Sexton looks a bit taller on TV..
I would trade Collin for almost everyone on that list save a few. It's easier to list the guys I wouldn't trade Sexton for:
Mikal?I would trade Collin for almost everyone on that list save a few. It's easier to list the guys I wouldn't trade Sexton for:
Bam (and this is more because of Allen)
Lonzo (mostly because of contract, and that I'd want Lonzo to pair with Sexton)
I am kinda happy with sexton being he was the 8 pick. He is a budding all star. Few more tweaks and he is there. Garland showed last night what is in him and made strides this year. Allen and nance are solid. Okoro is very young and has never played a game every other dayI liked Mikal on draft night too. He'd be a great fit with Garland, Okoro, Love and Allen. He's not as special a scorer as Collin, but he plays a winning game.
Hartenstein has been a force! He's that rotational guy you sign to like a 4 year deal before other teams figure it out. He can move the ball, is actually a good assist guy, and had some crazy/lucky finishes. I feel like he is that glue guy who could spot start, and he has height.Stevens and hartenstein have potential as off the bench player
Last night was about Garland, but Sexton has been awesome since that brutal 10 game losing streak. He's improved his ability to play off the ball tenfold since last season. His shot selection, while still not perfect, is far improved from his rookie season (where it felt like he led the league in percentage of shots as long 2s). Disagree with anyone posting that Sexland feels like "my turn, your turn" ala Kyrie & Dion. I actually think these two are incredibly dynamic offensively and complement each other fairly well, especially as Sexton continues to improve at playing off-ball and Garland continues to come into his own.
I don't take any opinion pieces seriously from ESPN, save for Zach Lowe & the draft guys (Givony & Schmitz). But including Sexton and Allen in their top 25, albeit towards the bottom, is a positive sign. Cavs young players will never get respect around the league until we have a winning team. Just how it goes. Based purely on talent, is Sexton really that far off from Donovan Mitchell, ESPN's 4th best young player? Personally, I don't think so. Mitchell has the edge from an explosiveness standpoint (although Sexton has some too) and has proven his abilities in the playoffs, but Sexton I think has higher upside as an efficient shot-maker.
What happened to this guy? He's been quiet lately.
