They probably take the guy with the most potential in Towns. Then he proceeds to play half the year for the Wolves, put up remarkable earth shattering all-star numbers, and then decides at all-star break he's going to quit basketball and walk the earth.....

You are right. I'm pessimistic. I still take the safer pick with elite low post scoring. If you have an elite skill in the nba you will always contribute. Flip has made multiple comments about his love for oakafor.

Trade down with Philidelphia for Embiid and take Russell with the 76ers pick. Rubio wants out too so Russell would take over the PG spot nicely and they would also have Rubio as trade bait for another pick or player(s). Russell will end up the best player in this draft.

IMO it's the right decision. Think about Durant's draft - Durant was clearly the best player, but Oden played on the better team and everyone was drooling over a Ewing/Duncan potential. Same deal for Okafor, he played on a worse team than Towns but actually went and won the championship (though his team was still very good). Don't think too hard - he's the most polished college big man scorer since....Ewing? Even Duncan had question marks about his offense, even if they were very minor question marks.

Yea but The wolves have had to watch Pek and Love for the last few years don't you think it would be nice to have someone who could actually defend their position. I'm always skeptical of players who don't try their hardest on d because it's more of a character flaw than something you can teach. Players who don't want to play d don't want to win and that says a ton.

While I don't necessarily disagree, I don't think it applies to Okafor. Nobody develops his level of footwork and post play without putting in a lot of time. His D isn't all that bad anyway, it's just that Duke started a lot of young guys all season. Their D was great when it mattered.

Meanwhile Towns played PF next to the best defensive center in college (and a future Joakim Noah-type menace), an athletic 6'10 PF playing SF, two 6'6 guards in a zone defense. Nobody puts a lot of stock in the defensive play of Boeheim's players - don't know why we should act like a role player for UK's team last year was elite or anything. He's got good athleticism and instincts, but lacks ideal length and size to play C in the NBA.

Going to be a interesting coin flip between Towns and Okafor. So many x factors. Free throws are a big deal since hack-a-Shaq isn't going anywhere, so that plus potential versatility gives Towns the edge. Also you have to factor in who wants to go where. Will one of the guys come to Minny and purposely half it for his workout so he can go 2?

nastynice
05-20-2015, 06:55 AM
I don't follow college ball, but based on some youtube vids they look like they'll be completely diff players. I think Towns is def more physical talent, he has a nasty wingspan too almost guaranteed to be a good rebounder and rim protector. His baby hook is nice, or at least its in the arsenal so it gives him a move and won't be like dj, haha. Needs to polish it tho.

Okafer prob gonna be more like a good post player. I'm thinking kinda griffin but not as athletic. Don't think he would really dominate at any other aspect, but if he keeps working his post game potential looks real nice, and could be a pretty good all around player.

I'd personally go Towns, bigger upside, if his offense develops he has some pretty crazy looking potential. Seems to have more "homerun" potential, whereas Okafer will probably be solid starter and maybe potential very good, def not a bad prospect but just not the same as Towns

Also think Towns would fit with wiggins better, would be able to create more floor space for wiggins, also would be a much better finisher at the rim off of dishes. Wolves should def get Towns. If the lakers get Towns I'd consider that a steal. Could possibly build around him something legit. Dunno bout that la fo lately tho, lol, complete 180 past few years

Easy for Towns to rebound while Cauley Stein was next time him reeking havoc on shots. Its gotten pretty outrageous the criticism Okafor gets now like he is some piss poor defender with no room to improve, people must be tired of him living up to the hype and need something negative to find. Okafor steps into the league with a better offensive arsenal than the majority of NBA centers

Agree, both are pretty good, Okafor is a beast offensively and has an arsenal of post moves, he will improve defensively if well coached no doubt, while Towns has more upside looks more complete and way faster and athletic, it doesn't mean either one sucks if people prefer one or another.

That's just the Lakers effect, Okafor is likely going to LA, so people hate him now and bash him now like they did with dwight.

Seriously? You are an unbelievable homer. People have been speaking on Okafor's defense and his other flaws from the very beginning. Most draft analysts comment his subpar defense needs to improve dramatically and that he doesn't run the floor well. Now all of a sudden he is hated and criticized because he is "likely" going to LA? Pathetic. You and no one else has no idea where he is going. There's still another month before the draft and anything can happen. Don't pretend to have a crystal ball. This has nothing to do with where he's purportedly "likely" going, LA or not. There are very real concerns about his game. So get over yourself.

