Because they dont wanna deal with Lavar Ball. He destroyed Lonzo career. Hope Lamelo dont have to go through that.

Hey now, wake up, People !! t's like everybody gets lulled to sleep, forgetting that there is no such thing anymore as a "franchise big man" - those days are over for the moment. Most all big men don't even see playing time when the playoffs get right down to the gritty, so gimme a break unless this kid Wiseman can shoot consistent 38 to 40% from three and is fast enough to cover 3s and 4s -then please, stop.... I hate this new game personally, but it's the reality now.

The warriors have already curry and klay but klay got injured tho but they still got curry if they draft lamelo looks like it will be just the same and that's why they draft James Wiseman because a great center and it will be a great help if they draft lamelo nothing will happen because the offense of lamelo it will be just the same

I just think this shouldn’t even be a discussion of why they drafted wiseman over ball. Warriors doesn’t need a point guard, they needed a center, a big man like Wiseman, ball can’t start in the starting line up over curry that isn’t possible. So that explains it!

Steph isn't gonna give up 15 possessions a game so LaMelo can do a bad D'Angelo Russell impersonation. Wiseman is a High Floor/High Ceiling player, he's a skilled big with freakish athleticism and real shooting potential. GSW made the right decision.

I'm going to have to disagree that Wiseman is better than any big man they have had. Javelle Mcgee won me over, hes a two time Champion and a League leading shot blocker. I'm not so sure that a college kid with a few college games under his belt is better. Potentially big not automatically. I didn't like this pick. I thought they should have taken Lamelo. You can rent a big man these days to give you everything Wiseman brings.

We for sure needed a big man but we also don’t have a bench really the only other person I like really is pascall. Curry is definitely a monster but the big thing is if he’s healthy I would of took lamelo just so curry can prep him incase he suffers clays fate and just got a big man from free agency or thru trade we just don’t have anyone to trade really but if it’s true we going for oubre that be great but golden state know what they doing they already counting us out saying our days of a good record are over

GS can afford to miss that pick, twolves just spun off years in mediocrity. Whatever the owner was afraid of has cost the twolves dearly. They pick a guard with two previous guards one in trade one draft pick? That is insanity! Let's go Melo!!!

With klay out I think next season will be about just giving James the keys to the team. Warriors won’t beat anybody in the WCF or finals without Klay. They’ll let the young guy do his thing so that next year him steph and Klay can be ready

Golden State obviously knows a shooter when they see one. Why would they draft a clown that shoots like MKG, but thinks he can shoot at Curry's volume? Lamelo has Westbrook level irrational confidence without the motor or skill.

Wiseman was the by far the best choice. I mean, this dude is not just 7'1" and an excellent athlete, he's highly skilled for a 19 year old. James is an excellent rim protector, he can rebound and getting better there, and he has a soft touch and can dive to rim at a high level in the pick and roll. Steph is going to love working with offense and will open up options for Curry like no other center he's ever played for.
