Default LOL We Got 2nd Pick

Lost out to the Hornets of all teams.

So who do we go for? Sullinger? Jones?

Either way, we're ****ed.

Could Sullinger play the 4 spot? He's a little undersized for the 5 spot at the NBA level I think, but have ready he might not be agile enough to play PF.

You probably can tell I've only watched him play a few times.

Do you think Thomas Robinson would be a decent pick?

Default Re: LOL We Got 2nd Pick

We all thought the system was rigged when Cleveland got the #1 pick when homeboy LeBron was in the draft. We all knew it was rigged when Chicago beat all the odds to land Rose. Stern obviously had a deal with Benson: buy the Hornets and you'll get the #1 pick and an all-star game. Makes me want to vomit.

I think a Biyombo/Robinson frontcourt could be intriguing. Theoretically their games compliment each other pretty well.

Theoretically...

Bismack is a younger Diop.

Speaking of Augustin, I hope Chicago can take him in exchange for the pick we gave up from the trade for Tyrus Thomas. Rose won't return to game shape for probably another full year so we have a chance to "erase" one of our past mistakes.

That's not very optimistic, is it? I wasn't sold on drafting Biyombo, I'm never sold on drafting any ultra-raw prospect. But Biyombo last season was significantly better than any season of Diop's.

I know its not optimistic, but the reason Diop got as much money as he did is because he had promising seasons in his first couple of years like Biyombo did.

Which is what the front office decided to do with Tyrus Thomas two seasons ago.

Biyombo, imo if he can be as good as a young Okafor he'll be a solid pick, but having said that, he does have a long way to go.

Anyway I think Thomas will bounce back next year. Last year's lockout really damaged this team beyond imagination. No summer camp, no full length training camp, no conditioning for many players, and it appeared as though some players just forgot how to play basketball.

Default Re: LOL We Got 2nd Pick

Unless averaging 2 pts 4 rebounds and a block a game is a promising season than Diop didn't have a promising season in his career until he averaged 2 points 1.8 blocks and 4.5 rebounds with the Mavs in 06. Kind of a bad comparison.

Hope you are joking about taking Sullinger or Jones with the 2nd pick also.
