Getting a solid rotation guy with the 30th pick is a big win.

This guy is CRAZY strong. And does everything with force and conviction.
Just look at the way he rebounds the ball, there is no messing around, going up strong with two hands securing the ball.

When he attacks the rim in transition, defenders are bouncing off of him.
And he actually has good control to finish. I mean, a guy like Artest was incredibly strong but in transition there was no guarantee it wouldn't end up in the crowd


I love Hart's layups aesthetically, it's that combination of strength and balance that always makes him look so in control. It's a forceful glide..

In the NBA the defenders at the rim are so long that a relatively smaller guy like Hart with unextraordinary wingspan will still get blocked and bothered at the rim on occasion, but love seeing him make do with what he has. In contrast, watching Lonzo and KCP get into the paint gives me anxiety.

Josh is shooting .364 from 3 so far. For a rookie that is great. Consider in the 6 years of Clarkson and Russell neither ever got higher than .352.

Nance and Hart are two guys I'd love to have on the roster for years to come

I think Nance can go, along with Clarkson and Pope and Lopez. Hart, though, is a pretty solid rotation player, potentially.

With the right players, with more experience, he could even be in the starting five...

Danny Green-esque? But less disastrous driving the ball?

If Hitman wasn't such a great nickname, I'd have called him DDP.

Is he playing golf?
I meant driving to the hoop. Brain fart.

Agreed. The era of the dumb, enticing player sorely needs to come to an end here. Not making mistakes is so underrated, and those two check the box.

Agreed. Every great team has players like Hart and Nance who are solid, don't make mistakes, don't dominate the ball and let the stars focus on putting the ball through the hoop.

Excellent role players- check

Need to work on the star player development some now!

or we could trade Josh Hart for Lou Williams.

I suspect Lou Williams will be exposed if the Clippers make the playoffs, this kind of players almost always does. It's quite possible Hart will be much more valuable in the near future, he's already a better defender as a rookie...
Don't count me in the "I regret players who used to play for us" crew, AKA the David Nwaba/Lou Williams crew...

and he's attempting a solid 4.3 per 36. He's a legit 3 and D player. He may be a starting caliber player in his prime.

If Thomas Bryant also works out, then this will have been a truly epic draft. Kuzma is a potential star, Hart a potential starter, Bryant a potential rotation player. Lonzo a potential superstar.

I wouldn't be surprised if a good chunk of LG could bench BI. That's not even 200 right? Lol

I doubt the vast majority of LG can put up 200.

Well, I know I couldn't do it, but I'm tiny (150 lbs tiny) and I think my ORM is fairly close. Then again, I underestimate the age of this place, so you're probably right
