@dweebo #Adamsfaction Playoffs aside, Collison is definitely better than Adams right now. Jones is too low as well.

@Russ is better than KD No. Durant's way better offensively.

@AronZoltanLaszik They'll experiment playing them together, but ultimately I think they almost definitely end up trading one.

@okcjim That's like claiming Harden is a bad offensive player because his FG% is low. Ignoring too many other factors.

@okcjim They also never fouled. That matters. DRTG is the best way to look at team defense. They were okay per possession. Top-10 with Love on the floor, I believe.

How on earth did the Warriors have a league-average offense last year? Crazy with all their talent.

@TempBoy Brandon Warriors are a legitimate contender if Bogut stays healthy. Especially if they end up landing Love/Kerr improves the offense.

@ChileToreado @ Luke @Perk-Punt @King of Carrot Flowers the third Maybe. But if so, it was way too easy to misconstrue his point. Just not the time to talk about it, IMO. Sounded like a "Well, don't do something that makes him want to hit you," defense, even if it wasn't.

@Perk-Punt @ Luke @King of Carrot Flowers the third He's a professional football player. He beat his girlfriend into unconsciousness. It may have been aggravated, but there's no defending that. Period.

Over/under 100 real rotation minutes for Bill McGury this year. Not garbage time.

@mattchant @MatheusCoxa @ Luke The T-Wolves got killed when Love was on the bench and Tim plays less than 30 minutes a game. They would have been worse with him.

@mattchant @Russ being Russ @MatheusCoxa @ Luke That's silly. They had a top-10 defense when he was on the floor. He's not a very good defender, but they weren't getting smashed when he was out there. The reason the T-Wolves lost so much was (to some extent) bad luck in close games and a dreadful bench. They killed teams with Love on the floor.

The more I defend Huestis, the more I irrationally believe in him. If I'm like his JoBlogg's in two years, my bad guys. You're seeing the origin story.

@Old Man Game @ Luke Yeah. Most college upperclassmen have to be. But Huestis is an oddball case because he played the 4 at Stanford. Totally different skillset. He'll literally just have to learn to shoot from the corners to be functional offensively. Easier said than done, but still. Tough to totally write him on that end now.

@Old Man Game @ Luke I think the ideal would be someone like Danny Green. Lockdown defender in college who was selected late because he was so old. He could shoot though, so not a perfect comparison.

Y@LurkingLurker @ Luke Yeah, I've heard good things about that. And I think I'll inevitably end up buying Season 2 anyways just because I'm enjoying the first one so much.

@Old Man Game @ Luke Yeah. He's not a high-potential pick. Way too old. But for a team like this, I see no problem with it. Think he'll be a solid defender early. Maybe with the chance to develop a shot.

@Old Man Game @ Luke I think so. Probably would have preferred to trade down, but sounds like it wasn't possible. If there was anyone he really liked at 29, we take them period, IMO. 


EDIT: Keep in mind, Kyle Anderson was the guy I wanted at 21. I was pissed when we passed for Huestis.

I look at the Huestis selection like this. 

A) He fits well into our overall team dynamic (super athlete, high-character guy)

B) Presti either likes him or liked no one else in the draft to the point that he valued flexibility and taking a flier on Huestis over taking anyone else at 29. And that's fine by me.

Anyone played Telltale's Walking Dead game? Just blew through Chapter One and it's incredible. Storytelling is unreal for a video game.

@Old Man Game @ Luke @[weed wolf faction] Yeah. The odds are never in favor of any late first. But I dunno, if he can up his shooting, he could be a respectable role player. Big if, but you never know. Not a bad gamble, anyways.
