So I thought Gonzaga was going to be the team to beat this year. They lost Tillie for the year but still have a couple of good prospects (Hachimura, who's played well so far and a freak of an athlete named Brandon Clarke). Check out the Clarke block at 40:45 of the video. He didn't see much time in the first half but in the second was a beast. 5 blocks and 4-4 shooting for the game. He really is a freak of athlete.

Another impressive showing for Brandon Clarke:
18 pts on 8-9 FGA. 4 boards and 4 blocks and 4 PF. Someone to keep an eye on, with one of our mid-first rounder, once conference play starts.
Rui Hachimura, who I always thought was a bit overrated to the point where I had to email nbdraft.net and complain when they had him mocked in the top 5, has been playing great. Someone else to keep an eye on for our lottery pick.

If anyone saw the Duke/Gonzaga game now knows this Clarke kid is now surely on the radar.
17 pts, 5 rb, 6 blks! Zion overpowered him a few times down low but he can do that to a lot of NBA guys as well. He needs a jump shot but he has a spot in the nba waiting for him.
Too bad the Zags lost Killian Tillie for the year or else that team would be unbeatable, at least until tourney time.

Antonio's numbers are like his fathers in the NBA, very modest.

Jordan Ray. Another guy I've never heard of.

he certainly does not lack for confidence or self-promotion. i guess being with the ball clan has rubbed off on him.  :-\

From the article:
I dont see any guards capable of what Im doing at my size as in putting up points and assists, Ray said. I believe Im a lottery pick.

Ja Morant and, to a slightly lesser degree, Shamorie Ponds say HI!

I think all our picks are going to be packaged in a deal.

If people had to pick right now between Rui Hachimura and Bol Bol as the future big man compliment to Robert Williams III, who ya got?

IMO it's a very clear cut case of Floor vs Ceiling. Rui is the rock solid Sophmore who is fairley close to a cant miss rotation contributor. Bol Bol has flashes of the highest levels of skill and production but can tend to float at times.

I think that I would take Hachimura over Bol as a more rock solid compliment to RWIII but I could also imagine a world where 7 years down the road, that statement would be laughable.

Who ya got?

Its not always easy.  Didnt a lot of us think that the year we drafted Zizic and Yabu?  It would make the most sense though.

Right now with the morning coffee in my veins....a draft that would excite me is as follows:



with the Sacramento or Grizzlies pick:  Ja Morant, possible Rozier replacer.  He's smooth!

paired with one of the following:  Little, Hachimura, Doumbouya..   PF shore up

Clippers or Celtics pick:  KZ Okpala (potential.... no need to play next year)

Final pick:  Stash Samanic



So Morant, a PF from above, Okpala and stash of Samanic


stick with Brown and Smart as SG's...
Center we have Baynes and Williams.


Would also be ok with backup (or future) center help instead of Samanic.  Gafford or Bruno Fernando....

Tough call!  at this point I too would take the safer Hachimura.  Let's see if Bol Bol turn himself into an obvious top tier pick as the season progresses...
