  • Lol, Wiseman making Kellerman look pretty bad. SAS is the only guy who made any sense here. Dude is 7’ tall, has shoulders like Dwight Howard, but unlike Howard, wiseman can actually shoot the ball.

  • Either way the Warriors are great at pickin em and developing em. They like that guy uk that's always buying shitty houses and cars that have good bones, then fixing em up and flippin em for 10x what they payed. I think Wiseman can be a great addition, but if not they'll make em the best he can be and trade him for someone they really need. I never doubt this organization.

  • Stephen A... Jay ain't like u and Max, u only needed to say Jay once and he was listening. Lmao, dude says Jay like 10x while he's already silent (and i am taking into account the slight signal delay). Dudes so used to communicating that way at this point that he thinks that's just how everyone does it now.

  • One clown says he and Draymond are similar players. The other one says DeAndre Jordan. Did they ever see him play? At all? He has a better offensive skillset and more tools (offensively) than both of those guys right NOW. Through two games it's safe to say he can stroke the three ball. I knew that already. Wondering if these two are talking just to hear themselves talk....

  • Everything Jay Will and Max said in this video was proven wrong first game of the season against Brooklyn. Wiseman hit like four 3s amd scored 19 in 25 min. Along eith 4 rebounds and 2 steals

  • The Warriors never had a legit Center. Like the Chicago Bulls never had a talent like Wiseman. It’s only a question of how fast Wiseman develops. You don’t get better by not selecting a seven foot freak athlete. Klay Thompson’s availability doesn’t change Wiseman’s value. Quite frankly, it only enhances it. Few teams will be able to single him in the paint. Double Wiseman and get murdered by Steph.

  • The sad thing is there not any James Wiseman highlights and game play videos for people see how talented he is! He might be a big man but he's going shock people how much of a well rounded game he has! This why he was the projected number 1 pick! Great fit for the warriors who needed that guy!

  • I really doubt these guys even watch the games. Wiseman is an athletic big man who can shoot and run the floor. He isn’t one of these traditional low post centers. Wiseman is more of a Kevin Garnett type than he is Deandre Jordan.

  • Why do they say Wiseman cannot shoot. He is so young. Nobody really knows for sure. But a big man who moves well sounds good to me. And by the way he averaged 19 points in 23 minutes at college. Sounds like he can shoot to me.

  • Raymond and Wiseman are not similar. GS has lacked a low post presence for years. most teams don't have decent centers that can rule the block. Wiseman opens the court for Steph. Wiseman scored 23 pts in college playing 20 mins. have you seen Wiseman? he's a beast with an animal mentality. and he can run the floor as well. best puck they could have chosen. Wiseman to me is the best player in the draft. period.

  • Jay. Man. Wow! You said Bogut was a scoring threat. And a perimeter scorer at that. I had to mean passing threat. I’m sure that was a mistake.

  • Should’ve drafted LaMelo. He could’ve allowed Steph to play combo guard/shooting guard. They could’ve traded Draymond since he isn’t the defender he once was and his playmaking ability is lacking when GSW doesn’t have the overwhelming talent advantage. Steph, Wiggins, LaMelo and some shooters gets you the 6th or 7th seed. You tread water until Klay comes back in 2022. While developing LaMelo for the future under Steph Curry. Idk how that wasn’t on people’s mind even with Klay healthy. It’s not like rebounding mattered to the warriors before. Even when they lost to Toronto. Toronto had mor offensive fire power with Kawhi, Vanvleet, Lowry, Siakim, Green, Gasol, Ibaka. It was raining 3’s. I saw numerous draft comparisons for Wiseman to Deandre Jordan. That is not who I want the Number 2 overall pick to become. Now if Wiseman could be Deandre Ayton then that’s a different story.

  • Man, Steph, Wiggins, and Kelly will run the floor, Draymond will run and create and defend, Wiseman just needs to rim run, set picks, rebound, and play solid D without fouls. It’s a lot for a rookie, but it’s possible.
