"Let's talk winners and losers. What teams do you think did the best on draft night? Give me one. The easy one is Detroit, Detroit Pistons. Okay. That's far and away the first was getting Jaden ivy where they did..

"I don't know that I see a lot of value here, do you? I don't, but if you're just like an absolute degenerate, I don't think Apollo bank share plus 300 is like a bad thing to take a flyer on. Because I'm kind of under working assumption that jabari is going one and the decision is going to be two is a Cheddar or Apollo. Oklahoma City has kept it close to the vest forever. Did they trade out of there? Do they do something funky? They're known for doing stuff differently. That would be a different pick than sort of what you alluded to the consensus of what everyone else has. Well, and for what it's worth, I think different for them, given what the there have been random reports out there that they like Jaden ivy, right? And we don't want to write one that play into it. Like if they like Jade and I say, hey, we can give it four. If they somehow traded, it was a flip, a three way pick or whatever, because that second overall pick. It doesn't say who Oklahoma City's pick is. If somebody trades up, do they take power back arrow? Right. In Jade and ivy is sitting at 21 right now to go second. I like that more than I like Paulo at three to one. If you're looking for a flyer, but I think it's much more likely that Chet goes number two. Zach flash up number three overall. We've got Paul banker minus three 20 chat home grim plus 5 50. Jabari Smith plus 600. The fact that Paulo, his slid so far back toward the number one overall pick in terms of the odds because sportsbooks has taken sportsbooks have taken so much money on him now at number one. Combined with the fact that he is still minus three 20, him going number three is actually the biggest favorite out of all of these topics. Realistically, like 5 picks, I think, even..
"jaden ivy" Discussed on Jeff Goodman Basketball Podcast
"Jayden's ability to create shots at a really high level is very underrated, I think, I think he has, in terms of technical craft, the best handle in this class. Like there's no antidote for just being able to run around dudes, like Jaden ivy can. But in terms of just the technical ability to change direction change pace, I think his handles exceptionally tight. I also loved his last month of the season for the ignite. He was horrible for the first few months, but he really kind of figured out that mix of being able to make plays as a passer. I think he's an underrated passer when his mindset is geared toward that. And then on top of it, he made 40% of his threes over the last month month and a half of the season on ten attempts per game. I think he can generate those shots that are really high level. This is a Jordan pool like upside swing for me where if it works, you know, I have a guy that can create shots and there is very little more valuable in today's NBA than guys that can knock down shots and create them out of isolation. Matt, when you look at a guy that was a top 5 recruit coming out of his class that might have slid down the draft boards a little bit. Does that play into your mind at all? Like he crushed it every level of basketball until he got here and maybe he just wasn't a great fit where he was the year before he's drafted. Yeah, sure. I mean, it's something that I take a look at, you know, and I think one advantage some of us have is we don't have the red tape that NBA teams do as far as high school events. And so I saw him in high school and I saw that crazy raw talent and upside and I think he was a little bit of a victim of going to the professional setup probably too soon because he's got a lot of talent..
"jaden ivy" Discussed on NBA Front Office w/ Keith Smith & Trevor Lane
"Thank you, nuts. What do we think about this? How much does this actually matter in terms of the kings and their draft process? Yeah, I don't think he let it chase you off that they did. Well, worries me more is the medical part. In its sounds like the way the story is being reported by Jonathan givani of ESPN, that the kings haven't been able to get his medical. That part makes me a little bit concerning. Now, Jade and ivy also though it doesn't have like a long history of injury that I'm aware of, so that's maybe less concerning. He's also not a 7 footer, where you really want to be able to look at those guys and go to the back, the legs, the feet look like on those kids with that. So that's a part damps concerning but not super worrisome. So I do think it is a position for the kings aware. This is not great. And the only way this gets fixed is if they fix it, right? And start winning and start making good decisions. Exactly. Then all of a sudden that you stuff goes away and you will go a different direction. It seems like, well, the kings have to trade this pick now, right? They've got to move. In a different direction, well, you don't make a bad trade just because it does not want to be there. In the reality is the way the NBA works. Fair unfair that's a discussion for a much later time. It doesn't matter what he wants. It's he's not going to not sign and not play. You don't have any control over this earlier. You can try to control it to the extent of right now. Hey, I don't want to be here. But what's that mean in four years? You're going to sign somewhere else. Kings aren't going to worry about that. And it's not like he's going to show up and not play hard and all those other things. So if you're the thing, you do what you think is best for you without a lot of regard for the rest. That said, I don't fault Jaden ivy at all. Absolutely..

