    LOL. Remember when Poole was the next Warrior superstar and he was Curry 2.0 and all that bullshit? It was like 4 weeks ago.
    Well, this is only his 3rd season right?
    He is still well right on track

    Zion is 6'6.
    but similar type of body where he his weight is unusual for a guy his size yet creates a physical advantage.

    Yes, so "listed at 6'6 but closer to 6'4" does not mean he is 6'4, it means he is 6'4.9 or less, so probably about 6'5. Zion is also listed at 6'6 and is probably closer to 6'5. So... one inch we are quibbling over, if that?

    Haha yes I distinctly remember people in these threads saying that and wondering if there was another Poole in the league.

    Chuck was listed at 6'6" as well. So they are at the least very similar in size.
    6'4

    Most overrated Raptor of all time. People now act like he was some sort of tough, savvy vet who was indispensable when he was really mostly just an asshole who did a lot of stupid shit. Toronto fans had a bizarre affection for those kind of tough guys for years (lots still do).

    I don't like Green but he's been integral to GSW's success, though, he certainly isn't the primary reason for it. He's the right guy, in the right place at the right time and took advantage of it - good for him. But the NBA PR machine, er NBA media, acts like he's some all time great cause he won rings, which isn't really the whole story,
    Toronto oakley wasn't new york oakley though. He was at one time a very good player. Draymond is obviously more skilled but of course oak would have fit nice with steph, klay and kd because steph, klay and kd

    poole is a better slightly taller version of gtj that is SPOT on... he cannot create offense easily for others and thus struggles to run offence but with klay or steph out catching a break he is relied upon more.

    Duncan Robinson got a lot of flack for being unplayable in the last series. Jordan Poole is just as unplayable and Poole is like a better version of Gary Trent Jr.

    Draymond is also unplayable. Worst player on the court. 2 points, 6 fouls in 35 mins?

    I have Duncan at 1, Dirk #2 and Barkley #3.

    Giannis is not a PF man. He's a point-forward like LeBron.

    Anyway, Barkley is the complete definition of a unicorn. He was a 6'4 PF. 6'4! and he was dominant. You're never going to see another 6'4 PF again.
    a healthy zion?

    Lol. Let's say the Warriors win the championship this year. Would anyone really rather have Draymond over ringless Jayson Tatum? lol. It's getting ridiculous. guyroch mentioned Charles Barkley. I'd rather have Charles Barkley's basketball career than Draymond's career. I'm taking Barkley 10/10 and it's not even close. Dude is an all time great. Top 3 PF of all time imo. Who cares if he didn't win a championship?
