    Both are the wrong answer. Top 5 should be…

    1 Derozen
    2 Morant
    3 Giannis
    4 Jokic
    and then KD (or LeBron)

    Kevin Durant has had a great career and obviously is a great player but these injuries are starting to rack up a bit.

    Nah, it's Jokic. The other teams can win if that player misses a game. Jokic sits more than three minutes at a time = Denver down 15.

    Grizzlies gonna beat the Bulls handily. That team is legit. Wish we could have that much upside.

    Desmond Bane is the type of SG the Blazers need. and he was a 30th pick in the draft. Same draft that Portland gave up the 16th pick for RoCo

    Sorry? That’s because of the talent around him. If he had more talent around him, then they could win games without him. Just like the other guys. Bulls didn’t even make play-in til DeRozen got there. Now they’re first in East.

    Steve Adams picked up 6'10, 250 pound Tony Bradley and carried him across the court like he was nothing.

    Even worse than that, he was part of the trade that sent Kanter here. We sent Hezonjia to Memphis, to make sure we stayed under the tax while taking Kanter. We could have easily landed that pick with Kanter.

    Lol u can literally do this for almost every team in every draft

    Suns could’ve had Young, Doncic instead of Ayton in 2018. In that same draft I bet a number of teams are now wishing they took Simons who was drafted at like 25 or 26. Same with Trent Jr.
