    2020 NBA Draft Thread

    The latest Mock Drafts I see are split between Anthony Edwards and LaMelo Ball at the Top. Naji checks in as the last person selected. Thoughts?

    "He's a little bit ball-dominant, he needs to have the ball in his hands, and he's not a good shooter." Ball-dominant isn't that a nice way of calling someone a ball hog? Where is my Jay Bilas Thesaurus?

    I hate to say it but Obi looks solid. My Cavaliers are at 5 and the top of this draft looks like poop. I would take a 3 and D wing type. Obi, Devin Vassell, Patrick Williams... draw a name out of a hat.

    For X guys, I really think Naji would be worth a look if I am a solid organization looking to develop talent. Spurs come to mind as a good match based on nothing other than historic bias with Kawhi. Probably not a good comp since Kawhi is a freak but young Kawhi is how I envision Naji - 3 and D glue guy.

    I'm kind of surprised to not see Markus Howard here. If they're listing some guys like Mannon or Powell, Howard has to be considered. I know he's short, but man that did not stop him from destroying some teams.

    Agree...Offensively he is a great so I think that should get him drafted. Defensively it’s an uphill battle for him, but that shouldn’t make him undraftable. I could see him going to Golden State with one of their late 2nd rounders (52ish?). Mini Curry.
