    2020 Official Draft Thread

    I'd rather draft at 15 or move up to a better pick. We need a solid young play maker and scorer.

    Maybe they like the age, 3 and D of Divin versus the players available at 15. It has been said to be a weak draft class.

    I think there is a good chance we move up in the draft

    2020 Official Playoffs Thread

    I lost a lot of respect for Labron after his attitude after the magic bet him in 2009. He just cries too much for me. Another example was with his words after him losing the MVP this year. He just cries too much.

    Our biggest issue has been player development and injuries. With the injury to JI, we have 0 to show for our draft picks from the new regime. we have swung and missed too much. Even when adding players that would cause a log jam, because people thought they were the best talent. I am still waiting to see the value of players drafted. It means a lot that you only have wes to show for our playoff run. We just have too do much better. sometimes player fit makes a big difference for players producing and developing. If you draft like players because another player has a better ceiling, it may mean you have to trade so you give the higher ceiling player time to play. We have started to show a culture of winning with players that can defend multiple positions, low turnovers, limiting second chances, player length, and unselfish offense. It is not really a culture thing, we just are lacking on talent. We have wasted too many picks and now it has caught up to us. At this moment, vuch should be easy traded, because we added a 6th pick center that had a higher ceiling (2 years ago), but because we swung and missed, it is hard to make a move, because Mo Bomba is not showing promise. I personally see an issue with our draft choices. Most of the players producing, were inherited. I need to see what okeke does and what we add this year, because was I am seeing now is a bad trend so far. (I do love JI but lord God, he can not stay healthy.)

    He just doesn't play with enough energy, so it looks really bad.

    I understand. There are a lot of people that hate the buddy ball between him and vuch... Even though it seems to be one of our better go to plays...

    sad to say, but i think Evan gets 20 mil or higher from a team next year. If so, he is gone....

    mo is not healthy, so he is slow on rotations. He is not moving good.

    Fultz could do things similar to doncic if he was given the ball and usage that doncic gets. Doncic has an offense built around him. Fultz is like the 4 option on a team that should have him, at worse, 2nd option. Fultz is a top 5 guard finishing around the rim and he is a very good passer. He could make fournier more efficient. IMO
  20. (With my best Kevin Heart Voice, but dead serious.) Fultz let us reason... You are too good of a player. I rather you go 1 for 15 shooting. Shooting every open shot you get, than for you to pass up another open shot... The next time Trae Young or any player stands at the free throw line, about 5 feet away, your better pull that freakin trigger, or if I'm the coach, I am benching you. Don't let people disrespect you like that... You are a pro Fultz. You are too hard of a worker. You need to trust your game. You hear me. Remember you said kill everyone. Not me. Show them 23.2 ppg, .41% 3p%, 47% fg%. Dont piss me off. Kill everyone. Remember, who you are. Number one pick in the draft... straight up baller. You have been shooting your whole life. Dont play with me. I am not a pro - nowhere near one. I did not play in college. I did not train all summer. I did not work with shooting coaches. I did not put the work in you did. I did not harbor, for 2 years all the doubters and naysayers. But you know what, I am taking that open shot. I am making that open that shot, because that is what I do. And, IF I miss and I am open again. Smoke and fire, I am gunning. I promise you that, why, because I am freakin open. I am gunning all day long and I wish a n@#$%a would say something. Especially in pre freakin season. What in the hell are you doing Fultz? It is preseason. Get your rhyme. Jake up shots. (Particularly, after you initiated the offense and the ball swings your way again.) YOU BETTER take that shot - hands down... man down... Kill everyone.... Fultz. I need you to trust your work. I need you to trust the countless shoots you have taken. I need you to be a little selfish during preseason, because in the long run, it is better for the team. If you start hitting your shot. There is no stopping us in the east. The Pacers, the Heat, the Pistons, the clawless Raptors, and the Durantless Nets, can all kick rocks and go home this spring. But it starts now... today.... Not tomorrow... not next year.... right the HELL now.... With your shot. One shot at a time, one game at time, one minute at a time. I have faith in you... You are too dang good. Now if you go 1 for 50... Do not ever take another shot in your life, BUT I bet you hit more than that today. You have my permission in the PRESEASON to gun.... You can tell the coach, I gave you permission. Now go be Magic.... We watchin...

    Fultz: Heart to Heart

    Game 50: Cleveland: Pure Magic (Pros): Fultz has been playing well on offense. He is taking great shots and playing with in his self. He hit 3 perimeter shots. He was 1 for 1 from three. The 3 pointer was also at a key point in the 4th quarter. He did a great job pushing the ball. The first half seem a little better, it terms of pushing the pace. The second half seemed slower from fultz, but I think it was more about milking the clock for the win. Disenchantment (Cons): I noticed that fultz, at times, passes to players in spots that they can not do much with the ball. This game, he had a few turnovers and got 4 fouls.

    Fultz: Heart to Heart

    Game 49: Detroit: Pure Magic (Pros): Fultz and Ross were the only players making shots. When a player is shooting and hitting 58% of their shots. It is a good thing. He scored 16 points and was 7-12 from the field. Disenchantment (Cons): This was one of the games when I noticed that Fultz was -13 in plus minus. (This was mostly because other players could not hit shots.) Fultz was also 0 - 2 from 3.
