Also your dead on with your Okogie point and I would go even further, as Cov is also clearly limited offensively so a secondary scorer like White is exactly what we NEED.
    Here's hoping man. I totally agree with you with White also being my favorite option outside of Zion/Morent/RJ - I've got a feeling he might climb his way up the board though, I think he could go top 5.

    For sure - with Okogie and Cov, if both are going to start, we really need some shooting/scoring to compliment them. I don't want jump to any conclusions too early, especially since we normally get reemed with the draft lottery and such, but if we did get a chance to draft White and he's able to contribute right away, it does make our roster look more 'complete', for want of a better word.

    Absolutely - having different styles of players at the PG spot is a great weapon (the obvious example of Curry/Livingston), and if you can play them together, even better. I think Tyus can play with almost anyone - while he's get his limitations, I think he understands that. I respect him for that.

    he could be our Howard Eisley

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    I love how we all figure Wiggins as a non-factor. Pencil his worthless *** in for 33 mpg for 3 more years

    Those 33 minutes per will really hold us back considering he is way below average offensively and defensively.

    A part of me, say 5-10% still hopes it clicks for Wiggins. I am clearly this threads optimist.


    PSD Grammar Lesson #1:

    a) their - stands for "belonging to them"
    b) there - means "over there" as in location
    c) they're - short for "they are"

    we all overrated Okogie badly, simply because he plays with the energy we wish Wiggins played with.

    100% agree. The comparison that I see is Corey Brewer.

    They both strongly believe in 1 on 3 fast breaks that's for sure.

    I have thought about this comparison in the past too. A thing that I see different in them (compared to Brewer's first stint in MN). Okogie has slightly better bball IQ. You can see it in their D as well. Brewer was never short of effort but most of the times his D was stupid. Okogie has more signs of becoming a good defender.

    I'm not sure about that on the offensive end, but I definitely see your point on Defense. Brewer was much more of a gambler and Okogie seems more sound defensively.

    totally agree, I think Dw3241 and I mean more stylistic, and impact wise. I don't know if Okogie has the skill ability to be a good starter offensively, but he can absolutely find a long career as an excellent 3-D wing. He is also WAY stronger than Brewer ever was, which helps him. You could always physically overwhelm Brewer, you can't do that to Okogie. Hoping he can turn into a taller Marcus Smart kind of player to be honest..