"Saw it a little bit late in the season with brook Lopez's inclusion back into the lineup. And if they get Chris Middleton back, they should be the title favorites, I think. With Lopez, given what we've seen so far. He's looking very good. Last thing on the playoffs. Give me predictions for the rest of these series based off of where we are. Do you want games to or no? I don't really care. and boy I wouldn't have said that 36 hours ago. Boston Philly, Phoenix, and Golden State. I think I agree with all of them. Well, I agree with the last three. I would take Milwaukee still, given that they're up to one, giving themselves home court advantage at the time of recording this. Yes. I would go Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Golden State, and I still would go Phoenix. That was no brainer sweep to me 36 hours ago, 48 hours ago. And now I'm like genuinely worried. I'm worried about Dallas clearly having found schematic advantages in terms of X's and O's in this series, and I'm worried about Phoenix, actually just having the means to be able to switch it up. To slow those down to some extent. But Chris Paul is not going to play worse than he played in game four. So we'll say, okay, the last thing here. Let's do it. James, I want to help you. I want to help you come to terms. With Jade and ivy being good at basketball. So explain to people what your, so James, you know, obviously does draft coverage for the pistons for our site. And James is really good at this. I like reading James draft work because he has a very good understanding of where the pistons are and what they need and what they're doing. So explain your take on Jaden ivy because I think I don't think that like it's not uninteresting for sure. I think it is. I've talked to scouts who have similar perspectives on Jade and ivy. First of all, I always like to lead with love. So I love Jaden ivy's competitiveness. His explosiveness. I think and as somebody that watches, a lot of Big Ten basketball, I think he is in a situation at Purdue that is not conducive to seeing the best of a potential NBA guard. The way that they play is just so Big Ten basketball. It's tough to watch. I do and again, this could play what I just said could play into my process of why I'm not necessarily sold on them. I do genuinely question the decision making with the ball in his hands. I am curious, specifically for Detroit, it is a team that truly and badly needs better playmakers. Like Kate is a great playmaker. But I think Kate's going to turn the ball over a lot..

"jaden ivy" Discussed on Dual Threat with Ryen Russillo
"Big shot, if he's got a big shot blocker behind him, that's probably what you're teaching him to do, and that's valuable. On ivy, quote, ivy has the most upside of any of the perimeter guys and I'm dying on that hill, but he also probably has a steep floor where if he doesn't shoot and he's just a crazy athlete who never figures out how to properly attack and be a defenses. He's like a lot of other guys who sadly are now in the gigli. That said his production was pretty steady all year. And when he knew he could go and attack the way he wanted, he was a monster. He showed his emotions probably too much for some guys at times getting frustrated playing through the bigs, but he also has that FU factor where he knows if he is the man and he gets a chance to play where things are more free. He's going to be even better. He breaks down some of the other guys. We'll get to that. Maybe a different day. Okay, another front office member. I said, all right, give me your cut on the first tier. And in order, he has a chat one jabari two Paolo three. Because I think it's close, reasonable case to be made for all of them. And then in only his second he has two names, it's AJ Griffin and Jaden ivy. All right, another executive. I go, give me the same thing, all right? In order, this surprised me. Jabari Smith and then sharp out of Kentucky, Jay navy, Chet, then Ben Carroll. Questions about vicarious defense and his position, Cheddar's competitive skilled smart, worry about his body and position. And there you go. About that, that really surprised me. And I've got one more that I'll share with us today. All right, so in order, this is the first tier from another executive. Jabari won, Jay naive two. Paolo three Chet holmgren four. So he believes this is the top four for about 5 weeks. And then I said about specifically with Chet. He goes, quote, he's so skilled and talented. He's not soft. He's not been hurt either, but that frame scares me. His dad is the same body structure. It's an athletic performance staff deep dive above anything else. I also think he's a four and not a 5 at his size he's at. In games that I've seen him live against his conference competition, he still gets bumped off spots his skill and talent is so intriguing, but he's not the frame of mobley or porzingis or others that were coming out. Up on Carol, I have some hesitation with his first step in quickness, but his body and skill translates right away at this size. And Smith and ivy are total locks at one and two. So there you go. Get ready for the tournament. And check out some of those guys. The chat thing is going to be really, really hard. It's going to be really hard. And check goes one to a team that is just give a shit, or it's a GM that goes. I have so much equity. That's why the presti thing is presti won't care. He'll take them. We've all seen that presti can put together really competitive rosters. He's done a really good job. If you're a front office.

