    for the college guys in the know, who would you target with our pick? I prefer prospect that has the modern day C potential, rebs/defends and an outside shot here and there. I know we got Moe on deck but we'll need another for sure as Mcgee/Chandler aren't going to be long term solutions (I doubt we can afford to reup Mcgee if he demands a boat load of $)

    TRADE ANYBODY FOR ZION.

    I'd really like a front court player that's actually dedicated to defense though. We have the offense, but we need a leader on defense.

    I dont think we got any chance at Zion and even so, I dont see the fit, to me he's an uber athletic Randle, I dont see the perimeter game from him

    Have you seen him play? His first bucket was literally a three pointer. He's not just limited to dunks and power game. The kid is ridiculous controlled for his size.

    He's far superior to Randle in pretty much every facet, it's not even close.

    well not saying he's not better than randle but again we got no shot at him unless something terribly goes wrong this season.

    Zion could be a Randle stopper.

    Zion is the 1st pick by a wide margin, we have no chance at Zion.

    I think he's more Larry Johnson than Julius Randle. Zion has drawn (not unfair) comparisons to Barkeley.

    I would think Gafford is our target in the mid-1st if we stay there (I don't know that we will). He's massive, athletic, and mobile. I liked him a ton in the last draft, but he waited (smartly) for this one.

    He's amazing but he might not even be the best PRO prospect on his team. That RJ Barrett fella, impressive.

    Zion was built out of a lab or something. He's going to clown so many college players. When only 1 player in the NBA is heavier than Zion, that's Boban, how do you think he's going to fair against college kids, especially with that freakish athleticism. Haha

    David Stern would come out of retirement to stop us from getting Zion if someone actually made that deal. lol

    RJ reminds me of TMac, with a little bit less athleticism. Just a really solid all around scorer and frame.

    The way Zion is able to fly around at his weight is just gravity defying. It’s almost young Shaq like, though Zion isn’t as tall, but definitely more skilled.
