    the NBA doesn't give Two F*CKS about New Orleans enough to saddle that tiny market with the most marketable star in years.

    I did have a feeling we would get totally screwed.

    Pelicans probably KEEP Anthony Davis so Lebron gets Davis-Blocked! New Orleans loses no matter what they do! NY AND LA didn't get Zion!

    Let me guess we dropped the most slots of any team

    Barrett ain’t going 2. It’s Zion and Ja Morant then everybody else. Ja is the perfect replacement for Conley

    I didn't miss anything, but thanks for insinuating I'm too blind to see what happened. Yes... the Lakers moved up to #4 in a 2, maybe 3 player draft for guys who can make an impact right now. Which means it's not a great chip to try and get a legit star in a trade for Lebron AND if they keep the pick, it's not a player that can immediately help them win a title. Is it better than 11? Yes, but it doesn't help them all that much in the present.

    And the Knicks get BONED out of the top spot AND the top two picks go to absolute HORRENDOUS basketball cities and small markets.

    Yes... the NBA is really worried about Memphis... over NY and the Lakers?

    Are you guys serious with this tin-foil hat crap?

    This is the typical Suns draft. We usually draft worse than where we ended up.

    That **** is far from set in stone. Just look at last years draft. A lot of people had Luka as the #1 or #2 prospect and yet he fell to 3 and was technically passed up by 3 teams with the trade.

    I think Memphis takes him. That gives them their inside/out combo with Morant/JJJ.

    No. Please no. If we're going to draft a point guard project, let's just stay at 6 and take White or Garland.

    yup. If Davis still wants out, he's a moron and just looks like an even bigger bitch than he already is.
