    Yah well all I know is he like to have the ball in his hands when the game is on the line and he has delivered. PLus he plays above the rim, and after watching last nights game versus the Bulls I realized we don't have a single person that can do what Jimmy Butler or Taj Gibson did last night and that's throw it down and get the crowd excited.

    If you look at one of my earliest posts about him I said the same thing, he's raw and needs to work on his shooting but given the kids work ethic I have no reason to believe he won't be able to urn himself into at least a shooter worth guarding.

    From what I've noticed, he sort of seems very similar to Alec Burks. He's clearly the best player on a not elite team. He is explosive but far from polished. I don't hate him, but I don't love him at this point yet either. I'd have to watch him more to really be able to tell.

    Still at our position in the draft with what we need, I think he would be a smart pick.

    I still haven't watched a hole ton of Franklin either, so you're probably right with that. The only thing that worries me about guys like that is it seems like every year there's a couple guys that come into the league like that. They are the explosive athletes that score fairly well in college, usually because they are just better athletically than the competition, and don't have much of a polished game. And a lot of those guys don't really turn into much. I look at guys like someone like a Demar Derozan, who always feels like a guy who's ready to take the next step, but never really does. I'm worried Burks is that same type of player who isn't getting a ton of minutes, although its very early in his career.

    I've always had a soft spot when watching guys like the Marshon Brooks of the world, who maybe aren't great athletes, but at least are adequate athletes that are crafty and just know how to score the basketball. I think guys like Paul Peirce and Manu Ginobili are great examples of this too. Guys who just know how to score it. Obviously, those are extreme cases, but I like those guys. I'm not sure there's one sitting around where we'll be picking.

    Another guyI really want but I now feel is playing his way out of our reach is Victor Oladipo. Right now on NBAdraft.net they have him going at the 32nd pick but I don't think there is a chance he goes outside the lottery if he keeps playing the way he has been.

    Seth Curry is listed at 6'2" 185 so there is no way he will be a solution for us at the 2 spot on a night to night basis.

    Seth Curry is not a pro player in my mind. He's a shooter and that's it. He's not as athletic as Steph is and he'll be lucky to even just hang around on the bench in the pros in my mind.

    I don't mind it, however I don't see him being the banger next to Sanders like he needs. Also, I kind of think Sanders is more of a center then a forward.

    However I cannot see Victor Oladipo falling to the second round nor do I see Franklin.

    If one of those two are on the board when we pick, one of those two needs to be the pick.

    Wickett asks Chuck on 1250 WSSP radio what would you rather have.... Jennings on a max deal or if Trey Burke is there when we pick in the draft? Chuck said Trey Burke. Its around the 12:00 mark.

    You see it's comments like this that I can't take these guys seriously. Trey Burke? Are you ****ing drunk Check?!

    Jesus... And Burke is barely 6 foot so if you think Jennings has trouble your in for a world of hurt, not to mention Burke is not nearly as quick as Jennings, IDK how he is going to compete with some of the star PG's in the game.

    Oladipo seems like a solid prospect.