"One Bucky two Purdue three Rutgers is the four seat. Hey, Rutgers is the four seed. Indiana plays Michigan in the 8 9. And I don't think that's an elimination game. I think Michigan's inn because when Howard got the suspension, I said, martelly's got to get that team to three wins. And I don't think he's going to do it. I thought they'd go two and three. You got them to three. Stick them with it. I still think they're good. But Indiana, Michigan, 8, 9, second round matchup that'll be Friday that's got some serious intrigue to it. So I was actually curious where Michigan landed in the tournament because of this result and there it is. Who's yours? We'll get to them in just a second. They'll play against Michigan in the 8 9 there. I think Michigan's good. I think they should be in no Dickinson as well. That was a really, really big win on the road at your rival. Beat in Ohio State and the pattern continues, by the way, since February 10th, this is Michigan. Win loss. Win loss. Win loss win loss win. The pattern holds Indiana will continue to save its season and beat Michigan when the Big Ten tournament starts to leave this week. But we'll have to wait and see. Got Internet problems still in Indiana. This time Jaden ivy calls them, cost them, I know. You want to swerve right into that because what the hell? No, no. They're not even watching this. They can't watch it. Okay. What was that last play that came? I don't know. Closer than I needed to. So, yeah, whatever. Like this is not good for us. Indiana is a basketball crazed state. I mean, we've taken one of the most basketball craze states. And they can't watch the oncology basketball podcast because the Internet's out. We're talking Purdue fans too, right? They're just getting caught up in this. You know? I think the way it works and I'll have to read more about it. But it is if you are registered as a Purdue fan, it's a little bit like Elon Musk is doing and Ukraine. They're bringing in. They'll bring in special equipment and they'll get your Wi-Fi working. But they got to hit up Elon Musk, basically. Yes. Purdue fans, I think, have a direct relationship with Elon Musk. And so they're able to get Internet, but who's your fans? It's a bad situation. Mark Cuban isn't helping them out. Are you? Famous are you alone Mark Cuban? He can't step in and do anything for them right now. I haven't heard from an Indiana fan in weeks. Okay. Internet. You must be right. Internet down. It's terrible. Let me ask you this. Is Houston a computer trigger? Check out the case. Lay out the case. What do you mean? Go ahead. Well, Houston, first off, you're outright AAC champion. Not trying to discount that. Kelvin Sampson, I think I could make a Hall of Fame case for him. Tremendous coach. I think Houston might be computer trickers. They woke up on Sunday morning. They're third in the net. Third in the net. They're fit to Ken palm, second and BPI, fourth and staggering, 12th and KPI, second at torvik. Second at torvik and BPI? This is that's going to change. That's got to change after like Sunday. There's no way this team is still second and those metrics. We can't have that. Now let me give you the resume. They're one in four in quadrant one. 7 and one in quadrant two, so 8 and 5 in the first two quadrants, but they only have one quadrant one win. They have zero wins over teams currently projected to make the NCAA tournament. Their best win is over Oklahoma state. On the season, Houston is zero and four against top 30 Kim pom teams. And since losing both market session and Tremont Mark, they're one in three against the top 60 kin palm teams. They've beaten nobody all season long. Might be computer trickers. I don't know if they'll fall far enough. They'll be, they will be an interesting test case here with where they get seated. Because what you are suggesting here is like 7 C that best material and the idea that Houston would either be a 7 or in the 8 9 game is an outright nightmare for a one or two seat if it drew them in the second round. Is it that? I just told you they'd be no good teams all year. I know. Is it really? You're worried about a team that's never been made. Made the final four a year ago and brought back plenty from that. No. No, no. No coach wants to play Kevin Sampson on a two day turnaround. I know what you're saying. That is like, you gotta be bleeping Kennedy kind of situation. No coach wants Kelvin on a two day turnaround. I've been Memphis be ready to play him again. Two day turnaround though? Tuesday? Get it going? You have to beat somebody double digits every time they play now. That's factual. That did happen there. And that's what's going to get Memphis into the tournament. Penny. Get it done there. Could they be? That's a lot of chicken of a lot of computers. That's all I'm saying. That's a lot. It's a lot of computer tricking going on. They tricked all the computers. Normally you can take trick a computer. If you can't trick all the computers, they trick every computer. And I can not stress this enough. They lost two of their top four players before Christmas. In December, Christmas is.
"jaden ivy" Discussed on The NBA Show
"Line is one 888 9 9 7 8 9 in Tennessee, visit one 800 gambler dot net in West Virginia. So Zack Edie, 7 foot four. I mean, he's how heavy you see. Two 85. Two 85. Big boy. Big boy. A guy this dominant at the college level. You would think you would think that he could get a cup of coffee. A latte and espresso in americano in the NBA. Do you think that he will, why or why not? So with Edie, okay, oh, he's just a big guy, whatever. But then I'm watching Jaden ivy and then every game you watch Jaden ivy, it's like your eyes are just naturally drawn to this absolute giant of a human being scoring at will basically every single game he plays, like I think it's worth putting you send me some numbers, Kyle. It was like, this guy's putting up Shaq Zion numbers in college. He's just literally scores a well every single game he plays, and it's preposterous. There's a great website that people should check out called analytics. They have great visualizations for college data. It's really great if you're like any level of following along, they have something for you, but they have this scatter graph where they were showing like players across the power 5, players across the country, their efficiency, and you can see the dots on there and there's this one dot that's up in the upper right quadrant away from everybody and it's Zach Edie with his secretary at level efficiency. I mean, offensively he doesn't do a lot of stuff. Like he does some pretty basic things. I mean, he kind of I've noticed a lot that he'll sort of like set a screen and then his guy will be behind him and he'll like just wheel right into like a seal like he'll seal his guy and then do a baby hook. I mean, offensively I don't really see him doing a lot at the next level because I don't think that he's taken a jump shot in like two years of Purdue if I'm