I'm not going to deny the skillset and the potential, but I think I'm one of the few, if not, the only one who thinks we SHOULD NOT target Michael Porter, Jr., and instead try to get either Mohamed Bamba, DeAndre Ayton, or both.

We have Gordon Hayward and Jayson Tatum. One is offensively capable, the other one is offensively gifted. I just see how he will fit with those two, elite skills and all.

Ayton and Bamba, on the other hand, fills a need. Horford isn't getting any younger, and both these kids could be the future of the Center position. Long, athletic, skilled, showing some semblance of a jumper that can be improved. It's something we really need, and they have the talent and the potential to be special.

My dream is to be able to draft both 7 footers, and we can roll a lineup of Hayward - Tatum - Bamba - Ayton moving forward. . .

interesting perspective. I'm not one to draft for need but I understand the concerns around horford and the need for a prospect behind him or potential  frontcourt partner

I would say Kevin Durant is both taller and longer than Porter. Probably more athletic when he was younger. He was also a better prospect.

Kevin Durant is 1 of 1.
kevin Durant couldn't bench press 1 rep of 180 lbs at the draft combine, so not sure what athleticism you're referring to. I don't think anyone's arguing whether durants inch taller makes a big difference. The point is many scouts see Durant in porter. Its hard not to. We would be very lucky to have him

Clearly Durant wouldn't have made a good Offensive tackle.

That's the worst critique of a basketball player's athleticism I've ever seen.

Hayward and Tatum are 3s. Porter and Bagley are 4s. Zizic is prob the C of the future..

I thinkn Hayward can slot in at the SG just fine.

And while I do understand that neither Bamba nor Ayton are listed as PF's, their quickness for their size, and their potential to be able to make shots from distance makes it fine to slot either of them to either big spots.

You practically re-create the Twin Towers with those two if you get them both, with Hayward and with Tatum, and they could impact the game without being a heavy usage player. Bagley, as talented as he is, might need more touches, and with Tatum and Hayward's game predicated on touches, he might not be a good fit.

If you just get one of them, you still get an excellent prospect that could be a piece that fits moving forward.

 He plays against Steph Curry, Fultz, Dennis Smith Jr, nobody can stop him, slow him down, nothing. He's Jayson Tatum, but bigger, stronger and taller.

I think that's the video you wanted. Yours is Curry smoking kids at some shooting drill.
My 2017 Draft Rankings:       My 2017 FA Celtic Rankings:
1.) Markelle Fultz                   1.) Gordon Hayward
2.) Jayson Tatum                   2.) Blake Griffin
3.) Lonzo Ball                           3.) No other realistic options
4.) Josh Jackson                          move the needle much
5.) Lauri Markkanen

True. But still, this is the most impressive clip I've seen of him yet. His fine motor skills and size as a wing or CBS PF look unicorn-like. He could be the highest upside #2 pick since KD, with similar skills.

doesnt matter to me. if he's able to use quickness against these point guards, he'll roast the 3s and 4s in the NBA.

I mean, it's a highlight reel. Of course he doesn't miss.

He looks like RJ Hunter and Lonzo Ball had a kid.

After 18 months with their Bigs, the Littles were: 46% less likely to use illegal drugs, 27% less likely to use alcohol, 52% less likely to skip school, 37% less likely to skip a class
