    Edwards goes first. It’s the right move. Young and talented team can all grow together

    • Bulls take Patrick Williams and karnisovas is just garpax, picking losers, this team will never be anything

    • jessethegreat

      Goodell has 2 billion times better hair than Silver though. I’d take Goodell’s hair AND his fat stacks of cash he takes in every season over Silver’s charisma

    • specialfriedrice

      Silver…charisma…he literally looks and acts like he is a robot…

    • KnickerbockerAl

      Really … not a Ball fan. Hornets should of taken Okongwu. We’ll see

    • Im dying….who is patrick williams?… i was happy when hornet draft lamelo,but then bulls pick patrick.

      • jpritch002

        Patrick Williams is a great three and d player that can play SF PF and C… he’s one of the best defenders in this class and has a great three shot… he should fit in well with what the Bulls are doing…

        The Bulls lineup without changes rn
        PG – White
        SG – Lavine
        SF – Williams
        PF – Markannen
        C – Carter

        • White and lavine at bulls backcourt will crush bulls defense.and both arent playmaker.both are scoring guard.i hope bulls draft haliburton or avdija.both are great playmaker.

  2. Little_Dunker_45

    Lol! Who on the bulls need some flowers help? Anyone? Great little piece.

  3. x%sure

    Ball should play with a smaller guard anyway. Should be a good combo with Graham.

  4. Sillivan

    How many times did I say FSU players Williams and Vassell are underrated?

    I love nba body type

    • 123Redsox

      That means nothing. He isnt the first guy to get drafted based on how they project and not have veen starter as a freshman. Happens every year

  5. KnickerbockerAl

    Well goodby Okoro, next Jimmy Butler lols
    Thought we could get him it’s Ok still nice players

  6. KnickerbockerAl

    Toppin yeeeessssss. Toppin. Yeeeessssd
    Can’t believe he’s coming

  7. KnickerbockerAl

    Please pass on Deni .
    Big pressure to take Deni in NYC lol. Please
    Please take Toppin

  8. Howie415

    Thompson suffers a severe leg injury. Looks like the Warriors are going to be focused on a rebuild.

  9. KnickerbockerAl

    Merry Christmas and HappyNew Year
    Woo Hoo woo hoo . Freaking celebrating tonight freak Covid yeeeeeessssssss
    YEEeeeeesssssssssss HUUUuuuuuggggggeee

    • Yeah, I’m glad they got Toppin. Needs to work on his defense, but they wanted him to begin with and they ended up getting him without having to trade up.

  10. hiflew

    Wow, the Wizards got a gift here. Deni was probably the perfect fit for their team , but I didn’t think there was any way at all for them to get him. If they can find a vet big man and not overpay him like they have done in the past, the Wall/Beal/Deni/Rui combo should be pretty good in the East.

      • hiflew

        I don’t hate that idea. Although if they get Boogie, they should pair him with a good backup just in case he can’t come back from his injuries. One name that comes to mind is fellow Kentucky alum, Willie Cauley-Stein.

  11. KnickerbockerAl

    Never thought we get Toppin. Unreal
    Can not believe Halliburton still on board. Wiz should of jumped on that

    • Luke Adams

      I’d been labeling the international guys by where they were playing rather than where they’re from (ie. Ball as Australia rather than USA), but I could adjust that approach.

      • That makes sense. Just seemed most sites listed his nationality instead of his league. Given he’s an American born-French playing Germany, you could go a lot of ways.

  12. KnickerbockerAl

    Celtics blew it. All he can do is shoot. They better hope they can teach him. All I ever saw was a spot up shooter. Can’t get his own shot. Too high for him

  13. KnickerbockerAl

    How could Celts pass on Achiuwa. He can handle Bam lols. Blew it. If he drops to Minny it’s a coup. Edwards and Achiuwa both can start next yr

  14. case7187

    Anyone else ready to say FIRE Danny now just what the C’s need another 6’6 forward to hold down the end of the bench I hope Tatum smart and doesn’t sign a max extension with them since they don’t want to give him any help

    • Curtisrowe

      Gotta see how things play out over the next few days with Hayward before pointing fingers, but agreed as it stands now they don’t need another wing.

      • case7187

        Even if Hayward is to leave he’s not a player that’s going to help us win now and Tatums clock is click down and if Harden ends up with the nets it could make him want to play elsewhere on a team that knows how to get what they need not what sounds good

  15. mgomrjsurf

    So far Silver hasen’t announced a Trade and other minus pertaining to coverage every year is only on one network and NBATV is hopping they can show it live to with its own crew because has a a Draft expert,Matt Winer or Ernie Johnson or so on as host but don’t know about Insider with Aldridge gone.

  16. KnickerbockerAl

    Can’t believe Stewart went ahead of Achiuwa. Both good 4s. Achiuwa more athletic can go outside with wings. People are missing on this guy.’im telling you guys.

