  1. did. not. stretch. Blake gave up $13.3M of his salary which is more than I thought he would give up and the dead money will be off the books after next season so that's a win in my book.
  2. The Lions need to draft the best player available, best talent available regardless of position. As has been mentioned, Pitts is more a big WR than a TE. Florida used him all over the field. He's labeled as a TE because of his size but this guy runs like a WR and runs WR routes. I wouldn't be opposed at all to the Lions drafting him, he's a supreme talent. If they see him as BPA, they shouldn't hesitate to draft him. He and Hock would create a lot of mismatches.
  3. The way he glides offensively, smooth stroke. I see some similarities in how they play at the offensive end. Mobley is far more versatile defensively than Bosh was and handles the ball more. Again, and I said it multiple times, Bosh isn't a perfect comparables but I do see SOME similarities in their game. It's hard to find a comparable for Mobley because he's unique. Different type of player but kind of like Chet Holmgren who also does things that a player his size shouldn't be able to do.
  4. Well that's stupid, but there's also fans who do nothing but trash Pistons prospects and who call prospects 7 games into their career a bust essentially so it all balances out.
  5. In addition to the one Buddha posted, there's this one... https://nbadraftroom.com/p/evan-mobley/ And this one... https://projectspurs.com/2021/01/05/san-antonio-spurs-prospect-watch-evan-mobley/ This one, although it was more of a physical comp which is partially why I made the comp... (Edit: Sorry, this was the one that Buddha posted) https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/30495016/scouting-2021-nba-draft-lottery-prospects-strengths-comps-intel I've seen a few others as well that made the Bosh comparison because of the offensive skillset and physical makeup. You were mocking me as if it's such a crazy comparison. Others see it as well. Again, not a perfect comparison but there are similarities especially offensively.
  6. I'm not the only one, including scouts who watch these players for a living, to make the Bosh comparison so.... It's not a perfect comparison but I see similar elements in their offensive game and their build. Mobley is a hybrid so it's really difficult to make a perfect comparison, he has an assortment of skills and is sort of unique. My worry with him is that he's pretty soft and tends to differ to others a lot but that could change as he gains more experience and realizes that he can be the best player on the floor if he really wants to. He's still in that "timid" stage of his development which shows how good he can be if he figures it all out because he's pretty good already as is.
  7. KG is far more aggressive than Mobley. Mobley is much more cerebral, he doesn't have that take over "I want to destroy you" mentality that Garnett had. I suppose Bosh would be a better comparison.
  8. Yeah, big fan of Jackson's attitude. He's relentless and doesn't back down from anybody. Weaver got a lot of criticism for his free agent signings and trades (I was one of them) but the Grant, Jackson and Wright acquisitions have been solid. Even Plumlee, despite what Del says, has made some positive contributions. At the very least, they're building a culture of a hard working team that will compete every game.
  9. But more importantly, how many rebounds did he get?
  10. The Pistons have no incentive to buy him out if he doesn't make any salary concessions so it's up to him to give up some of next years' salary if he really wants out. Otherwise, the Pistons can just sit him until they find a trade partner either this year or next and deal him as an expiring by next years' deadline or let the contract simply expire.
  11. Blake is going to have to forfeit a good chunk of that 39 million if he really wants to play elsewhere otherwise they're stuck with each other through next season so ultimately this comes down to how badly he wants to move on. He's going to have to sacrifice a lot of money to do so. Also, why are you guys even discussing trade? No chance, not even Weaver is dumb enough to attach a valuable asset just to make Griffin happy. It'll be buy out or he's stuck here if he doesn't want to give back much salary.
  12. At least Plumlee can occasionally have a good game. Buddha on the other hand?....
  13. Disagree. If they win a few led by the young guys then it's fine, a terrible victory is the ones led by the vets. As long as the young guys are developing properly, I don't mind a few wins. In any event, they aren't finishing bottom 5. Their first half schedule had to be the toughest in the league so I'd imagine that the second half will be one of the easiest in the league so their second half record will almost certainly be better. Teams like the Wolves and Wizards are clearly worse, the Magic, Bulls, Cavs and Thunder are likely to push really hard for worst record so the Pistons will likely be in familiar territory in that 7-10 pick range.
  14. You said he has no arm strength, that's far from the truth, and I'm not even a big Goff fan. You were right that Wentz was better at his peak and Goff is a not a good decision maker but wrong that he has no arm strength.
  15. Actually the insiders, including Schefter who is reliable, were saying that there was a market for Goff. I find that hard to believe considering how poor he's been the last few seasons and that contract but in a QB market with high demand and short supply, it's possible.