not mistaken. That's the thing. So I think for me watching porzingis the last couple of years has made me appreciate Zack Edie. But you're going all the way the other way. If I'm 7 four two 85, I can just score it well at the rim, why would I need to do anything else? And he has great footwork. He can use either hand. He has a good feel for the game. Like when he's double the fines the open man, a lot of Jayden ivy's assists, he'll get to the lane and then just kind of the defense collapses and you just throw the ball up and then Zach eat he's going to get the ball and he's just talking about whatever he's like a catch diameter. Get a catch radius. Catch radius is what they call it. This guy literally can catch anything around the basket and he's going to score and then okay, yeah, you think in the end that I wouldn't work, but why not? He'd be the biggest player in the NBA too. And he's so strong. It isn't like he's done even like the strongest player in the NBA. He'll be able to bang with those guys at his size. Yeah, it was cracking me up when the Kofi coburn Zack eating matchup I was joking with you was like, it was like a Pacific Rim sequel basically to watch. You get to watch Kofi coburn like wall him up. But to Edie's credit, he was like walling him up on his left shoulder and Edie was just like, okay, I'll spin right shoulder and baby hook on him. Well, 'cause this is the thing so this guy Kofi coburn. He's 6 11, 300. Like his whole life. He's been the biggest guy on the floor. He just dominates guys. And then he plays Zach idiot. It's like, not anymore, man. You're kind of a small guy now. Yeah. Right? He makes a guy who's 6 11, 300 looks small. He really does. And I guess some of it around. I remember to go back to the Bo Bond thing. I'm thinking, oh, okay, he'll be in the end. He'll be a Bo Bon type. But then I looked at it, Bo Bon didn't become a player until he was like 25. Like Boban didn't even get big minutes in Europe until his mid 20s. Zack Edie is straight up dominating college basketball 20. And then it forces you to ask the question like, I feel almost blasphemous asking this and maybe this is a stupid question. Like, could he be Yao Ming? I don't know. I mean, he's big as Yao Ming. He has, I think he has Yao Ming's touch. Maybe I forgot a good Yao Ming was. I don't know. I think you have forgotten what yelling. Maybe it's I love the question though. I text you back, I was just like, I just love the question. I'm glad that it's just so chalky and to ask. But I think no, I mean, Yao Ming had like a lot of passing touch. He had like face up game. His body broke down, obviously, but I mean, he was like, had very broad skill set and he was bigger. Not by much. He was the same size as the exact ED. We're talking 747 5 300. It's about the same size. I guess it's splitting hairs. But the thing for me, I think that the differentiator, like the filter for players that big, we talked about like taco is taco fall can get a chance in India. I know Zach ED came because Edie is like, way more skilled. And it actually like passing out of the post. I had a number in front of me earlier that like, he hasn't popped at all, like we said, there's no face up game. He's rolled to the basket on. Let's see, 93.3% of the pick and rolls he's been involved in. Use its 34.1 true shooting 69.1. The question is the filter for guys that big is defense. And we're talking about could he play in like a fourth quarter crunch time, playoff scenario. He can't switch the NBA. He's gonna have to be like a drop guy. He doesn't block a ton of shots either. I think at best case scenario, I think he's just gonna be like an obstruction. He's gonna be like a disruptor, a big guy. Defensively, what do you think of him really quick before we move on? Well, I mean, that is the question, right? He'd have to be living in a drop, and then as wood is offense be good enough to justify living in a drop. And you almost have to have like jokic level offense to justify that on a good team. That is ultimately the question. And I don't think he'll have jokic level offense, but oh, you don't. I don't know though. That's two blast movies in one pod from you. I said I don't think so. But just like he'll probably stay in school at data comes pro this year. He's not getting much buzz. All this to say is you're going to want to watch Jayden ivy, but when you watch shade and IV, there's going to be this other guy, you're just going to have to see for yourself. It's just fun to watch a guy that big get buckets in my opinion. It's inevitable. We always go through this every season of the people who are dialed in on NBA and then they drop into the college world and to our world, we live in the dark. They're just tourists. No, when they come and it's inevitable to see the tweets, people are gonna be like, this guy's fucking huge and I'm excited to see it. Zack Edie is like a really interesting novel player. Before being the show, I wanted to talk about somebody, probably has more common. There's like a nice transition, I think, between Jake navy and this guy. I would just soon move. I guess the question I would want to ask you is what is your level of surprise to how well I would assume has played. Because in this past month, he's kind of made the most of some opportunity. The bulls obviously have just been like ravaged by injury. They've had a lot of guys out. I think Lonzo being out was probably the biggest thing for me. Well, Caruso, too. Yeah, yeah. What have you made of sunu? What's pop for you about him? I also want to point out that here we go. To tease the next segment. We're going to talk about a guy who literally none of people in this pot of herd of. And you just totally bury talking about this very high profile rookie for a high profile team. It just says something about my priority. Your segment teasing is just that is truly an elite skill you have. I'm a man of the people. The little guy. The voice of the house. Oh my gosh. Let's reel it in right now immediately. You insulted Yao Ming. Anyway, go ahead, sorry. So IO, he's been really good from the start of the season. And it's been fun to watch him because he started the year. There was so much perimeter town in Chicago. He's playing behind Derozan Levine, Lonzo Caruso..

