Is Sngler athletic enough? I'd steer clear of him. I think we need a SF, but one that can defend more than score.

Too bad he had a bad game. He never plays a lot of minutes but he play good. He played bad then, especially on D.

From what I have seen most scouting reports have him a decent man defender with mobility problems (mainly Lateral). He has huge upside in BB IQ, experience ( he is the same age as Love, Beasley, Bayless). He hit or miss from three, but inside the arch he is up over 50%.

My thinking was that Weems and Ju Ju aren't going to be here next year. We could grab a more experienced D minded SF through FA or a trade or even our first pick. And have him off the bench.

Irving, Kantner if he can pass a physical, Barnes (has he even decalred?)... whoever is best and available.

I don't honestly know enough about them (its not March yet) but neither of the Jones' look like true penetrating SF, Sullinger looks too small for PF etc.... man this is an ugly draft.

They should take the best player available at the position they draft at.

A couple of miscues, mostly Babcocks....

Raphael Araujo instead of Andrea Iguodala
Joey Graham instead of Danny Granger

YouTube - Duke Bound Kyrie Irving Official Hoopmixtape; Best PG In The Class?
This is what we shouldn't be basing our pick on, High school and McDonalds All American High lights. 6'2!! 8 GAMES IN COLLEGE!! INJURY!!

But he crossed-up some asshole from prep school in NewJersey. So He is probably ready to take Jose's job. Right?!! GHAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!

When have you seen this guy play, tell me? Because I'm pretty sure I could type in any name from the NBA and get equal or more impressive mix tape. This guy screws are team, because he is at least two years away from having the ability to handle NBA minutes. Meaning we are drafting a 3rd string PG with our first draft pick. So not only are wasting the pick we have to hold onto Jose and Jared.

Bayless starting? I'm far from ready to think he's ready to be a starter. Jose, Bargs, TPE need to be moved for a PG + Center if we take a SF in the draft.

I watched him with Duke, and they are probably the best team in the nation with him. He defends, shoots well from the outside, and is extremely crafty off the dribble in transition and in the lane. Best true-ish PG prospect since Chris Paul, who most - myself included - liken Irving's game to. He would start for us.

Dude your not reading. I don't want to base our pick on Mix tapes. If you really want too. I suggest you do it form a mix tape where the guy is actually playing players from college. I repeat, 8 fuck'n Games in College. He didn't play a single team ranked above 15. This guy is a huge question mark.
