    That's literally the least surprising thing they could've reported from that.
    Those two are the athletic freaks of this years class; always have been.

    More surprised to not hear Wiggins listed as a 'winner' in the Athletics department.
    Wiggins didn't participate in anything at the combine.

    Ah yes, touché. Though, that picture of him jumping is all that's needed really. LOL

    Do you think we could slide GV to SG, and have Ennis as our backup PG?
    I think so. Greivs could play that Manu Ginobili role, as he has the size (he's 6'6"). He can also shoot, pun intended. And they did use him at the 2 when they play small ball with Lowry at the point and Demar at the 3.

    Wiggins might've hurt himself in some of the strength testing, and possibly even some of the speed or agility drills if he hasn't trained adequately for them, so yeah it was probably a smart move to not be in the combine. He's already considered the best athlete in the class, no need to do anything that might change that.

    Jabari would've really hurt himself in the combine imo, so that's why he didn't go I suppose. Embid, I'm not sure.

    See, i'd rather draft Kyle Anderson (in the mock drafts he's somewhere between 18-23 and have him be a DD-Ross backup. A bench unit with Vasquez and Anderson is going to cut apart other 2nd units with passing and three-point shooting. You would be able to throw a completely different look at teams if you had GV-Anderson-NewBackupSF-Patterson-NewBackupC off the bench. Reminds me a bit of the Nets starting lineup actually. And those bench units that play for 5-15 minutes with Lowry off-ball with GV? KL-GV-Anderson-Patterson-NewBackupC is a defense's nightmare.

    Jarnell Stokes was an offensive force at Tennessee always coming up big in the tournament games and the important TV games against teams like Kentucky. I was surprised he didn't drop a few pounds for the combine weigh in. Still has a 36" vert at 263 lbs.

    Nba is all about mismatches ... If we are able to hide demar defensively Anderson can for sure be hidden and I don't even think he is unsafe able he lead the team in steals

    If you get that 37 or even 20th. That's a good draft. Ppl need to realize where we're picking.

    Glen Robinson III looking like a good fit at 20th. Measure out to 6'7" 6-10 wingspan 41.5 vertical only 211bls but already looks bigger than Ross and Dd. Showed at the combine he can make open shots. Smart player knows how to play without the ball.

    Love what he said about being punked. Tough kid. Casey needs his enforcer!
