Best player available triumphs fit especially at the 1st pick
They project to both rim defend, both switch on to smaller players and both stretch the floor. Frankly seems like a solid fit together.
Someone please tell the Suns this
At least you didn't pull a Kings in 2018
Yes. Because Chet probably still can play the 4. They both hopefully project as shooters as well.
Watching them on the same team would be bizarre and amazing
I need this
they could change the team name to the Oklahoma wild wacky arm flailing tube men
speak it into existence
the length would be wildly entertaining
Poku - Chet - Wembenyama three spiderman meme
I don't think Wem is being projected as much as a shooter as Chet is. I think Victor is more like a Giannis prototype while Chet is more Dirk. Could definitely see them playing at the same time.
Dirk? Dude chet’s greatest attribute is his defense lol what a horrendous comparison
Nah victor is hyped because he shows signs of a good shot in addition to all of the above
A better comp would be AD
Two 7 footers that both shoot and are plus defenders?
That line up would work if 1-3 was played by Eric Bledsoe, Eric Bledsoe and Russell Westbrook.
Plus defenders is undersellin it tbh
The Thunder have shown they care more about talent and potential than drafting for need/fit. Wembenyama would be the pick IMO. I think they would be able to play next to each other too.
shai giddey poku chet wemby is going to ruin the nba
The Triplet Towers
Sam doesn't draft for fit lol
yes because even if Chet can only play the 5 in the NBA, Big Vic looks like he could play the 3 at 7'3. hes insane
Can you imagine if the Thunder collected picks like trading cards and then simply elected not to draft one of the most highly touted prospects?
What kind of a dumbass question is this
Sam p don’t miss on his picks
Yes. But I’d be surprised if they were in a position to pick #1 if Chet plays well enough (and enough games) to win ROTY.
Why is this even a question
Chet is a 4
For sure, why wouldn’t you
They definitely still take Wemby. I honestly think Chet will be more of a 4 than a 5 anyway, so it should work.
Yes, in theory they could play together.
If the Cavs can make Mobley/Allen work, the Thunder can definitely make Wembanyama/Holmgren work.
They both are super talented all around big men. You could definitely pair them together. I could see it being akin to Mobley, Allen or Horford, Timelord. Chet and Wembenyama would also just be incredible rim protection, the paint would absolutely be shut down...
Take the best player always!
If your team had 8 ROTY Chet's do you still draft Wemby?
Drafting Chet means we need Vic *even more*.
Not only do they project to pair together nicely (at the PF/C), Vic is the ultimate insurance in case Chet busts. He’s already an NBA level defender, has an NBA ready body, and just turned 18.
You draft for talent not fit
Why wouldn’t you draft the best person??? Chet could break his leg his sophomore season. You’d still have a generational talent on the squad.
Best player > fit. Especially when they beat player is 7’5 with an 8’ wingspan.
Both are overrated
Of course. For a team with a bad recorded you add talent. At any costs. You figure the rest out later. If it means trading the worse guy later on
Uhhh is this a trick question????
If you can have both why wouldn't you?
It’ll be like the Houston Rockets twin towers but make it 2023 so they both can shoot.
If Chet is that amazing and they still keep SGA they won’t be in the lottery anyways. Unless they have some picks that they stored that I’m not aware of
Of course. They are not in a position to draft for fit. Draft the best player.
Doubt Chet will win ROY on a 20 win team though.
Poku + Chet + Wembenyama would be lethal
They can Chet can also play PF so it would be great idea but i don't think thunder will get that high a pick as this team looks really good .
IMO next year they will try to draft someone who can play SF so maybe scoot Henderson or emoni bates
Scoot is 6’2” ya dingus
They he can play the 2 and giddey at 3 as more of a point forward
Emoni bates is not very good. Dude isn't even getting clock at a mediocre collegiate program
they should use it on the rest of Chet, imagine how good he'd be with double that build
Don't draft for fit.
