    2022 NBA Draft Thread

    This information was posted on here literally less than 24 hours ago. I'm confused why the new conflicting information takes precedence over this information. Can someone explain?

    I have no clue why you quoted me there. I'm all for considering Sharpe, especially if we can trade down to 3-4 and pick up other players/draft picks in the process. He's probably 1 or 2 on my board for the Magic. I don't feel like we have enough data on any of these players to comfortably project how they'll do in the NBA. I was referring to the old days when players came into the league with 3-4 years of college ball under their belt. One year or less of college ball isn't enough of a sample size to project any of these guys.

    This draft reminds me so much of 2013. All the back and forth about Nerlens Noel, Ben McLemore, etc., when both ended up falling. I really hope we don't end up with what amounts to an Anthony Bennett. I don't know about you, but I sure miss the old days when players came into the draft with several years of college experience so you had a much better handle of what you were getting.

    I get wanting to look beyond the 3 bigs, as bigs are usually overvalued in drafts: "So … do you want to pick from the bin that provided 27 All-Stars or the bin that gave us three?" https://theathletic.com/3317217/2022/05/18/nba-draft-2022-top-20-prospects/ I'm just curious why all the love for picking a non-big seems to be for Sharpe and no one seems to want Ivey?

    Sharpe gives me "the attitude of Ben Simmons" vibes

    This depressing reminder popped up on my FB feed the other day. "The Miami Heat have barely anyone drafted in the lottery and yet they are always good. Meanwhile, the Orlando Magic get lottery picks every year and are always bad." To be fair, most of the high picks on our team are very young while the Heat players are mostly established vets, and they do have a few 1st rounders (e.g., Herro), but this point illustrates that maybe it's time to stop thinking continually about trading away our young, promising talent for more high picks and instead worry more about maximizing the potential and development of the talent we have?

    Surprised Franklin's still on the board. And we still have a shot at Ledo.

    Man, Boston just entered full on tank mode. Now we have to battle them for Wiggins.

    I wouldn't even mind if Noel developed into a Dikembe clone, which is what I see him closest to at the moment.

    Alright, I'm finally sold on Oladipo. At least he'd be fun to watch with all the energy he brings to the table. I think he's furthest along of the bunch at addressing his biggest weakness and has a strong work ethic with the strides he made this year. I feel like we'll be throwing back to the Heart and Hustle days.

    Is anyone else wondering if this is the worst draft since we drafted Mike Miller?

    I'd now kinda leaning towards trying to get Noel at 2, and Ledo later in the first round if we can buy a pick.
