When I look back on favorites of the 2015 draft.

If you'd told anyone (such as Mike@LG) that a team was going to have a young 3 going forward of D'Angelo Russell, Caris LeVert and Jahlil Okafor...


I say that considering how big a fan Mike was of LeVert as well.

If Caris can put it together then the Nets have a pretty solid team going forward in theory.

D'Angelo Russell
Allen Crabbe
DeMare Carrol
Rndae Hollis-Jefferson
Jahlil Okafor

Bench unit
Jeremy Lin
Caris LeVert



Not a bad start. For a team that had essentially no pick for the past 2 drafts.. they essentially just got the number 2 and 3rd best players of their respective drafts both with a high upside and scoring potential.

LeVert is another kid with solid upside as he puts it together. The question is "if" instead of "when" at this point considering his season thus far. But I think he will.

So we'll see. The Nets have done a good job recovering from their 'doom' which was hanging over them and seemed all but certain till we gift wrapped Russell to them.


don't forget the undrafted Dinwiddie, been solid


Precisely.

Also on top of that Russell and Okafor both wanted to be Lakers extremely badly. Russell got sent away just before he was going to break out and Okafor wasn't drafted by them. So you got two of the three in their core now that were snubbed by the Lakers (including now when Okafor was available for essentially nothing) and are going to have vendettas when they play us X_X If you add Lin to that list once he gets back as a 6th man that'd make another one..

That's ... just great

Just for the heck of it I'm going to make up a lineup where the Lakers kept Lin on as their long term 6th man, didn't trade D'Lo and just got Okafor, Stauskas and a 2nd round pick for Larry Nance Jr.(whom imo holds a similar value to Trevor Booker)


Lonzo Ball
D'Angelo Russell
Brandon Ingram
Julius Randle
Jahlil Okafor

Bench:
Jeremy Lin
Jordan Clarkson / Nik Stauskas
Kyle Kuzma / Corey Brewer
Luol Deng / Thomas Bryant
Ivica Zubac

Its a NY thing now. Your got Porzingis in NY, Okafor and DLo in Brooklyn. They are joining forces and they still wont be close to him.
Gosh I remember how badly I wanted Porzingis and everyone here was telling me he sucks, hes going to be a bust etc, everyone wanted Okafor or DLo. Well Porzingis is muuuuuuch muuuuuch muuuch muuuch better than both.

But LaMelo is going to be much better than Ponzi

Nets ended up getting the 2nd and 3rd pick of the 2015 draft. Not bad Brooklyn.

Any roster with Okafor penciled in as the starting C is going to struggle to win games in today's NBA, if this is the same guy we've seen the past few years, unless you're only playing him 20 minutes or less. And even then, that's 20 minutes where you literally have no defensive resistance on the floor from your big man.

I got pissed when earlier today when I saw mock line ups for the Sixers (screw them) on LG. I was going to sarcastically say, "Who's next, the Nets?" Sure enough Okafor is about to be traded there and now I'm treated to reading possible Nets line ups too!

Let's make mock line ups for the Wolves tomorrow morning followed by the Bulls. We'll start with just the young teams and go on from there. 😜

Actually you might be on to something there. The Wolves could make a sign and trade deal with the Cavs to land LeBron and their lineup could look like:

Teague
Wiggins
Lebron
Gibson
KAT

not bad :O

I don't see Okafor being anything more than a bench scorer on the Nets. Jarrett Allen is their future C. Amazing upside defensively.

We discuss most trades in FA thread so....

To be honest, if there was a young team I'd make a mock line up for (besides the Lakers), it would be Boston. They have enough trade assets to be as good as they want to be.

We fight off the Sixers and Cavs for him though so this will not be easy, and also not to mention who is in front of us in the west.

We learned two things today. Lebron bought a $23M mansion in LA and the Lakers beat Philly. The answer is pretty clear. haha

We have to keep Jules. Just play him at “center.” Bring in a few big bodies to help him with the huge guys.
