The Kings vs. Suns game tonight included a matchup between the number 1 and number 2 picks in the draft. ​ Marvin Bagley III: game high 32 pts (10/15 shooting), 7 rebs, 1 ast, 1 stl, 1 blk, 1 to in 32 minutes DeAndre Ayton: 16 pts (8/10 shooting), 9 rebs, 0 asts, 1 blk, 2 tos in 32 minutes ​ Excellent matchup, its exciting to see so many members of this draft class showing such immense talent this early on in their careers.
The real travesty is that Ayton only had 10 shots
Hes a legitimate walking 20-10 player. Absolutely 0 excuse to feature him this little in your offense when youre one of the worst teams in the league. I dont buy the PG excuse.
Have to remind myself he skipped his HS senior year to go to Duke. Still a kid. Has a future.
I get the bag and flip it and tumble it
No. The Kings should be ASHAMED and EMBARRASSED for not taking Luka
I can’t not read this in a Stephen A. voice, even though I don’t think I’ve ever heard him talk about the two of them.
bagley > luka in terms of ceiling
Ayton and bagley didnt match up at all Bagley scored almost all his points vs the Suns bench..
This isnt even true, they did match up in the 4th, go watch again
Yeah and Bagley scored 2pts on ayton They didnt match up, Ayton was guarding almost only cauley-stein.
And no one would give Ayton the ball
Kings commentators were like “wtf are the suns doing”
I was actually surprised by this as well - it felt like the Suns could have fed Ayton the ball a lot more. He has the strength advantage to out-muscle Bagley / WCS / Giles in the low post. He shot 8 of 10, its not like he was having a bad night.
Yeah. I think Bagley scored on Ayton once and Ayton actually scored a couple times on Marv.
hes sooooo nasty
I was pretty low on Bags but man, he has been so good. In fact all of the Top-5 picks have been impressive and shown a lot of promise.
Yeah but Doncic
Didnt make a case for being picked over a generational talent like Doncic though
Not every thread about a rookie has to become a Luka thread, everyone on this sub acknowledges hes the consensus best player from the draft but there are other good players too.
Do you say anything else? Suck his dick already Edit: just checked your profile. Lukas not gonna fuck you bro...
Plz fucking shut up
get outta here doncic stan
theres no justifying passing no Doncic lol
Makes his case with 1 game lol? I love Bags but he was picked 2 spots higher than he should’ve been, not even talking about in hindsight. Few mocks had him at 2. Again, not saying he can’t be the best player from this draft eventually, just that he wa
He also balled out the Spurs game Monday, dude looks noticeably than at the beginning of the year
Crazy how much people hate on him cause Luka went one pick later. Dudes playstyle could be absolutely perfect next to Fox. While Luka is a great player (surely nobody could have guessed hed be so close to being an all star year 1), he would take away po
