    Simmons is awful so thatd be an L for him too. But that one is purely my opinion.

    Simmons with the right coach is this generations Dennis Rodman...the kid can guard anybody in the league and he's 24...runner up for defensive player of the year....Rodman didn't like to shoot either much...more buckets for Nurk

    I feel pretty good about this year's projects. You can't teach athletic.

    Still an L. I dont wanna play 4 on 5 on offense, we already had an awful coach hamstring us. Let's not revert by getting Simmons.

    He's a very good passer with a good handle and finishes well around the rim. It would not be playing only four guys on offense, even if he's not a good perimeter shooter.

    And if he gains a jumpshot, he's Scottie Pippen 2.0 only this time he's 6'11".

    It stings that our pick was used for Usman. I think he's going to be an early contributor. Would've loved to buy low on Rubio to run our second unit, sign Ibaka with MLE to b/u Nurk, and round out the Spanish armada with him.

    So basically what this draft and draft night told us is that Dame will be leaving.

    Lol Nurk struggle finishing around the rim, and now he basically will have two guys on him everytime. Trading for Simmons create more issues than actually solving issues

    Calling bullshit on this. There is more than a few days. The team has until the trade deadline to make changes. You see moves all the time around the beginning of training camp.
