You sure WL? If so great news! Denver just bombed their next pick. Check out his scouting report. Where’s dat upside?! Lol

Lewis' season is already finished after Pepperdine limped to a 2-14 record in WCC play and a first-round exit in the conference tournament to lowly Pacific.

Lewis looked like he elected to enter the NBA draft in January and simply forgot to tell anyone, as he seemingly just went through the motions for much of conference play, shooting an alarming 47% from 2-point range and 26% from 3 with more turnovers than assists while playing even less defense than usual, even by his porous standards. Lewis will now need to answer difficult questions to convince teams in workouts and interviews that he's a better competitor than what he displayed, and that his situation and coaching staff had as much to do with his underachieving play.

Despite the red flags, there will be a long line of NBA teams looking to learn more about Lewis during the pre-draft process. Everyone is looking for fluid, long-armed 6-7 wings with shot creation, shot-making versatility and upside, especially late bloomers like him. -- Jonathan Givony

Vukcevic to Washington!

Great fit with Porzingis going to Boston.

It's amazing to me how little respect for Drew Timme. Here is his wikepedia bio:

Andrew Matthew Timme (Timmy; born September 9, 2000) is an American college basketball player who most recently played for the Gonzaga Bulldogs of the West Coast Conference (WCC). He is a three-time consensus All-American selection, including first-team honors as a senior in 2023. He has twice been voted the WCC Player of the Year.

I’d like to see Milwaukee grab Castleton at 58. He’d be an excellent backup Center to Lopez.

Seeing the 4 announcers calling the NBA Draft with one of them being the retired player JJ Reddick. He looks like he could still play!

Yes hoping to hear Tubelis, Timme and Castleton picked very soon!

Thug Emoni Bates Drafted 49th. Was a Top10 pick before a series of Tom Iron Rules brought him down. He will get picked up on another gun charge soon.

The 2023 NBA Draft is over. So many great players overlooked but when it's at the end of the 2nd round your better off to just let
the teams call you or pick up a phone and reach out to them like in the NFL. It may end up working out better for guys like

Drew Timme

Azeolas Tubelis

Chris Castleton

There are countless other guys but you guys get the point. Very little respect for 3 guys that have starter potential. Must be
that damn white skin disease that the people who run things just can't stand. So sad as they among many other guys deserved
to be drafted alot earlier tonight.

So 3 in each round. 6 out of 58 or 10%. Makes the 20% NFL draft look good by comparison.

Blackest Draft ever? Going to be a lot of Busts in this vaunted ‘23 class.

Only 2 White Euros selected! Ha! NBA a copycat League my ass! No one is interested in finding the next Doncic or Jokic! They prefer to go with the myth that they are simply outliers ala CMac as token RB in NFL.

Almost every where you look these days it is anti white. All the movies, tv shows, sports, cartoons, video games, etc. etc. have all
become one white hating and white replacing machine working together to destroy all aspects of our culture!

Horrible news. Anti White Hating Philly signed Azeolas Tubelis to a 2 way contract. They will do to him what they did to McClung. How
can a guy like Tubelis with his athletecism and talent level go undrafted? Oh he's white I forgot.

No one has signed Timme or Castleton yet. From bad news to worse. It's hard to stay positive sometimes!

One slightly positive thought. Joe Wieskamp is also on the Raptors. He has been in the NBA G League for most of his 2 years
in the nba wasting away. Those guys with 40 inch verticals that are white get burried. Christian Braun made it but not many do.
Look at McClung. Back to the topic. If Wieskamp gets onto the team next year then the Raptors would have 3 whites. Not much
but they are all young. Especially Gradey Dick and Joe Wieskamp. So maybe if the Raptors are smart they will pair these 2 athletic
white guys and give them playing time. I think Gradey Dick will get good minutes 2nd string to start. Wieskamp has to battle just
to get out of the G League. We can hope though!

Timme is reportedly being signed by the Bucks. @Bucky should be happy!

Castleton signed a 2-way with the Lakers. Not a bad fit at first glance because LA is in “cap hell” and needs to fill the back end of the roster with minimum salary players. Austin Reaves has a firm starting role now, but if another team throws a big contract offer at him, the Lakers will have a vacancy for their token white guy.

Heat nailed their Draft and UDFA!

Great pickup for The Bucks! Timme will outplay the SF from KY they drafted last.
