  • So the bad news for Warriors fans was the news yesterday that Clay Thompson injured his right lower leg and a scheduled to have a memory today.

  • The good news is that the team pick James Wiseman with the second pick in the NBA draft.

  • Max Kellerman.

  • You're up first.

  • All things considering everything that happened with Clay and the injury.

  • Do you think that they made the right choice taking Wiseman second?

  • I believe they did.

  • I believe they did, because Klay Thompson Klay Thompson's career is not over a matter of fact, that Clay Thompson was re upped toe a Max deal even after he got hurt.

  • He's been out last season.

  • We hope that he's not gonna be out this season, but eventually he will be back.

  • This is a three time champion.

  • This is a guy that went to the playoffs until the Finals five straight times.

  • This is one of the top five shooters in the history of basketball, and obviously, Steph Curry, with this 200 plus million dollar contract, ain't going anywhere.

  • So if I know I got those two for the foreseeable future, all right?

  • And I just gave Draymond 100 million over the next four years.

  • Why would I not get a big that can give me some minutes at the five that can rebound and defend finished at the basket at a decent clip better than Jaja for Julia or Andrew Bogut ever did?

  • Why would I not do that?

  • I love the James Wiseman pick.

  • I think it was a wise decision on their part.

  • I think it's a bad fit.

  • I mean, why is Mitt look if they feel he's the most talented guy there and they wanna build their team for the future, I get taking Wiseman.

  • If Clay Thompson is healthy, I also sort of understand it.

  • But the fact of the matter is, in the modern MBA, you have tow, have some shooting.

  • You know, like I get it.

  • You could play a different style Kirk and coaching different style.

  • You could have a more athletic up and down team, Wiseman and and and Wiggins and these guys.

  • But other than Steph, who shoots who's going to get any minutes on this team?

  • If we're just talking about this upcoming season, if Clay isn't there, let's see what happens.

  • Hopefully he is there, but If he's not Wiggins, Paschal, Draymond Wiseman.

  • There's not enough shooting.

  • You're not gonna even make the playoffs likely.

  • I mean, maybe with 10 teams of the chance to make the playoffs, maybe, but there's just not enough shooting.

  • So the only defense is if they just look at that and go, we believe in Wiseman Ceiling.

  • If he's DeAndre Jordan, that's a nice player.

  • But DeAndre Jordan in the in this league.

  • Hassan Whiteside, although his career didn't go the way, maybe people are hoping those guys are available every year in free agency, and they're not that expensive.

  • So to shoot the number two pick in the draft on Wiseman, you have to believe he's more than that.

  • What?

  • Maxie is more than it first off and you don't just have toe have shooting to make the playoffs.

  • You have Steph Curry.

  • You have Draymond green and you have Andrew Andrew Wiggins and then you add Wiseman.

  • Hopefully, Clay could come back.

  • You know, I'm praying that it's not that serious, but if Clay come back and he's able to come back and perform, then we're back to talking about them competing for a title, but without play this team still has enough to at least make the playoffs in the Western Conference.

  • Any time you have a guy like Steph Curry, who you said on here and argument argue with me about about a month ago telling me why is he so much better than James Harden?

  • If you long as you have Steph Curry on the court, you have a chance at winning ball games.

  • Not getting James Wiseman was huge.

  • He's not your typical big.

  • This guy runs the floor.

  • Yes, he's, Ah, live thread at the rim and a rim protector.

  • But he actually have offensive moves on the low block.

  • And by the way, he was coached last year, although he didn't play a lot of games for Memphis.

  • But he was still around those guys working out and Penny Hardaway, Mike Miller.

  • Those guys are, well, eh?

  • NBA players around the NBA.

  • So he's n ba ready already.

  • And you know what?

  • I was watching first take earlier this morning, right checking you out and Jay will says something.

  • Stephen A What's the word?

  • Because I don't know how to put him out.

  • The words you always blasphemous for me, right?

  • That's blasphemy!

  • Blasphemy!

  • Hey said he said that Andrew Bogut was able to stretch the floor for the Golden State Warriors.

  • Hey apologized for that.

  • Hey, said he was Hey, apologized because he said he was on two hours sleep.

  • KP He said he was on two hours sleep and he had a brain fart.

  • He didn't mean that.

  • That's what he said.

  • Yeah, I don't care.

  • I don't care if you was on 15 minutes of sleep.

  • You can't have that type of brain for it.

  • But anyway, James Wiseman, James Wiseman, is more than what?

  • You're giving him a man and he's gonna prove you wrong.

  • Okay, He's gonna prove you wrong.

  • You just sit back and watch.

  • Listen, James Wiseman, let me tell you something right now.

  • You gotta got Max.

  • Just imagine this, Max.

  • I got a shooter like Steph Curry who move so fluidly without the basketball.

  • I'm constantly spying and I'm worried about him.

  • I can't pin down on Wiseman near the basket, so he's gonna see one on one coverage on the N B.

  • A level because they nobody leaving Steph Curry open.

  • And you've got a team that's watching him because they don't want to kick out to him.

  • Keep that in mind, E.

  • I understand.

  • And Wiseman could prove me wrong if he really developed Beyonce, a DeAndre Jordan type or someone like that, who's That's a very nice player.

  • I expect.

  • Wiseman Toe have a nice career.

  • I'm talking about for this Warriors team.

  • You're trying to win a championship, and now you're down.

  • Clay Thompson.

  • Guys, I know not everyone has to shoot.

  • You could be an excellent player without it.

  • What I'm talking about is just think off the minutes on the floor.

  • Other than Steph, no one shoots.

  • Wiggins is below average.

  • Haskell doesn't shoot.

  • Wiseman does not from three, and neither does Dre anymore.

  • No one shoots Max just just because he don't Just because Wiggins don't shoot don't makes him a score.

  • He's a career 20 point at night score.

  • He still could get buckets, and we're not gonna discredit with Draymond Green Draymond Green brings to the table.

  • The Warriors will make the playoffs this year if play don't come back.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.
