I reached for him at the 2/3 turn.

Paired him up with Curry and Vucevic.

I was thinking about Myles Turner there and I think he would have much better value, but felt that JJJ fit my composition a lot better and had a higher ceiling.


Realistically, I think JJJ tends to fall to the end of the 3rd.

He's getting way too much hype.  I'd love to draft him but he's now going at peak value around his ceiling. That's not worth it.

3rd round is not his ceiling though ... if he fully breaks out and is a focal point for scoring on that team 1st round is his ceiling.

I don't play dynasty.  If you are talking Dynasty, then absolutely I agree with you.  In a redraft though, I think he maxes out as late 2nd round value.

And notice the words you used.. "IF".. You shouldn't be drafting players with a lot of IF's with your first 2 picks.  At least in H2H.

I think JJJ will be a top 20 player at some point in his career, but I don't think it'll be this season.  But foul trouble is a concern.  We always remember the great big men that had potential but struggled with foul trouble when they were young, and then got over it.  But don't remember the bad big men that had potential but struggled with foul trouble when they were young, but never got over it.

I'm not gonna bother naming those players, cause people will inevitably say I'm comparing JJJ to them.  I'm just saying that fixing foul issues is not a foregone conclusion.

Post all star the foul trouble will be a distant memory. Focal point/face of the franchise all the minutes he can handle, the investment is a guaranteed pay off in redraft, and especially in dynasty. 


feb? You talkin about February
