Nah, I'll save it for another day.
I'm just gonna say it'd be as bad as drafting that Motejsfgkjalkgfjadskfjaunas guy...
btw, this is what Riley had to say after the draft:
"We want someone who can come in and help you right away, but we understand that the #6 pick is probably a development process"
I smell trouble...

Well technically if we had lost that coin flip we'd be sitting pretty at #1... Food for thought

which is exactly why we wont get a game changing big man in return for that package.
nah Ellis, #6, and a bench player for Al Jeff is feasible. especially if Cousins falls to them.
but I dont consider Al Jefferson a game changing big. He USED to be.... but he is NOT the same player he used to be. Poor defender now and plays mostly below the rim now. I dont think age is going to be kind to him.
You definately have a negative outlook with trading the pick and with AJeff's ability now. Could be right, but I'm far more opportunistic and think the team can definately get one of the very good bigs we've spoken about the last month or two. I think Memphis might do MGasol and Mayo for 6th/Cousins and Monta, though again, I'd rather give AB. MGasol and filler for AB and 6th pick also is good I think.
I don't see keeping the pick feasible, it won't be a player that plays much or makes any sort of difference
I don't get it. Are you saying Cole Aldrich is evil like our president?
Seriously though, I haven't really seen him play, just going by stats. Aldrich is showing up pretty high in various mock drafts. The dude had a triple double in the NCAA Tournament with 13 points 20 rebounds and 10 blocks.
And of all the big men in the draft he has to be the best shot blocker. He averaged 3.5 blocks a game
I'm not trying to argue that he would be a good pick or not. I'm just seeing his stats and asking why you think he would be a bad pick.
If it's because he isn't a big time low post scorer... so what? We need a low post defender, rebounder and shot blocker more than we need a scorer.
