    Luka will be a BALLER... First year getting tutored by Dirk will help him adapt, looking up on LBJ pretty sure he will get a lot of advice from him, plus he is in a team that wants to win rather than just stay mediocre and a succesfull franchise and will be the playmaker but wont be that pressured to score since they got dennis smith jr

    Whenever I see a big man talking about players that they study and they dont mention Hakeem "The Dream" Olajuwon I just get disapointed man... should be MANDATORY to watch and learn from every aspect of his game

    The fuck. I can't believe the Hawks passed on Luka but Trae's a beast though but c'mon man. And the Mavs not drafting Bamba and getting another point guard, I don't but that thing that they will be great backcourt duo bruh.

  • GodspeedGideon
    GodspeedGideon 25 days ago +23

    Hear it is guys, my personal opinion of their player's comp:
    *Luka* - A taller and better, shooting formed, Manu Ginobli with deceptive athleticism similar to Gordon Hayward coming out of college.
    *Bamba* - a 3pt shooting Rudy Gobert, who most likely will have a better offensive game, especially the shooting aspect.
    *Ayton* - If Patrick Ewing and Joel Embiid had a baby
    *Miles Bridges* - Jae Crowder or Better shooting Justise Winslow
    *Jaren Jackson Jr.* - A better perimeter defending Serge Ibaka that can guard 1-5 (Well... some of the 1s in this league)
    *Marvin Bagley III* - Kevin Garnett's motor, Tristan Thompson's relentlessness on the offensive boards, but in Bagley's case... BOTH offense and defense boards, and any bigs in the league who easily average 20&10.
    *Michael Porter Jr.* - Kevin Durant (The Greg Oden version)

    • GodspeedGideon
      GodspeedGideon 24 days ago

      LigerHD The only similarities to Simmons and Lebron is the Point Forward and Playmaking aspects. Unlike Simmons and Lebron, Luka is crafty like Nash/Ginobli, Luka has crazy good shooting form and most likely be labeled as a shooter as well as playmaker(Well, these couple of years, one can argue that Lebron is shooter as well lol), and Unlike Luka, Simmons and Lebron use their build to bulldoze their way to the rim make them, what I call, "Bully Finishers"... Luka doesn't do that, he's more of a crafty finisher using angles and tricking the timing of the potential blockers.

    Feel sad for Mikal Bridges he looked excited and ecstatic to be a 76er only to get traded 40 minutes later, I knew something like this would happen though 76ers weren't to big in this year's draft not many players can add to this 76ers team other than depth this proves they will be going all out for LeBron.

      All of the guys who keep saying LeBron would slow simmons and embiid growth is stupid and shouldn't be allowed to comment anything about basketball. Everybody saying Simmons is the next LeBron why not learn from LeBron himself. Only thing thatis slowing simmons growth is himself by not getting a jumper

      Nah this was a stupid move by them. Mikal is a 3 & D player. He would have been a good back up shooting guard. I think 76ers would be stupid to go all out for Lebron. It will slow Ben's & Embiid's development.
