if there was some hope with the front office I could 100% get behind a rebuild. I just have no faith in these two kooks

nope! its gonna take many good moves to get my trust back... Markkanen looks like a piece, not sure hes gonna be a star or anything yet, jury is out. they need many more pieces to be a contender though

Based off of what I've seen, I'd put him in that borderline star spot similar to a Chris Bosh or Ray Allen who could definitely be the 3rd of a Big Three, but definitely not the star you build the team around successfully.

Turner is averaging 8.5 turnovers a game this month. Like I told you guys, he's not the top pick. No way

Who is Turner?
My name is Grimm Reaper. Commander of the Death Stalkers FBB team, General of the Rude Dawgs FFB team and loyal poster on the "True" message board "The Illini Nation". Member of a pissed off fan base, supporter of a betrayed program, and I shall have my revenge in this season or the next!

Assume you meant Trae Young, but I don't think he was ever in the discussion for top pick. Its Luka, Ayton, and Bagley for that honor...do think Trae has played his way into the top 10 though.

Porter will be in the discussion for the top pick if he works out well for teams.

Luka has a high B-ball IQ and deadly stroke to match.
Bagley's ceiling is off the charts
Ayton is a physical presence in the post
Porter's stock will depend on how he recovers from his back injury
Young is super talented but the turn overs and shot selection have to improve dramatically.
