Typical here, nothing but ascerbic takes when the Cavs make a pick. Look, this is the nature of an NBA draft... You create your own draft board from what you have watched from college basketball or from draft highlights, but do your REALLY know the top 20 guys? When you were watching the actual Cavaliers play four times a week all season up until two weeks ago? At some point, you have to have a little faith in the scouts who were paid to just focus on the lottery all college season.

That's where I am on this. I personally liked Shai Gilgeous-Alexander more but I will also admit that I don't do this for a living, and in my spare time I watch more pro basketball than college ball. Let's see how this goes, because Sexton has a clear set of strengths. Mentally, he might be the strongest guy in this draft.
All that plus BW said SGA let the cavs know he didn't want them to draft him. Sexton has is a smart, hard working, talented young man. him, cedi and nance have the type of fight I want this team to be built on.

SGA traded to the Clippers, and everyone believed Jerry West was the force behind SGA not working out for any team.

He has a mamba mentality. He's not kyrie, but that's (probably) a good thing.

Kyrie for the rights to Collin Sexton. I can't get my brain around it.

Is Koby worse than John Paxson?

We should have traded the pick and the midget 5 minutes after we acquired them...

Pardon my ignorance, but who is MZavagno? That's a clown take. The guy has some serious skill, even if I ranked a few players higher.
He's part of the Cavalytics crew: like his analysis quite a bit during the playoffs

I have been a huge fan of Sexton - very competitive, high motor, and is always looking to improve his game. Very fiery, aggressive to the hoop, and is not afraid of big men. He will challenge you and he has good handles. His outside shot does need improvement but his motor and attitude can change that in his career. In high school he was not that great shooter from outside as a freshman and worked his game every single day.

I think people will change their opinion on him assuming he is still here.
