Thread: NBA Draft 2021

  1. #1

    Default NBA Draft 2021

    OK, so no surprise and Cade Cunningham goes to Pistons as No.1. I hope Pistons eventually will figure it out with him and Hayes and others.

    Huge drafts for international stage. Josh Giddey at 6, huge. I like him. Wagner 8, huge. Sengun 16. Garuba 23. Jokubaitis 34. Petrusev 50, Koprivica 57, G. Kalaitzakis 60.

    Some other internationals as Kuminga and I probably missed something.

    Well, strong crew from Europe as well with Wagner, Sengun and Garuba as instant NBA players probably and Jokubaitis is an open question I guess, I think NY will stash him for 1 season.

    O, yeah, Aldama. Likely important piece for Spaniards in the future. They should be building nicely with Garuba, Aldama, Alocen, Nunez. It's nearly surreal to match their golden generation (probably ever), but Spaniards will be OK.

    The Bucks selection of picks was clearly advised by Giannis, Kalaitzakis shares the same (Greek) agent as Giannis (A. Saratsis - co-owner of Octagon - Giannis and Thanasis are the godfathers of his new born) and is also the agent of Donte Divincenzo. Kalaitzakis was intentionally under promoted so that he would end up drafted by the Bucks.

    The Bucks 2020 pick, Jordan Nwora (Nigerian - co-nation as Giannis parents) has also chosen a co-nation and friend of Saratsis in Greek Georgios Roussakis to be his agent.

    Georgian Mamukelashvily is a 6.11 240 pds big, who can play all positions from 1 to 5... He will have to improve his defense and learn to move by taking longer strides if he is to survive the NBA (I guess both are correctable, especially if he is to be mentored by Giannis) but if he does, his strong points are so rare that "the sky is the limit".
