    Re: #15 Pick

    below 30% 3pt shooter from the college line.
    6'4", won't be playing the 3
    Sounds like he will be better than Flip, due to a better mid range jumper
    Can he play the point?

    Still no backup 3


    BTW, gotta love Isaiah dumping Stevie Francis for Zach
    Everyone's getting better in the east, what about Detroit?

    This could haunt them. Have to think Nick Young was the better fit. A two that can play the 3.

    I hope I am wrong, but I think that we are going to regret the Stuckey pick. I would have prefered Nick Young or Joe D. picking up the phone to move up and get Al Thorton once he fell below 10.

    Re: #15 Pick

    did you guys see his interview on ESPN?... this guy is humble, down on his luck with grades, hes hungry too. I think he fits the mindset Joe D is looking for and he has the driving inside game we seek, he should work. As for covering the point, i started a thread to discuss that we'll have two combo guards to backup our 1 and 2.

    Re: #15 Pick

    Lets go back to 1998 when the C's took paul Pierce at the 10th pick and we had to settle on Bonzi wells who was later traded. I am thinking we have a similar scenario tonight as Al Thorton who was taken by the Clippers right ahead of us at 14 will prbably be as valuable as Pierce, two years from now, and knowing the Clippers he will be starting by mideason ahead of Mobley.

    With Stuckey he will have to prove himself in the summer league and camp to assure that he gets those Hunter/Murray minutes as the 2nd person off the bench.

    This was a done deal if Law was already gone. But who knew Thornton could have been right there too. That is why clipps passed on Criitenton by taking the bext player available.

    My opinion for the 27th pick if the desired big men are gone is to see if you can trade it for some experience big man who can play now, not another project who rides the pine with Dupree, Davis etc. Maybe Nene since Denver doesn't have a pick in the first round.

    Re: #15 Pick

    I don't know. That was a tough call.

    Hard to get a good read with these ESPN guys as they make everyone seem like a hack.

    Stucky was only the 3rd guard selected in the entire draft so he can't be that bad. Does have size and strength. Looks like he could be that combo guard we have been looking for - at least I hope.

    Re: #15 Pick

    This is why I am a little disappointed. We should have called up Memphis or the Clippers and tried to work a deal to get Al Thornton. When you are as old of a team as we are and it is all about winning championships atleast that's what the Pistons claim we need to go all out to stay on top a little longer even if we had to give up next years 1st round pick along with the 15th to move up to the 13th or 14th pick to make it happen.

    Hopefully, with the 27th pick we can get SEC Player of the Year Derrick Byars to back up former SEC Player of the Year Tayshaun Prince:)

    I dont dislike Stuckey, and I know I will grow to like him in time, I just personally believe it wasnt the pick we needed to make, given our current situation.

    I have a real good feeling about Stuckey.

    Here was a prop #48 guy who couldn't get into the Pac 10 (they don't take Prop #48 players) and he eventually wound up with a GAP of over 3.2. He is also a gym rat.

    He also has a ton of talent, can handle the ball, shoot including free throws and play defense.

    I think we will come to really like him and his game.
