Better pro career Olynyk or Kaminsky?

@d21 @okcjim Surely he'll get to pick his own staff.

As was the case with Kerr, I think who we bring in won't be as important as who he brings with him.   If he brings a good staff and can make common sense in game decisions (which it sounds like he does) then it will probably be an improvement.

@f5alcon @okcjim He won't have to recruit in the NBA.  I don't want a college coach honestly.  Just passing info along.  I was just looking to see what people who knew something about what he's actually done thought.

The Friday night game between Iowa State and UConn featured two NBA-ready coaches who are probably the two best I've seen in drawing up out-of-bounds plays, which separates good NBA coaches from great NBA coaches.

All year, UConn has benefitted from this.

The motivational phrases of Kevin Ollie get a lot of publicity, but it is his in-game coaching skill that has UConn in the Final Four.

@mattchant @okcjim Booker is a lot more mobile and athletic than Morrow but that's not saying much.  He'll be an average NBA defender most likely.  I've seen Afflalo as his upside with a few evaluations. 


Not saying I want either BTW.

A lot of Kris Dunn's and Devin Bookers in mocks for us right now.

@_justin @okcjim  He's more of a 4 than a 5.  Adams is much more of a physical presence at center than Olynyk would be.

So some of the Kentucky players get undervalued coming into the NBA because there is so much NBA talent on that roster?

If we sign Kanter for 4 more years I'm not sure we can afford to keep McGary as our future backup 4 unless he gets much better defensively.

Tramel just said Waiters has been so bad lately on free throws he would have been better off shooting step back jumpers. How awesome would it be if he did that?

@King of Carrot Flowers the KA KAW Like a bunch of people.  He's a much better shooter than Roberson right now and a much better defender than Morrow right now.  He's young too.  Still has a long ways to go but by the end of the year possibly/next year could be our starter and help.
