sacramento should just move their team to las vegas or something. they're going to be irrelevant for the rest of their time in sacramento. they haven't made the playoffs in 16 fucking years and haven't won a championship since like 1950. plus LV already has an nhl and nfl team i believe, so to complete the collection, boom. relocate the irrelevant kings to las vegas. plus there would be much more appeal to LV cuz gambling and shit.

Okay, so ANT is probably #1. But I do think Tyrese is the best perimeter defender in that class outside of Okoro. He is also probably the 1st (or 2nd best passer after LaMelo. He reads pick n roll coverage magnificently, and has incredible burst of quickness. Haliburton is also maybe the best off-ball shooter in the class other than Bane.

So yeah I probably should’ve put ANT #1, but I don’t think Tyrese is behind by much.

Should I do something with the actual draft? I kinda didn't want to cause I know nothing about the prospects and no one, understandably, would give a fuck about a sim while the actual draft is happening.

Tony Parker had the most unstoppable floater I’ve ever seen. Maybe the quickest guard in the league at the time (other than Barbosa). Also won a FMVP while Duncan was still in his Prime. He’s a 4x champion and still the greatest Euro PG to ever play in the NBA

Nope, writing my own sim. Anons claimed their own teams in the last few days and I sim'd a few test games and seasons, but I'm still adding stuff. My plan is to sim a whole season using it during this next month so we can talk about stupid shit other than the off-season drama. Dunno, fun. Pick related are the current teams and there will be a draft by the end of the month. Not sure exactly when yet cause I'm still finishing stuff.

>>121466024
I meant related to the sim, but sure, redrafts are fun.

As anon mentioned, I wouldn't pick prime Parker over prime Gasol in that era. Nowadays? Maybe, in today's era, I think I would go with Arenas over both of them

>>121465027
LeBron should really consider load management. His body just can't handle playing the whole 82-game season anymore, especially if the team gets really deep into the playoffs.

>>121466102
As a Lakers fan, I love Gasol but I’ll let ou in on a secret. When accounting for defense, I don’t even think Pau is the best Gasol brother. Marc has a lot of the toughness Pau needed early on in his career. Also Marc did more with that Memphis organization. Nothing against Pau, but he’s incredibly fortunate to have been traded to my Lakies. Phil & Kobe turned him into the perfect low-post cog that made the machine work. But make no mistake about it. Derek Fisher’s return & Andrew Bynum’s emergence had just as much to do with the Lakies back2back chips.
>>
>>121466215
Your little narrative is fucking retarded and you being a Lakers fan makes it even more retarded, not less.
>>
>>121466102
Damn I don’t know how you programmed the stats but was gonna say there are fleshed out fan made accurate draft classes on the nba 2k games for this upcoming draft if that’s any help?

You can sim a season in the game and determine averages highs and lows for various players. Good luck regardless sounds fun
>>
>>121466102
where is hassan whiteside
>>
>>121466241
I lied about nothing. Not my fault that (you) can’t handle the truth. With Derek Fisher/Phil Jackson being absent from 2004-2006 squads, there was a huge hole in the spirit of my team. Kobe didn’t feel the need to do so much once they returned.

And people forget how good Bynum was for a couple years.
>>
>>121466215
Pau Gasol played alongside pretty bad players in a tough western conference when he was on the Grizzlies, I don’t think it’s fair to argue expansion franchise success (Jerry West taking the reigns of the Grizzlies and surrounding Marc Gasol with Conley, Allen, Randolph) which typically takes several years to establish is determined by one player. Especially when West being replaced with a bad GM (maxing Parsons out) just as quickly killed that era of Grizzlies ball

Pau Gasol is a first ballot Hall of Famer no less, it’s not at all coincidence Kobe had no .500 teams in his time without Pau and Shaq. It takes multiple great players to win in the NBA and downplaying Kobe’s sidekick that scored far more on way less shots, rebounded more and had an equivalent amount of assist while Kobe shot 20% from the field in Game 7, is
>>121466241
straight retarded. Kobe himself would tell you he doesn’t get those titles without Pau matching up with Garnett and Duncan.
>>
>>121466295
On top of that people forget that the Lakers made the Gasol trade AFTER it was announced Bynum would miss the rest of the season. I firmly believe if Bynum was healthy in the 2008 finals, The Lakers would’ve 3-peated.

