Lakers just killed any hope LBJ had at another ring.
Most surprising draft

I don't get this for the Lakers. Westbrook has been a declining player for 4 years. He can't shoot, at all, and his one skill, explosiveness, is only gonna get worse. This reminds me of Malone and Payton joining past their primes. But, they didn't have to give up much.

I agree he can't shoot but cmon he has one skill? Lol that's crazy talk. And he's 32. Malone was 40 and Payton was 35. Not a good comparison.

If you watched any part of the 2nd half of the season Russ had - you wouldn't say he's declining. In the last 25 games of the season - he averaged:

23ppg
13.5apg
13.5rpg

Spacing will be a problem - but it was a problem for Lakers in 2020 when they won the title also. Lakers will put ridiculous amounts of pressure on the rim and I've no doubt that they'll add some shooting this summer to compliment these guys.

Russ has his flaws and doesn't fit perfect with Lebron and Ad but he has several elite skills and for what Lakers gave up - this is a massive win for Lakers.

Is JRG happy that Suggs fell to 5?

As for my Rockets, happy so far, Jalen Green at 2, Alpren Sengun at 16 via OKC(Traded 2 heavily protected 1st's from DET & WAS), also have 23 & 24 too.

I thought for sure TOR was taking Suggs, do you like Wagner?

Don't know a ton about him other than he is super young and his brother already plays on the team. Seems like he is good at everything, but not great at much. We'll see.
Rockets draft picks so far:

2nd- SG Jalen Green
16th- C Alpren Sengun
23rd- PF Usman Garuba
24th- SG Josh Christopher

Wondering if they buy a 2nd rd pick.

Last two are meh. First 2 are my great. It's still hard to get behind this team with no Morey and Tilman still owning it.
Jazz with a steal at 40.
