    Almost reminds me of Khawi type defense. I’d take him with our Warriors pick

    My gut says I think someone will snag Dunn before our GSW pick; I mean heck, OKC have back to back lottery picks this year.

    I watched two full games (not many, I know) of Sarr and have come to the conclusion that he should be the pick if we land the #1 slot:

    7’1” Bam Adebayo

    I love Ryan Dunn but this graphic is nuts.

    can teams draft players who aren’t even projectable 3pt shooters anymore?

    At bare minimum he changes your defense.

    If they like him they can move up. We have 2 second rounders. Unlikely that we use all our picks.

    I am curious, and I know a lot of you are much more in-depth at studying college prospects and draft expectations. I am curious, if Bronny James didn't have a famous dad, would he be in consideration for a first round pick this year? Has he looked good as a prospect? I have not watched any games, so just curious.

    The 73-win Warriors would be 21st offensively this year? That says a lot about where the state of the NBA is. Let's have every game be like the All-Star game!!

    I think the backlash to the ASG is more about the recognition of where the game is at than the ASG itself.

    Look no further than Adam Silver's seething reaction.

    I have this hunch that the Colorado guys; Cronin and Billups really want Cody Williams

    I really want Cody Williams to be our guy. Reminds me so much of Kwahi Leonard when he was at SDSU

    He plays nothing like Kawhi though...

    He lived off tough off dribble 2's and Cody barely takes any...

    I like him fine though

    Khawi was a deer learning to walk at SDSU. I think Williams is further along as freshman offensively though.

    Williams has the tools to be an elite defender.
