    Ya I like Acy but more for the 52nd pick. He will be a huge energy guy. He is a super dunker.

    Wait and see. You'll see. He's going to be good.

    Have seen the Comparison to Eddie Jones, and I like that alot.
    Not to mention, Jones was an All-Star, and SOLID scorer for a long time.

    Furkan Aldemir? Kim English? Both would be nice picks with 56.

    Here's BC explaining himself.

    I'm mainly concerned about Ross's pencil body.

    Ya I trust them on the Ross pick. I didn't like it at the time, but I really wanted Barnes. After he was gone there was no one I really wanted. Trading back would have been a option for this pick though

    I do like Acy because he's a thug, but the selection doesn't make much sense unless either Ed or Amir is dealt.

    I mean it's not the worst pick, I guess. I was just thinking that he would be a pick at 16 or something, you know, had we traded for Lowry!

    I want him to be successful, trust me.

    That's the nbadraft.net comparison. I don't trust nbadraft.net. ANd jones was more of a SG. ALmost makes Demar redundant.

    Ross is more of a SG as well.

    And I've seen and heard comparison elsewhere as well. Will try and find a link.

    I thought the wtf pick belonged to Cleveland, then the Raps picked

    Something I mentioned in another thread

    Can't fault the raps henchmen for this one. From day one of the exit interviews last year, they were saying "we need a shooter. We need shooters". If there was a drinking game for that word, we would have spent the whole spring hammered. They picked a shooter. I never was good at listening.

    We apparently picked the wrong Terrence AND the wrong Quincy...

    Ross has great handles, can shoot the ball with the best of them, is 6'6"/6'7" and is a supreme athlete. Not sure what people are upset about ... but ah well.

    Interesting to note that BC thinks Ross is a SG. Wonder what's up for the starting SF job?

    We may get Scott Machado at 56 ... but if he's available that may be too predictable
