Lol no - I don't like you that much. It's simple - out of the top 6 teams I'd like kings and jazz to do well in the lottery. Bucks and Sixers are lame and don't know how to develop talent and I can't stand Celtics and Lakers.

Plus, I'd like Kings to be decent so it's worth making a stop in Sacramento when I'm driving down to Bay.

Trade Kevin Love to whoever gets the first pick, Draft my Boy Wiggins CHAMPIONSHIPS
1st Day of the combine today, where they do measurements. A couple of notables...

-Noah Vonleh had astounding measurements. 7'.4.75" wingspan & hand length of 11.75". To put that in perspective, his hands are bigger than Kawhi Leonard's.

-Marcus Smart's wingspan is 6'9.5", also very good, especially when combined with his physicality. He has a bigger wingspan than Dante Exum. (6'9.25")

-Julius Randle's wingspan was 7'0", and his standing reach was 8'9.5". Not quite as bad as expected.
Kyle Anderson w/a 7'3" wingspan, which is pretty incredible for a SF with PG skills.
LA, you have probably covered this and I missed it. What are your thoughts on Exum? Have you seen any tape of him? You think he is a can't miss type prospect at PG?

Ya, I've actually seen a couple of full games of his, and DraftExpress has a nice strengths/weaknesses videos of his as well.

I like Exum a lot. Due to Embiid's injury, I have him as the #2 prospect in the draft. He gets comparisons to Penny Hardaway because of his height/position, but Penny was more athletic, at least in terms of leaping ability. Exum has a great first step though, top notch speed (especially relative to his height), and most importantly, he has a superb feel for the game. Very smart for a 17 year old kid (which is what he was in the videos I've seen).

While his build is different, his game reminds me of Tony Parker or Andre Miller. Very crafty, and mostly a below the rim player, despite his size. He also projects as a solid defender and has a good reputation in terms of his work ethic. I don't know what you define "can't miss" as, but he's going to be (at worst) a solid NBA starter, with the potential to be a star.
