Regular Show wrote:So the Bulls are doing pretty well in the L column of the NBA standings. Only Dallas has a worse record than us right now. I can't tell if Dallas is genuinely this bad or is tanking hard? I'm pretty sure they're tanking because M. Cuban admitted that's what they would try to do once they became mediocre and/or bad. I feel bad for D. Nowitzki, but honestly he's just not that good anymore.
This upcoming draft isn't that deep in impact talent so the Bulls really need to land a top-3 pick.
I'm thrilled with any of Doncic, Porter, Ayton, or Bagley. Will be fine with Bamba too.
I'm really hoping to add some picks by taking on bad contracts. I'm thinking they'll have some nice opportunities over the next month or two.
I'm all in on M. Bagley and think he's the best player and has highest ceiling. I wish he wasn't playing for Duke, but whatever man. The problem I have with L. Doncic is that the scouting reports claim he's a good athlete, but not an amazing athlete.
His future position is either SG or point/small forward. Maybe he's part of the new breed of super big PGs? Anyway, when was the last time a European player came over and was super dominant at SG/SF? Usually impact European talents are big men like the Gasol brothers, Nowitzki, Jokic, R. Gobert, A. Sabonis back in the day, etc.
Sure, the 'Greek Freak' is technically European, but he's a world class athlete and his parents are from Nigeria. I can't think of too many European players at SF/SG that have developed into impact players...