I would say Okafor is more polished at the moment. But I think Embiid's has the footwork to be just as good in the post (he's still fairly new to basketball, so he needs to work on his touch) plus he should be a vastly superior defender and will likely have more range on his jumper.


Towns might be the pick, but at #1 it should have nothing to do with being the right fit. If he is drafted #1, Flip better believe he is the best player, not necessarily the best fit.

I think to an extent you look at fit. I agree it shouldn't be based upon fit with Pek, but I think the rest of the young core should be considered. I can see an argument for both based upon fit for Wiggins. I'm still not sold Wiggins will be a great creator, but he's definitely a guy who can get up and down the floor and will probably be a very good jump shooter. I can see the "fit" argument with Towns because he can play faster with Wiggins and Lavine, who're likely open court players. But I could see a "fit" argument that maybe neither Lavine or Wiggins are elite half court players, so adding an Okafor still allows you to run with the guards and wings, but it gives you a guy who can work the half court offense while potentially drawing double teams for Wiggins and Lavine, who're both good spot up shooters. I'm in the first group, especially since I prefer Towns defense, but could see an argument for the second group and Okafor.


then what when the Sixers keep Okafor or trade him elsewehre for say winslow+

I don't love Mudiay, but given the style of player that the Sixers have been drafting lately, I wouldn't at all be surprised if they like Mudiay. You guys really seem to be shooting for the stars and shooting for upside, and Mudaiy has as much, if not more, upside than anyone in the draft. Its possible they covet Russell, but taking Russell with the intention of forcing the Sixers' hands into trading you whoever is left of the bigs is very risky, especially for a young team like Minn who could really benefit from adding either of the young bigs. If it blows up in their faces, they could end up looking really dumb. So I agree, I think it would be unwise for Minn to take Russell (unless they really want him) in hopes of getting overwhelmed in a trade latter in the draft.

This is a really tough decision. I'm swinging on it daily. Towns fits the new age game. Oakafor fits the half court old game. Oakafor seems like the safer pick but he only shows effort if it leads to him scoring. Offensive boards he's elite. Defensive boards he's pedestrian. That mindset scares me.

I think Minny should take Townes and then attempt to trade Rubio, Dieng and Pek to Portland for Lillard once they lose Aldridge. The second Aldridge leaves, the Damian Lillard is an unrestricted FA talk will begin and along with it major trade speculation. If they unload Peks contract, they should take a stab at Kevin Love in free agency, he's the perfect stretch four for the new Wolves, haha.

Lillard
Martin/Lavine
Wiggins
Kevin Love
Townes.

kevin love thing won't happen but its funny how good of a fit he is now. plus Portland owes a 2016 first round pick to Denver (top 14 protected). I think a core of Rubio, Pek, Dieng, Leonard and Batum is bad enough to land in the lottery and thus keep the pick. Portland can reload through the draft, and opposed to losing Lillard for nothing if he walks, they at least turn him into Rubio and Dieng as assets. assets that they can trade later, or develop as the new core along with their future rookies.

They should go with Townes. Wolves are no where near competing so they don't need the more NBA ready player in Okafor.

If I'm Minny, I draft Towns. Way more upside. Can't go wrong with either though. I just think Towns is a better fit. If the Lakers were drafting number 1, I would say the same thing. I actually wanted Towns even before the NCAA season started.

[QUOTE=crewfan13;29973581]I would say Okafor is more polished at the moment. But I think Embiid's has the footwork to be just as good in the post (he's still fairly new to basketball, so he needs to work on his touch) plus he should be a vastly superior defender and will likely have more range on his jumper.

Yea that's true I was watching YouTube on Embiid and I was in shock that 7 foot monster had a jumper he's potential is sky's the limit

The majority of people seem to think towns is the pick. Two way players in wiggins and towns sounds scary. The defense of Rubio, dieng, towns, and wiggins sounds amazing.

I hope they take the BPA, and if it's Russel, than they take him. All things said, Flip has done nicely drafting the last two years, so I'll leave it up to him to make the right decision.

I think between Ok and Towns, Towns makes way more sense as a screen/roll-pop specialist who can run the floor with Wiggins, LaVine and Rubio opposed to Okafor who wants to play half court and eat up the paint.

On top of that defense is our biggest issue and he is better on that end too. I am all for taking bpa but to me these two are very close prospects and towns fits better and has more of a modern big skill set (rim protector who can play pick and roll both ends, has nice range).

I'd rather have those skills, that fits our team, and IMO the guy with more potential. They are both great prospects so I won't be mad with either but that's just how I see it.

Agree. Towns should become a bigger Horford with more hops and rim protection.