"jaden ivy" Discussed on Chad Ford's NBA Big Board
"I mean, ideally, ideally for them, I like to in the scenario that we're talking about here. I like the Jaden ivey thing and the stuff that I'm putting together, maybe at home grain, a little bit depends on a little bit depends on Christian wood. I don't really like Christian wood and Chi at home. We're together, but sinn goon and homegrown. I actually kind of like that pairing together. So it'll be interesting to see and who knows, by the way, what's going to happen in Houston over the next few weeks? Because I think there's going to be some stuff going down for sure there. All right, well that sets me up with a fourth pick in the draft. Oklahoma City Thunder and by the way, folks, I think these are the four teams that are going to end up with the four worst records. What order they end up in? I'm not really sure, but there's a pretty big gap. As we get to the next city is a big test for you. Yeah, because now we're going to see. Now we're going to see if you're going to go now we're going to see if you're going to go fit or if you're going to go best player available. Oh, I'm going Jaden ivy. Yeah, I'm going to go Jaden ivy and a couple of things I'll say. I don't actually think Sam press these much of a fit guy to begin with. And so if I'm guessing, and also he's not a consensus guy, he wouldn't have taken Josh giddy. You know, I had a Jonathan kuminga. And I think Shea and Jade and ivy, I think they can work together in the back court. I question actually whether Jaden and ivy is more of a two than a point. If I have concerns about him, it's a little bit of tunnel vision with a basketball at times. I'm not really making great reads. Sometimes forcing shots. That's actually the one area concern I have. He's really. And shooting off the ball. See, he's definitely surprised me with how good he's been able to shoot when he gets his feet set. And he's spotting that. He's been less effective when he's been shooting off the bounce. Those are things that I want to see, but the elite athleticism of the size, the link. I love his drive. I love is actually background with his mom, former player, assistant coach in the NBA, head coach in college. All of that stuff just speaks to me. And I know there were some mixed opinions about him with Team USA and the under 19s with some people really loving him. Some people wondering whether it got a little selfish at times. I'm in the IV camp all the way. I'm comfortable with him after jabari Smith at one. I'm comfortable with him going in the draft. Wherever that's two, three, four. And 5, probably the range. I see people nitpicking him a little bit right now, but if you're watching jaw and things that he was see that at the next level for what he could be. I think people nitpicking him or overthinking a little bit because, you know, when you have, I mean, he's okay as a two, but I want him as a one because he's an average size too, but he's an oversized one. And when you look at that, and then you look at the athleticism, it's kind of almost like Russell Westbrook, right? You just, like, you can teach some of the tunnel vision things. You can say, okay, you got to make this read or you got to make that read. But man, when you give them that basketball, these boom, you just, you know, you just hit that crease. And then all of a sudden he's finishing on top of the ram. I mean, it's hard to replicate that. Those kind of point guards, it's just really hard to replicate. And I get it. He's not John morant because John morant was much more of a point guard at this stage. And John Moran, the thing that people don't talk about with John Moran, understandably because of what he does in the air is that he's so much more cerebral. On the ground than people give him credit for, like, Jo I can get into the lane. He's got that floater. That's one of the best floaters in the league. He does a lot. He does a lot more on the ground than people than people realize. And that sets him up for when he gets in the air. So that's the challenge that Jade and IV has to, to meet he's got to get he's got to get that in between floater, which he's starting to develop this year. I think that, you know, the perimeter shot is a lot better this year than it has been in years past. I'd like to see Matt painter, give him the ball more and have him on the ball a lot more. He has them off the ball quite a bit. I Purdue. And, you know, but the other thing with Jade navy is, he's playing with two traditional bakes. At Purdue, which kind of clouds the spacing. Once you get him in the league and you get him into that NBA spacing, he's to me he's just he's going to take off and that's why I wanted to be on Williams, maybe the best passer on the team. Absolutely. I love Trevor no wins. Yeah. Your reminds me a lot of Kayla swan again. Probably a little bit more athletic at this stage than Caleb was. But yeah. All right. So what we've done we're doubling on a Jade navy train. What we've learned is we're both on the Jade naive train. We're both on the javari Smith train. Tony's still definitely on the train. We're a little bit worried about where Paolo Ben Caro's train is ultimately land. So we know it's going to go someplace good, but how great it's going to be. And that's generally the consensus anyway. Those four guys in some order, depending on which team you talk about the four picks address. So when we come back, we're going to talk about what's next because after that, I think the consensus just absolutely starts to break down, we're going to hear Tony's thoughts. My thoughts. But first, it's built bar time, Tony. It's the new year. That means new year's resolutions. It's about getting fit, eating healthier, making sure Bill bar is in your plan. Bill part of the protein bar that tastes like a candy bar, maybe even better than it can be the candy bar. It's easy to make you stick your resolutions because it tastes so good you want to eat it, other protein bars or chalky, waxy tastes like a chemical spill. We want to eat healthy and healthy can be boring sometimes and you just think, man, this isn't worth it. Where's the chocolate? Bill bars are 100% covered in real chocolate. They contain a 130 calories four grams of sugar for net carbs, 17 grams of protein, protein, compared that to a candy bar, it gets 240 calories, 30 grams of sugar, dozens of net carbs. So here's an idea. Go to your pantry, home to office, where we kind of hide all your sweets, throw them all out, replace them with Bill bars, and you've got a snack or a treat that you can reach to..

