Hey footey, I am in no way trying to be belligerent with you I value your opinion, and this is just what I think.

But an affidavit is literally a sworn statement before the criminal justice system, which actually holds weight in court. These statements are consistent with his misdemeanor in destruction of property / vandalism he was actually charged for the vandalism which came after he made these threats to that same girl whose property he vandalized.

affidavit is a declaration under oath that is true, but as you know very well oath testimony is not always true. Think about it for a minute, almost every court trial involves witnesses that testify under oath to different versions on the same subject. So take the affidavit for what it is worth, it is not a legal finding by a judge or jury.

So will character issues knock josh Jackson out of the top 3 picks or is he just too talented?

Question for those of you familiar with his game.  How much would Josh Jackson help our rebounding woes?  Is the too skinny to maintain position, or will his wiry strength and elite athleticism help him grab tons of rebounds?

Honestly there's just two guys we should be considering atm, Fultz and Tatum. Period.

Thon Maker, despite lacking muscles is helping the Bucks in boards and defense somehow. Jackson maybe shorter, but he's more complete and have the same intensity Maker have.

I think he has more intensity in all honesty.

From a physical standpoint, I think he's kind of like Harrison Barnes with a better motor, in that everyone was surprised when Barnes was guarding Zach Randolph in the playoffs a few years ago because he's so thin, but he's strong (wiry, like you said). I get that same impression watching Josh Jackson. Their offensive games are very different, but I do see physical similarities.

And Jackson was a better rebounder in college than Barnes was - 7.4 rpg compared to 5.8 and 5.2 in Barnes' 2 years at UNC.

Your daft Jackson is the best player.  Period.  Ainge ****s this up and we're done.  We don't need another dam pg or Tatum who is small and will be a project.  Jackson is nba ready!

Tatum is 6'8" with a 6'11 wingspan and has the most polished iso scoring game in the draft.

I am not sold on either.  I see a lot of Evan Turner in both.  Ball scares me too.

I am OK if we take Suomalainen Isomies Lauri Markkanen if we can't get Fultz.

and yet tatum and jackson are listed at the same height.

And Jackson is a 56% FT shooter.  I like the athleticism and general court movement/presence but he has a funky shot.  I do not see Jackson as any kind of a slam dunk.  He is as much of a crap shoot as nearly every other draft pick every year.  You could take Tatum, Jackson, Ball and a few others and pull their names out of a hat and have an equal chance of determining their future NBA career value as trying to draw conclusions from one year of college play.

Tatum is longer, has a bigger frame and weighs more than Jackson but he is small? how exactly is Tatum more of a project than Jackson?

The big problem with jackson is his terrible shooting, whether its from the field or free throw.

Do we really need another layup shooting athlete? We have brown, smart, and it with the same layup style. Can we please get some outside shooting to space the floor ?

I'm with the guy saying fultz or Tatum. its not even drafting for need, I see Both fultz and Tatum seem to have advanced shooting ability from anywhere, tatums 3 is a bit more unknown but his stroke looks nice. Tatum has great size and and all around game seems better than jackson

Hindsight is 20/20. But one thing is sure. Intagibles translate well in the league, especially with a guy with physical gifts and NBA ready game. This is like Smart and Exum all over again. Exum can shoot much better than Smart, but can't find his groove since turning pro so far. I don't mind taking Fultz or Tatum since they are my second choices but their mindsets reminds me of Wiggins and Exum.