Oh, totally agree with you. I actually think Marc is a more complete player, it's just that Pau was more unpredictable on offense, including his playmaking. Not underrating Marc's passing too, but, dunno, it's close. And yeah, Pau's Laker stint was amazing for him.

>>121466255
Hmm, I taking a TTRPG approach. Player have a 1~12 stat related for:
> Onball Offense
> Offball Offense
> Onball Defense
> Offball Defense
> Consistency
> Range
And during games they roll a 1d12 against each other, but there are a few caviats here and there in special situations were the defense is in disadvantage or the opposite. It helps that I actually already made something like this before, I'm just polishing it and allowing for more experimentation I guess.

The stats will change a bit though and tendencies will come in, both team and individual tendencies, and that's what is going to make things interesting in my eyes. Because right now players are simply rolling a die to determine which action they are gonna take (shooting, passing, dribbling) and then testing against it. But soon that will be totally different. I also intend to implement team plays and stuff which you guys will be able to recommend and stuff. I fully intend this to be a fun project that we can reuse in future years even if I'm not here anymore. When I finish it, I'll probably upload the code somewhere and let anyone use it.

About the NBA2K things, thanks, but some of my inspiration to make my own sim comes from my frustration with 2K stats lol But yeah, I do intend to give it at least a quick glance.

I sat behind Zion once on one of those tour buses in Durham that does the circuit around all the familiar haunted spots. I didn't realize it was Zion at first. I was getting comfortable in my seat and noticed the guy in front of me playing with the air vent. He was sticking a couple of his fingers between the slats and and turning it back and forth going "wreeee, wreeee, wreeee" while looking over and laughing at the person next to him, which I thought was kind of annoying. Eventually he pulls his fingers out and turns the thing on full blast before pointing it straight back into my face while mumbling something about "can't have that blowing on me or I'll catch a cold." Anyway the bus driver turns on the engine and tells us to fasten our seatbelts and this guy shouts back "aye, aye, captain" while simultaneously giving some kind of a salute and reclining his seat all the way back until it's resting on my knees. Then he twists his head around and gives me a smirk, and that's when I realize Zion Williamson is sitting in front of me. I say "Hey Z you mind giving me a little room?" but he immediately closes his eyes and starts doing that fake snoring thing. So we're driving along and all of a sudden Zion turns to the guy next to him and says "I spy a guy with a bus seat on his knees." I'm thinking that's not even how you play the game since he didn't even look at me, but I'm not going to complain. Eventually we get to Cameron Indoor and Zion gets up and says "this is my stop" before adding that "Ubers are too expensive in North Carolina,” and he just gets off. Didn't even unrecline the seat before he got up. His ass is just as thicc as it looks on tv though

At least 1 all star. The answer is ALWAYS all stars. No coach can turn you into winners if you dont have good enough players. Its a 5v5 game. Give the mavs rudy gobert and they win the championship
>>
>Chet
Some weird hybrid of Gobert’s rim protection, and young Porzingis (before the injuries/rape). Not as lucid as Durant was coming out, but Chet seems to be able to put the ball on the floor and pull-up off the dribble as well.
>Jabari
I really don’t know if this dude is Stanley Johnson or Kawhi Leonard. He’s a little taller at 6’9, so maybe the length makes him a more versatile player ultimately. Compared to previous top wings (Tatum, Ingram, Zion) he doesn’t compare in terms of offensive creation. Which leads me to
>Paolo
Underrated rebounder, and his defense in the Tourney was pretty good. I think he’s gonna average 19-25 ppg, but he needs to be great in other areas (Rebounds, rotational defense) in order to be truly great.

