Mine is Josh Okogie. Limited on offense. Undersized at 6í4. A very very poor manís Smart.
He has G League written all over him.
We could stand to do a lot worse, imo, like Grayson Allen, lol , who is, without a doubt, the player from whom I absolutely want the Celtics to stay away. Can't stand him, and besides, as to how many dookies do we need on this team, anyway?
Your Allen hate is personal and not based on what he actually brings to the team. With Allen you know you're going to get shooting/floor spacing, passing, and a guy that's going to flat-out compete. He plays with fire, which turns people off, but so did Ainge, who was one of the most disliked players in the NBA.
If our starting lineup is as expected (Big 3, Tatum, and Brown) then one glaring hole we have is a consistent knockdown shooter off the bench. Definitely not a star by any means, but I could see a solid role player type of career for him. I've seen Sura, who played 10 seasons, comparisons and that doesn't seem far off at all.
Lol, nice try, man, but my disdain for his dirty play is not the only reason as to why I'm just, well, not a fan of the guy, as he has sub-par length, can't create his own shot, isn't much of an athlete, and simply doesn't have the quickness necessary to guard point guards, as he's also undersized to, at least theoretically, anyway, defend against most shooting guards. I know that you'll cite the numbers from the combine in terms of his agility, but I just don't see it, overall, with him, not to mention the fact that his in-conference play has dramatically declined for the last two years despite the continued presence of future NBA lottery picks, lol
. Dude hasn't even sniffed 40% in terms of overall fg% since his sophomore year
. Like, I'd understand a slight dip in percentages, or whatever, if the primary offensive option graduated and Allen suddenly had to assume said mantle of responsibility, as it were, but that's not the case, here. Not even close.
If you want someone who brings that toughness/glue guy stuff to the team, and I do, albeit with better size, quickness, athleticism, and shooting, not to mention an overall superior skillset, just take Rawle Alkins and call it a day.
Honestly, I'm not even sure as to whether or not Grayson Allen would even be considered to be a draft prospect if he had attended almost any other college save for Duke, but whatever
Here are those conference play numbers, btw - https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/grayson-allen-1.html
