03
Griffin (health)
Markannen (health)
Cousins (contract)
Mitchell (currently, Tatum is asking about the future)

Jokic and Gobert aren't close. The rest are pretty much toss ups when healthy and ignoring contracts.

05 Mar 2019 20:48:55

05 Mar 2019 22:22:26
Adans does all the little things. Cousins never played in a playoff game. O don't want Blake or KP on my team.

06 Mar 2019 01:18:58

06 Mar 2019 03:21:38
Adams does the little things, but gets paid like a star. If we’re ignoring contracts, I’d love to have Adams.

06 Mar 2019 18:16:57

07 Mar 2019 09:59:08
K Irving
B Griffin
S Adams
Giannis Antetokoumpu
K Leonard
R Gobert.

04 Mar 2019 22:57:46
If OKC Thunder lose in playoffs early

I think they should trade Russell Westbrook

What teams going to willing to offers get him??

Agree0 Disagree3

05 Mar 2019 04:05:17
Not as much as he’s worth.

05 Mar 2019 13:55:12
Lakers. UCLA kid.

Some offer of Ball, Kuzma and 2019 1st rounder.

05 Mar 2019 22:23:24
Okc lost early last year and spent money. They won't ever blame russ just the coach.

06 Mar 2019 00:59:58
Is losing game 7 in the second round considered "early"? That is where I see them losing to Houston or GS.

07 Mar 2019 01:11:51
OKC will struggle to get out of the first round. They aren't going to have an easy time with Portland, Houston, Utah. They could easily lose.

03 Mar 2019 04:46:32
The Lakers are painful to watch. It's too late to tank and the playoff hopes just ended tonight.

Agree8 Disagree0

02 Mar 2019 21:14:55
Realistic Lakers free agents targets imo

Pat Bev
George Hill

Reggie Bullock (resign)
Terrance Ross
JJ Reddick
Danny Green

Trevor Ariza
Darius Miller

Al-Farouq Aminu
Jeff Green

Demarcus Cousin
DeAndre Jordan
Kenneth Faried
Ed Davis

Agree4 Disagree0

03 Mar 2019 02:20:40
Outside of Cousins, that is tier III of FAs?

03 Mar 2019 13:40:17
Correct. Because few want to go to an awful team to be led by Lebron. Tier 1 and 2 want respect. You don’t get that working under Lebron.

Side note. How can anyone claim that Ingram is amazing. He is the exact same player as Wiggins. Gets his points but really doesn’t make the team better in any way.

04 Mar 2019 05:47:04
Ingram been improving on both ends its not his job to lead to wins. that's lbj job. Ingram job is to get better and he been doing that since james came back.

04 Mar 2019 14:32:07
My thing with trading for Ingram is that you only get him for one year and then you have to pay him as an RFA. May become a deal you can't move much like Wiggins.

04 Mar 2019 17:12:48
They're both very much offensively Melo light. Black hole wings that score and do little else. If Ingram was a big, he'd be Enes Kanter.

Ingram is in his third year. It's not his job to help the team win?!? What's he there for?

Also, across the board, his advanced stats are flat or down from last year. It doesn't seem like he's getting much better.

He's an inconsistent player, and has been for 1.5 years. I don't think 10 good games is changing that belief. He'll fall off in the next 10 (and, his great games aren't leading to wins, so are they great? )

04 Mar 2019 18:15:37
Classic stat chaser on a poor team.

04 Mar 2019 19:28:30
66 i agree that Ingram inconsistent.

that's y i said on my other post if he play way he is every night for rest of season then he be the better player then kuz tatum simmons and Mitchell. since allstar break he been impressive with james something tatum can't do with Irving.

04 Mar 2019 22:14:02
Mitchell is the number one option on a playoff bound team after winning a playoff series as a rookie.

04 Mar 2019 22:57:34
Yeah, Mitchell and Simmons are franchise players. They're #1 or #2 options on playoff teams. Ingram doesn't have the ability in him, I don't see it.