> Defense is where Jabari separates himself from the other offensive-minded 4s at the top of this draft. Although he’s not the same type of twitch athlete that Paolo Banchero is, his lower-body flexibility pays dividends in his ability to get in a stance and check a wide array of player types: lead guards, rangy wings, face-up 4s, and the occasional opportunity to pester a true 5.

https://www.theringer.com/platform/amp/2022/1/11/22876836/2022-nba-draft-jabari-smith-jr-auburn

His calling card is his defense and shooting. There’s a possibility for any player their skills do not translate against the best athletes in the world but based on his level of play and ceiling that’s a risk you take in a league that is dominated by positionless defense and the three pointer.

Also what prospect doesn’t have weaknesses in their game?

All the top guys have obvious flaws in their game, but Jabari literally shot 42% against college defense. He doesn't create for others. He's a looks good bad results player who has just as big of a bust factor as the other guys, but with them at least you know they dominated and were efficient in college at least which is the biggest factor that translates to the next level.

Holgrem does not have an NBA body and has a high center of gravity, players with body type typically degenerate in the NBA. Paolo Banchoro dominated against college defenses and shot 33% from three, is he going to be effective with his playstyle and lack of range against NBA defenders?

At absolute worst Jabari is JJJ, which is a solid playoff player. The other two have a higher bust factor.

JJJ is a game changing defensive player when he's on the court that can stretch the floor. Regular numbers don't really capture his value. When you dive into the numbers and their effects on the team, there's a very strong argument that he is one of the main reasons why they win

redumping all my draft webms and giving takes

I feel like draft people are overrating Chet's defense but underselling his potential on offense. He plays hard and smart on D which gives him a safe floor, but I think his athleticism limits him at the NBA level. Offense is where he earns #1 prospect status imo. He's not a true threat from 3 yet, but he's close and if he gets there he's going to be a big matchup problem because then he can attack closeouts and he's athletic and skilled enough to do that.

Lakers have no assets and would need to include AD or LeBron in any Kyrie or KD trade.

There is no avenue for a star. The best case scenario is they get the scraps in a 3 team trade and dump their last 1st rounder and THT, for a role player the Nets don't want in a 2 man trade.

Paolo is the most complete player of the top 4. He's got real potential as a playmaking smallball 4 or 5. He was trying to show off his shot this year and probably hurt his team doing so which bugs me some but he's not a bad shooter by any means. A lot of his game depends on power which could be neutralized by stronger NBA players.

I can see the argument for Jabari because he does the most important thing which is score, but if you're taking him #1 you're hoping he's an unstoppable scorer and not just a good scorer. People are calling him 3 and D, but I don't really see where the D is although he's probably big enough to play some C but the two things he does at an NBA level right now are shoot and midrange iso.

He definitely is, unless the Nets offer KD or something.

They might as well. Get some young 3-D players. A couple guys who can create in the half court like Jordan Clarkson. Run a 4 out with Simmons at C.

The man in OP played like Kobe in college last year, carried an offense with isos while making defensive plays too. He's on the smaller side for a wing but should be good in that Booker spot if his 3 is good enough.

He's just a hater he probably got mugged in philly because he was a bitch. If nobody wanted to be in philly superstars wouldn't be asking for trades there (Kyrie, harden) and players wouldn't be opting out to sign there (PJ Tucker)

It's also one of the only real cities in america.

I was actually impressed with his defence at times and he was the best player for the Heat in games 4-5 against Boston when Butler was shaken up. This was after two years out with injury, some failed surgery and he comes back just in time for the playoffs. I think with some more rest and healing he should be really good next season.

True. They just need to put three 3+D defenders around Lebron and Davis so they can carry those 2 bums. Too bad those are the most coveted players now. Something like Lebron, healthy Davis, Caruso, Reaves, Bruce Brown would have been a world beater

I will never forgive Rob for letting Caruso go and choosing THT. He's one of the top defenders in the league and would allow LeBron to rest. Last season, LeBron was gassed by the 3rd after chasing all the guards down and trying to score too. If >we just brought the same team back from 2021, we would've been okay.
