Here's a new one for ya :P
Cut my list in half and you are still off by an order of magnitude. You just got owned big time, Joey. Your so-called statistical proof just got blown out of the water. Just man up and take it.
The simple math is if you want to include undrafted players then, yes, you are going to have more NBA players available. However, the odds or percentages of success decrease.
169/600 = 28%
169/60,0000 = 0.0028%
Based on logic alone, you shouldn't include undrafted plrayers. The orginal premis was whether you could get a better player than JJ with the Miami pick. You can't use undrafted players in your argument precisely because they were undrafted...you didn't need a pick to get them. You are not really comparing apples to apples.
The real question is are there any pearls in THIS year's draft, apparently Colangelo and his scouting department doesn't think so. Or maybe Colangelo plans to buy a pick off someone on draft day, which would make all this arguing pointless.
("I just got owned"?, "How do I like them Apples"? , "Man up"??
How the [censored] can I have a real conversation with this person?!?)
At this point Golden, it's not really whether I specifically am wrong on the matter. I disagree with the argument. And alot of others here do as well.You are arguing that getting a guy like Smush Parker is a good thing. Or any other scrub thats managed to play 3 measily seasons in the league. I am arguing that a player of James Johnsons caliber will be playing in the league for 10 years+. That is the difference.
So you keep thinking that Tyrone Nesby is going to be our starting SF. And how bout Kevin Ollie to the rescue at PG??
And I will continue to think otherwise.
Done with this.
tyrone nesby threw me for a loop... had to google him to find his highly inconsequential NBA career.
i google alot of things..
for instance... joey hesketh is either an old school baseball player, or a gay hooker from Tacoma, WA.
i prefer to believe the name came from the second one.
hahaha Joe Hesketh was a pitcher for the Red Sox and the Expos. As well as a gay hooker from Tacoma. They are one and the same.
there is no logical argument against stupid.
The Beast is the best one in my opinion.
His mixed-martial arts background, is karate. Some fighters start with Ji-Jitsu or more commonly wrestling, JJ was a national champion in karate.
So my vote is for the 'karate kid'.
How about we just call him 'James'... ? Too boring? Jim maybe?
i got my childhood nickname tattooed on my shoulder.... and you know what... after years of having it, and growing up, maturing, and becoming an adult...
STUPID NICKNAMES ARE EMBARASSING
If i came into work every day and people were like "Hey what's up, Mad Dog McCallister!" (not my nickname, just the first thing that popped in my head).. i would HATE my life.
