bol bol looks likes an interesting prospect
Not sure how he doesn't break when elbowed by someone like Dwight but he's very skilled for a guy that tall and his length allows him to cover reasonably well on defense

Someone I know who runs in NBA circles was convinced he would go top 10 but apparently “maturity” was the big problem.

his college film is great. Very skilled. I commented on this a year ago.

Yeah I heard something about the maturity thing too. It was sorta hyped like he was delusional and entitled? Maybe he wasn't delusional?

I was worried about his high center of gravity playing C, but if he is playing as a wing, that is much different. He looks sort of like Dirk out there. Handling the ball and shooting. Dirk was always pushed around in the paint because he wasn't super strong and had a high center of gravity like Bol, but it didn't matter because he essentially played like a SG.

I was shocked at 44 too. I thought the Cavs should have considered him at 26.

I'm so excited for the playoffs today but I know I'm just going to end up depressed we didn't draft Michael Porter Jr.

That kid is going to be a flat out superstar.

If he stays healthy. His talent was never a question, but he has had a history of bad injuries. His family members do too.

I was beating the drum for him even with the injury concerns. We were one of those teams where it would've been worth the risk. As if we needed a player who needed to play and when now anyway. We could've let him rest up with supposedly one of the better medical teams in the league.

All I know is in this draft we better not select a low ceiling "safe" player. We need to go all out and get the high level players with the most star potential. Right now for me it's Wiseman and Avidja.

The Nuggets are a good team to watch when they are hitting.
