Imagine three years from now seeing Scoot/Miller/whoever becoming a superstar on another team. While we're stuck with regret adding another name to the list of legends we passed on drafting. And for what? Say we trade the pick for a low end all-star then what? We have a three year window of mid-seed playoff appearances and our shitty defense doing us in every time. And with Dame on the floor the defense will be shitty. It starts with your best player, if he can't defend the rest will follow. I love Dame, but building around a scoring point guard that can't defend doesn't work. How many volume scoring PG's win championships? Steph is the only one and that's because he's played with 2/3 likely hall of famers his whole career, and he's a decent defender, and his teams have been good defensively, with a ton of great role players. The Blazers have none of that and they wont in the next few years. The Blazers will not be contenders in Dame's prime. We aren't getting Giannis or any top ten player for this pick so why bother? The only path to a championship is the old fashioned way. Building a team through the draft. Wasting a top 3 pick for nothing will bite us in the ass.
