Not trying to poke a beehive, but it's awful quiet on this thread after Isaac fouled out in a loss vs. 12 seed Xavier (without their best player) with 8 points on 7 shots.  Is there anyone out there that still thinks we should draft this kid, a project IMO, over Fultz, Jackson, Ball and Tatum?

No. Maybe Smitty77

I am thinking Cliff Robinson as a comparison for Isaac.

Cliff Robinson was 6-10 220lbs. Size & athleticism. A terrific defender. Super versatile defensively. He could defend all 3 frontcourt positions and even some two guards. A solid scorer but more comfortable as a 3rd option than a #1 or #2 guy. He was a 20ppg for a few years but seemed happier as a 15-17ppg guy. A bit streaky to be the main scorer. Too big for SFs to handle. To skilled and quick for PFs. A good rebounding SF but below average rebounding PF.

Isaac looks to be a more natural rebounder than Uncle Cliffy. Other than that, I think they share many of the same characteristics.

Isaac is a better Ingram. This draft is rediculous.
Biasies:
Pro-Smart, Pro-Brown, Pro-Irving, Pro-Baynes

Anti-Nader, Anti-Yabu, Anti-Rozier, Anti-Morris

He is better at man D and weakside shot blocking but Ingram is much better offensively.

And Ingram's 40.2 FG % clearly PROVES that, as well as his stellar 29.4% from three!!!:-))))

Compare their freshman seasons, Ingram clearly was a better offensive player at the same age.

I will give you that Ingram is a better offensive player in college at the same age!!! 

However, Ingram is the third WORST DEFENDER at his position in the NBA!!!  I will GUARANTEE you that Isaac will NEVER EVER be in the bottom three at his position in defensive RPM!!!

http://www.espn.com/nba/statistics/rpm/_/page/2/sort/DRPM/position/5


And Ingram is ONLY the 46 rated offensive player at his position DESPITE getting more shots than about all rookies and likely having the most freedom to shot any and EVERY shot he wants to on a Laker TANK machine!!!!

That demonstrates how garbage that site is. Comparing Isaac to Durant is downright irresponsible.
Isaiah, you were lightning in a bottle.

That is why Lewis/Durant

Could only mean 20 percent Durant

He does have an intriguing mix of physical tools/skills

Asthma is still a bit of a concern...but if he can manage it...beckham, Bettis has asthma also...

He has a 0% of being Durant. Their games are not alike at all. It's a lazy comparison by a lazy "analyst" who simply looked at a picture of Isaac and saw a tall, lanky wing.

Nobody is saying durant 100 percent

But many 6'11 players can pull this off?