05 Mar 2019 05:44:24
Mitchell a number one option but he got allot of talent around him switch Mitchell with Ingram could he lead Lakers to playoffs last year don't think so.

05 Mar 2019 05:46:46
Philly had to add butler and harris to upgrade over simmons.

05 Mar 2019 16:51:08
Swap Mitchell and Ingram, Utah isn't in the playoffs last year or this year. And the Lakers would be in the playoffs right now if they swapped.

Swap Ingram and Simmons, Phili is the 5 seed. Swap them last year and Phili would have been the 8 seed instead of the 3. Phili traded for Butler and Harris to compete with the elites of the NBA to add to Simmons and Embiid. No matter what two stars you have, two isn't enough against GS.

06 Mar 2019 03:09:42
Philly added Butler and Harris to make it the finals and match up well with the Warriors, not to upgrade over Simmons.

06 Mar 2019 23:46:10
Yeah they did to stack against golden state. Boston and Toronto but they still upgraded over one there franchise player with two better players.

11 Mar 2019 11:27:48
If you think Harris and Butler are better than Simmons, you haven't been watching the games. Simmons is clearly the 2nd best player on the team.

02 Mar 2019 17:41:52
Mills, 2019 RAPS


Agree3 Disagree4

02 Mar 2019 05:46:24
If Ingram keep up his play he will be living up to his potential and better then mitchell simmons tatum and kuzma. Best player on rookie contract besides luka

Agree3 Disagree6

02 Mar 2019 06:02:31
If KCP keeps what he's doing, he will be the next Jr Smith.

02 Mar 2019 17:06:53
And he has a minimium of years worth of experience on these other rookies (Simmons missed his first year) . He should be ahead of these other guys. Or these guys will be better than Ingram when they hit their 4th year actually playing in the league is another way of looking at it.

02 Mar 2019 17:40:42
Ingram has been goodm but Mitchell has been number one option for 2 years and lead his team to playoffs and yes won a series.

03 Mar 2019 08:45:22
But can he lead any team to play offs.

I mean i'm not talking his old play i'm talking now till end of year. He been putting up 27 plus with being efficient. If he keep up that something mine those players did. Even though the lakers losing he doing his part on both ends.

04 Mar 2019 17:16:00
In no way is Ingram close to Mitchell or Simmons. They blow him out of the water in every category (advanced stats, traditional stats, eye test) .

And I'd take Tatum over Ingram because I don't see either as a #1 option, but Tatum is the muuuuuuch better complimentary player to most stars.

02 Mar 2019 05:19:50
If you are DEN at number 2, who would you like to face in the 1st round?

Kings,Clippers,Spurs or Lakers?

Agree0 Disagree1

02 Mar 2019 06:20:13
Spurs. Without a Point guard Derozan is shouldering too much of the load.

02 Mar 2019 17:08:14
Spurs. They cannot win on the road so as long as you have home court advantage.

02 Mar 2019 18:18:21
The clippers or Kings. I’ll take the lesser talent (clippers) or zero experience (Kings) .

03 Mar 2019 00:06:28
Now who among them have a legit chance of beating DEN?

04 Mar 2019 14:34:07
7 seeds very rarely have a "legit" chance of upsetting 2 seeds.

04 Mar 2019 17:19:52
The Lakers could just because of the Lebron effect. If he's peak Lebron, he can beat teams single handedly. I don't think he's peak Lebron, but putting together 4 games is possible.

I also think the Spurs could. Aldridge and Derozan are built for playoff basketball when the game slows down. And Pop is one of the best in game coaches of all time. I wouldn't bet on the Spurs, but it wouldn't shock me if they upset someone.

But yeah, as Fredman said, there's a reason they're 7 seeds. Denver should roll any of those teams in 5 or 6 games. They're talented and deep.

02 Mar 2019 00:30:39
Good job locking up Bledsoe. Hope they do the same with Middleton.
