    You know what you need for assists to count too? Guys who can shoot. Again, I don’t hate Black. I’m sitting here right now wondering how do we get better? You can sit here and keep hoping x y player gets better after 4-5 years in or you get real with yourself and get aggressive. Right now that’s what we should be doing. You should not kick the can done the road when Paolo is 25 . You should be building right now. Acquiring talent to get there. Not recycling players with the same skill set hoping they turn into something different.

    Not for Weham. I’m starting to see a pattern with them.

    I said trade out of it.

    My first option was to use 6 and 11 to trade out of it. I didn’t like anyone who was slotted at the 6th spot for us.

    That’s what I would’ve done. Those picks are more valuable before the draft than after. That was the time to be aggressive. Instead Weham uses the same logic behind drafting Bamba. Difference is Vuch had more value as a 7 footer who could stretch out the floor, rebound, play adequate enough defense and was an all star. Fultz has no value (outside of being an expiring which gets you others dead weight) as he is a lower tier PG who isn’t even in the top 20 that hesitates to shoot high volumes of threes.

    I don’t hate Black the player. I hate our decision making and how we are constructing our roster. We finally got a number one pick and a possible all star in Paolo. So what do we do? We use our best assets to duplicate talent with same weaknesses as what we already have. This feels like the Bamba draft except worse because Vuch had value. Does Weham need another two years to evaluate like he did when he got here? Just don’t think they can build a winning team.

    Lol this is my point. Our lineup is what it was last year. We used our best asset to duplicate? Are we content with being a treadmill team? Are we just going to do this over and over again until some years from now we get the number 1 pick again and Paolo is wanting out because we didn’t move the needle at all?

    I wouldn’t pick him at 6 but since you brought him up. He shot a better percentage the Black. Plus his size. His shot also has looks way better than Blacks and has more lift. I wouldn’t like it at 6 but I could at least see something other what we got now.

    Because our best assets, was the 6 and 11 picks. They are now gone. Our weakness, which keeps us from going to the next level, is still our weakness minus the best assets we had. We used our best asset on a guy who shares that same weakness.

    Here’s my thing. Black is a fine player. Plays defense, makes passes, good glue guy off the bench rn imo. Look at our backcourt...Fultz, Cole, Suggs and now Black with Gary Harris as our lone true starting 2 guard who outside of hitting a wide open three, is atrocious at pretty much everything else. Our backcourt was one of the worst offensively. It still is. It’s a weak FA class this year. Next year’s draft is horrible. This draft for me was the last kick at the tires to bring in that last piece. I feel we failed in that regard. IMO we just prolonged the rebuild another year or two with this draft and it irks me.

    That’s what I’m wondering/concerned with. We didn’t get our guy.

    Yeah this is my feelings as well. I just don’t see a lead pg with him.

    I would be jumping for joy if I saw the passing that Penny had. I’m not seeing with Black. At least in any of the clips I’ve seen.

    Yeah but I got evidence that’s not always the case.

    Hair doesn’t bother me. Him being a EP/MCW clone on the court is what frustrates me.

    Nothing but defensive plays and basic passes.

    Nothing pops out with this kid. I hear IQ. Dude made simple ass plays and had some piss poor turnovers. Only thing I can think of is they couldn’t get a deal done for Scoot abs who was left got drafted before they picked and just said F it.

    He already commented that he isn’t cuttimg it. Just like EP said once.

    I tried everything I could to like the kid’s game. Nothing. Nada. Defensively sure but that’s what we got with Suggs. I feel we got MCW with EP’s hair.

    Maybe. I just think you’re better off with Miller.
