I voted for Pivec because I am an impossible homer

I think a lot of these players have potential if they are given the chance. Holmes in my opinion has one of the highest ceilings of any player in the draft if a team shows patience AND she is willing to put in the work. Pevic is also a player I like. I think she could be a good energy backup in a few years.

I'm not sure her game will translate but she's one of those hard working, down-to-earth, unassuming kids that you (I) hope will make it. With all the big egos in Atlanta she may just fit and be able to contribute under the radar.

I 100% agree. She has both an intriguing basketball skillset and a really fantastic way of carrying herself. Humble, hard-working, and very magnanimous. Too, looking at the Dream's back-up guards, she has a chance of making the cut, particularly if the European guards don't show up.

I didn't like us picking Holmes when it happened, but thinking about it, she does have that "high upside" factor to her. I hope our coaches give her a hard look before they let her go. It's wildly unrealistic, but I really want both of our later-round picks to make the team. Sad

Cazorla is expected to show. Babkina is irrelevant.

I thought that Montpremier was the most undervalued because I feel that she has more upside than those who were drafted around her. While I admittedly don't watch many college games, I watched a highlight reel on Montpremier. Yes, I know highlight reels only show the good side, but the first few plays had me thinking that I was watching a good shot blocker with lots of height, and all of a sudden, I see this explosive drive to the basket from the top of the key. It really raised my eyebrows. You can't teach height and speed.

I think 2nd round picks were made for boom-bust players. I wish the Liberty had spent one on Montpremier. I never criticize busts with 20-20 hindsight when I feel they were justified gambles.

Can you believe it? Brittany Brewer was drafted before Mompremier. Very Happy

I didn’t at first , but after the injury and the transfer situation that clearly played a part in her draft position. Same can be said for Cooper. Personality and past situations possibly mattered? Either way No way The Iowa guard or Brewer have a better career than either.

LV looks short a post or two especially if Cambage or other Internationals Musina and/or Park wait for 2021

I think Laimbeer will snap up Mompremier or Holmes in a heart-beat if/when they get cut, might take a long look at Odom or Jones as a big 2/3 if the Liberty cut either and it still looks to me like one of Anigwe or Gustafson gets cut I could see Laimbeer picking up Anigwe pretty quickly as well.

I won't be shocked at all if LV ends up like (in 2020)

Plum/Robinson/Allen
McBride/Rodgers
McCoughtry/J. Young
Hamby/Holmes or Odom
Wilson/Anigwe or Mompremier

On the other end of the court, she has decent length, found herself in the passing lanes regularly and has a few highlight reel blocks that are fun to watch.

Ummmmmmm, Laksa being not only on this list, but the first one listed immediately deters me from reading the rest of the list. Confused Laughing

Ok, I just looked at the rest of the list. Just 4 names on it, and Laksa and Ogwumike make up half of it?? But then I realized, the author is part of the group of guys that did that weird mock draft that included their own trade ideas. So it all makes sense. (or should I say, it all doesn't make sense Laughing )

Just saying it once: Brewer. Is. Good. Cool Longevity/productivity are tough to predict, but I think she has a chance. Of course, Gustafson didn't make a roster (right away) so, who knows.

I voted for Pivec, just cuz she's the workhorse kinda kid that has a tough resiliency/jack of all trades kinda mentality that carries these rookies further than one might expect from stats alone.

I love this line about Laksa:

Quote:
She is a multifaceted scorer and a tall but versatile body, not dissimilar to Seattle’s Breanna Stewart.

My guess is that Vegas of all teams would be tracking post players that get hung out to dry on the waiver wire. So I'm looking at the Brewer/Coates battle out in Atlanta, the Gülich/Mompremier battle out in LA, and maybe other less obvious ones.

(Lord, I'm tired of talking in hypotheticals at this point.)

OFFENSIVE COMPARISON. Evil or Very Mad

I am 98% convinced this guy doesn't actually watch the games. (The other 2% is attributed to the fact that truly braindead people simply exist.)
