good mix of shooting and defense

That's a heck of a lot better than any five that they put on the floor last year. Twenty-five to thirty win team with this coaching staff. I doubt that they're in for the #1 pick unless it's the Lakers selection.

if we can get PG together I agree. otherwise we might be worse than Denver.

W/O a doubt PG is the critical position to fill right now. The other pieces are, at the least, NBA respectable.

Marshall will give them a guard that fits the system and how they intend to run it I think. I don't think he's capable of being a starter on a winning team running the system, but we will get a good look at the framework at least
Continued success, thanks for comin' on the show!

I don't understand how a team with top 5 draft picks the last 3+ years can still look so bad? I just don't get what Hinkie is doing.

the last twenty years are littered with teams who took way longer than three (and we're only at two now) years to get out of the basement

thought they merely looked mediocre not bad in the 2nd half. hard to watch these guys tho, admittedly. was staring at the ceiling and my phone for a bit.

Man if Wood really can pull his head out of his ass and make me a believer he's got a chance. Would be the ultimate steal.

It looks bad because Hinkie hasn't signed vets to supplement those top 5 picks.

Noel is probably better at basketball, today anyway, than anyone drafted in the last 3 years. Okafor is probably better at basketball, again, today anyway, than anyone drafted this past June. And Embiid was projected as better than either of them when healthy. So the issue isn't that our draft picks are somehow not elite basketball players for their age. Maybe you just need to readjust your expectations of how good "top 5" picks are when they are still 19-21 years old?

Look at the elite players in the NBA: It's Anthony Davis and a bunch of guys 25-30 years old.

Hinkie is banking his 19-21 year olds being able to develop into those elite 25-30 year olds without having to invest in veterans in the meantime.
Two days later I get a text back that says I'm a basketball player and a businessman, not a Thundercat.
