 Big shout out to Footney for further proving what I already knew. That can Lonzo Ball is a future superstar. Chad Ford polled GM's to find out who is a tier 1 player in this draft.

 Guess what? The NBA GM's agree with me.

  Tier 1 (Potential superstars)

Lonzo Ball, PG, UCLA
Markelle Fultz, PG, Washington

Only eight players have been ranked in this slot since we started doing this in 2009: Blake Griffin, John Wall, Anthony Davis, Andrew Wiggins, Joel Embiid, Jabari Parker, Karl-Anthony Towns and Ben Simmons.

That's pretty elite company.

 One of the top Ten players in the last eight years. Yes. The kid is going to be a Superstar.

He doesn't play any defense and can't get to the rim...

I like Lonzo, but I think he's better as a 2nd option than as the guy who initiates the offense.

He plays defense. He's the coolest basketball player I have ever seen. Nothing bothers this kid. It's impressive.

 In what universe does a player with J Kidd ability and Steph Curry range and shooting % not succeed..

what????

people disagree with you, not because Ball isnt a good, but because you make him out to be some diety with Steph Currys shooting ability and Jason Kidds "ability".

Steph Curry is the greatest shooter of all time and Jason Kidd is a 10 time all star who led the league in assists 5 times and made 9 all defense teams, and 6 all-nba teams.

Dont tell me the guy who isnt even the best prospect in his class has the "ability" of one of the best defensive and playmaking and rebounding gaurds of all time along with the shooting of the best shooter of all time.

If hes that good than whats Fultz?

Looked pretty bad over the last part of the Arizona game today. He struggled to be effective against an aggressive, athletic Arizona defense.

If we take Ball within the top 2 picks I will be very p---ed. The guy is a bust waiting to happen. Bar none Fultz is the best player in the draft and it shouldn't be a question of who we draft at 1 if we get the pick.

If we get 2 we take either Tatum or trade it

Didn't see game but his stats were impressive. You saying he played bad towards end?

Most GMs disagree with your assessment. Think I have more faith in their view.

He didn't impress me at the end. I tuned in, saw his stats, and thought, "Man, he must be going off. This should be good."

But he didn't do anything of note over the last 10 minutes of the game. He had a few turnovers and generally looked like the Arizona defense had him out of rhythm.

 Overall he was pretty awesome again. Set a career high in points. Shot it well. Made plays all game long.

 They coach for Arizona is top notch. UCLA is showing their weaknesses against top team's. TJ leaf played bad and they need him.

He gets eaten alive by anybody with a hint to explosion as a defender. He's long an athletic so he generates turnovers at the college level, but he got absolutely torched vs Fox in the UK game.
