His shot is smoother than I recall.
The workouts are one thing but that body against men is another.
I’m not a fan of his build being able to negotiate a skill level in the league.

I Ike the idea of Drafting RJ and signing Russell from nets. Good youthful injection. Redshirt Durant.
Another year to move the talent. AD is a nice thought but at what price.
Bol in the second round for me. If he is gone, He is gone.

Yes to RJ, Russell and getting another first rounder.

No to KD this offseason. Maybe next one after he picks his option with GS. and recovers.

Interesting, we've worked out/ are going to work out Garland:

So of the teams Garland has/will worked out for: Cavs, Knicks, Lakers, Bulls, Lakers no longer an option (maybe Pels bite- he'd be a good fit next to Holiday)

Nixluva is posting triangle screen grabs, even when nobody asks - Fishmike. LOL So are we going to reference that thread like the bible now? "The thread of Wroten Page 14 post 9" - EnySpree

If Kawhi said he was leaving Toronto and they decided to blow it all up and rebuild, and you got a phonecall on draft night offering Pascal Siakam for RJ Barrett, would you say yes or no?

No way. Who doesn't like Siakam but he may have benefitted tremendously from being surrounded by a team where everyone on the court could score efficiently

Martin: Hezonja will be in the NBA next year. Martin was right; I was wrong. :-(

They have traded away their 2020 and 2022 1st rounders, so they have nothing they can offer other than this years 30th pick, so no thanks! Rather do a deal with OKC who at least have one year deals to shift (unlike the Bucks multi year players)

I am far from a draft guru and I've only seen two games of his but I would probably still take RJ and hope he continues to develop (he's still just a kid) and hope to hell that Garland doesn't turn into the second coming of Damian Lillard

this is interesting. If he shoots lights out, would you trade #3 to NOLA for #4 and some pick (akin to Luka and Trae)?

Here's hoping he has a Donovan Mitchell style impact on us next season. If you look at D Mitchell's first year college stats (and even second), RJ is much further along.

When we draft RJ can we all agree Not to use the 'Maple Mamba' nickname? It's awful!

If we are picking guys according to their shooting technique, Curry amd many others would have never been picked. There are just too many schools out there, on shooting, right now. There seems to be no right way anymore.
