To say the ABC coverage milked that meme would be an understatement.

There was more effort to cover his faux-outrage than there was actual player analysis, borderline unwatchable.

I wouldn't pretend to know better, but apparently we were pretty happy to pick up Liddell at 41.

Got linked a lot with Daniels too, so a bit of luck there as well.

I watched a few vids on him early on but it was pretty evident he was more PF than SF so I stopped but he seemed like a late teens/early 20's guy, put up big stats, shot blocker and can shoot well for a PF

Portland drafted Sharpe purely on potential, not sure how you can draft a guy that hasnt played since high school over another guy same age who did better in the G league than Jalen green and Kuminga the year before

Yeah he has an odd package of skills. From what I've learned we'll have to hope the newly-discovered shooting form holds, but his numbers looked really good.

According to Trajan Langdon we knew Portland liked Daniels as well at 7, so it was probably a coin flip.

Shooting is the big question mark. Time for our shot doctor, Fred Vinson, to earn his pay cheque.

I read somewhere he shot a lot better late in the season and his overall shooting form doesnt look bad... and ofc there was that draft combine vid where he was swishing everything

Wolves subreddit was a funny read. Melted at not taking Liddell at 19. Then melted at not taking him at 22. Then at 26. When we passed on him at 40 they started to get the message.

Going to be very interesting to see what happens with the Nets this off season.
KDs tarnishing his career big time imo. He can say he doesnt care what people think, he has burner accounts defending himself to prove otherwise. He cares alot but he constantly makes bitch moves as soon as things get difficult. Great player but god level twat

Also says a bit about what players think of Simmons people seemingly leaving already. Just hoping Knicks arent dumb enough to give 4 years to Kyrie

I love Ant but send Ant, Sharpe, Nas, Blevins and every first for KD.

Says nothing about Simmons

Kyrie wants to come back, the Nets are just wanting protection on the contract.

KD as far as I know is only looking to movie if Kyrie walks.

Think both are happy to run it back with a healthy Simmons

I think that gets out bid to be honest, the Nets are only moving KD on for a package that keeps them good, Houston having those picks over the next 5 years means the Nets can’t bottom out

I think the writing is in the wall that Kyrie and the Nets is over. Kyrie may not even get a choice, they may just want to wash their hands of him.

Kyrie is not an asset.

Possibly but I strongly doubt it, they lose Kyrie and they lose KD. They lose KD and they are screwed for the next 10 years.

I think they are more likely to cave and give Kyrie what he wants

Ironically if the Nets do just blow it up they're in the exact same position again as they were after the horrible Celtics trade.

If they blow it up its one of the biggest fails ever unless they somehow get an absolute bounty for Durant. They have no draft picks, Dinwiddie, Allen, Levert. They would have gone all in for 2 years of playoffs

And it is why it is more likely they cave and give Kyrie what he wants, as much of a head case as he is it is better than the alternative.

Also if Kyrie leaves and KD demands a trade, he won't be going for picks because the Nets need to remain competitive. A decent asset will need to be going back.