was 5 And 7 will now perdue in the 8 people He's up to number four And Illinois has jumped up to number 17 Okay The latest polls for their standings have changed a little bit since Gonzaga is one auburn two Arizona three and produce four Baylor is 5 after a couple of losses Her face now if you look at it two top 5 teams this year in Arizona and verdugo the free throw good for Jaden ivy who has 5 points produce lead is 8 But that shows you pretty much how I scheduled it I mean it almost really tough scheduled And that's why I don't understand how the AP has been so harsh I mean if you look at Ken Tom and some of the other rating systems that take everything into account Illinois wasn't outside the top 20 I mean did we floated out of the rankings for a long time according to the AP but these are two really good teams that Illinois can pull this one off boy He's going to blow things up I be made a post 9 point perdue lead their biggest Here is capela capella pull up for the free

"More so than like plays as a half court point guard, but man some of the latter will pass in flashes have been absolutely outstanding and make you believe that he's a long-term point guard. The questions are somewhat similar to the questions I had about Jalen suggs last year and that propped up over the course of his first little bit in Orlando here. What does he look like when he actually has to make these high level ball screen reads? I would say like, just doesn't have as much experience kind of progressing through those options. He has not necessarily gotten as many reps out of ball screens as someone like John morant did, coming in to call. Or coming into the NBA, right? And I think that that could lead to lower as this numbers early in his career, despite the fact, like Jalen suggs, he does have high level vision and control over the ball as a passer. I worry a little bit about the handle, like a little bit. I think that it could get better technically over the course of the early portion of his career. But it's far enough along for him as a 19 year old to where I'm willing to just bet on it and go for the bet on the upside. So I've got Jaden ivy at a 6 four guard, 200 pounds out of perdue, sophomore. I Jade ivy as my number 5 overall pick. I really like them. He's really, really close with John Davis. He is a lightning bolt at the upper court. It's ridiculous. It's like he shot out of a cannon. And be more of those opportunities too in the NBA versus college because there's more spacing. And you'll see what he's in a half court and kind of gets like a clearest view of a cleared outside. He's like, oh, I'm going. And you see these things? He catches it. Two dribbles he floats, so he dunks and it's ridiculous. He thinks it's a once a game plan. I'll do it three or more times. And then he can use those tools when the game slows down. What it is, quick rips, what it is, now I have to shoot, and they're giving me space. He's like, has that chameleon sense and he adapts himself similar to javari Smith to the way the game is played and doesn't get too sped up or slow down either in the shooting definitely helps. The passing is significantly better, keeps his head up. He's very good at jump stopping and finding shooters in the corners or opposite has to be a little bit careful as he gets to the NBA because that's like Scott and report one O one and shocking Brad Davison to recharge on it because that's going to be the scout. He jumps to pass. He floats a little bit, charge. I'm glad you brought up the matchup that him and Johnny Davis had because it's not necessarily a recency thing for me either. They both have very strong cases. Ivy is the potential prospect with higher upside, Johnny Davis is more of the maybe production right now. Both very good and I like that pick. He was next on my board anyway. I had a four overall 5th for you here, this policy. Okay, this is where this thing starts to get wide open and at the 40 minute mark we are going to take a quick commercial break..

"The last guys before him, I believe may have been Deandre ayton and Luka Dončić in that draft class. Guys that are just like hyper elite prospects. I didn't have any tier one guys in the 2021 NBA draft process, including Anthony Edwards, lamella ball, all of those guys. So I would not have any tier one prospects in the 2022 NBA draft as of right now. I'm sure that penny and I at the end of the season will probably go through this and answer this question in a bit more detail. And try and rank prospects compared to other draft classes and all of that fun stuff because that's a really good gauge in terms of how good these prospects are is we kind of dive deeper and deeper into the NBA draft season. But I would say that I certainly would not have any prospect in the 2021 NBA draft or any in the 2022 NBA draft class. In my top three in the 2021 class, so I had kid Cunningham one Jalen sucks to Evan mobley three Jalen green four, I would not have any of jabari Smith Paul ban Caro chat home grand Jaden ivy within that top three. I think that you can make a case that jabari Smith is pretty close right now for where I am to that Jalen green ish level. I would still probably take Jalen green even given the kind of concerns that we've seen, removing that, removing the context of his struggles early on with the Houston Rockets, just remembering what he was with the G league ignite last year as a high level scorer who put up a bunch of points and had an immediately translatable skill set in terms of shooting, shot creation ability to get to step backs, explosive athletic ability, body control, everything like that. I frankly think I would still rank jaylen green just slightly ahead of the jabari Smith palo banquero class at this point. So I think that once you get into all of jaylen green, Jonathan, Scotty Barnes, I think that I would probably take Paulo over where I had Paulo and jabari Smith over where I had Jonathan kuminga and Scottie Barnes last year in that third tier kinda all to themselves. Whether or not I would take Chet in Jaden ivy. I think that those two right now are pretty close to that level. I think I would probably default more toward jet holmgren being ahead of that group. So it'd be a ranking of. Cade Cunningham, Jalen suggs, Evan mobley, followed by Jalen green, jabari Smith, Paula banquet, Chet home, grin, and then I think I would have both come in Barnes ahead of Jaden ivy right now. So it's a weaker class at the top. I think that that's the best way that I can frame this. It's just a very, very tricky class right now to evaluate if you have a top 5 pick if your team is going to end up with a top two pick in this class. I don't think it's quite as strong as what the normal draft is..

