    Wiggins and aubre has to step up to help curry with draymond for the defensive and leading the young bloods to do best, absent of klay is hurting the warriors and the only hope is to add energy and eliminate mistakes, forget the last two games make sure to win the next one

    Either way the Warriors are great at pickin em and developing em. They like that guy uk that's always buying shitty houses and cars that have good bones, then fixing em up and flippin em for 10x what they payed. I think Wiseman can be a great addition, but if not they'll make em the best he can be and trade him for someone they really need. I never doubt this organization.

    Stephen A... Jay ain't like u and Max, u only needed to say Jay once and he was listening. Lmao, dude says Jay like 10x while he's already silent (and i am taking into account the slight signal delay). Dudes so used to communicating that way at this point that he thinks that's just how everyone does it now.

    One clown says he and Draymond are similar players. The other one says DeAndre Jordan. Did they ever see him play? At all? He has a better offensive skillset and more tools (offensively) than both of those guys right NOW. Through two games it's safe to say he can stroke the three ball. I knew that already. Wondering if these two are talking just to hear themselves talk....

    The Warriors never had a legit Center. Like the Chicago Bulls never had a talent like Wiseman. It’s only a question of how fast Wiseman develops. You don’t get better by not selecting a seven foot freak athlete. Klay Thompson’s availability doesn’t change Wiseman’s value. Quite frankly, it only enhances it. Few teams will be able to single him in the paint. Double Wiseman and get murdered by Steph.

    The sad thing is there not any James Wiseman highlights and game play videos for people see how talented he is! He might be a big man but he's going shock people how much of a well rounded game he has! This why he was the projected number 1 pick! Great fit for the warriors who needed that guy!

    I really doubt these guys even watch the games. Wiseman is an athletic big man who can shoot and run the floor. He isn’t one of these traditional low post centers. Wiseman is more of a Kevin Garnett type than he is Deandre Jordan.

    Why do they say Wiseman cannot shoot. He is so young. Nobody really knows for sure. But a big man who moves well sounds good to me. And by the way he averaged 19 points in 23 minutes at college. Sounds like he can shoot to me.

    Raymond and Wiseman are not similar. GS has lacked a low post presence for years. most teams don't have decent centers that can rule the block. Wiseman opens the court for Steph. Wiseman scored 23 pts in college playing 20 mins. have you seen Wiseman? he's a beast with an animal mentality. and he can run the floor as well. best puck they could have chosen. Wiseman to me is the best player in the draft. period.

  • Kisembe Namusyule

    Should’ve drafted LaMelo. He could’ve allowed Steph to play combo guard/shooting guard. They could’ve traded Draymond since he isn’t the defender he once was and his playmaking ability is lacking when GSW doesn’t have the overwhelming talent advantage. Steph, Wiggins, LaMelo and some shooters gets you the 6th or 7th seed. You tread water until Klay comes back in 2022. While developing LaMelo for the future under Steph Curry. Idk how that wasn’t on people’s mind even with Klay healthy. It’s not like rebounding mattered to the warriors before. Even when they lost to Toronto. Toronto had mor offensive fire power with Kawhi, Vanvleet, Lowry, Siakim, Green, Gasol, Ibaka. It was raining 3’s. I saw numerous draft comparisons for Wiseman to Deandre Jordan. That is not who I want the Number 2 overall pick to become. Now if Wiseman could be Deandre Ayton then that’s a different story.

    Max and jay not taking defense into consideration. Steph is the greatest shooter ever so with dray or wiseman setting the pick n roll will be lethal. Also last year was wiggins first year there and he was learning on the go so I expect him to be much better with chemistry. Oubre, wiggins might not be great shooters but what they do is excel at using their athleticism to drive to the rim. The nba isn't all about 3s to win games! Loom at the Lakers. They had danny green and thats it! It's all about volume shots and Steph and dray know how to get guys open. Defensively they should be top 5

    Comments from Jay Williams is indicative of how limited his knowledge is of Wiseman. Reminder, Wiseman played as the #1 Player in HS since the end of his junior year in HS. NBA scouts detail the top 10-15 HS players each year because of their NBA readiness within 10-12 months of their draft eligibility

    TROY L SIMELTONMuaj më parë

    Bogut was the number pick #1 overall in 2005. With the Bucks, Bogut never made consistent shots beyond 10-12 feet. Jay Williams was not accurate about Bogut's ability to " stretch" the floor.

    Wiseman can shoot better than these dudes know! They haven't seen him enough,so they don't actually know. You have to look at his high school footage to see he has a nice shooting stroke,and he has pretty decent range from 18 ft on in...He can also nail the occasional 3 ptr as well. He'll be much better than they think once the speed of the game slows down for him.
