    oh I misunderstood the poll, so I'm the only yes right now, which I didn't want to be

    I thought it meant like if we had the #12 pick would we trade it for Kyle, but Kyle from last year when we..........shutup, it was written in a confusing manner.

    SETH CURRY! I said it in another thread, this guy is probably going un-drafted. He's 6'2, pure shooter (He's part of the Curry family, it's in his blood), handles the ball really well, creates his own shot, he could definitely develop into a great combo guard. Plus, his father played in Toronto so maybe he'd like it here, who knows? I think it's worth a shot, and if he goes late in the draft, trade for him. He's be a pretty good guy to fall back on in his 2nd or 3rd year if Lowry isn't with us anymore.

    What does everyone think about this?

    That being said, no I'd rather have Lowry than the 12th overall selection in this years draft.

    Ask Blake Griffin about his brother Taylor.

    Have you seen Seth play at all? I don't think you can compare him with Taylor Griffin.

    That's all in the first half of a game in the tournament this year.

    Only reason he's projected to go late second round or un-drafted is because he's a senior.

    Taylor was never an All-American Nominee or a participant in the FIBA U-19 Worlds. He never led the nation's freshmen in scoring. And also he never made an all-ACC first team. Besides, Taylor was never a star in college anyways, while one can argue Seth was very much borderline. So there's a big difference between Taylor and Seth.

    Don't mean to sound harsh, just pointing out they aren't in the same category just because they have brothers in the NBA.

    That is a good point. Harshness deserved.

    My point was NBA success is not genetic.

    You are right.

    I have not seen a lot of college ball this year.

    Not sure how a 6'2" SG excels in the NBA. I don't think he has PG skills to even be called combo.

    I see millions in his future made in Europe.

    Agreed. They LOVE shooters overseas.

    Still, all my point is if we aren't going to get a draft pick Curry would be a good compensation if he goes un-drafted. It's low risk also. Not like the guy can't develop point guard handles, he's shown that he has some already. Plus he averaged 17ppg this season.

    Pretty nice game log. But whatever, it probably won't happen.

    2 of his top 5 scoring games came in the national tourney. That's pretty impressive.

    It's not like we don't have the money or the space on the team for him.

    If you can shoot you can make it in the NBA.

    No, like I said when this deal was announced I'd much rather we overpay for Dragic and keep our draft pick rather than get Lowry. Lowry has done nothing to change my opinion. He's not that great and he proved his court vision and decision making isn't that amazing.

    He had a pretty bad season compared to how he played in Houston but I don't think we should write the guy off just yet. This offseason should probably (I hope) do him some good. Just as it should for everyone.

    +1 I think Lowry is slightly better than Dragic -- but I wish we had given Fields contract to Lin or Dragic. We would of had the pick, we would of had a starting PG, we wouldn't have Fields contract (the Nash gamble would of be another case of Jermaine O'Neal anyways) and we probably wouldn't of made a desperation play for Gay.