"In, the shots better and he's finishing more in the break and the pick and roll. He's done everything I've kind of wanted him to make as a leap, but I thought it would leap kind of like to the tenth pick, but I think we'd be doing him as a service if he's not at least in the talks when you're talking to the top four and potentially three two one depending on which guy watch team. I'm sorry I would have that pick. So yeah, the way that I want to format this conversation is I want to dive deep into all four players. At least for a 5 minute conversation. And then kind of make a pick almost at the end based off of our conversation and based off of everything that we've just said. So you kind of brought in the conversation on IV. So we can start on Jade 9, I think. Ivy has really, really impressed me in terms of adding to his skill level at a substantial clip. So I've always been on the train of I think Jade and IV is going to shoot long term. You look back through the high school numbers over the course of his sophomore junior senior seasons, even though he shot 26% as a freshman during his first year at Purdue, in those final three high school seasons, he shot over 40% from three on a night like insubstantial number of shots. I'm not gonna see her and say that like it was a crazy volume from the numbers I've seen. But it's not nothing, either. And given how confident he is as a shooter, given some of the streaky flashes he showed as a freshman. I mean, I remember talking to Ohio State staff and they were like, yeah, we thought we'd be good going under ball screens on. And then he just knocked down four threes against us and we were like, well, they're performing the scheme. Like, what can we do? He just hit four threes on us, like it was nothing. So yeah, like great job, right? So I've always been more on the like, I think Jaden ivy is going to shoot. And I think he's going to shoot within like the next couple of years, if not even like this year, from three. And so far, so good. He's shooting 40% from three on 4.4 attempts per game, some of those off the catch, some of them more creative in terms of getting into an inside out dribble into a crossover into a step back, right? He's showing some real flashes as a shock creating pull up three point threat. I wouldn't say it's the most consistent thing in the world, but he's there. The biggest thing with Jade naive, though, is that he's such a dynamic, powerful athlete. He is the best transition player in college basketball, like no question about it. The way that he is able to get up the floor as quickly as he can, start produce offense and make live durable passes like almost on a wire. It's almost like he's just absolutely flying sprinting, walking a high wire between building and he throws like a left handed cross corner kick out pass laser. For three, and you're just like okay, like what is this? Right, this is stuff that he didn't do last year. The passing is substantially substantially improved, and I think in large part, it's because the handle has improved. Like he can really, really handle the ball now. At an exceptional level, I am very, very impressed..

"6 16 in the top 7 and again, we can kind of like split hairs on if these guys are really the lead guards are not but Ben Simmons, Christine, buddy hill, Jamal Murray, then in 2015 we had D'angelo Russell, made a moody a year before Alfred prayed in one tenth. So anyway, just like rifling off those names because I'm looking at it and I'm scrolling through your mock and I'm looking through my notes. And I'm like, I don't know who the guy is. I had, I did the paw with Andrew and Alex the other day and they're like, do you take a job rant could you come up, I'm sorry, not traumatic cheese. Jane ivy could become a point guard in that mold. I said, I don't know, but it's an interesting question because we've talked about it is Tati Washington, the first guard off the board, like I just need a little help here if I'm going as crazy as you are. This is a this is a really good question. I would say that going into the draft. Let's say, you know, I did not necessarily think of Ben Simmons as like a quote unquote point guard even like coming into that class. So let's take him off the board. Take him off. Your body's not a point guard. It was Christ on it was Jamal Murray. Wade Baldwin. Had some steam. Like, to me, a little bit later. Yeah, the 2016 group is the one. Like that, that's the one that's really bad. If you take Ben Simmons off the board. Even 2015, like there was a lot of steam behind D'angelo Russell. There was a lot of steam behind Emmanuel moody as well, like people thought they could be a top 5 pick. So I understand what you're saying. And I think that it's not wrong because then you go down, campaign. I had campaign like in the 20s. Terry Rozier would go 16. I had him in the 20s. Jaron grant, delon Wright, tyus Jones, but like we're getting into like non lottery guards, which is not the crux of your question. Is this the worst? Now I'd say like the handful of guys. Tai Tai Washington, Kennedy Chandler who's talked about JD Davidson, Sean Montero, do you count him? Do you count? I would for what it's worth. I would put Jaden ivy in this conversation. See, if you put you in, I mean, there I think it changes it just a little bit. Not a ton, but doesn't make it as the bottom falls off. Do you count usman dang? Like probably not, but no, he's not a point. He's the they're not even the breakers aren't. A little bit better than it could be. If you include ivy, I still think it's the darkest it's been in 5 years anyway. Yeah, if you don't include ivy, it's definitely a fact. If you include IV, so you definitely don't include Jaden hardy, is like a combo like point shooting car. Ceasefire. Yeah. Yeah, I mean Jayden's firing that thing toward the rim. And it'll go a little bit more of the time. If you're lucky. So the names that I'll consider here to answer this question. I will consider ivy. Because I think that he is going to play point. I mean, we have talked about how much better his distribution skills have gotten. Yeah. I think long term he's going to be a point. Thai Thai Washington. Do we count dice and Daniels who's playing point for the elite right? Legally. Yeah, good point. Sure. Throw them in there. Not so throw them in there. Jean Montero may be Kennedy Chandler, maybe JD Davison, although another guy that I think has been a bit underwhelming..
