@King of Carrot Flowers the third Good job prefacing that. Could've been ugly.

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.

I just learned that someone on here has the handle "LurkingLurker." Well done, anonymous person.

@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.

@Old Man Game @[weed wolf faction] I think he could end up playing. Who knows? Presti clearly likes him.

@Old Man Game You don't have to if you can play the 4-5 and shoot at a good clip. The space those guys clear is enormous. Look at Channing Frye's RAPM. Nuts.

@Old Man Game Big guys who can shoot are super valuable, and he can shoot. Channing Frye was a terror last season and that's just about all he can do.


EDIT: Health is a concern though.

@Johnny Thunder What campaign is there to popularize soccer? I'm sure some want that, but the MLS is less visible/advertised than the WNBA, IMO. I don't think it's being pushed all that heavily

Will the Thunder at least let Huestis remove his shackles during games, or will they make him wear them as an attempt to further drive down the amount they have to pay him?
