Monk has below average height, wingspan, strength for a SG
You know, Jordan Crawford once went off at a college game.
Monk will be better but odds are stacked against him to perform the way he is now vs college players vs nba calibre player. Especially on the defensive end
Man, if he's better than a guy why even compare them? I feel like that's just a lazy way to disregard someone's talent. Monk's a pure scorer, whether CelticsBlog likes it or not. On a team that bolsters a 5'9" starting pg, 7 footer, with no wingspan and no big man game, the 3# pick with no touch or feel for the game, and the worst shooter in the nba who plays heavy minutes. Yeah, Boston has no right to all of a sudden become nitpicky about a player not being the perfect athlete.
If we get #2 we take Ball. If it's #3 again and Giles fell off the map, you take Monk.
Plenty i would take over monk at 2
Jackson, tatum, ball, fultz
I agree on Ball and Fultz
But Tatum is not a shooter. Let's be serious, his percentages don't scream future superstar, his midrange pull up everyone is getting so enamored with? Guess what? Monk's is better, it's quicker, he goes to it more, and it goes in unlike Tatum's. He's just a nice body like Jackson who's looking like another MKG. These guys would be terrible for our spacing and they'll just get in the way of Jaylen's development, which would not be fair to him.
Dude, what gives? Is there no faith for Jaylen Brown? Who we JUST drafted, Or Jae Crowder who's under contract til' 2020?
Marcus Smart is not where he suppose to be in his third year, Terry Rozier has been looking really shaky lately, IT is due for a big payday in a year and a half. Danny would be a moron to not take one of Fultz, Ball, Monk.