"jaden ivy" Discussed on Chad Ford's NBA Big Board
"If you want to be following the NBA draft, I really think it's the best way to follow it and you can do all of that over at NBA big board dot com today. I hope you become a subscriber college basketball season equals the NBA draft season. And so we're really excited to get started. So we've started, I've given you giving away the top 5 guys on big board one. I also got to talk about players 6 through ten. On big board, one right now, and it starts with Caleb Houston, the Michigan freshman. He's a wing 6 8, two O 5, a guy Houston comes hails out of Canada. He was actually pretty good for team Canada and the under 19s had some really encouraging play there. He's not the sexiest prospect. He's more one of these guys that just gets it done and gets it done on the offensive end, gets it done on the defensive end. He's not gonna look to drop 30 on you every night, but he impacts the game and all the right basic ways is a score as a passer. That's a versatile defender. He just sees the way sees the game in a way that scouts really think is eventually going to help his play really pop. I really like this guy just to highly intelligent basketball player that really understands the game and knows how to play the game. And he plays the most important position in the NBA as a wing, and that's a big deal for NBA scouts. So certainly something to watch their Michigan at 6. At number 7, it's Jaden ivy that produce sophomore shooting guard the first college upperclassman in other words not non college freshmen to make our list an interestingly the only one in our lottery at this point. This lottery is heavily dominated by college freshman G league ignited over time elite and international prospects this year. So only one returning college player Jaden ivy cracks the lottery and only several, there's only a small handful that actually crack the top 30 this year. And he's one of the players that I'm just, I'm really intrigued with he was awesome for Team USA and the under 19 Phoebe championship runs. He's a great athlete. He's an electric driver to the basket, plays with toughness. Motor plays an attack mode really came on towards the end of his freshman season. I'm their Purdue. I think he built on that in that Team USA championship run that he had. And he's really got one big question mark is what is he going to be as a three point shooter? He's if he can get that three point shooting percentage up to 35 to 38%. He's a big time prospect because he is just absolutely everything else that you're looking for in an MBA two guard score and defender. And so shooting is going to be the big question. And you know, looking scouts saw him in high school and thought he was a pretty good shooter. Not sure what really happened during his freshman year at Purdue where he struggled from the three point line. He also did struggle for Team USA again in limited minutes and on a limited schedule in the under 19 FIBA championships here. But if that's the thing that he can actually sort of nail at the next level, I think ivy is a guy who could even creep into the conversation for the number one pick in the draft and be the one guy I think that could actually really challenge Jaden hardy if he gets that jump shot going, but that's a big if right now. And that's the thing we'll be watching him carefully for. And number 8, it's Patrick Baldwin junior, another freshman. This guy 6 9 two 26 11 wing, maybe just one of the best perimeter players in this draft guy that can really shoot the basketball at 6 9 and has this sort of size and length to be able to shoot over defenders. Interestingly, forgo, going to one of those blue chip colleges to play for his dad, at Milwaukee, so, you know, he's in the horizon league. He's not going to be playing against elite competition, which may hurt his stock a little bit. He's also not like an elite or particularly explosive athlete, but he has just a beautiful stroke. He can really shoot the basketball and you know this is going to be his calling card to the NBA. And if he really is sinking threes at a high percentage this year, you know, he's gonna be Corey kissberg all over again, you know, where do you draft a guy who just is a lights out shooter and the only difference here is that Baldwin will be 19 on draft night, not 22, like kissberg. And so again, somebody that I'm really looking forward to seeing this year will be a little bit harder to scout him than some of the other guys because of where he's playing, but certainly an intriguing prospect. At number 9, it's Yannick zoza the the big man from the Congo who's playing in Spain right now from malaga, 6 11, two 15 7 6 wingspan, watching him as a 17 year old, he looked like he could become an all NBA defensive team player. Maybe even a guy that could win defensive player of the year at some point, prospect. I mean, that's what he looked like at a 17 year old plane and the highest league in Europe for the Spanish team this year really loved him as offense. You know, he really runs the floor hard. He can kind of finish around the basket, but overall I would call his offense awkward. There was just it clearly doesn't come naturally to him the same way that playing defense comes naturally to him and you knew that was going to be the big issue for him early in the draft. He's actually struggled in his current season over in Spain right now. Average in just two points to rebounds a game and about 13 minutes a game in his first 8 games, that's a big disappointment. Michael Eric and American veteran has kind of come over and.
"jaden ivy" Discussed on Game Theory Podcast
"But I think you might be right. You might be correct that the league might be more willing to take a risk on some of these guys that are that just have so much in their bag already as a score and can create that way. Even if they are deficient in certain other parts of their game because Jaden hardy right now is not yet like an NBA average passer and distributor and decision maker for what his role will be in the NBA. He's not yet a league average defender for what his role will be in the NBA. So it will see what happens with Jaden hardy. Like I am really excited to see what he looks like in the G league. I would expect points. That'll be points. Yes. There will be blood there will be points. He's at the very least a very strong two level score right now if you can really add some more to his finishing package. Think that would. That would help his case anyway to be in that discussion for the top three to 5 guys. Okay, let's go to Jaden ivy now who's a 6 four guard at perdue. A little bit more athletic in my opinion than what Jaden hardy is more questions on the jumper though. And I don't necessarily know that there are the similar questions as a passer, but it's probably pretty close. Like they're definitely both more on the scoring side of the ledger than the distribution side. Yeah. Sort of still a head scratch for me because he came out late NCAA season and he had that 26 point performance when Purdue was knocked out of the tournament by north Texas. And then he had a good summer. He won a gold medal Team USA U 19 had 16 points in championship game versus France. He was second on the human scoring, named the alternative team, but last year he was a sub 40% shooter from the field, barely 39.9, 26% from three, his form isn't bad. It's pretty compact that he goes straight up and down, but he just needs to shoot it for me to really get on board. I'm not worried about him getting paint touches in us first step. He's pretty dexterous around the rim. He moves from a white mouse well away from the ball. It's how much of a jump is his shooting going to take. Is it going to be a 34% shooter? We're going to try to sell ourselves if he's still around that 30%. What's it really going to take? So this is where I think having the knowledge of his high school numbers is important because Jade and ivy was a consistent 40% three point shooter in high school..
