    Default Who to draft? Burke or Oladipo?

    I say Burke, but a lot of people are saying Oladipo.

    Fun little hypothetical. I will go ahead and get it out of the way: We won't be in a position to draft either one, but just argument's sake, I'll play.

    I would take Oladipo, because I think he's a better two way player than Burke.

    Thread prediction: This thread will quickly morph into IU fans being called homers.

    I'd take Oladipo just because he's got an NBA style game already and will become the better pro. Given that, he'll be gone in the lottery. So unless we deal Danny for a higher first (which I wouldn't necessarily be opposed to if it got us Oladipo and let us resign everyone) we won't get him.

    I HATE IU, and I'd take Victor. Burke, while good, is too reliant on an inconsistent jumper/having the ball in his hands. Victor can play off the ball much better, has better energy, and seems to be much smarter with the ball. Burke gets in his head that he needs to take a ton of big shots/gets caught up in the one on one mentality.

    I think Oladipo could be an all-defensive team type of player as well. Tons of upside.

    I wouldn't be all that upset if he decided to go pro. As long as the Pacers don't draft him anyway.

    Burke because there's a 1% chance he'll still be left when we pick, unlike Oladipo where there is 0%.

    To be fair, whenever there is a player from the State of Indiana, every(and by every I mean a lot of before you freak out) Pacers fan from Indiana is infatuated with them.

    See Eric Gordon, Mike Conely, Eric Gordon, Gordan Hayword, Greg Oded, Eric Gordon, and pretty much every other player from Indiana in history.

    Victor Oladipo is from the DC area.

    But he plays for IU so every IU fan will want the Pacers to sign him. I know Burke will be drafted higher but than won't matter to IU fans. They still want Alford.... ...

    Shut, I'll go further than that on Oladipo. I don't think he'll be there when the Pistons pick. If Oladipo shoots well in pre-draft workouts, I think he'll go in the top 5 and be the first IU player off the board. As p4e stated in another thread, it's a similar rise to Russell Westbrook (not that I'm comparing the two).

    As for Burke, nothing that he does on the court changes this fact: He's 6 foot tall. He doesn't have elite speed (ala Ty Lawson) and he's not Chris Paul, which limits his ceiling as far as draft stock goes. He'll probably still be gone by the time the Pacers pick though.

    Fred Jones could jump like VO, I'll give you that. . Other than that... well, Fred couldn't guard anyone, couldn't shoot anything he couldn't dunk, and had poor handles. Vic needs to tighten up his handles too.

    The kid works hard, is intelligent, plays smart, is wicked athletic, has 2-guard size, and is ready to defend NBA players right now.
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    Default Re: Who to draft? Burke or Oladipo?

    Based on nbadraft.net and their current mock draft, players I would take that fall after the Pacers pick over Burke and Oladipo are:

    Doug McDermott
    Tim Hardaway Jr
    CJ Leslie
    Lorenzo Brown
    Patric Young

    I like Gorgui Dieng, but we don't really need a Center. Lucas Nogueira interests me as well, I don't know much about him - however we could just develop him in the NBDL for a few years or keep him overseas. Seems very athletic for a big guy, if we give him a good coach, could turn out to be a steal.

    You said "from Indiana" and then listed a bunch of players that are from Indiana. I just corrected you.

    Are you saying that you would take all five of these players over Victor and Trey?

    Wait, are you telling me that you would pick all of those players ahead of Burke and Oladipo? Wow. I guess when Carolina sucks you don't watch much college basketball.

    I'm thinking that only one guy out of that group can defend at an NBA level. Can you pick him out?

    I meant, they have been in Indiana at some point before going to the NBA - playing at IU counts in my book as being from Indiana. I see what your saying, but you knew what I meant.
