This hawks fan isn’t even trying to hide his bias, Pick 17 in a weak draft that is said to have no depth has extremely low value

They even have more questions without the projection and of course Reddish was held back by Williamson especially. Even when he was hurt for 2 games, you aren't going to change the style much. Barrett taking up the court and throwing up wild shots.
Don't eat the white reddish from doggies

Not sure if I'm reading this wrong or what, but Chris Paul had 160 steals in 63 college games. Sexton had just 28 in 33 games.
Hmm, I though I heard differently last year. Maybe it was a per game their freshman year? Anyways - my overall point still stands.

Barrett falling to 5 sounds like a trigger to me. He is a entitled brat, but angry entitled brats are not a bad thing.
Yeah seriously dude is Larry Hughes 2.0

His ego might be his downfall. Some people use their ego to light the fire inside and bring them to new heights when challenged. Some think they're too good until they face others that are better and that makes them lose the confidence they once had. Most don't recover. I think Barrett fall in the latter bracket.

Good thing we have a guy name Sexton that use that ego/confidence to push him to new heights. That's why I prefer drafting Culver who has the same work ethics as Sexton or Hunter who is a winner.

Being either entitled or humble isn't that important. What's important is do you want to be great, and are you ready to work like hell to be great.

Yes and Barrett don't have that trait. He's more ego/entitlement then substance on the floor.

I actually think it's good that Barrett wants to be in NYC so bad because it will hurt that much more if they pass him up or trade the #3 pick. No better way for him to sour on the Knicks. If the Lakers didn't trade away #4, it would have made the situation better if Barrett ultimately landed with the Cavs.

I want our guys to buy in on our organization and if his dream of NYC and LA got killed early on, we won't have to hear about it for years like we heard with LeBron.

I would like to see Cavs trade 5th to Atlanta for the 8th and 17th. Picks 5 thru 10 are same talent level and pretty well come with the same reward/risk level. I like this draft more then most. I think there are a lot of average starters or good role players at the SG/wing spot.

Reddish
Hunter
Culver
Langford
Porter
Little
Herro
Johnson



8th--Reddish/Hunter. I think one of the 2 will be there.
17th--Langford. will be steal of draft. guy was hurt all year. NBA starting SG
26th--Porter.
