Tell you what, this Jordan Matthews kid looks pretty good.  Is he on the draft radar?


Jaylen Brown has been unimpressive.  In fact, his poor defense and ballhandling have stood out to me, as opposed to anything positive.  He should probably stay in school another year, but I suspect his draft stock will be too high after workouts.

Yeah, was high on Brown but this unimpressive showing might hit his draft stock. Which is good for us I think.

I really believe there is still a ton to work with there, and if he drops, he could be withing reach if we could move up using the Dallas and our pick.

California, though, man. I have them going to the Elite 8, very unimpressive perfomance.
Yeah, I have no interest in drafting him with the Brooklyn pick anymore, but if we can use the Mavs pick to trade up a few spots and grab him I would be happy. He looks like all he can do is score in transition.

On the other hand, I think Rabb has looked like a top 10 pick.

The interior defense on this Cal team is awful.

Cal ended up winning it all in my "Flip a Coin" and "Mascots" brackets, so them losing here would screw those up pretty bad. :P


Jaylen Brown just reminds me more and more of Terrence Williams.

I'm definitely biased but Malachi Richardson of Syracuse is gonna be a baller.  Already is pretty good for the college level.

Safe to say that Hawaii will pull the upset. Cal very awful today, Jordan Matthews and Ivan Rabb helped their draft stock a bit, while Jaylen Brown looks like could use another year in school, or be contended to be a 6-10 pick.

Meanwhile...

Michigan State has 13 minutes to escape what could be the biggest upset of the year. Middle Tennessee has given their best punch and their holding them off.

I picked MSU to win the whole thing. I have never had my title team losing in the first round. I've been watching the Cal game, do you know why MSU is playing so poorly.

I was watching the Cal game as well, so I'm not sure why they are playing bad.

I did however caught the start of that game. They went down 15-2 early. I guess it's a case of a lead gotten too big and MSU still playing catchup.

I have MSU as the National Champs as well, but I love an upset, and this could be the BIGGEST upset brewing right now! I would not mind this at all.

Friends don't let friends draft Syracuse players.

Let them waste somebody else's money learning how to play NBA ball their first 4-5 years in the league.

A GM who uses a top 10 pick on a guy like Jaylen Brown, with no discernible NBA level skill, doesn't like his job very much.

I'm sure he'll be a decent NBA player 5-6 years after he enters the league, like many Syracuse products.

So Cal loses & Michigan State is in trouble at the moment.  Quite the game window right now.

Eh? He's still athletically gifted. And there are some core guys for Cal that are missing. Kid is 19 and knows how to get to the rim and be a weapon in transition. All we saw today is just telling us he needs a lot more work to be complete than people normally though.

I probably won't take him in the top 3 however, but I'd gamble on him on a top 5-10 pick. There's still a good amount of upside there.

I'd let him go back to school with the hope of building his skills and becoming a top 5 pick, or I'd let somebody else take the risk in the top 10.

If he fell to the end of the lottery, I'd take a chance.

But there isn't a single thing he does I would feel confident in him doing at the NBA level, other than finishing an open dunk, and that's a lowwww bar.  I like my top 10 picks to have a higher floor than that.

Theme for both games seems to be that the higher seeded teams are soft inside.

Michigan State is running an actual offense, though, so I think they'll pull this out.
