Are you serious man? SG version of Saric?
Doncic is significantly better than Saric. He's the best prospect to ever come out of Europe.
Praying Sac drafts DoncicDoncic is a winner. He will make that team better.
This way we still have a chance at a high pick in 2019
So was Saric
Doncic is the SG version of Saric
good but not franchise calibre. Defense is average on the nba court. watch
They also said that about Rubio
He's arguably the best player in Europe right now and he's a teenager. That's the difference. The others were good European prospects. He's a 19 year old tearing up the second best league in the world.
And if you think his defence will be average you clearly haven't paid enough attention to him. He's 6'8" and nearly 230, and defends 1-4 in Europe. He'll be just fine defensively.
2nd best league on par with the G league?
He struggles driving past solid defenders. He has trouble staying in front of quick players. He can be passive(over passing) and I dont see much toughness
The nba is on a different level...we will see if he can stand out.
G-League level? Triboy, you really need to get yourself educated better with the talent over there so you don't sound foolish.
I can't wrap my head around how you compare fringe level talent like Mickey to a better defensive Bosh and Trey Burke to CP3, but then underrate a talent like Doncic. It's really crazy, man.
Hey Mr Dragan Bender
You should be the last guy to talk
Dragan Bender. What happened?
Your insistence on Bender being a bust is really weird. The kid is 20 years old and if you bother doing research you would realize over the last month of the season he averaged 13 ppg, 10.4 rpg, on 53.3% from the field and 46.7% from 3's. Are you basing your opinion on him being a bust because you're looking at raw numbers? If so, then you also need to look at his low usage rate. A 7'1" big that can shoot 36.6% from 3, and switch and defend on the perimeter is a very valuable thing.
The Poeltl thing is weird too. He's actually a very good player, who will be the starter next year if Jonas is moved. Even if he's not moved, he could supplant Jonas due to his ability to move his feet defend the perimeter. Not a star at all, which I never claimed him to be, but a solid big like I said he had the potential to be.
BTW...Mickey is no longer on an NBA team. The Heat didn't want him back and declined his option.
