Dyin' for Zion

Recommended Posts

The Cavaliers now have the worst record in the NBA.....well...alrighty then.   This tactic has worked for them before.  They ended up with  4 #1 overall picks since  2000:   LeBron, Kyrie,  Andrew Wiggins, and somebody Bennet (was it Anthony?   He played as well as singer Tony Bennett).

But now, all the hype is that the next best thing since LeBron may be coming up in next year's draft.  This guy Zion Williamson, freshman from Duke...who could be the next best thing since LeBron:

LeBron is in semi-retirement.    Dumping JR and now Korver shows that the Cavs are going for the #1 pick.

There is nothing else to play for. They should try for the 1st pick.

That too.  I wonder who they will get to coach this team next year? 

Gilbert isn’t the greatest owner to work for as a head coach

I don't watch much NCCA basketball, but is zion much of a shooter? Seems to me he's a different kind of player than LeBron...not that long stretch 3 nigga but more a legit 4 like Blake Griffin, but with better dribbles than Blake.

you draft zion IF you can put an elite PG behind him, who can also score, and a legit center that can take the heavy lifting off him. If you draft him only to make him do ALL the paint work...it isn't going to work. I would wait to see where the Cavs will pick, and if they get the 1...trade Kevin for those pieces you can put around zion.

Zion’s working on his jumper, it has potential for sure, but isn’t polished. He’s like Lebron from a physical aspect. But a more tankier left handed version of LBJ. Beast in the paint.

Collin Sexton is starting to look like the PG of the future. He’s only 20 and is having a solid rookie campaign. The other night I was able to watch them play the Heat(shot 11-17 with 27 points 6 assists). His floater was beautiful. He hit about 5 of them in a row over shot blockers. He was flashing some range, knocking down some 3s as well. 

 

Cam Reddish is really growing on me, a 6’8” small forward who can shoot and get to the basket and score...
