Yup. Remember the Kyrie and Dion Waiters thing?

Mayo-Parker SG-SF will be the fattest wing duo in the league by far.

Not that Cleveland is better but in Miluwakee their best young player is a small forward and in Cleveland their biggest hole is arguably at small forward.

It's near Chicago.

I disagree Milbuck, Bucks have a better potential team, particularly for a scorer like him. On Cleveland he has to deal with Kyrie, who is himself a scoring pointguard.

Miluakee is basically Mayo, Illyasova and Knight, and a bunch of other guys with the athleticism to cover his defensive frailties.

The only reason I can think of is Chicago is considerably closer to Milwaukee than it is Cleveland.

I never understood this logic. Star basketball players dont care about their colleges. Why would they? They spent a forced year there and left.

In any case I like this news. If Wiggins had a great workout and Parker didn't, I want them to take Wiggins, but we'll see how this goes. Just 3 days until this shit goes down and we see what the hell the Cavs do this year out of left field. The Embiid injury totally made the draft unpredictable at this point.

OJ really let himself go. He looked promising in his rookie year, now he looks like a total scrub.

Agreed to an extent but it also goes along with the type of player you want leading your franchise, an alpha who isn't going to take the backseat to anyone.

That being said, tanking a workout and being overweight gives me far more concerns than him not wanting to go to Cleveland does.

Exactly. If he truly was ultra competitive he wouldn't be fat and tanking workouts.

if youre a lottery pick, the LAST thing you wanna do is play with a selfish diva like Kyrie who doesnt look out for his teammates

Goodluck Jabari.. I hope your tank works.. you deserve better than Kyrie

lol at people thinking Kyrie is the reason.


Why would it even matter to Jabari? I doubt they've even spent more than 5 minutes together