  17. KnickerbockerAl

    Pokusevski is a great pick for OKC well done. This guy is a future Star. Promise. He’s yrs away cause he’s rail thin. Draft and stash. Give him 3 yrs and he will be ROY serious dudes

  18. God d4mn kings….they took my favorit player.please bulls…make a deal with the kings.

  19. KnickerbockerAl

    If Bey is still there at 23 I’m gonna lose it..

    Didn’t know Clippers had a pick. Don’t blow it

  20. x%sure

    Two of the highest risers? Vassell and Jalen Smith, both late teens at best on expert prospect lists, now lottery picks at 10 & 11. Sam Vecenie listen up when I poke. I started talking him up last year. Toppin fell but got maybe the best team to go to, Knicks… now get rid of Randle like everyone says.

    Kirin Lewis, Patrick Williams also risers. Williams is solid, but the biggest surprise riser. You want something flashier at #4! Did Karnisova overthink it?

    • KnickerbockerAl

      Smith is a solid big. He’s fits Suns well. I think that was the thing. Plus they let their bigs go in FA

  21. KnickerbockerAl

    I like Bey, he could be best wing. Has a chance, 2way player that can shoot. Nice pick by Pistons

  22. x%sure

    After waiting so long, this is going too fast… Trying to watch the Chicago shows on tv!

    Presti no surprise taking Pokusevski, he likes long, Poku-mon is that.

    Detroit got some guys who play DEE-troit BA-sketball

  23. harden-westbrook-mvps

    What a day for Golden State, first Klay Thompson gets hurt then they throw away the #2 pick on James Wiseman. Poor Warriors.

    • Since the opposite happens to whatever you say its good news for GSW. Thompson injury will not be very bad and Wiseman rookie of the year.

        • x%sure

          I’m not sure I like Achuiwa on Adebayo’s team when he has a contract coming up… if he plays the 4 while Adebayo plays the 5, Bam’s stats will decline… tough business.

    • KnickerbockerAl

      Has but he can score. Give him a chance. They say he’s one of best athletes

      • hiflew

        I am a huge Kentucky fan, but to be honest I was never all that impressed with Maxey. He is not as bad a shooter as his numbers imply. The reason his percentages are low is because he took WAY too many ill-advised shots. He would drive 1 on 5 with his back to the basket and still shoot wild shots. They looked good when they went in, but more often than not it just looked really bad. I think Maxey is going to be more of a James Young or Archie Goodwin than a Jamal Murray. I hope he is a success, but I don’t really hold out a lot of hope for him.

        • KnickerbockerAl

          Yeah I watched some times he was wild. But Knicks assistant coach from Kentucky swears by him. He thinks he’s another Wade. Same body type. I know he can score. Haven’t really watched him a lot. If Zi like someone I will watch him for wks lol

          • phillyballers

            Another Wade. Like Zhaire is another Kawhi. Ugh just not seeing this one panning out. But well see.

          • hiflew

            Unless you are talking about Wade Baldwin, there is no way Maxey is like Wade. He might like Dwyane Wade the same way that a lump of coal is like a diamond, so given a few million years or so, he might shine.

            • x%sure

              Not fond of Maxey on the Sixers either… it can be a grim group and he plays better happy I think. Well he could use some discipline and the Philly stars are large lol.

              As for the DWade comparison… DWade has a much different personality, but the coach meant physically.

              I think to an extant that it was too easy for him in college, given some apparently overly modest goals… like, he was just biding his time until the pros. That would be aggravating to a UK fan. The NBA should see more of an efficiency awareness. He can look like he’s just spinning his wheels.

              • hiflew

                It wasn’t just that. I am kind of used to the one and done thing. But Maxey was not the #1 recruit for the class, that was Kahlil Whitney (who will probably be working at Arby’s in 3 years). Anyway, Maxey parlayed a really great game early in the year into everyone thinking he was the superstar of the team. He wasn’t, but he played like he thought he was. His lack of discipline and poor shot selection is what bothered me about him more than anything. Those things are fixable, but I just don’t know if he has the mentality to do it.

  24. mlbnyyfan

    I’m thinking Hampton or Tre Jones. Flynn would be okay too. Just take a PG.

    • KnickerbockerAl

      Terry they liked too. Tyler Bey still there. Thought he went. It was other Bey. I like Tyler Bey. He’d be good

  25. mike.honcho

    The HEAT always seem to get these gift-picks ……… Precious looks like a great fit for them.

  26. KnickerbockerAl

    A trade ??? Threw me off. But I like it. Bey or Flynn I’m super happy

    • hiflew

      Trust me, you will love Immanuel Quickley. One of my favorite Cats from the past few years.

    • I love how the ESPN crew is not considering any trades as official yet so they’re making no sense in the studio. Woj tells them that the Knicks traded for the 25th pick and they immediately start talking about how Quickley is going to fit in with Shai Gilgeous Alexander in OKC. Calipari had to set them all straight by saying ‘HE’S GOING TO THE KNICKS!’. Hilarious.

