    Bilas and Billups both agreed Cavs had the best first round of the draft.

    I have a few different thoughts on the Cavs draft.

    1. We took a 6'0.5" tall PG. No way around this, he's small. Doesn't mean he can't be great, but he's already behind the 8 ball. Hard to defend when you're small.
    2. We drafted Sexton, a small | nonathletic | bad shooting | TERRIBLE defensive player - PG last yr at #8. If Koby is already thinking about moving on I commend him for not picking a worse player to save face, but fuck me.
    3. Media is trying to spin this as CJ/Dame in Portland. Both players are 6'4". Huge difference IMO.
    4. I like that the kid has great ball handling skills and can shoot
    5. Every player we took can shoot the rock. I like that.
    6. We didn't trade our biggest piece in JR Smith's contract. That is a big blunder IMO.
    7. I still think Koby Atlman is a trash.
    8. Cavs will not be a competitive team next season, and that's ok.

    Garland is like 6’3. It’s a small backcourt when you combined him with 6’2 Sexton, but Garland is not a small PG. and Sexton showed last year he needs to be an off-guard. I love the Garland pick to pair with Sexton. Sexton showed he can score in this league, so automatically he needs to be given a chance even if his defense was bad last year.

    His official measurement without shoes is 6'0.5"
    6'5" wingspan tho.

     

    As for Sexton, scoring in this league sure. Scoring efficiently? He hasn't proven that yet. He also only picked up his scoring towards the end of the season when most teams are coasting. I'm still a huge skeptic of him obviously. I think he sucks.

    Anybody who thinks the Cavs had a better first round than the Pelicans might be borderline retarded.

    Counter point: He plays basketball with his shoes.

    I was zero surprised to see Bol drop as much as he did and will never understand why he was ranked so high. These BAF guys are so easily injury prone. Hell he already is.

    Thought about making a separate thread with a poll, but I'm still waiting on like_that's promised thread ideas from Srs Biz.

    If you're the celtics, knowing what you know now, would you still trade for Kyrie Irving? IMO it's been a lose lose for both teams.

    A lot of people on Twitter defending Lavar Ball for getting banned from ESPN for his comments to Molly Qerim, saying his comments weren't meant to be sexual. How about this: Who cares if they were or weren't. He should be banned because he's a fucking idiot who has never said anything intelligent or reasonable about basketball.

    lol, exactly.  It took a mild controversy for ESPN to do what they should have done about 18 months ago.  That's the real story.

    Not even surprised, they cater to the lowest common denominator.

    NBA landscape could change dramatically today. Sounds like Kemba to Celtics, Kyrie to Nets, Klay staying with Warriors are all for certain. I really hope Kawhi doesn’t go to the Lakers.

    Once KD went to the Warriors, super teams took on a whole new level. If Kawhi goes Lakers, it’ll still be a 5 steps below KD to warriors in bitchass moves.

    Agreed. I'd be disappointed if he did, but not angry. The annoying thing is a lot of people will be angry and that will make Twitter unbearable to read. 

    What the hell is Charlotte thinking? You didn't offer Kemba the supermax nor try and trade him for a haul at the deadline, and you've missed the playoffs the past three seasons. Now you're left with one of the worst rosters in the league.

    Damn....Nets to sign KD, Kyrie & DeAndre Jordan
