    Default Everything Jakob Poeltl

    The Toronto Raptors Picked Jakob Poeltl with the 9th pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

    There are not many 7' footers who can run the floor like he does ... He gets up and down the court very well, giving strong effort on every possession ... Often gets himself open just by out-hustling opposing bigmen ... He has an long, agile, and strong body, and enjoys contact and doesn’t back down from it ... His skill level is still very raw but he has big, soft hands, and knows how to use his large frame to get deep post position and present good angles ... Shows the ability to finish with both hands, and his soft touch gives his offensive game some real intrigue ... His ability to finish around the rim allowed him to shoot with very high efficiency numbers from the field this year ... Another very intriguing aspect of his skillset is how well he moves his feet on defense ... He shows great coordination and can really show hard on the pick and roll without getting beat easily by guards ... He plays really hard every minute on the floor, has a good motor and seems to understand his limitations ...

    He can but I feel he's more suited to play Center

    Been super busy at my new job so can't really post here anymore, but just logged in due to massive rage.

    This pick fucking sucks.

    You don't waste the 9th overall pick on a career backup at best. Even if he's really good, we just signed JV, our near All Star young center to a huge new deal. Poeltl will never start on this team. He can't play PF. He's 7'1 and only has range out to 7 feet or so. Not to mention, we already have a backup C in Bebe, and our backup C won't be expected to play more than 15 minutes per game. This pick makes no fucking sense AT ALL.

    Sabonis, Davis, Luwawu, Ellenson, Prince, Valentine, even Skal, who I don't like, would have been a way better pick.

    Only hope is this leads to a trade, because C was the position of least need on this team.

    This is usually my position. I was able to talk myself into every player in the draft thread ... except this one.

    I badly badly want to be wrong.

    I guess the organization either thinks biz will not be back, Jv will be traded, bebe really sucks and isnt a capable backup, or all of the above

    Smh. Terrible pick considering we already have 2 good young centres
    I'm back. I no longer worship joe johnson
