    I mean I see your point, there were alot of anti-Trae people.... but I think we also have to mention that the Magic were trying hard to trade up for Doncic and not Trae. We came with an offer to move up, which means Hawks would have gotten Trae at 6 with our pick and Mavs taken Bamba at 5. I don't know if Mavs had the better offer or if the Hawks just didn't want to trade with a division rival, but the Mavs got the deal and we didn't. Magic lost out on Luka and Trae went to Hawks at 5. There is an alternate universe were the Magic have a core of Doncic, Dipo, Issac, Sabonis, Porzingis/Vucevic.

    Chicago Bulls Draft Pick Watch

    Tough schedule ahead for the Bulls, but I'm getting nervous.The Bulls own the tie-breakers against the Hornets, Pacers and Wizards. All three of those teams could almost lose out. It's a longshot that the Bulls win the next four, but I would not be shocked if they get into the play-in and win both games to be the 8th seed. In that scenario we'd get the #15 pick. :(

    Can I get a drink for all my efforts! ;-p The reality is that of the list of TOP5 lottery players taken in the last ten years, only two of them have won rings and they both played with this Lebron James guy to get them. I'd even eliminate Bradley Beal as his playoffs were more John Wall's accomplishments before Wall got to liking the Chicken Wings at Nando's more then playing in the NBA. Oladipo got the Pacers to the playoffs in year 1, but they proved they could do it without him. So, if we update on the taking a Team to the playoffs and being drafted in the Top 5 here are your players. About 1 per draft class. Bold Teams, mean they are still with that team. 2011 NBA DRAFT 1.) Kyrie Irving (CAVS) - NBA Champion w/ CAVS, 2012 NBA DRAFT 1.) Anthony Davis (Pelicans/Hornets) NBA Champion w/ Lakers 2013 NBA DRAFT (WORST DRAFT EVER?) 2.) Victor Oladipo (MAGIC) - Took Pacers to playoffs 2014 NBA DRAFT 3.) Joel Embiid (76ers) -(Playoffs 3 times, never advanced beyond 2nd round) 2015 NBA DRAFT- 1.) Karl Anthony-Towns (WOLVES) - (1 playoff 1st round exit) 2.) D'Angelo Russell (Lakers) -(Took Nets to playoffs) 2016 NBA DRAFT- 1.) Ben Simmons - (76ers) - (76ers 3 playoffs, never advanced beyond 2nd round) 2017 NBA DRAFT- 3.) Jason Tatum (CELTICS) - ( 3 playoffs, 2 ECF Runnerups) 2018 NBA DRAFT- 3.) Luka Doncic (Mavs) - (1 playoff 1st round exit) 2019 NBA DRAFT- 2.) Ja Morant (Grizzlies) - Lost play-in game

    I love me some Jon Issac. He's KG with a mohawk!!! Great flashes from RJ and Cole and Chuma so far. Let WCJr and Mo battle it out in training camp. The guy that stays healthy win the starting job. Fultz was a feel good story, but Cole and RJ's play has me feeling like he could be the odd man out and we probably won't miss him.

    So bottom line for a chance at a Top 4 percentage we need to lose out.

    Okay, I'm just going to come out and say it. Cole Anthony is almost better in his rookie year then Markelle now! Kelle is a better defender and more explosive, but the gap is closing. I'm getting the feeling Cole Anthony will be the permanent starter at some point next year and Markelle may be traded or waived. I'd even be up for taking Suggs for our pick if Cunningham is off the board.
  8. What the Bamba! How did we catch up?
  9. I feel like the front office outsmarted Cliff at the deadline. They knew he would continue to play the vet hand after blowing up the team so they surrounded him injured players and kept the garbage role players that barely belong in the NBA. A few more of these losses with Ennis, MCW and Bacon and he'll have no choice, but to give more minutes to RJ and Cole. I expect Big Cliff to walk off the team by the end of the month ala Skiles. Chuma and WCJ look like they legit and should stay in starting lineup when Issac and Fultz return next season.

    As we saw the last couple nights, WCJ is going to be a solid addition. Birch should not be the starter going forward. ...But I think this officially pushes Bamba to 3rd and his minutes will start to decrease from here. It's a shame, he's never been able to get out of Cliff's dog house. We will either trade him or decline a qualifying offer.

    2021 Trade Deadline Thread

    Weham definitely does not know how to cash in when value is high. Fournier has gotten offers for FRP's, Elf Payton had a FRP offer the year they took over and they held on to him and dumped for a 2nd. AG had bigger return a couple years ago. Vuc probably would have gotten more if it was at seasons end. I'm glad we got what we did. The big key is the young guys Carter,Bamba, Hampton, Chuma all get a chance to develop and we now commit to Issac, Fultz and hopefully Cade as the future while getting a ton of cap flexibility to build around them.

    2021 Trade Deadline Thread

    I love this deadline. Let the tank begin!!! We finally get rid of buddy ball and set ourselves up Big for next year, hopefull w/ Cade. Just imagine Issac now being a top scoring option on this team and the DPOY! 2021-22 lineup w/ Cade: PG Markelle Fultz (All Star), Cole Anthony , RJ Hampton SG Cade Cunningham (Superstar), Gary Harris (Expiring), MCW SF Terrence Ross, (Josh Christopher or Zaire Williams w/ Bulls mid-1st rounder), Otto Porter on friendlier deal. PF Jon Issac (Superstar), Chuma Okeke C Wendell Carter Jr, Mo Bamba Maybe team can even get Otto to come back for Terrence Ross like contract. Cade makes any team look great, but having Kell and Issac healthy really changes the outlook.