      • hiflew

        I’m not even bothering with ESPN. I am watching, or rather listening to, NBATV instead. You have to put up with Brendon Haywood which is unbearable at times and Steve Smith seems really sleepy for some reason, but the rest of guys are much better than their ESPN counterparts.

        • I did not watch NBATV, but I’m wishing I did. ESPN’s whole deal about not considering trades as official yet has made for some very confusing moments.

          I understand their logic, but from an odds standpoint, what are the chances a trade gets rejected by the league? It’s got to be way lower than the chances it goes through. So I don’t really get why they keep talking about how picks will fit in on teams who have already traded them.

  27. KnickerbockerAl

    Well not the PG I thought. But it’s gotta be our assistant coach from Kentucky. He’s considered a good talent. Don’t really know much about him. Gonna chk him out now lols. He’s got size and good numbers

    • hiflew

      He went from being a disappointing afterthought in his freshman year to being the SEC player of the year as a sophomore. I honestly thought he would be one of the UK players that would transfer because they turned out to be not as good as their HS rankings thought. But he improved as much as anyone I have seen from a freshman to a sophomore except for PJ Washington.

  28. hiflew

    Azubuike at 27????!!!!! The best I saw him in any mock draft was in the early 50s. Even if you like him enough to take him, you have to realize the vale involved here. Horrible pick by Utah.

    • KnickerbockerAl

      He’s a big dude. Think Drummond. Gonna be an old school center. But why you take him when you have Rudy. I hear ya.

      • hiflew

        I get the player. I watched him at Kansas, but even without Rudy, you could have gotten this guy at pick 47. Why not trade away 27, gather a future asset and pick him later on?

  29. White and lavine at bulls backcourt will crush bulls defense.and both arent playmaker.both are scoring guard.i hope bulls draft haliburton or avdija.both are great playmaker.

    • hiflew

      You seem to be a couple of hours behind the rest of the world. The Bulls already passed on those two in favor of Patrick Williams 2 hours ago.

      • It was a bad connection.i made this comment before bulls took patrick.its sad day for me.i dont know who is patrick

        • hiflew

          I gotcha. He’s been rising up draft boards the past few days. I guess he did very well in interviews and such. I don’t personally think it was a good pick, but he is a SF and that was the Bulls biggest need, so it may work out.

  30. KnickerbockerAl

    J McDanields is a weird dude. He looks great at times. Then he looks like he’s jogging. He got skills. He puts it together cause he’s still a kid. He could be special. I take a chance on him good look here.

  31. KnickerbockerAl

    Would have loved Carey Jr. That’s a nice pick by Hornets. I’m good with Oturu here. He’s a solid 4 . Can backup Toppin can also play C. Great rebounder. I’m good.

  32. kroeg49

    I find it hard to believe that Chicago Bulls did a complete change of their management, then picked a 6’8” forward, who hasn’t started ONE college game, while averaging a paltry 9.2 points a game. New management, more of the same!

  33. Funny the first 10 picks in the 2nd round were traded at least once. In fact, a majority of picks after the lottery were traded at some point.

  34. hiflew

    Isaiah Joe at 49 to the Sixers. I thought they gave him a promise at either 21 or 34.

  35. blueblood1217

    What did the Boston just do at 47? It looks like they just wasted a pick imo. Maybe the kid from Israel can play, but I think I would have taken the kid from Zona . Maybe it’s a draft and stash. Has any of youse guys ever heard of the kid?

  36. x%sure

    Memphis at 30 & 35 took Desmond Bane & Xavier Tilman. I have a good feeling about these. Useful minutes filling needs keeping the stars shining.

    • hiflew

      I like the picks too. The names are fantastic as well. They sound like soap opera characters.

    • wagner13

      This Memphis fan certainly agrees. Bane should provide some instant offense off the bench and Tillman can spell either JJJ or Valanciunas as depth in the frontcourt

      • x%sure

        I like Tillman as a guy who can figure out how to work with Morant. Not sure but he seemed kind of solo. I thought Brooks could mesh but he’s not that good.

  37. hiflew

    Back to back picks of guys named Cassius. That hasn’t since the Italian Gladiator Draft of 223 AD in ancient Rome.

  38. brownscavsr4me

    Anyone else frustrated the entire 2nd round is consistently interrupted by commercials? I want to hear them talk about the picks being made! Finding out Cassius Stanley has been drafted with an Arby’s commercial in the background isn’t what I envisioned.

    • hiflew

      On NBATV it just seemed like even the first round picks were just something that happened to interrupt their interviews. I think I enjoyed the coverage here more. Especially the 2nd round.

  39. KnickerbockerAl

    Now let’s see who gets Jay Scrubb as undrafted to come in and play. I certainly would invite him.

  40. harden-westbrook-mvps

    It’s good to see the Rockets adding someone, although it’s unlikely a 2nd round pick will make much of an impact his rookie season. Although being the son of a former #1 overall pick maybe he can play significant minutes if things go well.
