Do you think his information is wrong or he just says what the organization wants him to? I find he is very credulous and does the latter.I've found Fedor to be full of shit in all aspects of his work
Those are all valid concerns. I think Wiseman has potential to be much more than Capela on offense. For starters, his shooting mechanics are solid. I think he could develop a mid range game.I really hope teams will be able to take these prospects through thorough workouts.
I'm a fan of taking a chance with a talent like Wiseman. We really need some big time young talent with length.
But we need to determine if he has potential for a diverse offensive game. Can he step out and shoot it? How are his handles? Is he a decent passing big?
You can't end up taking a Nerlens Noel or even Clint Capela type of limited big man in the top 5. I think he can be much more than that, but a workout could help.
Fedor is a PR machine for the cavs, never says a bad word about them. But I thought it he did that in exchange for info that’s why I think he’s the most reliableDo you think his information is wrong or he just says what the organization wants him to? I find he is very credulous and does the latter.
He is the most bloviating beat writer. I dunno how Fedor obtained this air of authority he tries to surround himself with. His podcast unlistenable as he opines and takes this philosophical tone explaining everything to his co-host like he is an idiot.
Seems like a lot of hot air.
Fedor's info is like a 3 day old deli platter that's never been refrigerated. I mean sure, it's technically info, but it's days old, rotten, and starting to smell.Fedor is a PR machine for the cavs, never says a bad word about them.

You lost me here.This situation with Wiseman & Okongwu reminds me of Dwight / Emeka in '04. Okongwu is a nice consolation prize imo, but Wiseman has so much more star potential.
C'mon Keys, boobs don't help you get taken seriously in sports reporting...regardless of gender.Windhorst has both the best Intel on what goes on behind the scenes, and strong opinions that can get in the way of simply reporting straight facts. He has earned that right. He didn't get where he is now because he has a body like Erin Andrews.
I do believe the info he collected behind why Drummond became a Cavalier checks out.
The last thing I'm looking for in a big is perimeter defense. Wiseman is better in every other area of the game & has far more upside than Okongwu.You lost me here.
I think Wiseman's one big concern is we don't have footage of him guarding on the perimeter like we do Okongwu. Okongwu looks like he has position switching potential and from all the AAU footage I see of Wiseman, he is very clunky in that role.
Certainly Wiseman has matured physically and maybe his lateral movement will catch up but Okongwu looks like a plug and play defender in the P&R......and you cannot understate the value that specific skill holds in the modern NBA for bigs.
Wiseman's physical talent is exciting.......but lateral movement is the death of bigs in the NBA, especially non passing ones. If teams can play him off the floor on the perimeter, it doesn't really matter what rim protection value he provides.
Deep dive on the joke I didn't expect anyone to take seriously?C'mon Keys, boobs don't help you get taken seriously in sports reporting...regardless of gender.
Haha, was just following up with another joke, not intending to prompt a deep dive. This obviously isn't the right place for the discussion in any case. Good on ESPN for giving a platform to all kinds of people regardless of gender, appearance, or competence!Deep dive on the joke I didn't expect anyone to take seriously?
Don't mind if I do.
Michelle Beadle - Held a prominent position with ESPN up until this year, when her rack and her face could no longer counterbalance her ineptitude.
Molly Qerim Rose - Anchor of ESPN First Take, minimal respect but a daily platform for talking NFL and NBA. Married to Jalen Rose. Nice jugs.
Rachel Nichols - Host of ESPN E:60, average to above average respect level on a daily platform, recently in a recorded conversation scandal, average bustline.
Ramona Shelburne - An outlier ESPN correspondent who ate her way off camera, managed to stay relevant by blindly supporting and speading every sports rumor that hurts small markets and helps the Lakers and Clippers.
So is there a correlation between ESPN body shape and the platform they are provided? Lemmie know.
What NBA bigs do you think provide plus value as players who can't at least tread water in perimeter action?The last thing I'm looking for in a big is perimeter defense. Wiseman is better in every other area of the game & has far more upside than Okongwu.
