The suns were the worst team for a reason

Bender and Jackson are garbage. We dodged 2 bullets

Praying Sac drafts Doncic

This way we still have a chance at a high pick in 2019
Doncic is a winner. He will make that team better.

So was Saric

Doncic is the SG version of Saric

good but not franchise calibre. Defense is average on the nba court. watch
Doncic is significantly better than Saric. He's the best prospect to ever come out of Europe.

They also said that about Rubio

What happened?
Are you serious man? SG version of Saric?

He's arguably the best player in Europe right now and he's a teenager. That's the difference. The others were good European prospects. He's a 19 year old tearing up the second best league in the world.

And if you think his defence will be average you clearly haven't paid enough attention to him. He's 6'8" and nearly 230, and defends 1-4 in Europe. He'll be just fine defensively.

2nd best league on par with the G league?  ;D

He struggles driving past solid defenders.  He has trouble staying in front of quick players.  He can be passive(over passing) and I dont see much toughness

The nba is on a different level...we will see if he can stand out.
Literally none of those criticisms are true. What are you talking about?

You really seem to truly know european basketball  :o

Rubio was a wonder kid you played at the top level ..... Doncic dominates. He leads Real Madrid he doesn't just play for Real.


Suddenly being something like the starting pg for a top8 team in NBA is a bad thing.....

Triboy, the link below was against Spain, which included past and present NBA players like the Gasol bros, the Hernangomez bros, Rubio, Rodriguez, and JC Navarro. He had 11 pts, 12 reb, 8 ast, and zero turnovers. Oh, and he wad still 18 during that game.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=M7DTLInbLpY

Now this is against some other NBA guys such as Westbrook, Oladipo, and Larkin. He was 17 during that OKC game vs Westbrook and Oladipo.

Let me know if you still want to go with your Saric comparison?

Maybe the self-proclaimed king goes to the self-proclaimed Kings, that seems fitting and he has a house in Cali after all. The King of the kings (his new self-appreciating nick, in the manner that the great Persian rulers practiced eons ago, even more pompous than the last one), it's not good for our lottery hopes, I'll tell you that.
But I'd love to see Lebron in the purple, with the Indo-Serbian brain trust above him.

BTW, Croatia here.
Luka is a much bigger talent than Dario is.
The biggest similarity is that both of their fathers went pro basketball.

I know in other discussions some people were concerned that the Kings would be bad enough that they were likely to win the lottery next year.  I didn't think they'd be that bad but somewhere in the bottom 5.  Now, with them having the 2nd pick this year, I'm not so sure they end up bottom 5 next year.

They will either get Ayton or Doncic.  either one will make them better than a lot of the other bottom feeder teams this season.  We could see that pick slide to 8-10.  Still should get a decent prospect at that point but not as good a prospect as we had hoped.

hope I'm wrong, but if the Suns take Ayton as I suspect, Doncic seems to bring a lot of talent that the Kings really need and could turn them into a below-mediocre team from a bottom feeder.
Fox/Hield/Doncic/Jackson/WCS  decent young starting 5.  not world beaters but not complete stiffs either.
Bogdonovic, Skal, Koufos, Temple.  not a great bench but as a team, could win their fair share against bad teams.

  • When my account was born, Mark Blount was our C :(
To those that would trade Rozier this offseason:

Would you, in your most generous, final offer to consolidate assets: flip this pick (or preferably the Memphis pick), #27 and Rozier for the 6th pick this year, for the right to almost certainly take one of Bamba, Carter or Jackson Jr? Assume it’s Carter or Bamba.
Give us this pick, Almighty Red
And forgive us our tanking
As we forgive those who tanked against us
And lead us not into the lottery
But deliver us from losing

I'd probably do that for the certainty of it. But I also have followed this draft class way more than next year's so I'm probably undervaluing next year's talent.

I'd love Jaren Jackson Jr on this team.

I'm thinking the same sorta thing.

However, I do think that PHX will take Doncic. I feel as if their new coach would love the chance to work with a guy he knows, and Doncic/Booker is effectively unguardable.

That being said, Ayton did play at Arizona, so who knows

Doncic avg 15 pts , 5 ass, 5 reb last season

How is this "dominate"??

Nope. Can't wait for next May's lottery drawing (not the bogus show obviously though...)

Can't wait to "warch" the Kings!  :laugh:

I think that "warch" is an excellent word and am hereby declaring that it is the word to use from now on.

 "Warch:"
/wärCH,wôrCH/

Watch the Sacramento Kings during the 2018-19 season with morbid curiosity, in hopes that they will lose.

Use in a sentence: I stayed up late to warch last night. Got my wish, as Phoenix beat the Kings 120-87.

Maybe it's got something to do with playing 25mpg.

I really question your knowledge of Euro ball
