To the guy who mentioned Terrence Williams, he is definitely a solid talent. However, he is not good enough to look past how much of an ******* he is. That is the reason no team keeps him. The Kings let him go. The Kings!

Like I said, mid lotto with a healthy Gordon and Davis.
As is (sans those guys) we are drafting between 4-7. And we would only be so lucky. Grab a big guy to put next to Davis, or maybe see Shabazz drop a few spots and pick up a scoring 3.
Things could be much worse than living in denile and believing that as is, we are a playoff team (this early). Don't set yourself up for disappointment.
I just want to establish early on that I can't think of a worse fit for this team than Noel, and would take roughly any of the top ten players before I'd consider him, or trade the pick if someone else really wanted him. He's an Anthony Davis caliber athlete, but isn't in the same class in terms of offensive or defensive skillet, basketball IQ, and has many of the same limitations in terms of build. A frontcourt with those guys would be a disaster early on. Why could you play Noel at center but not Davis when both guys are built exactly the same? We wouldn't be able to box anyone out, and opposing bigs would always be able to get any position they wanted.
I wouldn't want Noel either but Adams, Zeller, or Shabbaz.
Oh you're that guy. See I always maintained a level of respect for you even when the whole board clowned you and claimed you were a troll for having an opinion and sticking to it. You made a gutsy call saying Davis was overrated and I respected that, though disagreed.
But when Davis plays better than expected, its the system thats making him do it? Nah thats a clown answer bro. I think you're a troll too, now.
but i am assuming you think andre drummond is playing well because he is good and not because of the system...because i am sure drummond is hitting a lot of mid range jumpers and driving to the hoop lol
It's not a stretch to say we are a playoff team with Gordon imo, we have a deep frontcourt, Anderson/Davis are good #2 options, Greivis would look better with EG to take some pressure off him, Rivers is getting better, EG would be a huge upgrade to our perimeter D, Anderson would get more open looks with Gordon..
Gordon basically sums up what the team is missing: SG, go-to guy, perimeter scorer, someone to attack the basket, a shooter, and a good perimeter defender
I don't condone "tanking", but I seriously hope we lose a lot of games, and just win a couple of good home games here and there.
Beat both LA's, Utah, and Atl (those are the games I am going to). We can play hard and lose the rest for all I care.
But such an argument is redundant anyways. As slim said, these two players would make an amazing combination on the court. We can only hope that such a fantasy can come to fruition at one point in time.
If you're gonna be bad, be bad next year, not now. The draft class is LOADED!!!!
I agree there are plenty of players who can't even be productive that way. I've said he's more skilled than I originally gave him credit for. He's a much better scoring option right now than I thought he'd be. I have no problem admitting when I'm wrong.
I didn't say Davis will remain a poor defender just that he has been so far. Matter fact I've said just the opposite. However if we are grading Davis and Gordon(when healthy) right now than I have to talk about where both are in their careers at the present time besides Gordon's injury.
Dude, face the facts.....you were wrong! You don't know basketball and you don't know anything about sports, so just chill out with your silly posted. Stop making a fool of yourself! Anthony Davis is better than Drummond could ever dream of, but you are linked to saying he wasn't and that's why people will bring up Drummonds name. (Like I've said, you're always wrong)
-stop comparing Anthony Davis a PF to a SG in Eric Gordon, they're skill sets are different as well as there playing assignments and responsibilities on the court! #GetAClueDuffy
-everyone plays in a system but its a players talent that excels his play in that system. AD23 is a great all around young player in the NBA! He's a franchise player! Per NBA Greats, not by some typists name DaThrone!
- on the Perimeter, were man2man defense is mostly needed, PG- Vasquez is the one who really struggles lacking foot speed. You over look him but try's to single out AD23 who's defense is mostly in the paint which warrants defending the rim with shot blocking and altering shots(two Big things he's great at) but yet you're looking for lock down 1on1 defense from him on his man. Really? Lmfao.....
-and for the record, Monty's defensive system/philosophies are defending your "space/area" in a man2man look! And AD23 is a Great space eater with his 7'2 wing span.
Throne, you don't know what you are talking about dude! Shut up, please!
Stop Embarrassing yourself on the Internet! Stop being a Troll hating on All New Orleans Sports, we don't like you nor do we want your support back home. Plus we don't want you back in the city #Clown!
Your life have changed but yet your mind is still immature, still spittin out buffoonary!
Wow! This was harsh^^^
Who cares who was better at one point or at any point in their careers?
What's the point in arguing about such a silly thing? We have both players after all.
The fact of the matter is that Davis has played extremely well, especially on the offensive end. We know what we have in him and we should be thankful for it. If, or when, Gordon finally gets healthy, our team will have a lethal combination for teams to gameplan for.
